Finally it’s pouring here in Mumbai and it’s such a relief from the scorching heat! June had never been so hot and dry, I tell ya! But then rains bring gloomy days with it that makes us want to stay inside and then you just wait for the right opportunity to click pictures. Ah, the perks of beauty blogging!

My Experience with Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Ultimate:

I admit I’m not a lipstick person so I do not hoard tons of lipsticks or lip liners for that matter. This is my first product from Rimmel and I’m really impressed with their product quality.

Packaging: It comes in retractable plastic body in the colour of the lip liner itself so it’s really easy to spot. The product which I have is of older packaging. The newer version has a slanted tip and bears the Rimmel logo at the end of the pencil. The cap shuts tight so you don’t need to worry about it while carrying around.

Colour and Texture: Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Ultimate is a warm chestnut brown. It is decently pigmented and it applies really smoothly without any tugging. You don’t need to drag or pull your lips to apply it as it is creamy enough. On my pigmented lips, the colour looks a nice warm brown but I guess on non-pigmented lips, the colour might turn out a little dark.

Once set, it is smudge proof and non transferable and it helps lipstick from bleeding. The lip liner stays on for a commendable 5+ hours on my lips with light meals, after which it starts fading. If worn as a full lip colour on its own, it dries out the lips so make sure you exfoliate your lips and apply a lip balm.

  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • Very pigmented.
  • Applies really smoothly.
  • Long lasting colour.
  • Prevents lipstick from bleeding.

What I dont like about Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Ultimate:

  • Some might find this particular shade a bit vampy.
  • Less quantity.
  • Because it’s really creamy, I fear the tip might break.

Rating: 4.5/5

Final Thoughts: Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Ultimate may not be everyone’s cup of tea but if you’re looking for a long lasting lip liner that is smooth enough, I’d recommend this range to you. I’m surely getting the shade Eastened Snob from this range.
