Im sure many of us have those times when we go to the store to buy 1 thing and come out with 5.. This happens to me every single time I go out..EVERY SINGLE TIME. such was the case when I went to the Rimmel counter to buy some stuff for my to-be bhabis makeup bag and ended up buying a whole hoard of stuff for myself 🙂 One of the goodies was this lipstick called Eyes on Me. I dont usually go for such highly pigmented shades but i tried it out and was wowed by how different (read daring and bold) it made me look….That was that and I snapped it up on the spot!
This range of lippies come in the royal blue packaging with the crown motif on the top, slanted lid. The shade range and name is mentioned on the base.
Color: Eyes on Me is a brick red color on me. Its saved from being a boring brown by that red splash which makes the shade oh so sexy. Its perfect for someone like me who detests muddy browns but is too chicken to wear reds.
Texture: The texture is super creamy..wait, scratch that.. make it SUPER DUPER CREAMY. Its easy to slick on and does not dry out my lips at any point. But then again, this luxurious creamy texture also ensures that after about 3hrs of wear, it starts to settle into my lip lines which is so unflattering.
Pigmentation: Like most shades in this range, this one too is highly pigmented and fully opaque in just 1 swipe. Multiple swipes only accentuates the lip lines.
Staying Power: It stays for about 2.5 to 3hrs on me and fades into a reddish stain. I dont mind this but those who buy this bcoz its from the Lasting finish range may find it a bit disappointing in this regard.
Blush reccomendation: With this lippy, i like to wear lighter shades since a dark blush would may one look overdone given the intensity of this lipstick shade. I usually pair this with a blush like MAC Blushbaby or NYX cream blush in Tea Rose.
Whom would this shade suit?
Like i mentioned above, this is perfect for those looking for a bold and bright shade but dont prefer deep reds or browns. This would suit even those with pigmented lips easily.
