Rimmel Colour Rush Balms Review

The Rimmel Colour Rush balms were were released quite a while back but whilst there's been a big hype surrounding the Revlon and Bourjois offerings I hadn't seen the Rimmel ones around much before.

On a recent trip I picked up one of these for £1.99 in B&M (now £1.50) and then another one in Poundland, they're still retailing for £4.50 in boots currently! (You can also pick them up from PoundStretcher)


The two shades I picked up are 210 Boom Chic A Boom which is a medium pink, slightly on the cool side and 220 Rumour Has It which is a deeper fuschia pink, and looks almost berry like on.

The packaging is similar to a standard lip crayon, nothing too flashy but bright and colourful! They're quite good however at gaining an idea of the shade. I could just pick up a slight vanilla scent but it's undetectable on.


Onto the application.. These are much more moisturising than I expected! They do provide some hydration when you put them on, especially considering they have quite a glossy finish. It also helps it glide over the dry patches (which is something that I need with the current weather).

They last for about 4-5 hours on me, after which they leave a even stain, the gloss does fade after an hour or two. The shades themselves are quite opaque, almost like lipsticks but with a high shine finish.

Overall, I think they are a great product to snatch up! Whilst I haven't tried many of the Revlon ones to compare, I found these to be just as good as the Bourjois ones, if not better. 220 Rumour Has it has become one of my go to shades for Winter and my favourite from the duo.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Which lip crayons are your favourite?

  1. I've only ever used the Revlon lip crayons but I love the way they look. They also seem to be a bit cheaper than the Revlon ones. I can't wait to get a closer look at them. :)

  5. They sound really lovely for lips in winter especially as they still moisturise, I hope I can get them for as much as of a bargain as you did xxx

  8. These are a bargain and I love the glossy finish to them. The fact that they leave a stain behind is also very appealing as it means your lips are not left looking a mess x
