Rimmel's 'Heart Breaker' Lipstick

As much as I adore vibrant reds and lipsticks with a major impact, they're not always ideal on a day-to-day basis, sometimes I can feel a little too made up especially if I'm dressed down and casual so cue my mission to find a complimentary shade that suits all occasions . 

Typically casting my eyes over a beauty concession I always find myself attracted to the lipstick section and often walk away with a multi-tonal hand of red and pink hues but last week I literally fell in love with a Rimmel beauty called 'Heart Breaker' and to make it even better Zooey Deschanel wears it in the Rimmel advert, swooooon!

Admittedly I picked it up, looked at the label, opened the bullet and thought it was a lovely, dark pinky/purple which would be perfect for Autumn/Winter which is soon upon us and despite having a drawer of perfect shades just like this I went ahead and bought it anyways without testing it.

Once I actually got around to trying it on I was pleasantly surprised at the colour once applied, it is far lighter and more sheer shade than you would imagine from looking at it in the packaging. It is a super lovely pinky plum shade that isn't too overpowering (perfect for a daily basis which is exactly what I was on a mission to find, hurrah!) The lipstick itself is an incredibly creamy and smooth product, glides on instantly giving you a flush of colour and lasts particularly well....I managed to eat out at the weekend without having to reapply.  

No matter how much I try to be adventurous and try other brands I always seem to crawl back to Rimmel for lipsticks, I don't think I've bought a single one yet that I haven't been in love with.
