|L-R: Drive Me Nude, Not An Illusion, Give Me a Cuddle, On Fire, Rumour Has It, The Redder The Better, Keep Mauving|
We've seen these type of products all over the beauty market for the past few years. Clinique led the way, Revlon, Pixi, Soap & Glory and Bourjois followed (to name but a few!). One of the last to jump on the bandwagon is Rimmel.

|The Redder The Better|
Either way these are undeniably lovely. They come in seven shades, and where Rimmel got it a little wrong with the shade choices for the Moisture Renew line, they got it all right with these. I would personally wear every single one of these colours and I think they've also managed to choose flattering colours for most skins tones.
I'm not sure if these will be an instant sell-out like the Revlon lip butters (remember the frenzy they created?!) because they are quite late in the game when it comes to balms, but I think some colours will disappear fast (Rumour Has It, The Redder The Better and Not An Illusion are my bets). I personally prefer these to the Revlon Lip Butters or Balm Stains.
All in all, another hit for Rimmel here. I'm very impressed. These are out now, priced at £5.99.
