Keep “Calm” with the new Rimmel London Lip Balms


Looking for a new lip balm with a hint of color? Check out the new Keep Calm line from Rimmel London a 5 shade lip balm line that moisturizes and leaves a hint of color. I sampled the Shop, Play and Party shades and Party was by far my favorite.

You can see from the swatches below Shop goes on sheer, Play had a touch of pink and Party definitely has a pretty fresh pink tint. I like that these balms had just a hint of color and weren’t glossy. I love gloss and lipstick but sometimes a girl just needs a good lip balm with just a kiss of color.

If anything could stand up to 8+ hours a day in a water park I would be good to go all summer. I was at Target stocking up on some travel essentials and decided to see what I could find.

Celebrate the first date of summer with Rimmel London!

I was going through these new products by Rimmel London, and put them all together – and you have a gorgeous summery look!

Let’s start with the lips. This color, “Red Alert,” is from their Moisture Renew line. It reminds me a lot of Rihanna’s Riri lipstick from MAC (and about a third of the price!). The red is bold and beautiful. My house has a 70’s glow, so I don’t know if the color translates well in this picture, but it’s a gorgeous red! Love it! It goes on smooth – and then STAYS PUT.

Lips so cared for, true colour is maximised! Maximised, radiant colour. Innovative formula with 3 super Moisturisers. Lips feel up to 70% more hydrated and up to 60% smoother! SPF 20, Vitamins A, C and E for protected lips.
