Rimmel London's Under My Spell: A Short & Sweet Review
Deep red, blue red, orange red, crimson red—everywhere you turn, people are talking about striking red lipsticks for every occasion. But me? I am a huge fan of purple lipsticks (much like Jamelia who rounded up a few of her current favorites a few weeks ago in Purple Lips Galore: 3 Gloriously Fantastic Shades I Am Currently Coveting).
Inspired after seeing painted plum lips on the faces of some of my favorite celebs, I hit the stores and to my delight, found that purple lipstick comes in literally every imaginable shade.
And now, I am the proud owner of several different shades. However, my favorite one is a dark magenta shade from Rimmel London. It’s called Under My Spell and it’s a matte lipstick with a nice satin feel.
It builds really well, so I can put on a little bit for a subtle look, or layer it to make it really deep. Many lipsticks I’ve used in the past would come off very easily or fade within a few hours, but I’ve had a lot of luck with this one! It’s been my go-to ever since I bought it and it stays on almost all day with very minimal touch-up. Sometimes I put on lip gloss over the lipstick to change it up a bit, and it looks really nice.
Overall, I think this lipstick is high-quality, affordable and uber-flattering. Try it out.
