Rimmel Airy Fairy Lipstick Review

Hey everybody. I got a request from one of my readers to try this product. And I must say I'm very glad I did because its one of my new all-time favorites!!

The color I would describe it as a light mauvey pink that has nude undertones but still looks pink. When I swatched the product I noticed that it had a slight sheen to it but I think it's okay to have this since I have small lips and the shine helps emphasize my lips.

The color comes of a slightly opaque but it builds as you layer it. I think it a great light pink great since I have tanned skin and very pigmented lips and this color does not make me look like a guidette. It's very hard for people with medium to dark skin to find that perfect pink and I think this one really pulls it off for a lot of skintones.

The best part about this lipstick is that I was able to find it at and it only cost me $5.29. I really love this color and have been wearing it a lot lately. I also like how it smells.

  4. I love Airy Fairy! It is such a pretty nude-ish color that is great for everyday wear :) I also love how it is so smooth on my lips, and it does not dry them out at all. I also have another rimmel lipsticj in Pink Blush. That one is really great too. It is a nice soft pink color.

  5. Beautiful color! :) Btw I don't think your lips are small !

  8. I've been searching forever for a light pink lippie to suit my skintone so I might check this one out. The Rimmel lipstick range is lovely but I'm not too keen on the smell!

    You should try their 'Asia' lipstick - it's a really nice taupey colour... Sami xx
