This one’s for my fellow typography hounds. I had my latest You know you’re a font nerd… moment the other day when I laid eyes on the scripty font on these here tubes of Rimmel Royal Gloss ($7 each).
Isn’t it cute? I’ve been trying to track it down, but no luck yet.
I have two of the 10 new shades, Sweet Lust (the shimmery pink) and Candy Rush (the shimmery coral), and I think both of them are aptly named because, daaaang, they’re sweet! They take the phrase, “Give mama some sugar,” to a whole new level.
They have a slippery, thin consistency and non-sticky texture that feels smooth and soothing on my lips. I expected them to apply sheer, but instead they pack a healthy dose of medium pigmentation.
As for the way they taste and smell… it’s a little artificial. Not exactly om noms to me. Sweet Lust reminds me of synthetic strawberry shake, and Candy Rush, which I like a little more, makes me think of overly strong orange soda.

On top of that, they only seem to last about an hour before needing to be reapplied.
For $7, I think they’re probably worth a try. You never know how you’ll feel about a fragrance until you sniff it for yourself, right? I wouldn’t say I’m in lurve with these (with the exception of the font on the tubes), but I am interested enough to be curious about the other flavors/shades.
Right now they’re kinda difficult to find online, but I have seen them at Target. If you do decide to give them a try, let me know what you think about ‘em in the comments. I’m curious about those other shades… Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B-/C+
