Not a Rave Review #6: Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lasting Lip Tint Pen


It's been a while since I wrote a NARR post so felt it perfect timing to review the Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lasting Tint Pen. As much as I love most of the Rimmel products I've tried ( I'm thinking of doing a Rimmel Best and Worst Post soon) I was really let down with this.

Like the majority of felt tip style lip pens that are out on the market (or that I have read reviews of anyway), this lip pen has extremely poor pigmentation and even when layers and layers are applied, the shade I own (Endless Blossom) hardly shows up on the lips, making it pointless applying it in the first place. In addition, the pen itself is drying on the lips and clings to dry patches. Even with the added balm, the balm itself is drying and doesn't help to enhance the colour or improve the wear as the colour can't be seen anyway.

That being said, I do like the concept of a felt tip pen applicator as I feel if you could see the colour you were applying, this would make application much easier.

Overall I do not like this lip products. I am unsure as to whether mine was just a faulty product/colour or the line is all as bad as this but I will definitely not be buying anymore.

  1. I love the idea of these products but for me, they don't work. They dry up after first application and are a waste of money! The KIKO ones are beautiful though - lots of pigmentation, last all day, non-drying, taste/smell gorgeous and so far they've haven't dried up. You can see my review/swatches here if you like -


  2. I have the same lip pen and found it didn't work well at first, but now it's been used a few times it works really well and the tip has softened, I know it sounds strange but try biting the tip because it softens the end and makes more of the colour come out, hope this helped x

  3. I love the colour, this looks so lovely! x
