During the month of March, all Rimmel lipsticks are 50% off at Walgreens, so since there was a sale, I purchased eight lipsticks in the beginning of the month. Most of the lipsticks I purchased were from their new Matte Finish line, which are the red tubes..
109 is described as a bright orange.
The lipstick has "Kate ♥" in black on the red tube.
For the first lip picture, I took it in direct sunlight. The other two were taken indoor, with the middle one being in front of the window.
Although the color of the lipstick is described as a bright orange, it shows more like a orange-coral on me.
This is the first lipstick that I have tried from all the others ones I have purchased. Before this, I only owned one Rimmel Lipstick in shade 04 (dark purple). 109 is a nice wearable orange coral, however, it applied very unevenly for me, so you are able to see some patches of my lips that are not covered from the lipstick. It has a sweet scent to it, which reminds me of Asian dried plums (I don't know if that is a good thing), but it fades away after a while. Although it claims to be a "matte finish", I feel like these have a bit of a shine to it. I love the color, but I am not a fan of the application since it applies very patchy. Another thing I wish these had were names because I feel like it is harder for me to remember numbers of lipsticks instead of names.
What do you think about Rimmel's lipsticks? Have you tried any before? Are there any shades that you like?
