Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer

Rimmel has hit a home run with this formula! These lip lacquers have the pigmentation of some of the best lipsticks with the easy application of a gloss. Although, you will need the mirror as they are super pigmented; so you will want to make sure that you apply them without making a mess.  The Show Off line offers 14 shades with a variety of finishes and retails for a modest $4.99 at Walgreens.
This formula is more like a liquid lipstick rather than a gloss but the pigmentation rivals some of the best lipsticks. I think that most would agree that MAC's amplified finish gives some of the most opaque coverage of any lipstick. I will admit that it took a couple of swipes to build Cosmo (shown on the right) but the Show Off was one quick swipe. I would even go so far as to say that the Show Off is more pigmented.
Luna, Comet and Nova are all cream formulas with no shimmer.  Luna is a bright coral color which leans peach rather than pink.  Comet is a darker neutral which seems a bit brown on my fair skin.  Nova is a bright medium pink.  These are truly an amazing product at any price but they are an absolute steal at under five bucks.  As an avid couponer who hates to pay full price for anything, I gladly paid the price for these and they are worth every penny.
