my big bang theory

I've mentioned before that I'm a bit apprehensive about lip color. I prefer nudes and neutrals to pinks and reds. But one of my goals with this blog is to branch out and try things I'm not necessarily comfortable with. That goal is easier to pursue when I receive free things! Earlier this week, I got a prize pack from Influenster that included Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Big Bang. (P.S. Do you watch Big Bang Theory? Are you caught up? No spoilers, but did you freak out while watching the last episode?)
It goes on like a gloss but wears like a lipstick, which allows for easy application while being long-lasting. However, because the color is precise like a lipstick, and because I have a relatively undefined vermillion border (a fancy term I learned doing research for a medical malpractice case), I applied some lip liner ex post facto. Next time I use this, I'll line first.

I was pretty impressed with the way the color stayed throughout the day. The picture on the right, taken when I finally needed to reapply color, was taken after I had eaten dinner. Of course you expect to reapply after eating, so there were no disappointments in the lacquer's longevity.

This product comes in a variety of colors, and I'd be interested to try some of the others that I might wear on a more regular basis.

While I received this product complimentary, I will never share opinions on this blog that are not entirely my own. 


  1. You definitely need to start wearing brights more! This color looks great on you!

  2. Holy cow, I love the early in the day pic!
