Not An Illusion | The Colour Rush Balm

Have you ever found a lip product that you just instantly love? Where everything from the colour to the smell is perfect? Ive found this with the Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm in Not An Illusion. I didn't really see the hype behind the crayon style lip colours but i can definitely understand now, this has become a daily essential for me, it's so handy to carry round and so much easier to find in the bottom of my handbag.

Let me start by saying this smells absolutely amazing, almost chocolatey, and it feels so soft and hydrating on the lips. Its feels like you're applying a simple lip balm instead of something with a bit of colour in, and it also looks a lot more natural and not too in your face. The colour of this as absolutely gorgeous too, so understated but adds a lovely pop to an otherwise boring makeup day. Although the first layer does appear quite sheer, it can easily be built up to create a bolder brighter lip. 

The packaging on this is pretty standard of all of the lip crayons and i have noticed that the writing wears away pretty quick, but this isn't really an issue. I also really like the fact the colour on the outside of the tube is a near perfect match for what colour the balm appears on your lips. 

Overall i really do love the Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm in Not An Illusion, its feels so nice on lips, it lasts really well and smells absolutely gorgeous. Definitely going to keep my eye out for the other products in this range! 


  1. I have this too and I absolutely LOVE IT!! Whenever I tell people about it they're all like "ok it's just a lip crayon" but it smells so good and vanilla-y, and the formula is so nice and creamy as well!
