I should probably start a new blog series called something along the lines of ‘How Many Berry Shades Can Rayne Possibly Own’. I have said it before and I will say it again; I am lusting over wine and berry tones for this Autumn and Winter and I have quite quickly built up quite a collection. So here is my third vampy lip shade to be featured in my Lip Look series. Ta daaaa…



Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 120 Cutting Edge with Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Berry Allure over it.

This lipstick is riiight up there with some of my favourites at the moment. Besides for the fab colour, it smells lovely (although I have seen reviews of people hating on the smell), almost like a baby powder kind of smell, just the usual Rimmel lipstick smell actually.

If you apply a few coats the initial colour is incredible, dark and pigmented and vampy. But if you do not apply it with a lipliner then it will start to bleed and go blotchy after about an hour. If you do prime your lips and use a lipliner (I would suggest Revlon’s Vixen or L.A Girls’ Eggplant) then the colour lasts around three hours which is the perfect amount of time if you are wearing it to a dinner date or function.

I would also call this lipstick quite a hydrating one compared to some other brands. It is not drying and it does not pull on your lips when applying it.

Lipstick WITHOUT lipgloss.


At the end of the day I prefer this lipstick without the gloss on top because I like a more matte effect. If my lips were pretty chapped – and we are getting into Winter after all – then I’d stick some gloss on top.

Lipstick and Lipgloss


When I wear this colour I feel super badass and on point BUT I am constantly worrying about smudging it as it will be all too obvious to anyone who walks within a kilometer of you. So just be warned!

I am pretty sure I paid around R140 for this lipstick in Edgars but its showing up as only R84 on Dischems website. The lipgloss was R110.

Would you try this lipstick? If you already have – leave me a link to your review/post down below!
