Rimmel Provacalips Play with Fire

I've been looking for a liquid lipstick that wouldn't make my mouth feel like sandpaper after removing it. I found the Rimmel Provacalips  and wanted a really nice red color, and went with "Play with Fire" because it was a deeper red. To my surprise, this beat some higher end liquid lipsticks like the Clio Lipnicure and the Lime Crime Velventines.

Color: *****
It's a nice deep red depending on how you build much of the color you build it up to. When you build it to full opacity, it's the beautiful deep red color that I love so much. The other end is the lock in lip gloss and it's a transparent color

Texture: ****
The liquid lipstick side is pretty liquidy. I didn't expect that at all. When you pull it out of the tube, it takes out way too much and when you scrape it on the side of the tube to get rid of the excess, you can see the actual product slowly dribbling down. As for the lipgloss side, it's quite the contrary. It's more thick in texture and you can feel the thickness when putting it on your lips.
Note: The liquid lipstick side does have a stickiness to it, so I found that patting it down with a translucent powder, letting it sit for a bit, and then brushing it off works nicely.

Note: The lip gloss side does have a stronger floral smell whereas the liquid lipstick side doesn't.

Effectiveness?: *****
This has lasted through an oily Chinese meal and oily pizza. When I wore the velventine in Salem out for pizza, it came right off as I finished my pizza. The lipgloss side is amazing if you want a more moisturized and shinier lip. Note: The lip gloss doesn't ruin the effect of the liquid lipstick. It does lock the color in!

Price: *****
For the price, it sure packs a punch. I bought it for roughly $9.00.

Overall: *****
I definitely recommend this to those who are looking for a true liquid lipstick that'll last throughout the day. It doesn't budge and without the lipgloss, it's kiss proof!
