Rimmel London's "Burgundy Flirt 390"
Yet another awesome shade by Rimmel London.......
As reds go this is right at the top of my list after "Perfect Red" by ASK Cosmetics. The name describes this shade so well having a strong burgundy undertone to it, but yet it still passes as a gorgeous "Sweep me off my feet" red.
The application was fantastic. The wearability factor was great. Shown here are 2 coats, which could easily be intensified with a third coat.
This is one of the bottles I puchased on sale for $2.00 at Shopper's Drugmart. If you live in Canada and have the chance, check out the deals they have on offer.
Don't forget to apply a good basecoat especially with very pigmented lacquers like the one shown above. The basecoat really does help to prevent yellowing of the nails.
In order to prolong the wear of your manicure re-apply topcoat every 2 days to add shine and durability.
These are the four red shades I own and love: (from right to left) ASK Cosmetics Perfect Red, Rimmel London's Burgundy Flirt, Sally Hansen's Unbreakable Heart and OPI's From A to Zurich.
Do you have a favourite shade of red? What is it?
Have a great day from snowy Canada! Til next time, Lisa M.
