Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro - Steel Grey and Pink Zinfandel

So we're down to the last couple of Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro colors I have for review right now.  There are several other Rimmel variations, such as Rimmel 60 Seconds, coming up as well.  But for now, the last two in the Lasting Finish Pro line are my latest, Pink Zinfandel, and my favorite go-to polish, Steel Grey. No, you're not crazy, I've reviewed this one before, but it's my favorite, so I'm throwing it in there again.

Steel Grey is one of those mushroom-y, taupy colors I always fall for and because it's in this line, which happens to be one of my favorites, and is applied with one of the best application brushes out there, it qualifies as my "if you could only have ONE" polish.  It reads as a neutral, but has plenty of color saturation to contrast nicely with my pasty white skin.

Steel Grey is actually a fairly close Chanel Particuliere dupe, but, unlike Particuliere, Steel Grey has a slight hint of a purple undertone that makes me favor it slightly.  It wears like iron on my nails and is the polish I wear when traveling.  If I am going to be gone for more than a week, I'll take a clear-based glitter coat to wear over it the second week if/when it starts showing wear.

Lastly, we have Rimmel's Pink Zinfandel.  This is what I would call a "frost." (Remember the 80s?)  It's an easy-to-apply formula, but it does have the tell-tale brush strokes reminiscent of a frost.

It's a nice mauvy-pink frost.  I wasn't thrilled with the brush strokes and pastels aren't really my best colors, so I layered a coat of Wet n Wild Hannah Pinktana over it - a sheer, pink glitter/shimmer coat.  Hides the brush strokes fairly well and gives it a little more depth (and a little more contrast against my skin.)

This concluded the Rimmel reviews for a few days.  I think I kind of ODd on them for now!  Have a great day!
