Last year, I got a subscription to the Cosmopolitan magazine and it came with a surprise beauty box with a worth of at least €100. The last time I took a gamble with my magazine subscription gift was, when I got the Glamour Surprise Box back in 2013. I was not that disappointed with the gifts, but it would have been great if I could get at least one beauty item, such as a nail polish or a lipstick. This time, it is called a surprise beauty box, so I was sure that I would get something beauty related.

Now that there is an Amazing Oriental supermarket in the city center of Rotterdam, I have been there many times to find new products to try out. One of them is this box of I Sea Tempura Shrimp.

The new Rimmel Provocalips promises to be kiss proof, transfer proof, and trouble proof. It lasts up to 16 hours, giving you a weightless and non-drying color on the lips. That sounds very promising, doesn't it?
I have heard of something like this before with Korean brands, such as the Missha M ever lasting lacquer rouge & lip top coat and the Clio Lipnicure (which I still have to review). I dislike wearing lipstick as it gets everywhere and you need to do touch-ups every now and then, so a kiss-proof lip product is like godsent to me. The only reason why I didn't buy them in all colors, is that I have heard from people that they can be very drying. For someone like me that has dry lips and is a heavy user of lip balm that doesn't sound very good. So, I was very curious to see if the non-drying claim of the Rimmel Provocalips holds. There are 6 colors to choose from and I tried out the Rimmel Provocalips in the shade 550 - Play With Fire.
