Rimmel Airy Fairy Vs Stage Pastel Posy

May15

Hey ladies Hazelnutt House!

I hope it's not just me who sometimes go through my makeup like how toy collectors go through their toy collection and cleaning them with care.  I believe i'm not alone... since we all have a common love for our cosmetic products (",)  So, the day before, i was doing just that... swatching... admiring... and wiping out fall-outs from my makeup products & rearranging them. I noticed that Airy Fairy & Pastel Posy that i have in my collection share a marked resemblance.


Airy Fairy is quite a popular pinky nude shade with a hint of mauve but it's not easily available in Singapore. Pastel Posy which is not exactly popular is also a pinky nude & is available in Singapore.

I've been using Airy Fairy, which is slightly creamy for some time and i do like the shade... it has a slight golden sheen to it... hard to describe... but those who've seen Nars' Orgasm blush will notice that the blush has a golden sheen to it.  Airy Fairy has that sort of slight golden sheen as well but it was impossible to capture it on my camera.  I do have some complains though.  Firstly, although the smell of Airy Fairy doesn't put me off... i don't exactly fancy it.  It's neither vanilla-ish (like MAC) nor is it fruity.  Secondly, the outline of my lips especially at the cupid's bow tend to itch after wearing Airy Fairy for awhile.  I don't think it's expired coz i just got it a couple of months back.  Maybe i'm just allergic to this particular formula but i've no problem with other Rimmel lipsticks.  Airy Fairy comes in a shiny, plasticky tube which doesn't feel too sturdy.

As for Pastel Posy, it's a matte shade which applies easily & doesn't dry my lips out... it has a hint of vanilla scent, which is similar to MAC's lipsticks.  Pastel Posy comes in a sturdy, matte tube.

Check out the swatches that i've prepared:


They do look pretty similar except that Airy Fairy has a slight tinge of mauve & golden sheen compared to the very nude pink of Pastel Posy.  In case you're looking high and low, trying to get your hands on Airy Fairy, you may wanna try Stage's Pastel Posy which is available in Singapore.  It's only $8 from now till 31 May 2010.

I bought Airy Fairy when I was in KL in march coz I read about the raves, I really liked it but I felt that funny sensation on my lips too. I gave it to my mum in the end. Thanks for this post!

Thanks for the swatches! I liked Airy Fairy after seeing on some darker skintones but came to realize it seemed a bit mauve on our skintones, medium nc30-ish skintones. Pastel Posy looks really pretty though (:

Pastel Posy's a cool shade while Airy Fairy's a tad warmer. Both looks great on you :)

hi Kim! Wooo... looks like i'm not the only one who gets the itch on my lips with Airy Fairy.

hi Sara, yeah... pastel posy's a pretty nude pink... i'm tired of skintone nudes... time for a change to pink nudes (",)

Hi teaplayground :p it's a nice shade, but definitely not my 'to die for' colour... if it weren't for the itch i get on my lips, it'll receive a higher rating from me (",)

Hey Syidah, not exactly advertising for pastel posy... more like advertising for u to go to stage for some $8 goodies (",)

Yup Verlyn.. the itch was pretty nasty... i've to use medicated oil on it sometimes!
