Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick Review – Vintage Pink
I hope everyone’s having a great day! Can’t believe it’s Tuesday again already, it’s come around so quickly! It means it’s another day closer to the weekend =)
Anyway following on from my Superdrug Sunday Haul, I thought I would let you take a closer look at one of the items I bought, so here is my Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick Review in Vintage Pink.
Now I do already have a lipstick from Rimmel’s Moisture Renew collection (Nude Delight 700) and since I was very impressed, it made sense to me to want another lipstick from the same line! I had been after a berry coloured lipstick for a while now. So while I was in Superdrug I swatched all the tester colours on the back of my hand and the one that got my attention was Vintage Pink. In the above photo with the flash on, the lipstick looks a lot more loud than it actually is in reality. On the lips it gives a soft, blushing pout with just the right amount of colour.
In the tube it looks more of a burgundy colour, but once swatched it’s more like a berry colour which is exactly what I was after! Sometimes I get really put off by some shades of lipsticks in their tubes, because it’s not a colour you can picture yourself wearing. When I first saw this I was apprehensive because this is a slightly darker colour lipstick to one I would normally choose. Lucky I did do a quick swipe on the back of my hand otherwise I could’ve missed out! I realise now that until you’ve actually got it on, the shade can look totally different to what you’re expecting! From now I’m going to give all the colours a fair chance before making up my mind!
Rimmel’s Moisture Renew lipstick does exactly what it says on the tin, it “moisturises” and gives lips a gorgeous rosy sheen. This lipstick compared to my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick is not nearly as sheer so you can definitely see the difference when you are wearing it.
The only dislike that I do have with the Moisture Renew is that is wears off fairly quickly, especially if you’re eating or drinking so you do have to touch up a few times. BUT even so, it doesn’t leave your lips peeling which I have experienced with some other lip products. It still maintains the moisture in the lips which is ideal, especially with the cold winter days ahead.
I do highly recommend this lipstick, despite the length of wear you get out of it. The price is very reasonable at £6.29 per lipstick so you can afford to touch up a few times throughout the day. I also love the glossy purple packaging with Rimmel’s trademark crown embossed on the top of the lid. It’s great to have in your hand bag and there is a great selection of shades avaiable. You should take advantage of Rimmel’s 3 for 2 offer at Superdrug now! =)
Stay tuned for my next review!
