Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick Review and Swatches


Alongside my favourite lipsticks from Chanel, Tom Ford and YSL are some much more affordable, but equally well-loved, bullets from everyone's favourite highstreet beauty brand, Rimmel (such as these lovelies here and here).


So tales of the new and improved Moisture Renew range got me hot under the collar, and I've been putting a selection of these lipsticks through their paces over recent weeks. 


If you like the moisture hit you get from a balm-like lippie, but want your colour to pack more of a punch, you should definitely investigate the range.

The formula and finish are similar to Lancome's Rouge In Love line: thinner in consistency than your average lipstick, they feel lightweight and have plenty of slip, while delivering an impressive amount of glossy pigment in just one swipe. 


The vitamin-rich formula keeps lips feeling comfortable and hydrated, and it lasts well, too - I get about three hours wear-time which is pretty great for such a moisturising product.  

Perfect for experimenting with colour without breaking the bank, the 13-strong range has the lot: brights, bolds, nudes, seasonal plums and a cheery selection of reds. I'm showing you my three favourites here but there are plenty more I'd happily pay lipservice to, including Diva Red and the hot pink, As You Want Victoria. 

The Moisture Renew range is out now, priced at €7.99 a bullet - will you be checking them out?

All three of these are so nice on your Emma (of course I favour the bright red shade!) I really love Rimmel lipsticks, they are such great value for money. One of my all time favourite lipsticks is Rimmel Heartbreaker. Gotta check these out!

I have vintage pink in the old formula and I love it! I've been looking for Notting Hill Nude everywhere since Lily Pebbles raved about it but no luck yet!

Felicity said...

Vintage Pink is my HG pink - I have been looking forever for that colour and could not find it anywhere - most companies only producing yellow based pinks, or pinks that oxidise on me in five minutes flat. Yet again, Emma to my rescue!

Nurse Fancy Pants said...

You are no good for my bank account Emma! Notting Hill nude and In love with ginger have been firmly added to the list! They all look amazing on you! x
