Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick

I’ve been on a Rimmel kick lately and I’m enjoying learning about a brand that I had never really tried before. Earlier in the summer, I picked up three of the Moisture Renew Lipsticks on a whim and I’m glad I did! For $6.99, I found that these lovely lipsticks go on smoothly and impart a rich, moisturizing finish to my lips. My colors are “To Nude or Not to Nude,” “Piccadilly Pink,” and “As You Want Victoria.” Read below for more!

To Nude or Not To Nude is a slightly frosted neutral, peachy pink that is a great looking nude for light skin tones. The shimmer is subtle so it doesn’t look ridiculous on aging lips. I find that a slight sheen can really light up the face and this lipstick does the trick! It’s a great “professional” color for work but will also look great as part of a “no makeup” makeup look. I found the formula nicely moisturizing but not so wet that it slides off the lips. It lasted fairly long (two hours is a long time for me) and it didn’t “tug” on my lips the way some lipsticks do. Very nice!

Piccadilly Pink is a really pretty, cool toned medium pink and one of my favorite shades of lipstick. This is a real “go to” color for me and I have found myself reaching for it often. Like To Nude or Not to Nude, this shade has a slight shimmer that is just lovely! Since I have lots of lipsticks in similar shades, I almost didn’t buy it but I’m glad I did. One can never have too many of her favorite pink lipstick and at $6.99. I’ll be coming back to this one as long as Rimmel keeps this shade in it’s line up!

As You Want Victoria is a gorgeous, bright, pinky red with the same slight shimmer that the other two shades also have. I absolutely love how this color brings attention right to the face! If you’re looking for a dramatic look (if you’re light skinned) this is the one for you! For darker complexions, the impact is still there but will be more of a rosy hue. I pair this one with a more subtle eye and cheeks for an absolutely stunning look.
