Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks

What are Sunday’s all about if it’s not applying, photographing and removing and repeating with twelve different lipsticks… today’s post is a closer look at the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks – with the whole hog, product, swatch and lip shots…don’t say I never treat you to anything!

A little bit of back story to these lipsticks – Moisture Renew has been a part of the Rimmel family for a few years, but these babies are newly re-packaged and reformulated to add extra colour and moisture pop. With the re-do of the range coming hot on the heels of the amazing Kate Moss lipstick and Apocalips ranges, which are arguably the best high street lipstick ranges out there. You could be pretty confident that the new Moisture Renew shades were going to kick some make-up butt.

These shades that I’ve been playing with are grouped into three sort of colour groups – the pinks, the deeps and the reds & nudes…

My top picks from the shades are 705 – Lets Get Naked, a lovely pinky nude that’s natural and flattering at the same time. Then there’s 660 – In Love With Ginger, a stunning orange toned red shade that’s creamy and pigmented. On the dark shades spectrum there’s 380 – Dark Night Waterl-oops! It’s a super-dark and moody shade for a real statement lip. Last but by no means least there’s 130 – Oxford Street Fucshia – a bright creamy pink that reminds me of a slightly brighter pinker version of MAC Lovelorn.

Personally my least favourites of the bunch are those with a pearly finish to them – they’re nice colours but I find a creamy finish to be much more flattering. So the ones that I don’t love as much from the Moisture Renew Collection are 260- Amethyst Shimmer, 170 – Ringa Ringa Roses and 210 – Fancy. Gorgeous colours but I don’t love the pearly finish.

Twelve shades showcased here…which is your pick of the bunch?!
