      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A lovely product that provides great colour, shame about the strong smell

      These lipsticks are so creamy and moisturizing and some of the colors are beautiful. Nude Delight is one of the most beautiful nudes I've ever seen in a lipstick. It's not too brown or orange but does have some color so it's very wearable.

      They are pigmented and have good lasting power, but I do have one giff with these lipsticks that makes me wonder if I will go out and buy more, the smell.

      I've heard many people say that they enjoy the smell of these because it brings back feelings of nostalgia of them trying on their mothers or grandmas makeup when they were young, however, all these smell like to me is an old dusty nursing home.

      You can smell it strong while you are applying and can continue to smell/taste it for a long while after you put them on. I love the lipstick so much but it honestly makes me a bit nauseous.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not really for me!

      Usually when I'm in the market for a new lipstick there are two ranges that I got to which are Max Factor, or Dainty Doll. In fact in my collection there are only a couple of others from other brands in there which were either impulse buys or bought for me!

      However a few days ago I was in a Lloyds chemist waiting for a prescription and had a mooch at the makeup and spotted a Rimmel stand. With a few minutes to browse I got looking at the products and the prices and this was retailing at £6.49 per lipstick. I was surprised at that price, it had been a while since I had bought anything Rimmel and I always thought of it as a cheap and cheerful brand....not anymore it seems!

      As I went to collect my prescription from the counter I noticed a box of reduced make up and a load of these lipsticks was in it along with a few other offerings. I had the option to buy any four make up options of what was in the box for a fiver or I could buy one individually for £1.50 a go. I ended up buying four items and pleased I was as this shade of lipstick I thought was lovely and very suitable for day time use!

      The Packaging:

      This lipstick comes in lovely oblong purple and metallic finished casing with a crown engraved to the top of the lid and where the lipstick case breaks in half there is a bright silver section covered in see through plastic then on the base of the lipstick it is colour coded with a sticker and on that we are told that it is indeed Moisture Renew Lipstick and the colour is stated (Which in this case is 750 Coffee Shimmer) then on the side of the lipstick there is a peel off white label and on that contact details for Rimmel are given, the weight is stated which is 4g and we are told that from when first used to use it up within 30 months. Its nice looking packaging this is, stays secure and doesn't scratch easily and to use it the case pulls apart and you twist one end of it to reveal the lipstick to use it.

      Using It:

      To use this is simple. You get an angled block of colour that has a slight sweet aroma to it and when you first use it (well the first few times anyway) it is slightly angled in shape for ease of use.

      How you use this is entirely up to you of course. You can apply it straight from the case onto the lips, use a lip brush, use lipliner...whatever. Because this is such a light shade on me I apply it directly to my lips and it applies on smooth and slightly greasy. I do blot this, reapply and blot again because it is such a light colour but I am really pleased that although it is fairly light in colour it is well pigmented at the same time and my option does contain a little glitter which is isn't gritty and doesn't flake off my lips and gently gives the lipstick a light reflecting look opposed to looking full of glitter on my lips!

      When its on it does feel really moisturising, however for me I'm just not all that keen on it due to feeling a bit heavy on my lips but having said that my lips don't slip and slide everywhere and it really isn't sticky.

      I do appreciate the sheen that this has to it and it does make my lips look fuller and once on I find it to stay put about an hour and a half and that's with eating, drinking and smoking and so on. It does transfer a little but again with this being such a light shade that doesn't matter too much and its simple to reapply anyway.

      All In All:

      I wouldn't want to pay anywhere near the full retail price for this one I'm afraid even though it is good quality without a doubt and I do really like the colour of this lipstick that I bought. However It does feel a bit greasy on my lips even though it is kind to them and really I don't get any longer wear from this than from far cheaper brands. I'm happy with it for the bargain price I paid mind you!

      Available in all good chemists etc....Google if interested for a list of stockists.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A short lived lipstick that feels nice to apply but slightly greasy once on

      I have been trying out some new lipsticks over the last few months thanks to regular 3 for 2 and similar offers in Superdrug and Boots. I usually have at least 3 or 4 on the go at once because I love having a selection to choose from to suit my mood and the other make up I am wearing. My lips seem more vulnerable to drying out these days so I decided to make the next lipstick that I bought Rimmel's Moisture Renew. I choose "Berry Rose" which is more berry than rose in colour. It costs £6.29 although I paid less due to a multi buy deal.


      THE LIPSTICK

      The lippie comes in a squared off glossy and metallic purple tube with a silver detailing. I always think that plastic made with a metal look finish looks a bit tacky but I think I am in the minority as all my friends that I have shown the lipstick to love the packaging. For me it looks cheaper than it is and a bit childish but I don't pick lipsticks based on the tube so I don't really mind.

      Rimmel claims that this product contains 3 "super moisturisers", namely polypeptides, hyaluronic acid and natural collagen which are supposed to make your lips feel up to 70% more hydrated and 60% smoother. It also contains vitamins A, C and E, and an SPF of 20. A total of 17 shades are currently available and I impressed by the colours offered as they seem to tick most trend boxes from nude to vibrant red. Some colours have "shimmer" in their names so I presume they have a glittery type finish but I have not tried those.


      FEELING MOIST?

      The lipstick feels more like a balm as you apply it, because it is creamy and smooth and just glides beautifully across the lips. It reminded me strongly of the MUA lipstick which is of course much cheaper at £1, so I was slightly disappointed that the Rimmel one didn't feel more wondrous in some way! But it is nice to use in it's own right and perhaps a little softer in feel than the MUA one. When I put my lips together afterwards, I am aware of a slightly greasy feel, and a minor stickiness too. It is not at all at the level of a typical lip gloss but I a bit more aware of wearing this than a regular lipstick. It isn't enough to put me off but I could see some people not finding the texture as pleasant as it could be.

      As to feeling moisturising, well my lips do feel much less drier than normal come the end of the day. They do not feel like they have been "super moisturised", more just that the lipstick hasn't dried them out further. This suits me fine but I wonder whether it would be enough for someone with seriously dry lips. I sometimes use a balm as well, and the two are fine together as regards how they look. However, I prefer the lighter feel of the lipstick alone as I have mentioned that it has a very slight greasy feel in it's own right.


      LOOKING GOOD?

      The colour is excellent - an intense pigmented look that I didn't need to build up although it will layer up if you want it to. It has a pleasant good quality gloss finish too. It doesn't look quite as shiny as a standard lip gloss but it isn't far off. I think it would appeal to those who like to usually add a clear gloss over the top of their lippie because you wouldn't need to do that with this one. The downside is it is not food and drink proof and I always need to re-apply by lunchtime even if I haven't snacked along the way. I have definitely used longer lasting lipsticks but Rimmel don't claim this is a long stay one to be fair. I haven't had any trouble with it bleeding or smudging in the meantime and it comes away easily when you do ant it to at the end of the day.

      The lipstick does go on evenly but I don't think the final result makes my lips look smoother in itself. When I first used this my lips were quite dry and this lipstick couldn't make them look smooth until I had exfoliated them and gave them a bit more TLC. After that, the fact the lipstick didn't obviously contribute to my lips feeling dry, probably helped the lipstick look better once on.


      WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS LIPSTICK?

      This gives me a bit of a dilemma because whist there is nothing really wrong with this lipstick, it doesn't feel any more moisturising or soft than the very much cheaper MUA standard £1 lipstick for me. The Rimmel one is more glossy in look so if that is what you are after, then that is a good buy. Otherwise, I would go for the cheaper option as the Rimmel one doesn't last any longer or have a stronger colour. The MUA one is also non greasy in my opinion.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A gorgeous neutral lipstick from a brand I very rarely look at!

        My usual colour lipstick is red, but I'm a great believer in the old adage of fussy eyes or lips (never both) so sometimes if I make an extra effort with my eye make-up I'll forgo the bright lip colour and opt for a more neutral shade. I'm using a Moisture Renew lipstick at the moment from Rimmel London, the shade name is Nude Delight and (as the name would suggest) it's a pale skin colour. I'd probably call it beige if I was forced to pin an actual colour to it, on my lips it gives me a tanned look that I can accentuate with a slick of clear gloss for a healthy and attractive mouth which compliments bold eyes perfectly. It's a very matte shade which doesn't suit everyone; I know matte lips don't suit me personally which is why I use the gloss afterwards, however my sister is currently using the same lipstick for work without applying a glossy top coat and has found that the matte finish suits her darker skin beautifully - she has a more olive complexion than me and looking at the contrast between her facial skin and her lips I can see how well they compliment one another, far better than Nude Delight looks on my more pink toned skin.

        The lipstick isn't at all creamy to apply, it drags the skin on my lips slightly so I always ensure I use a lip liner prior to application as this ensures the lipstick doesn't drag so much that I lose the natural shape of my lips. Using a lip liner (any 'nude' will do really) also prevents the colour bleeding into the fine lines (gah!) around my lips - it's obviously important to use a clear or nude lip liner as the slightest hint of colour will stand out strongly against the pale lipstick and you really don't want to be going for the 80s hooker look with a lip line darker than your actual lips!

        My lips feel slightly plumper after applying Moisture Renew which makes obvious to me the fact that the hydrating properties work pretty well; I wouldn't say my lips feel particularly moisturised at this point but I can certainly tell that they have a smoother feel - I'm a very regular user of lip balm so my lips are kept in good condition anyway, the fact that this super Rimmel lipstick makes them feel even healthier is amazing really and something that would definitely pull me towards this specific lipstick over other Nude shades I've tried in the past.

        The colour (if you class 'nude' as a colour!) lasts suprisingly well, although for me it's always set under a layer of lip gloss which helps keep the lipstick in place. I've been told people can't always tell for sure whether I'm wearing lipstick or not when I wear Nude Delight but I know it lingers nicely on my lips as when I use a make-up remover wipe in the evening quite a lot of the beige colour comes off on the wipe, this is about the only time I can actually SEE the colour of this lipstick and it's an obvious beige tone when seen against the white wipe.

        The packaging isn't the most exciting, a purple squared off tube with mirrored detail - it's unmistakably Rimmel; trendy but verging on garish, I actually don't think it suits the product at all as such a decidedly understated shade should have a more stylish tube than *this*! The lipstick twists up smoothly and keeps its shape through plenty of applications without wearing away at one side or becoming completely blunt. I've been using mine for a few weeks now (although not every day) and it barely looks touched, this would probably be due to the fact that you only need to apply one coat for a natural looking colour with the gloss I always add seeming to bring it out more as if I've applied more lipstick than I really have.

        I absolutely recommend this Moisture Renew lipstick in Nude Delight and intend to hunt out more shades from the range very soon. This one is perfect when you're wearing dramatic or bright eye make-up, or even as an option on those days when you're after a more natural look - I can see me wearing it more often now the summer is here as the glossed-up beige looks fabulous in the sun and with just a touch of mascara and cheek stain I can create a rosy and healthy appearance which doesn't make it look like I've tried at all!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Brilliant !

          I got this in shade Rose Passion after seeing it on one of my favourite blogs and deciding I had to have it ! I bought this a couple of days ago in Boots as they had a buy one get one half price offer on cosmetics and I really didn't want to pay the full £6.29 for a lipstick, as they're usually not worth it.

          Rose Passion is a gorgeous deep red with a slight pinkish tone to it, meaning it's not quite as bold or harsh as some red lipsticks. I love the formula of this and as the name suggests it's really moisturising, which means it goes on a bit sheer but is easily layered to give good even coverage. It applies easily without dragging and doesn't bleed either. Although mositursing it's not heavy and you barely feel like you're wearing lipstick at all ! It gives a slightly glossy finish which I really like. It also contains SPF 20 which is always a plus !

          The packaging is pretty typical from Rimmel but it's a really pretty shade of purple which is useful as it stands out from my other lipsticks with black packaging. The lid is quite stiff but that means it won't fall off when it gets thrown around my handbag !

          This costs £6.29 which is a bit more than I'm usually prepared to pay for a lipstick so I'd probably only repurchase this when it's on offer again.

          Overall I absolutely love this lipstick and highly recommend it !

            a great drug store lipstick

            RIMMEL MOISTURE RENEW LIPSTICK

            Rimmel is one of my favourite high street brands, they are good-quality affordable products and I've not really come across any bad products from them. I love how there always bringing out new ranges and the shades are usually very on-trend to.

            Rimmel is widely available in Boots, Superdrug, Supermarkets and even some of the smaller, local pharmacies. It's also available online.

            THE CLAIMS:

            * Maximised, radiant colour.

            * Innovative formula with 3 super moisturisers. Lips feel up to 70% more hydrated and up to 60% smoother.

            * SPF 20, Vitamins A, C and E for protected lips.

            MY EXPERIENCE:

            Theres no real reason why I went out and bought this to be honest, I was just browsing and it caught my eye so I tried it. I love these lipsticks! I first tried 'Vintage Pink' and have since bought 'Nude Delight'. 'Vintage Pink' went on a bit darker than I'd expected but is still a pretty, wearable shade and 'Nude Delight' is one of my favourite nude lipsticks, it's a more peachy toned nude rather than pinky and isn't too pale, if I go for anything too pale on my lips I find it washes me out.

            The lipstick stayed on very well which was impressive! It was also very hydrating which surprised me, simply because in the past I've found the colours that stay on are normally very drying. This was very smooth on the lips and smelt lovely! The colours are radiant with a creamy finish.

            PACKAGING:

            I love the packaging! The purple tube is very eye-catching and the lid clicks on nicely and doesn't come off.

            SHADES AVAILABLE:

            There are 17 shades available in the range. They range from the more vibrant reds and fuchsia's to more natural nudes. I feel there is something for everyone!

            VALUE FOR MONEY:

            The lipsticks retail at £6.29 and they are worth every penny! They are long-wearing and such high quality for a great price! I already have my eye on 'Diva Red' and 'Funtime Fuchsia'

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            a great lipstick

            I love trying out new colours of lipstick and decided to try the Rimmel Moisture Renew collection in a bid to stop my lips from chapping in the cold weather. I picked this lipstick up in a few colours because there were a few nice shades that I liked the look off and also they were on a 3 for 2 deal.

            Application and Results
            I really like how this lipstick looks on my lips, the colour pigmentation is really vibrant on my lips and it looks really good on. I have found that you do not have to apply a lot of this lipstick to get good results and it gives my lips a really nice shine.

            I have found that this lipstick has really good staying power, it usually lasts for around 5-6 hours when applied and then it needs freshened up a little. If I am going out for a night out and am eating or drinking, I have found that this lipstick stays on quite well which is great as I hate having to re apply makeup when I am out and about.

            Since starting to use this lipstick I have found that my lips do feel a lot more moisturised, they do not dry up or chap as quickly when I am using this and they look much healthier.

            Colours Available
            There is a good range of pinks, reds, purples and nudes in this range of lipstick, I think that it would be hard for anyone to dislike the whole range and everyone should find a shade to suit their tastes and skintone.

            Price and Availability
            You can buy this lipstick in Boots for £6.29, I think that this is an ok price for lipstick of this quality. However sometimes there is a 3 for 2 deal on make up in Boots so it is good to keep an eye out for it.

            Overall
            I think that this is quite a good lipstick, I like the colours available and it lasts for ages when applied. I have found that my lips are in much better condition since I started using this and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has problems with dry lips in the winter months. Overall I would give this lipstick 5 out of 5 stars.

            I would recommend this

            I am not a great user of lipstick but I wanted to try the red lips trend so I bought this product in a bright red shade. It gives a very intense colour and as suggested in the name, is really mositurising. It goes on really easily and feels lovely and soft on the lips. I used a lip liner to stop it bleeding and with that, it stayed put most of the night but it was slightly smudged by the time I got home. I think the packaging on this lipstick is really nice and was probaly the reason it caught my eye in the first place. It has a lovely purple mirrored finish and looks alot more expensive than the price of around £4! It comes in a wide range of shades and since using the red lipstick I have bought a coral shade (although I am yet to wear it out) and I am equally as impressed by the colour intensity and how it feels my lips feeling soft. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to try lipstick colours without spending a lot of money.
