      Find them online cheaper then its a great lipstick

      First thing that drew me to this lipstick is the amazing purple casing. Yes, if something is purple I will automatically be drawn to it and then decide what it is, if I like it. I saw these in Boots, and purple or not, I was not going to pay £6.29 for them. Call me tight but way too much for my liking. I did however find them online for £2.59 much better, my purse sighed a big sigh of relief on that one. The case is square rather than round which does stop them from rolling about the dressing table which is always a good point. I had looked at the colours and tested the lipstick out in the shop so knew what shades I was interested in, although I have to admit I found more shades on the internet than I did in store. I will also say that the colours are very samey, to many shades that look the same kind of colour. I ended up buying four colours Slone Square is a deep plum, Heather Shimmer is a shimmery light brown, Amethyst Shimmer is a light plum with shimmer and Coral Queen is a light pink. Although I am more than happy with all of the lipsticks I bought, the amethyst shimmer has been a bit of a disappointment for me, the colour is a bit bland and it doesn't really have that much of a shimmer to it. The other three are great for different reasons, Sloan Square is a very rich dark colour and not only lasts well but has a shine all of its own that doesn't need gloss to achieve, the colour doesn't fade and doesn't bleed, it survives eating and drinking well too. The Heather Shimmer has a very pretty shimmer to it, it is a light colour which is nice and the slight brown tinge is also light but noticeable. This also lasts as well as the other colours. Coral Queen I really bought for my daughter but I have used it a few times, it is a very pretty light pearlescent almost, pink shade which does suit my daughter more than I. Although I wouldn't pay £6.25 for this lipstick it does moisturise your lips very well and after use, it does give you a very soft feeling to your lips. It is like having Vaseline on under your lipstick. Apart from the price there isn't really any bad points about these lipsticks, I don't like all the colours but then I wont buy the ones I don't like, so thats not really a bad point.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A really good, moisturising lipstick.

      When it comes to lipstick I can be especially picky. I find it difficult to find shades to suit my skin tone, and lipsticks never seem to be moisturising enough to wear on my lips, as they tend to dry out easily. Because of this, I normally go for lipgloss instead. However, after dabbling with a few of Rimmel's lipsticks, I have found a new found favourite in their 'Moisture Renew' range, and I am keen to share this with you all. I remembered seeing this advertised in magazines and on television a while back and I was interested in it, but I never got round to picking it up. When I was in Boots picking up some make up, I noticed that Rimmel was on a 3 for 2 offer, so I picked up two of these and my usual mascara. I would recommend purchasing these lipsticks from drugstores such as Boots and Superdrug, and I have also spotted them in some supermarkets and pharmacies. The retail price for this lipstick is £6.29, which I think is quite reasonable, although perhaps a little steep in comparison to other Rimmel lipsticks. It is worth taking advantage of 3 for 2 offers like I did in Boots, as this will save you a considerable amount. The thing that attracted me to this lipstick in the first place was the fact it was meant to moisturise lips, and I could do with this as I find it hard to get a lipstick that does not dry my lips out. However, when I saw this in store, the gorgeous packaging stood out to me more than anything. Rather than being in a cheap, or colourless packaging like many lipsticks, this is in a bright purple shade (see image). It is really striking, and I think it looks great. It is a squared style shape, but this makes it more comfortable for application, and I feel the colour of the packaging really helps if you are like me and lose your lipsticks at the bottom of your bag frequently! When I decided to try these out, I was really excited by the variety of shades. There was not many shades in terms of 'out there' or daring colours, however they are all very wearable and natural, which is what I like. There were around twenty or so shades on offer which is a good amount, many of these focussing on nude and natural colours. There was a few pinks, plums, browns and reds - so really something for everyone. I personally like quite natural looking lipstick shades, so I settled for the shades 'Nude Delight' and 'Heather Shimmer'. Nude Delight is my personal favourite, and it is a very wearable light brown shade. Heather Shimmer is also beautiful, and is a darker brown, but really easy to pull off. I really like the shades. Applying this lipstick is so easy, I did not find that I even needed a mirror. The consistency of it is so creamy, and this just makes applying it so lovely. It transfers straight on to the lips with ease, and does not smudge at all. The first thing I noticed when applying this was just how moisturising the lipstick actually was. It felt more like a cross between a lipstick and a gloss as it was just so creamy. This meant it was perfect for my lips, especially as they get dry easily. The finish on this is nice, as it is not too matte. It leaves a nice shine over the lips which I think looks great. I was really impressed with how beautiful these lipsticks look on. And it takes a lot for me to rave about a lipstick, so this must be good! It does last a good few hours before coming off, however I like to top up my lipstick during the day just so it is fresh. I have not experienced any smudging with it, and it tends to stay in place as long as you don't knock your lips too much. I found that I could still eat and drink fine wearing this, which I think is great for a drugstore lipstick. It really is great! Overall, this is a lipstick which I would thoroughly recommend everyone to go and have a look at. The shades are beautiful, and the consistency of the lipstick means it is so creamy and moisturising for your lips. If it can work on my dry lips, it can work on yours! Only knocked one star off and this is because I think it is a little expensive next to some of Rimmel's other lipsticks. Thanks for reading and hope it helps.

      Creamy and colourful lipstick!

      I got this lipstick last year, so I don't think that it is a new product but oh well. This is the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 700 Nude Delight. Packaging: The packaging I have to admit is slightly tacky with the bright purple tube. It is bright and catches the eye but on close inspection it doesn't do much. The tube is the similar size of a normal lipstick and on the top it is slightly curved and has the Rimmel logo on it. If you dislike the packaging THAT much then I suggest to buy the Kate Moss ones with the black packaging in 03 which is a VERY similar colour to Nude Delight (although it is lasting finish not moisture renew). Product: This particular colour is a nude with a bit of a mix of peach and slightly brownish undertones to it. I think that is a good match for lighter to medium skin tones, on deeper skin tones I think that this would be a bit TOO light and it would just look a bit off, so I guess you should try a deeper nude with more brown undertones. This lipstick is incredibly creamy and lasts a very long time (since I have had it since last year but it is nearly finishing) With this lipstick as it is so creamy, I would say to apply it onto your lips and then pat the colour in with your finger as it will sink into the lines on your lips (or it does with mine). Also, make sure to get rid of any excess skin on your lips and exfoliate as whenever you go for a nude/ish lip you want a nice base for the colour to sit on. It does have a bit of a gloss but you could always maybe add a bit of transparent setting powder onto you lips (put a tissue on first then apply the powder-with a fluffy brush) to matte the colour out a bit. Availability: I bought this at Boots for around £7 but you can buy it in Superdrug, Tescos and all that. But again, wait for sales because £7 for a lipstick is a bit 'meh' to be honest. They also have a shade range of 17 different colours, pretty impressive. Verdict: Buy it! I love this lipstick; granted I do not wear it a lot but I really do like this lipstick as it is moisturising and the colour is beautiful. Hope you liked it! x As written on Ciao.

      A lovely lipstick from Rimmel, four stars due to Summer Angel not readily avaliable now.

      ***Why I want the product?*** Like most women I love lipsticks and lip glosses and I like certain brands and colours. Rimmel in all honestly has never been on my radar before. I brought a Rimmel lipstick before called Nude Delight, which for me was matte and very drying on my all ready dry lips. So for me to purchase another Rimmel lipstick they had the chance to prove me wrong. ***About the product*** While browsing a makeup site awhile ago I came across Moisture Renew Lipstick called Summer Angel. The name Moisture Renew straight away caught my eye as to me it screams moisturising, which is what I always need. The colour Summer Angel is described as a nude, shimmering shade that is perfect for summer. Moisture Renew is packed with ingredients such as polypeptides, hyaluronic acid and natural collagen that deeply hydrate lips and improves their condition instantly and over time. At boots.com there are currently 15 shades to choose from that range from a vibrant red called Diva Red to a lighter shade called Latino. There is a shade for everyone. ***Packaging*** Normally Moisture Renew lipsticks come in a beautiful purple tube that is shiny and almost mirror like, but Because I brought a summer shade 'Summer Angel' the packaging is the same apart from the tube is in a lovely bronze that oozes summer. Just under the lid there is a clear part that the lid clicks into and the barrel is gold. The top of the lid sees a crown. Personally I think the packaging looks more expensive than it is. ***What is the product like on the lips?*** On the first application of this lipstick I am happy to find it glides on beautifully and is very soft so no dragging. It does feel moisturising on applications and hides my dry lips well without drawing more attention to them. Summer Angel is a perfect colour on the lips due to the pink, gold shimmer undertones that make my lips look plumper and very shiny. With regular applications throughout the day and over days I am pleased not to have horrible drier lips that can happen with some lipsticks; instead my lips feel more conditioned. However, this did not and would not sort my dry lips alone so a good lip treatment is needed at the end of the day. ***How long does it last?*** As the lipstick is very soft and is moisturising it is not a lipstick with the greatest of staying power. However, I have noticed if you apply a layer, blot and re-do the same process a few times you will get more longer wear but drinking and eating you will still notice transfer but not as much as one layer. ***Price and availability*** You can purchase Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks from boots.com for £6.29 ***What I think about it/do I like it?*** After the disaster with Nude Delight from Moisture Renew I am happy I chose this lipstick and it has been my to go lip colour for the summer.

        Rimmel moisture renew lipstick

        I recently picked up a Rimmel lipstick with some spare Boots Advantage points that I had. Rimmel is not the first brand I usually go to but the price of this lipstick was quite good and I wanted something nice with a good choice of colours which is what I got. I decided to choose a lipstick from their Moisture renew range. I had seen advertising for these lipsticks before and when I then saw them after I had been browsing in Boots I decided to purchase one of these as they looked good. According to Rimmel, " Moisture Renew Lipstick is formulated with three superpower moisturisers - polypeptides, hyaluronic acid and natural collagen that deeply hydrate lips and improves their condition instantly and over time." The lipsticks contain a caring colour complex of vitamin A, C & E, anti-oxidants and SPF 20 protects lips from everyday damage. The lipsticks comes in a regular looking lipstick tube with a lid that slips on and off. I like that this is a regular lipstick as I have so many that are in fancy sticks or packaging that to just have a normal, old fashioned lipstick is great. The lipsticks glides onto my lips really nicely and it does have quite a smooth feel to it which I think is nice. Apparently this lipstick will give you 70% more hydrated lips and I think that is great for this time of year as I already have quite dry lips due to the cold weather. After using this lipstick I don't really have dry lips which is nice so I can tell it definitely does not dry out my lips and does seem to add some moisture. The colour of my lipstick is really nice. There were a whole host of colours to choose from, from light pinks to deep reds. I decided to go for electric plum. This colour is not really purple, I would call it more of a dark red, a bit like the colour of a plum to be honest and gives my lips a really nice dark look which I like. I have found that the colour lasts really well and I only need to reapply if I want that fresh, just put on lipstick look. At £6.29 per lipstick I think they are a good bargain and a nice one to add to your beauty routine.

        good freebie

        I won this product in an online competition from Rimmel, I chose the shade soft coral as the rest were too harsh for my skin tone. The lipstick comes in a bright metallic purple case which stands at 7.5 cms high, there is a silver ring around the middle, on top of the lid is the Rimmel crown, on the bottom is a sticker which says moisture renew lipstick/rossetto/rouge a levres then the number 600 and the shade which is soft coral. As with most lipsticks it has screw up bottom. The lipstick has a touch of glitter that is very subtle so doesn't make you look childish, it feels very lightweight on your lips and not at all heavy like some other lipsticks I have tried. The colour stays on for a long time so I do not have to be reapplying all the time. The lipstick is nice on its own but is light enough for you to add gloss over the top if you desire. Having recieved this for free I would happily pay £3 - £5 for this product it is currently £6.19 in Boots but they often have 3 for 2 deals.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great buy - excellent for winter use, nice treat to stop sore lips.

        For those of us that suffer through the UK's winter, dry and chapped lips are a constant problem. I don't know about you, but I at least would be infinitely happier if I didn't have to worry about the pain and the embarrassment that the cold air brings me. I really hate slicking on a colour in the morning only to get to work and find that it's afforded me no protection from the weather at all; the colour is cracking on my lips even as I wear it and those awful little bits of dry skin are beginning to ruin my lips. For many years now my method of fighting against chapped lips has been to smother them in Vaseline when I first wake up, and again before I put on my lip colour. There's no doubt that this works; my lips are usually in great condition and I can grin spontaneously without worry of my face cracking off. However, the downside of using Vaseline is that its oily texture always seems to fight against whatever lip colour I choose, and before I even get to work the colour has faded and needs to be reapplied. This happens with all colours, no matter how long they're designed to be fade-proof! I tried Rimmel's Moisture Renew lipstick in an attempt to get around this problem, and I've been really pleased with the results. I use shade 1892 'Vintage Pink,' and love it so much that I have two - I went to a wedding recently and realised I had left my favourite lipstick at home 100 miles away... so I bought another. This lipstick treats my lips really well. I find that after an hour's journey to work using public transport (and so going from cold to warm and back to cold again several times!) my lips are still soft, the colour coverage is still excellent, and I have absolutely no need to apply a layer of Vaseline before this product. The colour is bold and strong and doesn't fade for hours. One thing I have noticed unfortunately is that this lipstick finds eating and drinking particularly fatal - it does need to be reapplied after lunch! I've used this lipstick solely in a winter context so far, but I have complete faith in the colour being able to carry me right through summer - the product has an SPF of 20, and will protect my lips as much from the sunshine and UV damage as it has from the cold air.

        A fun, moisturising lipstick from Rimmel London cosmetics.

        I purchased this during the summer from a market stall for £2, which I thought was quite a bargain at the time as it hadn't been out all that long - full price is currently £5.99 in Boots. I don't normally buy too many lipsticks but I was out for a fresh and fun look, and the price was cheap so got this lipstick in shade Vintage Rose (180) - a dirty pink, Rose Sorbet (110) a brightish pink, and Soft Coral (600), which is a soft and shiny coral colour. I'll focus on the Coral one, as I like that shade the best and I use that the most! There is a big round sticker on the bottom which is coloured similar to the shade, and is very clear to associate with which colour and shade code it is. The packaging is quite distinctive, as it is purple and VERY shiny, with a shiny silver band in the middle, so you wouldn't have much problem trying to find this in your handbag! the case is a long rectangular shape, which is slightly angled at the top of the lid, and there is the Rimmel crown logo on the lid, which adds to the branding of the product. The lid pops on and off very easily, and I haven't had any problems with it coming off by accident. Personally I think the packaging is bordering on the tacky side, as its obvious it is a cheaper brand compared to the bigger cosmetic brands such as MAC etc. However, for the price, I'm not going to complain! Plus, like I say, it's quite easy to find as its so distinctive looking. The lipstick glides on really easily and offers a nice, slightly shimmery, colour, which you can have on as light or as bold as you want. It is indeed very moisturising and your lips feel really soft when you wear it. it feels just like if I had a lipbalm on. Staying power is okay but not excellent with this lipstick, so once I've eaten, I do need to reapply it. Personally, I wouldn't say it's the kind of lipstick you can use Lipcote with for extra staying power, as you'd need to blot it and then apply Lipcote on, and this I imagine would reduce the moisturising effect and shinyness that this lipstick offers. I'm sure you could buy this lipstick really cheap now in some bargain places, so its worth a try if you like the feel of a lipbalm, but want the colour of a lipstick. As a non-lipstick wearer, this is a really nice lipstick for me, as it gives me a bit of colour along with it making my lips feel nice and soft like with Vaseline or a lipbalm. I think its great!

        This lipstick is guaranteed to send you to heaven and back

        My lips are like anybody's lips in the winter, dry and practically dying of thirst perhaps or maybe its just feeling down, i'm not sure but what i DO know is that water won't work, exfoliating won't work (i don't care what you say Jenny Frost, it just won't). So i guess the only thing i should do is look for that perfect lipstick which will make my lips look refreshed and 'renew' them i guess. I came across the Rimmel New Moisture Renew Lipstick whilst i was out, nosying around in the make-up department which is as confusing as ever and filled to the brim with hundreds of differently branded products. So i came across this one and thought to myself 'here we go again, another branded product which is gonna disappoint me' but i have to say in this case - i was wrong. It actually really refreshed my lips and made them look younger (if thats possible), there were different colours to choose from which was excellent, i loved them so much that i choose more than one colour to take home and try out (my favourite being dark purple which reflected my almost goth-like dark moods lol). But i also choose a slightly light pink which were my natural lips colour and which made my lips look very moisturised and fresh, especially teamed with light eye make-up. However, it can be quite tricky when it comes to taking it off so take your time ladies and also there is wear and tear unfortunately so you may have to keep up to date with your lipstick appliances and not forget to refill the tank (if you know what i mean). But this lipstick will help make you look fresh and beautiful in any situation, whether its a special occasion such as a wedding to your normal work day situation. In fact, it may brighten up your work day if you're feeling a little down and moody, just add a little smile and smack on some New Moisture Renew lipstick, which would be sure to renew you.

        Disadvantages

        A good lipstick.

        I've got the bronze version of this Moisture Renew lipstick (it was only 99p from Boyes!) in the shade Summer Angel, a sheer toffee brown with a very very slight hint of pink. ~Packaging and Appearance~ Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick comes in a metallic purple tube (or, in my case, a bronze one) with the trademark Rimmel Crown embossed on the top. There is a translucent bar in the middle with a silver bar going through it, and a gold bar in the bronze variety. On the bottom of the tube will be a sticker stating what colour your lipstick is and the name of the shade. I find that with lipsticks, the sticker on the bottom rarely matches the true shade inside! ~Product~ Like all lipsticks, you just twist the tube to see it elevate. This Rimmel lipstick has a slight scent to it - a weak perfume scent, which is a lovely and subtle. The lipstick really was packed with moisture, which made it easy to apply. It certainly hydrated my lips - they were lovely and smooth. However, the lipstick didn't have much staying power - it only lasted for about an hour before I had to re-apply it, but it lasts about three hours with some clear Rimmel Vinyl Lipgloss to lock the colour in. ~Value~ Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick is £5.99 from Boots and Superdrug, but go to Boyes or Poundland instead - it's only a pound at both shops!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I think if my skin was a little darker, this would be the perfect product for me.

          Overview This is a lipstick from Rimmel London, and I bought it in 'Nude delight' because I'm on the quest for the perfect nude and this one had got some really good reviews. It costs around £5.99 from Boots, and Boots also claim: 'Ultimate Colour Indulgence with SPF 20 Protection. Now infuse lips with perfectly luscious, luminous and richer colour: a wide & fine selection of perfectly blended, sumptuous shades. Caring colour complex of vitamin A, C & E, anti-oxidants and SPF 20 protects lips from everyday damageLips so cared for, true colour is maximised! Moisturising lip colour that cares Up to 70% more hydrated lips Colour is maximised all day long' Good points Firstly, this is definitely a moisturising lipstick. I'm used to wearing just vaseline all the time, and so it's not quite as moisturising as that, but there is definitely no drying, and it has a nice sheen to it. The price is also quite good, lots of lipsticks are much more expensive than this and it definitely lasts a long time. The packaging is probably the best thing about this product in my opinion though! It's a lovely bright, clear purple case, with the silver Rimmel crown on the top of the lid. It has the usual twist action to push the lipstick up, and the lid also clicks on nicely so you don't have to worry about it falling off in your bag. Bad points Unfortunately like most lipsticks, the colour does catch on any dry skin you may have, so good preparation is necessary. I just scrub my lips with an old toothbrush and then apply a thin layer of vaseline, this prevents any flakiness. However, this means it wears off very quickly, which isn't ideal, it means you have to keep reapplying. Another bad point: the colour isn't right for me! :( I can see why it would be a good nude, but unfortunately I'm very pale, so it just looks brown on me. I need a slightly pinker, more coral-y colour. I'm hanging on til after my holidays though when I might be a little more tanned, because I really do want to like this product!

            A 4 Star Lippy.

            In my quest for the perfect lip colour Ive been trying out a load of products recently from loads of different ranges and this is one that I have been wanting to try for ages so when I spotted it in Poundland a few weeks ago I snapped it right up. Im not a massive fan of lipsticks normally as I think they often exaggerate dry lips and create a crusty sort of look but as I really liked the shade of this lipstick and it was only £1 so I figured I had nothing to lose. Also as this product is actually supposed to add extra moisture to your lips I figured I wouldnt have any kind of problem when it came to using this and I have to say I have been really surprised. Useful Information: Price: £5 But Have A Look In Poundland First. Stockists: Boots, Superdrug, Poundland ETC Shades: There is a really wide range of shades available in this product so Im not going to list them all but I personally chose the shade "Soft Coral". The range is lots of pinks and reds but they are quite natural so I think everyone will find something they like that can be worn in the day and at night. This is super easy to apply as the lipstick is slightly angled so it fits your lips much better and glides on a lot easier. I find that lipsticks are way to thick normally so it is quite hard to just glide them onto your lips but this one is totally different. Instead of feeling like your bog standard lipstick it feels more like your applying gloss or balm because it glides onto your lips and feels much lighter on your lips than an ordinary lipstick. I was defnately shocked at how good this felt whilst I was applying it and it was not what I was expecting at all. Now even though this claims to hydrate and moisturise your lips I still recommend exfoliating your lips before using this as I reckon ALL lipsticks exaggerate dry lips so I just didnt want to take the chance. I had expecting the colour of this to look really matte but it didnt at all and in my opinion this looks and feels more like a coloured gloss rather than a lipstick. Having said that though the colour is really light yet bold enough so people will know your wearing lip colour. The shade is personally chose it quite natural but Im definately going to try out some of the brighter, bolder colours in the future. I reckon the colour lasts on your lips for about 5 hours before it starts to fade so I only need to re-apply it once in a day and that in my opinion is great staying power. Im not to sure whether or not this helps to moisturise your lips but I have only been using it for about a week so that may not be long enough for me to see really positive results. However while this is on my lips it does feel really soft and doesnt dry my lips out at all so I definately recommend this for people who want a great lipstick that isnt like the norm and I reckon you will be pretty surprised if you try this one. I fully recommend it as the colours are great and it does look and feel great while your wearing it. Whether or not it helps heal and hydrate your lips though remains to be seen.

              Want a long lasting lippy? buy this one!

              I only purchase this lipstick a few months ago. The first time I actually wore it was for a college production of Moulin Rouge! (where a lot of red and pink lipstick was required!) I tired a pink shade and it had a strong color which was great. As performing takes a lot of energy and loads of drinking water is required, I was worried that the lipstick would rub off and would need re-applying before going on stage but surprise, surprise it stayed on and no one could notice that it rubbed off and it still had it's strong color! At the end of the performance I could still see the strong color! I even wore the lipstick on a night out with my girls and the results were the same. Strong color, kissable lips and couldn't tell if the lipstick had rubbed off or not! The lipstick is sold in all shades from red to pink and nude to brown and sold at a reasonable price at about four to five pounds. Since buying the first lip stick i bought two more one which was a nude color which looks very natural and the second one was a glamorous pink which when applied it gave a very Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe look! So this is defo worth buying if you want a strong lipstick that you last the night!

              I will try this in another colour buy summer angel is more of a balm than a full colour lipstick

              Another little product I picked up lately on an absolute bargain was rimmel moisture renew lipstick. I found this in the pound shop and decided to give it a go considering the price I wasn't really losing out on anything if it didn't like it. The colours available at the time all tended to be dark browns or vibrant reds but I went for the only lighter shade which I could find and this was summer angel which is a shimmery pink. For some reason the lipstick I have is different in design to the one displayed in the dooyoo picture as mine isn't a nice purple it is actually a dark bronze colour. The rimmel indentation on the lid and the official stickers confirm this is a rimmel moisture renew lipstick so the only thing I can think of is it is a special edition variety or an older model of the new lipstick. Lipstick for me isn't the most essential item and through the day I like to keep things simple and have a nice shimmery barely there colour and that's why I opted for summer angel. The colour isn't bright pink neither is it dark pink. It sits in the middle and appears to be a rather nice shimmer of translucent lipstick. I must admit this lipstick is a lot more wet that usual ones I have tried in the past but I take this to be for it being super moisturising. The colour is sheer but not very matte and can look like a gloss at times rather than the look of a lipstick. After using this my lips feel really smooth and moisturised however the lipstick doesn't stick around for very long and does need to be re applied a good few times during the day. As a lip stick I would have to say I really liked the colour but I can't rate it very high. If this product was advertised as a lip conditioner or a balm then my rating would be higher as it does add a lot of moisture. Overall I will be trying different colours in this lipstick in the future as a few reviews suggest this lipstick is nice in other shades so it won't put me off and in the meantime I will continue to use summer angel to help keep my lips moisturised and in nice condition. The benefits of this lipstick are good but I wouldnt recommend the summer angel shade if you want to create a lipstick look.

                Might not buy again

                For me, this was too oily or wet. It smudges a little and since I started using it again I have had trouble (I have 'stupid fingers') and have had to redo it when I wanted my face closer to perfection. The packaging is a little garish, metallic purple :p with a crown moulded into the top of it, in a sort of square prism shape, I preferred the look of it in its previous incarnation though that fell apart so perhaps it is an improvement. I do wonder if that affects the price but I have never been a good judge of prices. I wonder if they have changed the formula because it did not seem to smudge in the same way the previous period I used it for. Perhaps people buying it should wait a while before using it, leaving it to dry out a bit? None of these concerns are major. Just be wary if you have stupid fingers.
