Rimmel Moisture Reniew Lipsticks-Review and swatches!

Hello ladies! December's already here, I cannot believe how quickly time passes by. As you may have noticed I don't write as often as I used to and let me explain why. First of all I got a job that is waaaaay too tiring, so even when I'm not working I don't have the courage/inspiration to update my blog as often, and secondly something terrible happened to me and my family and my mood is really, really bad so I don't feel like blogging much for the time being. I do, however appreciate  very much your support all this time, your comments make me smile and I feel very lucky because it's only been 1 year and a month this blog's alive and I have more than 1000 members already and I've met some really wonderful people through blogging, so, thank you very, very much for everything! I'm truly grateful and I promise I'll try to write as often as possible, no matter how tired or upset I may feel.

Now, let's move to the products I want to talk about. Surprise, surprise! This blog post is once more, about lipsticks. You know I'm obsessed with them and own way too many, I really want to review all of them if possible, so there we go! Rimmel, as you probably know is a drugstore brand that offers a wide selection of products in reasonable prices, I really want to try more of their stuff but I only own those 3 lipsticks for the time being.

They are from the Moisture Renew range, which as the name indicates concludes of hydrating/moisturizing lipsticks which I normally don't like much, I'm a fan of matte, pigmented lipsticks no matter if they dry out my lips, which is not the case here.

I own the shades Notting hill nude which is a beautiful pinkish nude, Pink chic which is a soft pink and Violet pop which is a pinkish/violet raspberry (if that makes any sense at all) shade.

My take on the Rimmel moisture renew lipsticks:

They have a beautiful packaging which is also sturdy and the product's safe in it. I like the fact that in the bottom of it you can see the color and name of each lipstick, but I dislike the fact they're not easy to stand upside down on a lipsticks case because of their shape. They are very moisturizing on the lips, they actually feel like a lip balm, and the pigmentation's okay, nothing extraordinary, it's not that strong but it can easily be built up. They don't last  long on the lips but I didn't expect them to either, since they're hydrating lipsticks but that's fine with me as it's very easy to reapply without even having to use a mirror, especially in the lightest shades. They look beautiful on the lips and they don't gather on the fine lines of the lips. However, they have a huge disadvantage in my humble opinion... that smell. Ughhhh! I normally don't have issues with lipsticks' smells, but those have such a strong -flowery I think- smell I can hardly stand it! It's such a pity because they're really nice lipsticks but their smell is way too intense, I may have to try taking the lids off for a day or two and see if it goes away...

Overall, I'd recommend those lipsticks to those who love hydrating lipsticks and DON'T MIND intense smells. I don't think I can think of another disadvantage except their intolerable scent but that's enough on its own to prevent one from using them... I'll try to de-scent them and let you know if it worked.

I had gotten mine from for 1 pound each, but it unfortunately no longer ships to Greece anymore, but you can also find them at the greek e-shop for 4,30 euros each, for 8.62 euros each (there's often a -30% off so keep an eye on it!), ebay , etc.

Have you tried them? Would you?
Let me know what you think, kisses!

  2. Το Notting Hill Nude νομίζω μ'άρεσε περισσότερο απ'όλα! Μ'αρέσουν πολύ τα κραγιόν της Rimmel για κάθε μέρα!

  3. Κι εμένα μ' αρέσει πολύ η Rimmel, πήρα πρόσφατα και το κόκκινο από τη σειρά της Kate Moss (το οποίο μυρίζει και ωραία) και το έχω λατρέψει! Φιλιά! :)
