Swatch Session // Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer and Shine Lipstick Collection
In addition to their popular Moisture Renew Lip Collection, Rimmel has just launched their new range of Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine Lipsticks and I was lucky enough to be sent the new shades to try and put to the test!
After I ripped open the package like a kid on Christmas Day, I popped off the transparent pink lids to reveal perfect, lipstick bullets in 6 juicy new shades! At first glance they are a cocktail of pink hues but the one that caught my eye was #700, 'Better & Brighter', which is more of a nude shade. If you're a regular reader you will know I am a sucker for a good nude lipstick and adore Rimmel's Lasting Finish by Kate Nude #45 Lipstick!
On closer inspection I am also greeted by a subtle, sweet scent with a hint of citrus which was a very welcome surprise.
I have swatched each shade on my wrist below to show you the range of colours. These lipsticks are definitely buildable so I have applied 3-4 layers to show you the true hue but keep in mind that each shade will vary depending on your natural lip colour.
Shades from left to right:
#700 - Better & Brighter
#600 - Spin All Spring
#500 - Red-Y, Set, Go!
#300 - Pink Rules
#200 - Glow-Rious Pink
#100 - Woke Up Like This
On application the lipstick glides smoothly over my lips, with one coat providing a sheer shine and a few coats adding a pretty pop of colour. I like the shape of the bullet too and how the angled tip helps to create precise lines and a clean finish. After a few minutes, my lips (which have been a little chapped lately due to the cold weather) already feel softer as the formula deeply moisturises them. After further research I discovered that this formula contains nourishing ingredients such as Pomegranate Sterols, Mango Butter and Vitamins A, C and E so I know my lips are going to look good and feel great.
I found that this lipstick lasts on my lips for about 1.5 - 2.5 hours after application depending on if you are eating or drinking (and I always opt for a straw for longer lasting lipstick!).
After wearing this lipstick all weekend I am really happy with the formula and how soft and smooth my lips feel. I will definitely be throwing this lipstick in my bag to wear on the daily because it is fuss free, easy to apply and provides a subtle yet pretty pop of colour.
I would generally lean towards wearing most of these shades in Spring and Summer but because of the buildable colour and the fact they also act as a nourishing lip balm means there is no time like the present to rock the new Rimmel Sheer & Shine Lipstick collection!
