review & swatches: rimmel london moisture renew lipsticks

Hey guys!

Todays post is all about these gorgeous new additions to the Rimmel London line. I was sent a selection of these to try out and I am loving them so much that I decided to write this to tell you guys about them! Especially given that these are drugstore releases, so they are easy on the wallet! I think these are the new re-formulated version of the Moisture Renew line with all new colours and packaging, but I'm not 100% sure (#badbeautyblogger). In any case, I have been playing around with these for a week now and I have been loving everything about them!

These lipsticks are so beautiful to wear - so beautifully creamy and opaque. They glide on super easy, and are are pretty much full pigmentation with one swipe. The fact that they are 'moisture renew' lipsticks means that they aren't drying on your lips, and they don't catch on any dry patches either. While I'm not sure if they actually moisturise my lips any more than a normal lip balm, they don't take away any hydration either.

Heres an overview of the lipsticks I own!

Ringa Ringa Roses

A beautifully light pink with shimmers throughout.

Vintage Pink

A gorgeous everyday mauve, with a hint of purple undertones

As You Want Victoria

A muted fuschia pink shade, that's still incredibly wearable!

Diva Red

A deeper wine red shade.

In Love With Ginger

My favourite of the bunch - an a very warm red with a strong orange undertone. The most perfect summer colour, I cannot wait to wear it with bronzed skin.

Swatches (l-r): Ringa Ringa Roses, Vintage Pink, As You Want Victoria, Diva Red & In Love With Ginger

Can you see how gorgeous these colours are? Just absolutely beautiful, and they all swatch like butter and stay incredibly creamy. I should also mention that the staying power of these, especially the darker shades, is amazing. When swatching these, I wiped my arms with a makeup remover wipe and then soap and the colour still remained faintly. I definitely recommend trying these out if you are after a lipstick that is easy to apply and wear for everyday, and that isn't going dry or crack your lips.

You can find these here at Priceline for $13.95AU!
