Hope you guys are having a great Sunday! I’m up earlier than usual today as I type this out while sipping hot tea.
Today’s review is of a great affordable lipstick. Rimmel’s Moisture Renew range is really good bright colours and are good quality wise as well.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion is a pretty pinky red shade. I’d say it looks a tad bit more pink in the tube but more red on the lips. You can see a comparison pic below, it’s a bit more red than YSL Rose Asarine, L’oreal Glam Shine Pomegranate Punch is more pink and a bit deeper. But Rose Passion is more pink than Revlon Lacquer Balm in Provocateur.
The formula of this is really nice on the lips. The lipstick is stiff in the tube, I don’t think it’s the kind that will melt of or break easily. It imparts very pigmented colour is thin layers. One may not be enough to get full pigmentation but 2-3 swipes and you get a full vibrant colour. It also glides easily on the lips, no tugging.
On the lips it’s very lightweight and looks more glossy than creamy. That said, it transfers very easily and can looks lighter in the middle after a sip. But considering the price, this is worth it if you’ll be retouching.
This typically lasts for 4-5 hours, more than that and it starts fading a bit unevenly. These aren’t hydrating, so I definitely need a lip balm underneath but that’s just me.
I actually like the packaging. It’s shiny and purple! The cap feels a bit wobbly at times but it still looks good! Overall, it’s not a long lasting lipstick but you get comfortable wear and a great colour.
You get 4g of product for Rs. 475. With every brand increasing their prices, Rimmel really comes out on top as being affordable and good quality.
