First Impression - Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipsticks (includingswatches)

When these four showed up on my door step I was super excited as I realised I didn't actually have one Rimmell Lipstick in my collection! 

I'm in love with the purple packaging of this line. They're super sleek and I love how they shine with the touch of silver. 

This range is a super creamy high gloss formula that literally glides on your lips.

I was sent four colours from the line. Here are my swatches and thoughts of each colour.

500 Diva Red

This one is such a gorgeous red. It's a really deep colour and has a blue undertone which is great for making your teeth look nice and white! I didn't use a lip liner for this application (actually I never use lip liner) and its pretty neat. No bleeding out which is a plus and it looks perfect and smooth on the lips. 

220 Heather Shimmer

For me, this isn't a colour I would normally reach for on any occasion. Whilst it's super pretty, it's not my colour. I think this one would be more suited to mature skin so I might give it to Mum. This one is not as opaque or creamy as 500 or 360 but still has quite a good colour pay off. 

210 Fancy

If I'm honest when I swatched this one on my arm, I was really disappointed, I thought it would swatch much prettier than it did. Then I put it on my lips and I fell in love! Its a sheer yet shimmery baby pink and I absolutely love this colour on my lips. This is a perfect every day colour for me.

360 As you Want Victoria

This one is my favourite of the bunch. It'd a beautiful deep fuchsia (with a hint of a red).  This colour is amazing and it's so pigmented, its crazy! This application was literally one swipe! Such a pretty glossy yet creamy formula. Once again, no lip pencil and the application still isn't too bad! 


So many ticks for this amazing range by Rimmel! I love the packaging, they smell amazing (kind of the vanilla smell that MAC lipsticks have), they're highly pigmented and they stay on for ages (3-4 hours without reapplying however they do lose their glossiness after around 2 hours). The darker colours do leave a stain which I actually don't mind except for the stains that were left on my arm after swatching all day lol. They're also super affordable. You can get these from Priceline for $13.65. I want to collect them all! 

Have you tried any of the colours in this line yet? Show me your swatches/ looks on instagram! @beautybytahanalee

  1. These are the first Rimmel lipstick I've tried and I really like them! They felt really nice on the lips (you're right when you say creamy) and I love the shades I got.. Big winners in my book :)
