Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick

Who can get through the drugstore makeup section without at least one lipstick landing in their cart? I doubt many hands just flew up... Get ready to add a few more tubes to your stash, because the new Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick are F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! Read on!

I've yet to find a Rimmel Lipstick I didn't like, but the Moisture Renew formula is perfection in a tube. Formulated with Vitamin A, C and E these feel more like lip balm than lipstick as they're super hydrating and have a light, creamy feel. All the benefits of a balm, with the pigment of a lipstick. The only downside to these is the scent. While it's not terrible, it's a perfume-y scent that I don't particularly love. Upside is that it doesn't linger around once applied, or leave any kind of odd taste on lips.

Summer Angel is a pink-beige-nude with a shimmery/frost finish. I was a bit apprehensive when I saw this in the tube, but the frost isn't over the top. The shade is quite pretty on, as it's that little bit more interesting than your average nude.

Red Alert is a super saturated cherry red that's not quite cool, but not totally warm either. The shade is gorgeous, but with this balmy formula (that has some slip on lips), it's on the high maintenance side. You'll definitely want to do the finger trick to save your teeth from an always awkward lipstick on teeth situation.

Overall, I am totally in love with these lipsticks! The range currently has twenty-two shades which I will more than likely be perusing (and purchasing a handful of) on my next drugstore visit. Tried these? Thoughts?
