Review – Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Coral Queen

I found this lipstick the other day in Superdrug and fell in love with it. I was was actually ridiculously excited by it and wanted to try it on straight away.

It is THE most perfect pinky coral colour for me. I've been looking for my lipstick that I can wear for that pop of colour on the lips that everyone wants this season and this is definitely it!

Coral Queen

The packaging is super cute. Metallic purple with the Rimmel London crown imprinted on the lid. I always think that because of this, Rimmel looks very much targeted towards teenage girls, but I still love it!

The formula seems to live up to its name and feels quite moisturising on the lips, which I love. It goes on smoothly and doesn't seem to stick to any dry parts. It looks very vibrant but is more forgiving than red lipsticks would be when it comes to applying it.

Unfortunately after the first couple of applications the bullet started to feel a little grainy, but the coverage still seems really good to me. I guess that's the difference between a £6 lipstick and something double the price from Mac. Not going to complain, this is much more affordable!

I haven't worn this out properly to see how long it lasts, but I'm sure I will be soon, because this is the first coral lipstick that I've found that has been so perfect for me.
Maybe I'll try this with some natural eyes when the weather's a little more predictable.

Before this I hadn't really bought much from Rimmel besides nail varnishes, but I'm not sure why! I'll definitely be keeping my eye on them from now on. Maybe eye shadow singles next.. 

Have you tried any Rimmel Moisture Renew lipsticks? Are there any other products by them that I should try out?

  3. I've heard so much about this lipstick, it really has been a buzz product. The colour looks really strong, which I love, and I like that it is in fact a softening lipstick. Might have to nip to Boots after work ;) x
