The Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer and Shine Lipsticks* have been out for quite a while now. But, I wanted to save a great, affordable and accessible review post just before Christmas. This is one of those lipstick ranges from the drugstore that make you realise how much affordable brands are filling in the gap between low and high end lipsticks. Read on to see why these lipsticks might just be perfect for you.
Left to right: 100 Woke Up Like This | 200 Glow-Rious Pink | 300 Pink Rules
500 Red-y, Set, Go | 600 Spin All Spring
As the name of this range suggests, these lipsticks are sheer and pack a punch when it comes to shine. The formula applies effortlessly and very smoothly. Lips are left looking glossy and plump.
On the lips, these lipsticks feel light weight and almost like I’m only wearing a lip balm. Therefore, it’s a very comfortable formula and you barely notice that it’s there. The only disadvantage to this type of formula I guess is longevity. But, you kind of know what you’re getting into when you pick a lightweight lipstick and you know that you’ll have to touch up during the day. So basically it isn’t a real disadvantage anyway.
I admire the sheerness because it allows for flexibility. Most of the shades are fairly night and you’re able to build them up. I think the formul also makes it easy to combine different colours to try and create different colour combinations or looks.
For example, my favourite colour from the range is 200 Glow-Rious Pink, but I actually love combining it with 300 Pink Rules. I first apply 200 and then 300 on top to add a bit more of a pop. I think that if the formula was more pigmented, you’d have less flexibility. I don’t usually wear sheer lip products so this is quite a fun element for me about this product.
One last thing I’d like to quickly mention is the scent. To me, it reminds me of something between grapefruit and that pink bubble gum scent. It’s fairly sweet, but there’s a little bit of a tangy kick to it.
You can pick up the Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer and Shine Lipsticks for $13.95 at Priceline in store or online. I think they would make the perfect gift for anyone that is newer to makeup or doesn’t like wearing anything too bold.
But, if these lipsticks aren’t up your alley and you’re looking for something smooth, pigmented and affordable, check out Rimmel’s The One range, which I also have a sneaky review on here.
