Review and Swatches: Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer and Shine Lipsticks

600 'Spin It Spring' 200 'Glow-rious Pink'
I bought two of Rimmel's new Moisture Renew Sheer and Shine lipsticks a few weeks back and must say that I've really been enjoying them. Let's start with the pink packaging...what can I say? I love pink!

The shades I picked up are 600 'Spin It Spring' (a lovely peachy/ coral shade) and 200 'Glow-rious Pink'. The makeup addict in me always feels the need to pick up a warm toned shade and a cool toned shade when I feel like I'm going to really like a particular lip product.

The lipsticks are really quite sheer with just one layer, as their name would suggest, but you can build the colour up with a few swipes and they're not so sheer that you don't get any colour from them, as you can see below.

As the name would also suggest, they are really nice and moisturising. They have a nice amount of slip to them and my lips feel nourished and never dry after reapplying them several times during the day.

Speaking of reapplying, they're not the most long lasting lipsticks but I think this is to be expected from this kind of formula. Personally I really enjoy sheer, moisturising lipstick formulas for the Summer and I don't mind reapplying. It's sort of like wearing a gloss really but with more pigment than a lot of glosses have, and not as sticky! I also feel like as a result they make my lips look much plumper than they are, they sort of have a 'juicy' look to them if that is a way to describe lips?! haha.

You can find the Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer and Shine lipsticks for £6.49 via Boots here or via Superdrug here.

Have you tried these lipsticks? Do you prefer sheer, glossy lipsticks for Summer or are you more of a follower of the matte lip trend?
