Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine Lipsticks*




Hello strangers! As you may have guessed, I've been a hilarious combination of sick, busy and stressed recently, so I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front. It's hard to plan a kid's party, shop and bake everything when you're under the weather, but at the same time, I was kindly sent a set of six Rimmel Sheer & Shine lipsticks* a while back and I've really been wanting to tell you about them! I've posted about them on Instagram, but now it's time to have a closer look at the new range!

These babies have both shade names and numbering on the label. I received:

100 - Woke Up Like This
200- Glow-Rious Pink
300 - Pink Rules
500 - Red-y, Set, Go!
600 - Spin All Spring!
700 - Better & Brighter


(left - right) 100, 200, 300, 500, 600, 700.

They are called Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine and I'm definitely feeling the sheer and shine aspect! In my swatch photo I've had to apply a few layers of product otherwise the lighter shades don't really show up on my arm. I like that these can be built up for a bolder look, or worn as a light, sheer tint of colour. 

The finish is very shiny and pretty and I found these lipsticks wore quite comfortably on the lips. I'm kind of terrible at keeping non-matte formulas on my lips for long due to my habit of smacking my lips together, so for me these didn't last that long before I had to re-apply. I know it defeats the 'shine' purpose of the formula, but I actually prefer to wear these blotted off, as I like the flattering 'tint' left behind, especially from Pink Rules (300) and Red-y, Set, Go! (500).

(top - bottom): 100, 200, 300, 500, 600, 700.

Woke Up Like This (100) is too light for me and Better & Brighter (700) is right on my borderline of looking acceptable in terms of my colouring, but I may use it as a moisturisation boost before bed instead of a going-out lipstick! Spin All Spring! (600) looks confronting in the tube, however because it's so sheer, it looks really pretty if I use a light hand. Glow-Rious Pink (200) is a candy pink that for me looks the best as is (un-blotted) because it's subtle and isn't as much of a disaster once it starts to slip.

My picks of the bunch are Pink Rules (300) and Red-y, Set, Go! (500). Pink Rules is a gorgeous, bright and cheerful fuchsia pink, and as previously mentioned, it leaves a lovely stain on the lips if you blot it after application. Pink Rules, along with Red-y, Set, Go! are my absolute faves of the range. Overall, the Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine lipsticks are a great range from Rimmel, with some lovely shades perfect for Spring!

  1. These haven't arrived here yet and I truly hope they will, because this range of colors is amazing. I totally fell in love. I know that shine and sheer lipsticks are not a big boom for everyone, but I think they could be great for daily bases. :)

  6. My favourite is the red too! I find the nude to look a bit strange on me. I think I'll be reaching for these lots on Spring + Summer

    1. I love darker shades for Winter. It's good to hear what's happening on the other side of the world! xx

  9. There are some great light shades here, but somehow I feel that they might be a little sheer for me. Sheer lipsticks don't tend to wear very long on me.

    1. Bathroom renovation starting today with workers here at 8am and no bathroom for the next 6 weeks, so it's still full on. I'm trying not to have an anxiety attack, lol.

  11. Sheers don't normally appeal as my lips are freckled so I need density and intensity to cover up the blotches, but that orange (500) looks gorgeous, and the coverage might just be enough. Beaut swatches Di thanks heaps! xxx
