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

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).

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!
