I'm always on the hunt for a good moisturizing lipstick since my lips are usually pretty dry (I tend to chew on them as a nervous habit--I should really just exfoliate them with a good scrub and leave them alone!). I thought I would try Rimmel's Moisture Renew lipstick because Rimmel makes some great claims about the formula.
This is a really beautiful pinky coral with gold shimmer. I think it looks very pretty with a pinky coral or pinky peach blush like NARS Orgasm.
It is somewhat sheer, lightweight, and has a thin texture. It has a really strong smell that to me smells sort of floral-y and sunscreen-y and kind of skin lotion-y all at the same time (I'm guessing the sunscreen in it probably has something to do with the smell). The scent dissipates after a few minutes, but the first few minutes are kind of unpleasant. It feels slightly moisturizing and not at all drying. It is quite and glossy and kind of slippery.

Of note, Rimmel makes one of the few lipsticks at the drugstore with sunscreen. Too bad it isn't a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects from UVA and UVB rays--it only protects from the UVB.
