Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks

Having always been a lover of lip gloss as opposed to lip sticks (I always found them drying), I am only just discovering how great lip sticks can be if you get the right formula, and so I'm currently trying to build up a little beginners collection.

I was browsing Fragrance Direct the other day as I'd heard that they do some great bargains (Essie nail polish is only £1.99, saving £6, for example).  I was on the website for AGES when some lipsticks caught my eye.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks, which retail in Boots for £6.49 were only 99p!!  WHAT? How could I say no to that? Even without swatching, for that price you can't go wrong! There are currently 14 shades on the website to choose from so I went for the shades 520 Violet Pop and 820 Cherry-Licious.  The packaging looks a bit 80's cheese but that doesn't really matter too much to me.  I just wanted to try them!  I was pleasantly surprised and rather chuffed at this little beauty find!  Like I said above, I haven't really got much of a lipstick collection so I can't really compare them to much else but they feel amazing.  The name 'moisture renew' kind of gives them away that they aim to be less drying than your average lippy!  The thing that strikes me most though is the colours.  They

520 - Violet Pop
When this first arrived and I opened it up I was pretty scared at how dark it looks.  However, once on the lips it is so lovely.  The colour is so vibrant and it lasts well. It's dramatic compared to others yes, but not ridiculously so and it's definitely changed my mind on the darker shaded lipsticks.

Cherry-Licious isn't as dramatic as violet pop, it looks quite dark in the bullet but once on the lips its a lovely light burgundy shade (a lot lighter than it looks). I was concerned when I seen the shimmer as I don't like too much shimmer in products but this isn't too much so I can cope with that!  

All in all, I'm really pleased with my little bargains and I'm definitely gonna go back online and order some more (maybe swatch them in Boots first, cheeky!) ha!  I was reading Lily Pebbles blog the other day, who was saying how Notting Hill Nude was a very similar dupe for Tom Ford's Spanish Pink so I think I definitely need to try that one!! Although Lily actually bought it in Boots for full price! If only she had looked on FD!! Nevermind!
