Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in ‘Vintage Pink’ – Review, Swatches and worn pics

Silly me, I shared some pics of me wearing this lipstick the other day and called it ‘Vintage Rose’… no it’s ‘Vintage Pink’! – Well at least I’ve realised before putting a post up, that’d been even more silly.

I bought this lipstick just after Rimmel re-did the moisture renew range so I’ve had it a while. When I bought it, I loved it, but it’s easy to get lost amongst all of the other lip products I have and that’s exactly what this one did. I’m very very glad that I picked it as my lipstick for the day, yesterday, as I have got a renewed love for it, it’s amazing!

I love the packaging of these; it feels strong and well made but as well as that the purple outer casing and the distinctive shape mean that it’s easy to pick it up out of a collection. Though the slanted top does mean you can’t store it with the shade pointing up which would be an issue if you had more than one shade!

This shade is a gorgeous, cool toned rose sort of shade. I’m not good at describing shades but that’s what I’m thinking with this one – I definitely love the name ‘Vintage Pink’ because it really really suits the shade.

The formula is thick and creamy and not at all drying – It glides on to the skin amazingly well and the pigmentation is fabulous. In some lights it looks flatter but once it catches the light it really does look creamy and moisturising on the lips.
As much as I try to make warm toned things work for me, it’s clear that this cool toned lipstick suits my pale, cool toned skin. I absolutely love it and I think it’s an absolute all year round shade – In fact, in this pic, it’s quite close to the orchid pink colour of the year?

I definitely want more in this formula, even though I already have too many lipsticks! It’s so so good! The moisture renew lipsticks can be bought for £6.49 from both Boots and Superdrug as we as a variety of online sites. Superdrug do, currently have a 3-for-2 on all cosmetics so you could grab a bargain too.
