Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine Lipsticks Review

Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine Lipsticks Review

I've been enjoying many of the new releases from Rimmel lately and the new Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine Lipsticks are no exception. 


Liquid lipsticks may be here there and everywhere right now but I am definitely more of a traditional lipstick girl. There's something about a creamy lipstick that just looks so delectable on pillowy lips, I'll take healthy, hydrated, youthful looking lips over dry, cracked, caking liquid lipstick any day.

The new Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine Lipsticks* make for the perfect daily lipstick, ideal for all occasions, in fact these lipsticks have been the only lip products I have been reaching for on a daily basis. When a product makes it into your handbag immediately after first swatch, you know it's a keeper!

Formulated with Mango Seed Butter along with vitamins A, C & E, these lipsticks feel incredibly comfortable and are effortless to apply. The formula is lightweight, conditioning and very forgiving on imperfections. The finish is glossy without a hint of tackiness, and the subtle juicy mango scent dissipates soon after application. If you are a little put off by strong punches of colour or simply enjoy sheerer opacity in your lipsticks the Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine* are a must have, each shade (excluding the lighter nudes) give the lips a beautiful tint but allow the natural pigmentation of your lips to peak through. I am particularly fond of tapping the lipstick onto the lips and patting out the colour with my finger for a natural looking flush of colour.

Is anyone else getting Dior Addict Lip Glow vibes from the girly packaging too? Props to Rimmel for keeping true to the traditional lipstick bullet shape, if you remember my review of the Rimmel The Only 1 Lipsticks* you may recall that I wasn't too impressed by their awkward shape. You will be happy to know that the Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine Lipsticks* are super easy to apply even for the most inexperienced makeup novice. Like any other glossy lipstick formulation, don't expect all day longevity, keep your lipstick on hand for touch ups throughout the day

My personal top picks from the range include Red-Y, Set, Go! a stunning red apple shade, Spin All Spring a beautiful coral which is hands down the only coral shade to date I have fallen head over heels for and Better and Brighter a stunning rosy brown nude perfect for every day wear.

The Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine Lipsticks* are hardly a revolutionary makeup product but they've absolutely won me over.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow (Light to Medium) Review

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow (Light to Medium) Review

Charlotte Tilbury products often feature heavily on my wishlists and earlier this year I was fortunate enough to be gifted the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow. It's quite possibly the most glamorous beauty product I own!


The Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow is a compact powder duo with a sculpting bronzer on one side paired with a highlighting shade. The weighted, gold, Gatsby era packaging is simply exquisite, reminiscent of vintage makeup and silver screen starlets. I feel like a mighty fine fancy lady whenever I reach for the Filmstar Bronze & Glow, it's decadent and in my opinion, reflects it's higher price tag fairly. I own the shade Light to Medium but Charlotte also offers a Medium to Dark option for those with deeper skin tones.

The powders themselves are silky soft, very finely milled but do kick up a little excess powder when a brush is dipped in, I am always sure to tap the excess off my brush before applying to the skin.

The bronzing shade is quite unique when compared to the most used bronzer in my collection Benefit's Hoola Bronzer. Hoola is a very yellow toned matte bronzer when compared to Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze which leans more red toned and has a soft satin finish.

Filmstar Glow is quite comparable to other powder highlighters in my complexion but stunning nonetheless. It's a highly pigmented champagne gold that blends seamlessly onto the top of the cheekbones without emphasising textured skin. In both colour and formula Filmstar Glow bears similarity to The Balm's Mary Lou-Manizer, but it is slightly less frosty, a little deeper in colour and less warm toned.

If you are an avid highlighting and bronzing addict or love to collect beautifully packaged luxury makeup, the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow is definitely a must have product to add to your collection. It's almost too beautiful to use... almost.
