Review & Swatches: Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Notting Hill Nude
I have always been a big fan of Rimmel lipsticks, even more so in recent years given their fabulous collaborations with Kate Moss (here) and groundbreaking liquid lipsticks (review here). Rimmel know how to work a good lip product. So when I heard they were reformulating their classic Moisture Renew line and adding some new shades I knew I had to get in on that action!
There are 20 shades in total, so you're spoilt for choice, but I'd highly recommend the shade 'Vintage Pink' which is one of my all-time favourites from the range. However, I've been on a bit of a mission, searching for the shade 'Notting Hill Nude' ever since Lily Pebbles reviewed and compared it to the beautiful Tom Ford's 'Spanish Pink' shade. Who could resist??

Having searched high and low at every Rimmel stand I could find, but I eventually caved and had my first Boots.ie experience. I must say, it's a beautiful 'your lips, but better' shade and I couldn't be happier with it. I'm certainly a lover of dramatic lips, but as nudes go this one is bang on the money. It's a peachey tone which definitely leans into the brown family, so it's not going to wash you out or give you the 'not universally desired' concealer-lips look. To me this is a sophisticated nod to the 90s nude in the most fabulous way possible (i.e. without the dark liner).

Of course the formula is also super comfortable, moisturising, and glossy. It has that classic Rimmel makeup smell, which I personally enjoy. And I do prefer the updated packaging. All-in-all I'd highly recommend this if you're in the market for a good nude lipstick - a bargain too at €7.95! I love it so much that I went and picked up a second one to include in this Friday's special giveaway, so be sure to check back for that!

Have you tried any from the new line?
