The Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick| Review


It’s raining colour indeed!

I was so happy to have been chosen to receive this Rimmel London Moisture Renew lipstick complimentary of Influenster! This lipstick is highly pigmented, which is good for me as my lips are darker than some . I find this lipstick really easy to apply and it doesn’t leave my lips feeling dry in anyway.

I received shade 360 ‘As You Want Victoria’ which is a nice vibrant pink. That’s not the colour I’d usually reach for as I tend to gravitate towards darker reds, but I do like the colour, it’s a nice addition for Spring. I like that there’s no need to go over it with a separate gloss as it has a rich glossy finish. This lipstick is part of the new and improved line of Rimmel’s Moisture Renew lipsticks launched in last October.


I am a sucker for packaging and I like the sleek look that this has with the silver casing and the clear purple cap. I found that this lipstick did cling to dry patches but, you can easily apply additional layers. This lasts for a good while, but you will definitely need to reapply after eating.

Overall with the experience I’ve had, I can say that I definitely like this lipstick. I’m excited to try the other shades soon.



**I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.**


#TheWinterProject – Day 4 of Christmas – My Winter Makeup Essentials

#TheWinterProject - Day 4 of Christmas - My Winter Makeup Essentials
Today I’ve done a combination of two posts: #TheWinterProject and 12 Days of Christmas. I hope that’s not a problem for you guys because I’ve been kind of busy lately.
This post is about my winter makeup essentials for my ideal makeup look.
First off, I chose the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream, because for winter I don’t really like using a lot of product and this BB cream is quite light on my face. Then, there’s the Smashbox Hydrating Primer and I use this so that the makeup that I do use stays all day and also because it’s hydrating which is an ideal feature for this season – but of course you apply your primer before your BB cream.
Next I use the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer to get rid of any bags that I’d have under my eyes. I’d apply a bit of eyeliner on my upper lash line and in my lower waterline and then finish off my eyes with a mascara like this CoverGirl Lash Exact Waterproof Mascara.
If I’d feel like wearing anything on my lips other than a balm then I’d go for a deep red lipstick that hydrates.
For me, my ideal winter makeup essentials would just be products that are light, easy to apply and keep my skin hydrated.
I hope you guys like this post. What would your winter makeup essentials consist of? I’d really like to know.
I’ll talk to you guys in the next post.

The One and Only TAG


This lovely tag was created by the lovely blogger at One Little Vice.

“The point of this TAG is to get an insight into your absolute beauty staples . There can be no wavering, only one product from each category can be chosen and the result should be a capsule collection that you could live with if you had to.”

– One Little Vice


The Question: If you could only have one ______ what would it be? And, in a few words, why?

  • Primer

SmashBox Photo Finish Hydrating Foundation Primer – it’s a primer that not only primes by hydrates as well and so it would be perfect for the winter and summer seasons.

  • Base Product

Urban Decay Beauty Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 20 – the SPF would really help with sun protection, and this is a light product so I wouldn’t have to deal with heaviness on an everyday basis.

  • Concealer

SmashBox High Definition Concealer – a heavy duty concealer that would be good for my really ‘baggy’ days, and I could just not use it on my good days.

  • Powder

BareMinerals Mineral Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 25 – since I’m not really a face powder wearing person, if I had to choose one I’d go with this one as it offers sheer coverage, sun protection and its great to use for all seasons.

  • Blush

Sephora Collection Double Contouring Cream Blush – For blushes I’d prefer the to apply a cream formula because it’s easy for me, but I also like the finish that powder formulas give and so this cream-to-powder would be great for me if it was the only one I could ever use again.

  • Bronzer

Stila ‘Stay All Day’ 10-in-One HD Bronzing Beauty Balm With Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – this is a high definition, age defying, beauty balm that offers SPF – and by now you guys are probably thinking that I’m on SPF overload, and you’d be right. It’s also paraben and sulfate free.

  • Highlighter

Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up – Come on, have you seen this – amazing! It offers fast and application and it’s travel size.

  • Make-up Brush (Single)

Beauty Blender – This counts as a brush right? I need a brush for a lot of things that I do and so I picked this because you can use it for all purposes and areas of the face.

  • Eyebrow Product

Razor – I don’t use any products AT ALL in my eyebrows, as long as they’re shaped up they’re fine so I see no need for me to use anything. My eyebrows are pretty thick and filled in all their own.

  • Eyeshadow (Single)

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in ‘Lost’ – Only one colour?! I guess since I’d have to wear that colour everyday for forever I’d go with a neutral shade like this medium metallic brown.

  • Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner in Noir – you can’t use liquid liner in you waterline, or at least I can’t. For me a kohl liner offers more control and I picked this kohl liner in particular because it offers longer lasting wear and it has a smudger brush at the opposite end.

  • Mascara

CoverGirl Lash Exact Waterproof Mascara – it’s waterproof, so it’s long lasting, it offers great lash definition and it really makes my eyes pop.

  • Lip Stick, Lip Gloss or Lip Stain

Sephora Collection Lollipop Lipgloss – I would want to be stuck wearing the same lip colour forever, but I guess I could just wear it on special occasions . . . nah! I’ll go with gloss, it can be subtle and offer moisturisation, which is all I’m really looking for. I don’t particularly have any favourite glosses and so I’ll just go with this clear one.

  • Lip Liner

Since I’d be wearing clear gloss all my life I don’t see the point in having a lip liner, but, if I absolutely just HAD to choose I’d go with NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, it has a velvety texture and it’s actually a lip liner and stick in one, so yeah I’d definitely go with it to pair with my gloss.

  • Lip Balm

Fresh – Sugar Lip Treatment SPF – it’s a really hydrating balm that nourishes and plumps lips! Cool, to have those properties in a balm.

  • Nail Polish

Sephora Collection 3-in-1 Perfecting Base Coat – it protects, smooths and strengthens nails. I chose this as I’m not one for having colour on my nails often, I could live without.

Phew, finally finished. I’m so tired right now.

What would your answers be in this tag?
