Review | Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick Lily Extase

Hey lovely readers!

You may well be aware that I am obsessed with lipstick and am always buying new ones even if I do not need them or have a shade similar!
I love trying out new brands and different styles or finishes.

I purchased the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick when Superdrug had 3 for 2 on all Cosmetics.
I have tried Rimmel's Kate Moss lipsticks and love them so had high hopes for this one!

Lips so cared for, true colour is maximised!
Rimmel say that there are three moisturising elements that deeply hydrate and improve lip condition instantly.
They claim that lips look 70% more hydrated and 60% smoother. There is also SPF 20 and vitamins, which is just always a bonus.

I am in love with the packaging. The purple casing is slick and stands out from all my other lipsticks.
The Rimmel logo on top of the lipstick is a lovely touch too. For a lipstick it is very attractive looking. 
The top can be stiff to pull off, but I like this as it makes me feel like the lipstick is more secure in its casing.

The colour is incredible. It is the most perfect hot pink. This makes your lips look fuller and your teeth look whiter. It is quite an intense shade and one coat is highly pigmented as shown in the swatch below.
I have worn this out at night and it looks great as it is a strong colour and I always receive compliments on my choice of lipstick!

I was very impressed with how creamy the texture of the lipstick is, it is so easy to apply and it glides on smoothly. It does feel very moisturising on the lips and I do not feel the need to wear a balm underneath.
I feel the need for touch ups every four hours or so which I think is pretty good for a drugstore lipstick.

I was interested to see how this compared to the MUA lipstick in shade 3 which I reviewed here.
Rimmel's Moisture Renew is a deeper shade and a lot more pigmented than MUA's Lipstick, which is a £1.
However they both are great lipsticks for the price you pay.
I prefer to wear the MUA lipstick during the day as it is slightly more sheer.

Overall I will definitely purchase more of the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks as they are so easy to wear and feel great on the lips. The pigmentation is great and the wide choice of colours means everyone will find a shade they like.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks are currently priced at £6.29 in Superdrug and can be found here.
