I am back with one more lipstick from the Rimmel “Moisture Renew” range. The super shiny packaging always called out to me, but somehow, I could not pick them up until recently. I have 3 lipsticks from this particular range (you can read the review of the shade Dreamy here). Today, I am reviewing the shade “Amethyst Shimmer.”
Rs. 500 for 4 gm.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick offers maximized, radiant color. The innovative formula with 3 super moisturizers will make your lips feel up to 70% more hydrated and up to 60% smoother! The SPF 20, Vitamins A, C and E keeps your lips protected. Lips so cared for, true color is maximized.
My Experience with Rimmel Amethyst Shimmer Moisture Renew Lipstick:
The packaging as I already mentioned is super shiny purple with a color-coded sticker at the base, which has both the name and number of the shade. The cap shuts with a click and is pretty sturdy, so there is no chance of it opening up in the makeup pouch. The bullet is a regular one and nothing unique. Overall, an attractive packaging to look at, also simple enough for regular use.
The texture of “Amethyst Shimmer” is smooth and in spite of the shimmers in the shade, it does not feel uncomfortable. The shimmers can only be seen and not felt on the lips, thankfully. The pigmentation is medium as the shade is light; but it is good as it would have been a cheap-looking shade otherwise. For those with pigmented lips, applying a lip liner beneath is suggested.
The shade is a shimmery magenta. On application, the shimmer blends well with the shade and gives a pretty shine to the color. The shade can be built up on repeated swiping, but for me, the sheer shade works better.
The staying power is medium, like 3-4 hours maximum, after which it fades. The shimmers travel a bit here and there which is not a good thing at all; so I prefer to wear this for 1-2 hours, for groceries and so.
Pros of Rimmel Amethyst Shimmer Moisture Renew Lipstick:
- Pretty packaging.
- Sheen and color.
- Texture is non gritty.
- Affordable (on discount, mostly).
Cons of Rimmel Amethyst Shimmer Moisture Renew Lipstick:
- Poor staying power.
