Rimmel Berry Queen (400) Moisture Renew Lipstick

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick: Berry Queen

Rimmel Berry Queen (400) Moisture Renew Lipstick ($5.47 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich blue-based red with a glossy, high-shine finish. It’s nearly opaque, and it has a more emollient finish, so it glides onto lips, but it may bleed on those who find darker lip colors to feather on them.

The Moisture Renew formula applied smoothly, but the scent reminded me of a synthetic floral that was caught between perfume-y and wax-y–not particularly appealing but doesn’t last beyond the tube. In the past, I have experienced less than average wear (two to three hours) with Rimmel’s Moisture Renew lipsticks, but this shade lasts around four on my lips. However, for a moisturizing lipstick, I don’t find it moisturizing. I wouldn’t call it drying, but my lips were ready for balm after wearing this for four hours.

  • Product: 26/30
  • Value: 9/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

FINAL THOUGHTS: If it were more moisturizing, this would live up better to its name–but since it’s supposed to be moisturizing and it’s not, that hurt the quality score. This is a red that should work on a variety of skin tones, particularly cooler ones.

What We’re Wearing, Vol. 002

My favorite look from the past week was MAC Dalliance + MAC Centre Stage.  That’s it!  Very simple.  I used MAC Sur Blush on cheeks with Gana Blush to highlight, and finished by slicking on MAC So Vain Kissable Lipcolour.
