Current Favourite: Lipstick

Hey lovelies! Hope you are all doing well! As I'm a student and unfortunately don't have a huge disposable income every month (boohoo) I don't get to try enough new products to warrant monthly favourite posts. So I thought I would just do 'Current Favourite' posts as and when something really stands out to me. For the last couple of months it has been this beaut of a lipstick!

I present to you Rimmel's Moisture Renew Lipstick in shade 180 Vintage Pink. It's a gorgeous plum shade which I feel suits my skin tone well (Mac NC20-25). Recently I have become really lazy with my make-up routine so have just been ditching the eyeshadow and liner and just applying tons of mascara and this gorge lip colour and away I go! (Of course foundation, bronzer, eyebrows etc could never be ditched!)

As far as the 'Moisture Renew' claim goes - it definitely isn't a drying lippie but I don't think it's particularly moisturising either. It leaves a nice glossy finish on the lips so I don't usually apply a gloss over the top but staying power isn't amazing, probably due to the glossy factor! I'd say it lasts about an hour on my lips tops (and that's without eating or drinking etc). However, I am on the lookout for a plum lip liner to wear underneath to prolong the staying power!

What do you think? It's pretty isn't it! Although it's not a particularly summery shade I have never been into lighter lip colours and could never pull off a nude lip so this is right up my street! It's available here and in most drugstores and it's only £6.29!!

Overall, I would highly recommend not just this shade but the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lippies in general as they have a wide range of shades (another fave of mine is Soft Coral) and are really good quality for such a bargainous prize!

Thank you so much for reading and commenting! It truely does make my day! xxx
