Review: Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in In Love With Ginger


We all have a lipstick that we bought purely because of the colour and maybe with no intention of ever wearing it. I thought that this was that lipstick was mine. I bought the Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in In Love With Ginger a rather long time ago and never got around to wearing it, purely because of the colour. It is an intense, deep corally orange that can look quite intimidating in the tube. I also never found the right time to wear it.

Usually I don't comment on the packaging as what you see is generally what you get but I really liked the packaging this lipstick comes in. It's no Chanel but I think that if you took off the Rimmel indention from the tube and put it in front of me, I wouldn't have guessed that it came from them.



A couple of days ago it was an unusually warm, sunny Spring day so I decided to give it a little go to really get me in the mood for the upcoming warmer months. I prepped my lips beforehand with my Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub and a lip balm then used a couple of generous coatings of In Love With Ginger. I always have a niggle in the back of my mind that whenever I wear lipstick I always look a bit of a fool but not this time. I was actually pleasantly surprised.

I found the formula to be really creamy and easy to apply on the lips. One swipe on the lips would suffice as it is so opaque on the lips but I applied a couple of coatings out of habit. The lipstick itself was incredibly moisturising and I didn't find it drying at all. Usually I find that bright lipsticks can be a bit more drying than paler colours but this is lovely and moisturising and didn't feel uncomfortable on the lips at all.

I did find that this lipstick faded within a couple of hours, especially after eating and drinking which seemed to take the majority of it off my lips which was a shame but it's no big deal. 

          
Overall, I really enjoyed using this lipstick and now I want to give one of the other 20 shades a try. In Love With Ginger was incredibly easy to apply and moisturising on the lips. Unfortunately it did wear within a couple of hours, especially after eating and drinking but overall, it's a lovely bright lipstick that I will definitely be wearing in the summer!
