Hello dolls! As I am totally swollen by the winter spirit right now, I went dark lipstick hunting last week. The new Rimmel Moisture Renew lipsticks (£6.49) have just launched in my country so I just had to pay a visit to the counter after hearing so many fab things about the range. Apparently, Rimmel have reformulated the Moisture Renew line and have added some new shades to it as well. After seeing tons of swatches online, I decided that I had to get my hands on one of the new shades - Dark Night Waterl-oops (which is supposed to be a dupe for MAC Rebel, which I adore). Sadly I couldn’t find it so I opted for Slone’s Plum instead and I couldn’t be happier with it!
Slone’s Plum is this gorgeous deep wine red, plum-y color with some blue undertones to it. It has teeny tiny bit of shimmer running through it but it is almost undetectable and definitely couldn’t be spotted easily. I absolutely adore the dark, almost vampy shade because it compliments my skin tone beautifully and makes my teeth appear whiter, which is always a good thing. Also, I think that Sloan’s Plum is a very sophisticated shade and if you’re into deeper, darker lip colors, you will adore this and it will surely boost your confidence. I’ve gotten massive amount of compliments over the past week when I was wearing this beaut and it definitely makes a statement. :)
Apart from the stunning color, I am incredibly pleased with the formula of the new Moisture Review lipsticks. This first thing I noticed in Slone’s Plum was the incredible richness and pigmentation of the shade. The color pay off is amazing and you only need one swipe across your lips to get if fully opaque. If you’d rather go for more of a sheer finish, you can just dab the product lightly on your lips and you’ll be good to go. Another thing I adore about this lipstick is that if has beautiful glossy finish. I have to mention though, that Slone’s Plum does stain the lips but I actually like that as it kind of prolongs the wear time. When you apply the lipstick it feels rather balmy and moisturizing and not heavy in the slightest. It is not sticky or grainy (like some other Rimmel lipsticks I’ve tried) and it feels nice and buttery on the lips. You know that I have ridiculously dry lips and I’m happy to announce that I can wear this gem without any balm underneath and it would feel comfortable enough. Yay! Slone’s Plum also doesn’t accentuate any dry patches or imperfections, which is great. Regarding the balm-y texture of the lipstick, I find that is has pretty decent wear time (around 4 hours on me). One thing that I’m not fond about this range though is the odd, old laddish scent (and taste) that the lipsticks have but I’m coping.
I think I’ve just discovered my new favorite drugstore lipstick range and I definitely recommend checking it out! I have been really, really impressed by the new Moisture Renew lipsticks as they have beautiful color selection, the formula is great and doesn’t dry out my lips and I just love the glossy finish. As for Slone’s Plum, what can I say – it’s love! I’ve been wearing it loads this past week and don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon! <3
