Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Coral Queen

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Coral Queen no. 620 - Boots (£6.29)
Left - applied straight from the bullet // Right - with clear lipgloss
I've had this lipstick for a while and never really gave it much attention as my skin is normally too pale for bright colours like this... it looks almost NEON ORANGE in the packaging and when applied from the bullet it's a little less scary but still very bright. Personally I prefer it with a clear lipgloss over the top to sort of neutralise the brightness of the colour. I absolutely love corals so this will be perfect in the coming summer months! 

What I like about the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks is that they don't dry my lips. I find that many lipsticks emphasise the dryness and generally don't look very nice, but the moisturising formula works very well for me. The lipstick has average staying on power, just like any other lipstick, but re-applying doesn't bother me granted the lipstick is a nice colour. I can't stress how good the formula is and I'm hopefully going to get more of these in the near future, and at £6.29 a pop it's not exactly going to break the bank!
