Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Coffee Shimmer

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick Coffee Shimmer

‘Rimmel’ and ‘Lipstick’ are two words that go together as well as ‘Ranbir’ and ‘Kapoor’ in my book. The few bolds from them that I own are some of my most slicked-on on a daily basis. But with their latest drop they are turning their attention to nudes and I’m listening. The shade in question is Coffee Shimmer, a brick brown. The Moisture Renew Lipstick is a sheer offering that coats the lips with a light veil of moisture-rich colour. It’s one of those ‘pat on or build-up’ jobs that will please dark lip newbies and old hands alike, though I’d throw it in the category of a ‘chic colour’; a shade that when applied just makes things look ‘polished’, not too try-hard. I like it worn best with a well-worked base and minimal eye makeup in a kind of ‘oh I just rolled out of bed and threw on this lipstick’ fashion.

It’s Rs.500 from Nykaa, though I always find a trip to the counter in the High Street Phoenix Lifestyle store to be a fun and er, fruitful one.
