Rimmel Moisture Renew Cream Lipgloss: My New Love

Hello Divas!

I normally don't like to try out new lip glosses because of the disappointment that I have had with many of them.

I recently decided to try out Rimmel Moisture Renew lipgloss because I wanted a little bit of a change and it is getting harder to find my L'Oreal lipgloss in the raspberry shade that I love so much.

I tend to shy away from 'cream' glosses because they conjure images of old ladies wearing frosty shades but then I saw the lip gloss in SOS Red and scooped it up.

When I got home I immediately tried this on over my regular lip balm and was amazed by how smoothly it went on. I then tried it without lip balm because I figured it should be smooth if it is a cream formula....I was NOT disappointed.

The gloss went on as smoothly and thinly as if I had lip balm on which makes it perfect for days when I don't have anything to layer under it.

It did not have a strong scent like so many cream formulas tend to have and even though it comes with SPF 15 I could not smell the sunscreen at all.

I have read some reviews that said it tastes great but to me there is no taste at all. I would have liked if it had some kind of fruity flavor because now it is just boring.

The color goes on sheer but pretty so that it does not look like you are wearing make up...just that you have fabulously juicy lips.

I will definitely be trying out other colors in this line in the future!!!!

The one thing I will say that I do not like about it is that the color dries out very quickly and the color fades in about one hour so you need to keep reapplying to keep it looking vibrant.

Took Some Time Off To Refocus

I have been going through some issues in my life lately that have been causing me to really neglect the blog.

I just realized that it has been a LONG time since my last post...but I needed to take some time off to refocus. I will be getting back to a regular posting schedule soon...just bear with me.
