Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine Lipstick Review

Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine

I’ve literally had these babies unopened for months as I haven’t been able to wear much lip products since July/August due to a pregnancy tumor that grew on my upper lip. Now that that’s sorted out, I’ve been playing around with more lippies and I’m glad I started out with these.

I recently had a second surgery on my upper lip and haven’t been able to wear lip products that are drying, but these lipsticks are so moisturizing they feel so comfortable on my still-recovering lips!

These Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine lipsticks are part of Rimmel’s Moisture Renew Lip Collection, but with a much sheerer and translucent finish. Perfect for a juicy, stained lips look!

Shades & Color Payoff

These come in six super wearable shades:


I really like the variety of colors they have in this collection; simple but there’s a perfect color everyone. My shade is definitely 200 Glow-Rious Pink and 700 Better & Brighter!

Here’s a breakdown of all the colors:

100 Woke Up Like This: Light peachy nude. Very pale and would suit fair skin really well, but looks way too pale against my light-medium skin tone.

200 Glow-Rious Pink: Rosy pink. Not surprised that this is my favorite from the range as it’s a very wearable pink – not too bold, not too pale. This color screams “spring”!

300 Pink Rules: Bright, fuschia pink. I love that it’s very sheer but also buildable to an almost-opaque intensity, so if its boldness intimidates you, you can always tone it down by only applying one sheer layer for a stained-lip look.

500 Red-Y, Set, Go!: Bright, red-orange that is very warm toned. Great pick for people with very warm under-toned skin.

600 Spin All Spring: Light peach but darker and bolder than 100 Woke Up Like This. This has a warm undertone but is a type that would suit most skin types.

700 Better & Brighter: Light brownish nude for that perfect MLBB (my lips but better) look. It looks almost transparent at first swipe but is surprisingly buildable.



These lipsticks have a very smooth and creamy formula that glide on the lips like a dream. They don’t apply patchily and don’t slide around during the day.

The finish is very shiny and glossy, but not to a point where they feel very goopy and uncomfortable. They give the lips a plumper and juicier look!



As these are sheer lipsticks, they don’t really last that long on the lips, maybe 2-3 hours tops, but I find that the bolder colors (300 Pink Rules and 500 Red-Y, Set, Go!) leave a stain on the lips that last a long time.

Although they don’t last that long, they’re so low maintenance and easy to reapply due to their sheerness. You don’t really need a mirror to apply them neatly.



They retail for AU$14 but are currently AU$7 on ASOS and AU$9.76 on Priceline.

I’m not sure if they’re available in the States but the original Moisture Renew Lipsticks retail for US$6.99 at Ulta.


Final Verdict

All in all, I’m very impressed with these lipsticks. They are sheer and don’t have excellent longevity, but the color payoff is amazing for a sheer lipstick and they’re so easy and effortless to reapply during the day – it’s practically fool-proof!

This is great for people who are starting out with makeup, but I’m sure even makeup experts would still love to have something like this in their stash for natural-makeup days.
