Are you starting to get excited about spring? I was enjoying a brief vision of the sun last week before the weather turned and released constant rain throughout the weekend, and it sort of dampened my optimism. Over the last few years, the cool and unrelentingly overcast springs of Seattle have actually given me more interest in bright lip color, which I’ve found to be really great mood-boosters.

I just wanted to say a few words about a great lipstick for that happy pop of color. The Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in As You Want Victoria is a vivid berry pink that I picked up on a whim a month or two back, and when I tried it on for the first time, it really surprised me. Rimmel isn’t messing around with pigment, here. I don’t actually wear it full strength from the tube, I generally either tap it on or blot it a couple of times.

This is a really nice lipstick. The color is strong and stains well, but the formula still feels really kind to lips. My lips are pretty sensitive and easily dried out by lipsticks, so this one is much appreciated. Above, I’ve applied it from the tube and then blotted a couple of times.

I’m also wearing a mix of L’Oreal True Match (review) and Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Luminous foundations, Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity powder (review), The Body Shop bronzer in Medium Matte, Fyrinnae blush in Nordic Angel (review), and Maybelline The Falsies mascara (review).

You can find the Rimmel lipsticks, including this shade, at Rimmel, Ulta, Walmart, and most drugstores for around $6 or $7.

Do you have any colors you reach for to lift your spirits?

    1. Thanks, Jasmine! I like that this lipstick kind of has 3 different “levels” of intensity, depending on how it’s applied. It’s handy!

    1. Nice! I’m kind of the opposite, I like bright colors but I don’t have a ton like this one. I’d love to hear how the line works for you if you give it a try! This is the only Moisture Renew lipstick I have at the moment (but that might change soon). Thanks for reading, Miss Louise!
