Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick – MAC Rebel Dupe

Hey ladies!

A quick review to you today of the lipstick I mentioned in my recent OOTD post – the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Dark Night Waterl-oops.

This is without a doubt my new favourite Winter lipstick shade. I scoured Boots for ages looking for the perfect bitten, sexy berry stain and was sold as soon as I swatched this on my hand I was sold. I don’t actually have MAC Rebel, but from swatched I’ve seen online, this shade is very close to it, and for half the price who can complain at that!

I was really impressed by the revamped Moisture Renew Range. I must confess I hadn’t paid much attention to them before but I am enjoying the new packaging and colour range, as well as the cute new names for everything! This lipstick has a very creamy texture and glides onto the lips smoothly and is opaque pretty much as soon as you slick it on which I love – no fans of sheer textures on this blog! I would say that because it is so creamy you are better off using a lipliner with it, as I have found this can bleed a little, which is no biggie for me but I know it can annoy others. This lipstick has pretty average staying power, it will pretty much last on me until I decide to eat or drink something, so no staining but again, this doesn’t really bother me. I don’t find it too drying which is a major plus in this weather as well. The packaging is pretty and functional and has a nice clicking action which means I have no worries about it unlocking in my bag.


I can’t get over the colour! It is just gorgeous and I would highly recommend it if you want a dark, deep, sexy winter lip colour.
