Rimmel Lipsticks - Pink & Purple 'Queen' Sisters

I call these lipsticks the 'Queen Sisters' and you'll know why when you see the pics :D I so loved the glossy glam packaging that I couldn't stop with one. It was hard for me to decide between a pink and a purple !! and also for the reason we don't get Rimmel here I grabbed two of these lipsticks. One is Moisture Renew and the other is Color Show Off Lipstick.


Moisture Renew Lipstick - Amethyst Shimmer 260

Well, there is no shimmer in the lipstick and the color is a pretty good rose color. As the name suggests, the lip stick is quite moisturizing and feels good on lips. The lipstick is well pigmented so I am loving it.

Color Show Off Lipstick - Love Me 130

The color of both the lipsticks are almost similar, you can see them in the swatches. It is very hard to differentiate the color. The Color Show Off Lipstick is not as moisturizing as the Moisture Renew Ones and it is a bit drying on lips :p


  • I love how pigmented these lipsticks are.
  • The color is a pretty rose and very wearable.
  • Packaging is to die for, glossy and glam.
  • No strong fragrance.
  • Stays on for good 4 hours on my lips after which it fades slowly.
  • I like their names.

  • The color show off lipstick is a bit drying on my lips :(
  • Availability  !!


The cost of Rimmel Color Show Off Lipstick [Love Me]- AED 39 - Rs.475 (approx) for 4 g.
The cost of Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick [Amethyst Shimmer] - AED 41 - Rs.500 (approx) for 4 g.

Sorry for the difference in the color, it is because of the difference in lighting :p


Since the colors are similar I like both but when it comes to the quality I like Moisture Renew better than Color Show Off. If you haven't tried Rimmel lipsticks so far, do give them a try and it has all good reasons to find a permanent place in your vanity.
