7 Days of Smooches Challenge: Day 5 Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lip Colour SPF 18

Yes, I’m a bit late on this one (like a day), but with a good excuse, I swear!!  I blame my husband’s boss for this one. My poor hubby didn’t get home from work until 9 pm and I had to let the poor guy eat before assaulting him with my red lips.  Since I went high-end for Day 4 I thought I would dip into the drugstore treasure trove for Day 5.  I’ve been dying to try the Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lip Colour SPF 18 since I heard a lot of good buzz about it so I picked one up in Red Alert at my local Target. I was definitely impressed with how creamy and moisturizing the lipstick was for such a rich pigment.  I also love that it has SPF 18, which makes it ideal for every day use.  But on to the true test…

The True Test

My husband first exclaimed, “sexy” when he saw me pursing my fire engine lips into a pucker.  He changed his position post-kiss when he looked in the mirror and saw that he looked like  Ronald McDonald after a street fight (one which he miserably lost) and I didn’t look much better.  I looked like a cross between Cat Marnell and a street hooker who got roughed up by her John.  In the lipstick’s defense, we did make out a little. (too much information?)

The Verdict

We’ve got another lipstick that I absolutely loved before it went to the smooch battle.  I highly recommend this lipstick for work or for a ladies night out (as long as you don’t plan on having any random hookups) but I certainly would stay away from slicking on this bad boy for date night. I regret to say we have another 0/5 smooches.
