Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipgloss in Pink Protect
Sweet holy hydration, Batman! According to the folks at Rimmel, their new Moisture Renew Lipglosses ($6 each; available in 14 shades) reduce dryness up to 95%. That’s a lotta hydration, and lawd knows my lips need it, but seriously, how do they come up with these numbers? Why not say 97%? And doesn’t “up to 95%” also include zero? But I digress…
Getting down to brass tacks, I do think Renew, which I’ve tried in Pink Protect, feels fantastic on my lips. Its light and smooth non-sticky texture certainly doesn’t dry out my lips, and that’s a definite plus.
The new line launched earlier this spring on the heels of last year’s fantastic Moisture Renew Lipsticks. Like those lippies, these catch and reflect sunlight like my favorite pair of aviator sunglasses, and with the addition of SPF 15, they’re not a bad deal for $6 each (although I do think they have quite a bit of competition at that price point).
Being glosses, they don’t last nearly as long as the lipsticks do; I only get about an hour of wear time from them, and that’s not even long for a gloss.
I’m not crazy about the scent and flavor either, which reminds me of plastic flowers. Eww…
Moisture Renew Lipgloss does get points for a comfy texture and the inclusion of SPF 15, but as far as drugstore glosses go, I think I prefer Sally Hansen’s 12-Hour Lip Treatments.

This one’s for my fellow pet lovahs
Good day, friend. How was your evening? After dinner (improv soup with veggie broth, chopped garlic, basil, brown rice, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes and carrots), I watched the new ep of Being Human and read until midnight. Then, I spent the remainder of my night tossing and turning. Yay, insomnia…
Tabs, of course, was thrilled, because it meant he had company for the evening (it was nothin’ but a West Coast party!)
Speaking of Tabs, check out Cat Vs. Human when you get a chance. Reader Ana sent me a link to it last weekend. HELLA FUNNY! It’s a blog run by a gal named Yasmine who draws cartoons about her pets (she has three cats and a dog).
You have a great Tuesday, okay?
