Rimmel Moisture Renew 'Notting Hill Nude'

I was switching up my bag for more winter appropriate one and at the bottom I found this new Rimmel reformulated lipstick in 'Notting Hill Nude' (moisture renew number 720):

It`s such a beautiful nude which is not concealer-like and erasing lips from the face. Not too pale pink, too brown, too orange. On light skintones this shade appears more of the brownish side, doesn`t wash out while for deeper skintones it`s more of a pink/coral but both ways really slightly. So it`s an universal colour, neutral so will suit many different skin tones.
The texture is creamy, has a natural shiny finish (reminds me of a lip balm), gives medium colour pay off, very moisturising so great for dry lips. It doesn`t smudge, stays in place but it`s not very long lasting. I tend to reapply it in every 2 hours.
I would use with along with dark smokey eyes when I don`t want any colour but defined natural looking lips.

Here it is in the natural evening light:

    I have this (it was a bargain!) and I absolutely love it. The formula is so nice and creamy but it doesn't highlight any dry patches which is so good! And the colour is just gorgeous, my go-to brown-pink nude!

  3. I've heard of this from other bloggers and it looks right up my alley! Unfortunately they don't sell Rimmel where I live so I'll have to wait to get my hands on it.
