This is the worst Rimmel product I have ever tried. Here are the reasons why:
1) colors/tints/gloss do not stay, they fade within 15 minutes, I still feel the heaviness of something on my lips, but when I look in the mirror, there is zero evidence of any type of color or shine.
2) stick is horrible applicator, it is very flimsy which leads to no control and gloss getting outside of lip line.
3) on both of the glosses I purchased, the colors leak and run all over the place. I have to wrap the gloss in a fresh paper towel each time after I use it so it doesn't get all over my other makeup.
This product is total junk. I only use it for work, bc I hardly care what I look like. The only reason I keep using it is bc I don't want to be wasteful. But I will not be repurchasing.

I got this on sale for $1.86 so I'm not that disappointed that it didn't work out. WHen I put it on there is very little to no color payoff. You can also smell the SPF 15 on this gloss. It smells similar to neutrogena sunscreens. Also, it doesn't moisturize that well even thugh its called moisture renew. Overall, pretty average.

I got it in Purple Rescue, which I thought to be more fuchsia but it has too blue in it to my skin tone, so I look like a child playing with odd makeup colours, but it was my bad for this.
I can say it is supershiny but it doesn't hold a bit. Not sticky. It bleeds even with a thin coat. However it is well pigmented and not drying. If I had got a good shade I would use it up, but I wouldn't buy again.
I'll give it away.

I have this in SOS Red! I love it! You can wear a dab and get a hint of color. Or, you can apply a lot and get a strong red color! Its a little sticky, but not slimy! I found it very hydrating. It doesn't have the best staying power, but the color and texture are really amazing!

The wand is really weird; the tip kind of bends and I sometime worry it'll break!
I got SOS Red, it was a little more pink than I wanted. It really does moisturize; however, re-application is necessary and the strong color makes smudging a problem.

Aww, why all the hate? I don't think these are all that bad!
I have this in 135 Active Mauve and 525 SOS Red, though I use the latter more now as I've been hooked on sheer red lips for the past several months!
On the outside, the packaging is acceptable in quality... I don't have any outstanding pros or cons to make. Open up the tube and you will get a standard doe-foot applicator. Fine by me...until I realize how flimsy the tip is! Sometimes I feel like it's going to fall or snap off. The product definitely has a lipstick sort of scent to it, but I'm not the kind of person who usually gets bothered by synthetic, chemical-ly fragrances.
I haven't tried any of the lighter colours, but Active Mauve is sheer, with some subtle sparkle... Those with heavily pigmented lips will be disappointed. For me, it's a nice MLBB shade, despite being cool-toned. As for the SOS Red, it definitely has enough pigment to show up. I would say that for a gloss it offers sheer to medium coverage. The sparkles are a nice gold colour, again, not too flashy. I think it would work well with warm-toned girls.
Consistency-wise, the product is runnier than a typical gloss. It's smooth and non-sticky, and for that reason, it doesn't last (non-sticky and long-lasting... It's hard to have both in a gloss, eh?). I wouldn't exactly say that it's moisturizing, but I'm glad that it's not drying.
Flaws aside, I think that this is good product. Not amazing, but I'd still be happy to buy more of these!

I bought this in pink spa for £1. The colour is cute but does not go an as dark as it looks in the tube. The smell reminds me of perming solution from years ago. Its not too sticky which I like and its very easy to apply but wears away in less than an hour.
I'm happy with it because of the price I paid and Im goin gto take it away for my beach holiday but I doubt I would buy it again.

This product was a big letdown! I bought it on clearance in the shade SOS red thinking it would be a moisturizing gloss, but I was way wrong! It smells horrible, like a really fake chemical perfume scent and the texture was too thin for my liking with hardly any color payoff. I liked the large foam applicator but that was about it! The color faded and feathered on me in less than an hour, leaving my lips dry looking. Thank goodness I got this stuff for cheap because I haven't used it since the first time I tried.

I got this as a birthday present to add with all of my other lip glosses. Now in an unfortunate makeup accident, this and only some clear ones were left. I placed it on before I left and was thrilled with how it turned out.
The gloss is very creamy, not sticky at all, and is such a lovely color (I have Pink Benefit). It stayed on for about two hours and only took a light re-application to help it to return to its vibrant, yet subtle sheen. And that pink! It worked so well on my lips! I can't smell the sunscreen, mainly because I place such a light coat on. The fact that it has SPF 15, makes me smile! I burn so easily, so this is an oasis for my lips. It does moisturize, making my lips feel incredibly soft. It worked better than my tinted Baby Lips.
I honestly had to write this review because the bad reviews do not describe this lipgloss. Yes, the applicator is different, it's ment to be placed on with a light hand. This gloss is now my go to, and I will definatley buy again.

I love this lip gloss! I think it's true to it's claim that it's moisture renewing. If your lips are a tad dry (not chapped, you use carmex and serious balms for that) then this is perfect. I'm extremely pale and have it in shade Rose Cocoon. It's so creamy and got a shimmer to it. It's a great lipgloss for summer. The staying power obviously isn't that good, I'd say 20 ish minutes. But it doesn't claim to be a long-wearing lipcolor, a lot of high end lip glosses last the same amount of time! Plus they're not even as moisturizing usually. I love high end makeup and am a sephora junkie but I think drugstore lip gloss is just as good as high end, it slides off your lips in the same amount of time anyways. I have packaging a 4 because it feels a bit too cheap and too plastic-ey for even being drugstore, but it's really not an issue if you're looking for a good, cheap lipgloss!

This product is okay. I mean I got this in Pink Benefit. It's not the best color on me but decent. The fine glitter is kinda gritty so that's a minus. Didn't see much of the moisture renew going on so yeah. Didn't stay on very long, probably 20-25 minutes. Don't believe I will be repurchasing.

I have the Moisture Renew Lipgloss in 365 Pink Spa. I'm neutral about this lip gloss. The pink colour is cute & the shimmer isn't overwhelming; however, when you put it on, it's not nearly as pigmented as it shows in the tube; it's definitely not true to colour. I like that this lip gloss is creamy though.
The applicator IS kind of weird, but it's not hard to use - I don't see any reason to complain about it. I think it picks up product fine! The only real cons I have to this are the fact that it smells weird & that it doesn't last long. This lip gloss has a kind of moisturizer or sunscreen scent. I also wouldn't wear this alone. It would work well over lipstick.

One of my biggest make-up pet peeves is colorless lip gloss masquerading as actual colors. This lipgloss is ridiculous. Why do they even give them names with colors in the description? It is almost totally devoid of pigment. What is the point? The flimsy, awkward applicator barely picks up any product. It was almost as if the brand new tube was almost empty when I bought it. It felt tacky on my lips. It did nothing to make my lips more attractive. What a waste of money ( couldn't return it because the bar code was missing ). FAIL.

This lip gloss was one of the weirdest textured ones I ever bought. It has a pleasant sunscreen scent, has a nice shimmery color (in Pink Benefit) and does leave lips feeling moisturized after you remove it. However, the silicone in it gives it a weird consistency, so I melted down some Burt's Bees & added it to it & that fixed it. I really like the packaging, and the applicator, even though it has mixed reviews.

I don't know what the other reviewers are complaining about because everything they complained about it what i love about this product. I love that it's not sticky. I love that it's moisturizing; it's probably more moisturizing than my lip balms, and that's saying something. The wand is super bendy so I can paint on every little part of my lip. It doesn't have to much product on the doe shaped wand so I can get as little or as much as I want. Granted I'm not a lip gloss fan, but if I would think of a perfect lip gloss this would be the one. I mean, it has spf of 15! I know its not much, but comparing other lip glosses in spf this beats them all. I can't think anything bad about this lipgloss!

Normally I love Rimmel products. I LOVE their blushes and lipsticks, so I thought I'd give their lip glosses a go since their lip products are so good to me.
I should have read the reviews here first before purchasing. I will not be buying Rimmel's Moisture Renew lip glosses again.
It's not sticky and I like the color (I bought Pink Benefit and Purple Rescue) but the application is so annoying and difficult to master. The wand is super bendy and the doe foot applicator does not apply product evenly so you get a thin layer of color on the lips and then a thick line of lip gloss right around the edges. I have to rub the color in with my finger to get the application done right. I'm not sure if it's the packaging or the product itself, but either way, I have never had a lip gloss that was so fussy to apply.
Like I said, both of the colors themselves are good. Pink Benefit is a light shimmery pink, and the Purple Rescue is a purple berry. They look nice, and a lot more sheer than the color you see in the bottle, so don't be afraid of the bold shades. They feel moisturizing, and the smell doesn't bother me.
The finished look is good, but for all the hassle you have to go through to apply it right, only to have it not last very long? It's definitely not worth it. Find a better lip gloss that does what you expect it to do. This is not worth your money.

Beautiful colour in AWFUL packaging. The wand is so thin, cheap and bendable that it doesn't deliver sufficient product to your lips. It is a very thin, useless wand. I'm disappointed I bought this product and if you love your lipgloss and like to apply it liberally without hassle, this product will let you down like it did me.

UPDATE 10-12-2011: I overestimated these glosses. I normally don't wear glosses everyday, but I find that I never even reach for these when I want gloss. The reason why I don't wear them daily is because they are very watery. What that means is that it bleeds a bit outside of my lipline, and that is just enough to look really weird, as if I was drooling. The hydration it provides is good, but I just can't stand the big wand that takes out way too much product, which results in the drooling look. I think the packaging needs a bit of help, I like smaller brushes, like the ones on the Revlon SL glosses. (Those ones are way too gloopy, unfortunately). Overall I will not repurchase, and my rating has been lowered from 5 to 3.
Original post: I absolutely find these lipglosses amazing! I've got the Purple Rescue, SOS Red and the Fuschia Therapy one. The strong color in the tube shouldn't scare you off, since it comes out sheer on my semi-pigmented lips. I love the SOS Red one as it has a warm tone to it and it wakes up my face so nicely! The main reason why I bought these is because I saw that they had Hyaluronic Acid in them, which is amazing at hydrating the skin. It also has got vitamines A, C, and E as well as a stable sunscreen. These do feel very moisturizing on my lips and are cheaper than the Revlon Colorbust ones, which have similar properties to Rimmel's Moisture Renew. Even though the package might seems tacky to others, I find it rather eye-catching, which always makes me want to apply more gloss!! :) The applicator of this gloss definitely looks more like the NYX Diamond Sparkle glosses, as another reviewer has stated below. Overall, I love these and will keep repurchasing them!
Update: I've now gone back to the store to get more of this amazing gloss! I bought the shades Pink Perfect (salmon peachy pink) and Pink Benefit (cool tone baby pink)! Love them!!

A little mystified by the mixed reviews on this particular product. I have this in "Purple Rescue" and I rather like it-as with a reviewer below, this makes a pleasant change from the everlasting mauves, lilacs, nudes and orange-reds that are saturating the lip shade market, at the moment. When applied with a gentle hand, this lends some subtle vibrancy, sheen and conditioning to my late Summer look. In fact, used carefully and precisely, I can wear this while commuting to and fro my conservative clinical environment, as well as not be concerned about sun protection (a bonus as far as I'm concerned). Since I layer this lip gloss over the top of Labello Classic Care, the 'moisture renew' component isn't quite as important to me as it might otherwise be. The flavor/scent isn't overpoweringly offensive, either, and if you've ever had anything to do with other Rimmel products, you'll likely find that it's in-line with their product line as a whole. My only fault with this product is with the packaging: it does not strike me as being sturdy at all, either in design or execution. The outer package is flimsy, as is the applicator wand. One other, potential limitation worth mentioning, is with the seemingly small shade range, especially if you're after a non-frosty, non-glittery rose or pink. For me, "Purple Rescue" is as close as it gets.

Not worth the price! Though I have to say this does moisturize it's my night time lip product but that it never wear this outside.
I got a refund on a return and figured I had wanted to try this line of gloss from rimmel because I love the vinyl so much but I hate it. This line and the stay glossy 6 hour long wear line don't compare to my fav line.First off you get half as much product as with the vinyl variety for the same price..
I didn't find the pigment in cherry boost to be that strong esp compared to pin up fro m the vinyl line.The applicator tip can bend to this 90 degree angle making it hard to control thus getting it everywhere unless you use a lip brush.
Will not buy this line again not worth 6 dollars for me just to wear it to bed.
