    Rimmel's new lipsticks!

    Walgreen's is having a nice 50% off on all Rimmel cosmetics this week so I was wondering if their new Moisture-renewel (correct name?) have that funky smell going on like their normal line of lipsticks? I would love to try a couple of them, but that smell/taste is pretty unappealing IMO! TIA<3
