Rimmel Vintage Pink Lipstick VS Rimmel Colour Rush Balm in Keep Mauving

Hi guys,
Today is a little different. I am doing a versus post today with Rimmel's most famous lip products in similar shades, the Vintage Pink Moisture Renew Lipstick and Colour Rush Balm in Keep Mauving.
I heavily swatched them for you guys to see. The lighting doesn't do it justice but they really are very similar shades.
Moisture Renew Lipstick

Colour Rush Balm

Colour Rush Balm on the left and Lipstick on the right.

So onto the proceedings:

Texture            10 (Satiny and moisturising)                 8 (Feels a little greasy but a good shiny balm)
Application      9 (Easy peasy but nothing special)       8 (Scratches the balm when winding as above)
Packaging        6 (Feels a bit tacky and plasticy)          10 (Nice and informative)
Pigmentation    9 (Quite pigmented and coloured)        8 (Quite good colour but you have to build it up)
Longevity        9 (Has a great wear life, lasts for hours) 8 (Shininess rubs off v. quickly but stains well)

Totals               43/50                                                       42/50

So the Winner is .......

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick!

But only by 2 points and I would definitely recommend both.
