Rimmel London’s Kate Moss Lipstick collection was mighty popular the last time I passed a Boots counter; the nudes in particular seemed to be sold out. However I don’t think the range is Limited so there’s no rush!
Image; Kate Moss photographs so well (obviously):
I have some lip swatches for you. I haven’t done many for a while because I find it really causes flaking after a while (taking the product off and reapplying!) but this is a range I had to swatch!
These lip sticks are quite creamy and pigmented although not overly so. With 2 layers you can get a really rich colour. I can’t say the texture is phenomenal but considering the price it’s pretty good.
I have quite a golden skintone.
A nice general use red, quite flattering and not drying.
02 Hot Pink:
Nicer on than in the tube with good coverage and very wearable.
A really beige nude shade and I like this a lot even though there’s a time and place for it! Also as I am quite olive, this colour can look TOO pale on me, what can be worse than a white-ish lipstick with tan skin?! If you are lighter than me and you like nudes then you can definitely rock this kind of shade.
It’s hard to photograph and quite unforgiving on the lips. It’s a deep purple though, what da ya expect?!
05 Soft Pink:
A more natural pink in the collection and somewhat more shimmery. I imagine this will be a popular shade.
Whoops – realised too late my image of 08 is missing. Will add later!
This is sheerer than suggested in barrel and is quite flattering and pretty to wear although it might work better for the summer!
My favourites are: 01, 02 although I wouldn’t wear these that regularly and finally 08 for every day wear.
These lipsticks cost £5.49 each and were released nationwide on the 28th September 2011.
Would you try any of these shades?
