As many of you probably already know (especially if you follow me on Instagram) my must-have make-up is definitely lipstick! For at least ten years now I have been totally addicted to mac lipsticks, mainly the one and only brave. As promised in my September Favourites post, here is my review on the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss. I have mentioned before that I was keen to try a red pout to challenge my usual neutral or fairly nude lips. I came across these Rimmel lipsticks in Boots and I was instantly attracted to the packaging.
I love Kate Moss’s signature on the cap with the Rimmel crown logo, giving it a very ‘London look.’ The packaging along with the lipstick itself really captures the timeless edge of Kate’s unique look. The first shade I tried was the obvious choice of rich red (107) I wore it for a night out and I didn’t have to re-apply once! I loved the colour, it looks so on trend and the matte finish gives the lips a more ‘berry stained look’ with a velvet finish rather than a lustre finish.
I then went out to purchase a couple more shades as I was so impressed with the red. I bought 05 which is a lovely pinky tone, it could easily be an everyday colour but I would wear it for a day or night out. I also bought 08 which now lives in my handbag, it’s a great duplicate for my ‘brave’ by mac and it’s such a lovely everyday colour. It does have more of a glossy finish compared to mac’s brave which is quite matte but for under £6 it is great! The second two lipsticks I bought are not matte like the red so I feel I do need to re-apply more.
Overall, I am so impressed with these lipsticks and have learnt that I do need to venture out from mac when it comes to trying new shades. I still love mac lipsticks but I am definitely going to buy yet even more Kate Moss for Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks.. I will stick to the matte finish ones for me though ♥
