Review: Kate Moss for Rimmel Matte Lipstick Collection with Swatches

When I saw the advert for these lipsticks I knew straight away I had to have shade 107  a gorgeous plum shade perfect for Autumn winter. I loved the shades of her previous collection so when I went to pick it up I picked up the nude shade 113. Somehow I have no will power and recently picked up the other 3 too. 

They are all gorgeous shades and I love the bright red packaging with the black accents on. These lipsticks are all matte. They apply well with very strong pigmentation.

The whole collection provides a colour for everyone. From nudes to reds to plums. They are a little drying but with a matte lipstick I don’t expect much else. They last well, look amazing on the lips and are very reasonably priced. Both Superdrug and Boots have these on offer at the moment on 3 for 2 or buy one get on half price. Here’s the link for boots.

Shade 101 is a gorgeous baby pink. It is a soft shade that doesn’t look to pale or to barbie on the lips. This is a very wearable day shade. I find myself reaching for this a lot as it’s so easy to wear with any look. It reminds me of an affordable matte version of Mac Angel (you can see my review here)

As soon as I saw this shade 113 I wanted it. It’s a toffee nude shade that is perfect for pairing with a smokey eye. When I saw it I was instantly reminded of my current girl crush Mila Kunis (eye inspired look here) I do find sometimes it reminds me a little of a concealer lip so I’ve been reaching for lip gloss to put over the top. Lately I’m loving a bit of lip gloss which I never though I would. It does annoy me when my hair blows in it though. Any tips on how to cope with gloss I’d love. The other day a fly actually got stuck to my lip. Not a good look!

Shade 110 was one L picked up before me. I wasn’t sure if it would be too orangey on me but I actually really like it. It’s a coral red orange shade. It’s quite bright but does look really nice on. The red tone to it makes it much more wearable on my skin tone.

Shade 111 randomly is named one mine. I’m not sure why this one is and the others aren’t. This is a true piller box red. Excuse my messy application. This is a lipstick that could do with a lip liner prior to application. I think this will replace my current red favourite Diva Red by Rimmel. I love a red lip. When I wear it through the day I feel like a power women. I love it.

Last but by no means least shade 107. A beautiful deep plum shade. This is perfect winter berry shade. I love wearing dark colours through the colder months. Even though I’m pale I personally think they look ok on. I try to wear a subtle eye though so it’s not to much.

I really like all the shade in this collection and think they will all be worn a lot. Have you picked up any of them yet? Do you mind a matte lip? For a gorgeous colour I’m more than happy to put on a little lip balm. 

Love M

    I have 101 and agree, it's not too Barbie pink and it's so wearable! The plum shade 107 looks lovely on you, darker colours scare me though!xx
