I’ve been a big fan of Rimmel and the Kate Moss collections for a while and have previously picked up the matte lipstick in 110, which is a gorgeous bright coral colour.
M is also a big fan and has been telling me for AGES to pick up a darker lipstick. I’m super pale with dark hair and the vampy look is something I’ve always wanted to try out but never been brave enough.
I think celebs like Megan Fox who wear this kind of look always look amazing, I mean who wouldn’t want to look like this??
I’ve warmed up to the idea so much after seeing so many good reviews and so I picked up the Lasting Finish Lipstick in the Kate Moss range in 107.
The 107 lipstick is infamous with bloggers, recently Tanya Burr has done a tutorial for Rihanna and Megan Fox inspired make up and used this very lipstick. This confirmed for me that if i want to try the darker lipstick look buying a Rimmel lipstick wasn’t going to break the bank at £5.49.
The bullet looks so dark it scared me a lot. I never used to be a lipstick person at all and now find myself with at least 20!
It was only a matter of time really before I tried a colour like this I suppose.
The colour came out exactly how I thought it would but it surprised me how much it suited me, I thought it might have looked a little bit weird but it actually didn’t.
I like the finish from this lipstick, its matte but not overly so and that makes it a lot more wearable.
It stains your lips too so as the lipstick wears off the colour doesn’t.
However as the lipsticks are matte they are somewhat drying. This annoys me as for day wear I have to apply lip balm in between to stop my lips from peeling which isn’t always resolved with lip balm.
However for a night out it’s perfect and I can’t fault it.
I’ve worn it out a few times now with a black dress and heels and for an evening at the theatre in jeans and a blazer. It’s so much more wearable than i thought and I can’t wait to wear it again.
What do you think of darker lipsticks? Which is your favourite?
I’m going to have to get some more in the future!
