Lipstick: Rimmel by Kate

^ From left: 113, 26 and 03

I only got into lipsticks recently, I was never a fan probably because I couldn't find a perfect one that I could just use over and over again. But I decided to get out of my comfort zone and give the Rimmel by Kate collection a go since I've heard so many good things about it. Plus they were on 3 for 2 offer in Boots at the time (£5.49 each it was I think) so not a bad price. I went for nude shades because they are my favourite.
First I tried the lipstick in 113, from the red collection and unfortunately it put me off straight away, it did look nice when I swatched it in store but once I used it on my lips it just looked dry and unhealthy even. The lipstick is not pigmented enough and smells a bit too much like plastic to me. I didn't expect a lot from the black collection after this, so when I tried them on I was very surprised. They are nicely pigmented, don't crack on the lips after a few seconds like the red one does and they smell a lot nicer too for some reason. I don't know why there is so many differences between the two, but I'm glad that the black collection turned out the way it did, not all money wasted afterall. I have to say I like he black packaging more too, with a nice touch of red or pink Kate signature rather thank red and black but that's probably just me. It's still not something I would use every day because the lipsticks need constant re-applying, but I do like the black collection and will use the product from time to time. You can't really complain for the price either, 5 or 6 quid is not much for a lipstick and Rimmel is a great brand.

  14. The red ones are the matte range and so they do tend to feel a bit more dry, I don't really get on with them that well either. I have quite a few Kate Moss lipsticks but I don't own any of the nudes so this was a very interesting post to read x

  15. I havent tried the black collection yet, I have shade 101 from the red collection and it's a nice colour but so difficult to wear. Because they're so matte they show up all dryness and imperfections which is annoying. I'll definitely keep an eye out for 26 and 03, great review x

  22. Really great review! I normally steer clear of nude lipsticks and head straight for the brights, but I think you may have swayed me and I'll definitely be checking these out in store! Great blog xx

  28. I wonder if the US and UK versions of this are different? My 113 seems much lighter in person, and smells like Nerds (it's a candy- do you have it there, too?). I've noticed Rimmel does wear off very quickly, though. Even the deep reds I've bought. It's the perfect red. It actually appears red on me instead of turning pink or brownish on me... and it wears off in about ten minutes. x.x
