Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks have been huge in the blogging world the past couple of months or so, and I was lucky enough to win one in the lovely Sophia's giveaway (you can find her fabulous blog here) before Christmas - the perfect time to experiment with wine and berry colours on the lips. The shade '107' has been a sell out in most Boots stores, and is has proven rather difficult to find online just recently too, so I was excited to discover what all of the hype has been about and felt rather lucky indeed to add this little beauty in my collection.
Matte lipsticks don't usually float my boat, if I'm honest. I don't have particularly dry lips but I struggle to find a suitable one because I'm so fussy about how they feel and I usually opt for a 'buttery' finish. This is just not the case with this lipstick - it's just spot on for a matte finish and one that is so unbelievably wearable. It doesn't feel drying, it doesn't drag when applied and it has a velvety feel to it that just makes it an absolute dream to wear. So much so, I cannot wait to head out to Boots and grab myself a few more shades from the range. It even smells beautiful - almost like watermelons.. which is a lovely fruity bonus if I don't say so myself!
I've used a Barry M lip liner to get the defined look in the photographs above, but to be honest you could probably get away without using one if you're very careful with application (i have a post on the lipliners here). It smooths on effortlessly and just one coat provides opaque colour - It really defines the lips and creates an intense, 'vampy' look that's right on trend for the current season. It definitely glams up my every day makeup and almost makes my lips appear fuller than they are (Angelina Jolie I am not!) Usually with dark colours I find they bleed or smudge off slightly, but this one has impressive staying power. Needless to say, I've fallen in love with this lipstick and I cannot wait to hop in the car and get myself to Boots so I can hunt down some more from the range! If you're like me and tend to be put off with matte finishes, I urge you to give these a whirl.. they might just change your mind.
