Rimmel London 15th Anniversary Collection by Kate

Lipstick is a girls best-friend - well probably not for some people but I do personally love me some lipstick. Rimmel London is one of the best drugstore brands with good quality lip products - especially the Kate Moss collections. As you might have seen, the 15th Anniversary Collection by Kate recently hit stores. It includes 6 new dreamy shades in this stunning rose gold packaging that I am obsessed with. All shades are have a smooth, satin finish formula. The lasting power is not that great but topping it up is no issue. 

From left to right:
53' Retro Red: A stunning burgundy red shade with a purple undertone. It is easy to apply because of the smooth texture. This one did feel quite uncomfortable after a few hours on my lips so have lip balm on hand. However, it is a pretty colour and suits all skin tones. 

54' Rock N' Roll Nude:  A sweet nude with a baby pink undertone. This nude is perfect if you have fair skin. This one is a bit hit or miss for me because sometimes I feel like it washes me out. Nonetheless it is still a pretty nude.

52' Idol Red: This one is a fire red shade. It has an orange undertone which can unfortunately make your teeth look yellow. I'm not very big on blood orange lip shades as I feel they do not suit me.

51' Muse Red: Your classic red. It has a blue undertone which makes your pearly whites shine. This one is perfect if you're after a bold red lip because the formula is super comfortable and smooth. I much prefer this one than Idol Red because it looks good on all skin tones.

55' My Nude: This nude has a slight pink undertone. It is deeper than Rock n' Roll Nude and a lot more opaque. The formula is very soft and glides on the lips smoothly. It feels comfortable on the lips however, the lasting power is not that great.  

56' Boho Nude: A nude with an apricot undertone. This one is my least favourite out of the nude shades because I don't think it suits me. Although, it would look great on a lot of people. The formula is lovely and applies full colour in one swipe. 

Overall, I think these lipsticks are lovely. The formula glides on the lips smoothly and leaves a nice, satin finish. The long lasting formula was slightly disappointing although, reapplying lipstick is not a problem for me. I found the darker/bold shades to almost flake off my lips which was irritating as it made it feel uncomfortable. Nonetheless, the opaqueness makes up for it.

Love always,
