Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick

Wednesday, 30 October 2013

I've been promising a review on my new fave lipstick for a while and have mentioned it a couple of times already. You may have already spotted a sneak-peak in my outfit post or weekly roundup but I thought I'd write a full review anyway.
So I had heard a lot of hype from bloggers about the Kate Moss range by Rimmel and on my matte-lipstick-hunt last week, I stumbled across the range myself. I've been searching high and low for an orange-toned juicy red and to find this in a matte finish was the ultimate combo for me! I grabbed the final stick of shade #111 Kiss of life (I absolutely love this name by the way!) and raced home to see if my tester swatch matched up to reality. 

So in all honesty, this shade and formula was EXACTLY what I'd been looking for. #111 where have you been all my life?? Although the finish looks slightly glossy in this image, it's far more matte in real life. Lets face it, it's pretty tricky to actually find a true matte lipstick. I often find they either have a shine to them or leave your lips feeling like you've spent a night on the town with a bottle of vodka. The moisturising aspect is often forgotten in these matte lipsticks when, in reality, it's more important than in glossier formulas but Rimmel seem to have hit the nail on the head with this product. It does of course have the matte-feel (which, to me is the same as nude lips with no product) but it is not dying to the lips. In other words, I'm not itching to pile on the vaseline every few minutes. In terms of pigmentation it's very strong and a single swipe will give a solid, even colour which will last for ages! I normally reapply my lipstick constantly, purely out of habit but there's absolutely no need with this as the colour doesn't drift or fade.
Bottom line: Brilliant range of great priced lipsticks (£5.49) I'm definitely going to be investing in more!
Have you tried any of the other Kate shades?

  1. Hey :)

    I have never tried his lipstick before but it looks great on you. I usually wear Maybelline's Fatal Red which is my favourite but I've recently bought a new bourjois one from their rouge edition. They are both great lipsticks. Seen as though I have been looking for a more of an orangey red, I will go see if I can find it in Boots today :) Already written down the details.

    Great post and you look beautiful in those photos.
