So if you happened to check out my swatches & review of the original Kate Moss line for Rimmel (the ones in the black tube) then you know I’m a huge fan! Our partners across the pond had these ages before us & they actually have access to more shades…but I snapped up all of the shades availible at my CVS! There are 5 total so stay tuned for thoughts!
The packaging on these is identical to the original lipsticks except a nice shade of red. The top is slanted with the Rimmel crown icon & signed by Kate Moss in black. They are your usual twist up tube.
The shades each have a number rather than a name. While I prefer names, I love that these have the same shades on the stickers so you don’t have to open each tube to remember the names. I think these look quite a bit more expensive that the below $5 price tag.
Like I had said before, there were more shades available in other countries. I feel like we didn’t get as much variety but I still like these shades. These are matte lipsticks & long wearing without being harsh or too drying. Like all other matte shades, you need to start with a clean lip base. I usually exfoliate then apply lip balm before my makeup routine. When I’m done, I blot it off & use that as a smooth canvas. I’ll break each of the shades down below!
101- Light cool toned pink. This is the perfect light pink lip that isn’t too light which makes it more wearable.
103- Medium cool pink. Love this, perfect go to pink shade.
104- Dusty rose pink. I love dusty rose type shades year round so this is great!
109- Bright orange coral. I love oranges so this is a great addition, can’t wait till spring!
113- Very light yellow/creamsicle toned nude. This one is SO hard for me to pull off because I’m so cool toned. I think this will be perfect as a concealer shade to lighten my lips & make other colors pop!
What do you guys think of these shades? I wish there had been a purple or red, I would love to see a matte version from them! If you love matte lippies, the price is way afforadable & I’m hoping these will be moved to permanent status in the drugstore!
