Kate Moss and Rimmel London? Yes please!
Yeap, you heard right - the ultimate London Girl and the edgy London make up brand are collaborating to bring hip and cool to a whole new level. This is Moss' first time developing her very own lipstick range, exclusively for Rimmel.
Introducing you the brand new Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick Collection.
I have been a fan of Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipsticks for a while (as can seen by my review/ swatches HERE). The formula is amazing - creamy and pigmented and it costs a fraction of the price of departmental lipsticks. Miss Moss gives the traditional Lasting Finish Lipstick a sensational twist, infusing it with her own inimitable touch of fashion and oh-so-effortless glamour.
Kate Moss' new collection is now infused with the Black Diamond - the unique extraordinary light-reflecting properties and adds depth and intensity in every shade.
Putting all her experience on the runway, in the studio and on the red carpet into her collaboration with Rimmel, she created 9 stunning shades exclusively for the Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick Collection.
"My inspiration for this range was really to create a range of easy to wear, classic shades that I have always worn and loved. From bright reds, to soft pinks and nudes, there is a shade for everyone and any occasion. It was also really important for me that they were also comfortable to wear. Whatever your outfit there is sure to be a shade to match" Kate Moss on her new collection.
I was lucky enough to be surprised with 4 of the Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick Collection at the office almost a month and a half ago, courtesy of Coty PR.
The 4 gorgeous colours that were sent to me: L-R - #15, #11, #12, #05
Lets move on to the swatches and reviews, shall we?
#12 is an orangey - coral shade, which definitely has the WOW factor! This is probably my favourite of all - the perfect spring/summer shade! Just wear this with a simple & natural EOTD or even just mascara and you are good to go! This colour is perfect to brighten up your mood when you are going through Monday Blues (which is pretty much weekly) or when you are having a shit day. Trust me, a bold and bright lipstick helps.
#05 is a warm, strawberry pink shade, which is suitable for day-to-day wear. I adore this colour too, maybe just not as much as I do with #12. I tend to reach for #05 when I am feeling more conservative and am looking to go for the more "natural" look that doesn't scream "LOOK HERE".
#11 is a stunning vampy red colour, which I think every girl should have in her collection, albeit I have a little confession here to make. I wasn't really fond on this colour when I first opened it as I am more of a bloody red girl when it comes to the red department. I can see myself reaching out for this colour more often in the future!
#15 is more of a sheer formula, a brownish shade with maroon undertone and speckles and my least favourite out of the loot. The lip swatch above took me 3 swatches before it is somewhat opaque. I would only recommend this shade if you are looking for something really different to add to your collection.
WHAT DO I THINK :
First up, definitely kudos to the range of colours offered, especially the super bright and vibrant ones. The formula is creamy and pigmented, which is triple (or quadruple) the brownie points as those were the key things I look into when rating a lipstick. Creamy because my lips is probably dryer than the Sahara desert and pigmented because I love super bright and vibrant colours (who doesn't?) As the name suggests, this formula is pretty long lasting - you're looking at around 4 hours. It lasted me through brekkie, coffee and morning tea. The colour on the centre of my lips did start to fade after morning tea and they are usually pretty vague by lunch time.
As you can tell from the picture above, the packaging for Kate Moss Lasting Finish Collection is nothing but sleek and chic. The packaging most certainly doesn't feel like cheap plastic and I absolutely adore Kate's "signature" printed in red.
At only $11.95 each, I don't think there's anything more to complain about the pricing. One MAC lipstick = 3 of these gorgeous babies. :P It's definitely worth every penny for the stunning colour and quality!
