Rimmel London Lasting Finish Kate Moss Lipstick in 01

I love it! Love it, love it, love it!

I have only recently been experimenting with red lipsticks, as I am more of a natural and nude girl myself. However, I am having tonnes of fun delving into the unknown and trying out some new things.
I recently did a post on a lip tint and a lip pencil that I liked which created a strong and powerful red lip, but I think it might be time to say step aside to those products because there is a new girl in town!

Rimmel London released a new selection of Lipsticks designed by Kate Moss. All of the ones in the collection have a little signature by Kate on the lipstick tube. There is a variety of reds and pinks in the collection, however I decided to pick the most classic, hard to pull off colour. Because, obviously I would *Rolls eyes*

The product actually smells like sweets. I kid you not, the lipstick smells like a strawberry chewy sweet I had as a kid that I can't put my finger on (If you have it and know what i'm on about please comment below). This however, is no lipstick to be messed about with. The intense colour is the most perfect classic blood red. It slips on like a dream, which can be rather annoying if you're not so good at colouring in the lines. If you do make any mistakes though, just grab a red lipliner and do some patchwork :)

It does feel slightly drying I will admit. Although it doesn't seem to actually cause my lips to dry out literally, it just gives the feeling, although this doesn't bother me too much as its not uncomfortable. You can always wack some vaseline on over the top. It does have a slight sheen on its own but the more you blot, the more matte the colour gets.

To test out how much it would fade, I wore this lipstick whilst I was eating and drinking and I would say you wouldn't tend to go longer than the 4 hours without doing some touch ups.

Overall, personally, I love it! I don't mind having to reapply it so much. And it is no where near as drying as other lipsticks that I have tried. It is excellently pigmented and it doesn't break the bank. What's not to love?


  1. This looks like the most perfect red lip colour! It suits you so well. Is it bad that I was drawn in by the strawberry sweet smell!?! Is it anything like those chewits/fruitella sweets? Mmm.

    1. Thanks :) Haha, not at all. No it smells more like the cherry sweets from haribo now i think of it.. but not quite. Really cant put my finger on it. You're going to have to go smell it! lol xxo
