Mini Review: Kate Moss Rimmel Lipstick

9/13/12

As I was strolling through the beauty aisles at my friendly neighbourhood (well not my neighbourhood but my friends') drugstore. I spotted Rimmel lipsticks, by Kate Moss, on sale for 5$. Now usually the whole oh-my-gosh-a-celebrity-made-it doesn't get me excited (except for the Lady Gaga perfume, black liquid?! so cool!) but when I saw the beautiful bright pink with a hint of coral lipstick it was love at first sight. I knew then it just had to come home with me. 
And so it did, and we're living quite happily ever after.

Top to Bottom: MAC Chatterbox, NYX Louisiana, Kate Moss Rimmel 06

It's a beautiful bright coral-pink lipstick. A lot brighter than either Chatterbox or Louisiana. 

Pigmentation: Amazing, it's so damn bold and with one swipe on the lips the colour payoff is great.
Packaging: The kate moss red signature with the black bullet is nice. I usually don't like Rimmel's eggplant-ey (aubergine-y) sheen, but the matte black is great. 
Wear: It's amazing, it just sticks on your lips; it didn't come off until I started eating. Beware though, it doesn't come off easy but it will leave a ring (as if you're wearing lipliner) on the edges of your lips. 
Texture: The texture is my only problem. It's not moisturizing and you definitely need to apply a light balm underneath, or even exfoliate if you have super dry lips. It can be drying, so again if you have dry lips it may not be for you. 
Price: I got it for 5$ on sale! I don't think it's over 9$ CAD though. Great price for such a good pigmented lippie. 

Would I repurchase? If I ever run out, yes. If I see another colour I like from this line, I would probably purchase it.

Have you ladies tried the Kate Moss by Rimmel lipstick line? 
Would you like to see a look with this lippie?
Thanks for reading and I always love hearing your thoughts :)
