Even if you are not a fan of Kate Moss, you got to admit that she has a certain ageless appeal. If her line for Rimmel is anything to go by she has great taste in makeup ! Sadly only the mascara and lipstick lines are available in Dubai (I hope her amazing eye shadow sticks and gel liner’s will be launched here soon !) .
Her lipstick line has some great colors and is of amazing quality. I have quite a few shades from the collection but these two are my favorite shades for spring/summer.
The shade 05 (black tube) looks a muted pink in the tube but goes on warm fuchsia and the shade 109 (red tube) is a very flattering subtle coral shade. I have quite dry lips so I use these over a little lip balm and this helps the lipstick to glide smoothly and evenly. I find that one coat is more than enough and leaves my lips saturated in color. Even though the finish is supposed to be matte, it leaves a slight sheen. But you can blot it out with a tissue to make it more matte.
Fair warning, this formula might bleed in to your lip lines so wear it with a lip liner. I prefer to use the Rimmel Moisture Renew Clear lip liner. It’s a colorless lip liner that forms a waxy barrier around your lips and is great for bright colors like these.
Wear time is 3-4 hours depending on what I eat or drink. Greasy food like french fries has the ability to remove lip color better than a makeup remover !
Most of the time I prefer to lightly tap the color over my lips so I am left with a stained lip. But two or three layers will give you a traffic stopping bright lip. I wear it either way depending on my mood.
If you are curious about experimenting with bright lip shades but don’t want to spend a load of cash, go to the nearest Rimmel counter and take a peak. The range of shades available will blow your mind( plus they have launched 4 new shades for spring).
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick costs 42AED (5.49Pounds) and is available at all Rimmel counters in the U.A.E.
At the moment, Rimmel is offering a free lip liner with every purchase of Kate Moss lipstick (red tube) and If you hurry you might be able snatch it.
What are your favorite lip colors for summer ? Do you wear brights or muted nude shades ?
