Recently Rimmel have released a new line of Kate Moss lipsticks, this time in matte finishes. The range consists of five different lipsticks in both nudes, brights and deep vampy shades for AW12. The formula is enriched with ruby powder (?!) to ensure the matte finish holds all day as well as providing intense colour payoff.
#101 is a pale powder pink which is pretty inoffensive and I can see it being one of the most popular shades in the range. I have quite pigmented lips so I think this would look a lot better applied after using a tiny bit of foundation.
#107 is THE most Autumn/Winter shade from the line. It's a gorgeous deep berry that I would think should suit most skin tones considering I didn't think it would look that great on me but I actually really like it!
#110 appears to be a bright, juicy red with almost a hint of pink to me. Not terribly Autumnal, but a shade that I think would look killer with an all-black outfit on a night out, and will definitely be wearable when Spring makes its return.
#111 is a classic medium red and is beautiful, although quite safe because of this. Another surefire hit on the stands as it's such a signature shade. I'm not being negative about this one at all though, it's a lovely colour for sure!
#113 is a pale nude shade, and probably my least favourite just because it makes me look so washed out. Might just need to up the bronzer and blush with this one and I have no doubt this is going to be a popular one.
Overall I think these are a great bunch of matte lipsticks, especially for the high street. The finish is velvet matte so it wears really comfortably and the formula isn't too drying at all. The lipsticks actually kind of feel like Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse (who remembers that?! Old schooool!) on the lips, which is strange but probably explains why they glide on the lips so well. The price is pretty spot on I think, perfect for those looking to dabble in the world of matte lipsticks but not wanting to break the bank! Have you tried any of these? Do you like matte formulas?
