Swatched: Kate Moss' Lipstick Collection for Rimmel

The brand new Rimmel Lipstick Collection by Kate Moss has been causing quite a stir online over the last few weeks. Today I finally got the chance to swatch the shades in person and thought you might like to see?!

If you haven't caught a glimpse of the collection yet... feast your eyes!

From left: Shades 1,2,3,4,5,8,12

The seven shades have been hand chosen by Kate herself and in my opinion, are the perfect shades to cover you for every eventuality.

You've got three play-it-safe daytime shades: a perfect not-too-pale nude (3) , a more mauvey, rose-nude (8) and a brighter, medium pink (5). Then you've got a classic red (1), a coral red (12) and a bright fuchsia pink (2) for a more daring look. Finally (for the most daring amongst us!) a deep gothic plum-purple shade (4)... gorgeous!

As with all Rimmel lipsticks, they smell delicious and fruity. The formulation is creamy and very nicely  pigmented, leaving a pretty satin finish to the lips. The wear isn't amazing, but about average for comparable products. The packaging is sleek, matte black emblazoned with Kate Moss's signature and a little hand drawn heart.

My must have shades from the collection would be 3 (the nude), 8 (the mauve nude) and 2 (the fuschia). 


Overall, I'm really blown away by this collection. I've always loved the formulation of Rimmel's lipsticks but have been disappointed with the shade selection, but there isn't a single 'bad colour' here, which is very unusual amongst high street collections... Kate chose well!

The Kate Moss lipstick collection will be available from Boots stores nationwide today, and all other stockists from 28th September, priced at £5.49

  15. These look gorgeous! I've never been a huge fan of Rimmel lipsticks for the same reason- I think they're shade range sucks. But definitely checking these out, I have my eye on 1,2,3,5 and 8. Heck I might as well just them all and make it a nice set :D

  40. Ooo.. 3, 8 and 12 really catch my eye. This collection reminds me a bit of Australis's latest line of lipsticks which had a purple and orange in it as well. Going by your swatches though, these look better pimented, more true to colour and have nicer finishes. That and I preferthe smell of Rimmel lipsticks. I've only ever had one before, Pink BLush, from their permanent lines. I went on a mad hunt for airy fairy but apparently it's been discontinued in every store I can get to. Can't wait to get my hands on these though.

  43. I have No1...The wear is terrible, i applied it around 5 times on my night out..and it did bleed off my lip but i LOVED the colour...hmm.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I didn't have a problem with the wear, it lasted longer than my mac lipsticks, I loove the color of 1, the only red shade i can wear confidently.

    ReplyDelete
  45. They finally made it over to the US - minus the two shades I wanted, 2 and 3. GRRRRR! Those are the two best in my opinion!

  46. Love this.Love The Red Lipstick.Fabulous.keep posting.

  47. Fleur, do you know if there are only 7 shades? I'm in Canada and at my local drugstore I saw only 5 shades which were different from the ones you have here : 02, 03, 05, 09 and 10.. I've tried to do some research but no one seems to have the same 7 shades depending on where they live.. I was curious to know the full range of shades as i'm a bit of a makeup OCD :)

  48. I've already bought the purple 'gothic' one (04) and its so nice but I find it wears of quickly

    ReplyDelete
  49. can you do a video showing these on you pleasee?xxxxxx

    ReplyDelete
  50. Gorgeous, gorgeous line! These are great colors, but am a huge fan of the red line. In love with the 107 color at the moment - plus the price can't be beaten! Will have to try out these other shades, as well.
