Rimmel By Kate Nude Collection Lipsticks - 40, 43 & 45

Hi!

I saw someone snap about these lipsticks the other day (possibly Beauty Nook) and made a mental note to "have a look" the next time I was in Boots. As luck would have it, two days later I found myself in front of a pretty well-stocked Rimmel stand and spotted the lipsticks. There were just three out of a possible five on display, so I did what any self-respecting blogger would do and bought the three of them.




The three shades I picked up are 40 (Pale Nude), 43 (Tan Nude) and 45 (Rose Nude). The ones I couldn't find are 42 (Apricot Nude) and 48 (Dark Nude).

I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you that I am not a fan of Kate Moss, and therefore pretend that these are from a Kate Middleton collection. That needs to happen, makeup Gods. Stat.

Here are swatches of all three:




I'm not gone on the colour of #40 at all. It's too pale on me, and it was really pigmented and creamy - not usually an issue, but I had to blot several times before I was happy with it. Ain't nobody got time for that. My favourite by a country mile was #45 - it's a colour I always go for, but I know what I like and THIS IS IT. I could take or leave #43, it was nice and I had no issues.

Rimmel lipstick is usually fantastic anyway, I've only ever had problems with some of the Matte Kate ones but that's down to my dry cats-arse lips rather than the lipstick. These lipsticks are currently priced at €6.99 each, and they're on offer at the moment at Boots - buy one get one half price (applies across the whole Rimmel range).

  1. They look a lot different on than they do in the tube, and are all quite pink! From these pictures I think 40 looks great on you! 45 would be my fave from this lot too - but seriously your eyeshadow is FAB - what is it!!

    1. They definitely lean very pink on me, I'm sure they'd be different over a liner but thank you! The eyeshadow is from the Sleek Oh So Special palette x

  2. I picked up 40 and 45 too. 43 was the only other one in stock but I avoided it as I thought it was a weird brown-orange nude. I've been wearing 45 the past two days and I love it! It's just such a pretty colour!

    1. 45 is definitely the winner of the three, I don't think I'll be wearing 40 again!

  8. 45 definitely looked like the best shade when I swatched them in Boots but I didn't go for it and then subsequently discovered the perfect nude shade elsewhere so I'm glad I didn't bother! Great eyeshadow you're rocking there by the way!

  9. I agree with everyone here, 45 looks the most wearable. Not a fan of Moss either but I do love Rimmel, so I won't hold it against them! Lovely pix by the way - love that new set-up x

    1. It's amazing what you can do with a blanket and a high chair :D I was trying to chase the light in the kitchen! 45 seems to be a winner all round :)x

  10. Aww I'm quite disappointed seeing this. I love Rimmel, and have loved most of their (& Kate's) lipsticks. I will probably go pick up #45 anyway, but I'm glad I saw this before purchasing! x
