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).
