This season, Kate Moss has expanded her current lipstick collection with Rimmel to include 5 new Nude shades that are intended to be ‘shades for all’.
With a promised 8hr lasting finish, let’s take a look more closely at two shades….
Sporting the same sickly synthetic flavour of the rest of the lipstick line, the new Nude shades glide on the lips effortlessly and feel very comfortable. Both moisturising and with a slight gloss finish, I haven’t been able to get these shades to last anywhere even close to 8hr, even over a neutral lip liner. Something about shade 43 made it impossible to get a sharp lip line from the bullet. The formula just made it look like I had coloured outside of the lines!
43 is a caramel toned nude (top) and 45 is a blue toned nude (bottom)
The colours don’t entirely sit well with my skin tone either. The lightest shade is too pale, the darkest too dark leaving the 2 of the middle 3 to be very meh. I had such high hopes for these shades to give me the perfect high street nude but sadly they missed the mark for me personally. Hats off to Rimmel for creating 5 nudes shades though, it’s a hard old colour to get right on the high street.
I know they look fantastic on some people, for which I am jealous, but my tip is to look at the testers before buying!
I am on the hunt for shade 42 as nowhere I have tried has had it in stock – i’m giving the Nudes collection 1 last try to redeem themselves!
