Rimmel's Kate Moss Nude Collection


Ever since I can remember, I have always been a bright lip kinda gal. However, this year, I have really found a love for nude hues on my lips too! I have discovered lots of great options from MAC's infamous 'Velvet Teddy to NARS' Audacious lipstick in 'Anita.' Now, I have yet another great shade to add to my ever-growing collection and that is one of the new Nude Collection lipsticks from Rimmel. The two Kate Moss collections previous to this latest release have been extremely popular due to their amazingly pigmented colours and gorgeously creamy formulas... and the new nude shades have definitely kept to these high standards!

There are six new products in the collection which all cost £5.49; five nude lipsticks and one clear lip conditioner. The idea is to apply the conditioner to your lips as a base coat for the shade that you follow up with, to keep them hydrated and to make for a smooth application. I decided that I wanted try one shade first to see how I liked it, so I opted for shade '45' which is a natural pinky-nude colour. It really suits my skin tone and colouring well as I am moderately fair (albeit, I do sometimes fake tan) with light blonde hair. 


I think that Rimmel have described this new collection perfectly, as they claim that there is a 'barely-there hue' for every skin tone. I without a doubt agree with that as this lipstick has just the right amount of pigmentation - it's neither too sheer nor too thick. It's definitely a wearable and natural daytime shade, although you can layer it up more if you would like to! Plus, I would also wear this shade in the evening too paired with a bold smokey eye. Just like the two Kate Moss collections in the past, the lipsticks are very creamy and comfortable to wear but that does mean that its not the most long-lasting formula ever. However, with that being said, it would probably be pretty easy to re-apply it on the go without any need for a mirror!

In terms of the performance of the clear conditioning lip balm, it does what it says on the tube really! It keeps your lips feeling nourished and it works as a good base for your nude shade to sit on top of. Still, one thing that I do like about this balm is that it contains an SPF of 15, which is great for the summer months and you could even wear it on its own if your going on holiday or are out in the sunshine a lot!

Overall, I think that this new collection is pretty great! It's affordable, the shades are extremely flattering and they are moisturising to boot. I would highly recommend that you go and pick one up for yourself but make sure that you figure out beforehand which of the 5 shades would work best for you!
