Rimmel #107 & Rimmel #101

I’d never tried the Kate Moss range of lipsticks until now and I feel like I’ve been living under a rock. I’m completely obsessed with dark berry colours and this rich red is perfect; the deep berry colour and it’s slight undertones makes it flattering for most skin types too! Whilst I was purchasing it, I even grabbed this nude pink colour (#101). The complete opposite to what I usually go for but they’re both extremely pigmented and I love matte lipsticks, the only fault with them (usually) is how drying they are on the lips. However these Rimmel Lasting Finish ones have a creamy formula making them much more pleasant to use.  The staying power also impressed me  (I even struggled to get it off by the end of the night).

Considering I’d never tried this range of lipsticks, I can’t wait to get my hands on more.. The only disappointing side is; there isn’t a lot of colours to choose from. We can’t have it all though, eh?

You can purchase both here.

PS – Thanks to Mamma Powell for standing like a lemon whilst I swatch her arm and photograph them!

I’m not that pleased with the quality of these pictures but I really wanted to do this post. Take a delve into what I’m currently wearing and carrying around with me.

My foundation and face powder has been this MAC pair for a really long time (MAC studio sculpt Foundation | MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural) but along with those I’m using  this Benefit boi-ing Concealer (full review here) and love it. Although, only the concealer and Benefit Brow Zings are in my current make-up routine, it’s quickly becoming a go-to brand for me. I’ve been keeping my eyes pretty simple with this bargain MUA Trio Eyeshadow, it’s cheap and handy to carry around on an every day basis (A lot easier than carrying a palette around) and creating the perfect batwing with Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner. My favourite eye product (possibly of all time?!) is this YSL Shocking Mascara, creates huge volume. As far as lip products go, I can’t get enough of dark berry lips and my favourite two are definitely MAC Rebel and Revlon balm stain in Crush (full review here).

A few other products that I didn’t mention above but are pictured:

Maybelline Rose blush  | Real Techniques blush brush | Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick
