Rimmel 15th Anniversary Lipstick by Kate

Hello my lovely blog readers! How are you on this fine Monday?
Today I thought I would review a fairly new collection of lipsticks that has just hit the drugstores and been brought to my attention... the Rimmel 15th Anniversary Lipsticks by Kate Moss.

There are 6 lipsticks in the collection; three reds (Obviously! This is Kate Moss we're talking about!) and three nudes. Now I don't have all of them, I only have four but I will explain what the other two lipsticks look like.
So I picked up a few of these lipsticks for a fairly affordable price of £6.49 each.
Anyway, on with the review!

Muse Red
A beautiful red, not too bright but definitely not dull. This is absolutely perfect Christmas... yes, I am talking about Christmas in August! I think this red would look amazing on pale skin especially.

Retro Red
A stunning red with purple-y blue-y undertones. This is my definitely favourite red from the collection. I think this shade is perfect just as we're coming up to Autumn. Again, I think this shade would look amazing on anyone with fair skin.

Idol Red
This is the last red in the collection (that I don't have) and its very similar to 'Muse Red' but 'Idol Red' its slightly brighter with slight blue undertones. It was just a bit bright for me but if you love your bold lips then I'm sure you would love it! It definitely gives off a Taylor Swift vibe!

Boho Nude
This is the darkest nude out of the three. On pale skin it is less of a nude and more like 'Velvet Teddy' by 'M.A.C' so I think this shade would look amazing on more tanned skin. If you love your brown nudes then you will love this colour.

My Nude
This is my favourite nude from the collection. It's very girly and very pink. I think you could wear this shade all year long, it works for any season but I have to say, this has been my go to lipstick this summer!

Rock n' Roll Nude
This is the last nude in the collection. It's ever so slightly pinky and it reminds me a lot of 'Creme Cup' by 'M.A.C'. I didn't pick this one up because it is very light and it washed me out slightly and I am already quite pale so I didn't want to look dead! So I think this shade is definitely for someone with more of a tan.

I think the packaging of this collection is pure perfection! As a girl who is obsessed with rose gold I'm sure you could imagine how excited I was to see these in my local drugstore! These are actually currently on display in my room!

The actual quality of the lipsticks are incredible! They are incredibly creamy and light, leaving your lips feeling smooth and soft. The consistency of the products, again, is fabulous! They glide on to your lips incredibly easily. The consistency is very much like a creamy lip butter.

Throughout the day I would say I only have to re-apply these lipsticks once which in my opinion is incredible! I re-apply the lipstick after lunch and even then the pigmentation of the lipstick isn't completely lost just slightly faded but, me being a perfectionist, I have to re-apply it to perfection!

Overall I would rate this collection:

I really hope you enjoyed this review! I had a lot of fun writing this and taking the photos for this blog post!
I'll see you very soon with some very exciting blog posts *insert smirky face emoji*
