Introducing...RIMMEL + KATE MOSS The Essential Nude Lasting Finish Lipstick collection

Hi there, my darlings! When I think of London fashion and British beauties, I immediately jump to the two Kates--Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and supermodel, Kate Moss. When I think of the trendiest beauty brands from the UK, I have to admit Rimmel isn't the first one that pops to mind but with this fabulous new nude collection in collaboration with the legendary Kate Moss, you can be sure that it certainly will from now on!
So, what is this collection that has me all excited?
WHAT IT IS: Ready to go bare? No one knows better than Kate that neutrals create a gorgeous and understated look, transcending day to night and demure to sexy. What’s more, there is a perfect, flattering nude for Each and Every skin tone – perfect for boosting your natural glamour.

Kate has created the season’s most lust-worthy nude shades for lips and tips. Inspired by the catwalks and her own timeless sense of style, the Nude Collection By Kate Moss offers delicate pinks, subtle apricots, cashmere beiges and rich toffee tones – there truly is a chic shade for everyone!

Talking about her Nude Collection, Kate says: “I want every girl to feel great in her own skin and find her prefect nude. Makeup is all about having fun and experimenting with both natural looks and red carpet glamour. But, for this collection, I really wanted to go back to basics, so I have designed a perfect palette of nudes to suit everyone. I think we’ve truly got a shade for every Rimmel girl.”

Available in TEN shades, you can find the perfect nude for YOUR complexion! Today, I have 5 of the 10 to share with you :

  • #040 - a pale nude
  • #041 - a pink nude 
  • #042 - an apricot nude 
  • #043 - a tan nude 
  • #044 – a coral nude

  • #045 - a rose nude 
  • #046 - an olive nude
  • #047 – a brandy nude 
  • #048 - a dark nude

Here's a close-up set of swatches on the back of my hand :

IMPRESSIONS : First of all, these smell DIVINE! Yes they are scented and they smell absolutely lovely! Just like your favorite, hydrating lip balm but more pigmented, just like your fave lippie! Best of both worlds, right here!

Super moisturizing and easily applicable, these go on like butter and feel like that too. I usually prefer a bold lip but let's be honest--99% of the time, I'm running out the door in the morning with nothing but a little lip balm, trying to catch the train to work. Now, I can throw a little of this on instead and I'll have a hint of color with all the benefits of a balm. It's not super long-lasting and wore off on me fairly quickly but I'm in the habit of applying lip balm to my lips throughout the day so this didn't bother me in the slightest. I pretty much replaced my chapstick with one of these and I was good to go.

Not only are these great for daytime or office wear but I can totally see myself reaching for one of the more pigmented ones like #043 for a casual dinner out. Is there anything more gorgeous than smokey liner, some vampy mascara and a nude lip? You really don't need or even want to go all out every night out and these are perfect for those laid back evenings.

Now, let's talk faves. It's really hard for me to find a nude lippie that looks good on my complexion--most of them either wash me out, making me look sick or blend in completely, making it pointless. So, I like that there's so much variety with these--neutral but still with that hint of color that works on a darker complexion! I'm really feeling #043 and #044 and I'm going to definitely pick up #045 the next time I'm at CVS!
