Swatch Session // Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate 15th Anniversary Lipstick Collection
To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the most successful, unrivalled partnership in the beauty world. Rimmel and Kate Moss introduce a special-edition lip collection in Kate’s favourite reds and nudes.
In this swatch session I am going to share my first impressions and swatches of the collection.
If you are a regular on my blog or social media you will know that the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate 'Nude Collection' #45 is one of my ride or die nude lipsticks so I was extremely excited to try the anniversary collection, especially the nudes!
But before I give you my first impressions I wanted to share some information about the range I received direct from Rimmel:
• High-intensity colour formula infused with light-reflecting Black Diamonds.
• Long-lasting colour - up to 8 hours wear.
• Smooth, creamy texture for comfortable wear all day long.
Before you even open the lipstick you are greeted by a beautiful Rose Gold Limited Edition Case. I am sure I can speak for most beauty lovers that rose gold accents
I was lucky enough to receive 5 of the 6 new shades to try and review and below are the swatches, shade names (in order from left to right) and how each colour is inspired by Kate's iconic London Looks.
#52 Idol Red
Inspired by Kate’s love of playful and rebellious fashion, Idol Red #52 is a lush, vibrant red for a daring, cutting-edge look.
#53 Retro Red
Exuding vintage glamour, Retro Red #53 is a sumptuous berry red that reflects the revamped ‘40s and ‘50s retro style that Kate adores.
#54 Rock n Roll Nude
Kate’s renowned rock chick style is captured by Rock N Roll Nude #54, a peach-tinted neutral for party girls everywhere. Wear with smoky eyes and a wild-child attitude.
#55 My Nude
Taking inspiration from Kate’s everyday street look, My Nude #55 is a beige nude shade for understated casual chic. Team with a blazer for a dash of Kate’s nonchalant cool.
#56 Boho Nude
Boho Nude #56 is a warm caramelised nude that complements Kate’s laid-back boho look. She says: “My secret to pared-back boho beauty is natural, earthy shades. I love how the caramel tones of Boho Nude lipstick warm my skin.”
If you watch my video above you will see me wearing shade #54 Rock n Roll Nude and other than being a beautifully creamy, pigmented lipstick it was definitely long lasting. In the 5-6 hours I was wearing it I only reapplied once and that was after I ate lunch. It was also challenging removing the swatches from the back of my hand (especially the red shades) using micellar water so if you are looking for a lipstick that lasts this is the collection for you!
I love that these lipsticks are easily accessible and you can pick them up from your nearest Priceline, Big W, Woolworths, Chemist Warehouse and they retail for only $13.95! This is amazing value for a quality, perfectly pigmented lipstick and I definitely plan on picking up some back ups of the nude shades so I am never without!
