My New Lippie: Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick 08 by Kate Moss

When it comes to less is more, there is an unwritten code on how to get dressed. You either show your legs, or you show your chest – never both right? Well for me, it’s the same for my makeup. I either play up my eyes, or play up a bright lip.

In most other aspects of my life, I’m a big fan of MORE IS MORE. But what to do on days when you want to keep lips defined but not distracting? Slick on a coat of nude lipstick! 

Enter the perfect colour!

This is the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in 08.

It’s a lovely natural dusky pink, with a hint of mauve. Like my own lip colour, just better!

The formula is creamy and smooth and didn’t dry out my lips. It’s not a moisturising lippie but it felt comfortable and it definitely has some staying power!

I know I’m ‘supposed’ to use a brush but I’m far too impatient– I always apply straight from the bullet for a strong colour straightaway!

This is quite an elegant look, great for daytime or with smokey eyes at night. I like that it has a bit of a satin finish without being too shiny but for those who like a shinier finish, I’d dress it up a bit with a layer of gloss.

I think it might be too dark for those with really pale skin or blonde hair, but for me, it’s a fab nude tone which subtly enhances my natural lip colour.

I really want to try the L’Oreal Color Riche Privee custom nude range which does nude lipsticks for different skintones! Has anyone tried that?

Do you have a daytime lipstick or lipgloss of choice? 

What do you think- it’s either lips or eyes? Or is it “more is more” for you?

Does anyone even use a lip brush!?

    No 8 looks gorgeous on you; such a good line – oh, and I have just waved at your (beautiful) lucky cat. Can't pass one without waving in the physical world, and now it seems I have to do the same in the virtual world too … x
