Despite a lipstick being the only product I was certain I wanted from MAC during my pre-MAC spree/love, I walked out of the store with everything but. Don’t get me wrong, they are truly beautiful and I will definitely go back for one (or five) soon, but I have fallen a little bit in love with Rimmel’s Kate Moss lipstick. I bought 05 aggges ago which is a muted pink colour but it’s the texture and slight sheen finish that I adore most, which I blogged about here.
But seeing that MAC’s delicious lippy’s were around £13 a pop (plus knowing I had a couple more Rimmel shades for Christmas), I thought I’d stick with my highstreet brands for now. And low and behold these two beauties were in my stocking! The coral shade is another Kate Moss lipstick in 12, and the other is a Rimmel Lasting Finish in Alarm which is also lovely but not as smooth to apply.
These are two ultra rich colours that I was slightly hesitant to wear at first purely because I haven’t dared anything so bold or bright on my lips before (only recently breaking away from my love of neutral Lancôme Juicy Tube glosses in favour of lipstick). But they look amazing on and help to complete an outfit. I use Boots Strawberry Lipsalve as a base which helps the product to glide on smoothly, enhancing the slight shine too. However I find that it wears off quite easily, and I’m conscious of being left with a ring of colour around the edge of my lips whilst the centre fades with eating and drinking...
But these are my new go-to lipsticks and I’m thinking about getting the Kate Moss shade 02 too!
I’m now shamefully off to watch Celebrity Big Brother. I literally can’t stand the show but this year I’ve become a little hooked! Rooting for Frankie to win I think – how about you?
Ps, these colours reminded me of a certain Disney princess so this post’s title is taken from her film :)
