Kate Moss lipstick collection for Rimmel - 03 & 08

     If you follow me on twitter you'll know that a few weeks ago I picked up two Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks in the hope to find a new perfect every day shade. I'm not going to lie, when I first saw the collection, though there are some beauties, no particular shade caught my eye. There just didn't seem to be any that jumped out at me as a 'me' shade. So naturally I spent half an hour swatching and comparing until I finally decided that 03 and 08 were going to join my little lipstick family.


The shade 03 is a nude with a touch of pink, but sat next to nudes like Hue by Mac it almost has a purple tint to it, which you can catch a glimpse of in the swatch. It comes out as a really gorgeous milky nude pink and looks amazing worn with Nars Turkish Delight lip gloss on top. The shade 08 is quite a bit darker and is a pink with almost berry undertones. It's not as wearable as 03, but it's still a stunning colour and looks amazing with a simple look & a flick of eyeliner. The pigmentation is amazing, they last for hours, and they are so moisturising which is always a plus when you have precarious lips like mine!

Because its so wearable, 03 has become my every day go to lipstick. It just gives me that effortless nude lip without washing me out, so what more could you ask? Have you picked up any of the Kate Moss lipsticks & which are your favourites? I'm definitely considering getting a few more.
