Rimmel - Kate Moss Lipstick Shade 01 - Review

Monday, January 16, 2012


The Kate Moss lipsticks for Rimmel are not exactly a new release
they have been around for a good few months now
and even when they first launched they didn't make quite the splash I expected.
While browsing Boots for a deep red lipstick I spotted Rimmel - Kate Moss in shade 01
and as it is a shade so out with my comfort zone I thought I'd give it a whirl!



The Rimmel for Kate Moss lipsticks are packaged in matte black casing
with a red signature from Kate Moss embossed on the side.
They are sleek and sophisticated in a sense but I really thought Rimmel 
would have pushed for a more edgier packaging choice?
That is all irrelevant but I do feel that the devil is in the detail
and to give each of your lipsticks a number code instead of a name is a little lazy,
I know some brands don't utilize shade names but Revlon do bar the Kate Moss range.



I have tried a few shades from the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick line 
and the formula is pretty much the same for each shade.
They each have a sweet candy type scent that you'll either love or loathe
once applied the scent is undetectable so it shouldn't affect wear.
The lipsticks are neither dry nor moisturising, somewhere in-between the two formulas.
I found shade 01 to glide on with ease and provide even opaque coverage.
The finish has a slight sheen but not a gloss type of finish so you may want to add that later.
The wear time does depend on the shade you buy,the deep shades last around 5 hours 
where as the light shades fair around the 3 hour mark.



Shade 01 is a deep Bordeaux red that looks fairly brown in bullet form,
unlike some reds you can see from the get go that this is cool in tone with a blue undertone.
Yet swatched and applied it transforms into a cherry red shade almost a true red
which is much more wearable for the majority than a red wine type of shade.
Shade 01 does require a liner and/or a lip sealant as the shade does tend to bleed.
One note is that Shade 01 which can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on your view point.

Product Summary
Round Up - A cherry red lipstick that has a slight sheen finish and stains the lips.
Best For - Those seeking a budget true red shade.
Pigmentation - (9/10) This is really pigmented and stains.
Availability - Most Rimmel counters such as Boots and Superdrug - link 4g/£5.49
