Kate Moss for Rimmel London Velvet Touch Lipsticks

Rimmel velvet touch lipsticksI’m kicking all my other lipsticks to the curb because I’ve found a new favourite – it’s the brand new Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipsticks in a new velvet touch formula. These are long-wearing but not completely drying on the lips. You know them from the other Kate Moss collection because they come in the brilliant red tubes (the old collection was housed in black tubes).

I am a huge fan of these new lipsticks. They are heavily pigmented, long-wearing, literally velvet-like to the touch, and come in lovely everyday wearable colours. The finish is almost matte – I say almost because there does seem to be some moisture, some movement, to the finish, but it is basically matte. Because it’s not a true matte, the lipstick is easy to apply with a great deal of coverage in just one swipe. I actually like wearing these on top of a lip balm because I did find them to be slightly drying, but not so drying that I’m averse to touch-ups throughout the day.

The colour selection for these lippies is great – there is a nice range of nudes, neutrals, and bright colours so you’ll be sure to find something that really works for you.

Pick them up in drugstores for $7.49.

    That’s great- I am all for the long wears as long as they don’t dry out my lips the way normally other long wear lipsticks do.

    But my thing is I am gluten-free. So I am wearing Glam Girl Naturals Cosmetics Lipstick and Lip Gloss which are awesome, great colors, and keep my lips soft and luxe! Try them out guys, they are great.

    Are these long-wearing lipsticks? What is your favorite color? I’d love to see a photo of you wearing your favorite color.

    I just bought two of the new Clarins Rouge Éclat as was so impressed with the sample. great lipstick. This is certainly affordable will have to check it out as at $27 I limited myself to two, and then only bcuz how great I KNEW they were. More companies should invest in proper samplers as they would sell, I know I wont pay premium price unless I know. Excited to try these, I lost half my makeup collection during a recent move, I enjoy choosing new but it is costly and I miss some things that I know it will take awhile. Hows life with the baby, I know they take your time and energy in the first few years, actually longer but in different ways.

    Hey Kathy!

    Thanks for sharing your lipstick picks! I haven’t tried the Clarins lipstick and yeah that’s a lot to spend on lip products, but you know what, if you wear it every day then I think it’s totally worth it. As I like to say, the more you use it, the less it costs! ;)

    Life with baby is good – exhausting but really good. Honestly, can’t complain too much. She’s healthy and that’s the main thing.

    Sorry you lost some of your makeup! I would be choked if that happened to me. Actually, one time on the plane, I ended up leaving a whole clear plastic bag of cosmetics – I took it out to find hand cream and never put it away and then forgot to grab it before exiting the plane. :S I remember there was the perfect shade of Shu Uemura fuchsia lipstick in it… it was limited edition and I never got it back…
