Review: Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick in 45

C: Annie treated me to this amazing lipstick for my birthday as I had been admiring it in Boots for a while but decided I had way too many lipsticks to invest in another. Obviously Annie knew this was not true, I clearly needed more and this was the perfect addition to my ever expanding collection!

First of all (although Annie disagrees) I absolutely love the packaging of the new nudes collection! This photo actually makes it look a bit pinker than it is in real life, but it is beautiful! I think its sophisticated and looks way more high end than a Rimmel lipstick.

I had picked out shade 45 as apparently this is the best shade for my hair colour/skin-tone (there was a handy shade guide in Boots) and also because this is the sort of nude colour that I think suits me best in a lipstick! Just look how pretty it is!

Cheeky little swatch for you there – Im afraid my face won’t be featuring on the blog any more until this pesky preggo bloat has disappeared. So possibly never again actually, so this swatch will have to do guys! But just look at the colour! This is with just one swipe, so you can actually build up the colour with a second layer if you want it to be more pigmented.

The formula is also super creamy and feels comfortable enough on your lips for every day wear – something you definitely need from a nude lipstick. However, the quality is the same we have come to expect from Kate Moss’ lipsticks and the lasting power is pretty good too! So for the bargain price of just £5.49 (available here) you just can’t go wrong with this little bargain – it is definitely one I shall be getting a lot of use out of.

Have any of you guys invested in Kates new nude lipstick range? If so do you recommend any other shades? Let me know! #twolittleowls

The Perfect Summer Nude

A: this is a lipstick I’ve been loving recently – and I’ve had it a while, Chloe bought it for my birthday last year. But I’ve been finding myself go for this every time I go out at the moment. It’s the Rimmel by Kate Moss in the shade 03.


It really is perfect for this time of year because it’s so easy to wear and apply. It’s have a beautiful sheen which I prefer to a matte in the summer months – and it’s super hydrating which is always a bonus. The shade is so pretty, and can be layered really easily – so you can go for a subtle creamy nude or layer it up for a dark tone. And it’s the perfect day time to night time lipstick, if you’ve been at work but haven’t got time to do another make up look, you can apply this and you’re good to go! It also has amazing lasting qualities which is ideal for those summer days when the last thing you want to be worrying about is touching your make up up!

Spring Lip Colours

C: as the seasons change so does our choice of colours/finishes of our make up. As the weather gets sunnier I tend to stop wearing the dark matte colours of winter and lean towards a brighter, glossier lip! So to celebrate such seasonal changes I have picked out my top favourite lip products that are currently at the top of my lip product drawer!

 So from the far left we have:

Model Co Shine Ultra Lip Gloss in Strip Tease – £12 and available here

Clinique Chubby Stick in Whoppin’ Watermelon 06 – £17 from here

Mac LustreGlass in Venetian B62 – £14 from here

Kate Moss Rimmel Lipstick in 110 – £5.49 from Boots

Maybelline Baby Lips  in Pink Punch – £2.99 from Boots

And now for the swatches:

So firstly we have the Model Co Lipgloss. This is a sheer nude gloss, with hints of glitter/shimmer through it which gives a perfect “your lips but better” look! It isn’t sticky and lasts a surprisingly long time for a gloss! Perfect for a day time or night time look.

Next up we have the Clinique chubby stick, which is a beautiful pale pink that can be worn as a subtle colour, or layered up for a more striking look. I used this all the time, as it has good pigmentation when layered up, but is less high maintenance than wearing a lip stick when you are going out for lunch etc.

Well we couldn’t have a lip product post and not mention either Mac or a red lip could we?! So we have combined both! This Lustre Glass by Mac is a highly pigmented gloss in bright red. A perfect way of updating your favourite red lip from a dark matte colour to a Spring inspired glossy lip!

Next up we have the Kate Moss for Rimmel Lipstick in 110. This is the perfect coral shade for Spring, and lasts forever! The only thing I would say is that if you aren’t a pro at putting on lipstick, I would be wary of going out the line, because this stuff does not come off your skin (not ideal for drunken lip stick application!)

Last but not least we have the Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch, I won’t go on too much because every beauty blogger and their mother have heard of these. Pink Punch is a bright pink lip balm which is the perfect way of looking after your lips and giving a pop of colour this Spring. This bad boy hasn’t left my handbag all month!

So what lip products are you guys using this Spring? Let us know/if you have any recommendations! #twolittleowlsblog
