Advent Door 1 - Rimmel Kate Moss Matt Lipstick 107 Review

Afternoon lovelies,

So I thought I would kick off my advent calendar with a Christmassy lipstick. Since the weather turned, I've been on the hunt for winter appropriate lip colours - unusual for someone as pale as me!

There's been a lot of hype recently about the Kate Moss collection from Rimmel, especially the new Matte collection. Now I'm not really a lipstick sort of person, I struggle to even remember to apply lipbalm some days. However when I was in town, I was strangely drawn to the darker colour.

Packaged in the sleek, red of the previous collection, 107 is a deep cherry red lip colour with a good colour payoff, its very true to the colour in the tube. It has a nice finish, considering its matte it doesn't feel drying, however it does show up any flaws on the lips so a quick swipe with a lip scrub and your good to go.

I tend to get 2-3hours wear from this before I need to re-apply, but it does depend on what I'm doing. I like how it fades to a sort of just bitten stain on the lips. Sadly its not one of those lipsticks you can just slick on and go - it needs a mirror.

You can pick this up for £5.49 from Boots or Superdrug, and I garentee that you will be wearing this for the whole of Christmas!!

Now I'm on the search for a darker, more plum/blackcurrent toned lipstick - any suggestions?

    I absolutely love this lipstick - although I agree with you - you need a mirror! However it is perfect for the daring but not-overwhelming lip ;)
