Kate Moss by Rimmel Shade 26

Kate Moss by Rimmel lipstick (Shade 26) £5.49 from Boots

I was always a bit iffy about nude lipstick- done wrong they can definitely have a distinct 'concealer lips' appearance which lets face it, isn't flattering anyone. But over the last few weeks I've been picking up a few nude shades here and there and I have to say I really like them, I think as long as the rest of your makeup is quite heavy to balance them out it can look really nice.

I'm already a huge fan of the Kate by Rimmel lipsticks so when I spotted this one I was eager to give it a go. It's quite a warm toned nude which is a bit of a risky choice with my cool toned skin, but I've discovered that it's a nice one for when I've been fake tanning. I like the fact that it's not too light and 'concealer-y' and doesn't look like I'm wearing brown lipstick either (another risk factor when it comes to finding the perfect nude lipstick!) It's a nice mid shade that gives colour and definition to the lips while still remaining in the nude lip category.

As with all the Kate lipsticks this is creamy and applies beautifully, it's slightly less velvety in texture than the matte collection and the finish is a bit more glossy. The wear time is about average, but it's not so slippery that it's smearing all over your face within five minutes so a nice easy wearing product. I think this has taken the top spot for my favourite nude lipstick, and has pipped by current most worn nudes Mac's 'Hue' and Dainty Doll's 'Baby Love' to the post.

What do you think of nude lipstick, is it a shade you'd usually go for?

  1. I never wear nude lipsticks because I'm so pale, I haven't found a shade yet that flatters my skin instead of making me look dead or sick! I think I'd always go for a pink over a nude though as I know I'll probably like it :)

    1. I feel your pain, I'm really pale too and do find that nude lipstick looks a bit better if I've got fake tan on like I have in the picture above. But they can suit pale skin if you find the right shade, something like Revlon's Lip Butter in Creme Brulee or Hue by Mac are good because they're not too opaque x

    3. it's Johnsons Holiday Skin gradual face tanner, so doesn't add much colour but makes me look a bit more human and less the colour of a milk bottle haha x

    I've been wanting a nude lippy for ages, but i'm leaning more towards the ones in the Dainty Doll collection.

    1. I have three of the Dainty Doll nudes and they're all lovely, I highly recommend :) They're a lot more sheer than this one too, and not quite as warm toned so are really easy to wear x

  6. I am not a big fan of nude lips on me, I personally am a pink kind of girl in the spring/summer and a dark red in the Autumn/winter but it looks gorgeous on you and I adore Kate Moss lippies :D <3
