I know it’s quite late but I can’t sleep so decided I would write another review. This one is going to be for Rimmel and Kate Moss’ Lipsticks in #05.
|Rimmel’s Kate Moss Lipstick Range #05|
When I got this sent through I was so excited to try it out even though I don’t wear lipsticks that much…I normally wear lipglosses or lipbalm as I focus more on my eyes but I decided to try a few days by keeping the eyes simple and having the ‘pop’ of colour on my lips.
I’ll tell you something, it seems to make me get ready and out of the house quicker as I don’t have to spend 10 minutes focusing on my eyes! All I do is a apply a little bit of mascara, bronzer/blusher and the lipstick…done!
I have to say I’m very impressed with the lipsticks. The colour is lovely and suits my skintone, it’s not a bright pink but it is noticeable as you can see in the photos below….beware- I am pulling a stupid face haha 🙂

|A smile for you all! 🙂|

Another thing I have to mention is that this lipstick smells and tastes of sweeties which made me love this sooooo much more than any other lipstick I’ve tried yet!!
This keeps lips smooth and doesn’t dry them out if you wear it everyday but I always apply a vaseline or lipbalm, I make my own lipbalm so use that or vaseline, before applying lipstick to make sure my lips stay smooth and hydrated!
Here are a few tips to keeping lips looking and feeling gorgeous.
- Always apply a lipbalm or vaseline before applying lipstick.
- Use an old toothbrush with a bit of vaseline or your fave lipbalm on your lips and gently ‘exfoliate’ the lips.
- Or you can try sugar on a damp hand towel and gently ‘exfoliate’ your lips.(Recommended)
I love the last method as you use natural ingredients that are always in the house. I use this method on myself and on models before photoshoots if they have really dry lips or just for a smoother effect if they’re required to wear a really strong, bold colour!
The packaging on this is so simple yet adorable. I love Kate’s signature with the little heart. It adds a real girlie touch and looks lovely in make-up bags.
I also liked the little pink sticker telling you the number of the lipstick on the bottom!

I’m going to be giving this a 9/10. It lasts for a while if you don’t eat or drink but if you’re like me and love ‘coffee breaks‘ and ‘snacks‘ throughout the day then you will need to keep re-applying as it doesn’t have the best staying power!
Colour wise it’s gorgeous, it’s not too bright but is noticeable and if you like to add a ‘pop’ of colour and run out the house I would recommend this range especially as it tastes of sweeties! Who can resist sweets!?
