Review: Rimmel Kate Spring Lipstick


Hi guys, long time no post. Sorry for that! The internship has been using up quite some time of my life. Right now I am prepping for a big fashion event where the company I'm interning at is participating in. The "to-do list" I received is seriously 2 pages full, and I'm talking about A4 pages, and with a small hand writing. I'm not complaining, it's tiring, but I'm sure I'll gain loads of benefits from this. And although it's super tiring and time consuming, I still enjoy interning there. Anyways. Moving on to the review.

As you might remember, I did a blogpost about Kate's Rimmel Spring Collection a little while ago (here). Unfortunately, the spring collection is still not launched in the Netherlands yet and feel unique didn't have stock on the colors I wanted to order.

However, a week ago I received a notification that one color I really wanted was back in stock again! I didn't hesitate for a second and immediately placed an order. Today I received the lipstick and thought I'd show it to you guys, especially since the swatches are limited online. The lipstick I ordered was in 16. It was my favorite from the swatches I've seen online, and I am so glad I got it!:-)

Number 16 is a rosy pink, great for spring and summer. As you might have noticed, I am a pink lover. I mean... It's kinda obvi, isn't it - I'm hinting at my pink layout haha. Below you'll find some swatches. I also swatched the other two colors I have from the previous collection, 10 and 05.



Above it's swatched on my lips in natural day light, without flash. If you do have flakey lips, I'd recommend to scrub your lips first and to moisturize them. As you might see, it does enhance the flakes a bit. However, this does not mean I don't like the lipstick. No, I actually really like it. It's quite pigmented and creamy. 

Thank goodness it doesn't have that cheap-ish lipstick smell like the previous collection. It does have a slight scent to it, but it's quite fresh and you don't smell it when it's on the lips at all

Below I did a comparison with two other lipsticks of the previous Kate Moss for Rimmel collection. The packaging is the exact same, except, this time 'Kate' is written in pink. The lipsticks from the previous collection are in 10 and 05.





You can see that I have quite a nice range of colors. 05 is more purple, whereas 16 is really a baby, barbie pink. It is gorgeous when you're pale, but I can imagine myself looking amazing when I have a bit of a tan. I think 16 will look great on many complexions. 

In the picture below I'm only wearing the Kate Moss Lipstick in 16 and Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer in Nude. No concealer, powder or anything else, hence the dark circles and imperfections on the skin. 


I hope this review helped you in a way, and convinced you to get this lipstick (or not). I'm planning to get other colors from this collection as well, I'm hoping feel unique will have 20 and 22 stocked up soon! You can get the lipsticks online here.

Let me know what you think of this color and whether you'd like to see more of them!

  1. The colours do look very pretty!! Thanks for posting the link too.

    I think that the L'oreal Colour Riche Balms are simply tinted lip balms whereas the Revlon lip butters are more like a slightly sheer lipstick (even though some of it are quite pigmented). The L'oreal Colour Riche Balms will give a hint of colour and the lip butters are much more pigmented.
