REVIEW - Rimmel 'Kate Moss' Lipsticks in '05' and '08'

Fragrance Direct seem to be ON IT lately in the 'beauty bargains' world - super cheap Dainty Doll and now Rimmel lippies for £1.99, yes please. Not just any Rimmel lippies either, the Kate Moss Rimmel lippies. Shall I say it again? YES PLEASE.

I was mega restrained and only purchased two shades - mainly because I'm a massive lipstick whore and most of the other colours are similar to some I already have. I googled around for swatches and settled on number 05 (a slightly orange toned, cheery, clean pink) and 08, a pinky nude which doesn't wander into 'corpse lips' territory.

05 looks a tad plum toned on me thanks to my lips natural colouring, if your lips are less pigmented it would be truer to the bullet shade. I think this is a great pink for those of us with strong yellow undertones who fancy something fairly bright without being garish.

08 is rather 'my lips but better', and I think it would work for anyone up to the medium skin-tone bracket. If you're a fan of shades like MAC 'Blankety' but would like something a bit less nude, 08 is well worth checking out.

Both are creamy, really well pigmented and glide onto the lips without dragging. I don't find them drying at all, which is rare for me as I usually slather some Darling Girl lipbalm under EVERY lipstick I have!

Check out the range available from Fragrance Direct to grab yourself a few gorgeous shades for the tiny price of £1.99 each.

 Do you own any Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks? Do you plan on buying any? 
Now I'm off to sit in the garden and eat Twister lollies - can't miss out on this gorgeous sunshine!
