Rimmel London Kate Moss Nude Collection Lipsticks: Review and Swatches
New from Rimmel London comes a line of nude lipsticks designed by supermodel Kate Moss. With four shades and an additional lip balm, the Kate Moss Nude Collection ($7.99 CAD each) is hitting the stores this month. To check out some swatches of these lipsticks, click.......

Packaging:
The Kate Moss Nude lipsticks come in a nude peach plastic tube with reflective silver detailings. Kate's signature is embossed on the cap and the top of the cap bears the Rimmel crown logo.
The packaging feels a bit flimsy but given the affordable price it's understandable.

Formulation:
In this new collection, Rimmel included one lip balm (shade #01) and four nude lipsticks. All four shades are fairly light so this collection is definitely more suitable for very pale gals.

#01: This is a simple transparent lip balm. The formulation is quite thin and slick; it's moisturizing with a fruity scent. Unfortunately though, the balm wears off pretty quickly.

#42: This is a fairly opaque pink peach beige. The formulation is nice and moisturizing and the finish has a natural sheen. Like most Rimmel Lipsticks, this shade (and the others in this collection) has that old school lipstick scent. I personally don't mind it too much but if you are sensitive to the scent, it's best to steer clear of these.

#45: This is a soft mauve nude. The formulation is definitely sheerer compared to all the other shades but it is hydrating on the lips and the color is the easiest one to wear.

#43: A tan beige nude, this shade is one of the most opaque out of the bunch. The formulation is nice and moisturizing but I did experience some patchiness.

#40: The lightest shade of the four, #40 is a pale ivory nude. The formulation is smooth and pigmented but this color is quite hard to pull off unless you have very pale skin.

Overall:
Formulation-wise, this is a nice nude collection with a natural and moisturizing sheen. However, the color options are a bit limited as all four shades are more suitable for paler skin tones.
Additionally, if you have naturally pigmented lips, these probably won't work well unless you pair them with a good nude liner to avoid patchiness.

Availability:
The Rimmel Kate Moss Collection will be available starting August 2015.
