Hero Product : Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick

I had seen an ad for this new Rimmel Kate Moss matte lippy in a magazine but couldn't find it anywhere around where we live in Germany, so was VERY excited to see it everywhere on our last trip to the USA.  I grabbed two tubes in Walgreens so I could try it, and test it against my fave MAC matte lippies.

Well, there's no real comparison.  The Kate Moss stuff is great.  It doesn't clump as much as the MAC lippy and it's about 70% cheaper than the Mac as well.  I put it on after my Boots No. 7 lip liner and it seems to last for ages.  There's still a fair bit on when it comes around to me taking my makeup off at night, after eating several meals.  Granted, if you're not spending your days with dogs or horses, and actually have to interact with people, you might want to swipe a bit more on throughout the day, but I'm thrilled with it.

I'm sure Kate had minimal input to the product, and I've never quite understood her appeal, but she's managed to get her name on a great thing here - so whip along to your Rimmel display and drop $5.50US to give it a try.

Oh, just in case you're wondering, this is NOT a paid advertisement for Rimmel and I'm not getting any freebies - I just love this product.  Though, if Rimmel is reading and want to drop me a box of goodies, I'd be more than thrilled!


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment!
