Honestly, I only picked this up because it was half off at Walgreens this week plus I had a $1 off coupon combined with the fact that my curiousity of this color wouldn't cease after a photo featuring it went semi tumblr famous.
When you look at this color in the tube it is not very appealing I don't think... I mean it looks mauve. Mauve. I hate the word and the color. I had flashbacks to Airy Fairy (a Rimmel shade people raved about in mid 00s) which looked deep mauve with gold shimmer on my lips. Horrors. But for $1 and some change, I decided to give this a go because... the tumblr picture.
The formula is drying. There's no denying that. It feels dry when applying it to bare lips. You need balm under it or over it, which isn't a biggie to me because I like the fact that it sheers out the color, because despite being drying it is pretty darn pigmented. I don't notice the scent that people complain about that much.
The color is kind of hard to accurately describe. Did it look like the picture on tumblr that lured me into buying it? Well of course not. My lips are not the lips of the girl wearing it so different natural lip pigment issues come into play but was it close? Yes, it was in the same color family. Score. Despite looking mauve in the tube it actually goes on lips a rosier pink and yet there is no denying that it contains a slight mauvey undertone that produces a YLBB overall type of color. And it does this while appearing to be pretty darn neutral, so it should work for many different skin tones. Oh yeah, and no shimmer...huge plus in my book. And it really is truly pigmented... I find myself sort of just patting the product on my lips on top of some balm and gives me the look I want.
The lasting power of this is fantastic, even when wearing balm underneath or on top. It comes at an expense though, it is drying. Even with balm I feel a bit of moisture getting sucked out of my lips. I suppose that is what gives it such intense staying power.
If you want a really natural looking lip, don't be afraid to give this a go. It is a very forgiving color.
This is the perfect My Lips But Better colour. I am NC40 and this is perfect, it is moderately long-lasting, has a nice satin finish. I tried so many different kinds of lipsticks but this is the winner in terms of colour, price and packaging (plus she's Kate Moss). Rimmel never fails to disappoint, the Kate Moss lipsticks have some of the most wearable and amazing colours for different skin types, check it out if you're looking to try sth versatile but subtly different from your usuals.
Gorgeous lipstick color for everyday. It's a pinkier version of my lips. Formula is creamy, semi matte. Packaging is cute. Hate the scent but It doesn't linger. I definitely would repurchase this!
This is a great "your lips but better" shade. It is a nice soft lipstick that goes on as well as any of my high end ones. I wish it had more staying power, but it is very hard to find a neutral lipstick that stays around for more than a few hours.
This is a GREAT product. I bought it on sale for $4.99 at Shopper's Drugmart today.. And the quality almost beats my L'Oreal lipsticks! The colour lasts for a very long time, and when worn on top of a bit of lip balm, my lips don't feel dry. I'm pale and I was looking for a neutral, soft pink shade to wear everyday. Well, this is definitely it. The colour is beautiful - it actually gives quite a bit of colour to my lips, without being too dramatic. It makes you wonder if the colour on my lips is natural or not. Anyway, great buy.. I love the container as well. Cute and simple. I will buy this again and I will probably try more colours in the line.
I bought this almost a year ago, because me friend bought it and it looked amazing xD I also wanted a nude pink.
-Great everyday lipstick, looks natural
-Great packaging (I love how it does a 'click" when i close it :B)
I am not sure for the lasting power :)
Its a shame that i forgot this lipstick underneath all my lippies...xD
I LOVE THIS LIPSTICK! I'm pretty pale and this soft rose color is just perfect. Very moisturizing and long-lasting. I love it!!
I loved this lipstick and had no idea it was Kate Moss anything when I purchased. I love the color, looks pretty on me and I have very little natrual lip color. Pretty pink color not too pink or too light or dark. Price was fantastic.
Overall, this lipstick is good but not the best I've ever tried. I still prefer Revlon over this.
Colour: I ordered this online so was apprehensive about the colour. I checked the colour swatches online but the colour of the lipstick looked nothing like the colour swatches. The lipstick is a mauvey yet pinky colour so it looks like a pinky version of MLBB, which is not the look I was going for. The swatches looked more natural MLBB. I'm quite tan so the pinky colour doesn't look very natural or flattering on me. I don't recommend this colour to tan people!!
Product: The lipstick itself is soft and the colour goes on easily. However, there isn't much staying power and the lipstick disappears quite easily even without eating/drinking. The lipstick also has a really weird smell which I don't really like, but thankfully it disappears quite quickly upon application.
Packaging: The packaging is exactly as it looks in the picture. The packaging does not feel plasticky or flimsy so I think it'll hold up well in any make up bag. On the downside, it doesn't feel particularly luxurious either and its just a very normal lipstick case.
I wouldn't buy this again because I think the Revlon lipsticks which I usually use are much better. Although this is cheaper, the Revlon ones are definitely worth the higher price.
This is my favorite lipstick in the Rimmel line and one of my all-time favorites as well! I tend to like all Rimmel lipsticks, but the new Kate Moss line seems to have even nicer colors (although I STILL wish Rimmel would offer more variety!).
This is definitely a MLBB color on me. I would described it as a fleshy pink, but it definitely gives my lips color and is NOT a nude. It goes on super-creamy, AND it seems to last forever--for some reason, it has BETTER staying power than the other lipsticks I've tried in the Kate Moss line! I would definitely purchase #08 again.
