Shade 14 is a milk chocolate tea - light to medium taupe-pink nude - with a creamy satin finish. Its opaque enough to cover my pigmented lips, works with my very fair NC10 warm skin without washing me out, is moisturising and creamy, long lasting, and does not go into lines. The Cinnamon buns & whipped cream scent I love - so very english! Packaging is adorable too, with the slanted lid with crown on top and the red "Kate" with love heart signature. So much cuter than my MAC, Chanel, Lancome, or even Dior lipsticks, I actually feel I get a better luxury lipstick for a 1/4 the price - thanks Kate Moss & Rimmell!! continued >>
I'm a nude lipstick addict,that's all I wear on my lips. I really like this warmer tone nude and look really pretty with or without gloss. Some complain that it's drying but because its made to last the formula is on the drier side but for me at least it's creamy enough that I don't have any complain about it. I also put on lip balm before any lipstick to smooth out the texture of my lips. I will be repurchasing once I'm done with the one I have now.
I really like Rimmel lipsticks (I just wish there was a better shade selection!), and I love the Kate Moss line in particular. So far, my favorite shade has been #80, but I like this one as well. This is a pale nude, and it actually looks a bit TOO pale for me when I put it on (I have medium skin, medium-dark brown hair). However, I wear it when I am going for a darker eye/paler lip combo. Like the other lipsticks in the Rimmel line, this goes on smoothly and provides opaque coverage. However, whereas I've found that #80 seems to last forever, this lighter shade doesn't seem to have very good staying power for some reason. I might or might not re-purchase.
I have always wanted a nude brown lipstick, but I've had trouble finding one because my skin is pink and fair, and most browns are too dark and warm/roasted to look natural (for example, MAC's Double Shot). Other "nudes" are too light and pasty-looking, thus draining my face of life (MAC's Honeylove).
This color is perfect because it's a warm 90's-era brown with yellow and pink tones. I had tried Pure Zen by MAC, and it was too yellow, almost light orange on me. Fairest Nude by Loreal is pretty, but too pale and not suitable for work–it's more of a statement color with bold eyes, IMO.
I also love the firm, even, smooth texture of this lipstick. It's not oily and slippery like so many Revlon shades, but it's just as affordable. It lasts forever on the lips and wears off evenly. It can be drying on chapped lips, so a balm and soft lips are recommended with this shade.
The packaging is cute, too. Black, with "Kate" in red. The scent is kind of strange, like spicy fruits or florals, but it doesn't persist once applied on the lips.
I've been very impressed with the Kate lipsticks and will keep trying more. I can see why this shade is too "gray" for some people, but it works for me.
Another NC40 WINNER! I'd read Kate Moss's article in Elle about why she chose these shades and how hard she worked to get them right. She worked hard! I was given the Nude (14) and it is PERFECT for my skin-tone!
The pluses - texture, color payoff, staying power, price point.
The minuses - drying and requires a perfectly smooth lip skin in order to not make dry lips look and feel even worse.
Will I buy it again? Yes. It's just too perfect! I just make sure to exfoliate first and re-apply balm and a bit of balm or gloss on top every 3 hours or so. Worth it for me.
I love everything about this lipstick - the formula, the consistency, the moisture except one thing - it looks HORRIBLE on my pigmented lips. From the swatch/bullet I thought it was a typical nude with pinkish undertones sort of like L'oreal's Fairest Nude or MAC's Blankety. Yikes! I was so wrong. On my lips it had a sort of purplish gray undertone as if I took clay and rubbed it on my lips. It makes me look like a corpse which is such a shame because I had high hopes for this lipstick :(
I have awful pigmentation on my lips, and this didn't cover it. Actually, it kinda intensified it. It also didn't compliment my asian skin (but, that's kinda my fault due to my bad judgement - I knew I wasn't good with nudie colours). Applying about 1 coat isn't so bad though.
I love the Kate Moss Rimmel lipstick line and not just because it also has my name on the packaging (though I do find that little touch adorable, carrying around a lipstick that's somewhat personalized).
This lipstick is a lovely dark nude color with a creamy consistency. The staying power is pretty pathetic but for the price (less tha $8 aud) hence the rating of 4. The annoying scent seems to go away the more I use it, but that's probably just me getting used to it. I prefer this one to the 03 shade as it's a tad darker and more wearable for my fair-to-medium warm skin tone. Great everyday lippie.
I LOVE the color pay off for this lipstick. It is more opaque than i expected which is great. It does kind of smell like a cheap fruity lip balm, but that doesn't bother me. I just wish it weren't so drying and lasted longer. The color, on my lips, comes off as a more tan color with a hint of pink undertones. One of my favorites!
The quality of the formula is great, but the color doesn't suit me at all! I was so thrilled to find a nude that I could pair with smokey eyes, but there's no way around it: it makes me look like I belong in the set of The Walking Dead. Seriourly, be careful about the shade, it's definitely not for everyone. I like the shade 08 much better, it's a nude color with a hint of mauve that's way more flattering.
