These are currently my favorite lipsticks. I bought them on a whim, I always seem to have good luck with my random Rimmel choices. These are just wonderful. I'm prone to dry lips but the matte is so creamy and doesnt accentuate flakes. And the colors are amazing! I'm pale skinned and these look so beautiful on my skin. I currently have 111 Kiss of Life which is a deep bright red and 104 (doesn't say the name) which is a wonderful mauve color. I adore these, and they smell great in my opinion
I bought one of these in a red color, the shade escapes me, because I was looking for a matte red lipstick and these ones were pretty cheap and had actually nice packaging, unlike the Wet 'n' Wild ones. The tube is actually really nice and very weighty, which I like. It's very opaque and definitely not drying but I wouldn't say it's exactly matte. If you want an actual matte lipstick like MAC's Ruby Woo, I'd go to the Wet 'n' Wild ones. Hahaha if they could just smush both lipsticks together, it would be perfect!
The big issue I have with this product is that it STINKS. Like I can't even get over how bad it smells. It's all you smell the entire time you've got it on. It's like a plastic-y old grandma smell and just...yeugh. That and it transfers off on eeeeeverything. Good luck kissing your boyfriend without him looking like a clown.
So glad I found this as matte lipsticks are few and far between whether they was drugstore or high end. I've seen at some Wal Marts they are as low as $4.00. My favorites are #103 a perfect matte pink, and #111 a dupe for M.A.C.'s Ruby Woo. I was also pleasantly surprised by the scent of these lipsticks as most lipsticks have that sickly sweet vanilla scent. Rimmel Matte lipsticks have a sweet fruity scent that I really like. These lipsticks have no flavor which is great too.
This is a great little product for its price! Lovely matte red packaging to reflect the type of lipstick. These lipsticks aren't as drying as expected. As long as you prime your lips the lipstick goes on smoothly and hides some of the lines you get without a base. The product has a nice smell, not like the crayon smell you often get from 'cheap' brands.
I bought this product in shade 101. The colour in the tube does not match your lips once on but it's still a lovely colour, like a soft barbie pink colour. I'd happily buy this product in other shades if I found somewhere that stocks enough of them. That seemed to be my only trouble. Overall a nice cheap matte lippy for those who don't want to splash out on the MAC versions!
I bought this in 110 which was a vibrant coral shade. Love it! I am a sucker for coral lipsticks and was so happy to find this in the form of a matte lipstick. The packaging is a cute red tube with 'kate' written on it...although Superdrug did ruin it by sticking the price labels on it and it was left all sticky after I peeled them off. ugh.
This lippie although smells sooo good..like watermelons or something. really yummy. It went on smoothly and felt hydrating. I thought it would have quite a bit of staying power since its supposed to be in the lasting finish category and had a matte finish. Unfortunately, it doesn't have super staying powers. My boyfriend came in for a kiss and was left with coral lips! Quite funny.
Ideally, I would prefer for it to stay on better but I guess its ok for days with no kissies!
overall, I actually really like it. Looks great, feels comfortable, smells wonderful and pretty affordable.
For the price, these are very good lipsticks.
I bought one in each shade.. just to have the capacity to mix and match. I mix the barbie pink with the reddish coral and I get a great shade of coral red which is not only gorgeous but exactly the soft matte finish I want now.
these are matte but not as drying as MAC or MUFE.. so do not fear. You cannot go wrong with these.
Love these! So cheap and good quality. I have very dry lips and these do not dry me out. Sometimes I put on some balm underneath. Works great. Love 109 beautiful intense coral color.
I have this in 110, which is a bright reddish coral. It is very, very drying (emphasis on the very) and your lips need to be really well prepped and not uneven like mine are in order for this to look good. I love the colour but the formula just doesn't work well on my dry, uneven lips.
This line of lipsticks is AMAZING quality for something that is sold in drugstores. I would say the consistency of them is very similar if not identical to the Mac matte lipsticks because it is creamy but still matte but not drying on the lips whatsoever. The quality is top knotch; the opacity of them is fantastic and they don't bleed, smudge, or anything and you don't need a lipliner to get a precise line. The quality is very comparable to the matte Mac lipsticks as well and some of the colors are dupes for Mac colors(for example, the nude is a good dupe for Hue and 101 is very similar to Snob except a bit darker). The packaging is also gorgeous! There are the red and black ones but they both have the Kate signature and a little heart and the packaging is a smooth matte just like the lipsticks.
I am obsessed with this and will purchase the rest of them as they are amazing quality for the price. The only qualm I have is that I wish this was a bigger line with more colors!
I have been on the hunt for that perfect matte nude lipstick, & I finally found it! I got it in color 113, & it is absolutely wonderful. It goes great with my skin tone & has that perfect matte finish. My only complaint is that if you have dry lips, it can settle in to the lines a little bit. But I've found that's a super easy fix if you just put on a little chapstick before applying! I will absolutely be repurchasing this product.
