Rimmel Lipstick

      I hope you are enjoying my posts :)
      I am going the classic route this time and talking about an amazing red lipstick that I own. Its an absolute gorgeous color. This is Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in 01 or to give it a spin 'Rouge Noire'I just love saying the name.

Its an amazing blue toned red I tell you.

The formula is neither hydrating nor drying.So don't expect it to have moisturizing qualities. It's just a lip color.
It does have a scent to it which sometimes bothers me but mostly I don't care for it and sometimes I like it. Weird I know but who doesn't have mood swings right??

On to the packaging I like it because it stands out. Its black and who doesn't love black ?? The cap is signed n says Kate in maroon. I like the whole thing.

The pigmentation is very good and you don't need to layer it up to get a good colour pay off. It has a good lasting power, it stays for around 4 hours without too much eating and drinking. It has a slightly glossy finish it has a slight sheen to it which for me is a plus. It may look brownish red itself but when you apply it the color is strictly  a blue based red.

Sticker is off centre :( Bothers me !

Let me tell you a little personal secret. This was my first ever red and I haven't gone back since. It looks amazing n I get many compliments because of it :) So if you are scared of wearing red you must try this one, you wont regret it. I haven't!!
Here's my tip for making bold colours work for you. Apply a concealer around your lips n pat it with your fingers. Then apply a foundation on your lips, do this with a light hand. Use a lip brush to apply the lipstick and be careful while working around the corners of your lips. Tada!! Rock that red lip

PS red lip looks best when you go light on your eye makeup :P 
Ignore the straightener burn :p
