The original "by Kate" lasting finish collection from Rimmel are my all-time favourite drugstore lipsticks, which is a bold statement coming from a beauty blogger and a self-confessed lipstick hoarder! I already owned every shade I could get my hands on, so you can imagine my excitement when I heard that Rimmel were releasing a whole new collection of 5 perfect nudes, plus a lip balm! I must admit that I rushed to my nearest Boots store as soon as these beauties hit the shelves, and started off with picking up 3 of the new products.
43 (left) is a brown nude which looks amazing with my current tan and is perfect to tone down your make-up if you're already wearing a bold eye look. 45 (right) is a dusty blush colour which enhances my natural lip colour on a day when I'm wearing very little make-up, and suits a paler complexion. The formula is exactly the same as the original lasting collection lipsticks, hydrating and pigmented with impressive staying power. I also just had to try out 01 (centre), despite my existing ridiculously large collection of lip balms, and was pleasantly surprised with how hydrated it made my lips feel, without leaving a layer of residue. This makes it perfect as a lip primer underneath the other lipsticks, or on its own to keep your lips soft.
All of the lipsticks are encased in a gorgeous new baby pink plastic packaging with the signature "Kate" in white, with the lip balm providing a contrast by using the same colours the other way round. They look gorgeously classy on display on my dressing table!
My favourite shade so far is 45 (above) because it really compliments my natural colouring. I would wear it with very natural make-up on a day to day basis, such as for college or hanging out with friends.
If you've tried the new Nude collection from Rimmel, let me know in the comments which is your favourite shade! I will be going back to Boots very soon to pick up the other 3 colours, as I can't get enough of the "by Kate" collection!
