A collection review hasn't been done over here on the blog in a while but that’s all about to change right now. Rimmel London is embracing the nude trend and their new lipsticks are simply to die for. Nude is stylish, chic, natural and easy! Who doesn't love that look you can easily pull off during the day and night?! Being a fan of the sophisticated nude look, my favourite nude lipstick of all time has been Maybelline Tantilizing Taupe. However something new and better has come our way, and for the value there is no reason why you shouldn't be stocking up on all shades you will love right through summer and autumn. Temptation is a b*tch and, giving in and bringing every single shade home were definitely on my thoughts. Thankfully Rimmel provides us a simple guide to which colour suits our skin tone best, making decision time
somewhat easier. Here are the shades I had my heart set on.
Shade 40, the lightest in the collection, is a traditional nude pale. The one on my lips today and whilst it may not be for everyone, the elegance it provides it’s undeniable. Pair it with statement eyes and don’t be afraid to try the "bare yourself" lip look.
A peachy nude works wonder with my skin tone and shade 42 is the ideal pale pink/peachy toned nude. Unlike shade 40, this adds a nice touch of colour to your lips without being too over the top.
A pigmented dewy chocolate colour is what was missing in my make-up collection, so shade 48 is more than the perfect addition. It looks incredible on dark skin tones but being my favourite of the collection, nothing will stop my pale face from wearing it proudly. It screams sensuality and autumn couldn't come any faster for this shade to be worn over and over again.
(Extra shades include 43, a coffee nude worn by Kate herself and 45, the perfect purple/blue undertone nude, all of which you can check out here.)
These lipsticks are for sure my new favourites (only losing to Urban Decay and Chanel!). Pigmentation and durability are amongst the qualities of these extremely hydrating lippies. I find myself wearing them throughout the day with no issues, having to reapply only once or twice after eating. They are long lasting, simple enough to apply, comfortable to wear, don't cake or dry out your lips and due to the wide range of colours you are bound to find the one you love. Each lipstick also matches up to a nude polish. I have yet to try those but given the quality of their previous Salon Pro nail polishes I expect the same results- durability and great coverage. You can pick up one of each for less than £10 (lipsticks priced at £5.49 each and polishes, £4.49 each), and with the current offer at Boots where you buy one and get one half price, you will not be breaking the bank if you decide you want them all; I don't blame you if you do.
