Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipsticks

Last weekend, I came across the Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte lipsticks at Monoprix in France.

There are 7 shades available in France, versus just 5 in the UK. I was elated to find a few shades that are not available in the UK, so I snapped up one of each. These are more expensive though at €9.50 each, versus £6 in the UK (where you can often get them on 3-for-2 sales). I'm curious to see which shades will be released in the US, where this has yet to arrive.

A smaller display with just 6 shades. The shades only have numbers, except for 111 which is called Kiss of Life.

My current collection, including two shades that were purchased in London (reviewed earlier here.

Of the six shades, 106, 107 and 110 are the most intensely pigmented.

The pic below shows 106, a vivid pink that is slightly less retina-searing than MAC Candy Yum Yum. This wore very well over four hours until I removed it before a meal. There was no bleeding into the fine lines even though I topped it with a gloss. It also did not cause my lips to peel, but it is less moisturising than some other lipsticks like Esprique Mellow Forming Rouge.

Below is 112, which does not look as brown on the lips as the swatch on my arm.
