Rise and shine cupcakes, it’s time to wake up! Or maybe, the one that needs to wake up and stop living in a cave is me! Obviously, that’s where I’ve been spending my time recently as it was just a month ago when I heard about the infamous Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107 (£5,49). When last year Rimmel came out with their new Lasting Finish Matte line, honestly I didn’t pay much attention to it at all. As you know, I have ridiculously dry lips and matte lipsticks are definitely something I try to avoid. However, when I saw this little beauty popping around some of my favorite blogs, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try to make it work for me. Long story short – I have finally found my perfect winter red lipstick and I can see it being glued to my lips for the foreseeable future.

If you are someone like me, who loves rocking dark lips during fall and winter, then 107 would be right up your street. It is this absolutely stunning deep berry-red, which I’d say in pretty neutral but still leans more toward the cool side and has lovely matte finish. It is quite an intense shade and gives you this ‘vampy’ look (even though the lip swatch doesn't do it proper justice), which I adore for the season. 107 defines the lips beautifully and it’s such a classy, elegant shade. It looks so flattering on the skin and brightens up my whole complexion. I believe that 107 would compliment most skin types and for those of you fellow pale ladies – don’t be put off by the deep shade, it looks stunning on fair complexions! :)

As much as I adore the gorgeous shade of 107 (hate that they don’t have names!!), the biggest surprise came from the formula of the lipstick. I am not going to lie, the first time I tried it on I was petrified that it would chap my lips like crazy and would dry them out further. Luckily, I was completely wrong and the lipstick actually felt okay. Wasn’t ideal but there was no pain or nasty tightening. What I do now is, exfoliate my lips, apply thin layer of my favorite EOS lip balm (review here) and then put the lipstick on top. This helps the lipstick to feel really comfortable on my dry lips but I can definitely skip this step and I would be fine. The Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte lipsticks are somewhat creamy and have nice velvety texture. The formula feels a bit heavy on but I’m not complaining. 107 is insanely pigmented and glides on the lips like charm. I am really impressed by the staying power of this gem as it stays on my lips for some good six hours with minimal fading. Have in mind that this lipstick stains the lips a bit though. What I also adore about the formula of this lippie is that even though the color is very rich, it doesn’t bleed of the lips and I can get away without wearing lip liner underneath.

In a nutshell, I am absolutely smitten by this lipstick. It’s everything I was looking for in a fall / winter red, and more. The shade is to die for, the formula is unbelievably good and the lipstick is cheap as chips. 107 is such a great alternative to your classic red lip so if you fancy spicing up your look a bit I think it would be a great choice! I highly recommend you trying it out and I will certainly go and pick up some more colors from this line. <3

Have you tried 107 before? Which is your favorite dark lipstick for autumn and winter?

Lots of love,

  2. This has been on my wishlist for aaages and I can't believe I still haven't gotten around to picking it up! It looks absolutely stunning and perfect for the autumn and winter, but I have to say I was a bit hesitant to get it because of the matte finish (my lips are insanely dry!).. But it seems to have worked out ok for you, so I will most definitely be popping it into my basket on my next trip to Boots! My favourite dark lipstick at the moment is Rebel by MAC! xx

  6. Това ми е любимото червило, а съм сравнително тъмна с маслинов подтон и стои чудесно. Може би на снимката, на която ти е на устните изглежда доста по-светло (розово) отколкото е, но обожавам факта, че не прави зъбите ми да изглеждат жълти, като повечето червени червила, може би е от по ..лилавия тон на червеното ;)

  19. This is one of my absolute favourite winter lipsticks - the most moisturising matte I own! Thank goodness because I love the shade but have super dry lips. Do you know of any other moisturising mattes out there? Unfortunately mac mattes are a no go for me come winter :(

  29. It seems like every British beauty blogger has a soft spot for this shade! I am so jealous as we don't get it in America! I first saw Zoe (Zoella) where it and I've wanted it ever since! It really is a gorgeous shade. At least we get all the MAC shades because they have such gorgeous vampy ones too.

  36. I've been meaning to pick this up for absolutely ages, but everytime I go down to the local drugstore it's sold out - or they don't even stock it :(

    Need to find it online - think LookFantastic or Feelunique stocks it so hopefully it'll be mine in dec :)

  37. I was thinking about getting this but I'm absolutely sure I want it. Badly :D
    No idea when I'll be able to get anywhere near a shop selling Rimmel again, but let's see. Where there's a will, there's a way, right?
    You have a gorgeous lip shape by the way!
