I Will Fight You for These Kate Moss x Rimmel Lipsticks

I have a new lipstick obsession, and it’s drugstore.  Monday just got better!

I like these lipsticks by Kate Moss so much that, as it says in the title, I will fight you for them.  Except I wouldn’t actually do that because I can’t even do one decent push-up.  So fighting is not actually an option here.

Sometime between Ellis Red and Fire & Ice, I realized that I have some sort of sick obsession with red lipstick.  If I see a wall of lipsticks, I go straight for the red shade.  I just have to.  I can’t explain it.  Anyways, when I saw that Kate Moss was doing a drugstore line and there was a red lipstick in there, I found myself standing in front of the display one day, out of the blue.  You know how it is.  And then somehow, 01 (the red shade) ended up in my hands and then somehow, and I’m still trying to figure out how this part happened, made itself a nice permanent home on my vanity.  Oh god.

It’s a blue-based red.  Sheered out, it becomes a gorgeous berry stain, yet it reads much louder when built up to full intensity.  Think red-red, not opaque berry red.  It smells like Rimmel’s old lipstick line, sort of sugary in the vaguely artificial sense.  I like it because it reminds me of my very first lipsticks, but something to keep in mind for those of you with sensitive noses.

I wore this for an entire month in Taiwan.  I like to wear it with absolutely nothing else on my face, which probably looks strange, but I don’t care.  I like it so much that I started eyeing the bright pink in the line, 02, which isn’t even available in the US.  This is the part of the story where I say ‘thank you’ about a thousand times to Liz, or as some call her, Liz-Buddha, who agreed to partake in a ridiculous lip product/book swap.

I wore 02 for the first time today, and guess what?  I love this one too.  Not as much as 01 because as fabulous as 02 is, it’s not red.  But it’s still a lovely, loud pink that demands attention.

And of course, I have to throw in something about the packaging.  It’s got Kate Moss’ signature on the tube, which in my opinion, ups the cool factor by 100 at least.  Well done, Rimmel.

I think you get the idea.  Even if you read the title and nothing else.

Who else has a soft spot for red lips?  Have you tried these Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks?  Have you tried the red one?  Do you love it?  Say yes!

  1. I also always gravitate toward red, but now I have too many and I’ve tried to stop the red fixation. The pink one is really nice, too!

    • yaaaa Dani, we’re going to turn this victory lunge into an actual thing, ok? 😛

      It really is. And red is sexy to begin with. But this is…über sexy. With the umlaut.

  2. Oh my… Looks like we’re going to have to fight, MM! 01 and 02 are so saucy looking. Yes. I said saucy. I’m hungry … FOR LIPSTICK! D:

  3. I saw these on sale at CVS a couple weeks ago (at 40% off!!) and I’m kind of kicking myself for not picking up the red and the peachy pink color (I think it’s #12?) I’m waiting for the next sale…

  4. I understand your obssesion with red lipsticks as it’s my own!! XD
    I also have this shade and Ellis red in the three finishes… You have so beautiful lips to wear red 🙂

      • Peggy Sage in Moscau, Nyx matte in Pure Red (surprising :D), Evilshade cosmetics in Devilista (astonishing O_o), Mac Dubbonet (a dark one…), Mac Eden Rouge, Revlon Matte Really Red… There are lots!!! U_u

  5. I have 01 and it’s really beautiful. I also have 08, and it’s a great neutral pink for my tanned skin (NC42). These are like chips- I can’t have just one! 😛

    • LOL well theoretically, I would fight you. In reality, I don’t even think I would last long enough to even call that a fight. Do it! I bet 01 would look gorgeous on you.

  6. Waaah, I want 02! Why isn’t it available in the States?! Why, God, WHY?! Sigh…gorgeous, and now I must check them out for myself!

  7. I have the red too! Love it a lot. I’ve actually got three more on my shopping list – including the fuchsia – cannot wait to own them! Well done Rimmel 🙂 xo

  8. I love Liz Buddha!! And I really love these reds… eek. My purchasing moratorium “had been” going rather well you know….

  9. I bought one of these, in 06, and it is searingly bright and I’m not sure I can wear it 😦 I blame you, of course, because I didn’t care about these at all until you were dying to have them. LOL! Ok, it’s my own fault but I will blame you for these looking so much better on you than me. Darn you! And I think wearing a red lip and nothing else screams *awesome*

    Also…when I first read the title of this post I thought it said ‘I will kill you’ not ‘fight you’. Yikes! I must think you’re really feisty 😛

    • Is that the Canadian version of some color we don’t have here, or is it just a color we don’t have here (LOL too confusing, all countries should just get all the same shades!!). hahahha go ahead and blame me, I was trying to enable everyone after all! Errr…I mean if it came down to it…

      LOL you seem to have a tendency to think that I am more badass/feisty/cool than I am in reality. And that is why I love you! (aside from you being an all-around awesome person, of course)
