RIMMEL LASTING FINISH MATTE // 104

I’ve never been a daily-lip-product-wearing gal. I like my Rosebud Salve, yes, but in terms of colour on my lips on a daily basis, well, that’s just way too high maintenance. But after seeing Kylie Jenner’s selfies circa Coachella, where her lips seemed to suddenly look perfectly defined yet subtle (also much bigger than they used to…), I needed to get my hands on an nearly natural shade as well. Too many times I’ve selected nude shades far to beige that made me look sick, and opted to grab a lipstick at the drugstore to be safe. Rimmel’s Kate Moss collection literally takes all of the guess work out of lipstick shopping– all the the shades are super chic and they’re all decent quality. I played around with a few rosey-nude shades, eventually picking 104. It’s essentially a bolder and slightly pinkier version of my natural lip colour, which means application sans mirror is totally an option. It has a satiny-matte finish that is comfortable on the lips and layers really nicely. It’s actually quite moisturizing for a ‘matte’ product (though, as I said, this isn’t entirely matte), and layered over some balm, makes the perfect bitten, berry-mauve pout.
