The Iconic Fall Collection by Kate Moss for Rimmel London

I thought it was ironic that the 4 shades I received for review are the same shades featured in the new fall ad! (From left to right: 15, 11, 01, and 06)

The Iconic Fall Collection from Rimmel London is a continuation of their collaboration with uber model, Kate Moss. Encased in an exclusive signature pack, these alluring shades were developed by Kate for Rimmel and capture her unique, sexy and unconventional style.

All of the colors feel smooth and moisturizing on the lips and 11 (a true red), 06 (a cool, subtle fuchsia), and 01 (a warm brick red) are surprisingly long lasting (like for real, I applied 01,  ate dinner (and drank a wine cooler) and my lips still had traces of color, similar to what you get with a stain. I had to use soap and scrub to get the swatches off of my arm). It took 3 or 4 swipes to get 15 (a sheer  grayish lilac) to appear opaque, but honestly, it's way prettier worn with one coat; it comes off as a beautiful, shimmery  sheer wash of color.

I don't generally wear lipstick a lot, I'm more of a gloss girl (usually because I've spent so much time on my eyes that my lips become an after thought), but I can definitely see incorporating these beautiful colors, with their creamy and enduring finish, into my fall makeup wardrobe. 

What do you think of the Iconic Fall Collection from Rimmel London and Kate Moss? Do you prefer lipstick to lipgloss? Do you layer them to get your own custom colors? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Until next time...
