Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipsticks

After stumbling across Frangrance Direct a couple of weeks ago I discovered they sold Rimmel Kate lipsticks for only £1.99 and it would have been rude not to have purchased one or two... or eight! And now I have finally found the time to swatch them all for you.

I bought the following colours; 03, 05, 06, 07, 09, 10, 12 and 19. All in all, I'm happy with the colours I bought and I'm pretty sure I'll wear all of them. They glide on so smoothly and they really do last a long time (proven by the fact I still have faint swatch marks on my arm). Here are the colour swatches below.

But I mean, who really wears lipstick on their arm? So I thought I'd treat you lovely people to some real life picture of me wearing aforementioned lipstick colour so you can see what they really do look like on. I'll also tell you a little bit about the colours.

My go-to shade is 03 which is just absolutely beautiful. It's an everyday shade that can be worn to work, shopping, drinks... whatever! I just love my lips in this shade.

One of my many favourites from this range, 05 is a gorgeous pink-ruby colour which just looks amazing. In love.

I think I may have finally found my perfect bright lipstick shade, 06. I'm really looking forward to wearing this in Summer. 

Another wearable nude shade, but the 07 has just a little more colour to it. Gorgeous and girly.

Vampy and sexy, the 09 is a deep, sophisticated red which would look stunning for evening cocktails.

I do have a slight fear of resembling Ronald McDonald in this shade, but hopefully Ill be able to pull it off better once I have a summer tan.

Another shade I'm going to be wearing a lot in the summer months. 12 is a gorgeous orange based lip colour which is just adorable.

Last but not least, 19 which is another wearable lipstick with just the right amount of colour. Another favourite.

So there we have it, the eight Rimmel Kate lipsticks in my collection. I would definitely recommend these lipstick and especially at the bargainous price of £1.99 each!

Which is your favourite colour?
