We're told this on every Rimmel advert by Kate Moss, and I've been to London quite a few times. I still don't know what the London look is though. I do know, however, that I LOVE this lipstick. I always thought that I had to jump on the nude lip bandwagon, but I did a reassessment a few days ago. Somewhere in my bloodline there's another race, there has to be; I've got dark hair and eyes, skin with a year-round tan (no, it's not a fake one!), a flat face and big lips. Everyone thinks I'm foreign. This, for me, means a nude lip looks ridiculous. I probably couldn't look more stupid than I do with a nude lipstick, because my lips are rosy pink, and nude makes them paler. Cue the 'darker' nude lip!
The consistency of Kate #08 is beautiful; the perfect amount of creamy, moisturising, pigmented goodness. As you can see, it's like a blushed rose pink colour, with a nude brown undertone in there. It's a great 'every day' lipstick that lasts for several hours. I like to keep topping it up anyway, but even after mocha and a baguette it was still there! It's not shiny or shimmer, but it's not matte either - it's got a sleek glow to it that makes me love it so much more. When I wear this, I kind of feel like I have those 'bee stung' lips that are forever talked about in romance novels.. well, a girl can dream!
The Kate Lasting Finish lipsticks retail at £5.49. Worth every penny!
