Rimmel Nude Collection By Kate - Lipstick Shade 48 Dark Nude | Review & MAC Dupe

Hello! ♥

Rimmel Nude Collection By Kate - Lipstick Shade 48 Dark Nude

I was pretty excited when this range first came out as I think it's great that a drugstore brand have released a whole range of nude lipsticks for a variety of skintones, but I ended up with only one lipstick.. I thought I'd trial one item and if I like it, I'll go back for more!
The range includes 5 lipsticks (£5.49), a lip balm (£5.49) and 5 nail polishes (£4.49).

Rimmel Nude Collection By Kate - Lipstick Shade 48 Dark Nude

I have the lipstick in the shade 48 Dark Nude and I'm OBSESSED with it! It's far too dark to be a nude for my skin tone, but it's been one of my most worn lipsticks since I bought it. It's just such a beautiful shade!

The lipstick itself has a great formula, like all Rimmel lip products do! It's extremely creamy so it just glides onto my lips.. It's not drying at all and doesn't settle into fine lines on my lips. It's quite pigmented, and the colour lasts on my lips for about 4-6 hours before I need to touch it up.
I love a matte lipstick so I prefer to dust some translucent powder over this satin-finish lipstick to achieve a matte finish instead.

I've already shared a few MAC dupes from Rimmel on my blog and I've got another one!
This lipstick is just very slightly lighter/more pink toned than MAC's Verve lipstick. Verve is also more pigmented.
(I think it's obvious by now that I take the worst swatch photos, sorry!)

Thanks for reading, Thahira x

    1. Me too! This is just as great as the other Kate lipsticks I've tried, but it's probably my favourite shade out of all the lipsticks she's come out with! x

  2. I'm yet to pick up any of the Kate Moss Nude lipsticks, but I really need to change that soon as I'm only ever reading good things about these lipsticks! This shade looks gorgeous but I think this would be too dark as a nude on my skin-tone though xx

    1. You really should try one soon! I think there's an offer on Rimmel products in Superdrug and Boots atm! It's too dark to be a nude for me too, but I'm still loving it.. There are also 4 lighter shades to choose from! x

  5. I'm over here from Cluttered Closet blog and I'm really glad to have discovered your blog :). I'm yet to try out this new nude lipstick collection from Rimmel but so far I love the packaging and some of the shades I have seen online. This is such a gorgeous one but I think I would personally go for shade 45 x

  8. 48 is the shade that I swatched in Superdrug and fell in love with too! It's such a flattering shade, although I haven't picked it up yet as I have enough lipsticks lying about :)

    1. I wish I had your mindset, I've got so many brand new lip products and ones that I've only used once/ages ago but I still buy more *sighs* x
