So I have done it, I have taken the plunge to brave my first red lip! I don't know why I'm such a wimp when it comes to lip colour, I think I'm just scared in case I get it wrong which is stupid I know because make up is all about experimenting.
Anyway so here is it, I opted for Rimmel's Rouge à lèvres Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in Rossetto, I've heard a lot of good things about this line so after swatching a few colours I decided this was the one. Rosetto is a gorgeous deep red which is perfect for a dramatic stand out look and giving you that bit of edge.
The colour applies easily and is very pigmented, so for a wuss like me I apply it lightly and then build on it. The staying power is great and lasted for the majority of my night, it only needed a top up after I had eaten which is to be expected.
My one negative with this lipstick is that I found that it left my lips feeling quite dry and wasn't hydrating at all. I now tend to use a lip balm before applying this.
Overall I am happy with my first red lip and I'm looking forward to being adventurous with more colours.
Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks by Kate can be picked up from Boots for £5.49.
