So I'm probably a little late to the party with this one, old products which have suddenly become my new favourites, oops. As most of you will know by now, I love travelling, I am suffering from an extraordinary case of 'wanderlust': 'a strong desire to travel', I enjoy jumping on a plane, but I've got to say, one of the highlights of travelling for someone who loves beauty as much as I do, (I am primarily a beauty blogger after all), is that first step into the duty free section. That's when it really hits me that I'm going on holiday. It's like female heaven. Everything a beauty lover could want under one roof, without the crippling price tags. I can't not venture into the duty free shops. When I went to Greece about a month ago, I purchased probably my favourite duty-free products yet and they were extremely affordable too. I'm excited to introduce you to something that I've had my eye on for years...
I remember the day when Kate Moss launched her first lipstick collection, it feels like years ago. I desperately wanted the bright red that she wore on the adverts but every-time I went to get it, it was sold out. I'm glad I waited, because I actually ended up getting 4 of the lipsticks, for the price of 1! I guess lipsticks don't exactly go out of fashion, in fact, more than often, colours come back into fashion, I don't mind that these are old releases, I love how they look on my lips and it means that they're now super affordable for us all.
I feel like this set is probably the most easy to wear collection I've ever come across, with gorgeous nudes, an orange, a pink and a red - what more could you want from a lipstick set?
The set cost me a mere £8.00 from the airport but you can buy all the lipsticks from ASOS here.
Top to bottom:
Kate Moss Lipstick Shade 005: A gorgeous pink colour but it's not too girly, I don't feel like a barbie when I put it on.
Kate Moss Lipstick Shade 008: Probably my favourite night-out lipstick at the moment, it's still quite nude but that extra depth/darkness to it gives such a lovely full lip without being too over the top, I think this is an extremely sophisticated shade.
Kate Moss Lipstick Shade 003: My go-to day-time lipstick, this is the perfect pinky-nude because it isn't too light so it doesn't give you that 'foundation lips' look, it's dark enough to still give you a nice full look but in a very natural way.
Kate Moss Lipstick Shade 001: The original, the beautiful, bright red.
I bought mine for £8.00, they were originally £12.00 for a box of 4 but they had a special discount on the day that I bought them. Lucky for you, you can get them all on ASOS here and some of them are in the sale!
Do I love them? Yes. Am I glad I bought them? Gosh yes! I am so happy with these lipsticks, I only wish they were in my life sooner. I genuinely believe that these are the only lipsticks you need in your life, to take you from day to night. High intensity colour, they're meant to last for up to 8 hours, I wouldn't say they last for 8 but they don't fade away like some lipsticks do, they definitely last for a few hours without needing a touch up. Plus, they're infused with black diamonds so that they reflect light which is pretty cool. I just love how effortless these lipsticks look, all the colours are so sophisticated and natural but so so beautiful. Thanks Kate Moss!
They're in the sale on ASOS below:

I hope you liked this review, a few people asked me to write it after seeing my Kate lipstick in my June favourites post! Do you own any Kate Moss lipsticks? Do you own any Rimmel lipsticks? Have you heard of the range? Do you like the colours? What do you look for in a lipstick?
Lots of love, Em x
