The Rimmel and Kate Moss partnership has really been soaring recently, if Kates new Idol Eyes Collection wasnt good enough we now have a new Lipstick and Nail polish collection to feast our eyes on called Urban Bohemian, man I love that name!
The Urban Bohemian Collection is said to be inspired buy Kate's interpretation of a laid-back Bohemian look. Kate says...“I’ve always loved the laid-back bohemian looks because it’s all about individual creativity and self-expression.” I mean this collection really does scream Kate Moss doesn't it. The collection consists of 5 Lipsticks and 4 Nail Polishes all of which go from rich, earthy tones with cool brights and even soft nudes, so you can create a look as strong or as subtle as you like.
As you may know a good few weeks ago I went on the Boots online waiting list so that I could be informed when the Rimmel Kate Mascara was released (more information here), when Boots emailed me they kindly sent me a voucher code that added 4 free Kate goodies into my basket at the checkout but only when I ordered the mascara, so I got 2 freebies from the Idol Eyes Collection (review here) and 2 freebies from Kate's new Urban Bohemian Collection.
I thought I would write up a mini review of the 2 product's that I have tried from the Urban Bohemian Collection so far...
Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate in Pink 33 £5.49
This is my second Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick by Kate and I have to say I love the formula, it's actually infused with a light-reflecting black diamond complex and black mica to achieve incredible depth and intensity, not to mention it feels super creamy and soft on the lips and applies smoothly without dragging which is always nice. If I had to describe this shade I would say its very much a dusky, pink shade, it reminds me so much of something you would see Nicki Minaj wear if you catch my drift. The lasting power of Pink 33 is quite good and lasts me a good 3-4 hours before I could do with reapplying and it doesn't dry my lips out what so ever thank goodness. I'm dying to try the more plum shades in the collection as they look absolutely stunning.
Salon Pro Nail Polish by Kate in Goddess £4.49
I must admit I hadn't tried any of the Rimmel Salon Pro Lycra nail polishes until I tried Goddess and now I'm lusting after more shades from the collection because the formula of this nail polish is amazing! The ultra flexible Lycra formula claims to make the colour shock proof, chip resistant and anti-fading, with the ability to last up to 10 days and has a beautiful gel shine finish, sounds pretty incredible right? I found when wearing Goddess it was very hard wearing and lasted me 6 days until it started chipping, it's claims are true that it doesn't fade and the super glossy finish was still there even though the polish had started to chip, so it's certainly a strong, long lasting nail polish. As for the shade itself... If your looking for the perfect Peachy Nude nail polish with a warm coral undertone for the Summer then Rimmel's Goddess is perfect, it does look like quite a nude shade in the bottle so I did worry it might be a 'nothing' kind of colour on the nails but after 3 thickish coats it looks lovely.
Overall I do really like this collection and the formula of both the lipstick and the nail polish are amazing. I also think this collection will be great for the upcoming festival season and the shades are just perfect for that kind of vibe.
Do let me know if you would like full in depth reviews of the two products I've featured in this post and I'd love to know if you've picked up any of Kate Moss Urban Bohemian Collection too.
