Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 111: The Perfect Red?

   I've always wanted to try the Rimmel Kate Moss line of lipsticks, so when I was gifted this particular one, I was really happy. I've just heard so many good things about this range and it intrigued me to see if it would really live up to it's reputation. And I must admit, I loved it.

 Rimmel's Kate Moss Lipstick in 111 is a gorgeous true red, matte lipstick. I'm a big fan of matte lipsticks (I'm not big on glossiness), but I am aware that they can be quite drying. What I love about this is that it is not drying at all. I don't have to layer it on lip balm , which is quite relieving. And surprisingly enough, it lasts a good 3-4 hours on me. 

 The colour itself is a true, true red and it's one of those colours that will suit just about anyone. I've been wearing this so much lately with some barely there eyeshadow and loads of mascara every time I go somewhere I can get away with red lipstick. Honestly, sometimes I wish I could wear red lipstick to college, but I'm just not brave enough.
 Unfortunately, you can't get this exact one in India yet, but Rimmel counters do sell some of the older editions of the Kate Moss lipsticks -the ones with the black and pink packaging. I believe they are sold for around 250-300 bucks (don't quote me on that, though!) but the shade range is shamelessly limited. All we can do is pray to the Rimmel gods to release more of these lipsticks here as soon as possible.
