Hello everyone! 🙂
Yesterday, I realised that I haven’t done a ‘Gotta Love’ post in ages, so I thought ‘What is something that I’ve been loving recently?’ It didn’t take me long to realise that I’ve been wearing red lipstick almost every day and that it’s been the same lipstick every time. So, naturally, I had to make a post about it so here it is!
The lipstick I’m talking about is the Rimmel Kate Moss Long Lasting Lipstick in the shade 111 or ‘Kiss Of Life’. I’ve discovered this one a long time ago, but have only recently went out and bought it. It was on sale, I needed a red lipstick so I went with this one. And the moment I put it on, I fell in love.
The shade is incredible! It’s the perfect red shade for me, I’d say, and that’s a huge thing, since I do have a difficult skin tone to match. It’s a perfect red, in my mind – not too dark, but not too light. (and orange, as most light reds have that orange-y feel)
It reminds me a bit of ‘Kiss Me, You Fool’ Provocalips shade, actually.
Also, it has quite a matte finish, which I really like, but it can be a bit drying, so I make sure that I always apply lip balm before and use a lip scrub afterwards.
As for the formula, OH MY GOSH. It’s lasts a heck of a long time! Even when I eat and drink and talk, it stays in place. The intensity stays! I’ve even gotten compliments about that: ‘How does your lipstick look untouched?’
As I mentioned, it can be quite drying, but that can be dealt with, by using a bit of lip balm before and a lip scrub after. 🙂
Also, I found it so easy to apply. Easier than some more ‘natural’ colours, actually!

Only because it is a bit drying.
It’s really intense, definitely an eye-catcher.
Long lasting? 10/10
You can eat & drink without worrying about your lipstick disappearing.
This is my definition of a perfect lipstick. Also, it’s highstreet, so it’s not expensive!
I definitely recommend this to anyone searching for that perfect red lipstick. 😉
