A New-In Nude

I used to think nude lipsticks were BOR-ING. If I was gonna bother putting lippy on I wanted something to add a bit of impact, like a classic red or bold bright. Otherwise I didn't see the point and just stuck to Burt's Bees if I wanted the natural look. But I've become a bit of a convert since picking up this Bourjois beauty so when my mum got me a Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Nude Collection in 45 (quite possibly the longest name in the history of lipsticks ever) as a little pressy I was excited to try it out because I've been after a glossier nude (seriously, how many times have I said nude already? Sowwee!)

The packaging is pretty, I like the little 'Kate' signature and the lid isn't flimsy so it doesn't come off in my bag and get the lipstick all dusty. The shade looks a lot darker in the bullet than it actually is on the lips but I think it's quite pigmented still.  My lips are naturally quite dark so I have to neutralize them a bit with some concealer before I put this on but I think it's worth the little bit of extra agg because I can completely see the case for nude lips now! They just look plumper and make me feel like a Kardashian (#loser)

I usually only wear matte lipsticks but this is a little glossier which I think is a bit more flattering when you're wearing nude lips. The staying power isn't great, it does need reapplying every hour or so but it's easy enough to do without a mirror! It feels really comfortable to wear as well, the formula's really creamy and not at all drying. It has a really sweet scent which personally I love but it might put some people off!

A lot paler than I'm used to but I'm told it's not as pale IRL as it looks here - sorry, I'm a bit rubbish with photos! I'm quite liking the 60's vibes of this though, I'm looking forward to wearing it this autumn/winter with a cat eye. I wouldn't wear it without a little bit of liner or shadow but I'd like something that I could just put on with super minimal make up so I may keep a lookout for shade 48, which looks quite dark but maybe it might be lighter like this one is when you swatch it! Does anyone have it? Can anyone tell me? Help a girl out haha!

What do you think? Have you tried any of the Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks?
