Mini Lipstick Haul / Swatches and Review! - NYC Sheer Red and Rimmel London Kate Moss 101

Today I got two new lipsticks from Walmart so I thought I'd show you some photos and do quick first impression reviews of them! The lipsticks I got are NYC Sheer Red and Rimmel London Kate Moss matte lipstick in 101.

NYC "Sheer Red"
I got NYC Sheer Red because after watching emilynoel83's Emily Awards for Lips this year, she named this lipstick as her favourite red lipstick for the 4th year in a row. After watching her videos for a few years now and keep hearing her talk about this lipstick I finally decided to try it out! And it was only $2!

The lipstick is a cool-toned red that is slightly deeper than the average bright red lipstick. As its name claims, it is slightly sheer, but it makes for a more wearable red lip and the colour is buildable.

This lipstick felt really smooth and comfortable on my lips. It wasn't sticky and I didn't notice any scents. My lips felt moisturized and had a slight shine. Overall I really enjoy this lipstick! I may not call in my #1 red, but for days where I want to wear a more subtle red lip I'm sure I'll be reaching for this!

Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipstick "101"

The next lipstick is one I've had my eye on for a little while, and it's 101 from the Rimmel London Kate Moss matte lipstick line. It is a light, cool-toned pink, that has a matte finish. This lipstick is opaque and goes on the lips really nicely.

When I first put this lipstick on I noticed a slight fruity scent, but it didn't bother me at all, I actually liked it! I had been wearing a bit of Burts Bee's lip balm when I applied this and it made application easy. This lipstick didn't feel dry at all on my lips, but that was probably because of the lip balm I had on under it. I usually wear lip balm of some sort under any matte lip though to keep my lips feeling more moisturized! I really love this lipstick and will probably become one of my most used! It's subtle enough to wear as an everyday lip, but still gives the lips a nice colour!

What are some of your favourite lipsticks from the drugstore? I've been expanding my collection lately and would love any recommendations!

  1. Love that Kate Moss color. Ever since I got the Lady Gaga MAC lipstick I have avoided those lighter pinks since it never looked good on me but it looks great on you!
