Rimmel-Kate-Moss-Lipstick-107-Blog-Post-Swatch
With so many blogs out there and Youtube channels to explore, you can see why it's easy to fall for the hype when products are splashed across our news feeds. This was the case with the Kate Moss for Rimmel Lipstick in 107 around this time last year. I bought it.... and unlike many others I hated it. 
I don't really go for a bold dark lip. I've mentioned before I usually go for peachy pinks, so this was way out of my comfort zone. At the time of purchasing I had a different hair colour. Really dark brown... pair that with a dark lip and I felt I looked a bit gothic. Therefore the 107 lipstick got stashed away in a drawer and forgotten about. Fast forward nearly a year and I've dug it out of the depths again to give it a another try.. and the verdict? I love it! 

With my lighter hair colour I am able to wear this lipstick with a little more confidence than before. I also changed the way I apply it, which I feel makes a big difference. This lipstick is quite messy to apply straight from the bullet, so a lip brush is necessary. Instead of packing the colour on so it's quite heavy, I use just enough to ensure I have a good coverage of the berry shade on my lips. Blot with a tissue and then with a light hand, go over it again. This results in the look above. An obvious bold lip without being too striking.  

It just shows that sometimes there are products out there that deserve a second chance. Whether it be a change in hair colour, or perhaps you aren't as religious with your fake tanning regime anymore. Try it again and it may work for you. If it doesnt, pass it on to someone who may appreciate it more or sell in a blog sale.

Are there any products you've revisited & managed to make it work for you?

Much Love,
