If anyone (and I highly doubt this) is thinking, "Golly where have you been?" The answer is no where really. I took a mini break from blogging, partly because I had bad roots that were offensive to photograph and partly because I was uninspired.
So why has a matte lipstick inspired me to blog? Because it's pretty darn good.
My first dabble into the Kate Moss range was with the 08 lipstick and I loved it, but I thought it needed a more subtle friend that could be applied without really thinking too much about it, so in came 101.
Like pretty much every lipstick I own, it's a muted blue toned pink, but this one's different, this is matte. It's matte without being too drying and applies a lot better than I expected, I find with a lot of matte lipsticks you end up dragging them and making a big clumpy mess of your mouth, but the Kate Moss formular "glides" on well without making your lips look like you're in need of a scrub.
For £5.49 the staying power is impressive and lasts a few hours and obviously I'm a big fan of the colour, the downside for me is the smell/stench. A lot of people really like the synthetic melon smell which attempts to mask the regular lipstick but for me it's a no - yes I've appointed myself the Simon Cowell of smells for today.
Overall this is a great shade for a decent price and I can see why so many people rave about this range. If I wasn't saving every penny for a holiday I'd definitely be adding more of these to my little synthetic stand.
