Testing: the Rimmel lipsticks

This time, I chose my two Rimmel lipsticks to review for you. 
One is from the Kate Matte collection in 113 and the other one is the Moisture Renew in 700 Nude Delight. 
I have a small obsession for nude lipsticks so whenever I read about a new trend, I do some research and I go out and buy them :) I was immediately appealed to the matte finish of the red packaged lipstick, however.. I have to say... I am disappointed.

Mac Making Pretty Collection

Mac Making Pretty Collection 
I heard about this collection online via numerous makeup gurus. Unfortunately where I live in Europe, we have to wait until February for Mac to launch its makeup line Making Pretty. I have already decided I want to buy the lipstick in 3N. A bit of a weird name, but gorgeous packaging and a real nice nude colour. I heard that for some people, it washes you out a little bit and you are supposed to wear a lipliner with it to make it work. I have a number 7 lipliner designed by makeup artist Lisa Eldridge in Nude that I would use with that lipstick (twist up pen), or Mac lipliner in Subculture would also be a great alternative.  
The prices are slightly higher than the normal collection, but maybe the rose gold packaging justifies the higher cost? ;)
A lot of the Mac shops in America have already sold out, but for us, it is still waiting patiently for their collection to be launched in Mac stores... :) 
Happy holidays!
