Cheap Treats: Rimmel's Kate Lipstick Collection

I love to share Cheap Treats--things I'm crazy about (usually beauty-related) that are fewer than $10See past Cheap Treats here.

Do you wear lipstick? Does it intimidate you? Make you think of old ladies (kidding)

No more worries! I've got just the thing for you: Rimmel's Kate Lipstick Collection. And they're only $5! Kate's line has 7 colors, of which I own four. I was first introduced to these via a blog swap, with a UK blogger. She sent me the nude color, and I was smitten. I patiently waited until the line came to the US and quickly grabbed a few. Via Rimmel's site: Amazing alluring shades developed by Kate for Rimmel. Black Diamond brings incredible new levels of light reflective elements.

Why do these earn the Elle Sees' Cheap Treats Stamp of Approval? Excellent price, great pigmentation, long-lasting for the price and the collection includes the necessary, basic shades every girl needs in her bag:
  • Nude--Wear this with a smokey eye. Or add with a gloss on top--this is a great way to use up those glosses that are really sheer. I've even used it as an eye shadow base in a pinch!
  • Pink--There's a bright fuschia and a pinky pink in the collection, but I chose the dusty rose (that sounds like the color of a pageant dress I wore in the 80s) for my skin tone. It's a great natural-looking pink. I recommend this color for those that are upgrading from chapstick/makeup beginners!
  • Coral--This shade is hard to find because it looks great on everyone and is perfect for summer months. If it's too bright for you, mix with the nude shade to pare it down.
  • Red--I've never, ever found a red that looked flattering on me until this shade. I'm tempted to buy a huge stash of them. Pair this with some curled lashes, and you're all set.

What cheap treats have you been loving lately?

  1. Hey beautiful! I hardly ever come across cheap treats. I ought to hangout with you! I have recently started wearing a bright fuschia which I love. When I first bought it I was reluctant but it's amazing what wearing it around the house for a few days can do to boost your confidence about wearing it out ;)

  13. I honestly haven't seen this brand, I guess I have to pay more attention when I shop! But at these prices I am sure to look for them. I am actually looking for a red lipstick, I am more of a lipgloss kind of girl but think of using lipstick now. Any suggestions on reds??? I know there are some with blue undertones.. maybe they have one?

  21. I have never been one to wear a log of lipstick. I do on occasion but I generally tend to prefer lip gloss.

  23. I saw these at Ulta this past weekend but didn't get any. I wasn't brave enough! They looked so pretty though.

    ReplyDelete
  24. What bright, fun shades! I'm a sucker for Ulta eye shadows -- the colors are so pretty and super saturated, just like higher-end brands.
