The Infamous 107 Lipstick

When I was searching for a dark red lipstick a few years ago, little did I know that I had picked up the infamous 107 lipstick by Kate Moss for Rimmel. Many years down the line, it is still my favourite red lipstick of all time, and I continue to get so many compliments when I wear it! I can only describe this as pure perfection, so keep reading to find out about the product specs!


This lipstick is an iconic dark red with blue hue that is great for whitening teeth. Far from the traditional post box red, this lipstick is a sumptuous dark raspberry red, that I find great for parties and other dressy occasions as it is so distinctive.


The velvety, matt formula is one of the lipstick features that I like the best. The matt texture enhances and intensifies the rich berry red colour but is still creamy and easy to apply.


You can eat, you can drink, and this lipstick hardly seems to budge! For a lipstick, this formula is extremely long lasting, so I don’t feel self conscious wearing this to a dinner party, as I have no doubts that it will still be on my lips when I’m finished.

How to wear


I would recommend prepping your lips with a lip balm prior to applying any matt lipstick as they can be a bit drying without this preparation. After your lip balm has had chance to sink in, use a thin brush with a little of the lipstick, or a complimentary lip pencil, to line your lips. Finally I apply the lipstick all over my lips ensuring that I have a sharp line at the edges.
