Brit drugstore brand recently released a new collection of lipsticks called The Kate Collection.
No, not the Duchess of Cambridge but the Lady Kate of Croydon.
" FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR FAVOURITE SHADE, THERE ARE 7 TO CHOOSE FROM.

Get ready to fall in love with your new signature colour that capture all the flair, edge and timelessness of Kate’s unique look."Nunu sez:
I believe these have been spotted in US pharmacies like CVS already, however, there is still no sign of them in Canada. Again I got mine from my friendly Brit smuggler Vicky.
I have shade 05 - a bright corally pink.
There's really no difference in formula between these Kate lipsticks and the usual Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks. They have the same weird smell and the same neither drying nor particularly moisturising formula.
It glides on easily, is nicely pigmented and lasts a good 4 hours between meals.
It is also thankfully free of the annoying glitter/shimmer that some of the Lasting Finish lipsticks have.
I don't quite recall how much I paid for mine, perhaps 5 quids? Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks are usually about $6 in Canada and regularly go on sale at London Drugs for $2.99.
Buy if you're a Kate fan, it's on sale, or you're in need of a nice bright coral lippy and have no aversion to weird scents.
