The packaging isn't the same as the other Kate lipsticks but the same as the usual rimmel lipsticks. They also have the smell of rimmels standard lipsticks which i personally really don't like. The formulation has a shine to it and isn't as pigmented as the matte collection. I personally like matte lipsticks but i still really liked these.
Number 42 is a pale nude, but not one that washes me out. 45 is the nude i was most excited about. I currently am loving dark pink nudes and i am constantly wearing brave by MAC and i thought this looked quite similar. In the packaging it looks a lot darker than on the lips. Although its the 2nd darkest it comes out a lot lighter on the lips. It is the perfect daytime nude and will suit most skin tones. I would recommend a lip liner with both of these if you want them to last. They have the long lasting formulation but if you eat or drink then expect to reapply. The collection consists of 5 lipsticks (one of which is a balm) and 5 nude nail polishes. All under £6 each.
