New In: Rimmel Shades of Black Collection by Rita Ora

It's that time of year where the brands we love release all the vampy, dark lippies and eyeshadows we can't get enough of, in time for Halloween. And Rimmel are no exception! This year they've teamed up with Rita Ora to create the 'Shades of Black' collection.

The first addition to the collection are the 'Oh My Gloss' lipglosses in three new shades. There is a deep burgundy red shade called 'Desire', a navyish blue shade 'Moonlight' and a pure black shade called 'Rita's Black'. These claim to be a non sticky, and highly pigmented formula. I would certainly agree than they aren't sticky or gross feeling on the lips. However, the shade Moonlight lacks the pigmentation for me. No matter how many layers it just looks patchy and meh on the lips. The other two shades are both fully opaque and stunning though.

Next up is their 'Wonder'fully Real Mascara' in Extreme Black and believe me, when they say extreme black, that's exactly what they meant! This is quite a wet formula so can be messy if you don't take your time. For me, this added more length than it did volume, but managed to look natural. It also is great for separating your lashes and coating hard to reach places as the wand is pretty flexible. The only thing I would say is if you add too many layers, it will get a tad clumpy.

Finally, we have a handful of new nail polishes, six to be precise. The collection consists of one matte polish, and 5 deep and darker colours. The three I have are 'Matte Black', 'Midnight Ting' which is a deep navy blue and 'Darkest Desires' which is a very dark, plum red.. Honestly, I've tried a lot of matte polishes, and never been impressed with them. But this one has totally shocked me. It dries down completely matte and opaque! The other two polishes are also highly pigmented with Midnight Ting being my favourite shade of the two.
