I want more lipstick, moaaarr!!
I loove me some Rimmel lipsticks. They have some of the best lipstick formulas in the drugstore and they consistently introduce new shades and new lines with the same creamy and pigmented formula. Today I will be reviewing 6 lipsticks from their line, ‘Lasting Finish by Kate.’ The two red tubes are from their ‘matte’ collection, the two black from their ‘regular’ collection and the two nude one from their ‘nude’ collection. According to their website, these lipsticks are:
“The 1st Lipstick collection created by Kate Moss High intensity colour for up to 8 hours. Formula infused with Black Diamonds, reflects light like never before. Captures all the flair, edge and timelessness of Kate’s unique look. (< the description for the ‘regular’ line)
Ruby Powder enriched formula. Intense velvet colour all day! (< the description for the ‘matte line’) “
High intensity colour? For up to 8 hours?? Infused with BLACK DIAMONDS and RUBY POWDER?!?! Sounds like my kind of lipstick!! Although ‘infused with black diamonds’ and “ruby powder’ sounds a bit questionable haha what percentage of the lipstick is actually black diamonds and ruby powder? We will never know.
All of lipsticks are housed in a sleek red, black or nude tube with Kate’s signature on it.They all have the signature slight fruity Rimmel lipstick scent. All of the lipsticks are very creamy, pigmented and comfortable on the lips. They are very long wearing and will remain as beautiful and pigmented on your lips as when you first applied it, until you have a drink or a bite to eat. Retouching is definitely necessary after a meal and it is not transfer proof. Each line is supposed to have a different finish but in my experience with them, the ‘matte collection’ and the ‘regular collection’ both have the same velvety finish and the ‘nude’ collection has a very creamy satin (aalmost glossy but not quite) finish .
❤ Excellent pigmentation
❤ Long lasting
❤ Great range of colours
❤ Affordable – about $4 USD
❄ The ‘matte collection’ and the ‘regular collection’ both have the same velvety finish and the ‘nude’ collection has a very creamy satin finish.They are all beautiful, but it’s not as it’s advertised to be. So if you purchase one from the ‘matte’ collection hoping to get a truly matte lipstick, you will be disappointed.
❄ The nude shades are much more sheer and need 2-3 layers. They are also much more suited for people who don’t have very pigmented lips.
Final thoughts/ Recommend?
All in all I think that the Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick line is excellent. The lipsticks are highly pigmented, long lasting and comfortable on the lips. The only negative is the finish is different than the advertisements claim, but if you don’t mind that and you love a good velvety finish then you will love these Lipsticks!
