REVIEW: Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick (with swatches)

Rimmel London teamed up with supermodel Kate Moss to create the new collection of lipsticks Kate Lasting Finish. I’ve got my hands on three of them which I will be reviewing for you guys!

The packaging is pretty standard, but I like the touch of personality that Kate Moss gave to them by putting her signature on the lid. The first thing I noticed was that, unfortunately, the lipsticks don’t have names, which makes it quite boring to refer to them by their numbers, but never mind!

I picked up shades #03, #08 and #01, and what they all have in common is the incredible pigmentation and soft feel that they leave on the lips. I do, however, found that if applied on bare lips, it can accentuate any dry or flaky areas you may have. So if you have dry lips, make sure you apply a clear lip balm before applying the lipstick for better results.

Shade #03 is a matte pink nude with a slight hint of brown to it. This shade is a definite must-have in everyone’s makeup bag; it’s the perfect nude shade – not too nude, not too pink.

Shade #08 is a matte plum with a hint of pink, a bit darker than #03, but not a full-on plum lipstick. So if you are going for the subtle autumn/fall look, this is your shade.

Shade #01 is a matte hollywood red. This is Kate’s signature lipstick, and it’s also the one she chose to wear to last night’s Rimmel London Party where she presented her new collection to the public. I must say I’m impressed with this shade – it’s so pigmented and the staying power is incredible!

And that is all I have for now, girls! I hope you all enjoyed this review and let me know on the comment box below what is your favourite shade of the Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish collection :)

  • The shade number 3 looks totally different on you than me. It looks kinda brownish & orange on me. I do love the way it looks on you though, it’s a really nice colour. :)

    Shade 8 is also a pretty colour and looks great. x

  • I love shade #3! I don’t think Rimmel is cruelty-free, I would have loved to check them out though ):

  • I have shade 14 and 01. 01 the red is absolutely my favorite red out there. Its so pretty, and does’t have any of that shimmer nonsense in it.

  • I agree. I hate it when they ruin a great lipstick with lots of shimmer. The red is my all time favourite red as well :) x
