Today, I am reviewing a lipstick for you: Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in Shade 05. I had read some rave reviews on IMBB about this collection and hence decided to try it out for myself. Read on to find out more.
$5. Prices may vary from store to store.
The 1st Lipstick collection created by Kate Moss High intensity color 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.
My experience with Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Shade 05:
This lipstick comes in a sleek black matte finish packaging. The cap has the Rimmel logo engraved on top and a print of Kate Moss’s signature. The packaging looks quite classy and is sturdy as well. The cap shuts tight and you can easily travel with it in your bag. Since the packaging is completely opaque, you need to look at the bottom of the lipstick to find out which shade it is.
Shade 05 is a beautiful rosy pink shade. It does not have too much of a blue tone and hence will suit most Indianskintones. The shade adds instant brightness to your face and is suitable for both office wear as well as a party night.
Texture, Finish, Pigmentation:
The lipstick glides quite smoothly on the lips and you do not need to tug at it at all. The finish is semi-matte and gives a nice sheen to your lips. The lipstick does not feel drying on the lips and you do not need to apply any lip balm underneath.Shade 05 is quite a pigmented shade. But I have very pigmented lips and hence prefer putting on 2 swipes. Happy to note that layering does not make the application patchy or cakey.
This is not a transfer-proof lipstick and transfers easily on cups and glasses. The product claims to stay put for 8 hrs. It definitely does not stay for that long but it does stay on the lips for 3-4 hrs. It fades evenly and leaves a very light tint behind. Personally, I am fine to reapply my lipsticks whenever the need arises.To summarize, this is a beautiful everyday wear lipstick which has a decent formula and staying power and all this at under 5 dollars. If you do not mind peeking into your compact mirror every now and then for a touchup, you should definitely go for it .
