Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss in 107


About time I’ve actually tried this lipstick. This is the first red shade I actually like and isn’t too right in your face like the Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang. I thought the colour would be a deeper, berry, plum shade. However the colour payoff makes up for it. One swipe and it’s very pigmented, opaque but leaves a nice stain on the lips after it fades. You can lightly dab it on to give a stain look if you wanted to. It has cool undertones and it will flatter most skin tones. It brings warmth to your face without washing it out.

The formula is creamy and applies smoothly. Hard to outline the lips without a lipliner. The lipstick smudges easily after it’s applied yet lasts a good 4/5 hours after blotting. The colour does come off a bit after eating and drinking but I guess that’s normal. It doesn’t really give a matte finish, more of a semi matte, satin finish. I have applied this over lip balm and had found that it clings onto the dry patches. Scrubbing the lips beforehand is definitely needed. It is a tad drying over the hours even after a good lip balm.

I do like the packaging. Bright red and stands out in my lipstick collection. I’m not too keen on the floral, fruity smell as it smells quite artificial and is overpowering but that doesn’t put me off using it. The smell will fade afterwards. I would wear this during spring and summer. I do recommend this shade and the lipstick itself but if your lips are very dry, I wouldn’t say that this is a good one for you due to the formula.

Have you tried any of the lipsticks from this collection?
