Brand: Rimmel 芮谜
Range: Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick
Shades: 3, 16, 19, 20, 22, 26
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Following the success of Kate Moss’s debut lipstick collection, 6 new shades of Lasting Finish Lipstick have been added to the range that’s lighter and fresher than the original collection.
  • The long-lasting creamy colour is infused with light-reflecting black diamond, adding depth and intensity to the pigmented finish.
  • Kate says, “Whilst I’ll always have my favourite timeless shades, I love to update my lipstick to reflect the new season’s style. I wanted to play with fresh and daring colour to create a look that’s fun and feminine but with an edge.”
  • In contrast to the debut shade range, the new collection features 4 neutral shades out of the 6.  I’m particularly pleased to see the addition of #20 and #22 to the shade range, as fuchsia and classic red were noticeably missing from the last collection.
  • The grip in the creamy texture hugs lips & lines very snugly, so be sure to wear over a smoothing and moisturising lip balm for best results.
  • The chic, matte black packaging with Kate’s signature & embossed Rimmel logo is one of the best packaged drugstore lipsticks I’ve seen to date.
  • Verdict:  Fuchsia and red were among the shades that swatched the smoothest, but the nudes (in particular #03 and #26) needed extra time to smooth out streaks. That said, the pigment and coverage is impressive for its price point & I also love the fact that you don’t need any lip liner for a flawless finish.

    i absolutely love these lipsticks after discovering then from your blog! how did you find the scent of the newer shades? I thought that they had aq bit of a weird scent that i didnt like ): but the shades are amazing!XD

    • Yishan says:

      They smell/taste about the same as the other Rimmel shades to me. I tend to layer these lipsticks over a scented lip balm also (eg. Carmex or Maybelline Baby Lips) which probably helped masked the lipstick scent.

    I heard number 16 was discontinued. Do you know a cheap dupe or similar lipstick, thank you.

  6. […] to my other Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipstick swatches (Part 1 and Part 2), today I have the Matte Lipstick which comes in a total 6 matte shades in a new matte red […]

  7. I bought shade 3 today. Really liked the swatch on my hand but on my lips it looks like I’ve put concealer on 🙁

    Thankfully it was cheap – I got $3 off at Priceline.

  8. I tried again today and it wasn’t as horrible but it certainly didn’t look great. I ended up putting a pale pink gloss over the top to give it some more warmth and shine. Sigh!
