Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipstick Collection

Faaaye gone cray cray over these lippies from Rimmel London. I was never ever a lipstick person, I'm more on lip balms and lip tints. I only use lipstick for special occasion or whenever I just feel like it. I once saw this collection from a youtube guru which didn't influence me to buy one. But one day, it was Anzac Day here at NZ, I was looking around the mall - shopping, I found a great $10 deal on these lippies at Farmers. So, I swatch the colors and bought the shades that I like. I only bought 4 shades first, but when I tried it on my lips for a day, I fell in love with the pigmentation, scent and color. I couldn't help but grab some other shades, which led me to these bunch of colors.

The Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick has 3 different kinds of collection: Lasting Finish by Kate Moss, Kate Spring Lipstick Collection and Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss.

Lasting Finish by Kate Moss and Kate Spring Lipstick Collection
Lasting Finish by Kate Moss and Kate Spring Lipstick Collection
PACKAGING
Both collection comes in sleek black packaging, Rimmel crown logo at the top of the cover and shade number at the bottom. The only difference between the two is that, Lasting Finish has color red Kate signature on the cover while the Spring Collection has color pink Kate signature.

CONSISTENCY
I love how pigmented the colors are. It has a creamy texture but leaves a satin finish on the lips, semi-matte and no shimmer which sounds perfect for me! According to Rimmel's website the Lasting Finish has Black Diamonds infused into the formula which make it reflect into the light. Meanwhile the Spring Collection will make you stand out by giving you an instant pout. Lovely? Isn't it?

APPLICATION
It glides on smoothly into the lips whether you lip balm prep or not, but I do recommend to do so. I usually apply 2-3 layers to get the lip color that I want. It claims a high intensity color up to 8 hours which I don't think it's possible for any lipstick type or brand. It honestly last on me for about 4 hours including drinking and eating. In addition, it has a very nice and pleasant smell for me - sweet, fruity, bubble gum'ish kind.

SHADES and SWATCHES
Upon choosing and buying, I always make sure that I have different range of color (nude, coral, peach, pink, red) from their collection. Lasting finish has 10 available shades while Spring collection has 5. 

These are the colors that stands out the most for me. 
Lasting finish by Kate Moss (05 - 12 - 14) ... Kate Spring Lipstick Collection (16 - 19 - 20)
(L-R) Shade Number: 05 - 12 - 14 - 16 - 19 - 20 
05 - Medium pink color.
12 - Coraly orange color.
14 - Nude mauve color.
16 - Light pink peachy color.
19 - Medium peach with light red under tone color.
20 - Bright pink color.

Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss

PACKAGING
An eye catching sleek red packaging with color black Kate signature on the top cover, Rimmel crown logo at the top and shade number at the bottom as well.

CONSISTENCY
Definitely has an opaque color coverage, creamy texture but leaving no shimmer, velvety matte finish on the lips. Consist with Ruby Powder formula that enhance color intensity and probably it has a formula that makes it superbly smooth and lightweight.

APPLICATION
With its intense color quality, 1-2 layers of application is enough to achieve the desired shade color. It is beautiful on the lips and I'm so obsessed with the colors that I've got. When you first apply it, its kinda moist and shinny but as minutes passed by it will stay on the lips, matte. Its not drying, glides on smoothly making it very easy to apply and very comfortable to wear.

SHADES and SWATCHES
I personally prefer dark colors for matte lipsticks, for me it looks voluptuous when you're wearing deep colors and its matte. This collection has 10 available shades but for some reason here in NZ they only have 6 shades in stores. The only color that I didn't pick up is #113.

Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss 
(L-R) Shade number: 103 - 106 - 107 - 111(Kiss of Life) - 112
103 - Warm pink color.
106 - Dark pink color with bluish undertone.
107 - Dark red purply color.
111 - Bright red color with orange undertone.
112 - Dark reddish brown color.


***All in all I absolutely love this lipstick collection, very nice pigmentation, wearable, not heavy on the lips and not drying. Fantastic quality for such an affordable price. RRP: NZD $12-16, it depends where you buy it, available at Farmers, Warehouse and K-Mart.

That's it for now, hope you find this helpful. Feel free to comment down below. Take care and stay pretty girls! xoxo

Love,
Faye
