The British brand Rimmel produces rather good mass market products, which are highly praised on the Internet. So choosing my lipstick, I decided to try the Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss in color 103.
Nt Wt - 4 gr
Made in Great Britain
Design and packaging: red tube with “Kate” caption and black strip of the name of the brand. The lipstick closes with a click.
I want to note that the material of the product is of good quality, the plastic isn’t easily soiled and looks very presentable.
The texture is soft and velvet, the pigmentation is insane. The coverage is good from the first layer.
The finish isn't totally matte and a bit wet. It’s very comfortable I don’t feel it on my lips during the day. You can easily use it without a lip balm, as the product doesn’t dry lips at all.
The color is a bit toned down, not saturated, but beautiful. Cold shade of pink, looks rather harmonious for parties as well as in everyday life. Covers my lips totally
The lipstick is a long-wear one. Being not of a very bright color, it stays on my lips during the day. For comparison here is a collage of two photos. The first - just after I applied the lipstick and the next is after 4 hours and a cup of coffee:
The product faded slightly between my lips. But it didn’t flow out the edges and the color waned a bit. Usually such colors stay for an hour max, but here I’m completely delighted with the result
As for disadvantages sometimes this product can define dryness on the lips (which I have really rarely) and settle in the lip lines. But still the disadvantages are not very explicit so for me it’s okay, considering the fact that we speak about the mass market product.
In general, what can I say about the advantages:
- well pigmented, gives coverage from the first layer
- really a pro-long wear lipstick
- doesn’t flow out the edges
- comfortable, doesn't dry my lips
- beautiful color
- good packaging
- it’ll define peeling parts on very dry lips
- sometimes can make lip cracks more visible
Price 4-5 $
Total look with makeup on.
Based on all pros and cons I do recommend Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss as a worthy mid-end lipstick
Thanks for your attention:)
