Model lips: Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipsticks by Rimmel London

title rimmel

After absolutely loving Maybelline’s Color Sensational Vivids lipstick, I have been on a drugstore kick lately. I’ve always been intrigued by the Kate Moss lipstick line from Rimmel London, one, because she’s a supermodel, and two, because, well, she’s a supermodel, so you know that if she wears them, maybe it will make the rest of us look as fab as she does.  That makes sense right?

Anyways, I received two shades, both of which were a bit out of my comfort zone, but like any good model, you have to suck it up and rock it.  It turns out, although the shades weren’t my usual nude or baby pink, I loved them anyways.

The line comes in two finishes, Lasting Finish and Lasting Finish Matte.  You can tell the difference by the colour of the tubes.  The OG formula, Lasting Formula, comes in a black case, and the matte finishes come in a red one.  Both have Kate’s signature on them (minus the Moss part).

Lasting Finish is available in 11 shades and ranges from nudes to pinks to even orange and a colour similar to a black berry. The matte version is available in five different shades, and aside from a nude, are quite darker.

As for the actual product itself, I am super impressed with these.  I received the shades 101 (a mauve pink) in the matte version and 01 (a bold red) in Lasting Finish, which applies super shiny (see photos).  Both smell fabulous (seriously, like cherry Chapstick), and they are just so pigmented and creamy to apply.  They also last quite a while (although with the red shade, 01, I had to apply this often since the colour is high-maintenance).

Overall, I love these lipsticks, but wish that they came out with more colours I would wear.  I’m planning on picking up some nude shades because there are a few in the range, but hello Kate Moss and Rimmel, release a baby pink or something.  If they did, I would be all over that.

Totally off topic, but I just wanted to share a quick NOTD.  My nails have been peeling so I figured I would give them a break.  And by a break I mean apply some Sally Hansen Salon Effect Real Nail Polish Strips.  I’m totally rocking 275 Heartbreaker which comprises of my two current obsessions, hearts and skulls.  Something fun just in time for the weekend!


Have you tried Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish by Kate lipsticks?  What were your thoughts?

Please note, I was sent the products in this post for consideration by the company that handles PR for Rimmel London and Sally Hansen in Canada.  As always, all opinions are my own.
