Review: Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Lipsticks

More lipstick posts! A quick review of Rimmel's Lasting Finish by Kate lipsticks. For those looking for a creamy lipstick that doesn't tug on the lips, I highly suggest you look into these. These lipsticks feel buttery and smooth when you put them on and settle into a satin finish that doesn't settle into lines or slip around. The scent is not as offensive as their Moisture Renew lipsticks, rather it is the same scent as their Lasting Finish Intense lipsticks (the dark purple packaging). 

The lasting power of this lippies depends on the color. The red will stain lips. The other two have an average staying time of 4 hours on me, less if I eat or drink. Again the staying power will differ from person to person. If you are looking for a lipstick with infallible staying power, check this one off your list.

The packaging is black and sleek, giving it an expensive feel. Kate's signature resides on the cap in a bold red to add a bit of pizazz. I definitely prefer this packaging compared to their flashy purple Moisture Renew lipsticks.

01- Claimed to be Kate's favorite, I feel this red is universal. Not for the faint of heart, one swipe provides an opaque deep color. When I don't want such a dramatic look, I lightly dab this on my lips for a stained effect.

08-I love this shade! It's the perfect everyday shade. This is just a tad pinker than my natural lip color and goes perfect with both a neutral and smokey eye.

14- Is the nude of the entire line. While it mutes pigmented lips, it does not create the "dead" or concealer effect. It leans more beige than pink. For those who like milkier pinks, this may not be the right nude for you.

-Relatively inexpensive ($5.99 to $7.99 USD)
-Sleek packaging
-Smooth application
-Opaque enough for pigmented lips

-Only 7 shades
-Some may not enjoy the smell
-May be hard to find in certain areas
