Rimmel London Lasting Finish Kate Moss Lipstick 04 11 12 14 and 15 Review And Swatchs

As you may recall a few posts back (see it here), i got my hands on some Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Moss Collection. I fell in love with how opaque it was, the sweet, but not over powering candy smell, the sleek professional looking tubes and of course the enhancer shade (number 15)! Needless to say i had to get some more.

Right now on ULTA.COM there is a sale where if you are new to the site and spend 10 dollars they will give you 3.50 off. These are $5 dollars each. So that's more than half off for one! Check it out here if your interested! Promo code: 73886. The new shades that i purchased are 04, 11, and 14.

Kate 04 is a very deep dark purple but more on the plum side. It applies evenly and opaquely. It is pigmented just enough so that you dont have to swipe it over your lips over and over, but also if you swipe once you can achive just a little color. It lasts for quite a while. I ate, drank, and lounged around for 5 hours and still had most of the color remaining on my lips. It is not drying, not chalky, and is forgiving of lip flaws. Overall it is just a fantastic drugstore lipstick.

 Kate 14 is a pinky nude. It's the kind of nude that wont wash out your lips and make you look like you just applied concealer as lipstick. If you darker skinned this wont be a nude for you but will come off as a peachy pink. I think depending on how its worn it could look good on any skin color. Keep your lips neutral and your eyes dramatic or vise versa rule applies here. (PS. i always break this rule)

As i mentioned in my previous entry about Rimmel London's Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick, shade 15 when applied under or over lipstick can change the color. Shade 15 is a shimmery gray purple.

15 applied over 14 darkened the color slightly while adding a bit of shimmer to the pinky peach shade.

Sometimes i look at my lipstick collection and make a mental note, ok, no more red. I listen to myself for a while, then a beauty like this comes along and i cant help myself. While i may love every color lipstick, old fashioned red is the color that seems to look the best on me. I love this shade, it reminds me of something Marilyn Monroe would wear. It applies perfectly opaque, doesn't stain my lips (if im wearing lipstick the last thing i want is for it to remain long after its wanted, im looking at you Covergirl), smells sweet, and matches the tube. This is such a classic classy shade.

Overall this collection is a very classy collection. Whether you like dark shades, natural shades, or pop shades this collection has it. If you check out just one, i promise you will fall in love!



Quick Edit- I recently purchased 12, and instead of creating an entirely new blog about it, i figured i would add it here!

This is an orange toned coral. It can lean on the pink side or orange side depending on your skin tone or even the amount of light in the room. It is a very pretty color overall and applies with even coverage. Its not too light in that it shows lip perfections but it is still light enough to be a shade that is a little different than what you would normally find in the drugstore.

    1. Hello, I didn't use one. When I do though I usually go for a clear one like pixi line and prime.
