Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Collection by Kate Moss - Rimmel Spring 2012

Rimmel's Spring Collection features five new shades of the Lasting Finish Lipsticks, created by Kate Moss. The prices range from $4.49 to $5.99 depending on where you buy them from. Like the other lasting finish lipsticks, these too have a semi-matte finish and a slight sweet scent. The colors are quite pigmented and go on smooth, provided you don't have overly dry/chapped lips. A good lip balm makes the job easier and keeps the color looking moist.





01 - A deep brick Red - Gorgeous, opaque red that goes on smooth as satin. This one did feel slightly more moisturizing than the other two. One of the must-have shades from this range.
14 - A sheer nude - This one felt a little dry and also went on a little patchy on my lips. With a lip balm, it wore slightly better. The color looks pretty nice in the tube but, tends to wash me out big time. Not something I would recommend if you have very pigmented lips.
08 - A dusty Rose - A safe, everyday shade with a slight mauve undertone. Something that needs very less effort and looks really nice worn by itself or with a gloss over.It goes on a little more pink than how it looks on the tube.
L-R : 14, 01, 08

Top to Bottom : 08, 14, 01

These lipsticks can be quite drying when worn alone but, they also tend to last longer. I get about 6 hours of wear time from them. Shade number 01 lasts even longer and leaves a berry stain before fading. A shade or two is worth a pick up but, keep in mind that they can be quite drying and tend to enhance flaky lips even more. Nothing a good lip balm and a little prep work can't fix.

  1. I have 12 and 14, and I really like both colors. I find that these don't last as long as I'd like, but I'm still quite happy with them.

    1. I'm so glad you like 14! It washes me out like anything. Maybe I should use it as a base for nude lipsticks :)
