Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick By Kate Moss #16 : Swatches & Review

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick By Kate Moss #16- Review, Swatches 

Hello pretties <3

I am back today with a fresh summery coral lipstick from one of the most affordable brands in rage right now- the universal favorite Rimmel London lasting finish range by Kate Moss :D

I have been lusting after the huge array and awesome prices of Rimmel lippies ever since they launched in India but yeah of course ours is the last city in which Rimmel was launched -_- and as the lippies specially the kate moss range was almost always OOS at I had almost given up on them but then :D lo and behold! Rimmel came here and since so few people here actually know about the brand so it’s relatively easier to get scandal eyes and kate moss lippies here before they go OOS 

So I picked up 3 for myself among which I present miss 16  *yeah it sounds crappy without a name :-/*

What Rimmel says-

The 1st Lipstick collection created by Kate Moss High intensity colour for up to 8 hours. Formula infused with Black Diamonds, reflects light like never before. Captures all the flair, edge and timelessness of Kate’s unique look.

Price- was Rs 215/- but I got them at 250/- :’(

My take on the product-

The lipstick comes in a black matte tube-like packaging with a Kate Moss's signature on it which lends a classy touch *_* the click-shut cap is very tight which makes it very convenient to take in your handbag without the risk of losing the cap or creating a mess :D

The texture is not really very smooth or creamy or is just about average . It is neither dry nor smooth. And it certainly won’t hydrate your lips and yes it has a tendency of settling in fine lines . So I warn you if you are addicted to MAC lippies this is going to be a tough switch , but then at 250/- its just grumpy of me to complain :P

The pigmentation is good though and the true color shows up in 1-2 swipes on your lips 

The color is a very very fresh summery corally pink which gives a burst of freshness instantly to my face  however it is a color with a certain milkiness to it which will go well with fair-medium complexions and will surely wash out medium-dark complexioned ladies. So please try it on before buying!

The smell is faint and very unobstrusive and fades within moments of application 

The staying power is quite good with 3-4 hours average stay!

Swatch- (in daylight)

On My Lips- (without any gloss or balm applied above or beneath)

The pros of 
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick By Kate Moss #16-

  • Stylish matte black tube packaging with Kate’s pink signature on the cap :D
  • Very tight click cap makes it travel friendly 
  • Good pigmentation and covers lip pigmentation in a couple of swipes!
  • Very pretty summery coral pink color which lends freshness to the face <3
  • Staying power is pretty good 
  • Fragrance fades quickly and is not cloying 
  • Very economical 

The cons of Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick By Kate Moss #16-

  • Not creamy or soft at all 
  • Not moisturizing 
  • I hate their numbering instead of naming 
  • Tendency of settling in fine lines of lips :-/

My rating- 4/5 
Final Verdict :The yummy array of shades, the great pigmentation, recent easy availability, and of course their economical aspect makes Rimmel London Kate Moss lipsticks a must buy <3 <3 they are already sold out online and also at the counters in most cities and no wonder <3 shades ranging from nudes to bright fuchsias you won’t face the point where you don’t want but still have to hurt your pocket when you need a lovely shade! The shade #16 is very fresh, summery pinkish coral which is a must have for girls with lighter complexions. It has been my go-to shade nowadays as I am going through a sick-of-loud-colors phase :D highly recommended!
That’s it for today beauties <3 keep smiling till the next time , byee!!!
