Review: Rimmel “Lasting Finish by Kate” (colour 08)
April 25, 2013 § 6 Comments
Here we have one of my makeup bag essentials!
I didn’t used to be much of a fan of lipstick, but after buying this one, I’m in love! I’ve been slowly falling in love with Rimmel’s products for a while now. They’re really good quality and last well, but at around half the price of a lot of other brands, I feel a lot of Rimmel products are way better value for money. After about 20 minutes of dithering in the shop, I decided to go for it and get this pink shade.
Rating: ☺☺☺☺☺ (5/5 happy faces)
Staying power: ☺☺☺☺☻(4/5)
Price: £5.49 (Boots)
Would I buy this again?: Yes
This lipstick is a lovely, slightly matte (with a very slight sheen). It’s a warm pink with orangey-yellow undertones which makes it great for my skin tone. I think this is a great day-colour – it’s quite natural but still gives a bit of a blush of colour to your face and looks very feminine and pretty.
(Pictures of it on my lips below!)
It’s got quite a creamy texture and isn’t at all drying on my lips. It isn’t heavy or sticky either; in fact when I’m wearing it, I hardly notice at all. Once blotted, it stays on really well and doesn’t rub off much (although it clings to glasses when you drink). I’ve worn this during the day quite a few times now and for me it’s lasted at least 3-4 hours until it fades a little, although the colour is still there after that and refreshes really well. It is perfumed but it’s quite a gentle smell and isn’t at all overpowering or unpleasant.
Here’s some pictures of my lips naked and with it on –

Sorry I couldn’t get better pictures, my camera just doesn’t show the colour as well as I wish it could! But because I felt like my lips were pretty, here’s another picture of my lips with it on:
All I need now is to find a liner that works well with it! The only negative I can really find is that Rimmel don’t have a brand of matching liners available, but I’m sure there will be something I can find.
- doesn’t make lips feel dry
- good staying power
- not too strongly perfumed
- great day colour
- no branded matching liner
I just utterly love this lipstick! The colour and the lipstick itself are perfect for me. I’ll definitely be buying from this line again and I’m looking forward to extending my adventures into lip colouring products!
