Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte Collection Lipstick by Kate Moss 109: Review Swatch and LOTD

Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte Collection Lipstick by Kate Moss 109: Review Swatch and LOTD by Nisha

Uff.. Such a long name, right? I saw the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in the shade 109 in a YouTube video for the first time. The blogger was singing praises of the color and finish of the lipstick. I knew then that I have to get it. But unfortunately it was not available in any store at Chennai or any Indian online stores. I saw that it was available in websites like Amazon but at an exorbitant price. So when my husband announced his short trip to US for work, I decided to get it for sure. I gave him the name and shade name written and he got it for me! I was so happy that day. But wait… did it fulfill my expectations? Let me tell you.

Packing and Price

The packing is quite attractive. I don’t see many drugstore lipsticks with such a vibrant colored holder. It has a matte red outer cover and a glossy black body inside the cap. The packing is quite travel-friendly, it doesn't open by itself even if I carelessly toss it in my bag. The Rimmel emblem is shown on the top of the cap. The shade number is printed on the label at the bottom of the holder. These lipsticks do not have any names only numbers.

My husband told me that he got it from a super market in New Jersey for $7. I see different prices in different online stores. So I am not sure about the exact price. But from what I have seen it can cost you anywhere between $5 - $8 for 4g. It has a shelf life of 30 months.

 REVIEW

The shade of the lipstick is orangey-coral. In the YouTube video I saw it almost like a reddish coral, so I was actually a bit disappointed with the color. However, it is a nice color but very tricky at the same time. It shows well on me when I wear full face makeup but washes me out a bit when I am without any face makeup. It is not a completely matte lipstick. It has a creamy semi matte texture which glides smoothly without any tugging. It is highly pigmented and on my arm it turns opaque in one swipe. Anyhow, on my pigmented lips it is a completely different story. It shows well in the first swipe but does not apply evenly. I have to use a lip brush to get an even application or take some time and effort to apply it evenly. A good thing is that it doesn't settle into the fine lines.

It is not a hydrating lipstick so applying a lip balm before using it, is essential. Another downside of the lipstick is its staying power. If there is no meals or snacks in between it stays put for around 3-4 hours but fades. However, if I have any snacks or meals or even drinks in between it is gone! I have to reapply it. Being a drugstore lipstick maybe I should not expect more from it but I would have been happier if it applied evenly on my lips. It has a fruity fragrance which doesn't linger for a long time after application.

I am quite disappointed with this lipstick, may be because the reviews I have read about this lipstick or the videos on YouTube were misleading. However I think it will be a nice color on fair to medium skin tones.

Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating
3/5

Will not repurchase it for sure.

Hope you liked my review. Waiting for your comments to see what you think about my post and the lipstick reviewed.

Love,
Nisha
