Lasting Finish by Kate Lipsticks* hit my desk, I knew it was going to be something worth writing about.
The four colors I got were Pink Nude 041, Tan Nude 043, Rose Nude 045, and Brandy Nude 047. This is my first time trying out lipsticks from the Rimmel x Kate Moss collab, and after testing these out, I have to say they’re a fantastic drugstore option. The colors are gorgeous and work for all kinds of makeup looks. I’ve been wearing a lot of Pink Nude and Rose Nude – both are perfect for everyday wear, and work well with my skin tone.
The formula for these lipsticks is pretty good in comparison to other drugstore brands. They can be a little streaky when first using them, but once you apply a full layer they are completely opaque. I didn’t have to use a lip balm before applying these, and they don’t make my lips feel dry which is a huge plus. They tend to last a few hours at a time without me needing to reapply. Also, these are a satin finish, so they’re creamy without being overly glossy.
All in all, I think these are a great new release. The packaging is super adorable, they offer great color payoff, and they’re super versatile.
Have you tried these lipsticks out yet? Which shade is your favorite?
