Review | Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick 08

Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick by Kate Moss - 08 review and swatch

Hello! Yet another lip product review for you today - this time a cheaper one that the likes of NARS! Rimmel’s lipsticks are fantastic, and the lasting finish range, by Kate Moss (£5.49) are some of the best in the whole drugstore. I own 5 from the range, but the one I haven’t been able to put down for several months is the shade 08. The packaging for this range is simple, sturdy and with Kate’s signature on the lid and the shade number and colour at the bottom of the lipstick.

The formula is lovely and creamy, it glides on the lips and does a good job of not accentuating any dry bits. I find this the kind of lipstick that is fuss free and its kinda like a ‘grab and go’ lippie.  You don’t need to really make sure they’re prepped like you would with matte lips, and I don’t find this drying after it has faded away. That’s probably the main reason why this has lived in my makeup bag and gone about with me everywhere for quite a while!  The downside is that despite the name, it’s not exactly long lasting. I get about 3 and a half hours of wear from this before I need to reapply. For the shade and formula, plus how easy it is to reapply I can forgive the lasting power - it’s just a shame they claim it to be longlasting!

The colour itself is a stunning dusty rosy pink with a tinge of mauve and looks so flattering on warm skintones, as well as cool! It’s just beautifully flattering and the kind of shade that works no matter the occasion. It’s also the kinda lipstick that I can just pull out and swipe on just before work, uni or a coffee with a friend - and I don’t even need a mirror.

Final Verdict:

Rating: 9

Pros: A gorgeous everyday mauvy rose colour, universally flattering, creamy, non-drying, affordable, functional sturdy packaging, pigmented.

Cons: Not really all that long lasting. But that’s about it, I couldn’t ask for more from a lippie of this price.

Repurchase? Yes!

Have you tried any lipsticks from the Kate lasting finish line?
