|Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick – Shade 19
£5.49 from Superdrug & Boots
This is undoubtedly my most worn lipstick, it’s my go-to shade and one that I wear nearly every single day. In fact, I actually have three tubes of this at all times. One for my handbag, one for my make up bag and one spare… just in case. Excessive maybe, but I just think this is the perfect shade for me and I’m kind of surprised I’ve not raved about it more often.
The shade itself is a slightly brownish nude with a splash of pink which makes it one of those great “my lips but better” shades that suits most skin tones. It’s not too bold but not understated either. The formula is incredibly creamy, which is one of the reasons I love this product, but boasts great staying power and fantastic pigmentation. The colour is buildable, but usually one coat is perfect and it won’t stain your lips. The finish isn’t quite matte but I wouldn’t call it glossy either, at first it has a slight sheen but this soon fades. When using this lipstick I rarely notice any bleeding or feathering and I find it lasts best with a fine coat of translucent powder in between two coats of product.
Like most of the Rimmel products this lipstick is slightly scented (I find that they smell like melon, but I don’t know about anyone else!) so if you’re not too keen on the fragrance then it could be something to consider. I for one quite like it but it’s not a deal breaker for me anyway. I also find that this lipstick isn’t completely transfer resistant, but it does fare quite well in comparison to some other drug store brands.
I really like the other lipsticks from this range too and have quite a collection of them, but this is definitely my favourite of the lot. If you’re after a subtle, every day lipstick to finish off your look then I would seriously recommend this shade – it’s a great high street product!
