Product specifics

The lipsticks are available in 4g tubes. The packaging is really cute – they come in a red opaque tube with Kate Moss’s signature on the cap. The Kate Moss line does not have names for the lipstick shades but just numbers. There is a rose fragrance to the lipstick but is not too overwhelming.

The Beauty Mantra opinion

I am currently obsessed with matte lipsticks. I have never fancied them so much previously and always liked either creamy or glossy formulas. Also, I keep checking out for products that promise to be long lasting as it makes it a best option for work. I am not one of those people who top up regularly. And that’s not because I am against topping up, but I tend to forget!! When at work, I somehow get so engrossed in what I am doing that I forget to make sure I am presentable at all times.

The first thing that caught my eye at the drugstore was the cute packaging of Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte Lipsticks by Kate Moss. The red opaque tubes somehow make it look polished and high end. I picked up two colours that would brighten up my outfits at work – 106 which is a neon rose pink and 107 which is a reddish plum/oxblood colour.

 The Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte Lipsticks are super pigmented. They stain the lips perfectly. Yes, they are matte and do not highlight creases or flakes on the lips. I have seen some matte lipsticks that just make the lips look all flaky. It is always a good idea to scrub the lips before using matte lipsticks as the product then glides on smoothly. It does appear a bit dry when applied but I guess that’s just the matte look. It, however, did not make my lips feel dry.

I have tested both the lipsticks for some days and must say – boy, do they last longer!! I have applied them in the mornings and could still find my lips stained till the end of the workday. The lip colour does get lighter after eating but most of other lipsticks just disappear from my lips after lunch time. I eat them, completely! But these matte lipsticks stay longer and are such a boon for people like me.

Both the colours I picked up are quite dark and draw focus to the face. They brighten a dull outfit and are perfect for work. I even had a colleague ask me if I had done something to my face as I looked radiant – all that was different that day was my lip shade! If you are on a hunt for a matte lipstick that really stays longer, I highly recommend the Kate Moss Matte Lipstick line to you.

The things I loved about the Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte Lipsticks by Kate Moss are:

  • Highly pigmented – These lipsticks are so pigmented that they stain the lips
  • Long lasting – They sure will stay at least until lunch time – guaranteed!  
  • Not drying – They do not dry the lips as such, but may appear dry. Not really a biggie but if you are someone who hates that kind of a look then I would suggest to top it up with a lip balm or gloss
  • Cute packaging – Packaging looks quite high end
  • Reasonably priced – Definitely an advantage. It could mean you can purchase the entire line (not many – it’s just 6)!

Would I repurchase the product?

Yes, I have to go back to the store for the other shades!
