Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Moss Lipstick in #16

Hello beautiful ladies! How is your week going so far? Do you have any special plans for the weekend? Since we are lucky enough with the weather this afternoon I’ll be going away from town to my boyfriend’s vacation house for a nice little getaway and a few days of yummy BBQs and sunbathing! <3 For today I wanted to talk about a product, which I rediscovered my love with the other day and it is this Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Moss lipstick in #16 ($5,19 / £5,49).

I jumped a little bit late on the Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks bandwagon and I got my very first one last summer after I got tired of reading tons of rave review about them. The reason it took me so long to get my hands on them is because I actually have extremely dry lips and even some high end lipsticks dry them out further, so you may say that I used to be quite picky with my lip product choices. Even though I had heard that the Rimmel ones are fab, in my mind I wasn’t convinced that they are worth risking. One day though, when I was shopping in my local drugstore I saw a girl swatching #16 on her hand and I was like “Wow this is such a gorgeous shade, I need it in my life!”, so I picked it up. Well needless to say that I fell in-love with the range immediately and now I own almost all available shades. :) By the way, these lipsticks completely proved me that sometimes drugstore makeup can definitely beat the high end and as a result I’ve become obsessed with finding new high street gems! <3

Okay, stop rambling! The shade #16 (I hate it when they don’t have names!) is this beautiful pinkish orange-y coral, which depending on the lightning changes its color a bit, which I find so lovely! I adore iridescent colors like this! The lipstick doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter in it and gives a pretty semi-matte finish. When the slight glossiness is gone though, the product leaves a nice tint of color on the lips, which is great if you prefer more long lasting lipsticks. I am aware that this bright shade may be a bit too much for some of you but I actually find that it is really wearable and perfect for daytime wear. I’d say that #16 is definitely a spring/summery color and so you know – it looks incredible especially if you are tanned! I’ve seen this shade on many different skin tones and I feel like it looks gorgeous on everyone and luckily it doesn’t wash me out at all, even though I’m so pale!  

As far as the formula goes, with this range I think Rimmel have definitely proven their ability to make incredible lipsticks! These products have such amazing formula, which surprisingly enough reminds me of YSL Rough Volupte a bit. I know this sounds odd, but the Rimmel ones are just SO creamy and hydrating, they never dry out my lips in the slightest. They apply like charm and glide on so easily and hustle-free. When on the lips, this gem feels super soft and smooth and not as if you’re wearing lipstick, which is certainly impressive! The lipsticks of this range are super pigmented and opaque and could be easily build up and don’t bleed at all! Another great thing about these is that they last for about 5 hours (Rimmel promise 8 but who is actually believing that?) on my lips, which is amazing and trust me – it’s very rare for me to find product with such lasting power! One thing I honestly am not fond about this lipstick is the smell. Oh my… why every time I find a product that works wonders it has to smell terrible?! I don’t know how to describe the scent cuz it’s quite weird but honestly it reminds me of perfumed herbs haha. I know, I know it sounds ridiculous but this is the only way for me to describe it! :D The bad news is that the smell is quite strong and actually lingers for a while but oh well…! On a brighter note though, the nasty scent stops me from licking the product off and so it lasts longer! ;) One more thing – I have never experienced this personally but I feel like this lipstick may accentuate any dry patches you may have on the lips. Have you noticed this before?

Overall, I’m really loving this lipstick. The shade is one of the most gorgeous iridescent corals I’ve stumbled across and I absolutely adore it for summer! The formula is fab and I adore how smooth, moisturizing and pigmented this stuff is! Even though I can’t stand the strong scent, I still cherish this little gem and I highly recommend it to anyone! <3

Have you tried the Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Moss Lipsticks before? What do you think of them? Do you like #16?

Lots of love,

  10. Such a beautiful colour, love it! I've got a berry coloured lipstick from the Kate Moss collection and while I love the colour and texture I have to agree on the smell! It really does linger which I find a bit off putting, I quite like just a normal traditional 'lipstick smell' rather than anything too scented. But the formula is great so I guess it's a small price to pay!xx

  11. I love the Kate Moss lipsticks, although I always tend to go for the bright reds and bright pinks. I may have to give this colour a try, it's adorable! I so find that if you have dry patches on your lips they look 10x worse, which is unfortunate for someone like me who suffers with dry lips and pretty much nothing helps. Waa!
    Love the post!

  12. This colour has been on my wishlist for so long. But it is always out of stock. I ended up picking up a muddy no.19 in its place. -_-

  18. I'm not sure if Rimmel is available everywhere in my country but in the case of me coming across them you certainly made sure one will be moving in with me :D

    I know exactly what you mean with accentuating dry patches. I actually have a lot of lipsticks that tend to do that when being touched up. Luckily my lips are very easy to handle but I can imagine how annoying that must be to someone who is prone to dry lips.

  30. Okay, that's it.. I am SOLD! I have been searching for the perfect 'pink' lipstick and I think this color comes close to the one I am searching for. I have not yet tried the Kate Moss lipsticks.. though I have been hearing good reviews on them too. So maybe it's finally time for me to get one. ;)

  31. I have a super bright pink (shade 90) from this range and find it super pigmented. I did a post on how it's a dupe for a MAC lipstick. I'd love to get more but unfortunately they don't offer all the same shades in the US! You got a lovely color, hopefully you'll get a lot of use out of it!

    I'm a massive fan of these and this shade is gorgeous so it might need to be added to my collection.

  39. I hate that they only have numbers! I want cute pretty names, darn it! Is that too much to ask for? Plus, numbers just confuse me...
    This color is absolutely gorgeous! It's a really pretty baby pink without being too girly and barbie-ish! xx
