Review: Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick

When I come across reviews on a certain product over and over again, it makes me want it just that little bit more. I guess it is exactly how advertising works- the more you see something, the more familiar you are with it and the more likely you are going to purchase it! Well, this was the case with the Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick. After hearing so many great things about its formulation, longevity, finish, selection of shades and even its scent- I knew it was something I had to try. 

Lipstick in Shade 07
In  a bed of floral patterns! Haha
I picked this up with 50% off its full price, so it only cost around $6! To be honest, I wasn't intending to purchase this but being at half price was definitely the factor that swayed me to buying it. I love how its matte black packaging looks sleek and simple but doesn't feel too cheap either. It is definitely nothing super fancy, but it is quite nice- and I'm a sucker for nice packaging.

I had no clue what shade to choose, but I decided on Shade 07 after swatching a few different shades instore, however I was choosing between 07 and 14. Shade 14 was a little more nude/beige-like, so I decided against it, in the fear it would not be wearable on my lips! Shade 07 is a natural pink colour, leaning almost to a salmon pink in the bullet. Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipsticks are described as having a unique formula with "light-reflecting power" to add depth to your pout and having a lasting finish.


The shade looks slightly nude!
Application was a breeze, it was smooth to apply and I love its semi-matte formula! Matte formulas are much too drying on the lips and require the lips to have been prepped with exfoliation prior to application; and the shiny/sheen finished (haha what is the proper name for the lipsticks with finishes opposite to matte...) lipsticks are much too glossy on my lips and tend to exaggerate the yellowness of my teeth (sob!). Shade 07 was beautiful and perfect! It was a "my lips but better" shade which was a surprise! I didn't expect my lips to have been such a light shade but I am so happy with the colour choice. In terms of longevity, I didn't find it to last that long, maybe only a couple of hours at the maximum however it wasn't too much of a deal for me as I would happily apply this lovely lipstick!

I've taken a picture of a swatch I have done, but somehow I still can't manage to take beautiful photos of swatches like some people can- so have a look here at a much better version of 07, and a few other shades too!

Looks slightly more darker and orange-like than in real life
Was the Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick worth all the great reviews? Definitely! I wasn't disappointed at all (which I usually am after reading lots of reviews) and love its formulation and shade selection. A great buy as well, especially if you take advantage of a 50% offer!

Have you tried the Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipsticks? What shades do you have and what do you think?

  5. Have yet to try any but thats because i havent checked to see if they're in the store here! I actually have more than enough lip products, I've been trying some korres and I know I want more! I am a huge fan of the nude shades from the kate moss collection, I think thats great you got it at half off, I would've been swayed too! ^^

    1. I don't even have that many lip products yet I still find it daunting to choose what colour to wear each day- so it must be very difficult for you haha! :P I always want more and more too when I know I won't even use it all :( I wonder if they will be released where you are!

  6. I also love this range from Rimmel! great color, great quality as well and the price tag doesn't hurt ;))
    Have you tried the matte version one? they come with a red bullet and they are so lovely!

    1. The price tag really doesn't hurt at all! No I haven't tried the matte version but I'm definitely on the look out a really nice red lipstick so I might have a look around :)

  7. An orange nude? Looks pretty!

  8. Such a pretty neutral color! I have shade 11 and I agree, they have a really great semi-matte finish that does suck the life out of your lips. Oh, and did you notice the crown symbols on your blog match the lipstick logo? :)

    1. I didn't realise that the crown matched my blog but it does! What a coincidence :P

  9. Wow, that's such a nice shade. I've got a few of the Kate Moss lippies, but haven't gotten around to trying them yet!

  10. Ooh, that's a gorgeous shade - it looks more nude in the photos!
    Half-price? 6? That's a definite buy!

  12. Hi. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like the color. Nudes are great. I've never tried the Kate Moss line by Rimmel, but most reviews are positive.

  17. I haven't tried this lipstick yet because I haven't seen them in a store near me. I keep hearing such great things about them, I can't wait to get my hands on this lip stick. The shade you swatched, 07, looks really pretty and very wearable.

  19. Such a great shade! I haven't seen this in stores by my house but will definitely look harder. I started loving Rimmel when I was in London and now I can only find limited quantities of it so my husband gets it for me when he travels.

    Check out this red I tried! Go to makeitrane.com and look under the Fashion and Beauty tab!

  30. I actually was deciding between this and 14 too, and settled on 14, how funny! Very nice colour though! And I agree with you about the packaging, Rimmel did well with this collaboration!

  31. I feel like I usually see reviews on this Kate Moss lipstick collection with the more brighter reds and fuchsia shades but the one you have is also really nice.
    It looks like a shade that can be worn quite casually and still add some colour to your face which is really great!

  32. I am like you too!! I always get so tempted to buy products that I come across in multiple reviews. I have heard so many good things about the Rimmel x Kate Moss lipsticks. It's great to know that it has now gotten your seal of approval ^-^

  33. Rimmel make excellent lipsticks and this Kate Moss range is no exception! I only have 11 which is super pigmented and lovely in texture, but not something I ever reach for :p 7 seems like a much safer bet! Gotta love 50% off ;)
