It has only taken me just under two years to fall for the hype of the Lasting Finish Matte Lipsticks by Kate Moss for Rimmel London. I guess for the most part I had put off buying this particular shade because of the word ‘matte’ which tends to create stunning finishes on everybody else but myself. My lips suffer with being dry quite a lot of the time where I find it a constant challenge to keep them nice in order to wear my lipsticks without them caking into dry patches.
Whilst out shopping with my friend a few days ago she convinced me that I had to buy this lipstick. I almost nearly reached the checkout on that particular occasion however eventually I ended up putting it back in favour of my concealers. Of course me being me this restraint did not last long which resulted in being back in Boots just a day later with 107 in my hand.
This lipstick has quite the cult following and I’d happily place a bet that I won’t be the only one sporting this gorgeous colour throughout the coming autumn and winter. The light in my picture above is I would argue a tad deceiving as this colour is slightly darker than it appears in this image. I’d describe this as a berry red which reminds me of somewhat of snow white for some reason, it truly is beautiful and I cannot wait to wear it once autumn is here in full swing.
Of course being a matte lipstick I’d prep the lips with some balm beforehand. I used one which in hindsight was a poor choice as it isn’t very moisturising at all, in fact I’m not entirely sure why I still have it. Whilst sitting here writing this post I can feel my lips starting to feel rather dry so a good moisturising balm is in my opinion warranted. That I have to say is my only criticism where this lipstick is concerned and it is one that is easily countered as lasting power, pigmentation, visual appearance and price point are all winning factors; overall this has to be one of my favourite beauty purchases to date.
So come on then, what’s your favourite lipstick at the moment?
