Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Collection Lipstick By Kate - Review + Swatches

Like a lot of makeup lovers, I like neutral lipsticks as well but sometimes, I have a harder time finding a color that looks good on me. A lot of the lighter nude shades look too chalky or just unnatural but I never gave up my search and I am happy to say I have found some that works for me. When I saw these in my local drugstore, I was very curious because I have other lipsticks by Rimmel Kate and really like them, so I was interested to try these. Out of all the shades there was, these two looked the most appealing to me.

These come in a nude color packaging with the Kate signature on the cap. I like the packaging a lot because in a glance at my lipsticks, I know that these are neutral shades and I can just pick whichever I want, also the packaging is very sleek and simple yet chic and I love it. To be honest, these sort of remind me of the Maybelline The Buffs, which I did a post about back in Summer I believe. These lipsticks have a sweet, subtle scent that doesn't linger when it's on the lips. It's not anything overwhelming, it's actually quite pleasant. Has a creamy smooth texture, and goes on the lips very easily. Very pigmented so there's no need for several applications to get the color of the lipstick. It is semi-matte finish, so no shimmer or gloss, but as you can see in the flash photo, it has a sheen to it. It's very rich in moisture as well as pigmentation. It doesn't dry out my lips but I still recommend exfoliating the lips for a smooth surface. Since there's no shimmer in this, it could have the possibility to emphasis any dryness or cracked lips. I find that I don't have to keep reapplying the lipstick throughout the day unless I eat any greasy food. So it has good staying power as well.

All in all, I love these lipsticks, and I am very happy with the shades I chose. The tone and color work perfectly on me and I recommend these to anyone who loves neutral lipsticks. These get two big thumbs up from me.
