It has been such a long time since I last used a Rimmel lipstick. I remember when I first got the infamous, Airy Fairy Lasting Finish Lipstick. It was constantly raved about in blogs, and with good reason too. It's such a pretty pink/nude color that was/is a favorite for many. While browsing around on the Ulta website, I came across Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipsticks from their Kate Moss collection ($5.19, each). I decided to order a shade to try, so I went with shade number 101.
Rimmel's Lasting Finish By Kate Lipstick in 101 is a beautiful pink, with a slight mauve undertone. It does pull more pink, though. This lip color comes housed in a sleek, red matte tube that I quite like. It's sturdy enough, and it adds some interest to the product. I do detect an artificial fragrance to this lipstick. It's not really bothersome for me, but it does dissipate after awhile.
The lipstick has a creamy texture that makes application a breeze, and it feels good on too. It's so lightweight that I sometimes forget I am wearing anything on my lips! This lipstick has the tendency to settle a bit into lip lines so, I suggest applying a light layer to avoid the lines being so obvious. I would say that the finish of this is more satin-like. The end result is not quite matte, but it does gives off a subtle sheen that is very flattering.
When it comes to longevity, I start to see some fading around the 3-4 hour mark. This definitely needs to be brought along when traveling, for those mid day touch-ups.
Overall: I really love how this lip color looks on. The pink coloring is right up my alley, and this is a great everyday sort of shade that I can easily apply without any fuss. I like! I will definitely be picking up some more of Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipsticks in the near future.
