As a busy mama, glam is not a word that would ever describe how I feel most days. But one swipe of a red lipstick does the trick in helping me feel more put together. Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Matte lipstick by Kate Moss* in #111 is one of those reds.
This colour is a beautiful warm orange-red that would look lovely on many. When I wear this, I keep the rest of my makeup minimal. Some blush, mascara and that’s it.
While I found it comfortable to wear, as a matte it is a bit more drying than typical creamy or satin lipsticks. You have to make sure your lips are well exfoliated and primed — every little flake on your lips will show when wearing this. Also be prepared to do a little work in lining your lips. This can bleed a bit but this can happen with many a red. I found staying power was decent at four to five hours. As with any matte red, you do have to reapply to certain areas as the day wears on.
Overall, I liked the colour of this lipstick. If you want to try a matte red and don’t want to fork out more than $10, then this is one to consider.
I really enjoyed the other Kate Moss lipsticks from Rimmel, and I’m curious as to how the other lipsticks in this line stand up to the test.
Have you tried the matte colours from Rimmel?
