Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate in ‘Kiss Of Life’
Hey! A few days ago I won a giveaway by the lovely Nicola over at High Street Girls’ Fashion Guide, and I got sent this Kate lipstick in ‘Kiss of Life’. I was very surprised as I literally never win anything! Never, not even a local raffle down at Village Day, nor the work annual sweepstake on the Grand National. Nothing. So I was extra excited to win this, especially as I love the Kate @ Rimmel lipsticks so much already and I was really keen to try one of the red shades.
The packaging sells it to me straight away, it’s a lovely bright, bold red with the Kate signature on the top. I don’t want to sound too controversial (!) here but I actually prefer this packaging to MAC’s, both the shape and colour is better in my opinion.
The pigmentation is excellent, so so good for a high street brand and there’s no need to go over it two or three times like you sometimes have to with less pigmented lipsticks. The colour is lovely and bold, more of a bright cherry red rather than an orangey coral red (I’m soooo good at describing things…) which I love as it is really deep and rich and dare I say even compliments my skin tone!
It is fairly matte too, which is what I usually go for in a lipstick, and it goes on really smoothly and feels very moisturising for the entire time that you are wearing it. It lasts a good few hours before I had to touch it up which is good considering I had lunch during that time!
In all I love this product and am so happy I won it :). I would recommend it to anyone wanting to try Kate @ Rimmel lipsticks as it definitely gives other more expensive brands a run for their money.
