Rimmel London Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick- 16 review,swatches

This range and particularly this shade was so on my wish list and I am so happy with the quality as well.


ABOUT:The 1st Lipstick collection created by Kate Moss High intensity colour for up to 8 hours. Formula infused with Black Diamonds, reflects light like never before. Captures all the flair, edge and timelessness of Kate’s unique.


PRICE: Rs.250 for 4 gms.


SHADE: shade #16 is a  gorgeous coral pink.It is slight neon on lips and might wash out dark skin tones.On my nc35,it is comfortable enough to carry.




MY VIEWS:The texture of the lipstick is creamy and it glides on smoothly on lips without any tugging.It has a semi-matte finish which is slightly drying but feels comfortable on lips. I like the way it feels on my lips. However,after few hours of application,my lips feel dry and I have to put lip balm.It has a tendency to stya on the lip lines(if you an understand that!! :P) but I love the fact that it is still very light weight.


The lipstick is sans any shimmer or sheen..it is just matte ,creamy -matte!!


It stays for 5 hours.The shade is pigmented enough to cover lip pigmentation very well.Also,it comes out easily with a cleanser without leaving any stain on lips. However,as said it might look streaky on darker skin as it is cool toned.


It has a mild fragrance that is pleasant and fades after application.



  • sturdy and classy packaging.
  • the shade is gorgeous.
  • texture is creamy.
  • light weight.
  • settles to  a matte finish.
  • highly pigmented.
  • decent staying power.


  • limited access to Rimmel products.

RATING: 4.5/5

RECOMMENDATION: This is a must buy rage and the shade is an absolute stunner.The staying power is decent along with a top notch formula.I love love love this shade to bits as it is summery,corally,pinky and absolutely lovely!!!The only con is limited availability!!
