Rimmel: Lasting Finish Lipstick By Kate In 04 Swatch/Review


Rimmel: Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in Shade '04'

I want so badly for this to be positive review of an outstanding lipstick, but unfortunately i'm feeling so love/hate about this product! This shade is from the original Rimmel collaboration with Kate, which consisted of seven lip shades which were launched to capture the 'flair, edge and timelessness of Kate's unique look'. 04 is a very dark purple with black undertones, and as i couldn't get a decent photograph of the packaging i can tell you it comes in a black tube with Kate's signature in red scrawled across the lid. The colour and pigmentation of 04 is absolutely amazing as the stick deposits 100% opacity of the blackened plum shade in one sweep across the lips, and is actually a lot darker than is represented in the photograph. While the consisency is smooth and creamy upon application, i find it doesn't set particularly well, and noticed little marks and smudges on my hands as i must have been touching my face. After a while the colour becomes unbalanced on the lips and certain areas are prone to a build up of pigmentation, and in other areas the colour is quite scarce. A good thing about this lipstick is that is doesn't dry out on your lips like a lot of highstreet brand lipsticks tend to do, the creaminess is kept relitively intact so it's very wearable in that sense. I actually really love the shade of this lipstick so i'll be very tempted to repurchase, it just needs quite a bit of upkeep and a few mirror checks while you're out and about!

  1. I'm so glad that I read your review before purchasing one of these! I was desperate for this lipstick (in the colour your wearing) but if it's not 100% brilliant then I'll look elsewhere. Great review - thank you :) x

    1. I wouldn't want to put anyone off it, i'd probably buy this again myself as it's so gorgeous on! You just need to give it some extra care but i think it's worth it for the pigmentation x

  2. That's such a shame, it's a pretty colour! There's nothing worse than when a colour fades in certain places on your lips. Your jacket looks lovely! xx

  13. I have this lipstick also and I have never worn it out before. It's such a dark colour that I feel would be suitable for halloween or stage makeup. So disappointed. But it looks lovely on you nonetheless! x

  20. I really wanted this lipstick to be good too, but it just makes me look like a corpse!! It suits you though, I think i'm the wrong shade of pale for a lipstick this colour.

    I also bought Rimmel's 'Electric Plum', and can't rave about it enough! Perfect shade and super moisturising, definitely worth a look :)
