Review: Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nude Collection by Kate Moss

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nude Collection by Kate Moss $12.95

This new nude collection released by Rimmel London in collaboration with Kate Moss includes five nude lipsticks with shades designed to be flattering options for all skin tones. You’re bound to find a nude shade that matches your skin tone, with the shades varying from the subtle apricots to cashmere beiges and rich toffees.

After trialling the lipstick over a week, I have concluded that they are moisturising, comfortable to wear and reaches opacity in a swipe or two. The finish is semi-matte, and despite the “up to 8 hours” wear claim, I found that they only lasted about 4 hours until I needed to reapply.

Packaging-wise, they come in a peachy nude plastic tube, with silver reflective detailing. The cap features the ‘Kate’ signature logo and the Rimmel crown embossed on top.

The shades are:-

My two favourite shades for my olive skin, pigmented lips are #45 and #48. The other three shades were just too light for my tanned skin and made me look like a corpse. The first three shades would definitely suit paler girls better.

You can purchase these shades from Priceline, Target, Kmart, Big W, Chemist Warehouse, selected pharmacies, selected Coles and selected Woolworths for $12.95.

Review: Rimmel Provocalips

Not so new to the Australian beauty market are these Rimmel Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour, offering 8 shades which claim to be

Kiss proof , transfer proof, food proof, high impact endless color. No tight feeling or dry lips. Lips feel smooth and moisturized all day long.

Ok. So when I first received these, there were no instructions to be seen – apart from “Step 1” and “Step 2” on the product! So trial and error and reading other bloggers’ reviews, I concluded that you should let the colour (step 1) dry first before applying the top coat.

Details first. As you can see, on one end is the lip colour, and the opposite end contains the top coat. The consistency of the lip colour is quite thin and runny. The top coat is designed to lock in the lip colour and applies like a clear gloss. Both applicators are doe foot applicators so application is a breeze. Due to the colour drying very quick, you do need to work carefully and quickly.

The big question, I think, is how do they feel once applied? Surprisingly, very comfortable! The colour on its own can be a bit sticky which is why you need the clear top coat which adds some moisture.

As for their 16 hour kiss proof, transfer proof, food proof claims? Well. I couldn’t really test it for 16 hours but I did for 10 hours (which is long-wearing enough for me!).

Close up, application starts looking a bit dry and manky. At the 10 hour mark, it wore off from the middle of my lips. However, the colour is still there and from afar, it doesn’t look that bad! But of course, close up, it does not look that pretty.

And now onto the swatches –

110 Dare to Pink – a milky pink
200 I’ll Call You – medium pink mauve
310 Little Minxk – fuchsia pink
230 Kiss Fatal – plum

500 Kiss Me You Fool – fire engine red
550 Play With Fire – ox blood red
700 Skinny Dipping – brown-based nude
730 Make Your Move – rosy brown nude

Arm Swatch – 500 Kiss Me You Fool, 550 Play With Fire, 700 Skinny Dipping, 730 Make Your Move

My favourite shades are I’ll Call You, Little Minx and Make Your Move.

In terms of removal, you do need an oil-based makeup remover to easily wipe the colour off. I just used baby oil and they came off easily.

You can check these out at your local Priceline, Coles, Big W, Chemist Warehouse and Woolworths and they retail for $17.95AUD.

Review: Rimmel x Rita Ora Lasting Finish Colour Intense Colour Balm

The jumbo lip crayons has been saturating the beauty market over the last few years and Rimmel has finally jumped onto the bandwagon with their version carrying a ridiculously long name – Lasting Finish Colour Intense Colour Balm.

As part of their celebrity collaboration with Rita Ora, Rimmel has released six shades ranging from nude to red.

I have for you, Give Me A Cuddle and On Fire, to review.

Give Me A Cuddle  is a candy pink shade. At first, I thought it’d be too cool for me but it applies much warmer than it appears. Over time, it transitions into a deep pink on my lips.

On Fire, is on the other end of the spectrum and is a bright red with orange undertones. Depending on the light, you can also see the subtle pink undertone as well.

Application wise, the Lasting Finish Colour Intense Colour Balms went on smoothly, with no tugging and is very lightweight. You will notice that it has a coyingly sweet vanilla scent. I’m a huge fan of sweet vanilla scents so this doesn’t bother me at all. However, if you’re not a fan, fear not, the scent doesn’t linger once applied!

Despite its name, I wouldn’t say it’s a balm per se. I didn’t find it moisturising enough. In terms of wear time, the ‘balm’ part wore off within the hour for me however it did leave behind a colour stain which wore beautifully for an additional two hours before wearing off unevenly.

Even though they were slightly late to the jumbo lip crayon game, I think Rimmel has released a great product. Whilst it has minimal moisturising properties, it definitely isn’t drying and the colour stain left behind wears well. I also think Rimmel has released a colour range that everyone would find at least one shade they like.

Available for $12.95AUD each, you can find the range at Priceline, Target, KMart, Big W, and selected pharmacies, Coles and Woolworths.
