I’ve been reviewing of the limited edition Rimmel Nude Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick shades that appear in the new 15 Years of Iconic Kate Lipsticks display that’s launching now at drugstores. So far, I’ve been really liking these shades!
Rimmel Rock ‘n’ Roll Nude Lasting Finish Lipstick is one of three shades in this display labeled as “Kate’s Favorite Nudes”. I love this color but sadly it doesn’t love me.
Here’s a little look!
So far, I’ve had pretty good success with the limited edition shades from this collection. Rimmel Rock ‘n’ Roll Nude Lasting Finish Lipstick or Shade 54 comes housed in limited edition rose gold packaging which I absolutely adore. I can’t stress enough how much I like this packaging. It’s just really pretty and it stands out from your normal run of the mill drugstore lipstick packaging.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Nude is sadly not a shade I can pull off as it gives me a bit of a zombie lip look. The good news is a little gloss goes a long way at making this shade way more wearable. It’s a very pale beige pink that will likely prove beautiful and MLBB-like (my lips but better) on fairer skin and less pigmented lips than my own. It reminds me a little tiny bit of Urban Decay Naked Lipstick from the original Fall 2009 Collection but with considerably more beige to it.
The color applies fairly well with a thin, lightly hydrating finish. I find the Lasting Finish Lipstick formula seems to vary from shade to shade. I’d put this formula in with a MAC Lustre Lipstick but it runs a little thinner and drags a lot less on lips. Application was very smooth and the wear was comfortable and light at around four hours without migrating or feathering. The color does fall into my natural lip lines through so, I would recommend priming prior for a smoother finish. It does have a strange play doh-like vanilla fragrance and flavor that might upset sensitive users. I think the color looks a heck of a lot better with a clear lipgloss like Maybelline Shine Shot on top as it makes the color a lot less death-like on my lips and considerably more nude natural!
If you’re fair of skin and with paler lips you might just love Rimmel Rock ‘n’ Roll Nude Lasting Finish Lipstick as it’ll make a perfect MLBB (my lips but better) shade. If don’t think you can pull this off, don’t give up, a little clear gloss goes a long way at sheering the shade out and making it way more user friendly. I don’t regret the purchase as with clear gloss I think it looks quite lovely on my lips.
