Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Nude Lipstick

I finally came across a display of Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Nude Lipstick and picked up two shades. I had the most difficult time tracking these down here in the US. For some reason every single lipstick display I came across that held them was either completely empty or the lipsticks were swatched and used. Gross!

These are different shades than the nudes featured in the Rimmel 15 Years Iconic Kate Moss Lipstick Collection.

Here’s a look at the two shades I purchased.

The Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Nude Lipsticks are apparently a permanent part of Rimmel’s Collection but I’ve honestly only had the pleasure of seeing them in special displays that have been utterly picked over. I finally located a full, unused display at Harmons recently so, I picked up shades 46 and 47. Many of the shades were difficult for me to pull off without getting a bad case of zombie lips so, I guess in a way the fact that I couldn’t find them was a blessing rather than a curse.

These come housed in special edition packaging which is a light peach barrel with Kate’s signature scribbled across the top in white. I’m actually very partial to Rimmel’s purple metallic packaging but these are just as pretty.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick promises eight hours of continuous wear but I get around four hours typically without migration or feathering. I always find the formula quite nicely creamy with a balmy finish on lips that’s not very moisturizing and can sometimes run a bit drier deeper into the wear. But I always feel like color tends to fall into my natural lip lines. This is a lipstick that requires very smooth lips that aren’t dry or flaky. I typically like wearing this when my lips are behaving because on drier, chapped days it’s definitely a formula that hates me. Color pay off is typically excellent and these two shades are no exception with very good color pay off. They do have an odd flavor/fragrance that reminds me of some sort of play-doh vanilla taste. It isn’t pleasant but it isn’t repulsive enough to make me stop using them.

I think the perk of many of Kate’s shades is the fact they are so wearable. 46 is a caramel beige with peachy undertones where as 47 is a brown based dusky rose. Both shades make for some very nice, nude looks. I think they look particularly fabulous when worn with clear gloss on top.

Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Nude Lipstick are a nice cheap thrill if you happen to find them on sale. Don’t be as disappointed as I was if you don’t find them though as the formula isn’t so incredible that you’re missing out!

If you’re looking to experiment with nude lipsticks and don’t want to splurge on an expensive shade, these fit the bill nicely for around $4 at most!

Get them now at drugstores or online at drugstore.com, ASOS.com, Walmart.com, Walgreens.com, or Amazon.com.

    So ironic! I’ve seen these in the DS many times, with full displays, but since nude lipsticks tend to make me look sick/zombie-ish, I’ve avoided. But # 47 looks very nice on you!

      Likewise! I have to be careful with nudes! I end up looking walking dead like if I’m not careful!

      Lucky you! I would like to see these, but haven’t spotted them in my area.

    That rosy nude 47 shade is a perfect one for you. I have got to be careful wearing nude lipstick as I end up look ill – people will ask me whether I am well or not…….. I think a lipstick with a bit of colour balances out your face too. Lovely shade that 47 and a good price too.
