Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks by Kate

I got this lipstick onboard Tiger Airways when I went back from Singapore but actually I’ve been eyeing this Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks by Kate travel package since months ago when I went on another airline. Hihihi. It’s retail for SGD25 but guess what: there are FOUR lipsticks inside the package! That means, each lipstick only costs SGD6.25! And it’s Rimmel!! Awesome deal, aye! πŸ˜€

Since I brought this Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks by Kate to the office, my colleagues have been in love with it. It becomes the new primadona; two of them even want to adopt two shades inside. Haha. With a great selection of shades and a great price, how does it actually perform? Let’s check my simple review. πŸ˜€


1. Packaging

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks by Kate comes in a box. Inside the box, there are four lipsticks in different shades ranging from hot red to innocent nude. The tube is in black doff material with red ‘Kate’ handwriting style printed on the cap. What’s so cute about the tube is the crown embossed on the top! LOVE!


2. First Impression

The shade that I opened first was number 01 (red). I fell in love with the shade directly. It’s the kind of red shade I love. Dark, vampy, sexy, and HOT! Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks sends a sweet vanilla scent that I like – I personally like sweet scent for lipstick. πŸ˜€

3. Texture

The bolder colors (01 and 05) are opaque and very concentrated. Which is good. The two more sheer colors (03 and 08) is a bit too sheer for me; it needs several swipes to make the color comes out. But I guess it’s because my bare lips are already pinkish because when Jovita and Cimei (my two lovely colleagues slash boss and HR) tried it on, it looked amazing on them in just one or two swipes. LOL.

4. Longevity

It can stay for around 5-6 hours without eating and around 4hours only with eating. After eating, the inner half of the lipstick faded away, leaving my lips look like it’s framed. Hihihi. No worry, just put it on again. After eating. πŸ˜€


5. Hydration

To be honest, it does feel a little bit drying. But only the feel cus my lips are just fine after wearing it for a day, not crackin dry and all.

6. Shade

There are four shades inside Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks by Kate.


01 – Hot Red (My fave!)

Of course, it’s my fave! Hehehe. And I think it’s one shade that’s been promoted strongly because it’s the only shade mention in the box “Get Red That Lasts!” πŸ˜€ And must I say, from several red lipsticks I have, this Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate is among the BOMB! Best!

03 – Nude Beige

Least fave. I like nude color – okay, not as much as bright color – but this one falls really flat on my lips. Meh!

05 – Deep Dark Rose

Great color for daily. Gives you a pop of color but not too bright it scares a kitten off. πŸ˜€

08 – Soft Marsala

It’s the color of 2015! This one is also good for a daily lip color.


So there they are, the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks by Kate. If you’re looking for a good deal of basic lipstick colors with an affordable price, go opt for this. Really worthed!

Senyum dulu ah.. πŸ™‚
