Review: Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Nude Collection by Rimmel *


I've decided to take a little break from my Nailed It! Sunday posts for a bit while I get my nail polish collection sorted, which, let's face it, could take forever. In the meantime, however, let's have a chat about something I enjoy - nudes!

I love me a good nude! But who doesn't? Oh, right, perhaps I should expand on that - I love me a good nude lipstick! Sometimes, there's nothing better than a smoky eye with an understated lip. Quiet perfection.


When I heard that Rimmel was coming out with a set of nude cuties, I knew I had to get to know them better, so imagine my joy when I was given the chance to try them out!

And here they are, in all of their naked glory! I really like the range that they have, and I can wear most of them, if not all of them, which is great, given that lipsticks generally aren't a one size fits all type deal.

As you can see, 40 is a little too cool and pale for my skin tone, while 42 is a darker shade which is also cool, but dark enough for me to wear. 43 is a bit of a my lips but better hue and 45 is the perfect shade of nude for me. 48, while no longer what I'd consider a nude on me, is a gorgeous dark shade that I adore.

Wear time wise, I think they do as well as the typical Rimmel lipsticks, which is to say a couple of hours . However, I find some of these shades just that little bit drying on me, even though they are creamy to apply. I have taken to wearing lip balm beneath them, and it seems to work quite well like this. What I do like, though, is how pigmented they are, particularly for the lighter shades.

These babies retail for $12.95 each, but you can often find Rimmel on sale. These can be obtained wherever Rimmel stands can be found, including Priceline, Target and Kmart.

Have you been tempted to get them? Which is your favourite?

  1. I have 42 and 45 and really enjoy them! I'd also like to get 48 but I really must get through some of the lip products I have before getting more. I love to look at them but hardly ever wear lippy at all!

  3. I've been using some heavy duty lip balm underneath, Kora doesn't do the job. Nonetheless very gorgeous nudes!
