Here’s what I meant when I said in the previous post that the Lasting Finish Lipstick 16 by Kate (Moss) with London high street brand Rimmel is more pink than what I expected to be a coral nude. It must be the warm lighting inside Red Dot’s Vanity Play.
The London look…
Kate Moss says, “Whilst I’ll always have my favourite timeless shades, I love to update my lipstick to reflect the new season’s style. I wanted to play with fresh and daring colour to create a look that’s fun and feminine but with an edge.”
On the lips. 16 appeared like pink grapefruit. (Sorry for the hurried mirror shot inside Vanity Play.) Just to show you how it would look like beside other bright pinks, I swatched it together with 2 MAC pinks I own. They more or less looked alike from the tube, but when applied, the disparities show. Rimmel Lasting Finish 16 is less intense than MAC Viva Glam Nicki and more dense, more bright, a tad darker and slightly pinker than MAC Sunny Seoul.
It’s a warm mid-pink with light coral undertones, something pretty for sunny days. The advert says it is infused with light-reflecting black diamond for added depth and intensity. It has a nice opaque texture with a light sheen, though I haven’t worn it long enough to test the 8-hour claim. For a drugstore brand, color payoff is good. The tight-lock casing impresses me.
I still have to test Mememe and Sleek True Color Matte lipsticks before I review another sheeny Sleek lippie. Blame it on the rainy day mood. Sue me now!
