Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte 104 (4) Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick #104: Swatches & Review

The Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte range is quite raved about in the blogosphere and having seen and heard all good things about this range, it was quite hard to hold my horses  so I eventually caved and bought two lipsticks from this collection 109 review here and 104 on BOGO on 50% off.

I have picked this as one of the lipsticks on BOGO because it was touted to be drugstore dupe for MAC Twig by most of the bloggers.

The shade 104 is a deep rosy pink with plummy sort of violet undertone, in short it can be called as pinky brown lipstick. The shade itself is the buying factor for this lipstick, trust me it is quite a flattering shade when you swatch it on your hand (though testers are not available in US, I manage to swatch them chupke chupke ;) ) This shade works as an MLBB for some, a plummy pink for some and may wash some out as well.

The finish is semi-matte, I usually apply it in dabbing motion, blot and set it with a lip brush and sometimes with fingers which is a lot of effort. However, this lipstick takes close to an hour to set and behaves like a perfect matte lipstick on the lips. Pigmentation is good but doesn’t fetch much for pigmented lips, I guess it is the medium coverage property of this lipstick that makes it not suitable for some skin tones mostly dusky ones with pigmented lips.

The staying power is decent for 3-4hrs without meals, it fades evenly and feels dry. My biggest complaint with this lipstick is that it badly settles in to fine lines which looks like I have put on some bad quality lipstick.
