I've got to admit, I never was the biggest fan of bold lips and I would much prefer to go for a dark berry shade than a coral or red, but I think that this lipstick has changed my mind. I picked up the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in the shade '37' a few weeks ago and I know already that this will definitely be something that I reach for frequently throughout spring and summer, so I thought I'd let you all know about it.
I'd describe this colour as a somewhere between a reddish coral with a hint of orange. I don't know if that made any sense but the swatch in the picture above is really true to colour in person. I didn't think that this colour would really suit my colouring but surprisingly I really liked how this looked on me! I think that this colour would look really nice on various skin tones but I think that you're best to try it out on yourself to see how you like it.
There is more of a matte finish to this lipstick and unfortunately that means that after a while it can begin to feel a bit dry. However, on first application it feels very moisturising. Using a hydrating lip balm before I used this did help a little bit but I think that the slight dryness will always be there.
Despite the dryness, the colour of this lipstick lasts really quite well. It comes off through eating and drinking but leaves a stain on the lips that is really quite pretty. I haven't experienced any bleeding onto the area around my mouth either with this lipstick which is great due to the intense pigmentation it has. Because it's so pigmented I recommend that you use a lip brush while applying this product so that you end up with a super precise, defined line.
Overall, I'd say that the formula of this product is quite good, if a little dry, but that can be easily sorted with some lip balm.
I'd say that this product was definitely a win for me and I imagine that it will feature in a favourite or two in the coming months. If you give it a go I'd love to hear what you have to say about it.
You can get the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in the shade '37' on Feel Unique for £5.49.
