Rimmel "10" Lasting Finish By Kate Moss Lipstick Swatch + Review

In this installment of 13 Nights of Halloween, we have another lipstick review. Other than dark, vampy colors like MAC's "Darkside", a bright, blood-red color is one of the most popular lipstick shades to wear on Halloween. Why? Because whether you're going as Snow White or Cruella De Vil or Taylor Swift, you will need red lipstick to complete your look. Also, Halloween is the one night a year when you can go crazy and no one will judge you. So be bold! Also, I've been wearing this lipstick A TON lately and I really, really wanted to talk about it.

 The Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss lipstick range is uber popular on the blog-o-sphere, especially with British beauty bloggers. Zoe from Zoella is a huge fan of a lot of the Rimmel lipsticks and I'm not gonna lie, after watching her most recent Fall Favorites video I knew that I had to try them. I had waited too long!

The first thing I noticed in the store was that the lipsticks don't have actual names. They're assigned numbers but that's about it. I picked up three shades "01", "10", and "12". Both "01" and "10" are bold red colors and even when doing swatches for my blog I had to be careful not to mix them up. It doesn't help that they look so similarly and their numbers are also quite similar. The second thing I noticed was the packaging. These lipsticks come in a sleek black packaging with the company logo embossed on the outside and Kate Moss's signature on the lid. I'm not a huge fan of Kate Moss but I think that the overall look is very appealing and fun.

 This range has a cult following in the states but I never really got around to trying it out until recently. And let me tell you, they're amazing!

As you can tell from the swatch above, this lipstick is a bright, bold red color. It is a true cherry red. It's the kind of color that will look good on almost everybody. And lately, I feel like I'm obsessed with this shade. If I'm not wearing it to class then I'm wearing it alone in my room while I'm studying. It's a color that exudes confidence and I feel so powerful and strong when I wear it.
Maybe that's why almost all of the female Disney villains have red lips. It gives them that boost of confidence.

Here is what the color looks like applied to the lips. It's certainly a knockout shade. Once applied, it's has a very creamy and smooth consistency. However, I have noticed that when you first start application, the lipstick tugs a bit at the lips. It also has a generic, old lipstick sort of smell. Normally I hate, hate, hate the generic, old lipstick smell. But, somehow, Rimmel makes it work. Don't ask me how but it just does.

-Great pigmentation
-Fantastic price
-Available at all major drugstores
-Sleek, edgy packaging

-Small color range
-Transfers easily
-Is only assigned a number, not a name
-Application can tug at the lips

In conclusion, I am starting to believe that all of the hype surrounding the Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss Lipsticks is well deserved. It's a fantastic product, for a fantastic price. In comparison to the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks, these are more pigmented but Maybelline has a far superior range. The CoverGirl lipsticks have a grainier formulation and a lot of their shades have chunky, monkey glitter--not the sort of look I'm going for. This range is filled with fantastic basic lipsticks that will be in your collection for years. They are amazing.
