I've had this Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in shade 01 for (yep you guessed) a few months. Best do a quickie review before it's discontinued or something ;) !
Now 01 (wish it had a proper name!) to me looks like a true pillar-box red in 'real life'. Not sure if there's a hint of a dark orange thing going on in these pics though? Gets more confusing because when I wore it to work the other day my friend said it looked like a pinky red (must be the rubbish office lighting!) Anyway - I applied a little balm first, stuck the lippie on, blotted and re-applied. Don't usually wear such bright lippie to work as a rule but just went for it on this occasion. My manager(ess) actually said it looked ok while we were in the kitchen!
It has a creamy texture and didn't dry out my lips - it's not a matte but also not too shiny. Pleased to report that after my morning cuppa and toast it was still pretty vibrant but just lost some of the sheen (I know this as I went to the loo to check!). My lips were still stained (evenly) a couple of hours later after my mid-morning apple (I do actually do some work when I'm at my desk and not just eat all day!). So - basically... I like this lippie and am quite impressed with it's staying power.
Quick pic here (with crappy 2nd day hair that was about to be tied up!)...will I ever get the hang of this 'taking photos of myself' lark?
The Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate is available at Boots here priced at £5.49. (I actually got mine from Tesco!)
Have you tried out Rimmel Lasting Finish? Which shade did you get?
