Lasting Finish by Kate – Matte Lipstick

Another attempt at matte lipstick, as you may or may not know I am not a huge fan of Kate Moss, but boy do her and Rimmel know how to make a wonderfully strong pigmented lipstick in just the right colour. When they brought out the matte range well it would just be rude to say no.

They Say:

Kate Moss brings colour to a new unique dimension. The gorgeous colour richness and COMFORT of Kate’s lipstick, now in a Velvety MATTE finish. Ruby Powder enriched formula to intensify the colour while keeping a matte finish all day long! Matte is re-invented for the most velvety comfortable colour EVER!

I Say:
This is a traditional lipstick in style. With the base sticker as a positive reflection of the colour of the product inside. The colour itself is an eye-popping pink peach coral with no sheen.

After time I found this lipstick didn’t crack and flake like the Revlon Matte version but it did have a similar grainy texture which made me feel a little self-conscious. If you really like the colour you could prevent this with a little lip balm but this would easily negate the whole idea of it being a matte lipstick.
As a product I would say it is fair but perhaps I am just not too much of a fan of the texture of matte lipsticks. The colour itself is lovely but not for those with an olive skin tone as it make the skin look far too grey/yellow!
