I’ve fallen in love with a new lipstick.. and it cost me under five dollars! My mom and I made a quick stop to CVS on Saturday to pick up a few Father’s Day cards, and of course I had to scope out the beauty section! I was looking for a new lipstick- I have recently bought a few that I haven’t been thrilled over. I wanted a nice, light pink, but I wanted it to be noticeably pink.
That’s when I saw Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss. The bright red bottle caught my eye as I scanned for a pretty pink color. I picked up 101, and they only had one left, which I took as a good sign! My mom had a 20% off coupon, so it made the $4.99 price tag ever lower! Pretty good steal if you ask me.
I decided to test it out on Father’s Day, and I was instantly hooked. The pigmentation of this was perfect against my lips- I didn’t even have to use a lip liner! The smell was a bit strange, but after a couple of minutes I didn’t really notice it. But I absolutely love the matte finish. I tend to play up my eyes more than my lips, and this color is perfect for that. It’s not a huge, bold statement (which I would predict some of the other colors in this line are), but it’s bold enough to see that something is there. My favorite part about it is that you don’t need to reapply often. I was out for about 10 hours, and only reapplied once!
I think it’s perfect for the summer, and I’ve already planned to stock up on this color, and possibly give the other colors a try! I’m wearing shade 101. On the website, the color swatch doesn’t look as pink as it really is. Even if pink isn’t your favorite lip color, I highly suggest you try out these matte lipsticks. For only five dollars, they are complete steals!
