DAY 11: Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss #107 

THIS PROJECT IS CALLED ALL MY LIPSTICKS. It’s like All My Movies except I wear all of the lipsticks/balms/glosses I own and report back to you on their prices, attributes, pros and cons. It’s basically an excuse for me to wear makeup and take selfies for PURPOSES OF RESEARCH.

I’m back! I didn’t wear much lipstick over the past week so I’m doing two of these today from the ones I did wear to compensate. 

This lipstick in particular does not have a specific “name” like lots of lipsticks do; it’s just labelled #107, and it’s a very dark, almost berry-toned red. It’s VERY dark and intense, probably something to keep in mind if you’re paler, as it will stand out and produce a different tone than it would on someone with a darker complexion. If you’re pale, it’s gonna look vamp-y and it’ll stand out. I find that (Kate Moss or not; I didn’t *buy* this lipstick so much as *acquire it* from a college roommate who didn’t want it) it has a tendency to bleed or feather around the edges; wear a plain lip liner or use concealer at the edges of your lips so it’s smooth. It will smudge throughout the day; and if you make mistakes putting it on it’ll show up and take a while to rub off. 

The website also shows a very different color to the one I’m wearing here, although it is labelled as #107. I’m not sure what’s up with that, but the one I have is a dark, deep red, and the one on the site is a brighter purple color. At $5 or $6 bucks a pop, it’s also more expensive than most of the ones I try out, and I probably wouldn’t have bought it on my own.
