Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick. This lipstick was designed by Kate Moss, with “light reflecting power” (quoted from the website). This lipstick comes in 9 different shades (as of today). The one I bought was #12, Coralicious.
First impression, the lipstick bullet is matte with a shiny bit in the middle. Kate’s signature is on the top half of the bullet. Personally, I think the bullet looks quite classy. When I first open the top, the smell of berry hits me in the face! It is quite a strong smell. The smell reminds me of one of the baby toys I used to have as a kid, where it was a pretend jar of jam/baby food that I could feed the toy doll. The smell did go away after about 10 minutes of wear (either that or I no longer noticed)
Application on the lips was smooth and the colour is very pigmented. The colour did not last long on my lips. During my 6 hour wear, I had to retouch about 5 times even though I only drank water once and I ate one cookie. I did not notice how often I touched the area around my lips until I found bits of lipstick on my hand. The lipstick transferred easily from the bullet to my lips but just as easily from my lips to anywhere else. The lipstick is not drying but it is not moisturizing. After having dinner, what’s left of my lips is a lip-stain and bits of lipstick in the cracks of my lips.
For the priced I bought it at (AUD$2), I thought this lipstick was well worth my money. I would not go out to buy it for AUD$11.95 because the colour did not last and the smell was not to my liking. Up close, the lipstick did not make my lips look sexy, thus, no pics.
