Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss #16 ~ Review, Swatches, FOTD

Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss #16 Review
Think mimosas, mojitos, think beach, or just the pool. Think tan, think summer. Because all that is what I thought of the minute I laid my eyes on this lipstick!

Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss #16 Swatches
Everyone goes through phases. But mine are quite public thanks to me being a beauty blogger. All of you know by now of my love for the Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss Lipsticks! But did you know that of all my Rimmel lipsticks (the Kate Moss ones) I've been most excited about this one. I had a feeling it would be too light for my skin tone, but there are some colours, you have to have! I mean who knows, After trying another lipstick that I assumed would look rubbish on me, it turned out it didn't so this gorgeous coral stood a chance. Plus for its price, it was a risk totally worth taking!

Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss #16, MAC Crosswires, Revlon Colorburst Peach
Color: #16 is a bright, light creamy coral colour. It is a lot brighter than it appears to be in the swatches for some reason. It is a lighter version of MAC Crosswires in my opinion, but brighter. Lighter, and less orange than MAC Vegas Volt. More pink than Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Peach. I really don't know how to describe this quality, where I find a colour acidic. Not neon, but it's bright, it's so bright, it almost doesn't wash me out! 
If not for it's brightness, it totally would have washed me out. Or at least looked like a coral based n*de on my NC 42 skintone. I still feel that I need colour on my cheeks to wear it easily. It's not the easiest color to just slap on, on the go! But still it looks like an easy, light but bright everyday kind of a color in 2 coats, thanks to it's almost matte looking texture, it doesn't look ott.
Also, it looks very different on on my hand swatch and my lips. It's more coral on my hand swatch but looks lighter, creamier and more pink on my lips.
I promise I try taking more pictures tomorrow to see if I can capture the exact shade and post it here if I can!

To see my full review on the texture & wear of these lipsticks, please read Rimmel Kate Moss #20 (a bright pink) / Rimmel Kate Moss #22 (a pinkinsh-coral based red).
  • Price Rs 215
  • Available at slassy.com

Rimmel Kate Moss #16 lipstick is a beautiful bright, but light creamy coral color that would suit fair- medium skintones best. It would look like a coral based n*de on my NC 42 skintone if it weren't as bright.

  7. I have this! I bought this from the Delhi airport and might I say, it was love at first swatch! On the lips though, entirely different story. It was much more pink (a muted, dull pink) but I figured it out - it was because of the lip balm I use underneath!

    Also, you have gorgeous skin. So flawless! Tips?

    1. No, noo! You're right it is definitely more pink on the lips! I'm not wearing any lipbalm underneath it here in the photos!
      And you're so sweet! I'm wearing concealer here & the ponds bb cream!
