Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss in 107 Quick Review & Swatch
I haven't blogged for a while but I'm back today with this gorgeous shade from Rimmel's Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick line by Kate Moss: 107. It's apparently a good dupe for Heaux from MAC's RiRi Hearts MAC collection, which I loved the look of but didn't want to go through the hassle of getting (buying from the Archie's Girls collection was one of the most stressful moments of my life, haha).
107 is a deep, berry red and I think that it's perfect for the fall as well as the holidays! I can't physically compare it to MAC's Heaux personally, but I'm very happy with the shade whether it's a dupe or not.
Okay, let's talk quality.. The lipstick is smooth, but not quite creamy and is opaque in one go. It has pretty good wear time and it also leaves a stain which helps too. It's more of a satin finish then a matte as it claims, but this could be fixed with the blot of a tissue. Unfortuantely it has a tendency to cling to dry bits on the lips and also feathers, so I would definitely recommend using a lip scrub beforehand as well as a lip liner or base! It also has a bit of a waxy, generic lipstick scent to it, and while I dislike it I find that I'm able to ignore it pretty easily. What do you think?
