BLOGGER TALK: Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss

" This lippie has a nice sweet scent to it too, which you wouldn't expect, though I just can't place my finger on what the scent actually is! The formula feels a little balmy and doesn't dry out my lips at all. The colour lasts around a few hours."

" After owning them, I can now tell you that they don't have a true matte finish (well, compared to let's say Ruby Woo) and personally I would describe them as semi-matte.

  1. Looks like these lippies have divided the blogging community just like they've divided me! I can't stand the cosmetic lipstick scent, and I do find mine doesn't apply as smoothly as I'd like, but it doesn't dry my lips out and it survives a fair few hours! xx
