Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick

Usually when lipsticks say they're "long lasting" I'm like meh and just shrug it off. We've all been there where we think a product is going to be amazing because it says so on the packaging. Then you realise you've been overly optimistic. This, however, was not the case!

The matte version has the red packaging
This is what one layer looks like when applied

I brought this lipstick in the shade "Kiss of Life" from Superdrug for £5.49. The first thing I like about this product is the colour. You only need to apply one layer and it is already bold. This particular product is matte which is a cool effect and means you don't need to apply lipgloss on top. There is also non-matte version available which I am yet to try.

However, the wow-factor of this lipstick has to be the lasting power. I first noticed how good it was when my friend applied it before school and then I saw her at third period that day it still looked freshly applied. It honestly lasts for hours, even when you eat and drink whilst wearing it. 

The only critizism I have with it is that the actual lipstick could be longer so that it lasts longer. Don't get me wrong, I know the price is good so it would be easy to buy it again...but still. 

See what I mean about there not being that much of it?

I love love love this lipstick and will definitely be buying it again. I would give it an 9/10 as it really impressed me. Thank you for reading, I'll answer any question in the comments xxx
