Would recommend to: Those looking to try out a variety of reds in different shades, those on a budget.
I almost exclusively wear matte lipsticks, and I also mostly wear reds. I went out in a limb and decided to buy three of the non-matte ones - but that's for another review. Overall, comparing these to my modest lipstick collection, they're really about a 2.5/3. I bought 111 and 109. Compared to my other matte lipsticks, these aren't drying, but they do have to be reapplied frequently and the color does not go on smoothly. I found it to be a bit patchy and feathery, even with lipliner and then trying it with a brush. I HIGHLY recommend wearing a lipliner with these though.
111 - A true cool-toned red. It isn't as matte as it could be. I didn't find it drying at all. Tip: Always do a lip scrub he night before and morning of wearing matte lipsticks. I think this is good NON-DRYING dupe to Ruby Woo (MAC), as RW is widely known for being extremely drying. It really helps! I wore a Rimmel lipliner underneath it, and applying this color over it was somewhat difficult. It could just be the operator, but I had a hard time with this lip color feathering. It only lasted a few hours, even with the lipliner, before I had to reapply it.
109 - A coral-red, almost a pinky coral. I like this one so much better than 111. It's a great summer color, and I don't really have anything like it yet. This one will definitely stay in my purse, especially if I can find a lipliner to match it. It is slightly drier and matter than 111, and I didn't have as much feathering trouble with it. Although, it also didn't last very long.

I have this is 103 and 107. I would describe 103 as a muted blue-toned pink colour, and 107 as a deep berry red. I bought these lipsticks on sale, so they were about $7 AUD each which is extremely cheap, even for drug store lipsticks! The pigmentation of these lipsticks is amazing, especially 107 and they are surprisingly moisturizing for matte shades. I love the smell of these lipsticks, they smell like grape!! I initially thought 107 would be too dark for my pale skin (Mac NC15) but it actually looks very flattering, especially when paired with a neutral eye look. The lasting power is quite impressive, I only need to reapply about every 4 hours. Overall, I think these lipsticks are some of the best available at the drug store at the moment and will definitely be purchasing more from this collection.

Pros: Lasts for hours, beautiful colours, smells good, doesn't transfer much. Cons: no seal on the packaging so anyone can open it in the store, dries the lips a little

The color #109 is absolutely stunning! Finally, a bright (almost red) shade that really flatters my medium NW30 skin tone! When turned 45 I had to rethink the whole red lip look as I felt it further aged my features. I actually grieved for the days when I could slap on any color and go. Since then, I'm 51 now, I've searched in vain for a red that I could wear with confidence knowing it looks great. 109 is the one! The most perfect red with a bit orange (70/30) that's not too bright but just bright enough to light up the complexion. It's matte but not drying. And its opaque but not thick and gloppy in texture. It glides on like silk...expensive silk with substance! I adore this shade...and it adores me! And, as if it weren't enough to find the perfect shade the formulation is out of this world amazing! I've had absolutely no issues with dryness, uneven fading, or patchiness. I apply a very thin layer of lip balm under it and I get about 5 hours of wear before I need to re-apply. In addition, there's no unsightly traveling in the fine lines above my lip...this stuff stays put. I can't sing the praises of this lipstick enough. I'll have to get more shades 'cause I'm wearing this one out! But you can bet I'll get a backup of this gorgeous color! It's perfect for spring and summer...and so affordable, too. I never thought I'd say this but, this is my Holy Grail lipstick!!

I bought two of these lipsticks, since my CVS was having a BOGO half off sale. I got it in color 111 and 109. I absolutely love the colors. 111 is a true red, while 109 in a corally-red. Both look amazing on me.
Goes on strong
Lasts while eating
Doesn't rub off
Colors are bright and vibrant
Easy to apply
Tube shaped package is nice
Chemical smell (fixed with mint balm over the color)
Hard to blot (also fixed with balm)
Nothing sealing the packaging; anyone in the store could open it
Very drying (fixed with balm underneath)
I definitely would buy this lipstick again. Maybe next time I'll try one of the black-tubed Lasting Finishes, which aren't matte.

I bought just about all the colors in this line...and they're all just too dry. I realize its matte but even with the application of a little balm underneath, it dries out and begins to flake. It shouldn't do that. The red's in this line are incredible! And for the first time, I have a red that looks great with my skintone...the problem is that it doesn't stay looking good with the flaking.
I'm really bummed out about it...

I have this is 101, which is a very pretty light pink, but I don't like the way the light color emphasizes the dryness and lines of my lips. It's also not very slippery, so it never really dries or rubs into your lips, it just sits on top, so it's hard to blot it or smooth it out without just rubbing it off, although it feels nice on. It has a very strong kind of fruity smell and a perfumey taste, which is extremely off-putting and does not fade away. I would probably still try a darker color though, and I think the packaging is adorable, but I don't recommend shade 101 unless your lips are perfectly smooth. Balm or lip gloss on top or under only makes it worse.

I love this lipstick already! I bought it in two colors yesterday, from two different Kate Moss collections with Rimmel. One of the red tubes, and one of the black tubes. In the black tube I had 10, which is a beautiful rich red color that just looks amazing on me. It lasted really well, though it did seem to come of on like anything I touched. No running, but on application did smear a little. In the red tube was 102, which is a sort of...pinky corally....something. It didn't look as good on as I thought but I still like it. It's a little too close to my lip color, and it feels like it sort of disappears, but it looks great with a little gloss over it. Once again didn't seem to stay, but it still looked good. Best thing about both is the smell. The smell is to die for, smells like fresh fruit.

I wish I could love this but I don't. I chose the shade 113 which is a nude but the texture is horrid. It's as if I've got fluff on my lips and its quite irritating.

I was really pleased with this lipstick!
I bought this in 103, which is a color that falls somewhere in the spectrum between bright pink and nude pink, if that makes any sense at all. It's definitely a noticeable color and a little bright, but definitely not a super bright pink. Very wearable, and I think it will be especially cute for spring and summer.
I love the smell of this lipstick and the cute packaging!
The product goes on evenly and is definitely matte. It did dry out my lips and make them look chapped after a little bit - but I feel that all matte lipsticks and stains will do this, so just add some balm on top and it will look much better, and still have that flat matte consistency on your lips. I did have to reapply at least twice, but that was during a long day. I would like to buy this product again in a red color.

Shade selection: #101 (bubble gum pink), #113 (pale beige nude)
- long wearing
Comments: This line of lipsticks smell like potpourri. Not my cup of tea, but at least it fades quickly. Aside from that, 101 is a pretty shade of pink. It also feels creamy for a matte - no tugging at the lips and you can even feel the product move when you put your lips together. These are very easily apply. 113 is the perfect beige nude and very creamy as well, though not quite opaque.

Bought several of these (#103, 105, 107, 109, and was strongly considering 111, but it's been sold out everywhere I've looked). Really love the color selection, far better than most matte lines. There is also a depth to most of these that is absent in most mattes. They do start off creamy, are easy to apply, and they do dry a bit in 15-20 minutes, so lip prep (quick swipe of lip balm) is wise, but they stay put for a long time.
103 - lovely rosy pink, leans cool
105 - mauve
107 - rich berry
109 - pink coral
Here's hoping they decide to bring these mattes back to the regular line-up. Most of the displays I've seen are nearly sold out. Wish they came in shrink-wrapped tubes, but oh well. For $5.49 (at Walgreens), I'm not complaining too much.

I bought 113 for my (currently) NC20-NC25 complexion. This reminds me of MAC Myth, except 113 is less opaque and perhaps slightly darker. So maybe it's more appropriate to say it's a cross between MAC Myth & Peachstock. It has pink, beige, and peach tones to it. On me, it pulls peachy beige. Kinda looks like concealer on me.
The consistency is why I rated so low. It's slippery - and not in a good moisturizing way. I mean, it transfers easily (onto my teeth and slides around the lips too much). The semi-matte texture is not flattering on dry or wrinkled lips.
This was not opaque enough to cover my extremely pigmented lips, but was enough to wash out my complexion a tad.

i got 113 because im a nude lip girl. im nc20 and this is just barely too dark of a nude for me. it could work on me but it's not what i particularly look for in a nude. it's not bad. it did feel kinda grainy though.

This is a review for the Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipsticks in shades 109 and 110. Although these lipsticks are advertised as being matte, I find that they're quite creamy and nowhere near as drying as most matte lipstick formulas. In fact, they're not drying at all, which is a nice advantage. The lipsticks do have a light melon scent, which while not terrific, isn't terribly unpleasant either. Both 109 and 110 are vibrant shades in the orange family.
109: a rich burnt orange color.
110: a bright pinkish-reddish-orange is the best way to describe this shade. It's fairly unique as far as drugstore lipstick shades go.
I can honestly say that I don't have any shades like this in my collection and I have a lot of orange lipsticks, both from MAC and the drugstore. I would say that these lipsticks have something to unique to offer both in shade variety and finish. Like other matte lipsticks, they don't have any shine or gloss, but unlike other matte lipsticks, they don't suck the moisture out of your lips and leave them looking dry and parched. These lipsticks are also highly pigmented with opaque coverage and are a new drugstore favorite of mine.

The only reason I took off a lippie was because of the perfumy taste. Other than that I really liked these lipsticks. The formula is matte but not dry and chalky feeling on lips. I have 101 which is a creamy soft pink nude and 111 a fiery red.

Most matte lipsticks that I've ever encountered have been dry, heavy or chalky. But not this one: this lipstick is surprisingly creamy and smooth for a matte. It wears very well and does not cake. No offensive taste or fragrance. And the price can't be beat. It does bleed a little, but I did leave off the lipliner today so I won't hold it against the lipstick too much.
I bought shade 104, which is a rice rosy mauve that looks great with my skin tone. There's only 6 or so shades to choose from. Given how great the formula is, it's a shame that the color selection is so limited: otherwise I'd definitely pick up other shades.

I picked up the shade 113 which is a light beige pink. Alone, this shade makes me look dead on my nc35-30 complexion so I like to mix it with my darker pink/peach lipsticks. Formula is creamy and glides on smooth. I don't care for the scent; kind of fruity and soapy. Packaging comes in a bright red tube similar to the lasting finish and original kate miss lipsticks. Wouldn't repurchase this shade in particular but I would try out other colors because I love the formula.

These took a few months to get to the US, and I knew I wanted shade 107 because it's so popular in the UK. I found a larger display at Walgreens, but there is also a smaller display which only has 5-6 shades. What's different between these and the original Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipsticks is a matte red tube, the scent is now a melon (or watermelon), and the finish is more of a velvet than completely matte. I chose shades 107 (softer burgundy), and 104 (mid tone mauve pink). They go on very smoothly and I do like the change in scent. These are around $6 or less in most stores, and I think they're very good for the price. The two I bought are pigmented and long lasting, and they somewhat remind me of Burberry Lip Velvet lipsticks.
