Comparison | Rimmel Lipsticks




Rimmel London is by far my favorite drugstore brand for lipsticks. The brand has several lines of lipsticks; Lasting Finish, Lasting Finish by Kate Moss, Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss, and Moisture Renew. There are a couple others in the lines but I consider those to be glosses.

Here's an overview and a quick review of the lipsticks and which ones I would recommend. Note: I do not own any of the Moisture Renew Lipsticks, my opinion is based solely on the ingredients of that line.







The Lasting Finish Collection


Retails for around $4.99






Pros:

  • My Holy Grail drugstore lipstick formula
  • Smooth texture
  • Easy to wear
  • Lasts about 3 hours on my lips before needing re-application

Cons:

  • Small shade range
  • Slight scent
  • Parabens


Recommend It! (If you don't mind parabens)





The Lasting Finish By Kate Moss Collection


Retails for around $4.99






Pros:

  • Creamy texture
  • Applies smoothly and easily on the lips
  • Good shade selection
  • Wears for around 4 hours until re-application is needed

Cons:

  • Parabens


Recommend It! (If you don't mind parabens)





The Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss Collection 


Retails for around $4.99






Pros:

  • Watermelon scent
  • Applies smoothly on the lips
  • Available at most drugstores, Target, and Walmart
  • Lasts about 4 to 5 hours on the lips before re-application is needed

Cons:

  • Small shade selection
  • Contains Parabens


Recommend It! (If you don't mind parabens)





Moisture Renew Collection

Retails for around $5.49




Pros:

  • Large shade selection
  • Available at most drugstores, Target, and Walmart

Overall Recommendations if you're not concerned about Parabens: 

1st Pick: The Lasting Finish Collection
2nd Pick: The Lasting Finish by Kate Collection
3rd Pick: The Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Collection



If you're concerned about Parabens:

Skip Rimmel lipsticks and try Wet n Wild lipsticks, they're paraben free!
