Rimmel #111 (Kiss of Life) Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss
Rimmel #111 (Kiss of Life) Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss

Rimmel #111 (Kiss of Life) Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss ($5.49 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, warm, orange-toned red with a matte finish. Chanel Coromandel is more orange. Guerlain Callipgrahy Eye & Lip Palette #6 is very similar. Guerlain Genna is a bit more orange. CoverGirl Hot is less orange.

It has mostly opaque color coverage (you can see just a shadow of my lip freckle coming through), and of the three shades I picked up of this formula, this one was the best-performing and had the better texture, though it was still a little off to me. The scent of this was very waxy, while the others had a kind of fruity scent. It was creamy enough to apply, but not so creamy that it was prone to bleeding or feathering while worn or that it would slip around. This shade wore for five and a half hours, and then it left behind a stain, so while I did experience a slight ring of color on the outer portion of my lips, it wasn’t as noticeable because of the residual stain.

I only bought three shades of this formula, but because there’s an odd graininess in the formula and an uncomfortable feel on the lips, I don’t anticipate buying more for review.  At the price point, if a shade catches your eye, it may be worth trying, and you do get more than the average lipstick (0.14 oz.).  The graininess combined with the drying formula is such a shame, because the shade range, thus far, has been spectacular.

  3. Danielle

    LOVE THIS! Now I have to get it!

  4. kristanna

    I have 110 in the bright coral shade and its great. Im gonna go back for this red. very pretty. Looks great on u Christine!

  5. Pamela

    Nice color but I would never buy anything with that overrated, overpaid woman’s name on it.

  6. the color is amazing! i’m in love!

  7. Paige

    I bought all 3 of them the other day, they all look amazing with my skin tone, I love the colors!

  8. inaya

    is it similar to MAC Lady danger?

  9. Malia

    I have all three you’ve reviewed so far and they’re not that icky on me, but I wouldn’t wear them or even try to for nearly that long!

  10. Kristin

    I just got this shade the other day and I am in love! It’s a perfect red and I didn’t notice any graininess at all! I thought overall it was a great buy.

  11. Tessa

    I picked up 102 and 103 yesterday, but it looks like I’ll have to go back for this one as well! What a stunning red!

  12. Alicia

    I bought and fell in love with 107…and it looks like I need this one too! Gorgeous red! I didn’t have the same problem with the grittiness, but the scent is a little weird (though I didn’t notice it once it was on).

  13. Elizabeth

    Weird. I picked this up today in the nude shade, and I thought it was so smooth! I can’t pick up on any grittiness at all.

  14. Rachael

    I love this colour, so will definitely be picking this up. Odd that the texture is a bit off. The original Kate Moss lipsticks in the black tube are amazing both texture and colour-wise.

  15. GK

    The color on me was very intense & I really enjoyed it. But the texture was difficult & the smell was so offensive that I returned it. It wasn’t fruity like the original formula, it was rancid. Such a shame that they didn’t duplicate the Black tube Kate.

  16. blueraccoon

    I found the one I purchased, apparently I got 105, and I tried it on tonight – I did get that weird graininess when I applied it, but I don’t notice it as much once it’s on my lips. It is a bit drying, though, and I’m less certain I like the color I purchased; I don’t think ti’s very flattering. But it feels okay on my lips, so I may go back for another shade.

    • At least you did notice it initially – I totally expected that for some, no big deal, others, bigger deal. I can’t get past, “there’s something weird feeling on my lips.”

  17. Jay

    The smell isn’t even fruit to me, it’s just… bad. it reminds me of a cheap chapstick or lipgloss I had as a preteen. Terrible. I bought 2(104 and 107) and am returning both despite loving the colors. So sad, especially since I use the regular Kate Rimmel lipsticks regularily (you must all buy 01 and 10).
