Swatch Saturday! (on a Sunday) #3

Happy Swatch Saturday! (In theory)

I haven't done one of these in so long, and I'm hoping to get back into it.  I know it's not Saturday, but I obviously cannot turn back time and post it yesterday!  Though, that would be awesome.

The other day before my Attempt at Not Spending Money challenge (I promise I'm not cheating!), I picked up Rimmel's Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 33.  I've been searching for a nice medium toned pink for some time now, and I've heard so much about the Kate lipsticks from Rimmel.  All the rage just lured me to pick it up!

At first glance, the lipstick swatches pretty nicely.  I can see some moisture in it and the pigmentation is great.  Also, the color here seems like it would be okay on my skin tone, but did lean a tad cool.  I have slight yellow undertones, so cool toned lipsticks don't always suit my skin.

 The packaging on this is super cute.  I like the plain black tube with a simple handwritten detail.  This simple packaging is my favorite kind of packaging.  It doesn't feel cheap whatsoever.

The final and most important test was actually putting it on my lips.  Unfortunately, the swatch lied a bit.  Okay, a lot.  The color came out way too cool toned for my skin and looked like I put some neon lipstick on.  I did get it to fit my skin tone by putting a base of Rimmel's Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in Enchantment.  The other issue is that it catches on the dry patches of your lips.  Make sure you exfoliate first!!  The result can be found in the picture above.

In conclusion, this lipstick is pretty solid in my book.  The other day, I wore this combo to a wedding, and it turned out really pretty.  It's very moisturizing, and will look wonderful on cooler skin tones. 

Thank you very much for reading!  Don't forget to comment below telling me if you've used this lipstick before!  What should I swatch for my next Swatch Saturday?  xx
