Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick 122 Stylish & 080 One Of A Kind Review & Swatches

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick 122 Stylish and Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick 080 One Of A Kind


Hi everyone!

I am back with my second review after quite some time.

I love hoarding lipsticks and Anamika gave me the chance to share my experiences with all you guys. I had picked up some Rimmel lipsticks and was meaning to review them for a long time. So here I am at it finally!

Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks can be those budget friendly lipsticks that most of us keep looking for. This range has some really good shades, I feel.


Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks


The two shades I shall be taking up for review are:

  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick no 122 named STYLISH
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsstick no 080 named ONE OF A KIND

About Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick:

“Lasting Finish Lipstick now delivers up to 8 hours staying power.  The improved formula incorporating Colour Protect technology gives up to 25% more colour impact. Enriched with 50% longer-wearing colour-boost pigments so you will turn heads wherever you go. Intensity, smoothness, shines and up to 8 hours wear – Lasting Finish Lipstick truly has it all!”

Price: 215 INR for STYLISH, 250INR for ONE OF A KIND

Quantity: 4g each

Packaging: The usual dark lipstick case with a silver rim around, embossed on top is the Rimmel brand emblem. Twist up works pretty well, closes perfectly; great for carrying it in your handbag. The bottom of the bullet bears the shade number the background being the colour of the shade. This makes it easier for you to hunt for it at rush-hour!

Texture: Satin-matte finish; a speck of moisturizing effect on lips. But for better effect and smooth application I wear a balm underneath the lipstick, sometimes. It is lightweight with good pigmentation that will definitely cover pigmented lips well. (I have pigmented lips)

My views on the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick 122 Stylish & 080 One Of A Kind:

The texture is matte-creamy and the lip colour is well pigmented; gives a smooth coverage even to pigmented lips. The lipstick lasts for up to 4 hours on my lips without meals. Re-application is required as these are semi-moisturizing and rub off after couple of hours.

Shade STYLISH: This shade is half way into a bronze-brown and a pinkish brown; contains micro silver shimmers. However the shimmers don’t look OTT or make you look like a Disco Ball. I have worn it in daylight at work and it seemed to look quite subtle. Fair skin tones would look very elegant with this shade on their pout. The application, lets say, would determine where you can carry it off to. Makes sense?

Shade ONE OF A KIND: This shade is a lovely blue based mauvish pink that would look great not only on skin tones that are cooler, but will also enhance the warmer tones as well. This does not contain shimmers and gives a satin smooth semi-matte finish leaving lips a wee bit moisturized. Another great shade for fair to medium skin tones, this one is.

Now, it has been raining in Hyderabad and my pictures hence, failed to pick up sufficient light for the colour to show. Rimmel Lasting Finish Shade One of a Kind is more pinkish than seen in the swatches. Try both shades at counters if you like it here primarily.

I have tremendously dry lips and prefer to wear my Neutrogena Lip Balm underneath my lipsticks. You can skip your lip balm if your lips do not dry out too much.

A quick overview of what works and what doesn’t for me with respect to these lipsticks:

What I like about Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick 122 Stylish & 080 One Of A Kind :

  • Affordable
  • Great pigmentation
  • Lasts fairly long
  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Does not dry out lips
  • Travel safe packaging

What I like about Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick 122 Stylish & 080 One Of A Kind :

  • Weird smell (though that does not bother me much)
  • Availability only at select counters and even online availability is now increasingly problematic
  • May settle into fine lines
  • May bleed

Give them a try; worth a shot at the price I’d say.

Overall rating 4/5 for both
