My experience with the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate ‘107’ & ‘111’:

Let me first tell you all that both of these are my favorite lipsticks! The pigmentation of these lipsticks are extremely high. One single swipe gives you an opaque color, and multiple swipes gives a bolder look. The texture is creamy and lightweight, and does not feel heavy on the lips. The consistency is smooth and glides easily on lips. These does look a little shiny when applied but they don’t have any shimmer particles in it. They give a semi-matte finish in starting and after a few minutes it turns completely matte without drying out the lips. These lipsticks don’t bleed or smear. The lipsticks stays intact for four to five hours with meals after which it leaves a pretty stain on lips. These lipsticks have a fruity + floral fragrance which can be overpowering for some. Overall, these are just the best red lipsticks on budget!

107‘-

It is a deep berry red with cool undertones. This one is my favorite! It’s a vampy shade and looks so sexy on lips. Plus, the matte finish is so perfect for this shade. This is really a must-have RED! Definitely not for the faint hearted. This shade is so gorgeous that, when I applied it for the first time everyone asked about this shade. Even after the lipstick fades away, it gives you berry stained lips-look which is pretty awesome. It gives a semi-matte finish.

‘111’-

It is a medium vibrant Tomato Red shade. This shade is perfect for those who want to try a red lipstick but are skeptical. It goes perfectly from a day to night look. It will suit all skin tones because of the neutral undertone. It is a perfect bright red with a matte finish.
