The Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Nude Lipstick Collection Has Landed (Five US-Exclusive Shades)

I know that so many of us have been waiting for the US arrival of the new Rimmel Kate Nude Lisptick Collection (this collection has been available in the UK since 2015), so I'm delighted to tell you that this collection has finally landed in the US, and I have even more exciting news for you today!

(retail: $4.97 each)

Thanks so much to reader Lydia for kindly sharing the pic above of the in-store dislay that she found at her local Walmart on 5/23 (apologies for not posting sooner, Lydia--the Memorial Day sales overtook the blog last week!). As you can see, there are six shades in the Walmart display, plus the clear Lip Conditioning Balm (which has been out in the US for a while).

  • The shades in the Walmart in-store display are: 40, 41, 42, 45, 48, and 49.
  • The shades available in the UK are: 40, 42, 43, 45, and 48 (all of which you can see swatched over on Really Ree's blog HERE).

When I checked the Walmart website to see if these were available online (they are!), I discovered that there are FIVE US-EXCLUSIVE SHADES, which you can purchase on the Walmart site HERE.

  • The five US-exclusive shades available on the Walmart site are: 41, 44, 46, 47, and 49.
  • The US-exclusive shades available both in-store at Walmart and on the Walmart website are: 41 and 49.

I hope this helps, and if you have spotted this collection in-store at Walmart or anywhere else, I would absolutely love to hear from you!

Thanks again, Lydia, for the super helpful sighting and pic!


  1. It's kind of frustrating when Rimmel won't tell anyone if these were LE or when they'd launch. And I'm sure most people would love the full collection in stock instead of five. What was the point in launching 10 shades if we can only find 5 in stores? I'm ranting. Sorry. lol

    1. They probably didn't know back in 2015 when these were going to launch, since it probably took some time to determine and formulate the additional US shades after the UK launch. We knew they were coming in the first half of 2016 but I'm guessing it took extra time because of the extra shades.

      As for the 5 shades at Walmart vs the 10 shades online, there's very limited space for new products in store (for all brands) so I'm guessing that Coty went with the six shades they thought would perform best. I'm also guessing that when this collection rolls out to other retailers, we may see all ten shades.

    2. Sorry, I meant 6 shades in store at Walmart, not five.

    1. I never saw them on the Rimmel US site to begin with. Were they there at some point? I assumed they were coming soon since we often see things in store before they appear on the brand's site.

  3. Some additional blog swatches I've found:

  4. oh, more blog swatches:

  5. FINALLY!!! Thanks for the info. I had basically given up on them.

  6. I have 5 that my friend send it from Canada last year... I have 40, 42.43, 45 and clear one .
    here is the link if you would like to see

    thanks! I will be getting rest of the collection for sure

  7. Real Tech face and lip set on clearance at Kohl's

    1. Thanks so much! I was half asleep when your comment came through but I HAD to do a blog post because with the code that brings it down to $6.40! I didn't think this would come back in stock after the first time it was on clearance!! Thanks again for the great tip!

    2. LOL No problem. It like just popped up on the site while I was about to purchase another brush. Had to share. I read your site when I'm looking for deals and I have found plenty. Thanks for having this available for thrifty shoppers.

  8. I'm so excited for these! I have been hunting for my most perfect nude! I'm close but haven't found HG!

  9. I love Nude's. Hope I can find them locally.

  10. As always I did like the formula of the lipstick but I chose the wrong color. The shade I chose was too light for me. I would have gone back to choose a darker one but I have enough brown nudes. I want a nude that has a pink hue to it. I am still looking for my "my lips but better" color. I have my eye on one of the new Loreal Exclusive Pinks/Blushes - just waiting for a good sale and coupon :)
