Rimmel The Only 1 Lipsticks Review and Swatches!

Monday, 12 October 2015

When it comes to drugstore makeup, I really rate Rimmel - I rarely dislike their products and often find them comparable to their high-end counterparts. In particular I'm a huge fan of their lipstick collections, so when I found their new 'The Only 1' collection, I had to pick up two to try.

The Only 1 lipsticks are a brand new formula for Rimmel, with Rosa Fruit Oil and Vitamin E to moisturise the lips while providing long-lasting wear. There are also 15 shades on offer, ranging from mauve-nudes to vampy berries.

I absolutely love the packaging - I definitely think it makes the lipsticks look much more expensive than they are, and the cap is really tight and secure. I personally would have preferred the actual lipstick to be in a bullet like traditional lipsticks as I find it difficult to get a precise application with the flat top.

The two shades I have here are 'It's A Keeper' and 'Naughty Nude', which are two of the most neutral on offer. 'It's A Keeper' is more of a mauve shade, whereas 'Naughty Nude' is a brown-nude.
The lipsticks apply opaque, however they feel very light and glossy - almost like a lip balm. They provide intense colour that has incredible longevity - even after eating my lipstick stays in place! They're so comfortable to wear, and have become my go-to lip colours for going to college everyday.

The Only 1 Lipsticks are €8.99 and available now. I'm definitely eyeing up a few more shades to pick up!

Have you tried these new offerings from Rimmel?
