Lets get talking about the new lipstick revolution by Rimmel – The Only 1 Lipstick. These gorgies landed on my beauty desk a few days back and I have been trying them out to give you a fair review of what I think of the lipsticks and honestly, I have been swooning over the colours. The Only 1 Lipstick range comes in 15 stunning hues and are more bent towards brighter and vibrant shades. Rimmel is one of my favourite drugstore brands for its lipstick line-up and this is one brilliant addition. Launched in the UK in Sep 2015 it has now landed on the shelves in the UAE starting Feb onwards. It is a range that is permanent and is here to stay.
The packaging looks edgy in a black slanting tube with a colour band towards the bottom that easily helps to identify the colour. A great add-on indeed and quite different from the usual lipstick line-up by Rimmel! The overall look is pretty classy for a drugstore range and is great for travel as its quite light weight and has a tight closure.
The Only 1 lippies have a hybrid formula, meshing moisturization with something that’s comfortable to wear and lasts for long hours. The lipstick consists a blend of lightweight oils that helps the lipstick glide on easily and feels feather light on the lips more like your not wearing anything at all. The finish is pigmented, buttery smooth, moisturizing and long-lasting. To get you through the dry weather during winters the lipstick also contains Rosa fruit oil and vitamin E to keep your lips smooth and works on the lips while you have the lipstick on. For a satin finish I like dabbing the lips with the tissue after the application. It helps the lipstick stay in place for longer and if your not someone who likes sheen then this technique makes it look semi-matte. The colour pay-off is by far the best bit.
Two thumbs up for pigmentation, packaging and the overall performance. The shades that I received are Cheeky Coral, One of a kind and You’re all mine. With Valentines being just around the corner you might want to get your hands on these beauties and get your bang for the buck. It retails at a very affordable price and you don’t have to burn a hole in your wallet for to get your hands on a lipsticks that offers a luxe finish. My fav shade is You’re the one!
Hope you enjoyed the read … would love to hear from you about your fav drugstore lippies?!
