Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick - Review and Swatches

'The Only 1 lipstick' is Rimmel's new lipstick launch in Australia. I haven't tried much from the brand's lip department except the Kate Moss Nude Collection but knowing they are so popular in the beauty community, I was super excited to try this range.

What the company says
•    A no compromise all-in-one lipstick that is challenging the lipstick history.
•    The perfect balance of high impact colour, moisture, all day comfort and staying power
•    Slanted lipstick bullet for an effortless application

The Only 1 lipsticks are very highly pigmented. I love that these lipsticks feel very nice and comfortable on the lips. They are neither matte nor glossy. There's a lot to offer in the shade department with 12 shades to choose from.

These lipsticks last fairly okay on me. I have had coffee and a full meal wearing these and they don't totally disappear like some lipsticks do. They wear off around the mouth, which is okay as I don't mind reapplying.

I have been getting a lot of wear of the red shade 'Best of the Best'. I love that its such a bold color, yet comfortable unlike bold matte formulas. 

What I don't like about these lipsticks is the scent, they have a very strong fruity/fake rose types fragrance, though it doesn't linger much after you wear it and does not bother me that much, it is not my kind of fragrance. Saying that, I actually loved the scent of the Kate Moss Nude lipsticks. If you are sensitive to fragrance you might not like these.

I also don't like the look of the packaging much. The slanted tip also doesn't really help with precise application. 

I have five shades to show you. Swatches in the order (top to bottom) 

  • Peachy-Beachy
  • Pink a Punch
  • Naughty Nude
  • Best of the Best
  • You're all mine

Peachy Beachy, Pink a Punch, Naughty Nude, Best of the Best, You're all mine (top to bottom)

Overall I am pretty happy with the range and would recommend trying it, though it is not the Only 1 lipstick for me. Well, really no lipstick can really earn that place for me.
