Let's just say that I am a little bit of a lipstick lover and hoarder, no girl needs the amount of lipsticks I have in my collection but that certainly won't stop me buying more! Let me introduce you to the latest lipstick line from Rimmel London, The Only 1 Matte collection*. A collection of 9 beautiful shades ranging from nude to deep purple all in a creamy, soft, matte formula. Each shade is lovely and there is really something for everyone whether you're looking for a new everyday nude or a new deep burgundy for the winter months.
I really like the style packaging of the new lipsticks, very sleek and a little different looking, the matte plastic finish is great too. Each lipstick has a very useful colour strip at the base which shows you which shade is inside, a great little feature and very handy indeed. The bullet has been designed to make application easier which I think works really well, the shape and size fits the lip area nicely and allows the product to glide on smoothly and evenly.
The new lipsticks offer the perfect balance of high impact matte colour, moisture, all day comfort and fantastic staying power, I have to say I am very impressed. Each shade is incredibly pigmented and the colour sticks around for hours, it's definitely still there at the end of a long day which involves a lot of eating and tea drinking! I really like the matte lip look at the moment and its really nice to be able to achieve that look in so many different shades whilst keeping my lips moisturised and comfortable at the same time.
I've always been a big fan of Rimmel lipsticks and these are definitely a new favourite in my collection, their fantastic matte formulation and staying power has really won me over as well as the smart, sleek packaging design. My favourite shade has to be Trendsetter just because it is so perfect for everyday, I'm also really enjoying Salute for the days when I want something a little more pink.
