Oh. em. gee, guys! My favourite lipstick of all time has now gone matte. We’ll let that sink in for a moment…So, if you haven’t come across the original highly moisturising The Only 1 lipsticks by Rimmel London, where have you been? They’re affordable, have a great colour range, smell amazing, are highly pigmented and have the staying power like a lip stain, but without the struggle of removing it at the end of the day. Rimmel London have now released however, the matte equivalent to this beauty. Say ‘Hello’ to The Only 1 Matte Lipstick range*.
With 9 beautiful shades to choose from (swatches below), all at just a mere £4.99, it’s safe to say you can treat yourself and buy them all at the cost of probably two high-end lipsticks, but with the same results.
The Only 1 Matte lipstick range still provides that strong pigmentation we all lust after in a lipstick, the vivid colour payoff, but also a smooth matte finish that doesn’t crack or look cakey! I love the look of matte lips, but because I’m prone to dry lips – especially now the days are getting colder – I tend to avoid them at all costs. But, if a matte lipstick heads my way and it’s moisturising, comfortable to wear and doesn’t cling to dry lips like I do to a pot of Nutella, then I’ll welcome it with open arms.
