The Rimmel Only 1 Lipstick + Swatches

I know I've said this multiple times but once more couldn't hurt! Rimmel produce top-notch lip products with this range being one of my most loved lippies from the drugstore. There are a total of 20 flattering shades but today I will be bringing you 7, so here is an in-depth look at these budget beauties that I'm always reaching for.

If I had to pick a favourite out of the bunch, my heart would choose 3; 'Mauve-Ment', 'It's A Keeper' and 'Mauve Over!'. I was all about the nudes for a while there, but my obsession with mauve has completely taken over and I'm not even complaining because they all look utterly gorgeous on the lips! The difference is that 'It's A Keeper' has a slight frosted finish that adds some dimension which gives you the appearance of a fuller pout (great for someone with thin lips like myself!).  

Now we head into the nude category with 'I Dare You' (similar to their Lasting Finish Kate Nude lipstick in '43') and 'Pretty Penny' that complements my fair skin nicely. Nude shades of lipsticks are a must-have in your makeup collection simply because they're so easy to wear and can be paired with ANY makeup look - dramatic or subtle. 

The deeper two shades are what I like wearing on a night out with wispy lashes and a classic winged liner. '90's Baby!' really is your quintessential late 20th century nude lip and it gives me major flashbacks of Britney Spears and the Spice Girls who totally rocked it! 'Easy Does It' on the other hand is less coffee toned and more of a brown-red with the same frosted finish. 

  From top to bottom: 90s Baby!, Mauve Over!, I Dare You, Mauve-Ment, Easy Does It, It's A Keeper & Pretty Penny.

In terms of formula, they just glide over the lips with high colour pay off and feel incredibly comfortable all day long. If you own any of their Only 1 Matte lipsticks (which are also amazing by the way!), they have the same watermelon-cucumber scent that may be overpowering for some but once it's on your lips the scent does dissipate. So if you're on the hunt for a new lippie, this range is truly fantastic in quality and not to mention they're affordable which keeps your wallet very happy! 

Which shade are you loving the look of?
