I am a big fan of the original The Only 1 lippies. They have a creamy but pigmented formula with a shiny finish. I have a full review of them here. Now, we have have a newer verion in the form of the Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick!

These come in a red matte bullet in the same shape as the original with the colour of the lipstick in a band at the base.

The Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick has a similar distinct fragrance to its predecessor. Be aware, it is potent!

The bullet is diagonally shaped, which I really like. Here in Ireland we can get our mitts on 9 shades of these lippies. The colour choices are nothing new. They range from nude, pink, red to deeper reds. Of course, as you can guess from the name, these lipsticks are of the matte variety. I have a few to show you in action here so you can see them up close and applied to the lips.

I am a big fan of the formula of these. Just like the original, they are pigmented, creamy and easy to apply.

Even though they have a matte finish, they don’t feel drying or pull on the lips. Because they are more creamy though, they will move around when you eat or drink. But, you are left behind with a stain. If you aren’t a fan of the liquid lipstick trend because of the dryness but still want a matte finish to the lips. These could be of interest to you 🙂

The Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick (s) retail for €8.99. You can get them instore or online from Boots here. Boots are running an offer at the moment with Rimmel. The products are two for €12 across the range!

I was in looking for new releases in Boots recently and these caught my eye. They are the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints.

Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints

The packaging reminded me of the lip paints Sleek had out a few years ago which I loved. Or like the Too Faced Melted lipsticks which I never tried but I know people had mixed feelings about them. Again, like the L’Orèal True Match Highlight which I spoke about last week here. The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are something I can’t get much information about online. The States are calling them Color Jolts and have had them for a while now. If you do want to see some extra info or swatches. But, I thought I would throw my Irish two cents in, just in case too 🙂

We have five shades to choose from in the range. I picked up two of them to try because they were on buy one get on half off.

They have an angled sponge tipped applicator and the product comes out of the middle. Feels nice to apply with, but it will get a bit messy after a few uses.

I went with 110 ‘Never Bare’ which is a nude pale pink colour. They also have a brown nude in the collection.

This one is 120 ‘Fight Me Fuchsia’. I chose this because for some reason this type of hot pink always draws me in. I don’t know why 🙂

Here they are swatched side by side on my arm to give you an idea of the difference and the opaqueness of the colour.

The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are to me a creamy pigmented gloss. They apply nicely and don’t feel sticky or uncomfortable on the lips. They also smell like watermelon which I quite like. But, if you are not into strong scents, that could be a deal breaker for you. As they are a gloss they do move. But, the pigment does stain, so when the gloss fades, you do have some residual colour left over.

The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are in Boots stores at the moment but haven’t popped up on the Irish website just yet. They are priced at €7.49. You can check out the other selection of colours on the UK website here though.

What do you think?

These are the new Maybelline Color Show Crayon Kohl Liners.

Maybelline Color Show Crayon Kohl Liners

Looking online, the Maybelline Color Show Crayon Kohl Liners come in 9 colours, Maybelline have them all on their American website here. And as usual they seem to be slightly different to what we have gotten in Ireland, this always confuses me, but sure look 🙂 They don’t seem to be on the Boots website as of yet though and I could only find 6 different colours in my local Boots. At the minute they are doing buy one Maybelline product get another half price which is nice too. That means there will another new Maybelline product post this week, so keep an eye out 🙂

I have 5 of the new Maybelline Color Show Crayon Kohl Liners to show you today. According to Maybelline they ‘Color Show Kohl Liner is the hottest new way to create statement eyes. The brightest colors. The easiest glide. Creamy, rich color has never been this precise’.

The shade 520 is a light sea foam colour. If you follow me on social media, you know I have been loving putting this in my waterline for a bit of a pop at the minute.

There was also a matte black on the stand too, which I didn’t pick up.

 

In my opinion the Maybelline Color Show Crayon Kohl Liners are super creamy and really pigmented. They are really blendable and apply smoothly and easily onto the skin and even onto the waterline.

The color range is pretty, particularly 520 which is probably my favourite 🙂

I did swatch them all together on my arm and then after taking photos and giving them time to set, I wiped across them.

irish beauty websitestop irish bloggers

As you can see they all smudged so they definitely don’t set. I have used a couple of them on my water line and they do last pretty well considering. For me, using them on my lash line would mean setting them with a powder I think though.

I can’t link them yet unfortunately, but I picked them up in my local Boots and they cost €4.49 each but I did get them on the buy on get one half price deal.

Do the Maybelline Color Show Crayon Kohl Liners float your boat? Let me know 🙂

I went and bought 3 of the new Rimmel ‘The Only One Lipstick (s)’ (they were on 3 for 2 in Boots) and THEN I went and bought 3 more, cos I really liked them…and they were on 3 for 2 🙂

Rimmel are always bringing out new shades of lipstick, but to have a whole new formula is not a regular thing. The title of them is pretty strong statement, right? Saying they are pretty much the only lipsticks we will need in our lives.

The formula of the Rimmel The Only One Lipsticks for me is amazing. They are opaque,smooth and really comfortable on the lips. They go on quite glossy, but do die down to a more satin finish. They also last really well, and leave behind a tint to the lips when the lipstick wears away which I really like.

If I was to change anything about the lipstick, it would be the shape of them. As they are a creamy formula, I would much prefer a bullet shape as it would give you a sharper application.

They smell very strongly of the familiar Rimmel lippie fragrance, so that’s something to be wary off if you’re not a fan of the smell. It does disappear  when they’re on your lips a minute though.

Onto the lippies. I have six of the shades. There is 15 colours to choose from on boots.ie although I only saw eight of them in store.

Overall, I am a big fan of the Rimmel The Only One Lipsticks.

They cost €8.99 but if you’re liking what you see, go to Boots asap and get them on 3 for 2, you’re getting one for free like, it’s a no brainer 🙂
