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 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 🙂
