Rimmel Only 1 Matte Lipstick Collection

I am lipstick obsessed, I don't feel as though I need to make anyone aware of this because if you have read my blog within the last 6 months, there has been a lot of references to that fact. One type of lipstick I have become more and more a fan of is a good Matte lipstick.

Rimmel, who have clearly been listening to my moans of wanting to find a new Matte Lipstick, have come up trumps with their brand new collection called The Only 1 Matte*, featuring 9 gorgeous shades, some of which are just perfect for Autumn and Winter. And yes, I did just say there are 9 of them!

Packaged inside these bright red cases, which you most definitely will not miss on the shelves, the lipsticks are not your usual shape, gone is the oval bullet shape and in comes something which looks more like a lipbalm with a slanted bullet, but still applies as any lipstick does. The shades themselves are much more pigmented than I expected to find and really easy to apply. I often find with some Matte Lipsticks that it is hard to drag across your lips and instead of feeling super smooth, it instead feels as though the lipstick has stuck to every possible piece of dry skin. Not so with these. They are smooth and sleek when applied and until it dries, that matte feeling doesn't come about. Once it has dried and we are talking just a minute or two, the staying power is really quite good and again, I was pleasantly surprised by this. I only felt I needed to re-apply after eating my lunch and then again when I went out of an evening.

So the shades are called:
  • 110 – Leader of the Pink: A bright candy pink, with a bit of depth to it
  • 120 – Call the Shots: This is a red-toned pink, which is quite bright
  • 200 – Salute: This is a slightly pink-toned nude, perfect for everyday wear
  • 500 – Take the Stage: A classic vampy red, perfect for Christmas parties
  • 610 – High Flyer: Quite a dusky rose nude, very pretty
  • 700 – Trendsetter: A lighter brown-toned nude, also great for a low-key look
  • 750 – Look Who’s Talking: A rich milk chocolate shade
  • 810 – The Matte Factor: A deeper, darker, richer red than Take the Stage
  • 800 – Run the Show: A vibrant purple/plum shade

Swatches from L to R - Run The Show, Matte Factor, Call the Shots, Look Who's Talking, Trendsetter, Leader of the Pink, Salute, High Flyer and Take the Stage.  The top swatch is taken with a flash and the bottm is without. It is really hard to choose a favourite shade because they are all just lovely.  But there are three for me which stand out and they are Trendsetter, Look Who's Talking and The Matte Factor, all of which are totally different shades but all are the ones I wear the most.

These lipsticks are currently on offer at Boots for just £4.99 each and a buy one get one half price Rimmel deal, so if you want to try them, now is the time to do it!
