L-R: Under My Spell, Cheeky Coral, Beachy-Peachy
Rimmel is hands down my favorite drugstore beauty brand, especially if we’re talking lip products! We all know how much love I have for their Exaggerate Lip Liners (here), so when Rimmel announced that they are bringing out a brand new range of lipsticks the excitement was real! The Only 1 (here) lippies claim that they are ‘all-in-one lipstick that offer high impact color, moisture, all day comfort and staying power’. Sounds fab, doesn’t it! Well, I decided to put the bold statement to the test and give three of the 15 shades a whirl. The report goes as follows:

For starters, the shade range is to die for, let me tell you that! There is not much offering for the nude lip lovers, I am afraid, but if you are a bright lipstick wearer, like myself, the range will make you swoon! There are some fab vibrant shades, perfect for the upcoming spring season and the beaut mauve / purples make my heart jump a little. I got my mitts on three of the shades and I love them all to pieces. First, we have Peachy-Beachy, which is a stunning vivid peachy coral that brightens up the complexion beautifully and is a great warmer months lip companion. Cheeky Coral is a stunning coral, which I can imagine would look fab with tan on. My favorite of the bunch is Under My Spell, which gives me serious MAC Rebel (here) vibes and is a gorgeous fuchsia berry color. All lipsticks go on glossy at first but after a few minutes set to a beautiful satin finish.

As much as I love the shades though, I am not sure about the formula. What I give the stamp of approval to would be the moisturizing properties of the lippies. They do feel rather hydrating and don’t dry out the lips, which is a massive plus. The up to five-hour pigmentation is also amazing and I even managed to chomp my way through an entire sushi date once without the need of reapplication! The pigmentation is also on point and one layer is all you need to get full-blown color.

And that’s with the positives, I’m afraid. The Only 1 Lipsticks feel somewhat wet and waxy and I find them quite hard to apply and get an even color. You definitely need a brush, especially for the darker shades, otherwise the colors goes streaky. Even though the lipsticks are branded as ‘lightweight’, they actually feel rather heavy on the lips and are not particularly comfortable in my opinion. What I am mostly on the fence about these babies though is the scent. It has the typical ‘Rimmel lippy’ scent but on these it is so strong and overpowering that it made me sick at one point. It will have to be a ‘no’ from me ladies but definitely go give these a swatch and see for yourself. If you can bare the smell and the texture, some of these shades are definitely worth giving a try.

Have you tried the Rimmel The Only 1 lipsticks yet? Which is your fave shade of the three?

Lots of love,
Andrea

  1. Personally, I'm a matte lipstick lover but these shades look so lovely especially Peachy-Beachy, too bad the formula isn't that good but I did like their lip liners, thanks for sharing :)

  5. The colours look pretty but I can tell the darkest shade didn't apply very smoothly so I can see what you mean in your review. The perfect lippie is hard to find!

  11. Shame you didn't like them as I love Rimmel, their lippys always have a funny smell, the apocolips range smell like the paint you would use in infant school.
