When it comes to lipsticks, Rimmel London is my favorite drugstore brand! Their formula is hands down the best one and the price is very affordable too! Lately, Rimmel released The Only One Matte Lipstick which comes in 10 shades. I picked up the shade ‘610 high flyer ‘so that I can try the line and decide if I want to pick up more!
This color is a beautiful everyday dusty pink. It has a sweet scent to it that is very similar to the scent of the Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss. The formula is very pigmented and creamy, it glides on smoothly on the lips to give a nice opaque coverage. The packaging looks pretty and the silver tube on the inside is really elegant. I find that for this shade, the color on the outside of the tube is slightly lighter than the color of the lipstick itself so just be aware of that .
If you have small lips like me, you need to be careful when using this large and slanted bullet because applying the lipstick quickly can result in making some mistakes and going out of the line. As I have a small lower lip, I prefer to dab the lipstick instead of swiping it quickly and this method still allows me to get a nice coverage and a beautiful color payoff.
What is great about this formula is that it is very long lasting and it does not give the lips this completely flat matte finish. Even though it is labeled as matte , it has nice semi-matte finish that does not dry the lips at all. It may last through drinking but it will fade after an oily meal .
So overall, I think that Rimmel has done a fantastic job with this release! This lipstick is way better than many high end formulas that I have tried in the past. The price is crazy affordable and this color is the perfect everyday shade that can suit many skintones ! It definitely worth checking out!
