What Rimmel says:
” A no compromise all-in-one lipstick that is challenging the lipstick history.
The perfect balance of high impact colour, moisture, all day comfort and staying power. Slanted lipstick bullet for an effortless application.”
What I say:
Pigmentation: 4/5. These are very decently pigmented seeing as they have such a creamy formula. All shades I have are nicely pigmented and not streaky!
Texture: 4/5. I really like the texture of these. They have a thin, lightweight consistency and aren’t drying or cakey on the lips. I would compare them to the creme sheen formula by MAC, but a little lighter to wear. They are super hydrating which I love!
Packaging: 4/5. I quite like the packaging of these. The bottom is the standard lipstick size, so they still fit easily into lipstick storage, and I really like the strip of colour on the black packaging which matches the lipstick shade inside.
Longevity: 3/5. These are not super long wearing lipsticks due to the super hydrating formula. However as you can see in the photos above, they do leave a stain on the lips when they wear off. If you want to improve the lasting power I suggest using a lip liner underneath.
Application: 4/5. The slanted tip does make it easy to apply to the lips, however it is a bit hard to perfect the cupids bow because the lipstick doesn’t have a point to it.
Bang for your buck (quality for the $$): 4/5. I think these are really great quality for the price ($15.95AU). There is a wide variety of shades in the range (12 shades) and they all have great pigmentation and are overall a pretty great formula. Since trialing these 6 I have already picked up another shade, so you can tell I really do like them! A stunning nude pink if you were wondering 😛
The Rimmel London The Only 1 lipsticks are available in supermarkets, chemists, Priceline and more. They retail for $15.96AU full price, but there are always sales on at chemist warehouse and Priceline, so if you want more of a bargain just wait for a sale :).
