Rimmel introduced a new line up of lipsticks late last year called the Only 1. I recently received two shades to test out and call me converted!
Name: Rimmel London The Only 1 Lipstick
Shade: 300 Listen Up/ 110 Pink a Punch (12 available)
Available at local drugstores (Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, London Drugs)
" Rimmel London introduces new The Only 1, a ground-breaking all-in-one lipstick. Experience the perfect balance of incredible colour, comfort, moisture and wear. No compromise. Join the revolution!"
Packaging: The lipstick is in a black plastic tube with a ring of color that corresponds with the shade. I appreciate this little feature to make it easy to find the shade you want. The shape of the bullet is round so it was a bit difficult getting into the small edges but this may be the only complaint I have of the lipstick. The packaging is pretty traditional and does not prepare you for the awesomeness ahead.
Formula: This is hands down one of my FAVORITE lipstick formulas I've ever tried. I love glossy lips and never jumped on the matte lip bandwagon. Each of these were soft, creamy, and very hydrating on the lips. It feels like swiping on lip balm but with high impact color! It also leaves a shine on the lips that I love.
Scent: There is a sweet scent to this similar to the Rimmel Apocalypse lip stains. It is strong but I LOVE how it smells and I'm glad it's scented. I know a lot of people do not like scented products, so make sure you give it a whiff if fragrances in lipstick bothers you.
The formula contains Rosa fruit oil and Vitamin E to ensure your lips stay moisturized! The formula glides over my lips so smoothly and any lines or cracks I have are hidden. It's one of those types that will blur instead of magnify any dry lips. I can get about 4 hours of wear. but since it is so glossy, it transfers to cups/napkins very easily.
300 Listen Up- This is a beautiful magenta color that is deeper in tone. I think this would be amazing for fall but surprised me with how wearable it is right now. Although it is deeper toned, the brightness of it makes it great for spring and summer as well!
110 Pink a Punch- This shade is a bright medium pink. In the tube it looks much more red based with a deeper tone. However, on the lips I find it a really flattering "barbie pink" for my lips.
Overall, I love the weightless feel on the lips and the gorgeous color! I'd say the claims of a no compromise, all-in-one lipstick is met! The formula is a huge win as it's weightless and moisturizing on the lips. I'd definitely recommend you check these out! Don't let the packaging fool you, these are revolutionary!
I'm eyeing the shade 720 Naughty Nude as I have been on the hunt for a mlbb lipstick and the color looks just perfect. Have you tried these? What are your favorite drugstore lipsticks?
