Rimmel London Lipsticks | The Only 1



Lipsticks are something that I enjoy trying out, generally keeping my shade range mostly neutral or soft pinks. Although I like wearing deeper shades occasionally, when I wear anything on my lips I don't stray too far away from my comfort zone. 

A while back I picked up two Rimmel lipsticks from their 'The Only 1' range. Pretty Penny and Mauve-ment are the two shades I purchased. Both lipstick have a smooth and creamy formula. Pretty Penny is my favourite of the two as the colour is more flattering against my skin tone. I would describe this shade as a nice pink with a hint of soft coral in it. This is a great wearable shade for everyday. Mauve-ment has a slightly more dusty pink tone to it, which is pretty but almost too light for my personal liking. It isn't a big deal though because I just apply a little less and blend it with my finger to balance it out. 

When I first started wearing these I quite liked how they appeared on my lips, not dry, cracky or streaky. And even though they didn't last ALL day they did seem to wear nicely. However, when I've tried wearing them recently I've noticed that as they wear they become a bit patchy. I never noticed this before and cannot quite figure out whether I've been doing something different or if it's just always been like that. I still wear these often though because the issue is easily fixed by simply patting the product with my finger. However, if you'd rather not pat the product in every once in a while I would skip these. I would keep in mind that I do not have any high end lipsticks to compare to, though I still can see whether I like the product or not. 

These lipsticks also have a scent that isn't too subtle, but I actually really like the smell of them. It isn't evident after a little while unless you press your lips to your nose (yes I've done that just to smell the lipstick!) But if scent is an issue for you then this may be something to keep in mind. Let's talk about the packaging. I like the simple black packaging with the strip of colour. The lipstick shades all have names on the bottom and that's always nice. The lid is sturdy and I'm not worried about it coming off if I bring it with me in my purse. 

Overall, I do like these lipsticks and I would probably try a few more shades. Even though they aren't the perfect lipsticks, they are affordable and do a decent job for me. Have you tried these? Or do you have any lipstick recommendations?
