Rimmel London Lip Library

I tried Rimmel London’s New Only 1 Matte Lipsticks; all 9 of them, so you don’t have to. Thanks to the lovely people at Rimmel London, these lipsticks landed at my doorstep last week. If you follow me on social media, you will know how busy these beauties have kept me.

I usually shy away from many lipstick shades. I like to stick to the tried and tested shades; shades that look good on me. So to receive these amount of lipsticks in various shades, some I may not have ever considered trying, is great because it means I can experiment for the both of us, and you can go off to get the shades you really like (wink wink).

Before I get into the shades and swatches, let me tell you more about the formula behind the Only 1 Matte Lipsticks – It is a long-lasting, non-drying colour, moisture and wear. It is dead easy to apply and very comfortable to wear. It won’t dry out your lips like other famous matte lipsticks, it actually keeps the lipsticks moisturised, which is a first I have seen with a matte lipstick.

There are 20 colours available, I was sent 9 –

500 Take the Stage

800 Run the Show

700 Trendsetter

200 Salute

810 The Matte Factor

610 High Flyer

750 Look Who’s Talking

120 Call The Shots

110 Leader Of The Pink

 

I didn’t have the time to line my lips like I would usually do. These pictures are just to show off the lipstick shades.

120 Call The Shots

I really like this shade on me. It is my kind of colour. I love the shade of darkvpink and I will definitely be using this lipstick regularly. It kind of reminds me of a similar shade of lipstick I have in my makeup bag already. Call The Shots definitely does call the shots, it is a keeper.

750 Look Who’s Talking

The Look Who’s Talking is a dark brown shade I kind of like. It surprisingly looked good on me. I wasn’t expecting it to look good. I would likely wear this under a brighter shade of lipstick though, but I do like the overall look.

500 Take the Stage

Now this shade right here is my favourite shade of all. I love the shade of pinkish red. It suits my skin tone perfectly. It definitely takes the stage! Take the Stage is my favourite shade!

The swatch photo didn’t come out right and I only just realised while typing this post, in the dead of the night, so apologies for that.

 

610 High Flyer

I love the texture of this lipstick, like I love all the others but that is where my love for it ends. I don’t like this nude shade on me at all. It made me look washed out.

800 Run The Show

Now this purple shade took me outside my safe spot as far as lipsticks are concerned. This is one shade I won’t have dreamt of trying or buying but I kind of like it. It is a lipstick I would wear when I want a completely different look.

700 Trendsetter

This Trendsetter shade is a very nude shade and way too pale for me. It didn’t look good on me at all. This shade is my least favourite of them all. I am sure it would suit others, but it is not my shade.

110 Leader Of The Pink

Leader of the Pink lipstick shade is a Barbie kind of pink. I prefer my pink lipsticks darker, so this shade is not the right for me either. But I bet it would look amazing good on many.

200 Salute

This Salute lipstick surprised me. I didn’t think I was going to like it at all but I did. I think I have found the perfect nude lipstick. And I really like it!

810 The Matte Factor

I really like this shade. It is another favourite of mine. I love the deep red shade. It is perfect for the current season. I can see myself wearing a lot of this shade this autumn/winter.

These shades are great. I am certain there is a shade or 2 for every girl in this collection. My 2 favourite lipstick shades are 810 The Matte Factor and 500 Take The Stage.

  1. I’m not a big lipstick user as I always find them very drying…but I should really try to change that as it definitely gives you a different look. I love the purple one on you by the way! 🙂

  2. I realy loved the Matte Factor on you but I’m patiently waiting until saturday to buy the collection! ( I heard about it 2 months ago!) 😍

  3. When I saw Take the Stage on you, I thought that was my fave. Glad it was yours, too! I am not a lipstick person as I really am clueless! I have a couple of M.A.C shades that I only really wear when I film Youtube videos! I should branch out and try a couple of these. Rimmel is so affordable, it would be a good way to experiment x

  4. I love some of the shades and pretty sure my daughter would pinch them from me. I do need some new lipstick.
