Lipsticks, probably the item that I have the most of in my make up collection. I always seem to gravitate towards berry hues and darker colours during the winter months, whilst I reach for more pinks and rose shades in the Summer. I recently got the chance to try the new range of Rimmel only 1 matte lipsticks, which come in a variety of colours from berries to pinks and nudes, so I was spoilt for choice.
This collection of lipsticks gives the wearer high coverage, long lasting high impact colour and an even matte finish on application.
The lipsticks apply really easily and it takes a couple of swipes if you like a heavier coverage. They have a really nice smell, it kind of reminded me of marshmallow and vanilla. I also found they were quite moisturising which is rare for a matte lipstick. Usually you apply them and your lips are drier than the sahara in no time.
With regard to transfer on things like cups, skin etc I found that they were very good. Minimal colour was shifted from my lips. Again i’m quite used to wearing a lipstick and then watching half of it become attached to the cup that I’m drinking from!
I love the colour options in this range, from darker shades to rosey nudes, there’s something to suit everyone
From the picture above the shades are as follows:
750 – Look Who’s Talking – I’d describe this as a berry mocha type colour
810 – The Matte Factor – My favourite of the bunch, a true berry colour perfect for the festive season.
800 – Run The Show – This is purple, not necessarily a colour i’d wear out and about but could be interesting if experimenting with a different make up look.
120 – Call The Shots – A deeper rose colour, think your lips but better.
500 – Take The Stage – A classic red, you can’t go wrong.
110 – Leader Of The Pink – A lighter rose than Call The Shots, really wearable.
610 – High Flyer – A rosey nude.
200 – Salute – Another rose nude, similar to Leader of The Pink but that bit darker.
700 – Trendsetter – Very similar to High Flyer, a classic nude.
These lipsticks are on offer in Boots at the moment for £4.99 instead of £6.99. Snap one up while you can!
