Rimmel The ONLY ONE lipstick review

Rimmel has launched a new line of lipsticks called The Only One. Why such a name? Because it's meant to be the only lipstick you will ever need as it will meet all your needs from a lippie. That's a pretty big claim, but does it deliver? Well, it depends what you're looking for in a lipstick, really.

Colours L/R: 110, 200, 510, 600, 120, 700

The lipsticks are all very pigmented with intense colour pay off, you don't need to swipe the lippies several times to get them to show on your lips. They're also super creamy and very weightless, it almost feels like you're wearing a balm instead of a lipstick. The formulation reminds me a lot of the YSL Rouge Couture line of lippies which retail for, oh I don't know, maybe 10 times the price of these ones. So I'd say in terms of colour and formulation, these lipsticks definitely deliver.

What it does not deliver is longevity. Because it's so creamy it comes off pretty much at first contact with coffee cups, food, cutlery, etc. So if your list of demands from a lipstick includes lasting power, then this is not your Only One. But if you don't mind reapplying your lipsticks every few hours then you can't go past these little beauties.

See below for lots of pictures and swatches of the colours I have.
