Rimmel: The Only One Matte Lipstick Review

Rimmel: The Only One Matte Lipstick Review

I’m just going to put it out there - my name is Ellie, and I’m a lipstick addict. I collect all brands, shapes, sizes and colours, and never discriminate when it comes to choosing. Every day I get dressed, but don’t feel whole without a pop of colour on my lips.

Introducing my new favourite, The Only One Matte lipsticks by Rimmel. They glide on like an absolute dream, and unlike most matte lipsticks they don’t dry your lips. Smooth to apply and hydrating once on, this new generation of lipsticks are taking the beauty world by storm..


I was lucky enough to be sent 9 of the new colours (there are 20 in total), so I’ve done a few swatches and wanted to show you all the magnificent colour range. Whilst some people shy away from colour, I embrace it with open arms.

The shades are absolutely divine, and I'm not even ashamed to admit I've worn every single one to work over the past couple of weeks. Below are some swatches of the colours - forgive me for the shaky swatches, I wasn't thinking and did them with my left hand ha ha!

As you can see, they're mostly neutral colours with a few pops of colour coming from Run the Show (my favourite!) and Call the Shots. The one I'll probably wear the least is Leader of the Pink, because pink lipsticks just don't suit me unfortunately.

Which colour is YOUR favourite? x
