The New Rimmel Matte Lipsticks You Need To Know About*

Let me start by saying I am matte mad. I have so many matte lip products and I am forever buying more. I like the look, the staying power and really, can you EVER have too many?

I can tell you that the answer to that question is a resounding ‘no’ and I feel that Rimmel really shared my sentiments on this when they kindly sent me their new Only 1 Matte Lipsticks. That’s nine new shades to add to my collection and they are all truly beautiful.

What I like best about this range is the selection of colours. I can be a creature of habit when it comes to picking lipsticks and if I am being totally honest, the last five shades that I’ve bought have probably been nudes. An injection of colour was long overdue and these lipsticks are certainly that. From brights to darks (and even including a purple, which I cannot wait to have an occasion for), there is a range of colours for everyone.

In terms of the formulation, I have cannot pick any faults. I have tried matte lipsticks before that feel that they are completely draining all moisture from my lipsticks, but that definitely isn’t an issue with these. I found that they have quite a creamy texture, glide on easily and are non-drying.

Given this, I was interested to see how well they would last. I have been alternating between the different shades at work and seeing how far through the day I get before the colour starts to wear off.

Most days I have my makeup on by 7.30am, but by lunch time, my lipstick was still intact. They offer high coverage and yet feel so light and comfortable that at points I’ve even forgotten that I have any on.

The colours are all so flattering, but if I had to pick a favourite, I think that might just have to be Salute. It’s a really subtle and versatile pinky shade which works well against my pale skin tone. All of the lipsticks have great names but I also especially like this. It reminds me of the Little Mix song, although luckily for anyone in my vicinity doesn’t induce any singing!

I’ve swatched the other lipsticks for you to see below;

From top to bottom: Looks Who's Talking, The Matte Factor, Leader of the Pink, High Flyer, Salute, Take the Stage, Trendsetter, Call the Shots, Run the Show

Which is your favourite?

You can now pick these lipsticks up for yourself at Superdrug stores for £6.99 which I personally think, considering how fantastic these are, is an absolute bargain!
