Only One Matte


This was quite an exciting Rimmel launch for this matte lip lover, I wanted to post the swatches straight away BUT not all lipsticks in a range are always created equal and I wanted to give them a good test run first. I’m happy to say that I didn’t find a dud in the entire collection.. all beautifully creamy, opaque in that new hybrid ‘modern matte’ way. You could compare them to the Revlon Matte Balms in texture if you’re looking for a point of reference but I prefer a lipstick in a bullet and the shade range is a little better here too.

I’d wear them all providing I could find a matching lip liner – it’s 2016, nobody’s wearing lipstick without a lipliner, right? A recent launch that genuinely deserves the hype, these lipsticks are £6.99 each and are currently on a 3 for 2 offer at Boots – SHOP HERE

    Great swatches but you don’t actually mention the brand! Having clicked through to boots I can see its Rimmel so will definitely pick a few up x

    I was also wondering which brand this is as it is not mentioned. I can easily imagine wearing all the shades, all look amazing.

      the colours are made so much better by the fact that they’re so opaque, I think

    I always use a flesh coloured lip liner. I even put it on my entire lip if I really want the true Color of the lipstick to show. Try it, you won’t be disappointed.

    I recenty bought the nuance “Trendsetter” and I really like the colour and the consitency of this lipstick. Light colours like this I allways wear without a lipliner.
