Review/Swatches: Rimmel The Only 1 Lipsticks*




I am a huge fan of Rimmel lipsticks, and count the Kate Moss Lasting Finish range as one of my favourite collections, so I was overjoyed to receive six lipsticks from the brand new Rimmel The Only 1 range* recently!

This new collection is so-named because it's supposed to be 'The Only 1' you'll ever need! A multi-tasking lipstick with a hybrid formula that combines the best elements of both moisturising and long-wear lipsticks. Rimmel claim The Only 1 lipsticks excel in the following all-important areas:

  • provide Moisture that's vitamin-enriched
  • Intense, vibrant, high-impact Colour
  • Long-wearing, stays true to colour for hours
  • Is a lightweight Comfortable formula that glides on, isn't heavy or dry



I've been trialling these lipsticks for about two weeks and my conclusions are resoundingly positive. First of all, I'm impressed with the formula Rimmel have created. I agree that the texture is lightweight and glides on easily, and it definitely isn't heavy or dry. In fact, when I first apply it, there's a somewhat 'wet' feel, but this goes away as the lipstick seems to set. There is certainly a lovely moisturising quality to The Only 1 lipsticks. The formula contains Vitamin E and Rosa fruit oil, and it feels like they really do their job!

In terms of colour, again, this range is a winner. I found the colours to be intense (especially Pink A Punch and Best of the Best) and highly pigmented. These were also fairly long-lasting on me. I have a habit of rubbing my lips together a lot throughout the day, which wears away normal lipsticks, but even with that, the colour was still vibrant, to the point where I would look in the mirror and be shocked it still looked that fresh. I found that certain shades lasted longer than others, in particular the intense shades mentioned above, whereas Naughty Nude and It's a Keeper didn't have quite the same staying power. I still had to re-apply after eating but that's to be expected. I find this range very comfortable to wear, and love that when it does wear off, my lips were left with a lovely stain, so they didn't look completely bare. This is great if you're too busy to re-apply your lippie throughout the day.

I found the circular shape of the product in the bullet meant application was slightly trickier than applying lipsticks that have a pointed tip. I had to take care around the edges and the cupid's bow in particular. However, that's where the Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lipliners come into the picture. Three new shades have been added to the already-existing Exaggerate line specifically with The Only 1 lipsticks in mind. These new shades are Peachy-Beachy*, Call Me Crazy and Under My Spell.


Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lipliner in Peachy-Beachy


There are 12 shades in The Only 1 lipstick range. Here are the six I've been wearing:

  • Naughty Nude - a natural looking nude with a hint of pink
  • Peachy Beachy - a bright peachy coral
  • You're All Mine - a feminine, bright pink
  • It's A Keeper - a soft mauve pink
  • Pink A Punch - a strong, vibrant, bold pink
  • Best Of The Best - a rich deep red







Rimmel The Only 1 lipsticks RRP $15.95 and Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liners RRP $12.95, available now from Priceline, Chemist Warehouse, Target, Kmart, Big W, selected pharmacies and selected Coles and Woolworths.

    1. Thanks, Lily! I really love Naughty Nude. It doesn't last as long as the brighter ones but I still think it's a great MLBB shade.

  3. I love Rimmel's Lip glosses, but have never tried their lipsticks. I tend to go for nude or pink shades for my gloss so I'd go the same for a lipstick. :)
