SWATCHES + IMPRESSION: Rimmel London The Only 1 Lipsticks

I've featured these last month in my launch post, I'm pretty sure! They ARE Rimmel's latest lipstick range! I was quite excited to see them, since I generally have good impressions with similar slim-type packaged lipsticks! (*ノ▽ノ)

Since, I've received 6 shades to trial! I feel like I haven't used them tooo much, so I can't say that this is a detailed review, however I do have an idea what they're like! Thought I'd share!

RIMMEL LONDON The Only 1 Lipsticks ($17.95/12 shades) reminds me a lot of the now discontinued REVLON Lip Butters ($21.95) -- from the slim-type packaging to formula.

Peachy Beach, Best of the Best, Pink a Punch, It's A Keeper, Naughty Nude, You're All Mine

The formula is creamy, moisturising, glossy and pigmented. Nothing too over the top. I tend to blot the brighter/bolder shades as they can apply to be very creamy, and so can slide around quite a bit on the lips. If I don't blot, the chances of bleeding and smearing is higher! Not to mention, I wouldn't want my whole lip stuck all over my favourite Grill'd burger (disclaimer: not sponsored!). :P

So that's my 2 cents so far, for these lippies! Now, onto swatches! (*^▽^*)

This isn't a bad shade at all. It does a pretty good job at brightening up my complexion, I think!

To me, this shade is very much like a my-lips-but-better colour. I don't really mind it, but it's definitely not at all close to being a favourite pick though.

Extremely similar to It's A Keeper, this one. But I think this one's less berry-toned, or mauve-like. I think this shade looks a lot like my natural lip colour... and I don't quite like the look of my natural lip colour, so anything like this, is strictly forbidden!

One of my faveeeeeeeeeeees! You guys know I LOVE coral lippies, so corals are real welcomed to my stash! This shade is quite a true coral, a bit orange-y, LOVE!

Bright, warm-toned pink. This is the warm-toned version of a typical barbie-doll pink!

A really lovely blue-toned red! This, and Peachy Beachy, are my top favourite picks of all the 6 shades provided!

All in all, to me, these are like a smaller range of the Lip Butters. However, of course, costing at 3/4 of the Lip Butters' prices, but then the shade range isn't as wide!

Personally, I think they're nice lipsticks to have, although as a budget-queen, they're still a little out of my budget range! If you can afford them, go ahead and try out one or two to see if you like em'! Or, if you're broke [like me], perhaps waiting until a 1/2 price sale at Chemist Warehouse, or 3 for 2 at Priceline!

Those sales shouldn't be hard to spot~

This post was supposed to be posted over two weeks ago, along with my video, but I've lagged it sooo much! My apologies!

Here's my vid, if you'd like to see all them live-swatching action happening:

Hope this post helped! Let me know what you think!


P.S. I know my brows are strong in these photos, overdrew them, woops!
