Rimmel - The Only 1 matte lipstick review and swatch*

I was recently given the opportunity to try out The Only 1 Matte Lipstick and was sent a few colours to review. I thought the best way as always, is to do a swatch post for my lovely readers so that you are able to see how the colors look and the finish of the product. 

These lipsticks are true matte lipsticks that require only one swipe to deliver even pigment to the lips.  There is a very slight fragrance to them, I can't really pinpoint the scent of them - they aren't sweet or floral scented, it just contains a bit of perfume fragrance.

The one thing I really appreciate about the packaging of these lipsticks is the fact that the colors are shown directly on the outside packaging, leaving the choosing of the colour you want easy. It's hard to go with names and numbers sometimes, so just seeing what is on the outside is great - the colors shown are actually quite true to what is inside as well so win-win! These retail for about $8 I believe and that is a really good price for what you're getting. I would suggest you pick one..two..or more up!

See below for the swatches:
Bottom R - bare lip / L - 700

 R - 200 / L - 600

 R - 110 / L - 120

 R - 750 / L - 800

If you're interested in knowing what is on my eyes, I used the Rimmel 002 London Nudes Calling Palette, which is very similar to the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, as you can see from the images below. 

As you can see - from the picture below, the top is the Rimmel palette, the Bottom one directly below is the Naked 3 Palette. The order may not be the same, but the colors are similar enough! The pigmentation of the Rimmel is really good and I would say that if you do not want to shell out the big bucks, this is a good alternative. 

Until next time, XO - M.
