The Review Crew® Report: Rimmel London The Only 1

What our reviewers had to say about the lipstick range

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / May 25 2017

The Review Crew® panel

Beauty Crew sent Rimmel London The Only 1, a nourishing and pigmented lipstick that comes in fifteen shades ranging from nudes and neutrals to vibrant and bright shades, to women aged 18-35.

What they loved

How creamy the formula was: The testers loved how rich and nourishing the formula felt on once applied, and how it didn’t dry out their lips.

How pigmented the lipsticks were: Many reviewers loved how bright the red shade they tested (One Of A Kind) was, with most saying that it also suited different skin tones. A few others also stated how the nude shade (Naughty Nude) suited warm or cool skin tones.

The finish of the lipsticks: The Review Crew® loved the finish of the lipsticks, as they weren’t matte or shiny, but dried to a satin finish.

This may not be for you if…

You’re looking for a long-wearing formula: While reviewers liked how pigmented the lipsticks were, some found the strong colour didn’t last the entire day, and mentioned they would have preferred a bit more longevity in the finish. A few testers did not mind the need to reply after eating or drinking.

The verdict:

The biggest surprise I found was how long-lasting it was. It applies on perfectly smooth and that's it. No marks on my teeth and it lasts all night, no reapplication needed.
Review Crew® MEMBER
The lipstick is creamy and the colour pay-off is excellent. Doesn't last all day, but does last longer than a lot of other ‘affordable’ lip products.
Review Crew® MEMBER
It's not easy to find good moisturising lipsticks that are also long-wearing, but this line definitely stands out and can compete with more expensive brands.
