It’s day three of my Simply Lippy challenge and I’ve gone for an earthy nude shade from Rimmel. I’m still feeling a bit ‘meh’ with this damn cold so I wanted something subtle for today’s makeup look.
Back in October, Rimmel sent me some of their new Only 1 Matte lipsticks which claim to be creamy and non-drying, with a matte finish and good staying power. So naturally with claims like these, I was very excited to give them a try.
I like the Kate Moss range from Rimmel so I thought these might be good, but they are not just good, they are amazing! After trying them out for a few days, I couldn’t get over how good the colour pay off was or how well they lasted on my lips.
Even though I was really impressed, I wanted to put them to the test a bit more as I always try things thoroughly before recommending them here so I can give you an honest review. Anyway, to get a second opinion, I gave one to my bessie to try out and she is loving them as much as I am. In fact, I think she may even love them a little more! So all in all, I think Rimmel are on to a winner here.
The shade I’m wearing today, Shade 700, Trendsetter, is one of my favourites in the collection and I’ve been wearing it a lot over the past few weeks. I would describe is as a beige-nude, but with an earthy undertone. So in other words, even though it’s a nude, it still gives good colour and definition to your lips. And as you can see from the photos, it’s pretty warn down already so I’m pretty sure I’ll be repurchasing this!
If you missed my Day 2 challenge post you can catch up here, and don’t forget you can follow my journey on my social media pages or by searching for the #simplylippy and #365days365shades hashtags on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
I hope those of you who are back to work today are surviving the post-Christmas blues and I’ll see you all tomorrow for Day 4.
