For today’s Simply Lippy lipstick I went for a new favourite offering from Rimmel. You’ll have already seen me use lipsticks from their Only 1 Matte range throughout the challenge, and today’s shade is another gorgeous option.
As I’ve mentioned before, the matte finish on these lipsticks is super soft and they have really great staying power. The formula is creamy and non-drying, and best of all the pigment is on-point. When applied to the lips, each shade really looks exactly like you expect it to look, except maybe this one: but let me explain…
On first appearance The Matte Factor is a deep berry shade, but the best thing about this shade is, it takes on a different tone when you wear it with different colours. For example, I wore this with a bright berry dress for my girls Christmas lunch in December and it had a purple, berry undertone. However, today as you can see from the photos, I’m wearing a bright coral top and the lipstick has a kind of red, burgundy undertone. You really couldn’t get more versatile than that, could you?!
In terms of budget lipsticks, these have to be my favourite new release of 2016. You’ll all know by now that my overall favourite release of last year was the new YSL vinyl lip cream, but if you don’t want to splurge and are looking for something a little more affordable, then this range really won’t let you down.
Have any of you tried this range yet? If so, I’d love to hear whether or not you’re loving them as much as I am so comment below and let me know your thoughts.
