Hello gorgeous ladies,
I am thoroughly enjoying the new launch by Rimmel London called the “Only 1 Lipstick.” Although the claims are a bit tall, but these babies perform so well that I was (self) forced to get all the shades I could get my hands on! So today, I will be reviewing the shade “Listen Up.”
A no-compromise all-in-one lipstick. Long-lasting colour, comfort, moisture and wear. A no-compromise all-in-one lipstick that is challenging the lipstick history. The perfect balance of high impact colour, moisture, all day comfort and staying power. Slanted lipstick bullet for an effortless application.
CAD 7.99 (approximately INR 407).
My Experience with Rimmel London Listen Up The Only 1 Lipstick:
Packaging: This lipstick comes packaged in a sleek black tube with a pointed fancy top bearing the Rimmel logo on it. It also has a band of colour which is colour-coded to the lipstick shade. The packaging is sturdy and definitely looks more high-end, but the cap does not shut with a click sound! My major complaint is that it’s actually quite difficult to apply the lipstick neatly with the flat-top bullet shape as I prefer a traditional bullet way more than this one.
Color: “Listen Up” is a gorgeous bright and bold pink shade with slight plum undertones. This shade is perfect for this time of the year and will be totally adored by plum-pink lipstick lovers.
Pigmentation and Texture: The formulation of this lipstick is absolutely stunning. It is incredibly smooth, almost like a moisturising lip balm, but with a lipstick’s pigmentation. It truly glides onto the lips with ease, delivering colour and moisture in one. This creamy lipstick has a satin finish so they never look dry on the lips and the formula feels comfortable and light to wear.
Smell: Like most Rimmel lipsticks, this range also has a fruity scent which can be overpowering for some, but personally I don’t mind that at all.
Longevity: The winning aspect of this lipstick is the longevity! This baby lasted so well on the lips that it was only after 4-5 hours (with snacks and beverages) that I needed to check up on the colour. All I needed was a touch as opposed to a full reapplication. The lipsticks wear away beautifully on the lips and do not feather away or fade unevenly.

Overall, this Rimmel Lipstick has definitely delivered well on the formulation front. I can honestly say that these are some of the best lipstick formulations at the drugstore.
