I fell in love with matte lipsticks. I’ve been looking for a good one for a long time and I almost gave up because my lips have always been very dry when I had a matte lipstick on. I’ve found this one by pure luck and I loved it from day number 1. Today I want to share with you my two favourite shades.

You can read my conclusion about these lipsticks at the end of this post. Read on to find out what else, apart from the shades, I absolutely love about these lipsticks.
Matte lipstick which has stolen my heart
The Only One Matte Lipstick by Rimmel – High Flyer (610) – this is my lipstick number one! The first matte lipstick which doesn’t give me that unpleasant feeling of dry lips. Besides, no matter what I’m wearing, whether it’s for my office work or a meeting with my friends, this shade matches both classy and casual style. It’s delicate but at the same time it accentuates my lips giving them a little bit of colour. And it stays on for a very long time! If you’re not feeling comfortable wearing dark lipstick, this is the one to go for. I love it so much that I just bought the second one in the same shade because I’ve just finished the first one.

Bold and sexy
The Only One Matte Lipstick by Rimmel – Take The Stage (500) – is a classical juicy red lipstick which will give your lips nice matte look and will stay on for a very looooong time! Seriously! These Rimmel lipstics are not only very comfortable to wear but also rather difficult to get rid of your lips (which is a good thing! lol). I still had some in the morning the day after taking those photos! The fact that I’ve used a lip liner (Exaggerate – Red Diva) might have perpetuated the effect though.
“Nothing says confidence and glamour like a classic red lip” – Bobby Brown
I couldn’t agree with these words more. Nowadays I’m only wearing red for a special occasion, but I think I feel confident enough to start wearing it more often. Although… my daughter couldn’t get used to my new look and said that my lips were too red and I should wipe the lipstick off ! hmm… I still need to consider that…
What I love in those lipsticks:
- very creamy and easy to wear
- long lasting
- they don’t dry out your lips
- they don’t feather around your lips
- very light fragrance which you instantly stop noticing
- they have no significant taste
- reasonable price
- I love the selection of shades
