Bronzers -Rimmel -Natural Bronzer - 21 Sun Light

foto

Found the perfect Bronzer. Perfect in every way. Natural color for my pale skin, thank God it's matte, affordable ($6) and it's WATERPROOF. Also known as sweat-proof. It doesn't go on patchy and blends easily. It's long lasting and has barely any kickback. I've tried a million bronzers, high and low end. This one is going to be the last. The ONLY con, is that the compact doesn't have a hinged lid, and weighs nothing. Be prepared to drop it. I've dropped it three times and it hasn't cracked yet!

Liquid -Rimmel -Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation

foto

Really loving this foundation! Coverage is natural looking and buildable. Works well on combination skin. Lasts pretty well with a primer and setting spray. I do have problems with it breaking up on oily areas and settling into fine lines after several hours. But overall it's great for a low maintenance everyday wear foundation.


Liquid -Rimmel -Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

Pros: This is a very good, medium/high coverage, transfer- and sweat-proof foundation. It has a demi-matte finish, and it stays wonderfully on my skin for hours and hours. In Romania it comes in a glass bottle with a pump.

Cons: As usual, the lightest shade available in my country (Ivory) is a bit too dark for me, and it oxidizes quite a bit, which is why I probably won't repurchase. It also breaks me out a little, but only if I use it a few days in a row.


Liquid -Rimmel -Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

This was my HG foundation for years. It offers very good coverage,stays matte, doesn't break me out, and has a decent stay power. I even wore it on my own wedding with no problems at all. I only changed it because my skin's needs have changed in time and it even went quite crazy for a while, so I went out to try some new products, but I still use it from time to time. Unfortunately it doesn't have SPF (I prefer foundations that do, as my skin doesn't like it when I put anything with SPF directly on it, only on top of a moisturizer)

Lipstick -Rimmel -Moisture Renew Lipstick

on 2/19/2018 4:54:00 AM

Really moisturising, very pigmented lipstick, quite comfortable to wear. Good for us dry-lip-ladies. I have Notting Hill Nude, which is a lovely brown nude that looks even more brown on me (everything does).

Because it is so moisturising and soft, it comes off very easily. You'll be reapplying this if you touch anything with your lips.

So, trade-off.

It has a sunscreen-y scent, which fades but is still detectable, so definitely don't buy if you don't like the smell of sunscreen.

EDIT: This shade, Notting Hill Nude, is the same shade as the Kate Moss Lasting Finish Anniversary in My Nude/55, but is more slide-y.

Eyeliner -Rimmel -Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer Pencil

on 2/19/2018 12:22:00 AM

I used to think this eye pencil was good enough, but it's not performing at all well now. The line is too heavy and it does not glide on lightly. It gives a hard look, which is not the effect I want. And being waterproof, it is not budging when I try to blend it. I cannot recommend this pencil anymore. The smudger tip is useless, because it would be a hotbed of germs immediately. You need to use a clean sponge tip every time, not the same tip over and over.

I purchased this tonight at Walmart. It was about $5. All colors are pretty I bought the lightest of the 3. I mostly purchased it for the blush. It’s a shimmering pink. I like Rimmel makeup. It’s good for the cost.

Lipstick -Rimmel -Lasting Finish by Kate Nude Collection

on 2/18/2018 8:56:00 PM

I have this in 45, 47 and 48. 45 was a bit too light and 47 has a yellowish cast.

48 is new in my stores and once I tried it I realized it was the perfect shade of my lifetime. It's a true rosy brown, sort of like Maybelline Untainted Spice, but better. That used to be my perfect nude. This is slightly darker. I love this as much as my MAC Paramount for a full statement, polished lip. It is not as dark as that but equally beautiful. It's not as long lasting because it's creamier, but that gives it a nice shine.

The consistency of the Kate Moss nude collection is a lot better than her mattes. It's a pleasure to use these because they are not drying or dragging across the lips like the matte ones. But the main thing is the shade 48 - it outshines all her other shades. I will be buying backups when they go on sale again. There is literally nothing wrong with it. Yes, I recently saw that L'Oreal Sunwash was my perfect shade. I love it too. It is just not as perfect as this one overall and if I could only pick one it would be 48!!

Pressed Powders -Rimmel -Stay Matte Pressed Powder

'' Get the London look. " Oh. Shut up Kate Moss. Rimmel adverts annoy me. Something about these rock chicks strutting their stuff looking like the cat that got the cream. That aside. Rimmel is a super cool brand. It delivers high on quality and the products I've tried thus far have all proved very worthy.

This powder has been a staple in my everyday makeup routine. I used to love my beloved MAC blot powder in medium deep. But I used to go through it like no man's business and would hit pan sooner than I would have liked. Searching through the drugstore I stumbled across this gem. Looking at the cheap packaging, I had a should I... Should I not moment. But decided that I Should at least give it the benefit of the doubt. One year on... We're still together. We have our ups and downs. Sometimes the plastic case comes off and I can't find it. sometimes the plastic case cracks, sometimes the powder comes loose and cracks... then falls apart and it's hey ho off to the drugstore again, to buy me a replacement.

That being said. Its a lovely powder. Does keep you shine free for about six hours. I bake with mine. Wait a minute. I bake? With pressed powder? Yes siree Bob, I do. It's less messy. Takes half the time. And you have hardly any excess to brush off. I just dampen my beauty blender first. To pick up more powder than I would with a dry sponge.

I even brush over lipsticks to give them a matte look and to increase longevity.

I also pop over eyelids for a quick eyeshadow primer, when in a hurry.

You get value for money. I think it's £3.99 and my blot powder from MAC was £20. When I find a cheaper product that works as well as a premium product, I like to do a Snoopy dance.

Lip Liners -Rimmel -1000 Kisses Stay on Lip Liner - Spice

on 2/16/2018 5:13:00 PM

Easily one of the greatest liners ever made. The colour, the texture, the longevity. Everything.
It goes with every freaking lipstick I own.
The colour is a pretty shade. A mix of nude, brown, rust, orange, red. Gorgeous.

I wear it on its own too. Start with Lip balm, then a bit of concealer all over. Overline my lips of course...and fill in with this. I already have big lips, but a bit of overlining never hurt anyone. I'm looking at you, Kylie Jenner. Then I dust with a little translucent powder. This locks everything in and it's like I've made my very own liquid lipstick. Won't come off unless I'm eating oily spaghetti, but to me that's a meal worth spoiling your lipstick for.

Since I've discovered this shade, I feel a little washed out in nude shades. As this is a bit warmer and punchier than a browny or pinky nude. Price is very good. I must have about 4 of these lip pencils on the go at the moment. 5 stars.

Eye Shadow -Rimmel -Magnif'eyes Grunge Glamour Eyeshadow Palette

on 2/16/2018 3:52:00 PM

Apparently I've been overcome by the desire to own all the eyeshadow known to humankind, and this palette is part of my collection. Unfortunately, this product is a dud. I bought it about a year ago, and I got a really good deal on it. The palette was on the clearance rack of my grocery store, and I also had a coupon for $1 off, so I got this baby for about $3. (I actually would have preferred one of the more 'nude' type palettes--this one has a lot of grays in it--but this was the only one on sale.) 4 of the colors are matte, 1 is kind of semi-matte (I can't explain this), and the rest are either satiny or sparkly. They're all neutral except for that one strange purple rectangle. The shades look gorgeous in the pan. Looking at the 12 luscious colors, I thought I'd gotten a real deal.
But I'm trying to talk you out of buying this, so I will get to the bad part of the review. This palette is just plain bad quality--BAD! The shadows are sheer and not well-pigmented, and they don't last well. I always use either primer or concealer on my eyelids before applying my shadow, and dust over it with powder after, but even that didn't work with these. The first time I tried this palette, I applied my shadow as usual. When I checked it an hour or so later, I was shocked--nothing was left but a faint tint. That happened the next time I tried it too. When I used the golden taupe shade yesterday, it turned a kind of oxidized metal shade that was not flattering to my complexion. Only today did I finally make these shadows work, by layering the gold shade over the matte brown. It turned out the lovely taupe shade I wanted yesterday, and it actually lasted a while. So I finally succeeded, but eyeshadow shouldn't be this hard to work with.
I should get rid of this, but it seems I like keeping even poor quality eyeshadow palettes around for some reason. But please don't buy this. It's just not worth the money, even if you get it on sale.

Do not like this at all... I know a lot of people have a lot of luck with this but my face does not do well with mineral oil NOR coconut oil and this has BOTH. I find it just sits on my skin and unfortunately just makes me oilier. I understand the purpose of using oil to combat oily skin, but unfortunately for me the ingredients they chose to offset the oil just wont co-operate with my skin.

I did like the smell of it and its readily available for a good price point, so it's a shame I can't use this.


Liquid -Rimmel -Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation

I absolutely love this. HG drugstore foundation. It looks like skin, doesn't break me out, doesnt emphasize my skin texture, and it's long wearing (8+ hours). If it fades, it fades gracefully. Doesn't turn me into an oil slick, even though I do get a bit dewy because I have oily skin and this is not a matte foundation.

In two layers you get solid medium coverage. It has a natural finish. I fall around NC 42 and 402 Bronze it's a tad darker/off tone from my skintone. But it still works. I will try the shade 400 to see if it fits better, otherwise I'll just repurchase this one again.

I think this is gorgeous and I'm SO happy I can get this beautiful a foundation at this price point to camouflage my acne scars in a natural looking manner.

Thank you Rimmel!
