I purchased this product after a recommendation from a friend and I hated it!!! It has more to do with the wand really so when I ran out of my other mascara I just swapped the wands which fit into this one. I expected this mascara to define all my lashes but all it did was clump them all together and made me look like I barely had any lashes!!! Honestly not the best product for me. I like mascaras to actually define each and every one of my lashes... So no, I will not be purchasing this in the future.
Oh man I've had my eyeliner for three years now. I don't use it as much as I did back then but I'm half way through. The colour definitely delivers which is great but if worn for a long time it does tend to smudge. I like to put the eyeliner on the inside part of my lower eyelashes but thoughout the night it definitely runs and it makes me look terrible. So I've converted to liquid eyeliner and eyeshadows on my lower lashes. Not a big fan of the price but it does last a LONG LONG time so I may purchase again in the future.
Bronzers -Rimmel - Natural Bronzer - 027 Sun dance

I've tried other bronzers and nothing compares to 027 Sun dance. I love this bronzer and I don't think that it's too shimmery. I think it's perfect. I'm currently using the 022 Sun Bronze that my friend gave me which is matte and I really miss my 027. I'm trying not to waste anymore makeup though because I have too many that never get used. I've already hit pan on 2 of the 027 and I can't wait to hit pan on my 022 so I can go back to my fave bronzer.
I purchased the Start Now Essentials Collection. I had the Tan foundation which came with the brush, Mineral Glow and Marble Powder in Pink. I think that this blush works really well for me and my skin tone. I do have acne scars on my cheeks from a really bad product reaction previously and it's hard to hide under other blushes but this works really well because it's pigmented enough that it colors and reflects on my cheek which makes my scars basically disappear with the help of the Pink blush. I've been using the trial pack for at least a year now. So I've almost hit pan and will purchase the regular sized in the future because a little goes a long way.
I just wanted to start off by saying that I have a really acne-prone skin, It was very hard for me to find a foundation with good coverage that will not cause my skin to break out. Also, I've had a very hard time finding a foundation that matches my skin tone. I tan easily in the summer and in the winter I have a yellow undertone and it's noticable when my tan starts to fade. And it's really frustrating because I would need to purchase a whole different color of foundation because of how my tan fades so much. I usually purchased liquid foundation because of my dry skin as well which didn't help my oily T-zone. I thought I would never find a foundation for me because of how complicated my skin was. That is, until I discovered this product. I was hesitant to purchase at first and the cosmetics lady said that I matched the Golden Medium but it was a bit lighter when she put it on so I was being picky and asked for her to try Tan. I saw my face and it was literally life changing. It matched my summer skin tone PERFECTLY and even now that it's winter it still somehow matches even though my tan has faded... It looks so natural and I only need one application rather than my old routine of primer, liquid foundation, powder makeup to set. The fact that it has SPF 15 is a huge BONUS because it's very important in keeping your skin healthy. I think the only problem I have is that sometimes I would have to reapply during the day because I get oily and it helps mattify my skin. But then again, who doesn't need to freshen up a little during the day? I like the chisel brush that came with the trial package instead of the sponge that comes with the regular sized foundation for my dry skin. This product goes a long way. I've used the trial package and almost done my second regular sized foundation now and I think it's been almost a year and a half now since I started using this. (I use it every day) So if you want this to last, using the brush that comes in the trial package definitely helps.
This is one of my all time favorite mascara. It makes my lashes look longer and fuller without it looking caked on. Very natural looking as well. I like to do my top lashes first and then the bottom without adding any more products on the brush. I like how it makes it look like I put eyeshadow under my eyes even though I don't because it makes my eyes look bigger. This is a little pricier than drugstore products but definitely worth it for me. I had 2 sample sizes and a regular sized one that I lost during me moving around which was quite unfortunate and haven't quite gotten around to purchasing more.
