Eyeliner - essence - Easy 2 Use eyeliner pen

This is an alright product. It isn't as dark as the other essence liquid liners and the pen dries up quite fast. It does however have good lasting power, is great for getting a smooth winged line and is quite affordable. Overall it is decent, but I would recommend other liquid liners in the essence range over this, such as the "super precise liner".

Eyeliner - essence - Super Precise Liner

This is an amazing product. It checks all the boxes, i.e. it's really dark, has great lasting power, does not smudge and is really affordable. The best part about it is the firm, fine-tipped brush at the end of the wand which is great for winged eyeliner. The only criticism I have, is that due to it being waterproof it can be a bit drying on your eye area. I would most definitely purchase …Read more

So I gave this product a really high rating but would probably not purchase it again. It checks most of the boxes, i.e. it's really dark, has great lasting power, does not smudge and is really affordable. However, I am a perfectionist when it comes to winged eyeliner and the slippery tip at the end of the wand makes it hard to control and get that perfectly smooth line. I think it would be …Read more

Great product. It's easy to apply, good pigmentation, natural finish and affordable. With regards to pigmentation, depending on how light or dark a shade you buy, this will result in you using more or less product (I've tried 2 shades). I gave this 4 lippies instead of 5 because the lasting power could be improved.

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick

I love this product. It's long lasting (can last 6-8 hours before you need to touch up), intense colour, does not transfer, dries to a matte finish, easy to apply and really affordable. I got this in the shade mocha which is a brown nude, and to be honest I think it's a little too close to my skin tone so it makes me look a bit washed out. However, there is a great selection of shades …Read more

I have a love hate relationship with this product. I have oily skin with some acne scarring and wanted something to help cover it up. So I initially used this product as a foundation (which I've seen makeup artists do) rather than just a concealer which is what it was intended for. I used a very dense, flat top foundation brush which I swirled into the tub and blended into my skin. Obviously …Read more

Powder - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder - Peach Glow

Oct/31/2017

I have really oily skin and the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is my HG; it keeps my makeup on point from start to finish and doesn't require a setting powder. I do however use the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder (in the shade "sandstorm") around my eye area after applying my foundation and concealer. I use Kryolan's Dermacolor concealer around my eyes, which can tend to …Read more

This product makes a great nude for light to medium skin tones. Its a pretty pink for that barely-there kind of look. I think on darker skin tones it can tend to look a bit washed out. The creamy texture also ensures it isn't as drying as it's matte counterparts.

PRO's:
- long lasting
- intense colour
- does not bleed
- creamy …

This is an excellent product. It has that classic, old-Hollywood red lip look. I think it goes beautifully with warm undertones.
