Happy December 1st and the first day of blogmas! We wanted to start with a What’s New With Rimmel London? Rimmel London has instantly become one of my all-time favorite drugstore brands. They have some great quality items at really affordable prices. Depending on which retailer you purchase your items from, you can definitely find a great deal.
Rimmel has come out with a lot of new products. Some have been out for awhile and are new to me and also some that are new to the collection. I had the opportunity to test out quite a few products. Read on to see which ones are my favorites and the ones that didn’t make the cut.
-Let’s start with the color correcting and concealer/contour palettes. I prefer the color correcting palette over the cream contour. Don’t get me wrong, it applied very well, but I just prefer their powder contour palettes.
-The primer is great! I love the creamy texture and the way it applies. I believe it does help my makeup stay on longer and apply more smoothly.
-#InstaFlawless- My absolute favorite light wear foundation. It feels like a tinted moisturizer but provides coverage like a bb cream. Nothing thick, very natural looking and it provides an instant glow.
-Oh, my gloss- is another staple of mine! I must carry it in my purse always. It applies so smoothly, no surprise with an oil based gloss. It also applies a little bit a color. Nothing too dramatic, but perfect for a limited makeup look or as a lip topper.
-Stay Matte liquid lip colors are very pigments, apply great, and are very comfortable on the lips. I didn’t find them to be overly drying. They do take a little bit to set though, so keep that in mind.
-Match perfection loose powder is a great affordable option for the drugstore. It is nowhere comparable to cult faves like the one from Laura Mercier, but it will do the job on a budget. I would suggest using more as a light dusting over the face to set rather than baking.
-Shake it fresh mascara is a very cool concept and mimics a martini shaker. I could probably just sit there and play with it all day, lol. If you are a fan of really mascara’s this one is for you. It did great at lengthening, but I didn’t see much for volume and separation due to the formula being so wet. Overall, it’s okay, not my favorite. It does the job and is affordable.
-Brow this way gel with argan oil works pretty well as a topper. One thing I do not like is the brush, it’s kind of rough and big for an eyebrow area. I think if they tweaked the design of the brush, it would be a great product.
Alright, guys! I hope you enjoyed this review and what’s new with Rimmel London. Also, let me put it out there that although some of the products did not work for me, it doesn’t they might work for you. I’d love to hear about your experience. Have you tried any of these products out? If so, which ones were your favorite?
