New purchases - Rimmel

I recently was browsing through ASOS (as I do most days making various extensive wishlists) and I saw they had a sale! I headed straight to their beauty page and saw there were a lot of Rimmel products were on there and as drugstore brand I find the quality amazing value for price, so I thought I'd make a few new purchases! I decided on:

  • Rimmel Lasting finish 25 hour foundation - £5.50
  • Rimmel Exaggerate eye liner - £3.50
  • Rimmel Apocolips Matte lip velvet in shades Atomic Rose & Metoric Matte- £4.50 each
  • Rimmel Lipstick Lock - £4.99 (purchase from Superdrug)

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation

This foundation appealed to me as it said to be 'the first transfer-resistant foundation that lasts up to 25 hours by Rimmel', it is important to me that my foundation is long wearing as I work long hours and can have oily skin so I like something that will not slip and slide around my face. This applies really well and blends on my face nicely, I really liked the finish too, matte and not tacky. The coverage is good too whilst still looking natural. This will definitely be my new day to day foundation, as the price is really good too!

Rimmel Exaggerate eye liner
 It still takes me a while to create the 'perfect cat flick' but I am determined to improve on it. I like the applicator on this eyeliner as it is smooth and doesn't drag. It is also waterproof therefore long lasting. It is highly pigmented, a real dark black colour. The tip is hard and doesn't wobble meaning you can create a defined flick with the point applicator.

Rimmel Apocolips in 'Atomic Rose'
Really like the formula of this lip product, it is soft and almost mousse like, although matte it doesn't dry hard or feel flaky, it stays velvetty-soft. This shade atomic rose is a lovely colour and very wearable for all skin tones, and is a pale nude(ish) pink - your lips but better kind of shade. Very nice!

Rimmel Apocolips in 'Metoric Matte'
 LOVE this shade in Metoric Matte, the perfect Autumnal shade, a dark berry/purple colour and so lovely for this time of year! Again it has staying power and a lovely formula. The applicator is ok, could be firmer and you do get a lot on the wand so I did find I had to wipe some off before applying, but super affordable so worth a buy!

 (On top is Atomic Rose and underneath is Metoric Matte)

Rimmel Lipstick lock
I heard about this product through a friend who recommended it to me, it is a colourless and transparent liquid that you apply over lipstick to set your lip colour and I have found it works really well. I apply a thin layer over dried lipstick, leave my lips apart and wait 30 seconds for the solution to dry. One thing I will point out is the smell - it is quite strong and almost smells like nail varnish which isn't pleasant but wait a few seconds and it dissapears, also there is a slight sting as you apply but nothing too uncomfortable. I would wear this on a night out if I want to ensure my lipstick colour stays - and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants lasting lipstick!



Love,
Emily ♥

  13. I'm glad that Apocalips (Matte) is good because I had a really bad experience with the non matte one as it just didn't apply well at all and then came off really easily.
