Product Review: Rimmel London Makeup

These Rimmel London Makeup beauties landed on my doorstep just before I went away for Christmas, and I had the pleasure of taking them away with me on holiday. I have fallen completely in love with all 5 of them.

Volume Colourist Mascara

This Volume Colourist Mascara by Rimmel reveals darker lashes with and without mascara! It darkens bare lashes in two weeks.

Here is the product description:

Rimmel London Volume Colourist Mascara is Rimmel’s first-ever mascara that, gradually over time, makes bare lashes darker and in an instant, the volumising formula loads lashes with jet-black impact.

Its semi-permanent lash-tint complex progressively blackens bare lashes every time you wear it so that, from 2 weeks onwards of regular usage, your naked lashes look darker from root to tip! Rimmel’s innovative multi-tasking formula is a unique combination of creamy, ultra-black lash volumising formula and Lash-Tint Complex with natural colorant which gives 24/7 impact.

Product Review: A Massage Oil and a Cleansing Body Wash

I like a good massage. There is nothing better than having a full body massage. Trust me, it is the best feeling in the world, as long as you have it done with the right products and hands.

I try to take time off regularly to go for a good massage. With the nature of my work and my busy life, I see this regular treatments as a necessity not luxury. A good massage kind of puts my body back together.

This review post is all about an Aromotherapy Associates Restful and Tranquil Massage Oil and a Sanctuary Spa Cleansing Burst Body Wash.

Product Review – Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder

I tried a Laura Mercier product – a Sexy Lips Sheer Lipstick some months ago, and I liked it a lot. Since then, I have been on the lookout for other Laura Mercier products. I needed a setting powder, so I decided to try the Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder and I am glad I did. I was super impressed.

I love trying new beauty products. It is always a good feeling when I come across a beauty product I like. It does not happen every time but when it does, I make sure I hold on to that product. And I usually write a review post too so all my readers know all about it. I have a couple of beauty products I will be reviewing in the next few months and I can’t wait to tell you all about them. I recently came across some Korean BB creams, so reviews will be coming on those at some point. But back to this review, here is a brief description of this setting powder –

This convenient pressed powder version of our best-selling Translucent Loose Setting Powder. It feels luxuriously dense in the compact, feels silky-light and refined on your skin. It applies evenly and blends effortlessly.

I was very happy with this product description. I bought it online so I had the opportunity to read it as well as the various reviews. So I had a good idea of what to expect. I didn’t have to worry about getting the right shade, so buying online was the best option for me.

  3. It blends easily and evenly.
  4. It provides long-lasting light coverage.
  5. I love the satin finish.
  6. It is suitable for all skin types and shades.

  8. It is a great touch-up powder, and I love the fact that it adds no additional colour.
