Product Review: Rimmel London New Insta Collection

I am a huge Rimmel London fan, right from my days at the University. I find Rimmel London makeup affordable and perfect for what I need them for. My friend and I were Rimmel London junkies in uni, that was one of the major makeup brands we used back then, and we still love it.

I had the golden opportunity to try out the new Rimmel London Insta Collection, I was blown away by how amazing the products.

These makeup products have filled a massive hole in my makeup bag. I have never had a duo contour stick or a concealer palette for EVERYTHING, and now I do! This Insta Collection is the TRUTH!

Product Review: MAC Amber Eyeshadow Palette

I gave away a MAC Amber Eyeshadow Palette  to a lucky winner some weeks ago, and I have finally gotten around to trying my own palette. I love trying new makeup, and I am a huge MAC fan.

MAC – founded in 1984, in Toronto, Canada, has been one of the leaders in the beauty industry for years now. I think majority of their products are great and suit my skin, so I am always keen to try something new from the brand.

If I had an unlimited budget and a bit more space, I would buy a lot more makeup. I have quite a lot of makeup at the moment. I won’t call myself a makeup freak, but I am slowly getting there. I have over 20 lipsticks, so many eyeshadow palettes, foundations and different types makeup, that my Marks and Spencer makeup bag is struggling to contain them all.

I know my makeup is nothing close to what some beauty bloggers have (I know some bloggers with hundreds of lipsticks), but I still think I have a lot! Like I said, I wish I could have some more, but there is space for them. I would literally have to move house to accommodate any more makeup, lol. So for now, all the makeup I own have to be kept in this bag. I am in no mood to call the movers! Our current house may not be our forever home, but I hate moving, so I don’t see us moving house anytime soon. I can see us staying put for a bit.

Back to the MAC Amber Eyeshadow Palette review. Here is the product description:

This well-edited palette features a colour wave of amber hues that offer countless shade combinations. It provides an array of textures from matte to satin to frost for creating a variety of looks for both day and night. The saturated, soft and smooth hues are all packaged in one compact for easy portability.

Here are my thoughts on this palette –

PROS

  1. I love all nine shades. The natural shades suit my skin tone.
  2. The shades are very easy to apply and take off.
  3. The shades are long-lasting, stayed in place all day.
  4. It is a multi-tasking palette. It can take you from day-to-night effortlessly.
  5. It is easily accessible online and in various beauty stores.
  6. Some shades are shimmer, some shades are matte, so there is a shade for everyone.

CONS

  1. The palette is smaller than I expected. I expected the original MAC palette size, but this is smaller.
  2. It is quite pricey at £25 for what you get.

 

Overall, I do recommend this MAC Amber Eyeshadow palette. I think the shades are beautiful and great for a natural look.

What are your thoughts on this palette? Have you used it before?
