Product Review – Rimmel London Ultimate Summer Glow Collection

Another week, another product review post. Rimmel London is one of my favourite drug store makeup brands. I love the fact that their products are quality and very affordable. I remember spending a good portion of my pocket-money on Rimmel London while I was at the university, and it is still also one of favourite makeup brands today.

Rimmel London Radiance Brick Multi-national Shimmer Powder

I find bronzing powders very useful, especially in the summer months. I find that they create a stunning bronze look, which I really like. I got the 002 medium shade. Here are my thoughts.

An ultra-fine, multi-tonal bronzing powder for soft shimmer effects and a glamorous, healthy looking glow.

  1. I like the fact that this shimmer powder comes in various tones.
  2. I like the sun-kissed look the powder creates.
  3. It is a multi-tasking product, it can be used for contour & highlight.
  4. It is affordable at £5.99.

None. I love this product a lot.

Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Palette

This clever combination of 3 powder shades – a highlighter, shading brush and blush is smart and handy to have around. I got the 002 coral glow shade (comes in 2 shades) and I am loving it so far.

The palette works with every face shape and skin tone, adding definition and structure. It seamlessly blend with your natural skin tone to create a contoured look.


  1. I like the fact that it is a multi-tasking palette. Why carry 3 kits when you can just take 1!
  2. I found the shades easy to blend.
  3. The shades look great on my skintone.
  4. I love the sleek packaging.
  5. It is so affordable at £6.99

This new Duo Contour Stick was also included in the pack I received from Rimmel. I reviewed this Contour Stick some weeks ago, so you can catch up on that. I think it is a fantastic contour kit. It is so easy to use and has made my makeup application a lot faster.

Rimmel London Sunshimmer Instant Tan

Now the jury is still out as to whether women of colour use a tan. I have personally never thought of using a tan until I received this Sunshimmer Instant Tan by Rimmel London. I have used it a few times now and I like the highlighted skin tone it gives me.

Ultra-blendable formula that instantly illuminates, leaving skin with an all-over matte sun-kissed glow.


  1. I love the pretty packaging.
  2. I like the price at £6.99.
  3. It is water-resistant.
  4. It washes off quickly with soap and water.
  5. It leaves my skin glowing.

Product Review: Lanvin Eclat d’Arpege Eau de Parfum

Here is the fragrance description –

The fresh fruity and floral ingredients including lilac green, sicilian lemon leaves, peach blossom, red peony, white cedar of Lebanon, sweet musk and precious amber are blended to create a light, sparkling scent.

The house of Lanvin has brought back their famous art deco bottle to reflect modernity and beauty shown by the gorgeous transparent bottle and delicate lilac fragrance.


Here are my thoughts –


  1. I love the packaging. It is very unique and looks so sleek. And the bottle itself is very pretty.
  2.  I love the fruity-floral fragrance. It is not too sweet, not too overpowering or intense. It is just perfect.
  3. It is long-lasting. The fragrance stays on for most part of the day.
  4. It is quite affordable at £29.99 for a 50ml bottle. And you can grab a bottle in most perfume stores, as well as online.
  5. I believe it is a great fragrance for women of all ages.

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.
