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.

  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.

CONS

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.

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.
