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.

MAGNIF’EYES Eye Contouring Palette Keep Calm & Wear Gold

Now this is one eye contouring palette I really like. I have played around with the various shades for weeks now and I love the many looks I have created.

Here is the product description:

Make-up Is The Best Accessory

Your face is your greatest asset. It is the first piece of you people notice. Most of the time, we forget our face and focus on spending on clothes and shoes, forgetting make-up is our best accessory. It is necessary to invest in our hair and skin. After all, looking good is good for business.

Like Karl Lagerfeld said

To reinvent a newly impeccable you in the most modern of outfits, don’t skip on make-up, and be sure to have a flawless skin and hair. That will have more impact than expensive clothes

Here are some beauty/make-up products to consider:

Lipstick

Never leave your home without a bit of lipstick. Matte lipsticks are great for the winter months. MAC’s Ruby Woo is an example of a bold matte look you can go for:

Bobbi Brown Blackberry lipstick is also a semi-matte, creamy lipstick that may look lovely on you:

Lip-Color

Powder/Foundation

With the right powder/foundation, you can face anything. Iman second to none gives you the coverage you need along with the perfect powder finish. You get two for the price of one:

Eye Shadow

You wear your face everyday, spice your look up with your eye shadow. I love the fashion fair multilevel eye shadow compact palette. The shades are fabulous and long-lasting:

Mascara

Mascaras can do things with your eyes, you never thought were possible. Finding the right one, takes a lot of trial and error. They’re Real Mascara by Benefit seems to be the one for many. It is currently the UK’s bestselling mascara:

Hypnose Star mascara by Lancome is also a good buy. It is great for creating the impact of false eyelashes:

Eyeliner

Eyeliners define your eyes like no other, that is when they are applied correctly. Rimmel Exaggerate eye liner does the job:

Lipgloss

The right lipgloss is just the right highlight you need for your lips. NARS Cosmetics Turkish Delight lipgloss is a perfect choice:

The Chanel Wild Rose lipgloss is a fantastic shade too:

These are just samples you could look out for when next you are in a beauty store. Remember the famous Helena Rubinstein’s words

There are no ugly women, only lazy ones.
