#25 Sunday Sounds - Brand Focus: Rimmel

Rimmel always used to be one of those brands that for some reason or another would always be missed off my radar, but recently I have really been getting into their products and I am really impressed with the quality.

Probably the first item I ever purchased from the Rimmel range was the Wake Me Up concealer and I fell in love with it that much that I had to get the Wake Me Up foundation. Both products give that perfect Spring fresh faced finish. It attributes it's awakening finish to the Vitamin C which they both contain. This duo is always the one I head for most Mondays when my skin/face needs that extra bit of help to look fresh and ready for the week ahead.

Next is two products from the Scandal Eyes range; a cream shadow stick in shade 011 Bluffing, a metallic brown shade and the Waterproof Kohl eye liner in shade 055 Nude. I love both of these products, the cream shadow stick is great for all over the lid and buffed into the socket and the eye liner is perfect for the water line and inner corner to gives the eyes a more wide awake finish. 

Another eye favourite of mine is the Glam Eyes HD Eye Shadow Palette, this little beauty contains 5 different shades that all work perfectly together; a champagne shade, khaki, a lovely rich rusty pink shade, a deep berry toned chocolate and a dark gunmetal grey. The shadows are really well pigmented and are just so pretty when all blended in together.

Lastly are some lip favourites of mine. First up is the Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liners in shades 024 Red Diva which is a real true red and 063 Eastend Snob which is a lovely nudey pink. I never used to wear lip liners until I found these little beauties. They are so easy to apply and really do help to stop your lipstick from bleeding and creating the illusion of a fuller lip. I also have a berry toned shade within this range so I am pretty fixed for lip liners as I only ever wear nude lipsticks with the odd exception of a red or berry in the Winter months. Lastly is a newish release, it's the Oh My Gloss lip gloss in shade 130 Purrr... Glossy Cat. This is my perfect type of lip gloss for me, it's nude in colour with a slight shimmer to it. Perfect for the evening when you're bronzing it up and don't want anything too heavy on the lips but still want a bit of shimmer. 

So that's it, my favourites from Rimmel. Do you own any of these items? What do you think of them? Is there anything you could recommend?

  1. I really need to go get some of those lip liners! I've been hearing so much about them! I really like this post, it's great to see these brand reviews grouped as such. The Wake Me Up Concealer was one of the first Rimmel products I had, as well! I think I'll have to pick up the eyeshadow stick, it looks lovely.

  2. Rimmel are a brand I really need to try more products by! I've heard great things about their lip liners, but every time I go to buy them I can't find the shades I want in stock.
