Favourite Rimmel Products

Favourite Rimmel Products

Continuing my series where I talk to you about my favourite products from a certain brand, this weeks post is about my Rimmel favourites!

Rimmel Lip Swatches

Theres a lot of lip products I think are great from Rimmel so lets tackle them first. Although the versions I have are in the old packaging I'm sure the Lasting Finish and Colour Show Off lipsticks still have the same formula. The Colour Show Off lipsticks I have here are Pink Gossip and Red Fever which are a lovely pink and classic vintage red. I also have another red lipstick from Rimmel in the form of the Lasting Finish lipstick in the shade alarm which is a hint more orange than Red Fever. I really like both of these lipsticks, the Colour Show Off formula leans more matte than the Lasting Finish but both provide a luscious, pigmented coat of colour on the lips. Unfortunately I couldn't find a link for the Colour Show Off lipsticks so they must be discontinued and possibly replaced by The One lipsticks :(

Next let's talk lip liners! I only have two from Rimmel but they are both different formulas and I love them both! The retractable Exaggerate lip liner in the shade East End Snob that everyone raves about. I do like this shade but I think it's a bit too light for me however the shape and texture of the pencil is great so I would love to get some more shades. The darker pencil is the Lasting Finish lip liner in Space, a shade I often lean towards in lip products as it is similar to the 'Kylie' brown-ish nude. Both of these lip liners apply nicely and have good pigmentation; the Lasting Finish is a bit drier than the Exaggerate so lasts longer on the lips.

The last lip product is a liquid lipstick: the Provocalips lip colour in Make Your Move. A strange name but I love this! You have to apply the colour then wait for it to dry down to a matte texture, you can then apply the clear moussey gloss if you want some more moisture but the product still stays relatively matte. I really like the colour of this shade and am on the hunt for more tradtional lipsticks in this colour.

Favourite Rimmel Products

I've featured two foundations from Rimmel here, the Match Perfection and Lasting Finish Nude, which are two very different foundations. I've talked about the Match Perfection many times as it provides light to medium coverage while still looking fresh and feeling light on the skin. Somehow the Lasting Finish Nude also feels light on the skin while providing medium to heavy coverage (more than the Match Perfection but less than the original Lasting Finish). I find this foundation perfect for long days when I want to look my best or going out for a drink in the evening as it really does last a long time and provide great coverage whilst still looking natural. Although if I was going out dancing and sweating all night I am more likely to wear the original Lasting Finish, I prefer the Nude version more.

Lastly, my favourite concealer EVER (I think!). I have talked about this so many times, so I won't go no too much, but the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer is amazing. Providing good coverage whilst also feeling light and looking natural on the skin, but not too glowy. For me you just can't beat it!
