Just like many of you, I love make up! But unfortunately, looking amazing can cost a lot of money. I am all for splurging on my favourite make up brands, but sometimes drugstore make up can be just as good, or sometimes even better than the high end brands!
The drugstore brand I am totally loving right now is Rimmel. They are really kicking ass right now, so I thought I would share some of my favourite products with you all.
This is by far my favourite foundation of all time! I hate actually feeling make up on my face so this is just perfect. It is a super light formula but gives such a good coverage, and you can build on it if you like. It contains some vitamin C which is great for brightening up your skin and gives you a lovely, natural glow. It also is SPF 20 so protects your skin from the sun. I use the shade Ivory 100 and it matches perfectly for me. I just love it!
I know I have already mentioned this mascara in a previous post, but its good enough to be mentioned twice! It is such a great mascara and now is my go to. It is perfect for tired eyes and makes such a huge difference, even when I am getting up at 5am to go to work! It is packed with vitamins and cucumber, you can even smell it! I always go for extreme black, but you can also get it in just black if you don’t like dark mascara.
This stuff is a game changer! This is quite a new product from Rimmel and I am 100% sold on it. Setting spray can be so expensive, especially if you use brands like MAC. This is only £6.99 and lasts forever! I have been using it every day for at least two months and still have loads left! It has made a huge difference to how my make up sits. It suggests using it as a primer too, but I just use it for setting my make up. It keeps my make up on my face, even during a 10 hour shift. I just spray it a couple of times across my face and I’m good to go. I also starting spraying it directly on my lips after applying my lipstick and it has made it last so much longer. If you buy any Rimmel product, make sure its this one!
Finally, what’s a beauty post without lipstick? I am sure you will know how much I love my lipstick, so it’s no surprise really that I have some Rimmel lipstick. I actually have a quite a few more by Rimmel, but I have been seriously loving the Kate Moss line. The one in the black casing is an old classic shade, but is still a favourite. It is shade 8 and is a beautiful pinky/coral nude. It is great for days when you are going for the ‘no make up’ make up look. The formula is infused with black diamonds which reflect the light beautifully and it is also really moisturising – the perfect combination! The second shade I am loving is from the 15 year celebration line. It is beautifully packaged in rose gold and looks so good in my lipstick holder. This shade is a special edition to celebrate 15 years of the Rimmel and Kate Moss collaboration. I have gone for the shade Retro Red which is a quite a deep red which I have been loving during the winter months. Again the formula is super moisturising and lasts all day long, which is particularly ideal during the winter when the cold air dries out the skin.
As you can see, I have been loving Rimmel London lately and I am so happy I can share my favourites with you all.
Have you tried any of these products or are there any other Rimmel products you love that are not on the list? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
