Lovin' Rimmel...

I recently popped into Boots to grab a few necessities and have a nosey at the makeup... 

I heard that Rimmel had released some new lip lacquers called 'Apocalips' so obviously I had to try some, and they were on 3 for 2 so it was a no brainer... I had to get 3!! 



So, I got home, put them on... and yes, THEY ARE AMAZING!! They are sort of like a lipgloss and lipstick all rolled into one! Which is perfect for me as I have quite dry lips, so sometimes lipsticks can be too drying for me, whereas these are so creamy AND are as pigmented as a lipstick! The only thing I would say is that they don't last as long on the lips as a lipstick, but who cares I like to top up a lot anyway especially when i'm on a night out drinking etc. For £5.99 you can't really beat them!



 I bought a bright red called Big Bang...














A bright fuchsia pink called Apocalyptic...
And a cool lavender pink called Nova...















Love all of them, the red and bright pink are great for a night out or for anyone who can get away with bold lips during the day, whereas the lavender pink is great for a subtle pop of colour during the day! I think there are about 8 colours in the collection altogether and to be honest they all look nice, so I may be back for more!! 

Anyway, when I was in Boots eyeing up these beauties I realised just how amazing Rimmel products have been lately! I mean they have always been a good brand but the products didn't really compare to the high end brands, such as M.A.C etc! But in the past year or so they have brought out some really great products, which I think are just as good as some of the high end equivalents...





Some other Rimmel products which I LOVE...


Kate Moss Lipsticks... These have a fantastic colour range, to the left are 5 of the colours that I could find to show you, I think I have a few more but they are probably in my professional kit! 











The original formula of these lipsticks is quite similar to the M.A.C Amplified lipsticks, creamy yet very pigmented... Again, great for my dry lips. The one in the red packaging is one of the newer matte lipsticks, which are basically the same but without a 'sheen'.






The Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliners are also a pretty new addition to Rimmel, and again they did not disappoint! They have such a soft smooth pigmented formula which glides on without dragging the skin, and it literally stays on all day... BONUS!! These are definitely as good, if not better, than any high end eyeliners that I have tried! There are about 6 colours to choose from as well! 






Rimmel Match Perfection and Wake Me Up foundations... Again, amazing for the price! I use the Match Perfection quite a lot at the moment for during the day, and I would say it has a medium coverage... I do also like the Wake Me Up, but it does have a bit of shimmer in it which I am not too keen on in a foundation, as you can look a bit like a vampire from Twilight when you walk into the sunlight LOL! But some people like a bit of sparkle to brighten up their face, it is still a brill foundation so each to their own as they say... 
The Stay Matte Powder...What can I say? It does what it says on the tin, dust it over your foundation and it stops you looking shiny...
Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch, a lovely highlighter, looks great on the tops of the cheekbones! Although it is very shimmery so don't go crazy! 
Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Liner... Love it, easy to apply, lasts all day and perfect for doing a nice winged eyeliner flick.

Lastly, Stay Glossy Lipgloss, are you surprised to learn that I love this too?! Goes on smoothly, and isn't sticky! The colour I have is 'Non Stop Glamour' which a pinky peach with a hint of pearly sparkle... So beautiful!   
I bet there are so many more little gems that I haven't discovered yet... The Metal Rush nail varnishes have definitely caught my eye for my next trip to Boots... I really shouldn't be let out of the house!!

I seriously cannot express how much I love Rimmel at the moment! I really hope they keep on releasing amazing products in the near future!


P.S. Maybelline have also stepped up their game too recently... this could be dangerous!! I will leave you with the products I picked up from there recently. Again, all amazing for the price...

Colour Tattoo 24 Hour cream eyeshadow in Taupe, Rocket Volum Express mascara, The Falsies Volum Express mascara, Waterproof Gel/Cream Eyeliner in Black.

  1. hey Amy, what make-up style would you recommend for the fuchsia pink lippy? I would love to try out that colour but wouldn't know what to do with the rest of my face to set it off/compliment it.xx

  2. I generally just do a winged liquid liner on my eyes, a really subtle blush, and have the lippy as the focus of the makeup! But to be honest I have worn this sort of colour with a really smokey eye as well :) like in this photo on facebook --> http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150619715200252&set=t.736955623&type=3&theater
