I love reading about what people’s favourite products are from a brand and so I thought why not start a new series on this blog of mine. ‘Five Favourites from’ will list what products I love from a brand and hopefully will have something in there that correlates to a different area of makeup rather than just being five eye palettes or five foundations for example. A brand I’ve been loving lately is Rimmel. I remember being 13 and dabbling in makeup for the first time and just hating the Rimmel stands! 18 year old me however, seems to be drawn into their stand whenever I visit my local Boots or Superdrug.
Something which I think Rimmel are stepping up their game in the foundation area, and my favourite of the moment from them is their Lasting Finish. I’ve already done a whole blog post dedicated to this foundation as it is the one I grab daily. It doesn’t cling to dry patches, feels weightless on the skin and is actually pale enough for me! Oh and it still looks pretty good after a full day at college!
I remember when the Wake Me Up concealer was a staple in everyone’s makeup bag, and now I hardly seem to hear about it. I personally use this under my eyes and on any areas of my face that I feel need ‘lightening’. It doesn’t crease under my eyes and makes me look instantly more awake! I can see how people would use this for blemishes as it is quite full coverage, but I think it just makes them more noticeable. All in all, it’s my favourite concealer for under the eyes.
If you’re a long time reader you’ll know I have oily skin. The Match Perfection loose powder, really keeps oil at bay and I find I don’t need to powder at all if I’m touching my face throughout the day. It really is amazing for keeping my face looking matte! I think I might be a loose powder convert!
I think I may have found a blush that makes me look alive but not like a doll. Their single pan blushers are so pigmented and super cheap. I’ve already done a whole post dedicated to this so I won’t ramble too much. It’s in Santa Rose and is just simply stunning when applied.
How could I talk about Rimmel without at least mentioning their lipsticks. I have the Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick in 101. It may be matte, but I don’t find it drying in the slightest. It definitely needs maintenance throughout the day, but it’s a rare lipstick if it doesn’t. I think these are iconic and I can see why so many people swear by them.
