Hi guys! Today I'm writing about the new makeup Rimmel have been releasing lately. Frankly, I can barely keep up with all these new releases! There are some great products here if you need to update your kit or want to expand your collection. I passed on the brand-spanking new Volume Colourist Mascara and Colour Precise Liners, but I'm sure you'll read about those on other beauty blogs! Anyway, let's have a look at some makeup, shall we?
Magnif'Eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner*
I received the shades Back to Blacks* and Queens of the Bronzed Age*. Back to Blacks (top two swatches in the above photo) comprises a matte black eyeliner on one end and a high pearl gun metal grey shadow with glitter components on the other. I feel like the shadow shade is too dark for smudging over my lids, however I have got a lot of use out of the black liner end. If you're in a hurry, it's a super-easy to glide on the liner to either the top or bottom lashlines and I found the staying power to be quite long. My lower eyeliner has been 'shifting' a bit lately, but I had better results lightly using the black from my Magnif'Eyes Back to Blacks. Queens of the Bronzed Age (bottom two swatches in the above photo) comprises a high pearl gold glitter eyeliner and a medium pearl bronze shadow. I'm getting a ton of use out of the shadow end, as I do love a shimmery bronze eye! I blend this out with my fingertips, and find it's easy to create a statement eye look; I've heard it can be difficult blending this product with a brush, luckily I use my fingers a lot with my eye makeup! The other shades are Kissed by a Rose Gold (brown liner/rose gold shadow) and Dark Side of Blue (cobalt blue liner/dark grey shadow). I must say I'm intrigued with the Dark Side of Blue and will be checking out the fun-looking cobalt blue baby in-store!
In April, Rimmel released #InstaFlawless, their new perfecting, radiant skin tint and the Kate Moss Sculpting Palette which is a highlight, contour and blush all in one. They also released a Lip Conditioning Balm by Kate SPF15, but I didn't opt-in for it and keep forgetting to check it out instore!
In a sign of the times, Rimmel have hashtagged a product name with #InstaFlawless. This SPF15 product is described as a perfecting, radiant skin tint, that provides a natural looking glow, primes, perfects and gives 24 hour moisturisation. I was sent the shade Light Medium, which at first seemed a little dark for my
Kate Sculpting Palette*
I adore the rose gold packaging; it's really pretty to look at but exceptionally difficult to photograph! I received this palette in the shade Coral Glow*, and it's a lovely, flattering and easy to wear shade for me. There is quite a bit of fall-out and the product is quite powdery, so you have to be a bit careful and remember to tap off the excess before applying. Personally, I prefer the blush and contour powders over the highlight one. I'm not usually a fan of contouring, but I did give it a go with this palette and it was easier than I thought! This Sculpting Palette is a great travel option, as you're getting three products in one, so it's a great way to save on space in your makeup bag. I'll definitely be taking this palette interstate with me next month!
