New Release Rimmel #InstaSelfie Makeup!*




Rimmel are continuing to set the bar pretty high in the beauty world, this time with a picture perfect #InstaSelfie collection of makeup, specifically designed so you can get that perfect Instagram selfie. And while I'm not a huge fan of selfies, I enjoy looking at other people's (not in a creepy way!), and appreciate the culture and Rimmel's smart decision to cater to a growing phenomenon. Check out the camera-ready collection below, no flashback with these babies!




Insta Conceal & Correct Palette*
For those of us not blessed with perfectly even skin tone, Rimmel have released the #Insta Conceal & Correct palette. This little beauty contains three shades that address three areas of concern:

~ the peach shades is for dark circles. It neutralises dark under eye circles and illuminates face features.
~ the green shade is designed to cover blemishes and colour-correct redness.
~ the purple shade mutes yellowish undertones to correct dull and sallow skin.

The product is really creamy and easy to blend, and each shade contains chamomile, aloe and vitamin E. When I have the time I'll use a little of the green shade to correct redness around my nose, but I'm mainly enjoying the peach shade for my horrible dark under eye circles! I'm super-busy lately and not getting much sleep, which increases the severity of my dark shadows, so this palette is definitely coming in handy!

Insta Conceal & Contour Palette*
This palette has the exact same design as the Conceal & Correct palette, but instead it contains three shades for highlighting, concealing and contouring. Both of the palettes have a handy mirror in the lid, great if you want to touch up on the go. On first appearance these shades look a little dark, however when you rub your finger across the surface, the product is somehow lighter underneath. This was a welcome surprise for this pale ghost! Again, the formula is creamy and easily blendable, with the concealer proving most popular for me. The contour shade (the darkest) is to be applied beneath the cheekbones, along the jawline, edges of the forehead and nose, and of course, don't forget to blend well!




Insta Flawless Perfecting Radiant Skin Tint*
This is an existing product in the Insta range, and one I've tried before. 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 colouring, but it's actually not too bad colour-wise. However with only two shades available (light/medium or medium/dark) I think this is a bit limiting, and would love to see more shades released, in particular an Ivory. I love that it can be worn alone as a skin perfector, or under foundation if you're after a fuller coverage. I like wearing it for a natural, barely-there look on the weekends, and for those days where I just cannot be stuffed applying a full coverage foundation before the morning school run. The lightweight and hydrating formula helps to brighten the skin tone and gives a natural looking glow.

Insta Fix & Go 2 In 1 Primer & Setting Spray*
Like the Radiant Skin Tint, this Primer & Setting Spray is an existing product that I've tested before. It's a multi-tasker that's oil-free, quick dry and designed to lock in makeup, but you can also use it to prime the skin before applying foundation. It contains cucumber extracts which give it the most amazingly refreshing and delicious scent. It's so fresh I could seriously wear this as a body mist, haha. One thing I've learned with setting sprays is not to spritz too close to the face or you will end up very wet! You want a nice dispersed, even spray, not one concentrated wet cheek circle. LOL.

Insta Fix & Matte Powder*
This is a blotting and fixing powder that sets the foundation and mattifies the skin. It's also designed to control shine (my main problem!) and diminish oils. Even though the shade looks super white, this doesn't translate to the finished look, because it's a micro-fine translucent powder, meaning it has the benefits of a powder without depositing any colour. This product is camera friendly, so you needn't be concerned with flashback while wearing this! I'm loving the embossed hashtag design in the powder; it's not often you get to see a bunch of  ##### symbols in your makeup!

  1. I'm a big fan of this range, especially the colour corrector - i love that it's not super colourful, because I find those ones hard to cover and blend.

  2. Im yet to try anything except for the tint (which I did enjoy). I'm totes skeptical of cream products from the drugstore so I'll need to test it myself sometime. Little disappointed there was no selfie of you in this post! :P

  21. Do you know I have only just discovered primer? It's a life-changer. I heard Rimmel's was good. My skin is constantly changing as my hormones change post-hysterectomy and I do find I need an insta-fix to cover up insta-reddening, dry patches, and blemishes that just appear when I'm about to head out. I'll have to check this out.

  23. The primer and setting spray sounds interesting! I have a similar cucumber based spray but it's getting low so I'll look this one out when it needs replaced! :)

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far :)

  25. Pretty darn keen to try the Insta Fix & Matte Powder - I'm perfectly happy with the one I'm using, but it's a loose powder and therefore doesn't travel well. This pressed one would be ideal! xxx
