Rimmel were the first brand I dabbled with when I started using makeup, the Stay Matte foundation being my go-to base & the double ended mascara that seems to have disappeared off the shelves. Since I've developed my passion for beauty products, Rimmel have always stuck around in my makeup bag, they're great value yet still retain quality & theres always something new to try too!
I've now steered away from what I believed to be my 'holy grail' foundation aged 16 & opted for Match Perfection as my most-loved Rimmel base. I've done a full review on it but I will just touch on why I love it. It's a perfect match (lol) for my skintone, I always struggle finding shades light enough for me, but Light Porcelain is just right. The consistency is thin but still provides good coverage without feeling too heavy. Another base product I've pretty much always used is the Stay Matte Powder, priced at only £3.99 I never hesitate when it comes to re-purchasing this!
As I said above, I used to be a big fan of the double ended mascara, one end being white which claimed to thicken up your lashes & the other end being the colour used to define them, either black or brown. I think it was the novelty of being able to coat my lashes in a white 'primer' style product & then cover them over with the actual mascara! At the moment I'm using the Wonder'full Mascara, it contains Argan Oil which conditions your eyelashes - I would never have even considered but eyelashes deserve to be looked after too! The Wonder'full mascara has a really light texture, it doesn't clump up at all & the soft brush bristles grip on to the lashes providing the right amount of product.
One of the most well known lip products in the blogosphere has got to be Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick - 107. I absolutely love a berry lip, especially now the seasons are changing & everywhere is beginning to look Autumnal! Although these lipsticks have a matte finish they aren't drying or uncomfortable to wear as they have been designed to be a 'velvet matte'. It means you can apply them without having to drag them across your lips & you don't need to worry about getting chapped lips from wearing it either! I actually have quite a few Rimmel lipsticks in my makeup collection, theres a good choice of shades & finishes available and they're also inexpensive too. Whenever I feel like treating myself to a new lip product, I always head to the Rimmel stands first! Another favourite of mine is also a Kate Moss lipstick, this time from the Lasting Finish range though & in the Shade 03. This is a bit of a different one for me, as it's a neutral, nude kinda colour which isn't something I opt for a lot. It's good to try something new though & I'm actually really glad to have found a lipstick I can wear everyday.
