Hi everyone, I’m Alexandra and I blog all things beauty and lifestyle over at Sweet Dreams. I’ve been lucky enough to guest post for Corrie whilst she is having an amazing time on her holiday in Orlando! The guest post I am bringing you today is all about my favourite products from Rimmel. I have always loved Rimmel as a brand, not only are they cheap and affordable, but you know you’re getting the best quality too!
Glam’Eyes Liquid Liner – ‘Black Glamour’.
I actually stumbled upon this liquid eyeliner by accident! My favourite Rimmel eyeliner has always been Rimmel’s Exaggerate Liner as it has the perfect thick tip, so I definitely had to have a steady hand when I discovered Glam Eyes. The Glam Eyes liner has an extremely thin tip which can be difficult for some, but after a few tries I’ve soon got the hang of using it and I now use it everyday. It’s a perfect dark black shade and I try to mix my eyeliner up with smaller lines one day, thicker the next and a little cat flick on a good day! The thin tip means its perfect for creating a cat flick or wing as you can give it a good few attempts without putting too much on at once.
BB Cream Matte – Shade ‘Very Light’.*
I have actually never used a BB cream before, I am more of a full coverage foundation kinda girl, but to my surprise this has completely changed my conception of a BB cream. This is my go to product for the ‘No makeup, makeup days’ – it’s perfect for when I just don’t feel like concealing my skin and giving it a little break for once. The shade is perfect for my natural pale skin tone and is a lightweight and non-oily formula. This actually reminds me of Vichy’s Idealia Life Serum! I apply this all over my face using my fingers and it instantly brightens my skin, evens my skin tone and generally gives me that little extra glow to my skin – all without looking like I’ve caked it on! The BB Cream also contains an added extra of SPF 15 and as I’m also heading off to Orlando next month, I can see this being my everyday product out there to keep my skin looking fresh and glowing!
Scandal’Eyes Mascara – ‘Extreme Black’.
When it comes to my mascara, I always love the thick and volumised look. Enter Scandal’Eyes with its big brush formulated with keratin formula to find the teeny tiny lashes I never knew I had. I usually start with a thinner and lengthening mascara such as Maybelline Great Lash and then I add Scandal’Eyes on top. The mascara really boosts the look of my lashes without giving a clumpy or spidery look. As the brush is quite large, I had wondered whether it would work on my bottom lashes without leaving smudges everywhere, but it’s just perfect – I can’t beat it!
Lasting Finish Lipstick – ‘Coral In Gold’.
It’s not often I delve into the world of lipsticks, but Rimmel’s ‘Coral In Gold’ shade is a gorgeous coral with hints of shimmer – perfect for spring and summer time! The gold tones are subtle enough that you can wear this shade day and night. It looks lovely teamed with a tan (If I ever have one!), has a creamy texture when applying and also gives a high impact colour.
