Rimmel kindly sent me these products to review* All opinions are my own
Rimmel is one of my favourite makeup brands on the high street. As the products are affordable and good quality.
I got sent the Scandaleyes Reloaded mascara, Scandaleyes bold eye liner, 2 lipsticks and Magnif'eyes. In this post I will be giving mini reviews about the products and swatches. These products you can use to create either a day makeup look, night makeup look or take your makeup from day to night.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Reloaded mascara
This is the mascara that I use everyday. I'm really impressed by it as it provides dramatic lashes but easy to remove at the end of the day. I previously reviewed this mascara on my blog here. I talked in depth about the product e.g the brush and formula.
When it comes to mascara I am extremely fussy as I like volumised lashes but separated. My eyes are also sensitive so it can be hard to find one that doesn't irritate my eyes. I have used this mascara since November and I've had to reaction to it. So if you have sensitive eyes like me and are worried about trying new mascaras, this one is good.
Since my first review about this product my opinion on this product hasn't changed. I still really enjoy using this mascara and will continue to keep on using it. When it comes to Rimmel mascaras in general they are good.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Bold
This claims to be a waterproof eye liner and it is. This will last on your lash line all day/night until you decide to remove it with eye makeup remover. It doesn't flake, transfer or fade. These are major benefits to me as the last thing I want to be worrying about is my eye liner. I am really impressed by how black this is. It's a true black and with one swipe you get that colour, which means you don't have to keep layering the product for colour payoff.
If you prefer natural eye liner with a thin line there are other eyeliners in the Rimmel scandaleyes range suited for that. But if you prefer a bold eye liner look then this eye liner caters for you. The ball tip allows you to get a thicker and more dramatic line.
Magnif'eyes contouring palette
003 Grunge Glamour
I own several single eyeshadows from Rimmel and I am really impressed with them. This palette is no different. As soon as I saw this palette I knew I would use it a lot. As my preferred eye makeup look is smoky eyes.
In this palette you get 8 shades which are a mix of matte and shimmer. You can either create a neutral day look with this or go for a dramatic eye look. This palette is the perfect size to put in your handbag for you to transform your eye makeup look from day to night.
As you can see from the swatch above the shades are all pigmented (in the swatches above I used no eye shadow primer and one swipe of the colour) My favourite shades in this palette is the white for highlighting the brow bone and tear duct. The burgundy shade to make a look more dramatic and to add a pop of colour. I have hooded eyes and these eyeshadows don't crease on me.
15th Anniversary Collection
56 Boho Nude
Nude lipsticks rarely ever impress me as I am really fussy with what shade I like. I prefer brown toned nudes as they are more flattering on me. This lipstick is one of my favourite nude lipsticks. As soon as I swatched it etc it reminded me of Kate Moss lipstick in 03 (which is now discontinued) that was my holy grail nude lipstick. This has taken it's place as the shades are really similar etc.
This lipstick has a satin finish: not too glossy but not too matte either. It wears really nice on the lips and when it does wear off it fades nicely.
I love the packaging of Kate Moss lipsticks in general but the rose gold makes it look a lot more expensive. Kate Moss lipstick range from Rimmel is one of my favourite celebrity collaborations with a brand.
The only 1
810 One of a Kind
Bold lipstick shades I am a fan of in general. You only have to look through my Twitter and Instagram to know that.
This is the perfect shade to take your makeup from day to night. The finish of the lipstick is satin. Unlike other lipsticks I've tried this feels moisturising on the lips and it doesn't dry my lips out. This lasts around 6-8 hours on the lips even with eating and drinking. I will be buying more shades from this range because of the longevity and how pigmented they are.
My Overall Opinion
My reviews about these products is 100% honest. I am really impressed with all of these products, nothing disappointed me. The quality of the lipsticks, mascaras, eyeshadows etc rival some of the higher end brands. For the price of Rimmel products they are budget friendly but good quality. These products are either in my makeup bag or on my desk so I can easily reach for them.
