As a brand i enjoy Rimmel quite a lot; it's quirky, affordable and has a really great range of products. It's quite rare that i find myself disappointed in a product by Rimmel but there are a few products that really stand out to me. So if you would like to know what products I'd personally recommend trying from the brand, then keep reading.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
This is one of the only foundations i have ever repurchased. I really like it because it's really good at brightening up the skin and making you look much more awake as it's an illuminating foundation but it's not too over the top. One of the initial things i worried about  was that the illuminating properties in it might be too shimmery but it's actually really subtle and just looks really nice and healthy. The coverage is quite light but it is buildable and it gives the skin a really lovely natural finish.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Nude and Taupe
These are brilliant kohl eyeliners - they are really creamy and glide along the eyes so easily which often isn't the case with cheap eyeliners. They are really pigmented and they actually stay in place with very minimal smudging. Taupe is a lovely light grey toned brown which goes really nice with a subtle smokey eye as it's not too harsh and Nude is possible my favourite one as it's amazing and opening up the eyes and giving the illusion that you look wide awake.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 107
A cult blogger product that I'm sure most of you already own but what can i say it's such a lovely lip product that i just couldn't not include it in the post. It's a gorgeous berry/ wine red shade and it is so beautiful, its one of those shades that just reminds me of autumn time and i love it. It's a long lasting lipstick, it's creamy to wear and it has a slightly matte finish to it but its not drying.

Rimmel Wonder'full Mascara
I feel like this mascara could be quite a love or hate type product but I personally love the effect it has on my lashes, it adds length and oomph to the lashes but it's very natural and subtle. The brush is really great at separating the lashes and making them look more fuller than they are. The mascara has  argon oil infused into the formula so that it conditions the lashes - i don't notice a massive difference in the conditioning but just as a mascara i really like it.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
I've used up my one of this hence why it's not included into the photo but i loved using this concealer under the eyes because it really opened up and brightened up the under eye area as well as covering any dark circles. I even found it worked well at covering blemishes too which i didn't expect when its an illuminating product, i thought it would have highlighted blemishes but it did not.

  1. I did not like the mascara but have seen so many great reviews on it, I might go buy it again and see if I change my mind!
