I’ve had a love affair with Rimmel for many years now so I’m always excited to review and try each new product they create. It’s certainly a blogger perk I love and one you could barely call work.
Recently I received a lovely package from Rimmel containing the much talked about #Insta Flawless Perfecting, Radiant Skin Tint and two products from the Love Kate collection, the Kate Conditioning Balm and the Kate Sculpting Palette Kit. The instant I saw the packaging I knew I would love these products, they screamed my name and ticked my makeup wishlist: radiant, highlight and gloss. But most importantly they were all my fave neutral colours.
Although I’m a walking and talking makeup bag, I still like to keep things natural and tend to stay away from bright colours. To begin I started with #Insta Flawless (with a name like that, who wouldn’t?), I squeezed a small amount onto my hand and proceeded to apply it to my face. The first thing I noticed was the gorgeous scent and as I applied the tint to my skin I began to see a nice soft glow. By the time I had finished, my face felt hydrated and clean unlike a foundation finish.
The tint is light, easy to apply and left my skin feeling great. It’s not thick like some tints but do note that a little bit goes a long way, so don’t be put off by the small bottle. You only need a little amount to achieve good coverage.
#Insta Flawless is perfect for day wear especially as it has SPF15. The built-in moisturiser left my skin feeling hydrated all throughout the day and into the evening without clogging my pores. This is also a great product to use for night-time as a primer and applying your foundation over the top creates a gorgeous finish which left my skin glowing.
A big thumbs up on #Insta Flawless I was #instawowed.
Next I moved on to the Sculpting Palette from the Love Kate collection ( The Kate Moss Collection), and I have to be honest, contouring and I have not been friends previously. I’ve made some huge contouring blunders that have left me looking like a Gridiron player. The huge selling point for me with this product is that it’s a powder, so I was filled with confidence because powders I’m experienced with!
This kit really is a great starting point for contour-virgins because there are easy to follow instructions on the back that make it impossible to get wrong. The top powder is the Highlight Illuminer that immediately lured me in. The colour is everything you could want in a highlighter with a soft shimmer that screams, “Use me”. The second powder in the palette is the Contour Sculpter that creates a beautiful finish and contours your face. The third and last powder is the blush and the colour is stunning.
I followed the simple instructions and within seconds I had actually contoured! I was shocked, it worked! The powders were easy to use and left a beautiful finish that was so easy to achieve. Each of the colours are versatile and can be used outside of contouring – the highlighter makes an amazing eyeshadow. This kit is now officially in my day-to-day makeup bag and part of my regular routine. A big thumbs up to Rimmel on this product, it’s sensational.
Last is the Kate Conditioning Lip Balm, a fabulous balm in lipstick form that glides onto your lips like an ice skater on ice. It’s light and luxurious, perfect for gals like me that rarely wear lipstick. The balm is super hydrating and stays on your lips for hours without turning chalky. This is one product I’ve since bought three of so I have one in the car, at home, in the office and in my handbag. It’s a big must-have for any makeup bag and something I will continue to use.
Rimmel never fails to impress me with their commitment to giving women more from their cosmetics. Each of these products did exactly what they said they would and kept delivering throughout the day.
