I was lucky enough to be given these products complimentary to try on behalf of Rimmel & influenster uk.
This box had 3 fabulous makeup products! Foundation, concealer & lipstick.. can you guess by now which I was the most excited about trying? The lipstick of course… I’ll review these in the order of least likely to buy to most likely.
The concealer. I thought I was going to love this but it just wasn’t for me. It reminded me of the one I always use, the age rewind maybelline one. It couldn’t be anymore different though. The product itself didn’t have the best consistency I’ve seen, it was fairly hard. The best word I could come up with for it. The applicator was also tough, it didn’t go on very nicely. I then thought how about I put it on my hand then apply it.. nope. Just not for me. It was drying before I’d even managed to blend it on my face! 🙈 Sorry rimmel, not a lover of this. The shade itself was spot on for my skin though! So influenster are good at matching 💁🏽
Now this was a bit of a close call, but the lipstick. So you all know by now how much I love lipstick. The only reason this didn’t win for me is because it’s not a matte finish. It’s not overly glossy, but just my preference, yknow? So the shade was perfect, honestly opened it & was beaming as its definitely my colour. Vintage pink, it matched my nails!! Eeee! 😁 Yes I’m that sad to be excited by that. It was definitely a beaut of a product, it probably lasted for a good few hours. Plus I love that it’s the sort of shade that you can add to a really good smokey eye makeup look or for everyday wear as it’s not too much of an out there kind of colour. Well done rimmel 🙌🏽👄
The foundation was the winner. The bottle is mahoosive so I feel like this is going to last me quite well. My favourite foundation before I tried this was a rimmel one, the wake me up range. So I felt happy to get another foundation. It didn’t disappoint! Have you seen the applicator on this?! Perfect! The foundation shade is beautiful & the consistency of it is absolutely wonderful. I think it’s a good contender with the wake me up foundation. Maybe I’ll alternate in future 🤔👌🏽 I loved that it felt light on your skin. I don’t wear foundation everyday but if I’m having a bad skin day I’ll apply it, so it’s nice to have a product that doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a lot. I hope that made sense… 😂
