A Face of Rimmel

Today I want to do a post that I have never done before but I hope to make it into a series on my blog. I am going to be doing a whole face of makeup using one brand. A lot of the time I don’t have all the products to do a whole face of makeup with from one brand but I noticed that I did for Rimmel. I find some brands are usually good for certain products i.e. Revlon for lip products and Maybelline for mascaras. Rimmel is a great brand and I think they do a really good range of products.

As I have mentioned before I was sent the Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer* by the Boots Review Panel. I really like this primer as it makes my foundation last much longer and I also find that it sits better on my skin when I have used this primer. Although I don’t think this primer reduces the appearance of pours. Next I used the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Nude Foundation this is the lighter version of the original 25 Hour foundation. I quite like this foundation I especially like that Rimmel have introduced a new lighter shade as Light Porcelain is a perfect match for me however I still find this foundation to be quite heavy I definitely prefer the Wake Me Up and now they have the lighter shade I will be picking that up. When I first got the Wake Me Up Concealer I really liked it however now I find that it is quite thick in comparison to my favourite Maybelline Fit Me Concealer although the Wake Me Up one is really good if my under eye circles are particularly bad.  As it was on offer I picked up the Lasting Finish Powder which I really like it is similar to the Fit Me one from Maybelline. They have similar packaging in that the compact lifts up and has a mirror and sponge inside, they are also very fine powders so they don’t look cakey on the skin.

The last thing I used was the Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch in Radiant Rose. This is a cream blush which also works as a highlighter. This looks really nice when you first apply it as it is a gorgeous pale pink which is shimmery so it works as a blush as well as a highlighter however by the end of the day my face is left covered in glitter which is really disappointing.

Eyes and Brows
For eyeshadow I used my 2 Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadows in the shades Punchy Taupe and Tribute. I applied Punchy Taupe all over my lid and then applied Tribute in my crease to add a bit of definition. I don’t have an eyeliner from Rimmel so that is something I need to invest in but on a daily basis I often don’t bother with eyeliner. The mascara I used was the Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara. This is a good mascara although the wand is very big which can make application a bit awkward.  For my brows I used the Brow Pencil in Dark Brown, I used to use this a lot but I have since found ones which better match the colour of my brows. In comparison to other brow products this pencil is quite hard which can make it difficult to work with.

Lips
Rimmel have some amazing lip products I really like the lipsticks from the Kate Moss range and the Moisture Renew Range but today I decided to use the Lasting Finish Colour Rush Lip Crayon in Rumour Has It. I love lip crayons and the Colour Rush ones are great, the colour is really pretty it is a dark pink which I love. It is really long lasting, when you first apply it it is very glossy and this does fade but it leaves a lovely stain.
