Recently Rimmel were kind enough to send me some of their products via an Influenster Vox Box. If you don’t know what Influenster is, it’s basically an online beauty community where you can review products and test others. You don’t even have to be a blogger to sign up so literally anyone with social media accounts can participate.
The products they sent over were part of their new range and it seem sot be all about the sparkles! In the box there was a mascara, three lipglosses, two liners, a pack of tattoos and of course a nail polish. Rimmel are known for their fab nail polishes and this one is stunning too. The box is stunning and so are all of the products too! I’m kind of in love with the whole theme and packaging of the products.
So let’s start with the eyeliners. Yes these are my absolute favourites. I have honestly never had such great eyeliners. The brush is a winner on this one. It’s really long so you can basically cover your whole eye in just one swipe which is always a win. Lazy girl hacks for eyeliner. It makes it perfect for winged eyeliner as you can basically just stamp it on the edge of your eye, connect the lines and bobs your uncle. The black one is so black and it dries completely matte which is another perk of the product. As for the gold one the formula isn’t quite spot on but I imagine it is pretty hard to get gold eyeliners just right. I am a big fan though. It looks really nice as a double winged eyeliner with the black one.
Next up are the glosses. These are known as the lip art lipsticks. They are completely glossy and metallic so if you were much more creative than me you could definitely create some fancy looks with these. I love the different colours they do. They aren’t conventional lipstick colours but this really makes it all the better. The colours are gold, silver and a rose gold sort of colour. My favourite is definitely the rose gold colour. They layer on the lips really nicely and the shine lasts all night. My friend wore it to a party and her verdict is that it was pretty fun. The sparkles are top notch too.
As for the mascara, I’m a bit of a mascara junkie and so I know the best formulas when it comes to eyelashes. This one ranks pretty well. It is really black and I love the brush on this one too. I always prefer the plasticy brushes as I feel like there is so much more control with how you can apply the mascara and focus the volume. This mascara seems to add a lot of volume to my lashes and makes them look so much longer. It does have a tendency to smudge as the formula is on the liquid side which isn’t always a criticism. You get a lot of product for your money as this tube is hella large.
The temporary tattoos are a cute little touch too. Nothing says 2006 like a pack of festival tattoos. Unlike the ones you used to get at parties in the noughties, these ones were actually decent. The black and gold theme is really nice it gives temporary tattoos a chicer and more classy feel. These last well too. You have to actually scrub it off to remove it so there’s no problem with these just like falling off…
Overall I have been really impressed with these products. It’s just a major shame they aren’t a cruelty free brand but if that’s not something that influences your decisions then these products are definitely for you!!
