A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be one of ten winners in Beauty at Tesco’s #RimmelGold giveaway! I just replied to their tweet with the hashtag and luckily won, woo hoo! My prize was a golden envelope filled with some awesome Rimmel makeup goodies!
Inside the envelope was –
- ‘How to get the Wonderfull look’ leaflet,
- Match Perfection Foundation in Soft Beige
- Brow This Way Brow Gel in Brown
- Scandaleyes Gel Eyeliner in Black
- Wonderfull Mascara in Black
- Colour Rush Balm in Not an illusion
The Colour Rush Balm in Not An Illusion is a lovely mid-tone pink. I can’t tell you enough how much I love the formula of these balms, they feel really, well, balmy! They’re not sticky, don’t dry the lips, and give a good amount of colour which lasts a good couple of hours before you need to reapply. Not An Illusion is the perfect every day shade for me too.
The Brow This Way product though, hmm. I must say I wasn’t very impressed. I found this product really hard to apply. It seemed to come out really patchy and not stick to my brows very well, and when I applied more pressure to make it stick, the thickness of the wand means it just made a mess everywhere and felt really heavy to wear. I’ve added a look photo at the end of this post so you can see the state of my eyebrows after using this! If you’ve used this and have any application tips, please let me know!
The Match Perfection Foundation was another good product though. Again this is a great every day product if you’re looking for a foundation you can just throw on every day that won’t break the bank. Soft Beige was probably a smidge too dark for me, but still wearable, and I have been wearing it quite sheer. Which reminds me to mention this foundation is really easily to build up the colour and coverage if you’re looking for a more full coverage look. This is definitely a winner in my book!
I just realised I forgot to swatch the eyeliner, oops! The Scandaleyes Gel Eyeliner reminds me very much of my Maybelline Gel Eyeliner, even down to the style of packaging. This product gives a fantastic intense deep black line that’s super easy to apply with the included brush.
And lastly the Wonderfull Mascara. I’m afraid this wasn’t wonderful at all and was really bit of a let down for me. I have really short and fine lashes so I need both volume and length, and unfortunately this appeared to give me neither. It just didn’t work for me.
So here I am wearing the products – you can see my eyebrows are a bit of a state! Maybe I was just applying it wrong? I don’t know! Please tell me if you have any tips for using this product!??
So overall I have three wins and two fails in this little bundle, and I really can’t recommend the Colour Rush Balm enough, I may have to treat myself to some more shades now 🙂
I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of these products? I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx
