New From Rimmel London

New Releases From Rimmel

Rimmel London has had lots of exciting new releases recently. I've been a little slack in keeping up with them, but thought it was about time I did a little post about some of the latest, and some of my favourites!!
Let's start with Brow This Way Eyebrow Gel*. This came out during June or July (?), and at first I didn't really like it. I am usually not a huge fan of brow gels anyway, but this one was just annoying to apply and I ended up with brow gel everywhere. However, as I've become more time poor, I've started to enjoy this more and more. I find wiping the wand through a tissue first makes it easier to apply. It's really pigmented, so leaves your brows looking full and neat!

Wake Me Up Concealer Rimmel London

Another recent release was the reformulated Wake Me Up Concealer. I used to use this concealer years ago, and it was fine. I didn't love it then, but I didn't hate it either. I was excited to try it again after all these years, and I am really enjoying it. I only use it under my eyes, as the pigmentation isn't enough for my spots, but it really does brighten my under eyes and 'wake me up'. I'm already onto my second tube that's how much I'm enjoying it!

The #Insta Fix and Go Spray* came out around the same time as the concealer. It can be used as a priming and setting spray. As I have drier skin, I don't use this as a priming spray, because I prefer something a little more substantial. However, it's really lovely as a setting spray. I don't know how much it helps my make up last, but it is really refreshing and feels like I'm refreshing my skin, so I can't ask for much more!!

#Insta Flawless Rimmel London

Another #Insta product that has recently come out (and there are quite a few in this range now!) is the #Insta Flawless*. It is a little too dark for my skin, but it seems like it would make a lovely base, or lightweight tinted moisturiser if you didn't want to wear too much foundation or make up. Hoping my summer tan will let me try this out a little bit more!

If you are looking for a good, affordable setting powder, the #Insta Fix and Matte Powder* is a really lovely option! As, again, I have drier skin, I don't tend to use too much, though sometimes I like a little bit under my eyes and around my nose and chin. It definitely helps reduce shine, but without completely flattening your complexion (matte but not flat!). Also, it just has a cute imprint in the compact too.

#Insta Conceal and Contour* is Rimmel's latest cream contour palette. It is a small palette, which I admit looks a little cheap. However, I love that it is compact enough to travel or chuck in the handbag, AND it has a mirror (WIN)! The highlight and conceal are a little bit too dark to do either of that to my skin, but the contour shade works quite well. They are creamy and not super pigmented, but enough to get a subtle contour. If they had a palette designed for lighter skin it would perfect.

#Insta Conceal and Correct Rimmel

I, of course, have saved my favourite for last. #Insta Conceal and Correct* is like your typical colour correcting palette with a peachy colour, green and purple. The packaging is the same as the Conceal and Contour, and I still love that it has a mirror. I've been really enjoying this palette. The concealers aren't super dark and pigmented, so they are easy to blend into skin without leaving bright, coloured patches all over your face. I find applying it before my foundation works best for me, mostly because I don't like having the colour over the top of foundation, but that is just personal preference.
