Favourite Brands: Rimmel

22 September 2014
One brand that I've been loyal to since I started venturing into the world of makeup is Rimmel, in fact I think the first makeup bits & pieces I ever bought were from Rimmel and years later they're still one of my favourite drugstore brands, if not my favourite. They have an amazing range of products, are budget friendly and the quality of their products is always spot on! Its probably the brand that I own the most from and I thought I'd express my love in the form of blog post with some of my all time favourites from the brand over the years. Hope you enjoy!


Rimmel foundations, (closely followed by Bourjois) are my favourite brand of foundation from the drugstore, the Rimmel Match Perfection was one of the few foundations that was light enough to suit my skin and worked well throughout the sunnier months when I needed a lighter base or for a good skin day. Another foundation of theirs which is most loved is their Wake Me Up Foundation by me, its a pinch too dark for me in the winter but come spring and summer when I tan a little (read: I'm bright pink) this is what I reach for. The matching Wake Me Up concealer is also incredible, these two together are the perfect duo and although the concealers a little lighter than I'm used to, sometimes the extra shimmer is just what I need.

Now Rimmel sure do know how to do their powders in every shape and form, setting powder, blush, bronzer you name it and they're all spot on. For years, the stay matte powder has been my number one and I'm afraid to think about how many I've got through but it does everything I need so theres no point spending a small fortune on a more expensive powder which might not be quite so good. I've owned a few of their blushes and bronzers, the most recent being the sun shimmer bronzer which my housemate unfortunately dropped and it was smashed to pieces but I've been impressed by both of these and probably need some more in my collection.

My first eyeliner and mascara was from Rimmel, just the standard black kohl pencil and I think it was the extra superlash mascara, very simple but from what I can remember it did what it was meant to do. It didn't smudge, didn't make my lashes all clumpy and stayed on throughout the day so my younger self didn't see the need to venture out into other brands, that all happened later on. R.I.P bank balance.

Lastly my favourite offerings from the brand is their lipsticks, all of Rimmel's different ranges like the Kate Moss range and the Moisture Renew range and even the Apocalips haven't left me dissappointed once. Theres always such an amazing choice of shades, the pigmentation is superb, they're not drying in the slightest and you can always find dupes for more expensive lipsticks. My favourites would have to be the Kate Moss range though, my favourite nude this summer has been 03 from her range and for autumn I'm sure 107 will be back on my lips again. Once these are paired with a lipliner you can really do no wrong.

All in all I absolutely love all of the Rimmel products I've tried over the years and I'm nowhere near halfway through trying them all but if you don't own that many Rimmel products I advise having a browse of their stand next time you're shopping. I can't wait to try some more new things!  

Thanks for reading, Jenny xo
