BRAND FOCUS | rimmel

hello dolls. i recently watched Essiebutton's Bourjois brand focus video and that gave me the idea to do the same on blog form. i've recently been reaching more and more to the Rimmel stand because i have been thoroughly impressed with their products. i'll admit that i never thought Rimmel was a decent brand, i think i had one bad experience with a product and then dismissed it all together. WRONG. very wrong and young i was. Rimmel is absolutely amazing, and their selection of products just keeps growing and getting better and better. voila! i have so many Rimmel products that i honestly forgot that i even had.. but i love it all.
Rimmel Apocolips Lip Lacquer

i own a large amount of rimmel lip products especially. i love the formula that their lipsticks have, and i've recently been introduced to the Apocolips Lip Lacquers when they FINALLY came to Canada. trust me.. i was counting down the days. i have 3 shades in the Apocolips, 3 shades in the Kate Moss lipsticks and 3 shades of their Moisture Renew lipsticks.. apparently i buy things in trios. aha. 

  • 301- galaxy, a beautiful plum berry colour which is perfect for fall 
  • 401- aurora, a really nice coral pink shade which adds a great pop on the lips
  • 101- celestial, a rose colour that is perfect for every day wear
  • 109- a matte orange/coral colour, great for summer or spring.
  • 102- a matte baby pink -your lips but better- colour. 
  • 06- a bright fuschia colour, also amazing for summer. 
  • 700- nude delight, the perfect nude. 
  • 180- vintage pink, a mauve/pink which is gorgeous on the lips
  • 300- rose blush, beautiful medium pink, with just a touch of sheen/shimmer. 
Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeshadow stick - 006 paranoid purple

i don't own many eyeshadow/liner pencils and i know adding a bright pop of colour at the lash line is a really popular look right now. i have dark brown eyes and it is known that purple helps to make brown eyes POP. i really do like this shade, it's edgy which i'm fond of. it says that it's 24/hr waterproof, i found that it did last alright, but it isn't THAT waterproof. i still like the product though. 

MY FAVOURITE FOUNDATION/POWDER COMBINATION is the Rimmel "Wake me Up" foundation paired with the "Rimmel Stay Matte Powder".  the foundation has just the right amount of shimmer in it to look natural on the skin, and dewy, yet it has very buildable coverage. i will continue to buy this foundation, it is amazing. the Stay Matte Powder does just what it says, and helps keep your makeup in place for majority of the day. it's hard to find a face powder that doesn't cling to your nasty dry patches on your face, and this powder is just right. 

Rimmel was an underdog brand for me for a long time, and i'm so happy to have "re-discovered" it. they offer a lot of amazing products and you don't have to pay an arm and a leg for them. 

please recommend your favourite rimmel products in the comments so i can pick them up and try them out. hope you all are having a nice wednesday. xx 


  1. Rimmel have just launched their version of the chubby stick called 'Colour Rush.' They are really good!
