Rimmel Mini Haul

So….I went shopping, had no money to spend realistically and ended up coming back with a mini Rimmel haul…..like you do!  What possessed me to pick up these bits?  I blame watching too many You Tube videos with Aisling aka Dramaticmac.  She recently won a competition with Rimmel and has since been chatting about a lot of their products.  In all fairness they do a Wake Me Up concealer which has become a ‘go-to’ ahead of Nars and Urban Decay for me.  So I had already gone through the brain process that if the concealer is that good, I should try the foundation to match.  So I got that last month.

This week they were on offer 3 for 2 at Boots.  So I bought a red lip pencil for my Mac red lipstick.  I got a replacement concealer for my other which is near the end in the colour True Ivory.  I picked a Kate Moss lipstick in shade 38 which is a bit like a peach based nude, nice for the spring.  I also picked up a blush in Santa Rose which seems to be a popular colour choice.  Also a new Lasting finish primer, a BB cream and one of the new Trios which have a blusher, bronzer and highlighter in.


The idea in my head is if I can get a palette and mascara I will do a Rimmel full face blog with pictures!  In the Trio I really like the colour of the blusher and the highlighter.  The bronzer is slightly dark for general use and certainly to dark to contour with but as I have a little bit of tan from holiday, lucky me, its ok at the moment.  I would like to get the lighter trio too but I was glad I’d picked the darker one for now as the rest were all lighter, so I think they will be easy enough to get hold of.  I’ve included swatches of them in the pictures.

From the top down swatches are Trio Blusher Trio Bronzer Trio Highlighter Rimmel Santa Rose Blush No 38 Kate lipstick Rimmel lip pencil Red Dynamite

I thought the BB cream would be nice for the summer when you don’t have time to do a full face or need to put on a lot and the reviews were excellent,  even for dry flaky skin, so I’ll keep you posted on that.  The primer is not as creamy as the L’oreal Lumi Magique but has the same whiteness so it will be interesting to see if it gives the same level of dewiness to the skin.

To finish off my haul I bought the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 palette which is the dupe for the UD Naked 3, but at £4 its a steal.  I’ve held off getting it but just decided to bite the bullet as the feel of them is so creamy and the pay off seems to be really good.  Two of them are possibly as good as my Urban Decay ones, when I get a moment I want to compare the feel and longevity of them.

So that’s my mini haul.  Thanks for reading.  What have you got from Rimmel that you suggest trying?
