Rimmel: My Favourite Products ( Best, Worst and So-so)


Rimmel is a brand that has been around for ages and was certainly available when I first started wearing makeup however for some reason I didnt use many of their products. Roll forward a few years and Rimmel has really upped their game with a basis of my staple products being from the range so I thought that I would share the best, the worst and the so so products that I have found from the range as there are some you dont want to miss!

The Worst:

Fortunately for me there has only ever been a few products from Rimmel that I consider the 'worst' from the range, these being the Eye Mousse, The 1000 Kisses Lip Tint Pen and the oh-so hyped Apocalips, which I do have an individual review semi-drafted for you.

Starting with the eye mousse. This, thank goodness, was discontinued from Boots and Superdrug stores years ago and thank goodness however for hose that may be tempted to puchase it for 99p from the likes of Fragrance Direct, don't. Quite simply these burned my eyes when I patted it on. They didn't work well with shadows over the top of them yet looked hideous on their own. 

The 1000 Kisses Lip Tint I have recently posted about and the reason I didn't like this, although the concept is brilliant, was the fact that the pigmentation was basically zero and if they aren't already dry or poorly pigmented when you buy them, you get no pay-off within a matter of days as they dry up. Definitely a no-no from me. 

As for the Apocalips. Well. I managed to resist the hype of these for a while but having a £5 giftcard, I decided to use that to buy myself one of these infamous lip laquers. Not only is the colour far too pigmented for me and impossible to make wearable, the colour transfers everywhere and blleds like I don't know what. For me I cannot be bothered with all the faff it takes to wear this so I shall not be buying anymore.

The So-so's

Moving swiftly on from the worst products from Rimmel are the so-so products, or in this case a so-so product. For me, products are so-so when they aren't terrible but aren't necessarily great either. This being the Hide the Blemish Concealer that was one of the first concealers I ever tried after stealing it from my mum(shhhhh). 

Although it has been ages since trying the Hide the Blemish concealer I can remember using this on my blemishes and under-eyes as it provided great coverage and if I only used a small amount it didn't appear cakey  however it was drying and could be difficult to blend.

The Best

Saving the best products til last I have my favourite products. For me I find that Rimmels strengths definitely lie in the form of Lipsticks and Face Powders with a few other gems elsewhere in their range.

Stating with their Lipsticks; I have tried two from the Kate Moss Range, one in the black packaging and one from the red packaging, and have loved both of them. 107 was the first shade I tried ( a very berry red) and after loving the pigmentation, lasting power and the fact that a matte lipstick was smooth and not drying, I decided to purchase another lipstick from the Kate Moss range, this time in the shade 05 and I have been equally impressed.

As mentioned, I also love their powders; namely the Stay Matte and Clear Complexion in the shade translucent. Both powders are matte-ifying (keeping skin matte for 4-5 hours), set my makeup in place whilst not looking cakey and are only £3.99.

My final favourite from Rimmel would have to be their Fix and Perfect primer. It does not break me out and transforms any cakey foundations that I have and helps to keep my foundation in place all day. You may know that I went through a phase of hating my Bourjois 123 Foundation as no matter how I applied this my face looked cakey however when using this before my foundation, the cakeyness was completely gone.

What makes Rimmel products even better is the price as they are extremely affordably and are frequently on offer so if you haven't checked out their lipsticks,powders or primer I highly urge you to.
