It seems as if Rimmel is always bringing out something new; which isn’t a bad thing. It does however make it difficult to decide what products to try first, if you’re a fan of the brand. Two of their most recent collection are the #Insta range – designed to perfect your makeup for selfies – and the Camo collection – a collaboration with Cara Delevingne that focusses on earthy tones.
First up, the Rimmel Insta Contour Stick* (£6.99 from Superdrug) is a handy little product that comes in light, medium and dark. I have light. It contains a cream stick shimmery champagne highlighter on one end and a cream stick matte contour on the other end. It’s very slimline, so is a great product for makeup on the go. The sticks allow you to get precise application and they blend really nicely into the skin. Perfect for getting your summer glow on.
I also really like the Rimmel Insta Fix & Matte Powder* (£4.99 from Superdrug) from the same collection. I love that this translucent powder is embossed with hashtags (I’m such a social media geek!). This is a really good, finely milled powder for setting your makeup and mattifying any oily areas throughout the day. It works and it’s invisible – which is all you need.
The last product in the #Insta collection that i’ve really enjoyed using is the Rimmel Insta Fix & Go Setting Spray* (£6.99 from Superdrug). The mist on this setting spray is fine, it sprays evenly and its very cooling. I’ve found that it locks my makeup in place really well – it’s definitely a setting spray that I’d purchase again.
Onto the Camo collection, the Rimmel Cara Camo Brow This Way Argan Oil Brow Gel* (£4.49 from Superdrug) is impressive. The brush is small and precise, and I get a really good colour match with the Dark Brown shade. There is a clear version too, if you don’t want a tint. It’s a brow setting gel that’s formulated with Argan Oil to condition your brow hairs as well as keep them in place.
There only seems to be one lipstick in the collection, but it’s a good one that I think is pretty much a universal shade. The Rimmel Cara Camo Lasting Finish Nude Lipstick 45* (£5.49 from Superdrug) is a pinky nude with quite a sheer finish, and it feels very moisturising on the lips. The only thing I don’t like about it is the smell – it smells of cherry sweets and makes me feel a bit sick, which is a real shame.
Finally, the Rimmel Cara Camo 60 Secs Super Shine Nail Polish* (£2.99 from Superdrug) is a lovely nude shade that makes my nails look shiny and healthy. It dries quickly and lasts a good few days on me without chipping (which is good for a regular nail polish). There’s also a khaki green and black shade, but I don’t know who would want to wear these in the summer?!
Have you tried any products from these two Rimmel collections?
