Well, doesn't it seem like Rimmel have gone above and beyond this year with all of the fab new
products? I feel like I own just about every Rimmel London product out there and I use this brand
more than any other, really I do!

I honestly think they are one of the top drugstore makeup brands and have even dedicated one of my
videos showing you my makeup using just their products alone! Check it out here!

When it comes to doing my makeup, I have yet to get it perfect, but I have learned a lot over the
years and one of the most important lessons I now swear by is to get your base right! This begins
with your general health and skincare regime, but then it begins with a good makeup base. Get
that down pat and you'll be looking #Insta selfie flawless in no time!

Now this here is the kind of powder I have been searching for! I wear makeup almost everyday for
work and most of the time it can sit on my face for up to 10+ hours. My face isn't overly oily, but it
certainly isn't dry in the slightest either. By about the middle of the day my face naturally starts to get
that sheen and oil begins to build up on my t-zone.

This powder is sooo good to take with me on long days at work so I can touch up around mid
afternoon when you can really begin to see the shine coming through my makeup, ew! The snap
lock lid makes it really secure in my handbag and I just pack a little mini powder brush with me to
use with it. Works a treat and apparently you can also use this without makeup to soak up any excess
oil throughout the day. Pretty cool I say!

Rimmel London #Insta Conceal & Contour

These three shades from lightest to darkest are named - Highlight Illuminer, Conceal Corriger and
Contour Sculpter. "Conceal" and "Sculpter" yes, however I don't really see the lightest shade doing
much highlighting or illuminating. It is more of a light bronze/contour shade in my opinion. It doesn't
have any shimmer or glow to it at all and appears quite a few shades darker than my natural skin tone
so for me it's more of a shade to sculpt and define my features more than illuminating them.

The middle shade appears more of a skin toned colour as opposed to the first shade on the left which
has more of a bronze tone to it. This middle shade also seems lighter than the first and is very close to
my own skin colour. I have just been using this as an eyeshadow base which works pretty good
actually as I can't seem to use it for anything else.

The darkest shade is where we get to have some fun! It is a great shade for contouring and sculpting.
It similar to the Benefit Hoola in cream form.

Rimmel London #Insta Conceal & Correct

The three shades from this trio from left to right are called - Dark Circles Cernes, Redness Rougeurs
and Dullness Teint Terne. Honestly, I haven't had a a lot of experience playing with correcting
makeup. I am pretty lucky that my skin has been pretty good to me apart from a bit of acne which
seems to have finally settled down over the past few years.

But what do you do when you have something new to try? You give it a good cracker of a go of
course, why not!?

The first shade is a peachy pink which works to conceal dark under eye circles. I don't really get
darkness under my eyes unless I haven't slept at all but after trying this I did see it did brighten up
that area of my face which is a definite plus!

Isn't it weird how a shade to help with redness on the skin is actually green in colour? However
somehow it just works! I don't suffer any redness on my face, BUT I do get the odd red rash on my
neck for some reason for absolutely NO reason at all. The creamy texture of this makes it really easy
to work into my problem areas and conceals the rash instantly, it's really very discreet!

Something I have learned recently with my skin, is that with ageing comes dullness! Boo! My skin
especially gets dull when I am tired, haven't drunk enough water or when I am stressed. These
everyday issues aren't as easy to hide as they once were. Now I just dab a little bit of the violet
shade here and there on my face, usually just on the recommended areas like the middle of the
forehead, lower cheeks and sides of the chin. I use this under my foundation but over my primer.

Rimmel London #Insta Flawless & #Insta Fix & Go

I have already reviewed the #Insta Flawless Skin Perfecter HERE so if you want to learn more you
can check it out there.

I have been using the #Insta Fix & Go 3-in-1 Mist for quite a new months now and am quite
enjoying the experience. The scent with the cucumber extracts makes it smell extremely refreshing
and it is a light natural scent which is great for something you are spraying onto your face! If you
have tried the Rimmel London mascara with the cucumber extracts they released about a year or so
ago then it has the same scent as that!

The spray bottle distributes the formula quite fast and generously so you'll want to hold it a good arm
length away from you face when you spray it so you don't get too wet and ruin your makeup. Doesn't
 seem to matter too much for the priming stage however and if I get too much spray I just massage it
into my skin, let it dry and then go ahead applying my makeup. No dramas. It dries quickly too
which is great when you're on a time crunch in the morning! It does a minimal job at minimising my
pores, but does seem to keep my makeup in place throughout the day. I have not used this in the hot
 summer months when I am sure to be sweating so I will be interested to see how it holds my
makeup on those kinds of days!

As always you can purchase these products and more from Rimmel from your local Priceline, Target,
Chemist Warehouse, Big W and Woolworths.
