With Summer finally in full swing it is the perfect time switch up your makeup look and go for more of a healthy, radiant glow. Rimmel have got you covered this Summer with their Ready For Radiance Collection which will help you get the ultimate Summer glow. I love wearing makeup with a cute beachy vibe and the fact that you can opt for more of a subtle radiance or go all out with that bronzed, golden sunkissed look it is completely up to you.
This palette comes in two shades, I have the Coral Glow one which is the lighter of the two and perfect for my skintone. This is a handy trio to have in your collection and the packaging is super cute, I adore the rose gold touches it makes it look a lot more expensive. In this trio you get,
- Soft shimmer powder to highlight
- Shading powder to contour
- Powder blush for colour and definition
The highlight shade is a pretty champagne shade but be warned it is a little on the light side, I wish it was more radiant but it still works and it makes a great inner corner highlight for your eye makeup too. The contour and blush shade are more pigmented and fantastic quality. The blush shade is my favourite from the three powders, it’s a gorgeous matte coral pink and is such a flattering colour.
This is a new release from Rimmel for Summer 2017, it’s a multi tonal bronzing powder which will give you that pretty bronzed glow with a touch of highlight. It is available in three shades and I have the Medium shade which is a great shade for me during the warmer months. It has a very subtle shimmer running through it, just enough to catch the light and enhance that sunkissed, radiant look, as opposed to looking full on glitter face.
The powder is really finely milled and you can build up the intensity without it becoming cakey on the skin. It also makes a very pretty eyeshadow if you’re short on space in your makeup bag. I really like Rimmel powder products and this one did not disappoint.
This is a matte instant tan for body & face which comes in three shades, I have the medium one and it’s pretty dark (I have quite fair skin). I was shocked with how dark this looked when I first squeezed it out the tube but once I applied it to my skin it was a perfect caramel colour. It has thick gel texture which makes it really easy to massage in and get a very even coverage.
This contains no shimmer but gives the skin a nice glow and develops into a very believable tan, it isn’t orange or streaky but looks deep and natural. I use a mitt to apply and be warned that it dries down quickly so don’t dilly dally when applying it. It is buildable but for me one application is enough to give me a good natural looking tan and I love that the colour doesn’t transfer on to my clothes and the products leaves my skin feeling soft too. I think this is one of my favourite instant tan products and it has a really nice scent too. This tan is such an utter bargain, so make sure you check it out. Oh & this does come in a shimmer option too if you prefer.
If you like cream cheek products then these new Duo Contour Sticks from the recent Insta Rimmel Collection just might win you over. They are available in three shades, I have the lightest option and WOW is it pigmented. Both ends are so creamy and very easy to blend, the contour shade is very dark maybe a little too dark for me if I am honest. If you have the patience you may be able to blend it out enough so it works as a contour but I just looked like I have bronzed up the hollows of my cheeks & that wasn’t cute.
The Highlighter end of this duo was beautiful and the ideal tone for me. It gives my cheeks a pretty luminous glow. I do like the stick application, it makes it easy to apply and you can be very precise with where you place the product. Not my favourite Rimmel release but I am not the biggest fan of cream products – I always reach for powder when given a choice.
