Rimmel Summer Glow Makeup

Rimmel products for that summer glow

Rimmel bronzing makeup products

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.

Rimmel products for that summer glow

Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palette

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.

Rimmel Radiance Brick

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.

Rimmel Sunshimmer Instant Tan

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.

Rimmel Insta Duo Contour Stick

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.

Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick Collection

New Rimmel The Only One Matte Collection

Rimmel The Only One Matte Lipsticks

Rimmel Matte Lipsticks

Exciting news, Rimmel have released a new range of Matte Lipsticks which promise high impact colour, a non drying formula and a comfortable velvety matte finish. I think Rimmel have knocked it out of the park with the Only 1 Matte Lipstick Collection and they delivered on all promises which for anafforable matte lip option is pretty rare.

I have 9 shades and I think the colour selection is pretty good, they seem to have covered most bases. They have a nice range of wearable universal nudes, soft pinks, classic reds and then they have a couple of deeper colours in the form of a plum toned brown and a vibrant purple. They’re missing a peach (in my opinion) but I hope they extend the range a little in the future, for now I think there is most definitely a shade or two for everyone and a colour for every occasion.

110 Leader Of The Pink – A beautiful soft rosie pink

120 – Call The Shots – A bright, bold red toned pink

200 – Salute – Gorgeous everyday pink nude, such a flattering shade

500 Take The Stage – A true festive red shade

610 – High Flyer – A darker, more dusky nude

700 – Trendsetter – This is such a pretty brown nude

750 – Look Who’s Talking – Is a rich brown shade

800 – Run The Show – A vibrant purple, with incredible colour pay off

810 – The Matte Factor – A beautiful rich berry toned red. Reminds me of mulled wine

Affordable Matte Lipsticks From Rimmel

The texture of these is not what you would expect from a typical matte lipstick, it is more creamy which means its lovely to apply, it glides on the lips with ease. The colours are all very pigmented and the lighter shades flawless but a couple of the darker shades apply quite patchy, in particular the shade Look Who’s Talking needed two coats to work but that is also the beauty with this collection you can build up the colours and their intensity which is fab.

My favourite shades are Salute, High Flyer and Call The Shots, they’re all easy to wear everyday shades. I have had Salute in my handbag since it arrived, it freshens up my makeup and it is such a subtle, pretty shade.

Matte lips are bang on trend at the moment and although these aren’t the most long wearing option out there, I think they are easy to wear, comfortable on the lip and the colour selection is really good. If like me you struggle with the really drying formula of most long wearing matte lipsticks then this new formula from Rimmel will be right up your alley. It is more of a satin matte finish and the formula very much reminds me of my favourite Comfort Matte lipstick from Urban Decay but a fraction of the price.

So if you’re looking for a pigmented, long wearing lipstick for Autumn / Winter but don’t want a formula that is going to be too drying then I think these need to be on the list! My one gripe is the scent is odd, not sure what it is but I am not a fan.

Which do you think is your favourite shade?
