Founded by Mr.Eugene Rimmel, its one of the most popular cosmetic brands in the world, with a motto 'Get the London look!'. Read the fantastic history of Rimmel here.
So I got to choose some stuff for Spring 2012 and swatch and it and put it on the blog. These are only swatches and previews (happened over a span of an hour and half and a lovely coffee) and I haven't really got any products to go into the depth.
Have a look!!!
This is not the entire collection which was shown to me. There are like a million pieces there and I chose and swatched what I liked the best suitable colors and products for Spring 2012 with Beauty Traveller
The Glam'eyes mascara has a lovely toothed comb wand which seperates and defines the lashes adding lenghth and little bit of volume.
Lashes looks amazingly separated, lengthened and glossy (lacquered)
The brushes of this mascara line have 3 domes shaped balls which makes lashes go gaga. Sorry that I forgot to take the picture of the wands.
They had like 15 lipglosses and I had a difficult time choose the best five. The colors are amazing, smell divine and last quite sometime. Good for photoshoots though as they impart an expensive sheen to the lips and looks sparkly and non sticky.
Note: That's not my hand. Its of the lovely and gorgeous PR lady.
Again a million lipsticks in long lasting, flirty and sheer glossy formulas. I picked up this color called Heather Shimmer and with a bit of research found that it was a favorite of Kate Moss. Now I know why? Its such a lovely purple beige color. Looks amazing. All the colors I chose did. Btw they have lovely reds which I plan to buy when they launch the line.
Lots of colored pencils in kohls and waterproof formulations. The range is extensive and its tough to choose the best ones. I chose purples and plums out of sheer excitement.
The lip liners of Rimmel are too good. They have beveled tapering edge to add precision as per required. The formula is very long lasting and thanks to Lisa Eldridge these seem fun.
Swatches of pencils pictured. The brow pencil is amazing and not seen in mass brands generally.
And then comes the show stealer.
This 25 hr foundation is amazing I got the right color for my skin. I stayed through my travel and sweating and seems to be a cheaper answer to MAC Prolongwear though this very hydrating and feels smooth. It really stays till you remove it though I could need some shine control on the nose area.
Rimmel has an amazing range of makeup which I am waiting to pounce upon. So here's a sneak peak at this favorite brand of Londoners. I haven't received any samples from the PR and I shall review and incorporate in photoshoots and professional work whenever I will get them. Also intending to buy lots of stuff when they officially launch.
Do let me know your thought about Rimmel London then.
