My Makeup Collection: Rimmel

Hi everyone! Today i'm going to be showing you my makeup from the brand Rimmel. I'm hoping to start a series of these with other makeup brands so comment below if you'd like to see them. Rimmel is a well known brand in the UK and is one of my favourites. So lets crack on!
(from left to right) 198 Azure, 265 Pop!, 275 Electric!, 280 Sunshine, 270 Hot Shot and 260 Green Grass (all 8ml)
The first items that I have to show you from Rimmel are these nail polishes. They are very affordable at only £2.99 each. As you can see I have chose quite bright colours for the summer. They are extremely long lasting and you only need 2 coats to get the maximum amount of colour. Overall, these are great affordable nail polishes
805 Grey Matter 12ml, 430 Coralicious 8ml
The next two products that I have from Rimmel are also nail polishes. These the the 60 seconds nail polishes. They have a wide brush which is great as it makes application much easier. Also, they do dry really fast. These are a tad more expensive at £3.69 but I do feel they are worth the money.

This is my only mascara that I own from Rimmel but i'm not very impressed  with it. As it has a big brush, it makes my lashes really clumpy and I found it hard to reach the inner corners of my eyelashes. This mascara didn't curl my lashes so it doesn't live up to its name. Hopefully next time when I buy a Rimmel mascara that they will work better. I also featured this mascara in my Mascara Collection

This was really a mistake purchase. I bought it in the wrong shade which is way to orange looking for me. Apart from that, it is really creamy and it does say that it lasts up to 14 hours, which is great for oily skin. This cost £5.99 which is not too bad for a powder considering you get a built in mirror and a sponge as well. This would be great to have in your handbag or your school bag. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 001 Transparent
This is contently raved about among youtube and on beauty blogs. I have found that it works best for me in the spring, autumn and winter times. As i have really oily skin, I've found that it doesn't work for me in the summer. Other than that, it is really affordable at £3.99. It will probably work for p
eople with combination skin but I wouldn't recommend it to people with really oily skin.

I really love this primer and I mix it with my Smashbox primer to keep my makeup last the whole day. This is great for people with oily skin as it keeps oil at bay. I also have found that when I use this under my BB cream, it makes it last longer and it applies better. I have had this product for about a year now and it still hasn't run out. This is quite cheap at £6.99 and I probably would buy this again. 

Hope you enjoyed reading :) 

please let me know in the comments if you would like to see more of these!
