Rimmel getting you Picture Perfect Ready



I've always loved Rimmel - affordable and always on trend with products that work. I was chuffed to receive a bumper package of goodies* recently from Rimmel, all with the aim of getting you "selfie ready".

Now "selfies" - a necessary evil? Everyone is taking them now and it seems us Brits are shedding our usual embarrassment and cringing at taking photos of ourselves and it's now totally normal to see people of all ages pouting at their phone screen. I still feel particularly uncomfortable and you won't see many selfies from me (unless the light is really good and blurring!).

But who doesn't want to have a flawless, shine free, contoured face in real life and not just from a selfie filter? Here are the latest goodies from Rimmel:

Insta Fix & Matte face powder
This micro fine translucent powder will suit any skin tone and ensures your make up is set and stays shine free. Shame this powder compact doesn't come with a lid mirror and powder puff but that aside, this is a great setting powder.

Insta Conceal & Contour palettes, Insta Conceal & Correct palette
Three shades (light, medium and dark) are these cream Conceal and Contour palettes in a perfect handbag size with a handy little mirror. You get a cream highlight, concealer and contour so this is a great travel essential and would be your face base on holiday when you don't want or need to wear heavy foundation.
The colouring correct palette is another handy addition to your make up bag. There are three cream colours - peach for dark circles, green for redness, lavender for dull and sallow skin.

Insta Duo Contour Sticks
Another innovative handbag must have are the Duo Contour sticks. Prior to trying these sticks, I was petrified of contouring and thought it was only for Make Up Artists and 20 somethings. But these are foolproof and if I can use them - anyone can!
One end is a darker contour shade, which I apply to just below my cheek bone and then blend out. It leaves more of a bronzer type effect rather than an obvious contour line but I like it. The other end is a highlighter (both of these are creams) and this gives a subtle but noticeable glow to the high points of your cheeks.
I didn't think these sticks were for me but I was wrong.  Shades again are in light, medium and dark. (I use medium).

Insta Fix & Go spray
A dual purpose spray which can be used as either or both a primer and setting spray. If you need your make up to stay looking great all day, spray this after your moisturiser and before make up and then right at the end on to your fully made up face.

  1. I really like the idea of the contour sticks! I have one from Collection that I love, but these seem even better as they have the highlighter on also. Im not massively in to highlighters, other than for nights out, but love that you describe them as subtle. I will have a look out for them.

  2. The contour palettes look very nice ! I love the stick idea but I am afraid that it would be a bit orangy for me
