Currently Loving from Rimmel London

That RIMMEL LONDON has a fantastic array of products is undeniable, and their combination of high quality and affordability makes purchasing their makeup guilt-free. I thought that I would select a few of my current favorites to transition into the fall.
RIMMEL LONDON Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Moca 720 and Blush 110 ($5.49 for 0.21 oz. from UltaTarget and Walmart): Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour features a velvety smooth texture, opaque highly saturated hues and extraordinary staying power. They glide across the lips effortlessly, deposit color evenly and they neither bleed, nor feather. They have a lightweight velvety texture when applied, but once they set, they are budge and transfer-proof, and last all day. I don't find them drying, but if you have particularly dry lips, you might want to apply a light lip balm before application. These liquid matte lipstick formula has a distinct fragrance, but it does fade rather quickly.

The two colors that I have are:
Moca 720 is a neutral peachy nude.
Blush 110 is mid-tone nude dusty-rose.

According to Rimmel London,

Get ready for a bold, matte lip-look that stays on. Rimmel London introduces Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour, a new liquid lipstick with high-intensity colour, a velvety matte finish and a long-lasting, comfortable wear.

  • Long-wear matte colour that doesn’t feel dry
  • High-impact colour from the very first stroke
  • Lasts up to 12 hours
  • Kiss-proof, waterproof and touch-proof
  • Unbelievably comfortable, lightweight texture
RIMMEL LONDON Oh My Gloss! Oil Tint in Modern Pink ($5.49 for 0.21 oz. from UltaWalmart and Amazon): This lovely oil tint lip gloss, with its beautiful glossy finish, has a lightweight, non-sticky texture that is moisturizing and very comfortable on the lips. The doe-foot applicator applies the gloss evenly, and it neither migrates, nor does it bleed into lip lines. I get a couple of hours of wear-time per application, and repeated application throughout the day does not result in drying out my lips.  It has a light semi-floral scent that is not too heavily perfumed, and the scent fades soon upon application.

Modern Pink is a mid-tone sheer-leaning color that provides lips with a beautiful wash of color.

According to Rimmel London,

Rimmel London's Oh My Gloss! Oil Tint is packed with a harmonious blend of four precious oils, for unprecedented nourishing care and comfort with an ultra-glossy finish. Reinventing lip gloss as you know it the innovative tint-in-oil system fuses pure color pigments into lips for a refreshing juicy pop of color. Overtime OMG! Oil Tint's light tinting effect enhances the natural healthy color and glow of lips.

  • Ultra-light, non-greasy, non-sticky and non-drying
  • Formulated with a blend of 4 natural oils
RIMMEL LONDON The Only 1 Lipstick in Call the Shots 120 ($4.49-$6.99 from WalmartTarget, and Walgreens): This matte formula is neither too dry in texture, nor is it drying on the lips. It is smooth and emollient, lightly moisturizing, and while matte there is a very light sheen to the finish. It glides across the lips effortlessly, deposits color evenly and it does not migrate. It has a light floral fragrance, but it fades soon upon application.

Call the Shots is a richly saturated pink-kissed mid-tone red.

According to Rimmel London,

Give your lips a dazzling look with Rimmel The Only One Lipstick. This vibrant shade features gorgeous color that moisturizes with every application. The long lasting lipstick features deep pigments that burst with color, infused with hydrating moisturizers that leave lips soft and supple.

RIMMEL LONDON Moisture Renew Lipstick in Back to Fuchsia 310 ($5.47- $8.51 from Ulta, Walgreens, AmazonWalmart and Target): This is a very creamy and emollient lipstick that is lightweight, moisturizing and comfortable on the lips. It has a beautiful dimensional sheen and a silky smooth consistency, however its emollience lends itself to less longevity, and it does transfer. I get a couple of hours of wear-time before needing to reapply, and the light floral fragrance fades quickly.

Back to Fuchsia is a richly saturated bright fuchsia with a lovely sheen.

According to Rimmel London,

Rimmel's Moisture Renew Lipstick gives a brilliant burst of rich, pure color infused with a monsoon of creamy moisture. Ready to pamper your lips with luxuriously moisturized rich colour for a soft, cared-for and hydrated feel day after day?

  • Reduces lip dryness without compromising color
  • Contains vitamin A, C, and E
  • Ultra lightweight and provides great color at the same time

RIMMEL LONDON Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Stay On Lip Contouring Pencil in Mauve Shimmer 009 and Cherry Kiss 071 ($2.79-$5.50 from Ulta, Walgreens, Walmart and Amazon): This lip liner formula offers very long-lasting wear without any feathering or bleeding, and it is transfer proof. The formula is less emollient than the Exaggerate Full Color formula, but it neither tugs, nor pulls the lips. These pencils do require sharpening.

Mauve Shimmer 009 is a mid-tone shimmering mauve.
Cherry Kiss 071 is a mid-tone vampy berry.

According to Rimmel London,

Rimmel's Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Stay On Lip Liner Pencil is a long lasting lip liner that prevents your lip color from bleeding and feathering. This wooden lip pencil can be sharpened for precise application and is transfer resistant.

RIMMEL LONDON Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in Eastend Snob 063, Addiction 018, Pink A Punch 103, Call Me Crazy 104 and Under My Spell 105 ($6.99 from Ulta, Walgreens, Walmart and Amazon): Rimmel London Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner are soft-textured, non-tugging, automatic lip liners, "that deliver rich color and precise definition." This formula glides across the lips effortlessly, deposits color evenly, and it neither feathers, nor bleeds into lip lines. It offers several hours of wear-time on me, and it does not dry out my lips as some lip liners tend to do. Additionally, it is a full retractable twist-up pencil that doesn't require sharpening.

Eastend Snob 063 is a nude pink meets rosy-mauve shade.

Pink A Punch 103 is a coral-kissed pink.

RIMMEL LONDON ScandalEyes Eyeliner Kohl Kajal ($3.99 from Target,  Amazon, Walgreens and Walmart): I have always been a fan of eyeliner pencils, and sometimes it is the only makeup that I will wear. I love their fuss-free application, and that they facilitate framing and accenting eyes effortlessly and quickly. My eyes can be sensitive, and therefore I often find serious waterproof formulas too harsh, but that is not the case with this formula. ScandalEyes Eyeliner Kohl liners are creamy, they glide across the delicate skin effortlessly, deposit color evenly, and they do not tug or pull. I will note, however, that there is some variance in these four colors: Deep Blue 006 and Brown 003 are more emollient than Taupe 004 and Light Blue 008, but even the slightly drier consistency of the lighter shades does not result in tugging or pulling the skin. Once these liners set they do not budge, transfer or smear on me, but if you have very oily eyelids you may, or may not, need a primer.

According to Rimmel London,

Long lasting shocking color intensity with kohl Britania High intensity color for an instant color impact Ultra smooth & creamy formula that glides on easily Waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof, humidity-proof and scandal- proof. Dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested. Safe for sensitive eyes.

Taupe 004 is a light taupe.
Brown 003 is a deep, rich copper-kissed brown shimmer.
Deep Blue 006 is a deep midnight blue.
Light Blue 008 is a light, whitened blue.
Top to Bottom: Taupe 004, Brown 003, Deep Blue 006 and Light Blue 008

RIMMEL LONDON Shake It Fresh Clump Free Volume Mascara ($5.99 for 0.30 oz.from Ulta, and Target): This mascara is housed in a satisfying weighty tube that requires shaking to refresh the formula to its "original smoothness" in order to facilitate clump-free application. This novel approach, and the resultant texture, results in a slightly more wet consistency that resists clumping. Furthermore, the brush does an enviable job separating lashes and building volume and length.

According to Rimmel London,

Introducing Rimmel's Shake It Fresh Mascara with exclusive patented packaging designed to refresh your mascara with every shake. With a simple shake, the mascara will be immediately refreshed to its original ideal smoothness, so volume always stays perfectly clump-free. The brush helps to build volume without clumps, fanning out the lashes corner to corner with maximum separation making lashes look volumized, lengthened and defined.
  • Clump-free volume
  • Shaker system refreshes the formula to help prevent mascara from drying out
  • Ultra-smooth, clump-free volume from first to last use
  • Volume defining brush gives maximum lash separation from corner to corner
Directions: Shake the mascara vertically 3 to 5 times when needed. The mascara will be immediately refreshed to its original ideal smoothness, so volume always stays perfectly clump-free.
Rimmel London has effective and easy-to-use finishing products that correct, conceal, contour and enhance the complexion affordably.
Rimmel London Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in Nude Beige ($3.97-$5.49 for 0,49 oz. from Ulta, Target, Walmart and Amazon): If you have oily skin, or an active t-zone that requires a mattifying powder to absorb excessive oil production, then this one is a good choice. It offers a shine-free natural semi-matte finish that softens the appearance of pores and blurs imperfections.

According to Rimmel London,

Rimmel Stay Matte is an oil-absorbing pressed powder that leaves you with a flawless, shine-free complexion. Helps to minimize the appearance of large pores. Dermatologically tested. Available in 8 shades.

RIMMEL LONDON Insta Conceal & Contour in Light ($6.99 from Walmart and Target): Designed as a multitasking palette, there are three shades that can be used to conceal, contour and camouflage the skin. Each of the shades is creamy and emollient, and therefore neither tugs, nor pulls the skin. I tend to use this as an under eye concealer, and it blends easily, does not cake, pool or settle into pores or fine lines. Furthermore, one can easily blend the three colors to customize the shade for a perfect match.

According to Rimmel London,

Our multi-tasking conceal & contour palette is available in 3 creamy shades, that camouflages the different tones on your face and allows you to sculpt the angles. Creating a naturally flawless complexion and defined features.

Directions: Apply on top of foundation and blend into skin, creating a naturally flawless complexion and defined features.

Available in 3 shades  (Light, Medium and Dark).

Rimmel Insta Conceal and Correct ($6.99 from Target): If you are seeking a palette to conceal or neutralize discoloration from redness, dark circles, and dullness to reveal a more even complexion, then this palette is an effective and affordable find. The peach shade is formulated to neutralize under-eye dark circles, the green neutralizes redness and the lilac counteracts dullness. The texture has the same creamy emollience as the Insta Conceal & Contour palette, and therefore is similarly gentle on the skin. It neither tugs, nor pulls and it does not cake, pool or settle into pores or fine lines.

According to Rimmel London,

Addresses the different skin tones & imperfections you want to conceal for a naturally flawless complexion.
  • Peach neutralizes dark circles
  • Green covers redness on the skin
  • Lilac cancels out dullness
Rimmel London InstaFlawless Perfecting Radiant Skin Tint ($6.99 from UltaTarget and Walgreens): Radiant Skin Tint provides the skin with a natural glow that can be worn under makeup or alone. It blurs imperfections, reduces the appearance of pores and brightens the skin. Under makeup it functions as a moisturizing primer that extends the wear of foundation, or it can be used in lieu of foundation. The formula is lightweight and comfortable on the skin, and the finish is very flattering. It does have a light fragrance, but it does fade quickly.

According to Rimmel,

A perfecting, radiant skin tint that can be worn alone for a radiant glow or under makeup to extend the wear.

  • Perfecting, radiant skin tint for a natural looking glow
  • SPF 15
  • 24HR moisturization

  1. Oh my, I'm overwhelmed with all this cool stuff from Rimmel. I was just at Ulta picking up something from the 21 Days event, and I had a $3.50 off $15 coupon but couldn't think of anything I needed. Next time I go back, I will pick up that cool green mascara and the deep navy eyeliner. The Only 1 lipstick sounds like a winner for me too! Great reviews and swatches!

    1. Rimmel really is amazing, and it's hard to believe that you can get this quality so affordably! It's definitely worth using your Ulta coupon on some Rimmel London!

  2. Oops, I goofed. It seems the shakable mascara comes in several shades of black, not green like I thought. Oh well, still sounds interesting!

    1. Yes, this is black, but green could be pretty cool!

  3. Wow, what a terrific line up from Rimmel. I love their lipliners especially Mauve Shimmer since it's great for almost all the lipsticks I like.

    1. I agree, Marcia! They really have so many amazing products! YES!!! Mauve Shimmer is a favorite of mine as well, and for the very same reason!

  4. Those lipsticks look gorgeous on your swatches. Will check them out

  5. I like matte lipsticks that aren't drying, so I might try some of these lippies.

    1. Me too, and these are really fantastic and non-drying!

  6. Wow, Rimmel has been busy! I'm going to have to look for the matte lipstick and lip oil.

    1. Indeed they have been, Bailey! Yes, the matte lipstick and lip oil formulas are great, and definitely worth checking out!
