May Favourites from Rimmell


I hold my hands up and admit to having been a bit of make up snob over the years but that has changed over the past few months reading so many fabulous reviews and endorsements of 'drugstore' products. There was no reason for my snobbery other than I wasn't often making new beauty purchases (far from the case now!) as I had my favourites that I repeat purchased and they would tend to be from the higher end of the scale. Of course this didn't mean I'd often browse the beauty counter in Superdrugs or supermarkets in particular as throwing a mascara or lipstick into the shopping trolley during my weekly food shop would mean being able to hide the cost but I never knew what what was worth the purchase, especially as testing products in drugstore counters isn't the more enjoyable or hygienic of processes.

Both these products have done the usual rounds in blog circles of late, hence my adding them to my stash, so I won't go into long winded reviews and just share what I love about them.

First up is the Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer which I LOVE! I am using this daily and finding it a must have product for a girl like me who struggles with a regular sleeping pattern that is often clear to see on my face! Take a sweep of this concealer under the eyes and I instantly look like I've had a full 8 hours. I've just picked up the Wake Me Up Foundation although yet to try it but my friend who I recommended both products too has given it the thumbs up and we're both preaching about the Wake Me Up products to anyone that will listen.


I've been having a love affair with bright lipsticks after spending too long wearing Molton Browns now discontinued Nearly Nude Lipstick (see original post here). There have been a couple of new reds rotating in my make up bag and adding colour to my predominantly black wardrobe with Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Coral Queen making regular appearances when I want something a little more subtle with a pinky tone. Someone at work actually commented on how nice my lipstick looked when I was wearing this other day which is always a bonus! I suffer from dry lips and and this lives up to it's moisturising name and has a nice shine a bonus for someone like me who likes the look but not the texture of lipgloss.

I'd love to hear if you're using either of these products or what you think of Rimmel and/or drugstore products.

  1. I've been wearing Rimmel lipsticks for (ahem) almost 30 years. In fact I don't think I can have bought more than 3 or 4 lipsticks that weren't Rimmel in all that time and I didn't like any of those. Rimmel was as expensive as I could afford to go for lipstick and it has served me well.

  2. I'm not adverse to Rimmel at all but I have the Wake Me Up Concealer & the foundation as I bought them on a 3 for 2 on a whim with some mascara & I must say I didn't like any of the 3!
    I use concealer under my eyes & the concealer just doesn't do anything for me & I didn't like the way the foundation appeared on my skin either.
    My fav concealers to use are YSL Touche Éclat (of course as it is super fab) but also Maybelline Super Stay 24hr which I am super glad I found as it is perfect for me, great coverage & lasts long too & is of course cheaper than YSL!
    I've never tried a Rimmel lipstick since I was a teenager though so perhaps I should give them a try!
    love
