Spring 2012: Rimmel London.

This season, the hottest beauty look out of London is bright, beautiful emphasized eyes offset by a gorgeous natural flush. With high impact shadow shades, precision liner, ultra-plumping mascara and custom cheek color, Rimmel London’s latest spring collection has everything you need to play up your peepers, highlight your cheeks and get noticed this spring.

Eyeshadow in English Oak, ScandalEyes Mascara


New products include:

Volume Flash ScandalEyes Mascara – $6.99
Get scandalous lashes with the flexible new MaxDensity brush that’s longer, wider, denser and 50% bigger than Rimmel’s biggest brush featuring triple the collagen and keratin of other mascaras on the market. This is available in Black or Extreme Black.

I am pretty impressed with this mascara and was really excited to try it, as it was my first using a Rimmel London mascara.  After two coats, the formula does get a bit clumpy, but two coats is more than enough for me. My lashes are really thick, lengthened and beautifully bold and black while using. After wearing all day, I experienced no smudging, and very minimal flaking.

Glam’Eyes HD Eyeshadow – $5.99
The boldest eyeshadow pigments you’ve ever seen, packed with multi-reflective pigments, each intense, vibrant eyeshadow shade coats lids in dazzling color. The dual-use shadows work wet or dry, allowing you to customize your color. This mini palette is available in 8 shades: Black Cab, English Oak, Royal Blue, Green Park, English Rose, Purple Reign, Heart Of Gold, and True Union Jack.

English Oak is a beautiful myriad of warm brown shades. It is easy to get a beautiful brown makeup look when combining the shades, though getting the lighter shades on their own is not as easy as it looks, as there is only a very small bit of them, and most of my brushes pick up other shades too.  My favorite way to wear it is just by using a larger eyeshadow fluff brush and blend it all over the shadows together, and then gently sweep it all over my lid and crease.  It gives a beautiful daytime look. If I want more drama or depth, I use a crease brush and add in the darker shade just there.

Match Perfection 3 Tone Blush – $4.97 (at Walmart)
Wake up your face with a flush of customized natural cheek color. Featuring Smart-Tone technology that adapts to your unique skin tone and blue sapphire pigments for radiant true-to-you color. All you have to do i select your shades: Light, Light/Medium, Medium or Medium/Dark.

I didn't get to try this, but the idea is a good one. I love blending shades to get a more customized look. Hopefully I will find it in the store and give it a try. I am guessing I would use the Light/Medium, as the Light looks very pale, and I do like color on my cheeks.

Exaggerate Eye Liner – $6.00
This breakthrough liquid liner features an ultra-fine felt tip designed to absorb maximum liquid liner and deposit intense pigment for bold, exact application and majorly amplified eyes. This is only available in Black.

Rimmel London can be found in drugstores and mass merchandisers.
