Rimmel London Makeup Product – Review & Swatches

 

Hey guys! What’s up friends! So today’ I’m going to do two product reviews on  my rediscovered drugstore products. They’re the Glam’s Eyes Quad Eyeshadow and the ever popular Provocalips 16Hr Kissproof Lip Color by Rimmel London.

Starting off, I’ll start with my favorite product I love to talk about all the time. Rimmel Glam’s Eyes Eyeshadow Quad I’ve been loving since I started blogging and still reached for it whenever I’ve the chance. I talked about it on my old blog and if you like to check it out, here’s the link.

So, yes I’m wearing it again today. This is affordable and they’re such pretty quads. It’s very good and I really like it. I repurchase the same shade in Royal Tea and a new color collection in Smokey Purple. These are their two color quads I’ve been loving.

It has a good mix of shimmery and matte shadows in the quads palette. You get two mattes and two shimmery finish eyeshadows. The packaging is small and compact which makes it travel friendly and pattern on the shadows is a nice feature.

Royal Tea Color Swatch

What you’ll find from this quad (L-R): Intense metallic peach, matte butterscotch, copper brown and matte warm medium brown shades.

The drawback about these eyeshadows are yes, they’re matte but not very pigmented and a leave powdery finish especially the nude shadow (2nd on the left). I’ve basically have to dig it into the pan to get what you see on this swatch. Like always, the way I do a color swatch on my blog is by swatching the products on my bare hand using only one finger swipe. No primer and not on wet surface.

Smokey Purple Color Swatch

What you’ll find from this quad (L-R): Cool cream with the slightest purple tint, Dusty pink, Dusty dark purple and Dusty purple shades.

The darker colors definitely are more pigmented than the lighter colors and you will need to build up the color strength that you want. The good thing I like about these eyeshadows are what you see on the palette is what you get!

If you’re beginners and need help on, they’ve instructions behind as shown here which are easy to follow

Look at position of the chart: #3 and #4 are the mattes while #1 and #2 are the shimmery shadows.

They’re easy to work on with primer or eyeshadow base. Here’s the look I created recently. I wore it the whole time from morning till evening and it didn’t budge. I do like the staying power!

I’m very much on the fence with this product. There are so many good things about this product like the packaging, color selections and long wearing, but to the pigmentation I got to say I was a little let down. They’re not terribly bad at all, don’t get me wrong but I’ve seen other drugstore brands that performs much better in this category. They’re up to standard for the price and a good choice when on a budget!

Next product I’m going to talk about are these bad boys! Rimmel Provocalips is my new favourite lipstick. It may be the last lipstick I ever need (OK, that’s obviously a lie, but you get the idea – I’m obsessed).

On the website they claim that it is “Kiss proof , transfer proof, food proof, high impact endless color. No tight feeling or dry lips. Lips feel smooth and moisturized all day long.”

In Rimmel’s Provocalips lip color collection there are eight colors. I picked up three of the eight.

It is also unscented and comes with a Doe foot applicator sponge on both ends. Love this applicator. They’re so easy to apply products on and it glides on like a dream.

Top coat – Lock & Shine – Top Coat

This is my favorite part of the lip color actually. This is the other end of the applicator with top coat. It works to lock the color and shine from bulging or fading off.

Left to Right: Dare to Pink, I’ll Call You & Little Mink – Swatches

Out of the three swatches, I really couldn’t get Dare to Pink to work, as you can see from the swatches it just wouldn’t apply as nicely as I wanted it to.

Wearing 2 coats with a layer of top coat in these swatches

In this review, I road-tested 3 of the shades – Dare to Pink followed by I’ll Call You and then lastly Little Mink. For the test, I kissed the back of my hand and noticed there was no transfer. Once the 2nd layer was dry I then applied the top coat. I did the kiss test again and found no transfer of color.

The longevity of these is fabulous. They’re indeed transfer-proof while kissing, but on top of that, they stay remarkably intact while eating and drinking. The color did not budge at all after several hours and  still looks the same. I did another check at the end of the night, after 9-10 hours wear, the lip color still hold on like life. Although the clear gloss was no longer there, the lip color stayed in tact and my lips still felt moisturized.

Overall, I’m in love with those 3 shades and the formula – they’re so good for absentminded lipstick lovers like me. If you also love bold lips but don’t want to worry too much about reapplication, you’ll love these! I highly recommend it.

Comment and tell me which of those products you’d like me to review next!

Thanks so much for stopping by and read. Hope this mini haul is helpful. Until next time, take care. [muah]

  1. Matte lipsticks are tricky to get right but I think Rimmel has struck a nice balance between a true matte finish and a non-drying formulation.

  2. I just visited Rimmel London’s website. I like that the Rimmel Provocalips has a lot of shades available. I like the Wish Upon a Berry. It looks luxurious. I am quite intrigued with the description: ‘kiss-proof, transfer proof, and food proof’. I am eager to try. = )
