If you are looking for good make-up but you don't want to spend a fortune, rimmel is a good choice. Rimmel cosmetics are widely known for their value for money. Since we're on the subject of low-cost cosmetics, do not get your hopes up for excellent quality.
On the other hand, if you want to try one of the products of this or similar company,my advice would be to start looking for products that do not have direct contact with your skin , such as primers, powders etc. especially if you have irritable skin, problems with acne , or other skin conditions.
I chose to test the following products:
Lipstick Tantrum 164
Lipstick Alarm 170
Mascara Scandaleyes Retro Glam
Eye Liner Waterproof Exaggerate
Hide The Blemish Concealer Soft Honey 103
Blush Pink Rose
The lipsticks are so similar to each other so practically it's as if I bought the same lipstick twice. Both colours are bright red as shown in the pictures above. Regarding the quality, it seems likely that you will not avoid stupid stains on your front teeth but somehow it seems to be long lasting.
The mascara is pretty good with an incredible brush to suffuse the product evenly, even to the bottom lashes . Very good choice I think.
Eyeliner claims to be waterproof and it perfectly is. It has a medium sized brush so you get a medium size line. It's pretty black which I adore.
Concealer: Ensure that you got the right colour because if you want to cover the dark circles under the eye area, the wrong choice of colour can beproven ineffective. I chose "soft honey" because it seemed closer to the shade of white skin . It comes in ivory too but this tone comes out as a white - gray shade and I was not sure it would complement my skin tone. Usually, I have no problems with dark circles so I wear concealer just to illuminate the area beneath the eyes and this product work well for that.
Last but not least, the blush is amazing. It perfectly suits brighter skin tones.
