Rimmel Colour Rush Long Lasting Intense Colour Balm 610 Sun-Kissed

Hi there! Today’s short review is about a lip product I’m using at the moment – Rimmel Colour Rush Long Lasting Intense Colour Balm 610 Sun-Kissed. I bought this one online, and I thought it would be a bit more nude-ish. However, this is essentially a bright coral shade. It’s not the greatest colour for me (redhead with green eyes).

I do like the formula – it’s deeply nourishing, but not slippery. So the colour stays put. I also love the cute candy vanilla flavour. It’s like Tic Tacs without the mint.

So whilst this isn’t the most flattering colour on me, I’m happy to continue to use this lip product. Rimmel Colour Rush Long Lasting Intense Colour Balm 610 Sun-Kissed is available online (but I’ve seen these at Poundland too). I paid 99p.

Rimmel Colour Rush Trio Eye Shadow 760 Elements

Hi there! Today’s post is about Rimmel Colour Rush Trio Eye Shadows 760 Elements. This product was in the half price bin at my local Poundworld store – so it was 50p only! This eyeshadow trio is a leftover item from a discontinued range, but it was sealed, so I was happy to pick it up. But – there’s a but…

I’ve now tried the product, and I’m pretty much underwhelmed. I’m sure you see why when you look at the swatches above. The eyeshadows felt soft and silky, but they weren’t very pigmented. They came out really pale and lacklustre. I think this would explain why this pretty-looking neutral eyeshadow trio ended up in a discount store.

I will definitely use these three eyeshadows, but since they’re so pale, I can only use them as highlighter (shade 1) or blending shades (shades 2 and 3). Anyway, I hope my other recent beauty bargains will not let me down.
