Drugstore Beauty: Rimmel London



By Samara DiGiovanna

Rimmel London is hands down one of my top favorite drugstore brands of makeup. With top quality products, rivaling top department store brands, at drug store prices, Rimmel’s products are tough to beat.

I’ve been a fan of their face primer ever since it came out, their lipstick “Airy Fairy” has been a staple in my purse and makeup drawer, and my go to foundation is their Lasting Stay foundation, number 100. Not to mention, I have found their nail polishes to be some of the best out there, in a gorgeous variety of shades, easy to apply, and amazing staying power; with high shine and no chips for at least 5 days.
Needless to say, I was thrilled when I found out I’d be getting the opportunity to review beauty products from Rimmel.
Rimmel’s Scandaleyes Eyeshadow pencils glide on smooth and stay on all day without smearing or ending up in the creases of your eyes! I actually use these “eyeshadow” pencils as eyeliner because it goes on so nicely! Coming in a variety of colors, this is a perfect way to add a pop of color to your eyes without going over the top. Try the purple shade as a liner for brown or hazel eyes, or the silver or green for blue eyes.

Lasting Finish Matte Lipsticks by Kate Moss is a new line of matte lipsticks from Rimmel. As I mentioned before, “Airy Fairy” is one of my staple lipsticks that I carry everywhere and I’ve been using this new line quite a bit now too. Coming in a beautiful array of colors, there is something to compliment everyone’s skin tone. Goes on smooth and lasts for hours.



Rimmel London’s BB Cream is a 9 in 1 skin perfecting makeup. If you haven’t tried a BB cream yet, this is the one to try. I’ve been grabbing this most mornings instead of my usual foundation. Not only does it brighten and smooth your skin, it also offers great coverage (I’d say it’s a happy medium between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation) and helps even out your skin tone. Where has this been all my life??

Next time you are at the drugstore, pick this product up. You won’t be disappointed!
