How are you all doing? It’s a NEW week and my goodness days are flying by!! I am so excited to share with you this blog post today, it’s about one of my favourite drugstore brands and a brand that I have been using for quite a while now – Rimmel London.
I have been trying these out for a week now. I personally do not have much practice when it comes to contouring with cream products, but I tried. And I hope to keep trying to get better at contouring!
INSTA CONCEAL & CONTOUR PALETTE
We are first going to start talking about this Conceal and Contour Palette. It comes with 3 shades – a concealer, a contour shade and a highlight shade. At the back of the palette, it gives you instructions on where to apply the three shades – very helpful!
This palette will help you sculpt and create a naturally flawless complexion with defined features. The best way to use this product is after you prime and apply foundation.
I followed the instructions of where to apply the 3 shades –
This product comes in 3 shades – Light, Medium and Dark. The one I have is the medium. At first I was sort of worried because being in Stirling, my Maltese complexion has gone – not that I was tanned before but I have always been on the fair side. But now I am very fair. But when blending out those shades, they really blended out well and I liked the finished look.
The highlight shade is very sheer and it isn’t that shiny highlight you would want. I liked the contour shade the most even though the concealer did blend out nicely under my eyes and once I set it with powder it did not crease and lasted all day!
INSTA DUO CONTOUR STICK
The second product I will be writing about today is this new Duo Contour Stick which comes with a contour shade on one side and a highlight on the other. I prefer this highlight shade to the one in the palette.
This product is perfect for contouring your cheekbones, nose and cupid bow. It provides for an easy application and defines facial features. I loved applying this to my skin, it is very creamy. The contour stick again comes in 3 shades – Light, Medium and Dark and I have the medium one. I applied this after I applied the shades from the previous palette but I have also used it on its own after applying foundation. I love how easy it was to apply the product and I prefer using this kind of cream contour product rather than a powder contour.
I like how they blend into the skin without any trouble and the highlight is very sheer but brighter than the one I mentioned above. It’s a perfect highlight for an everyday makeup tutorial.
And that was my review on these 2 brand new face products from Rimmel London!
Have you tried either one of the product? What did you think of them? Let me know in the comments down below!!
Have a lovely week!!
