So first in the base products department we have two new products that I was excited to try. Truth be told, I've never ever tried a BB cream until now. If that isn't a beauty blogger sin I don't know what is. Inevitably I had no preconceived notions on what a good BB cream entailed, so I just tested this out without having any expectations. The Rimmel Radiance BB Cream* is marketed as a light weight base product that provides an overal radiance and lumiocisity to the skin, so if you are a fan of matte finishes that keep your oils at bay, then this one wouldn't be for you. However, it really does work well for a natural makeup look, and lasts decently. I think I understand the hype with BB creams now, it offers decent coverage without feeling like your wearing anything. One thing that I've also never tried are powdered foundations. However the Rimmel Lasting Finish Powder Foundation* truthfully didn't do it for me. It's far to drying for my skin, and if worn on top of my foundation as a setting powder it just comes out a little to cakey for my liking. I wouldn't call it bad, but just not suited for my skin whatsoever.
Rimmel have also come out with a new line of Oh My Gloss!* Lipglosses which promise 6 hour wear. However, I would say they don't last the whole six hours and definitely need a touch up but that is to be expected from lip glosses. However, Love Bug has become my every day nude staple- this girl is not afraid of a little bit of glitter! Along with the glosses is their new Scandaleyes X-Xtreme Volume and Length Mascara* which has a curved plastic wand that creates voluminous and separated lashes. It is very similar to Benfit's Roller Lash mascara in terms of the brush, and the overall finish of the lashes. If your wanting to try something that is very similar in affect, and for half the price then this one is great for that!
That is all for now. Hope you all have a lovely week! :)
