A few weeks ago, I was invited to check out Rimmel London’s Spring 2010 collection at the Windsor Arms Hotel. As it turned out, the presentation was one of the most creative previews I’ve ever attended.
Attendees were given a tour of the three rooms at the hotel, each inspired by a Brit celebrity: Kate Middleton, Kate Moss, and Peaches Geldof. Each celebrity (and room) represented a certain part of the collection showcased. Future Mrs. Prince William was all about a clean fresh look – a no-makeup-makeup, featuring Match Perfection Concealer. Kate Moss’ room was littered with Coke cans (tee-hee), rock star tees, and glam eye makeup. And Peaches was all about glossy lips.
It was great to see such a creative collection preview, and having models, representing a celebrity in each room, wearing the makeup made it that much cooler!
At the end of the tour, I was given a box of goodies to try at home. And ever since then, I’ve been addicted to Rimmel’s concealer! It’s so light (the complete opposite of cakey), and yet it still manages to cover all of my blemishes. The eyeshadow palettes were also pretty amazing! The color stays on all day and all through the evening, with vivid pigments in each palette. I also really REALLY like the fact that they are nice and soft, and very easy to glide on.
And last, but definitely not least, the Lash Accelerator Mascara, which I included in my Christmas gift guide, is truly fantastic, especially considering the price! Not only a mascara, but a lash treatment that helps lashes grow longer and stronger. It takes a while to dry, but once it’s on, it really makes your eyes pop!
If you haven’t tried Rimmel in a while, I think you should give them a chance…the quality of their products definitely made me reconsider drugstore brands.
What about you? Where do you usually buy your makeup? Let me know in the comments, and I might send a little something from Rimmel your way!
