All Rimmel FOTD - Marks outta 10 for the products

Happy Friday all!! Had a nice week so far? Mine has been pretty dreadful so I’m hoping for a great – and extremely relaxing! –weekend :)

I was doing my makeup during the week and noticed that I’d used the same brand for my foundation, concealer and eye shadow… Figured it’d be interesting to try finishing the whole look with only that 1 brand to see how it turned out. I’ve been doing it every morning and it’s actually got me using makeup that I haven’t even looked at since I bought it!

Generally I use the same old products fairly frequently cos if I’m in a rush (which is most of the time) I know they get the job done with minimal fuss. I’m gonna keep up this one-brand-makeup-look for a while and figured I’d let you know how I’ve been getting on with some of the products
Foundation: Stay Matte Foundation in true ivory. Like this a lot but it’s not quite as long wearing now that my skin is a tad oily 7/10

Concealer: Stay Matte dual action concealer in ivory. Didn’t expect much from this when I bought it but it blends better than most stick concealers I’ve tried and is pretty good at colour correcting problem areas 8.5/10

Powder: Clear Complexion: Love this powder and have been using it for years. Does a great job of absorbing excess oil and doesn’t leave the skin looking cakey 9/10

Blush: Lasting Finish blush in winter glow. Still not completely won over by this. It’s definitely not the worst product I’ve ever tried but it’s mediocre and not something I intend to wear often. There are far too many better blushes available 5/10
Eyeshadow: Glam Eyes quad in bold behaviour. Meh. Lets just say the colours look much better in the pan that on my lids 5/10

Eye liner: Exaggerate eye liner in black. Absolutely brilliant. Incredibly easy to use, lasts ages, is a proper black as opposed to a washed out grey black so I really couldn’t fault this 10/10

Mascara: 1-2-3 mascara in black. Not keen on this at all. Gonna do a full review soon cos I’d like to rant about why it’s a bit rubbish 4/10

Eye liner: Exaggerate liner in Ocean. Works fantastically well and is a really nice change from black and navy. The texture is fairly creamy so it’s easy to apply and can be smudged but also stays put all day 8/10

Lips: Infinite Colour in wear it well. Every time I use this I expect it to work wonders but I’m always left liking it a little bit less. Too drying on the lips and the gloss coat needs to be re-applied every 5 minutes (I wish I was exaggerating) to keep my lips from feeling all dry and cracked 3/10

Thanks for stopping by. See you again soon ♥
