NEW Rimmel #Insta Makeup Collection : Review & Swatches

Rimmel Have done some amazing things recently it and if you are a regular reader of my blog you will have seen the Brow Boutique and the Super Gel Beach Ready Nail Polish Collection. Today I am sharing the love with the extended #Insta Makeup Collection which features some new selfie-ready items.
NEW Rimmel #Insta Makeup Collection
The first item I was drawn to is the #Insta Conceal & Correct. Now I am a user of Colour-correcting products and have a good selection of products in my stash, but none of them are on an easy to carry palette like this. This little trio palette has three colour correction shades.


A trio palette that contains the 3 ultimate shades for colour correction on the skin and if you use colour correcting shade then you will know that Peach is for dark circles, Green is for redness and blemishes and Violet is used on those dull and sallow tones. I use this palette after primer but before foundation and if im not wearing foundation then it works just as well with tinted moisturiser.

Staying with the trio palettes for the #Insta Conceal & Contour which is available in three shades - Light, Medium or dark. The three cream shades are then one highlighter, one concealer and one contour shade. 

I wasn't expecting to find the textures of these shades as nice as they are, but they do apply really nicely, for me the only downside is that the highlighter on the lightest palette, the one which suits my skintone the most, isn't as glowy as I am used to, infact it is more like a concealer, which is how I use it.

I love a good setting spray or a powder, im not fussy as to which it is as long as ive got one and it does the job. So #Insta Fix & Go 2 in 1 Primer and Setting Spray is essentially described within its name and does exactly what it is called. 

This is an oil-free formula that can be sprayed on underneath or over makeup to perfect and set, which is quite clever. If used prior to makeup application, the solution works to prime your complexion and if it is used to set makeup, it is a transparent spray which doesn't effect your makeup.  I haven't found this drying on the skin and my preferred method of use is after makeup as I think it has better staying power.

The product most people on my timelines seem to be talking about, myself included, is the #Insta Fix & Matte. This product is essentially a lightweight, pressed, translucent powder and it can be used to set foundation as a finishing step and for quick touch ups during the day

This isn't a powder which leaves my skin looking clogged and nor does it leave any white colour on the face, infact it actually contains a Doesn’t leave my skin feeling micro-fine pigment which gives a barely there finish.

The final items within the #Insta Makeup Collection are the Duo Contour Sticks and again these come in three shades - Light, dark and medium but until the palettes, I actually have used all three of these, mainly because I prefer the highlighter on both the dark and medium sticks. 

The sticks use a double-ended format and have the highlighter on one end and the contour on the other and for someone like me who has taken a while to grasp the whole contour concept, these sticks have helped me no end.

I have absolutely loved using these products, they work so well as a collection and are much better than I had originally given them credit for. If you want to get your hands on them, then they are currently on a 3 for 2 offer in Boots (here) and are so purse friendly they won't annoy your bank manager.

  18. It's a shame the packaging looks a little cheap, as the swatches are really good quality! The packaging has put me off a little as I don't think it's as #InstaWorthy as its name, but it's good that it's good quality product
