Rimmel London - Flawless Summer Face Makeup Review

I received products for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

A couple weeks ago I posted how the Rimmel Fresh, Flawless Summer Face is so simple by following easy steps. I've since received the products to try on my face. I'll be the first to say I've never been an expert at applying makeup. I know how to put makeup on my face but it never turns out model perfect. With that said, I do like to experiement with makeup and Rimmel London is a brand I've come to love.

To achieve the Rimmel Fresh, Flawless Summer Face, just follow follow the steps below:

· Begin with Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation ($8.99) a match so perfect, it's undetectable in any light! Light Perfecting radiance foundation, traceless coverage and perfectly flawless skin under any light. Lasts all day and has SPF 18 – perfect for summer!

· Follow by applying Rimmel London Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch ($4.99) to the apples of your cheeks. This lightweight, ultra blendable mousse formula gives an instant touch of radiance and illuminates the skin giving it a healthy summer glow.

· Then frame your eyes by giving your eyebrows definition using the Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil ($3.33) for a beautifully refined brow.

· Top it off with a favorite, Rimmel London ScandalEyes Mascara ($6.99), to achieve beautiful, voluptuous lashes!

The Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation matches my skin tone and provides all-over coverage. It's not thick or cakey and it covers up most my facial skin imperfections. The Rimmel London Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch comes in a small tube and I've come to realize that only a small amount is needed. It is shimmery with a hint of glitter that's more obvious if you put a lot on. I like how, when applied correctly, it makes me look more awake and gives a soft glow.

I used the Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil once for review purposes but won't be using it again. It gives eyebrows definition and would be a good makeup tool for those who define their eyebrows, but I don't use an eyebrow pencil on a normal basis. Rimmel London ScandalEyes Mascara opened my eyes to full, thick lashes. The mascara wand is bigger than other wands I'm accustomed to using but I like how noticeable my lashes were and how full they looked. The mascara didn't clump up or stick my lashes together.

Rimmel London is available at mass market retailers and drugstores nationwide including Walgreens, CVS, Target and Wal-Mart. Visit for store locations.
