Best Drugstore Beauty Products: Rimmel

I thought that this would be a fun series of posts to do as I love discovering new drugstore bargains and I always read other people's recommendations of products before I buy them. 

Rimmel eyeliner was one of the first items of makeup I ever bought and I still love their products now so I had to start this series of posts off with Rimmel! I really like how they continuously keep up to date with makeup trends but also stay faithful to the classics which I repurchase again and again. Read on to find out what my favourite Rimmel products are...

Stay Matte Pressed Powder

I've used this since it first came out and I can say with confidence that it's the best and most effective powder I own. I've tried more expensive powders which give similar results but this stands up to its rivals and at such a great price, why would you buy anything else?

Brow This Way Styling Gel

I didn't think I would get on with this when I started using it but after having tried it out through winter, I'm seriously impressed. I like the staying power and the easy applicator though I do always wipe the brush first with some tissue to control how much I use! I sometimes find it hard to find a colour similar to my eyebrows but this one is a perfect fit and takes no time at all.

Scandaleyes Shadow Stick

Anything that makes doing eye makeup easy and saves time is a winner for me. You don't have to use any brushes at all and the result looks just as good. You can mix shades or just use one on its own. My favourite is this one in Bluffing, I love it so much I have two in use at the moment!

Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

I had stopped using gel eyeliner a few years ago because it was so much easier just to use a felt liner but it would always rub off after a couple of house. Having picked up this one last month, I'm just sorry I hadn't discovered it sooner. It lasts all day (and I really mean all day) and I don't have to reapply eyeliner at lunchtime and in the afternoon!

Moisture Renew Lipstick

This Vintage Pink shade is so beautiful and people always want to know what it is whenever I wear it. I love that it isn't drying on the lips but doesn't look too shiny as it's not a style that works for me! A great lipstick for all seasons.

Exaggerate Lip Liner

Of all the Rimmel products, this is the one I have repurchased the most! East End Snob is such a flattering colour and can be worn alone or with lipstick over the top. I could rave about it for ages (and have done on the blog many times!) but I will say., if you buy one Rimmel product from this post, this should be it!

  5. I absolutely love using stay matte Rimmel powder too! Great picks x

  6. This is a great series, but sadly Rimmel isn't available in Germany anymore. They pulled out of the market a few years ago, which still leaves me sad.

    1. That's sad! Have you looked on They ship internationally :)

  7. I bought that gel liner for halloween and I love it. Specially if your new to the whole gel liner, it's very forgiving but giving you the staying power. I have to check out more by Rimmel, find that it gets over-looked in stores.

  25. Amazing brand! I love their lipsticks! The Vintage Pink is so pretty. Thanks for these reviews, very helpful


  26. These all look great! I love Rimmel

  27. I am currently using the Rimmel liquid eyeliner at the moment and I love it! Although it does smudge on me after a couple of hours as you have mentioned :) I remember that gel eyeliner was the only thing I used when I first started wearing makeup and now that you mentioned it though I am so tempted to try the Scandaleyes Gel Eyeliner! It might just save me from all the smudging! :D xx
