I recently picked up a few of the Rimmel Wonder Swipe 2 in 1 Liner to Shadows in a 3 for 2 deal and I’ve really been enjoying using them. These products can be used just as their name states; apply them as a liquid eyeliner or blend them out on to the lid for a sparkly eyeshadow look.
I think this product is a great way to experiment with your look, whether you choose to wear it as a bold, metallic liner along your lashline or if you like to smudge it out for a soft, gentle sparkle on the lid. The wide choice in shades (16 on the Rimmel site) also means you can mix it up however you choose.

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around BLUE, the fifth colour in the rainbow. I’ve not combined bright blue with hot pink before so I thought it would be a fun combination to try out. I think this is one of my favourite colour combinations from the series so far!
The Rainbow Series includes looks based around each of the colours of the rainbow. You can read about the series and view more posts here.
Tip: I’m using the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette for all of the looks but you can substitute in eyeshadows from any brand. The NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette in ‘Brights’ is a great dupe for the Urban Decay Full Spectrum and cheaper (£16 instead of £43). You can view the NYX Palette here.
When I was starting to wear make-up in my teens, Rimmel was my go-to brand as it was affordable and reasonably priced. However, I started to veer away from Rimmel as I got older and began trying out other make-up brands. The other day, though, I saw a YouTube collaboration video featuring Karima Kimmie and Michelle Crossan showcasing looks using the relatively new Rimmel ‘The Only 1’ Lipstick in the matte formulation, and that brought the brand back to my attention.
The lipstick that Michelle used – 120 – really caught my eye as it was such a beautiful, coral-red shade. What also really appealed to me was that they found the matte texture to be incredibly comfortable, moisturising and smooth to wear on the lips. I don’t tend to wear matte lipsticks much as I can find them very drying on the lips. So when I heard that these lipsticks felt so smooth on the lips and I saw this incredible colour, well, I just had to try them out! Boots also had a ‘2 for £10’ across the Rimmel make-up range, so I picked up another of ‘The Only 1’ lipsticks to try out, this time in their traditional (satin-like) formulation.
I have been looking for ideas for new posts and found this make-up tag on a beauty and lifestyle blog I came across recently (everythingmeli.com). I really enjoy reading this type of posts on other sites so I thought ‘why not post something like this here’? So here are my answers to the ‘Just for fun’ make-up tag questions. Hope you enjoy reading the post!
I’ve pasted the questions at the end of the post, so feel free to let me know your answers in the comments section below. I always love finding out about other people’s favourite products :o).
