=Rimmel London Multi-Tonal Powder Blush=
This is one of my less successful experiments in terms of changing my make up purchases over the last couple of years.
What I was drawn to with this was it was a 3 in 1 blusher, and that you can blend the colours to suit your skin tine and highlight the cheekbones as you may want to do or not.
When I got mine there was 4 shades in the range, they were named after the seasons, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, the one that I choose was the Summer shade which is also known as Summer Fever (002)
The blusher comes in a small black container, this has a clear flip up lid, so you can see what the colours are like through the lid. Just under the blusher, there us a small black and silver coloured applicator brush.
The Rimmel name is displayed in the top if the lid, this is in large white letters, and in the bottom of the product, there is the colour, shade, the net weight which is 4.5grams, the shelf life, which I was impressed with as this was 30 months, as well as contact information for the brand.
As this is a 3 shade blusher, the colours all blend together, and the summer shade is that of an peachy, come earthy tones.
1st - Light peach colour
2nd - Pale shimmer brown
3rd - Dark browns/peach colour (more like a soil colour)
I first tried using the brush that came with the blusher, but it seemed to end up with a stripy tone and then when I tried to blend the colours on my skin, I just looked a mess.
Plan 2 - I used my own brush, and tried to get an equal amount of blusher, I ended up patting the brush on the lid to get the colours to mix for me, before I applied, but this was not 100% successful, but better than the first time I had tried.
=Tried Using individually=
That was a disaster, as the colours are so close together that there was no way of getting just the one colour.
=Try and Try again=
I really liked the colours they were a mix of shimmer and a dark deep colour, they were highly pigmented and good quality, but unfortunately for me, I could just not get the hang of this 3 in 1 blusher.
=Would I recommend=
I would not recommend this product, as I just could not get the hang of it, I dare say it is a good product, but not for me, and based on my experience, I can only give it a 3/5, which is one for each of the colours.
=Price and Availability=
I don't recall exactly how much I paid for it, it would have been around £5 mark, I purchased mine from Boots, but I never went back for a 2nd purchase.
I have quite a few Rimmel products in my make up bag and this is one of them. It is a 3 in 1 blusher that that can be blended to suit your skin tone and highlights the cheekbones, giving a subtle natural glow. The are 4 different shades available in the range that represent each season (spring, summer, autumn and winter) and the one that I am reviewing today is the shade summer fever (002)
The product comes in a small plastic black pan with a clear plastic flip up lid on the top so you can easily see the 3 colours displayed inside it. Directly underneath the blush is a small black and silver application brush to apply the product. The Rimmel brand logo is displayed on the front of the lid in large white letters. On the back it tells you the colour and shade number, the net weight (4.5g) the shelf life (30 months) and some contact information for the brand.
I love the colours in this blush. They are natural earthy tones. The first shade is a light matte peachy colour. The middle one is light shimmery brown and the third one is a darker matte colour. The colours are well pigmented and really soft and silky which makes them glide easily onto the skin. The colours can be blended to suit your own skin tone. To apply simply flip up the plastic lid and use the brush applicator to sweep over the colours and apply onto the cheekbones to highlight and give a subtle glow. I just give one equal sweep with my brush over all 3 shades. I use my own make up brush to do this as I find the one that came with it is a bit small and doesn't blend very well but this is just my own preference. I don't use the colours individually due to the fact that they are so close together and quite slim it would be a bit too fiddly to do.
- Variety of shades available
- Colour can be blended to suit skin tone
- Good pigmented colours
- Soft and silky enables easy application
- Gives a natural subtle healthy glow
- Long shelf life (30 months)
Price and availability.
I purchased this product over a year ago from Boots but it is not currently available from their website. It can be easily purchased from on line beauty sites including Amazon, Ebay and Beautybits (www.beautybits.co.uk) and usually retails between £2.49-£5.99.
As I mentioned earlier there are 4 different shades available. These are: Summer fever, Spring flower, Winter Glow and Autumn catwalk.
I really like this blush, it gives a natural glow to my skin and is great for summer. 5 stars.
This is one of my favourite blushers as it is really three in one.
The colours go from a light pink, a shimmery pink and a dark pink but I have found that the dark pink looks best on my fair skin.
This blusher set is good because it can be both subtle and dramatic. I tend to use the darker pink everyday with a mixture of the darker pink and the shimmery pink for evenings.
It is very easy to apply as it comes with an applicator but it is very small so I don't tend to use that as I would rather use a large blusher brush. I do think the mini brush comes in handy though to use when you are out if you don't want to carry a large brush around with you.
The texture of this blusher is nice and silky and not heavy when applied to the skin and creates a natural looking blush.
I think this trio is perfect and is the first that I have tried but is much better than having to buy three different blushers and gives the opportunity to try out different looks.
I think I paid about £3.50 for this which I think is a good price as most single blushers I have bought have been about this price. It is lasting quite well but the dark pink I use most often is running out quicker.
Being very pale blusher is something I have to be very careful with if I don't want to look like a clown. I had previously used a rimmel's single blusher which was a great colour but I couldn't see this in the shop and I was desperate having totally run out.
I saw this one and thought it would be great as the colours look pale and you get the choice of what tone you want or mixing them togethor to create a different look.
I have to say the colours were not quite what I expected when on. The palest one I thought would ne nice and subtle but actually looks very pink on my cheeks. I would say the darker tone is actually the best for me providing I use it sparingly. First time I applied as i did with my old blusher and I have very rosy cheeks indeed. The middle colour is glittery and I find this great to combine with one of the others to add some sparkle on a night out.
Priced at less than a fiver I think this is great value for money and the little brush is really very handy. The packaging is compact so great to take in your handbag if you need a touch up.
Overall I would recommened this product and it is something I would buy again, I would just prefer perhaps just a slightly lighter colour for my skin tone.
Blusher is makeup product that I only started using about a year ago, despite having used makeup since I was 14 (7 years ago).
It is a product that, alongside lipstick, I had little need for and was to be used for dramatic-effect and big nights out as opposed to day-to-day life.
However, about a year ago I brought a new mobile phone, and as part of the package deal it came with free makeup. The blusher was the brand 'Benefit' which I hadn't heard of, but the packaging was cute. I used it one day to see how it looked, and since then I've always used blusher. That product ran out fairly quickly, so I soon had to buy another one.
How did I choose this blush? From it's price, packaging and useability.
I picked this Rimmel blush up for £3.49. I thought this was a fairly expected price for blush - not too expensive but not too cheap.
It's available in all major supermarkets (Asda/Tesco) and drugstores (Boots/Superdrug) around the country.
I'm attracted to compact products. I need them to be able to fit in my makeup bag alongside my other million makeup products. It needs to be small enough to fit into a going-out bag (which has minimal spare room), but be big enough to last me at least a couple of months so I don't have to keep replacing.
The packaging of this Rimmel blush is fairly small, in sleek casing. The base is black, with the lid see-through so you can see the colours underneath.
The case comes with its' own applicator (perfect - now I don't need to carry additional brushes around), which is a small brush, just big enough to allow a sweeping motion across your cheeks.
Out of all the makeup products which could go wrong, I'd say blusher is a fairly safe bet. You can really go wrong with it, unless of course you become allergic and your face swells up - not good.
This blusher has 3 tones within one case, and they all sit beside each other. There is no seperator between them, therefore once you start using this product the colours do tend to blend in with each other. I've been using this blusher for about 3 months now and already two colours have completely merged together so it looks like there are only 2 tones left in this blusher case now. That is no problem to me though - if anything it's quite nice when they blend in as you have a richer colour. The colours range from light pink to dark pink. I tend to use the darker end of the palette as it looks nicer on my fair skin.
The colour on my skin looks very pretty - it doesn't look over the top and just adds to my facial features. Blusher has a great way of making you look like you have cheekbones, doesn't it!
Overall, I would definitely recommend this product. It is subtle and pretty once applied on skin, looks nice in the casing so you wouldn't be ashamed of having it in your makeup bag, and the packaging is small enough to take out of the house in a small bag. Even better, I find this blusher lasts ages, probably down to the fact that I don't apply very much as you don't need loads to get a nice red/pinky shimmer.
I bought this item first a year or so ago and from then on I have been buying it every time I go to Boots.
It costs around £3 and can be purchased from Boots, Superdrug and I have now noticed that they have also started to sell it in some supermarkets.
It is in a little compact that comes with a tiny blusher brush, however I find this very hard to use and therefore don't use it. There are three shades that simply run from light pink to dark pink.
The busher itself is very compacted and when first used can be quite hard to get on the brush. I swirl it over the blusher to get a nice 'mix' if all three colours and once I have done this I brush it over my cheeks.
After doing this just once or twice the colour begins to appear, it is also ever so slightly shimmery. The colour looks very natural and it also quite subtle which is nice so that you don't look like a russian doll!
Once fully applied the colour brings out the cheek bones and gives a lovely, healthy glow to the overall face.
I really like this blusher as it gives a very natural look and at a good price, however I do finf it runs out quite quickly which is a shame!
Rimmel London's 3 in 1 Pressed Powder Blush Is A Great Way To Create Different Looks All In One Affordable Product.
The Blusher Is Available In 4 Different Colour Varieties (One For Each Season):
001 Spring Flower
002 Summer Fever
003 Autumn Catwalk
004 Winter Glow
(I Have Only Used Autumn Catwalk/Winter Glow So Far.)
Each Blusher contains three different shades which can be used individually depending on what look you are aiming to achieve or you can sweep the brush across all three colours to create your own custom shade of blusher.
Before purchasing this product i owned several different blushers in a variety of shades in order to create different looks eg: a darker blush for a night time look, more natural/pinky colour for daytime or a more orange tone to use as a bronzing blush. So when i saw all three of these shades in one product i was shocked it had taken someone this long to think of it!!!
The powdered blush comes with a mini applicator brush which quite frankly is awful, its nearly impossible to apply the blusher with it without looking like a little girl using her moms make-up so i would definitley recommend purchasing a full size blusher brush to apply with. It would also be alot better if the blusher came in a compact with a mirror as it does fade a little during the day and may need re-applying whilst on the go.
Rimmel London 3 in 1 Powder Blush is available from most chemists such as Boots and Superdrug and usually costs £4.99 (and i know i say this in nearly every reveiw but it really is worth waiting for a 3 for 2 offer in Boots as you can save LOADS of money this way in the long run.)
This is a multi tonal powder blusher with 3 shades in the same pot to achieve different looks in one product. There are four pots of different shades available giving a range to suit everyone. However, I have only tried the one shown above so I'm not entirely sure about the darker shades available.
You can use the shades altogether by sweeping the surface for a healthy glow or select the shade/s you want to use to achieve the look your after to personalise your shade. Rather than the average blusher where your stuck with one matt shade. This offers 3, 1 shimmery, 2 of different colours one pale the other darker.
The Pot itself is actually quite small and I believe I paid 3 pounds for mine. It does come with a small applicator brush, but I have found this useless unless you have a face the size of a saucer. Instead a bigger brush is better for application, to ensure you don't look like you have applied war paint!!!! LOL. The look it provides is quite natural though try not to use to much of ther shimmery stuff if you can, as this can highlight the wrong areas and this is where the smaller brush comes in handy to apply to tops of cheek bones and where ever else you may want to highlight.
During the average day this product stays on well, and I even went to a BBQ earlier on this week where it was extremely hot and it still stayed in place. So staying power is definitely good.
Overall I like this product for the staying power, the finished look it provides and the shade I use. However, shame about the size of the pot and the small brush!! I can't comment on how long the product will last as I've only had it for a month, but seems to be lasting me well I hope!!!
Rimmel London Multi-Tonal Powder is amazing for a nice healthy blush on your cheeks for a final step in your make up routine! I have only just started to use this tonal blusher and I have it in shades spring flower and winter its already one of my most used powders this summer and I really reccomend the powder to anyone wanting a healthy pink glow on their face. This blusher is a
Multi-Tonal Powder so it gives a better look when its on. Rather than a boring one tone look that just sticks its the one area this one blends so beautifully over the cheek bone area and as it goes on it has a small shimmer to really give you a sun kissed look. My new look for this summer is right here in this small blusher! I got mine for £2.99 from boot chemist and you can pick it up on the companys website but I prefer boot price.
The blusher is only small not as big as it looks in the picture but you do get a good amount and lots of use out of it! After you have finished your bronzer I would say sweep a blush of this across your cheeks bones as it shows off your best features where ever they are on the face. I have not so good cheek bone but this stuff brings them out and I have a contour look now.
Instead of just piling on loads of bronzer to look sunkissed this is better so try this one. The packaging is very attractive to the eye as it has rimmels london look symbol on the front inside the power itself which is a clever little catch. It makes the blush look more expensive I think. The compact is black with large words saying rimmel on the front and it's easy to open you just pop the lid up. Its nice to keep in your handbag and you dont even need to use much! I only use it once a day and thats enough for all day. Its perfect for a health 3 shades in one look with its gorgeous multi tonal powder.
I will be buying this again and trying the new shades but I wouldnt pay anythin over 4 pounds for this make up only because of its size which I think could possibly be bigger.
I give it still a 5 out of 5 for staying powder and beautiful glow.
Being really pale a blusher is a staple item for my make-up bag so I've tried loads of different ones. What first drew me to this one was the fact that it had 3 different shades of pink so I could vary my look whenever I wanted. After using it for a while now I can't say that I've been too impressed with it. I think its more suitable for younger girls or teens more than anyone mostly due to the amount of glitter thats in it. I don't get what the obsession is with putting glitter into every make-up product out there, it just makes it look cheap and nasty.
*Not too expensive* I suppose getting 3 blusher colours for under £5 is pretty good even if the quality of them is nothing to write home about
*Glitter!!* This is not a product that looks natural when applied to the skin mainly due to all the glitter in it. In clear daylight it is really obvious and it comes across as being really cheap and nasty because of this. Not a product to use if you want a natural glow to your skin.
*Rubbish Brush* The brush you're supplied with is really rubbish. I mean I don't expect it to be a proffessional brush or anything like that but this is beyond useless. It won't let you blend it into your skin at all meaning you have a little bit sitting obviously on top of your skin.
*Won't blend anyway* I said above that the brush doesn't help to blend the product into the skin, but even if you used a proffessional brush which I have in the past, it is still useless at blending into the skin.
*Slightly Orange* When I've applied it to my skin it seems to go orange after a couple of minutes which is really annoying and strange.
Rimmel London Multi Tonal 3 in 1 Powdered Blusher.............
I used to always buy bronzer and use this like you would a blusher and until a year or so ago blusher wasn't something I would even buy. However since I have started using blusher I can't believe the difference it has made in the overall perkiness of my face and I as yet I haven't looked back.
I tried a few different blushers before finding this one and sticking to it. I have continued to buy this Rimmel 3 in 1 blusher purely for the fact that it is a cheap and affordable price whilst being a good match for my skin tones. This is a fairly new addition to the Rimmel product range as the one I currently has still has a "New" sticker on the front case.
** Price and Availability**
I paid £4.99 pence for this 4.5 gram pot of blusher from Boots and I have once or twice got it on a special deal. They often have a 3 for 2 offer and this is where I will always stock up as it is a product I know I am sure to use. I have also bought one for my friend for her birthday (she did request make-up) and she is now a big fan of this blusher too.
It is, as I say, available from Boots and I have also seen it for sale in Superdrug and since doing this review I have found brand new ones on eBay for a really cheap price which may be worth taking a little look at! Compared to other blushers of this size the price is pretty reasonable for the actual quality you get so I feel it is quite a good purchase.
**Look and Design**
As with most of the Rimmel products this 3 in 1 blusher looks like a good piece of make-up. It doesn't scream expensive but it feels modern, trendy and practical. It has a nice clear lid which is hinged so that it can be opened up easily without any chance of loosing the lid. The clear plastic lid will get a bit powdery from time to time but you are still able to see the product that is held underneath.
The design of the packaging is good with a nice feel and it is simple to use. The back of the pot only gives very slight information about the product with no ingredients or directions on how to use it. It states the shade of the blusher, the weight, the fact that it should only be kept for 30 months after first using and then the contact address for Rimmel in London.
The blusher itself is made up of three different shades of pink ranging from a very light pink on the left, to a middle shade which is slightly darker and then the darkest shade of pink is on the right hand side. Under the blusher section there is a small blusher brush which is included with the product this has a black plastic handle and soft black bristles.
**General Use of Product**
The blusher is easy to use if you get your own blusher brush and steer away from the small and useless brush that they always feel they have to give you with these sorts of products. The brush that comes with it is far too small and thin to be of any use at all so I will always get out my big and chunky blusher brush which seems to do the job perfectly.
I have bought the lightest shade of this 3 in 1 Rimmel blusher which is called Spring Flower 001. There are about three different shades to choose from and the second one is made up of more wood colours and the third feel is perfect for summer and looks to be far more bronzing than anything else. I find this light shade of pink perfect for the winter as my skin is not as tanned.
There is no smell or aroma at all to this blusher which for me a good thing and not only does it mean they have not added extra perfumes but also that it doesn't interfere with my own perfumes as I can't stand having too many products that I use having a strong smell as they all seem to mingle together and crate an overpowering old lady smell! (In my opinion)
Moving my brush backwards and forwards across the three sections of the blusher I make sure I get all three of the different pink shades on my brush. I think the different shades work well together in giving a more natural looking tone to the skin.
The blusher comes away a good amount onto the blusher brush but not so much that you have to blow off tons of excess powder. I apply with upward strokes across my cheekbones trying to make a nice flushed and healthy look.
After applying a few strokes the look is complete and all that is needed is a couple of brushes on each cheek and a little amount of the blusher seems to give the desired effect for me. The pink tones work well at making me look rather healthy and the slight shimmer that there is to this blusher again gives a good look on my skin.
For me this is the right shade of pink and the three tones that are supplied work well to give a little bit more depth to the blush instead of just a one block colour.
The blusher colouring looks good and lasts a good amount of time on my face. I do not over apply the blusher and a normal application would pretty much last till dinner time before looking completely worn off. This for me has a good staying power but of course if I rub my face a lot then this will change things and the blusher will not be so visible.
The blusher is easily removed with either facial wipes or good old fashioned soap. It leaves no stain or marks or either the skin or my nice white flannels as it washes away well without any problems.
I rate this Rimmel 3 in 1 blusher highly and think a 5 out of 5 star rating is in order as there are not any blushers that I have tried that are better than this one. If I had to find any faults at all it would be with the fact that when you get down to the dregs you are only left with the two shades of pink on the outside as the middle shade will tend to get used up first. This however is no real problem as there are not many applications left once it gets to this stage.
I think this is a very good price for the amount of blusher you get and the quality that comes along with it. It lasts a good month or so and that is even with applying it every day. It has a good staying power throughout the day and looks good from application to removal. The pink shades are perfect for me and the other shades that Rimmel have in this product range should be pleasing to many other people. The design is good and it is easy to use. Generally this is a really good product that I am happy to be buying on a regular basis. I am happy to give it an exceptionally high recommendation and will not be looking for another blusher any time time soon.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Being a bit of a beauty snob I have to say I wouldnt normally buy Rimmel cosmetics, however when running an errand to stock up my mums make up bag (whos a self confessed Rimmel & Maybelline addict) this caught my eye.
I have wanted to try a different shade of blusher for a long time, but because I usually spend approx £20 on Mac or Benefit products I wouldnt have taken the plunge without having the assistant try it on me first. However at a reasonable £3.99 ( on offer from £4.99) I thought what the hell and picked a pallette completely different to my usual coral/bronze.
I opted for Spring Flower which was one of 4 different trios of shades. It includes pinky/peachy tones and thought would compliment my skin tone. I was a bit apprehensive as my subjective view on main stream brands left me thinking I would end up looking like a cross between a clown and oompa loompa, however after gently applying (less is more when your worried about looking overly flushed) I was more than pleased with the result.
I have to admit it felt a lot dryer on my skin than my usual Benefit powder, but for the price I think it more than exceeded the expectations I had. The trio of colours blend really well and leave quite a subtle shade.
The packaging is quite bland, basic black and comes with a small blusher brush which I found to be useless as its too small and stiff ;) But to be honest I find the same problem with Benefits brushes so its nothing to do with the brand.
I bought my blusher from Boots, but Rimmel can be found at most supermarkets and chemists, I highly reccommend buying now whilst still on offer.
I would definately try a Rimmel product again, and think it is perfect if you want to experiement with new colours without wasting a fortune on products that will be forgotten about and left in your make up bag.
