Advantages: Easy to apply and build up the colour with it
Disadvantages: Compact is a little cheap looking
Whenever I apply make up I always use a blusher. I am very pale skinned and do have cheekbones so I do like to use a bit to add a bit of colour and to define what I do have.
Rimmel isn't a range that I purchase very often to be honest. I tend to purchase Boots Natural Collection of cosmetics and own a lot of Boots No 7, Bourjois and Urban Decay and tend to really stick to what I know.
Now this isn't a widely available product and I received mine as a gift from my mum who didn't like or use it. You can however purchase this online if you Google it and get it for around the £3.50 - £4.00 mark in a variety of shades from peach through to browns and I can only find about 6 shades in the range.
The shade I have is Pink Rose and as suggested it is a pink shade. Its 4g in weight and comes in a dark black plastic and see through flip top case with the word Rimmel London wrote on the front it along with a little white crown shown then on the base of it we are told what it is and the colour stated, the size is there and contact details for Rimmel are Given. Please note there is no applicator given with this or any mirror in the compact though it is robust enough.
What you get is a a rather large squarish shape of pressed powder. It has little fragrance to it apart from a hint of a make up sort of smell to it which is light and indistinct and when you first get your little compact there is a raised and embossed crown shape on it which as you use the blusher disappears.
So like I say you get no applicator with this so to apply it I simply use a nice soft blusher brush and I have to admit I rather like this one!
It comes off and clings to my brush finely and easily without dropping off and flaking everywhere and then I simply gently sweep it where I want it to go. It blends superbly well and with very little effort at all and of course I am left to build up the colour as I want to.
Once this is on my face it doesn't transfer off, isn't glittery or fake looking and simply stays put all day long then when I want to remove it I use my usual make up removing routine to do so and it comes off as easily as it stays put...with real ease!
This doesn't agitate my sensitive skin, something I was slightly concerned about when I saw it was a Rimmel product as I haven't liked very many of their products on my face over the years at all but I haven't had any break outs of spots or anything else adverse like that and as a little of this goes a very long way indeed this will last me ages!
I really like the way this is easy to apply, stays put and makes my skin soft wherever it is placed and for that reason I'd buy it again with no thought as I think it is a really good value for money product this one!
