Rimmel London’s new make-up for face & eyes
Rimmel London has created a number of new make-up products for face and eyes. New Lasting Finish Dual Finish 25HR Powder is a wet and dry powder foundation that applies like a powder but covers like a liquid, providing a buildable coverage. The powder applies evenly without clogging pores for a weightless, smooth and shine-free finish. Their new 9-in-1 BB Radiance Cream is formulated with shea butter to moisturise, while priming, smoothing, concealing, minimising the appearance of pores and brightening skin. The BB cream is available in three shades: very light, light and medium. Lasting Finish Primer aims to provide an extra eight hours of make-up wear, while visibly blurring imperfections and minimising pores to help skin appear smoother and brighter. For the eyes, the new ScandalEyes XX-Treme Volume & Length Mascara features a two-sided, dual-action brush which visibly thickens, lengthens and separates lashes for a false lash effect. Increase the effect with the new Exaggerate Smoke ‘n’ Shine Eyeliner, which combines an automatic pencil format with creamy formula, enabling easy control, precision and definition. The eyeliner also includes a built-in smudger, and is available in four shades: Little Black Smokey, Copper Bling, Purple Craze and Blue Steel. Each one provides super-saturated, luminous colour with a shiny gel-like finish. (£3.99-£6.99)
