Last month, Rimmel launched some new eye products; two mascaras and two eyeliners to their already huge collection.
When I received these products, I instantly had high hopes, firstly because Cara Delavigne is the face of the collection, and if Cara approves, we all should, right?! Secondly, as Rimmel are truly a brand I feel that I can really trust to always be affordable, but of high quality. They're a real go-to brand for me in all areas.
The brush is pretty big and the bristles themselves are of maximum density and slightly tapered, which helps them to work corner to corner, capturing each and every lash and fitting the shape of any eye.
The formula is really wet, but dries quickly once applied, and has a glossy finish to it, which gives an intense black coating to all of the lashes.
I'm also pleased to report that there is no flaking throughout the day with these mascaras, and very little smudging - I would say no smudging but my heavy lids and long lashes seem to be the enemy of mascaras and pretty much every mascara I ever use has smudged on me by the end of a long day's wear!
If you want to achieve a fine or subtle line, or want to be really precise and draw something fancy, then the Precision Micro is the one for you. It has a fine, felt tip style nib with a delicate point to the end which will help to create a very defined and sleek line or flick.
For something bolder, the Thick & Thin liner has a 3D slanted felt tip nib, which enables you to easily create a thick to thin line across the lid - perfect for an eyeliner noob like myself!
What I can say though, is that the formula gives a really glossy black line, which lasts all day on the lids without smudging, bleeding or wearing away... It's also really great to draw back over. As I'm so rubbish at applying liner, in the past I've applied a wobbly line, and gone back in to neaten it, which resulted in the liner coming straight back off. This one however is really buildable and workable, which is a huge bonus for me!
So basically, Rimmel have done it again with another release of some really good quality products.
The mascaras are available for only £6.99 and the liners are £5.49 from Boots and Superdrug.
