First impressions: Rimmel The Multi-Tasker concealer

It’s been a couple of months since I last did a first impressions post, so I thought it was time to do another one. This time I’ve tested the new Rimmel The Multi-Tasker concealer. I was very intrigued by this concealer, because the packaging is so similar to my favourite concealer, the L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer.

As always, I’m wearing primer and foundation underneath the concealer, and I used the Rimmel concealer underneath my eyes and to cover up spots. The concealer has a big doefoot applicator just as the L’Oréal Infaillible concealer, but I really like that. It has a lightweight and thin formula, and it has good coverage but not as full coverage as the L’Oréal concealer, but almost. I picked up the shade 020 Fair, which is very good shade for me. The concealer blended very easily, which is nice. I did set my undereyes with powder, because I always do that, and the concealer looks smooth in the undereye area. I wore my make-up just over 12 hours, and my undereye area looked pretty much the same at the end of the day as when I first applied it. My only complaint, if you can even call it that, is that the concealer around my nose had creased a bit, but it’s not too bad after 12 hours of wear. All in all, I really enjoyed this concealer, however, I don’t think it’ll ever beat my L’Oréal Infaillible concealer, but I still really like it and I’ll definitely continue to use it.

Perfectly matching greens

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. The green shades in the Essence eyeshadow palette By Merve matched my green shirt perfectly. And I think the green eye make-up looks very pretty with the glossy red lip.

Beauty Bay haul – lots of palettes

I have a Beauty Bay haul to share with you today, and it’s all palettes (mostly from BH Cosmetics) + one highlighter.

I love BH Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes, and the travel palettes are some of my favourites from the brand. These two palettes were new when I purchased them in June (!), and they are both beautiful. The top one is the Party in Puerto Rico palette, which is a lovely warm toned palette, and the bottom one is the Passion in Paris palette, which is a stunning blue/purple/burgundy palette, and it’s my favourite one of the two.

I have more travel palettes to share with you. I think these might have been re-packaged since I bought them. Maybe that’s why I was able to get these on sale. The top one is the Summer in St Tropez palette, which is a very fun, colourful and summery palette, and the bottom one is the Beautiful in Barcelona palette, which is a neutral palette with pops of blue.

Okay, this is the last travel palette in this haul. This is the Chillin’ in Chicago palette, which is now re-packaged and called Amore in Amalfi. I got this palette on sale too, so I’m not mad about having the old version.

I purchased one more BH Cosmetics palette. This is the Lookin’ Like A Snack palette from the Say It collection (I’ve also got the Do Not Disturb palette from that collection), and it has such a pretty colour story.

The last palette in this haul is the Wet n Wild Ice Cream Bee palette, which I also got on sale. I just thought this palette looked cute, and I have created a pretty look with it.

The very last product in this haul is the BY BEAUTY BAY Pride powder highlighter in Parade. The powder goes from blue to pink to gold, and it’s just such a fun highlighter that still looks pretty on the skin.

Black and silver

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I rarely wear black eyeshadow, but there’s something about black paired with silver eyeshadow, and I really like how this eye look turned out. Plus it looks stunning paired with a classic red lip.

Metallic lime green

Collective holiday make-up haul

It’s time for another holiday make-up haul. This one is a collective haul of most of the holiday make-up releases that I’ve purchased this year.

Let’s start with the BH Cosmetics holiday collection. These products are the most Christmassy ones in this haul.

First off, I picked up the Kissmas Wishes Liquid Lip Duo in Jingle Belle which contains a red liquid lipstick and a gold gloss; the perfect Christmas lip combo.

I also picked up the Bad & Bougie blush quad, which contains some really interesting and unique blush shades.

And I obviously had to pick up the big palette from this year’s BH Cosmetics holiday collection. It’s called The Lit List eyeshadow palette and it contains 30 shades. They all look so pretty!

This year I also picked up the limited edition Ambient Lighting palette from Hourglass. It’s called Ambient Lighting Edit Universe complexion palette, and it contains five beautiful complexion products. The packaging is stunning too.

The last couple of holiday releases that I’ve purchased are lipsticks. I thought the Clinique Plenty of Pop lipstick set was so cute. I mean, just look at that candy like packaging! I’ve tried three out of five shades already, and I really like the formula.

Lastly, I picked up one of the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Metallics limited edition metallic lipsticks, because it just looked so beautiful. I chose the shade 003 Fiery Red, and it’s such a pretty, metallic red shade. Stay tuned for one more Christmas themed make-up haul.

Metallic, smokey blues

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. If I want to wear an intense, metallic, smokey eye I tend to go for blues, and an all blue eye look was perfect for my all blue (and white) outfit.

All the colours of my jumper

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I tried to create an eye look using most of the colours in my jumper, and I think it turned out quite nice. I also loved wearing a deep, vampy lip.

Matte vs. glowy

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Because of the fact that I wore a matte eye look and a matte lip colour, I decided to make the base and complexion more glowy, and I really like this look.
