Rimmel are one of my favourite drugstore brands, always high quality products at affordable prices so when I spotted these beauties I just knew they had to come home with me. There’s something about ‘gimmicky’ makeup that I love and I would say these definitely fit that description, it almost takes me back to my childhood and the freedom to play, explore, create and experiment with makeup without it needing to look ‘aesthetically pleasing’.
Rimmel have launched a new range just in time for festival season ‘Ink Me Up’ consists of 4 Tattoo Stamps, 2 Body Ink Liner’s and a Black & Gold temporary tattoo pack. Festival’s are the events where everyone gets a little experimental in their makeup looks and embrace their inner child, applying as much glitter, bright colour’s and decorative patterns as possible and the Ink Me Up range make’s that playful makeup time much easier to achieve your desired look.
The packaging of these reminds me of eyeliner pens, very sleek, very lightweight, simple black plastic tube with Gold printed design, each of them decorated with their associated stamp. There are 4 stamps in the collection; Star, Moon, Heart and Diamond each of them millimetre’s in size but leave behind the sharpest blackest stamp to create fun patterns (TIP: to prevent bleeding use a powder before hand or hold down for 1-2 seconds at a time) . I would love to see these become available in more colours than just black, but I adore all 4 designs and can’t wait to collect them all.
The body liner packaging is very similar to liquid eyeliner products with the liquid pigment in the bottom and the brush applicator attached to the handle. Currently only available in 2 shades, Black and Gold, keeping with the black and gold theme of the Ink Me Up range, I would love to see Rimmel expand there colour range introducing more fun colours to play with as the black liner really isn’t necessary as you could achieve the same desired look using a normal eyeliner pen/liquid liner product, that being said the black liner is super pigmented, smooth, no dragging or bleeding, the brush is soft, flexible and precise. The Gold liner is a little more subtle in it’s pigmentation but does have a reflective shift that catch’s the light so you can pair with the black to add highlight and definition, or work it into an eye or lip look.
