Because I feel like there’s an overload of Urban Decay on my blog I’ve decided to postpone just for a bit the goodie-bag post and the makeup look but I do promise I will get them up and going soon. For a bit of change I have decided to review the new Rimmel London Kate Sculpting palette. Contouring and Strobing are such a major trend in the makeup industry at the moment that almost every single brand are releasing some from of highlighters and contour powders. Personally I like that Rimmel have released palettes because it tends to be one of the more affordable brands on the highstreet.
Kate Moss is the brand ambassador for Rimmel and she has put her name to three sculpting palettes, one for lighter skin tones called 001 Golden Sands which unfornately isn’t available for purchase here in Ireland. The second one is called 002 Coral glow and this one I found that the highlighter wasn’t pigmented enough and the bronzer wasn’t light enough for fair skin and wasn’t warm enough for darker skins. The blush in the palette is beautiful though but for me to like only 1 out of the three makes it a dud in my books. I’ve added a picture of it in case anyone is interested in picking it up and goes looking for it.
For myself I picked up the darkest shade 003 Golden Bronze ironically but it was simply because I liked the highlighter and the blush in this palette. The bronzer is a bit to dark but I can use it as a blush if I really want a natural flush to the cheeks. This palette retails for 6.99 euros and is available in both Boots and Superdrug. I advice you to wait for them to do a 3 for 2 offer on th range before picking them up that why you can get other products for less.
The only thing I don’t like about this product is the packaging. Yes it does have this nice rose gold band outlining it but it is made of plastic and to top it off it doesn’t contain a mirror so you really can’t take it on the go. It’s a nice purchase for everyday use but personally I don’t find it anything special. The blush shade I found it to be similar to a Sleek blush called Rose gold which also happens to be a dupe for Nars Orgasm.
Nothing much else to say about thus palette other than it’s an alright purchase. Let me know if you guys are planning on picking any of the three palettes up.
