Rimmel has always been my favourite drugstore brand, as I just think they do some great products at brilliant prices. I'm going to show you my top 5 items from them - it was so hard to narrow it down as I love pretty much everything I've ever tried from them! So let's get started:
5. Rimmel London Stay Matte and Clear Complexion Powders, €5.99
I think it's fair to say that Rimmel are most well known for their Stay Matte powder - it's a lot of people's staple powder that has won numerous awards. When I went to buy it they only had the coloured powders so I got Silky Beige, and I love it! It gives a little extra coverage without looking cakey, and it's handy if you're wearing a light coverage base that you want a little boost on. It keeps your make-up looking flawless and matte for the whole day, with very little need to touch up. It reminds me of my holy grail powder, MAC's Mineralise Skin Finish Natural - just at a fraction of the price!
I also love the Clear Complexion Powder. It's a transparent powder which is marketed as a clarifying, anti-shine powder with 'Pureskin Complex'. Admittedly, I haven't noticed a difference in my skin from using this powder, but I do love the staying power of it and how it sits on my skin. It controls shine and mattifies the skin, it's also enriched with natural minerals.
4. Rimmel London Stay Glossy Lip Glosses, €7.79

3. Rimmel London Eyeliners
Rimmel do the best drugstore liners in my opinion - I can't fault them! As I've mentioned before, I'm useless with liquid liner but I love the Rimmel Glam'Eyes Professional Liquid Liner, €7.19. It has a long, slim, tapered brush that offers precise control when applying the liner. It dries to a matte black finish and it doesn't flake when you reapply over what you've already done. It doesn't smudge or transfer either. It's one of the easiest liquid liners I've ever tried, and it's so inexpensive too! I couldn't recommend it enough.
Rimmel are also well known for their pencil liners, €4.67, with many comparing them to the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencils, and they also come in a variety of colours like the Urban Decay ones.
2. Rimmel London Fix And Perfect Pro Primer, €8.85
1. Rimmel x Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick, €6.99
