Rimmel Insta Makeup Collection

Rimmel has added some perfecting and protecting makeup to their collection to ensure that you keep that perfect face for more hours during the day. I tried the Insta Fix & Go 2 In 1 Primer & Setting Spray, Insta Flawless Perfecting Radiant Primer and the Insta Fix & Matte Translucent Powder. As you can tell, there is makeup in the line for every stage of application.

I’m not crazy about primer, so I wasn’t surprised that I wasn’t crazy about the Rimmel product. It didn’t seem to add anything to my face. I am more a fan of primer that helps to do more to my face. The Rimmel primer might have added some shine, but it was subtle.

I love the Rimmel powder though. This powder is a multi-purpose makeup… is there anything better to hear? You can use it to stop shine, to make your skin look matte, to keep your makeup on longer and to fix any foundation issues. It’s great for makeup pros or novices because of how versatile it is.

Finally, the Fix & Go Setting Spray is one of those middle of the road products. I can’t tell yet whether it is a saving grace or an extra step. I have been noticing that my makeup is staying on longer, but I’m not sure if I can attribute that to the Rimmel spray or my foundation.

The Rimmel Insta line gets the thumbs up from me though and I can’t wait to try more from it. The contouring and highlighting makeup has been added to my wish list!

Pixi Quick Fix Powder


Pixi Quick Fix Powder is meant to be your last step in creating a soft makeup look.

When I first opened this mini-powder bottle, I instantly found a problem. The puff pad on top didn’t help to apply this powder. I had to really hit my face to get the powder to come out. It just felt very light circles on my cheeks that wouldn’t really blend. I figured it was over.

Until I realized how easily I could take off the lid and get at the powder with my brush. This was much easier!

This way the powder still left me wanting more. The powder is heavier than most of these types of finishing powders. I could feel it on my skin. It wasn’t totally clear. I felt like it always lightened my face a bit. It just didn’t live up to my expectations for Pixi.
