GET READY FOR A SUMMERY XMAS IN AUSTRALIA FEAT. RIMMEL LONDON'S NEW MATCH PERFECTION 24H MOISTURE HYDRATION, FIX & PROTECT MAKEUP PRIMER + VEGAN LIPSTICK BY NEEK!


HAPPY WEEKENDS EVERYBODY!  

Australia celebrates Christmas in a completely different season as opposed to the States where the temperatures are slightly cooler. Get ready for a XMAS summer if you're living "down under" because you're really going to keep yourself super hydrated, use the right products for your skin and stay replenished. 

On a beauty note, I checked out Rimmel London's Brand NEW release featuring their Match Perfection 24 Hour Hydration Foundation along with their famous Fix and Protect Makeup Primer. Also featured is the fabulous Neek Organics Vegan Lipstick. 

The products on the line-up today consists of the following: 
  • Rimmel London - Match Perfection 24HR Moisture Hydration SPF 20 in Medium. 
  • Rimmel London - Fix & Protect, Makeup Primer. 
  • Neek Organics - Vegan Lipstick by Neek 

Overall, all of these products have helped me to achieve a fun and summery look which I shall reveal later in the post. (Simply scroll below to check it out lovelies!) These products have worked amazingly on my skin and I am super satisfied with experiencing these over the few weeks. They make the perfect basic necessities to my everyday make-up by providing the ultimate coverage that's needed to achieve a nice and flawless complexion. 

So check out my thoughts below to see what I thought about these great make-up essentials x 

NEEK, SKIN ORGANICS AUSTRALIA - VEGAN LIPSTICK IN SHADE COME INTO MY WORLD 

Featuring a 100% completely natural vegan lipstick that feels great on the lips and the colour is simply amazing. I tried out the vegan lipstick in shade "Come into my world" which features a light baby pink shade that looks simply gorgeous and very girly. 

So you're probably wondering vegan lipstick? Yes...you heard right because this lipstick contains jojoba oil and shea butter that has been infused with a mix of natural pigments and micas which all help to create colour and texture to the lips. The texture of the lipstick feels so creamy that I really love it because it glides on so well onto the lips. It also feels hydrating and moisturising on the lips and I am quite pleased with the overall colour of "Come into my world". It somewhat reminds me of a neutral and nude based type of colour which is super easy and convenient to wear with just about anything (clothing, shoes and other make-up). The pink toned lipstick is also ideal for those with a slightly medium-darker skin tone because the lip shade will really stand out for you. 

It's also good to note that the lipstick is free from any paraben, lead, sulphate, phthalate, mineral oil and also synthetic fragrances. Now comes to the product packaging itself, it's all made in Australia so that's definitely a positive factor to note. The packaging is in the form of environmentally friendly cardboard, so be sure to recycle the product after you've finished up with it. Overall, I absolutely loved the overall shade, texture and the unique packaging of the vegan lipstick. Most of all, I love the lightweight factor the lipstick has and I am so impressed with the Neek vegan lipstick - which was my first time trying a new brand out.

TRIED + TESTED 


Rocking Neek's Vegan Lipstick in Shade Come into my World. 
I really loved the creamy texture and the lovely colour it brought out on my lips. 


Next, we have Rimmel London's NEW Match Perfection foundation (SPF20), along with their Fix and Protect Makeup Primer. 

Check out the below to see what process I took to get nice and flawless looking skin. 


RIMMEL LONDON, FIX & PROTECT MAKEUP PRIMER SPF 25 

STEP 1: PRIME YOUR SKIN 

Fix and protect your skin with the ultimate skin primer, in this case, I've used Rimmel London's Fix and Protect Make-up Primer in SPF 25. The fact that it already has a sun UV protection element of SPF 25 factor to it, I am instantly amazed and very impressed with the primer itself. The Rimmel London, Fix and Protect Make-up primer actually looks to deliver three benefits to your skin. One of it being that it looks to Prime your skin, which is essential if you're looking to build foundation/BB/CC coverage on the top layer because this means that it will make your overall coverage last much longer. Not only does it look to prime, but it also Protects and Prevents the skin from daily stresses which could be due to the weather and other factors.

A primer is so important for me when it comes to putting on a foundation base to my skin because I know that my make-up will last longer and stay protected longer. Essentially by using a primer, you're giving your skin a whole layer of perfecting and multi-protecting care to it. The make-up primer formula is quite lightweight and does not feel oily or sticky at all. When dispensed from the product, you get a very light liquid which absorbs quickly onto the skin. When used onto the skin, the primer makes your skin feel super moisturised and the best thing is that it protects your skin from pollution, dehydration and filters out the UV rays.

Also, the primer acts as a blurring effect where it has light diffusing properties that instantly looks to blur out any blemishes and smooth out any imperfections on the skin. It also illuminated my skin making it look near perfect for my foundation process. I could really tell that the primer has actually smoothed out my face along with the foundation making it seem as if I had baby skin! With the primer, it lasts for about 7 hours where it makes your face feel super plump and very mattified. If you happen to have oily skin, you'll truly fall in love with the formula because having a matte overall look is the way to go. You can either choose to wear the Make-up primer alone or under your foundation/BB/CC cream for a longer lasting wear to your face. 

Overall, this Fix and Protect, make-up primer by Rimmel London is amazing and so affordable which is why in the long-run it makes sense to opt for an effective product that works! 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • RRP $13.95 
  • Available from Priceline, Target, Kmart, Big W, selected pharmacies, Coles and Woolworths.

RIMMEL LONDON, MATCH PERFECTION 24HR MOISTURE HYDRATION IN SPF 20

Rimmel London has recently introduced their new foundation range featuring the Match Perfection 24HR with SPF 20 Moisture Hydration. This product really looks to instantly blur out the pores on your skin revealing a much flawless looking and smoother skin. I have obvious pores on my nose and so when I used this new Match Perfection foundation, it looked to cover so effectively and well that I am super satisfied with Rimmel's new addition. 

The new Match Perfection Foundation looks to cover your skin effectively with its invisible coverage which gives your skin a nice and flawless overall complexion. What is so great about the new foundation is that it blends it so well that it does not even look like I am wearing foundation. It feels super comfortable and not too heavy which is good. The advanced wonder-tone technology creates a nice combination between the skin and foundation for a refined complexion which means that it looks almost natural. The fact that it's branded as 24HR moisture hydration, this means that your skin stays moisturised and hydrated for a good 24 hour - hence if you're planning to stay up for that long, have no fear about the moisture levels because the new Match Perfection by Rimmel London will have you sorted. 

As for the rest of the coverage, I got a nice decent cover to my dark circles, pores and slight minimal discolourations on the akin. The Match Perfection foundation by Rimmel contains light-reflecting and soft focus powders where it looks to optically blur out any imperfections - just like the Fix and Protect Make Up Primer by Rimmel London. For a nice poreless finish to your skin, you'll definitely love the new addition. 

As for the shade, I tried out 400 in natural beige which blended in well with my skin colour. At first I thought it was dark, but when you apply it on and then look to blend right through, it starts to look better. There are also 7 other shades which you can check out on their website or in-store so this gives you more options to play with when selecting the right colour shade. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • RRP $18.95 
  • Available from Priceline, Target, Kmart, Big W, selected pharmacies, Coles and Woolworths.
