Rimmel London Sculpting Palette // Review

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all enjoying the weekend!

I saw one of my favourite YouTubers, Suzie from Hello October singing the praises of the new Rimmel Sculpting Palette. When i saw how amazing it looked on Suzi, i knew i had to have it! So, i swung by my local Boots on the way home from work and was eager to see how i got on with it.

The Rimmel Sculpting Palette is part of the hugely popular Kate Moss range. Some of my favourite lipsticks come from the Kate range, so i was excited to see how the palette's quality compared. The palette is a great all in one sculpting product as it has contour, blush and highlight shades. The palette is contained in a lightweight plastic holder with a flip lid. In the long run, it might not be the most durable but the lightweight aspect means that it is perfect for travelling and it also looks pretty gorgeous with the gold border. I believe that there are two shades of the palette available, 002 Coral Glow and 003 Coral Bronze. I chose Coral Glow as i thought it suited my skin tone better out of the two.



The highlight is the most perfect daytime appropriate highlight that i have used. Sometimes highlighters can look a little too stark for everyday where, but the Rimmel one gives the most beautiful subtle champagne glow that really adds that extra bit of sheen to your everyday look. The contour shade is on the warmer side and i feel that it works just as well as a bronzer too! The colour pay off for the contour shade is quite subtle, and is great to use if you just want a little definition. I also think the contour shade is a great opportunity for people who maybe aren't too confident in contouring to use as it is not as pigmented as other contour shades which are available from other brands. I have actually swapped my trusty Benefit Hoola contour and have been using the Rimmel contour shade everyday since i bought it! The reason being, is that the shade gives me just enough definition for an everyday look and if i apply it in a hurry before work, i can be sure that it is going to give me foolproof subtle definition. Finally, lets move onto in my opinion, the star of the show! The blush is hands down one of my favourite blushes ever. A bold statement, i know but trust me, it really is such a beautiful shade. I find that the blush has just the right amount of pigment to give a lovely coral flush to the cheeks and the slight shimmer adds a lovely glow! The texture of all the shades in the palette are quite similar and apply smoothly to the skin. 

In the past, i have found that high street brands can have quite a chalky texture to their powder products but that definitely isn't the case here. The smooth texture allows the products to apply beautifully and effortlessly to the skin and you are left with a gorgeous everyday defined look.

If you haven't guessed already, i am pretty impressed with the palette and i'm already considering buying a back up! Its a palette that i have been using religiously since i bought it as it has everything i need to create a defined daytime cheek look. Priced at just £6.99, this kit would be a perfect addition to anyones make up collection. I would especially recommend it for people who want to dabble in contouring and highlighting for the first time as the pigments in this palette help you to create a softly defined look. Although the shades in the palette are on the more subtle side, they can be built up to create a more defined look. The palette also has a helpful diagram and explanation of how to use the shades on the back. 

Let me know if you have tried this palette, and what you thought about it!
