Rimmel Haul

I received some Priceline vouchers in the post the other day. Basically I had like $20 to spend because of the points I have gained from buying from Priceline :) I decided to spend the vouchers as quickly as possible because usually I like wait forever and then forget about them and by the time I find them again, they're invalid!

It was my lucky day! Because Rimmel had a "Buy 2 Get 3rd Free" promotion going on, so the 3 items I bought were:
L to R: Rimmel Exagerate Liquid Liner in Black (HG), Shock Gloss in Clear and Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight.
Also, if you spent $25+ you also got a free Rimmel makeup bag with 3 extra products!
So in the makeup bag, which was all totally FREE, there was "Lasting Finish Nail Polish in 240 Bling", a "Glam Eyes Mascara in Black" and also a "Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil in Black" !!!

All together now :)
When I got to the counter with my 3 items, and the beauty case with 3 extra items, I only had to pay $8!!! So I got like six items for 8 bucks! So good!

Has anyone tried these items?
Love/Hate?

I have a Rimmel Kohl White Liner, and I use it on my waterline but it's pretty stiff so it's difficult to get on, and when I do manage to apply it, it doesn't last that long!!

However, I absolutely love love love the Exageratte liquid eye liner!
I've used it for about 5 years now on and off, and it's just one that I can always go back to and have no problems using it! The applicator is great because it gives a nice strong solid line, and if you apply it harder it will be dense, and with a soft hand the line will be leaner!

What a great haul for only $8!

I haven't tried anything from Rimmel before...I was thinking of getting a mascara from them but I ended getting one from Max Factor instead.

I love white liner...but haven't been able to find a great one.

I went through loads of Rimmel kohl pencils in my teens and while i havent tried nude delight shade i do like Rimmel lipsticks, they are good lasting and seem to be pretty moisturising too!

Wow you've done well! All that stuff for $8, nice lol!
I've got the Rimmel soft kohl pencil in black, and its my new HG pencil liner. It stays on forever, has nice pigmentation, etc.
You have to let me know how the nude delight lipstick goes! I've been wanting to buy it but I'm not sure!

Hi hun!
I am so sorry for the really late reply i have only just read your comment!
I am now a NW15 in MAC Studio fix fluid and use light/medium msf, but when i was a NW20 i used the medium msf natural and it was a perfect colour match for me!
Hope this helps & great blog!

i love both the glam eyes mascara & the soft kohl eyeliner at first but then the mascara kinda dried up, so now I only use it on my bottom lashes.. the soft kohl works really good but when its time to sharpen it, the kohl keeps on breaking, it gets detached from the pencil.. so, no rebuy for me on those items... u have a great haul though... love ur blog!
