Rimmel London Holiday essentials

I was given products in this post to test and give my honest feedback.  All opinions are my own.
Welcome to the 2015 Simply Me Holiday Gift guide!  The holidays should be fun.  At times finding the perfect gift, great deals, decorating and recipes can be overwhelming.  The Simply Me Blog wants to put the fun back into the Holidays so over the next several weeks I will be posting great gifts for everyone, decorating tips, recipes and everything in-between!

Halloween parties, 3 November B-days, Thanksgiving, 3 December birthdays, School Christmas Shows, Christmas and New Years Eve.  The next three months are BUSY and require I dress up quite a bit.  Sorry fluffy PJ's you are getting put on the back burner for awhile.
I pick out cute outfits, adorable shoes and I even attempt to do my hair.
I get stuck in a rut though with my makeup.  Cover-up, blush, chap stick and a sweep of mascara. 
I want to start being adventurous!  I want long pretty lashes and I want different eye shadow and lip colors!

Who says at 28 I can't change up my look?  Okay well I will still most likely do the same things cover up, blush, chap stick and some mascara.  This year though I am going to make of an effort.  Bye bye chap stick you are getting replaced with some pretty color.
No more blend it mascara I want my eye lashes to be seen!  And yes I am going to start wearing color on my eyes!  AND NOT JUST BROWN AND NUDE!

Get ready readers for the beauty posts, because they woman is making a few changes.

I need help though for the past 13 years I have really be doing the same thing over and over.
I asked around to my friend and they told me some of their favorite products.  Rimmel London was mentioned quite a bit as having stunning products that work and are affordable.
The first thing that caught my eye was the all new Wonder Lash Lift me Up Mascara.  It is formulated with vitamins and cucumber to both nourish and make you look good.  Leaves a fresh scent and refreshes.
The wand is designed to make your lashes clump free and pull them up.
Now I know when I read a beauty post words mean nothing.  I want to see the results.... 
So I took a photo on one eye I am wearing the all new Wonder Lash Lift me Up Mascara (Trust me you will know which one)
On my other eye I am wearing my old Mary Kay Mascara.
This eye is Wonder Lash Lift Me Up       This eye is Mary Kay

I wanted to do this not just for you, but also for me.  I noticed the results almost right away!  The Wonder Lash Lift Me Up by Rimmel London give my lashes volume!  They look so much longer!
The mascara was super easy to apply and it wasn't hard to get off either.  I used a basic eye make up remover.
My lashes didn't feel stiff and there wasn't that over the top mascara smell (I think the cucumbers are mostly to thank here)

I don't know about you, but after see my results I am having a hard time going back to my old stuff!!  I may just toss it to be honest.

As you know Mascara is only one of hundreds of items offered by Rimmel London.  Thankfully after see my eyes I wanted to spruce up my lips too.
So I also asked to review Rimmel London's moisturize renew lipsticks.
It is a lipstick that gives you color and moisture.  During the harsh winter months I need both.  My lips are always chap, I need something that can protect them and look good.
Rimmel London's moisture renew lipstick has a vitamin A, C and E formula to give your lips all they need.

I could use the rest of this post just listing the colors, but I think I will stick to the three I was sent.
Ringa Ringa Roses 

Notting Hill Nude

In love with Ginger

As you can see each color is super rich and I'm sure you noticed they make my lips look smooth.  I love that even after using my lips feel soft and refreshed.  Never once did my color feel compromised!  Now I can't see me wearing In love with Ginger to often.  I want change but that one may be to much to fast (I'll work up to it)  But I am in love with the other two and Ringa Ringa Roses has become my new go to color.
I love that it adds moisture and makes my lips look cute.

I have tried 4 products from Rimmel London and I love them all. 

 Making changes is tough on everyone.  Decided to change my look has been scary, I didn't even know I was in a rut until my hubby was in my room one day and knew exactly what to hand me and when :(.  
With great products like the ones Rimmel London offers it is easier and the fact they look good makes me want to keep trying new things.   And I will be honest it has been fun, something as simple as changing the type of mascara I use or the lip color I apply.  

As I said the products I reviewed are only 4 of many.  And the colors I review again are only a few of the many offered.  To see everything please see my link below;
