Long wear Colour Mousse by Rimmel - love it!

Hi everyone,

Yes, it’s incredibly sunny and hot outside! Finally!!!

As I was getting ready to walk Willow about 8am (already sunny) I decided to use a long wear eye shadow as it was likely to get even hotter.

I went for a no fuss look and I used only one eye shadow: Colour Mousse in number 008 (Sassy) by Rimmel. I don’t know why I don’t use it more as it’s gorgeous and so easy to apply! It says it lasts 8hs and I could say that it’s not far from reality. It does last a long time!

Here’s what it looks in the pot:

And here are some swatches:

And finally this is what it looks like when applied:

What I love about these is that you can use them as a base or as a mono eye shadow on the lid or you can do a very easy smokey look (just blend it a bit more on the crease) or you can mix it with other regular eye shadows.

Once they dry they will not move at all so be quick to work with them.

I also have the blue, the purple and the silver (I might have a few more) but I should warn you that I think the formulations are different depending on the colour. I find the blue one incredibly hard to work with and the silver a bit on the runny side and the purple it’s just about right in consistency but still I need to be patient with it.

If you think about purchasing it just go to the Rimmel counter and play with all of them to see if you like the consistency. It might be that I got some faulty ones? Don’t think so but let me know if you experienced the same. I find this one (008-Sassy) to be the most easy to use and to be the perfect consistency.
Also, the colour is just gorgeous. It's like a beige mixed with some silver, gold and plum? It's really sheer in the sun as well :-)

I hope this post was useful.

See ya soon.


Have you tried these Colour Mousses by Rimmel? How do you use them?
