New Rimmel London #Insta Collection

To help us all look #InstaSelfie picture ready in real life without the need for Instagram's beautifying filters Rimmel London have introduced their new Insta Collection.

The new Rimmel London Insta Collection consists of the following five products:

  • Insta Conceal & Correct Palette #colourcorrect
  • Insta Conceal & Contour Palette #conceal
  • Insta Fix & Matte Powder #settingpowder
  • Insta Flawless #tintedmoisturiser &
  • Insta Fix & Go Spray #settingspray.

Rimmel London #Insta Collection


Rimmel #Insta Conceal & Correct Palette

This Rimmel London #Insta Conceal & Correct palette consists of three creamy colour correcting shades to correct any colour flaws on your face.


Rimmel London #Insta Conceal & Correct Palette

The peach shade neutralises dark circles hallelujah! & illuminates face features.

The green shade works wonders in covering blemishes & redness! So useful!

The purple shade mutes yellowish undertones to correct dull & sallow skin.

Rimmel London #Insta Conceal & Correct Palette

For additional benefits each shade also contains Vitamin E, Aloe & Chamomile.

I found all three shades to be beautifully creamy & very easy to blend. I've been using all three shades on my face in different parts of my face to even out my skin tone & create a more flawless base for my foundation. I've found the green shade in particular to be useful for my needs.


Rimmel #Insta Conceal & Contour Palette

The new Rimmel London #Insta Conceal & Contour palette consists of 3 creamy natural shades to cover up & conceal imperfections whilst accentuating our best features.


Rimmel London # Insta Conceal & Contour Palette

There's a highlight, conceal & contour shade, all clearly labelled, allowing you to fully sculpt and contour your face. This would be a great compact palette to take on holidays.


Rimmel London #Insta Conceal & Contour Palette


Once again all three shades feel beautifully creamy and blend well.

The highlight is matte and has no shimmer added to it so I have been adding an additional highlighter with added shimmer to my face after using this palette.

I especially love the concealer in this palette.
This new Rimmel London #Insta Fix & Matte Powder is a micro-fine translucent powder that mattifies the skin.


It might look a bit scarily white and ghost-like in it's container but once applied it is translucent.

Rimmel London #Insta Fix & Matte Powder

lt controls shine and diminishes oil. I find it particular helpful to use on my forehead and nose.

It also helps to set and fix foundation. Anything that helps my makeup last longer without needing a touch up during the day is a winner in my eyes! Yes, as much as I love makeup I'm lazy like that and don't like reapplying makeup whilst I'm at work or out and about. 

As expected from a product that is marketed as helping us look #InstaSelfie picture ready this powder is camera friendly and flashback proof. 

Rimmel #Insta Flawless

The Rimmel London #Insta Flawless is a tinted moisturiser that I've been using for a while now. It leaves skin looking beautifully radiant and glowy.

Rimmel London #Insta Flawless

On weekends I just wear this tinted moisturiser and no foundation for a simple my skin but better look. I love the fact that this product contains SPF15.

Rimmel #Insta Fix & Go Spray

This Rimmel #Insta Fix & Go Setting Spray locks in makeup for up to 8 hours wear. Like I said above I hate reapplying my makeup throughout the day so I totally love his product.

It is a 2 in 1 primer and setting spray. It can be applied underneath your makeup as a primer or on top of your makeup as a setting spray depending on what you prefer. I like using it on top of my makeup as a setting spray.

It also contains cucumber extracts which gives this product a lovely fresh scent which I love.

Rimmel London #Insta Fix & Go

Overall I am really impressed with this new Rimmel London #Insta Collection. You don't need to be a fan of Instagram or of selfies to love this collection. 


Rimmel London #Insta Collection

These products do a wonderful job in creating a flawless look for your makeup. These products have been on high rotation for me since I received them and I will continue using them daily.

Free Priceline Health & Wellbeing Gift Bag

Priceline currently have a fabulous free Health & Wellbeing Gift Bag worth over $165 that they are giving away as a gift with purchase. I love these sort of gifts with purchase especially when I would have spent the money required to qualify for the gift anyway!

Priceline Health & Wellbeing Gift Bag

You just need to spend $39 or more in store at Priceline or online in one transaction across participating brands to receive this generous Health & Wellbeing Gift Bag.

The participating brands are everyday brands that I purchase regularly for our family. 

The participating brands include: Dove, Colgate, Band-Aid, Cenovis, Elastoplast, Gillette, Hask, Kool 'n' Soothe, Atkins, Oral B, Scholl, Swisse Vitamins & Vicks.

As I was needing new disposable razors, deodorant, bandaids and toothpaste it was a no brainer for me to buy these items from Priceline instead of at the supermarket and as a result I easily qualified for this amazing Health & Wellbeing Gift Bag.

I love these sort of gift bags! You get the opportunity to try so many new products and potentially discover new items that perfectly meet your needs that you wouldn't have otherwise known about.

The Health & Wellbeing Gift Bag is packaged in a great toiletries bag with a hanging hook. It's perfect for holding all your bathroom essentials when you're on holidays. 

Priceline Health & Wellbeing Gift Bag

It's also so convenient having the hanging hook allowing this bag to by hung over the shower door and not clutter the bathroom bench which always ends up being so crowded on holidays I find!

My Priceline Health & Wellbeing Gift Bag contained the following products (in alphabetical order):

Atkins Lift Low Carb Chocolate Almond Protein Bar

Band-Aid Dora the Explorer 20 Character Strips Waterproof 

Bio Organics Glycemix Foot & Heel Balm

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste

Dove Shampoo Daily Moisture

Dove Conditioner Daily Moisture

Elastoplast 10 Sensitive Dressing Lengths 

Gillette Fusion Hydra Gel Sensitive Foam

Hask Greek Yogurt Repairing Deep Conditioner Sachet

Kool 'n' Soothe Migraine and Headache Relief Soft Gel Sheets

Oral B Gum Care & Enamel Restore

Scholl Velvet Smooth Nail Care Oil

Swisse Chlorophyll+ Vitamins 
(Supports energy metabolism, immune function & healthy skin, and helps reduce tiredness & fatigue)

Swisse Liquid Iron

Vicks Vapo Drops

Priceline Health & Wellbeing Gift Bag

I am really happy with the above contents of the Priceline Health and Wellbeing Gift Bag and can see myself using everything in the bag! I am especially interested in trying the headache relief sheet next headache I get, and having been off work for the past two days with a severe cold I'm already using the Vicks Vapo Drops to soothe my red raw throat!

This Priceline Health and Wellbeing Gift Bag offer started on 5 August 2017 and will finish on 16 August 2017 unless sold out earlier. If you're wanting to get one of these gift bags I'd run not walk as I think it will be a popular offer especially as the spend required is so low compared to other Priceline gift bag offers in the past.

Does this Priceline gift bag with purchase appeal to you? 

What product are you most interested in trying from this gift bag?
