This post has been written in collaboration with Rimmel & Influenster on a gifting basis.
Recently I was sent an amazing PR package from Rimmel and Influenster that included Rimmel’s new Urban Affair collection.
When I first got it in the post, I jumped around and screamed in happiness like a 5-year-old. Rimmel is one of my favourite make-up brands. I literally use their Stay Matte powder every. single. time I do my make-up. I’ve used their products for years and I’ve never been disappointed so I was so excited to try out their new collection and I thought I would also share it with you guys in more depth as when I tried everything, I fell in love a thousand times.
Firstly, let’s talk about the lip products. Oh. My. Gosh. They’re insane. They’re Stay Matte liquid lipstick (to go perfectly with my already beloved Stay Matte Powder of course) and they are incredibly. The colours in this collection are all Kylie Jenner-esque and I’m down for it, considering they only cost £5.99.
They are super creamy and dry down to a matte formula really quickly. They don’t dry out your lips though and they lasted me for hours throughout the day. So if you’re looking to pick up a new matte liquid lipstick, you should definitely get one from this collection, trust me.
The lightest liquid lipstick in this collection is Fatal Kiss. It is the most perfect darker nude colour. It’s not so nude that it looks like you’re a corpse but it is not too dark either, it’s somewhere in between. It’s more of an ashy brown nude and I am in love with it. It’s definitely the most wearable out of the three and I’ve already popped into my every day make-up bag! It’s an absolute steal.
The second lightest is Urban Affair. This is a more pinky/purply shade and I’m obsessed. I find this colour really sexy and I think it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I never get along with red lipsticks, so I always try to find pinky shades instead and this is amazing. It’s quite dark, which I love as it will make your lips the main feature of your make-up. Absolutely incredible!
The darkest is Damn Hot and it is so unique. I have never worn super dark lipstick before as I’ve always thought I wasn’t cool enough to pull it off. I decided to try it anyway and now I am absolutely obsessed. This shade is such a dark purple that it can even appear black at times. It is absolutely gorgeous and I think it would be best to pair it with a very neutral eye make-up to let your lips pop. I would 100% recommend trying this one out even if you’re usually not into really dark lip colours because this one will change your mind!
Next, Super Gel nail polishes. It’s my 4th day of having one of the nail polishes on my nails and it is still absolutely perfect. I don’t know what magic potion Rimmel has put in these but I’m so grateful as someone who has the most horrible habit of biting my nails. It’s a complete miracle that the polish hasn’t chipped yet and I am so impressed.
Let’s start with the lightest polish, Urban Affair. This polish is a match with the lightest lip product in this collection – Fatal Kiss. I feel like if you feel both at the same time, you will definitely look like you’ve got your life together. This is my favourite nail polish shade of the collection as I loooooove nude nail polishes. The shade is just as perfect as the matching lip colour’s so definitely grab this if you’re looking for a pretty nude polish!
The most red-ish polish is Fatal Fling, which I feel like is the most perfect shade for Valentine’s Day or a night out. It’s a deep wine red shade and I think it is gorgeous. There’s something about red that just gives me that extra bit of confidence so I am really glad they included this polish in the collection. Definitely one of my faves!
The next polish to match the Urban Affair lip product, is Trust You. This is my second favourite nail polish of the collection and it is absolutely gorgeous. It’s kind of a muted dark purple, which looks so luxurious and elegant and I think would look so beautiful on anyone.
Last but not least, the polish to match the Damn Hot lip product, Devotion. I absolutely love wearing black nail polish but this one is just that extra bit special. In some lights, it looks black and in some, you can see the dark purple shining through, which is so gorgeous. This will definitely be replacing my black nail polish and I’m happy about it.
Also, they included a Super Gel top coat, which I think is the miracle product that has kept my nails chip-free. This product is actually magic so if you struggle with your polishes chipping, do yourself a favour and buy this. It is everything I’ve ever wanted and more.
Let me know if you’re going to try out any of the products. I hope you love them as much as I do!
Be kind, be humble.
