Happy Friday, lovelies!
This idea has probably been around for a while; however, it’s only been in the last fortnight that I’ve seen the phrase “shop my stash” thrown around. It has reminded me that I need to use the makeup I already own and revisit some forgotten purchases rather than just buying more, and more, and more (in saying that, I did just place a Colourpop order yesterday so… I’m trying here).
This week I made an effort to use my Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Palette in the shade 002 – Coral Glow. I purchased this around 6 months ago, but have been neglecting it more in the last couple of months with newer purchases taking over.
I realised that this face palette, which consists of a highlighter, a shimmery bronzer (not too shimmery though, it’s very subtle and wearable), and a peach toned blush, is perfect for the days when I am working. I wear minimal makeup to work, but still want to add colour and definition to my face. This palette is so convenient – instead of staring at my makeup collection for five minutes trying to decide on a blush, bronzer, or highlighter, I just grab this palette and the choice is made!
~ Affordable! Regularly retails for $16.95 from Priceline, but is constantly discounted with numerous sales throughout the year. You can shop this product here.
~ The formula and pigmentation are really nice. It’s not too powdery or chalky, and the colours last well throughout the day on my combination skin.
~ The packaging is cute! I know that it’s the inside that counts, but come on. I love that rose gold packaging and it makes me happy looking at it.
~ The shade range is non-existent. I’m pretty sure this is the only shade currently available – not so great for deeper skin tones. For my fair skin, this is a lovely shade of bronzer, blush, and highlight. Keep in mind also that the highlight shade is subtle, and won’t blind you, which is nice for everyday wear, especially in an office. You’ll see from my swatches that it doesn’t capture well on camera, but it does look lovely on the cheekbones.
~ I wish the pan size of the bronzer shade was slightly bigger – it’s hard to get my large bronzer brush in it to pick up colour without also dipping into the blush and highlight accidentally. A small gripe, but I think it is worth noting nonetheless.
So, that’s it! Overall, I would rate this palette 8/10. Have you tried this product? What do you think of it? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Stay cool (and sculpted),
