Beauty Review: Rimmel Dare to Bare

Friday, November 2, 2007

I recently got a bunch of freebies from Rimmel and I was so excited to try them!

The first thing I tried this morning was the Rimmel Dare to Bare Face and Body Luminizer in Make Me Blush. When I opened the tube and tried to squeeze out a little bit, it came out super watery and not rich or creamy like I thought it was going to be. Especially since the Ulta website described it as a luminous "cream". Hmmm - very suspect.

I also noticed in the top corner of my tube that it said to "shake well". So I shook it up thinking that maybe it had been sitting too long since I did have it in my makeup bag for about a month before I tried to use it today. I opened it up again and tried to squeeze a little more out. Still watery. Now I was really skeptical to put it on my face, but I did it anyway.

I wanted to use it as a cheek highlighter, but since the consistency wasn't creamy like I thought, it didn't work too well. I tried not to rub it in but I couldn't really help it because it was so watery. What was left on my face was this iridescent sheen that was kind of nice but I wasn't really diggin' the consistency and lack of ease while trying to apply it.

I will never put this on my face again and, at best, I will use this on my arms or chest when I want a little sparkle in my life.

Ladies, I wouldn't waste my time with this Rimmel product if I were you, although I hear some of their other products are not too bad. I have some other Rimmel items that I'll be reviewing in the near future. Check back soon!

I don't often pick things up at the drugstore because I can't test them. I'm glad I got to try this out before I had to pay $7 for it! :)
