Exciting News from Rimmel

Last week, I was invited on a press trip to Ibiza with Rimmel. Not one to turn down such a fabulous opportunity, I was on that plane chanting Vengaboys lyrics in a flash. We stayed at the exclusive Ushuaia Beach Hotel - so exclusive in fact, we were pretty much next door to Frankie and Mollie from The Saturdays! The food was amazing, the atmosphere electric but most importantly, the new products are some of the most innovative and darn right exciting I've seen from the brand in years. Unfortunately, a few of the products aren't due out until September/October so I can't really divulge too much about those but what I can tell you about right now is the Extra Wow Mascara and new I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polishes.
Extra Wow Lash Mascara
The Extra Wow Lash Mascara, £5.49, has a nice chunky fibre brush and I think its 'wow' factor lies in separation and length. If you like your lashes spidery and clumpy, this probably isn't for you. I haven't curled my lashes in this picture so I'm pretty impressed with the curled-back result of this mascara.

New A/W nail shades
The brand have just launched their new A/W Lasting Finish nail shades and unusually for that impending time of year, the colours are bright and cheerful. The packaging too has undergone a serious glamover with its purple-hued Union Jack design. I've been wearing the coral-red Hot and Spicy for a few days now and must say the formula is surprisingly hard-wearing for an under £3 polish! Being the magpie that I am though - what girl isn't? - my party season fave has to be the sparklicious Disco Ball! The polishes are priced at £2.99, and are available now. Sx
