Can you believe we're halfway through October already?! Crazy!
Today I am reviewing the Rimmel London Sculpting Palette by Kate. This was quite a hit and miss product for me. I have heard great things about it, but personally, I found it didn't totally live up to the hype. While I do like it, there was also quite a few things about it that I didn't like.
I love the look of the palette. It's aesthetically pleasing to look at. I like the fact you can see the shades through the packaging so you know exactly what you're getting. On the reverse side, there is a handy diagram which shows you where to apply the highlighter, contour and blush. Which I think is great if you aren't too sure.
I have the 002 Coral Glow palette. I have read some reviews that say that the reviewer found it very pigmented, but unfortunately for me it mostly wasn't. I found the highlighter very disappointing. I mean, I don't want it to look blinding or radioactive but I do want some pigment there! I had to go over the same area quite a lot of times. The contour, I found to be more like bronzer as it has bits of shimmer in it, I think I would have liked it more if it had been matte, but I can work with that a lot better than the highlighter. The blush I thought was the best thing about this palette. It's a very nice shade and I found it very pigmented. I think it suits my skin tone.
Something else I didn't like was that my brushes would drag in the products either side of the powder I was using. so I would pick up highlighter and blush on my brush if I was using the contour! But that's just me being super picky!
I know it sounds like I don't like this palette, but I do. I know I will get some use out of it. When I don't want a super made up look and I want to be more 'natural' I will reach for this. I didn't dislike the Rimmel London Sculpting Palette, I just found it slightly disappointing, as I was so excited to use it!
