Rimmel Steel Grey, Rimmel Camouflage & The Brush Comparison

Unintentionally, I seem to have turned my weekend blog posts into "All Rimmel-All The Time"! That's going to end after this post, because I was just outside taking some pictures of Chanel Illusion D'Or and I think I could've stayed out there playing with that one for hours! But for now, here's a look at another Rimmel from their Lasting Finish Pro Line, Steel Grey.
Above: As I've mentioned in my 2 previous posts, this newest line from Rimmel is fantastic. I'm getting a nice opaque look with 2 coats and the application is quick and easy. Steel Grey is similar to many taupes I have, but what's one more taupe, right?
Above: An older, yet much loved Rimmel, Camouflage. This medium kelly green is infused with gold shimmer and is shown using 2 coats.
Below: A brush comparison of the two featured colors will show you a huge difference in the design. I personally find them both easy to work with.
My overall thoughts on the new Rimmel line are that they are far superior to many other drugstore polishes, and at $3.99 a piece, you're really getting a quality polish at a great price. I love the bottle design, the wider brush with the somewhat angled bristles make for an easy application, and the formula is excellent.

  2. Thank you for the brush comparison! I have been a huge Rimmel fan for ages but I do prefer a little wider brush, not house painting size but closer to pro wide. :)

  6. The Steel Grey looks more taupe. Lovely shade on you. I also like it. I bought Camoflage last year. Sadly I haven't worn it. I'm glad to know that these polishes are so good. I haven't used any of their makeup. Do you know if that's any good?

  8. Aru~these new ones are fantastic! I never had a problem with the older ones on the shimmers, but the cremes were chippy. THis formula seems much better.

    Evil Angel~you're welcome, that was for you! I like them wider too in most cases, but get irritated if they're cut all uneven, which these are not :)

    Distant Dreamer~I'm happy I picked it up too, very nice taupe shade.

    SilhouetteScreams~Camo is a favorite of mine and many others! The brush is very similar to Sally Hansen's, and I imagine more will be coming out with this style.

    Patinails~glad you like it! The formula is great too, so it's a great polish.

    Lucy~it is definitely more taupe, so the name might be a little confusing! The only makeup I have is some eye shadows which are just alright, nothing special, and some of their glosses, which I do like quite a bit.

    Eliza~I think you should have this one! Ha-ha~it's very nice though :)
