Product Review- Rimmel and Sally Hansen

As you all know I've been raving about the Kate Moss for Rimmel Lipsticks on my FB page and Instagram lately, ever since I found the perfect red lippie in Rimmel,for the black tie event I had to attend in London in February. After that, I've purchased so many different shades and I love how smooth the texture is and the fact that it smells so delicious. I always get questions on what lip color I'm wearing and it always answers to Rimmel !
Moving on, I recently had the chance to try on some more products from Rimmel and it turns out I have a few new favorites! The best part is that most of these products are easy to review as you don't need a week or two to see the effects.

Sally Hansen Smooth & Perfect hand cream (Try it)
This hand cream has now become a part of my 'office desk essentials'.It smells great and keeps the hand moisturized.My favorite aspect that it isn't very oily and yet manages to make my hands soft and supple.If you're like me and have the obsessive need to moisturize your hands every one hour, you will love this product.

Scandaleyes lycra flex mascara (Recommended) 
Amazing product.Thick brush for easy application.(Tip: Apply three coats for dramatic eyes.) Lashes are even easy to curl post application.

Rimmel gel liner: (Genius product, Highly recommended)
Now I've always been a lakme liquid liner girl for about 7 years now, but I have got to say that I'm in love with the gel liner.I have tried so many liquid liners till date and hated all of them. None of the liners gave me precision as Lakme did,until now.
Apart from the smart packaging where the lid converts into a brush, the consistency is so smooth and the long handle makes application super easy.I have always received compliments on the way I wear my liner and trust me on this ladies, you have got to try the gel liner by Rimmel. It is insanely dark and wont smudge. I wore it to work today and it hasn't smudged one bit! P.S: Still wearing my liner as I type this post.

Sally Hansen Salon Finish nail polish (Must Try)
If you follow me on instagram, you all know about my insane nail polish collection.The color I have on below is in "Pumice". Its a duck-egg sort of grey and while usually I'm not the one to lean onto such colors  I somehow love this one.My colleagues also tried on the nail paint and strangely it suits every skin tone! Plus the Sally Hansen salon finish gives a glossy appearance and dries instantly.

Sally Hansen Brow tweezer (Must buy)
Every woman needs a good pair of tweezers.Now I don't shape my brows. The last time I had them shaped was six months back. I get them shaped once in a blue moon and pluck out all the extras myself, and thanks to Sally Hansen, my job is so much easier now. It has such a good grip and works like a dream, even on the bushiest of brows.

Rimmel 9 in 1 BB Cream
The color is a little too light for my skin tone so I really cant actually use the product, but I'm being economical and am using small amounts of it as a brightener under my eye.The consistency however is good and blends in easily.So thumbs up to that.

Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks (Highly Recommended)
Haven't I raved about this product enough? Need I say more?

Have you guys had the chance to try on any of these products? Feel free to leave in comments or any questions you may have.

I am a big fan of Sally Hansen products for hands and nails, specially the hand cream, Salon range of nail paints and I tried their French Manicure set, must say it's great and you get a decent French Manicure at home.
