Yup – still can’t decide whether I’m more excited about the show or the memes. Grabbing my phone at 10pm for the Love Island aftermath of discussions and endless memes is what I now live for..
What do we love so much about seeing super attractive semi-famous people looking unrealistically fit 24/7 and practically getting engaged to one another after a week of being coupled up? (Um – one week in the villa is obvs the same as 3 years on the outside)
Fuck the judgmentalism, I’m clearly just jealous..
I just love the shit outta it for whatever reason.. and I’ve got the feeling even your neighbours cat is with me on this one.
Unfortunately, this isn’t a post all about Love Island so I’ll stop with the chit chat. Rimmel London are this year’s makeup partner for the 4th series of ITV2’s hit show. I was sent a complimentary Rimmel London ‘Love Island’ VoxBox from Influenster. I thought I’d review the products and also do a mini tutorial to incorporate them into a ‘festival’ style make-up look.
Rimmel Scandaleyes WOW Wings Mascara
£6.99 // www.superdrug.com
I can’t be the only one who loves a unique mascara wand, right? This winged brush reaches even the smallest lashes to give an instant winged out effect. I love wearing heavy mascara, and I can say after using this it definitely gave me mega volume. It is also long lasting, smudge proof and flake proof.
Rimmel Wonder’swipe 2-in-1 Liner to Shadow
£6.99 // www.superdrug.com
010 Cool AF
At first I thought, eyeliner to eye-shadow? What sorcery is this?! Its rare to find a 2-in-1 makeup product that actually works, but this definitely does. There are 10 beautiful colours to choose from that you can wear either as a striking eyeliner or a sparkly eye-shadow.
As an eyeliner, they have a beautiful vibrant metallic shimmer. To turn into an eyeshadow you can either use your fingers or a brush, and simply smudge it out. Its refreshing to have a sparkly eye-shadow that doesn’t deposit glitter all over your face. These liners are great multi-taskers and are long-lasting with up to 10 hours wear.
Rimmel Love Island Summer Tattoo Transfers
£7.99 // www.superdrug.com
These metallic effect Love Island tattoo transfers are exclusive to Superdrug. They come in cute and quirky designs and are perfect for summer and the festival season. And, because they are Love Island themed, us fans are basically just sold already. Now.. where are the water bottles and t-shirts at?!
I was surprised how beautiful my tattoos came out. They have an amazing high shine in metallic gold, silver and black with a foil finish. You can really get creative by layering and personalising them. What I love is that its so easy to create a mess-free stunning look. In the past I’ve spent hours with gems, glitter and glue to create the perfect look, only to have glitter all down my face and my fingers stuck together. These transfers are dermatologically tested, waterproof, and can last up to 4 days. Remember those temp butterfly tattoos from your childhood? Here we have the chic super-cool modern version.
Apparently, we will see the Islander’s rocking these tats by the pool? I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled!
Here’s some real quick pictures showing the steps to my festival look. Literally I know the quality of the first pictures are shocking.. but I was being lazy. These blog posts take me long enough without taking 10 attempts for the perfect pictures, so I just went with it.
