The Budget Buy: Rimmel 'Nude Delight' And 'Sweet Pink'


We all love a cheap and cheerful drugstore purchase, so here's some of my all year round favourites. Meet Rimmel's Sweet pink and nude delight lippy, accompanied by your must have shade of blush...


So here we have it. A duo of pale pink au naturel lipstick and the ever needed naughty nude. (See what I did there, a little alliteration doesn't hurt anyone!) With all three products under £10.00 each, it would be rude not to! right?

Here's why I think you need them!

Now personally, I think that everyone should have two shades of nude lipstick stapled into their purse/hambag/clutch. A face is never complete without a touch of lippy or even balm, therefore during the day time whether it be working or ladies that lunch, you never know when your gunna' need a touch up. Nude lipsticks go with any makeup look so wherever you are, you know that in your time of need you can delve into your bag and pick up one of these two.



Rimmel's Sweet pink is very lustrous. It is not a matte lipstick however it is very buildable. The reason I love it so much is that it's not too pink that you look like barbie or a Nikki Minaj wannabe, however it is just off the hue of natural lips. It is just enough to show you have made an effort on your lips, but not too much that you will find yourself being glared at! It goes on really smoothly and can be built up to a much stronger pink, which would be great for a night out if need be. Only downside is that lips are not and never will be colour soaking mechanisms, so unfortunately you will find yourself needing a touch up every hour, however it is so natural looking and moisturising and makes your lips feel great!

Tempted you yet?

If so, heres introducing Rimmel Nude Delight. With the same factors in mind as Sweet pink, this lipstick is very moisturising, not so long lasting but very natural. This colour would look absolutely stunning on darker skintones as it would compliment that type of skin colour perfectly. Don't feel left out if your like me, just that little bit on the paler side! It is still really natural looking, looks great with a neutral makeup look and beautiful with a smokey eye! This is an all rounder and can be used wherever and whenever. Like Sweet Pink it is very buildable leaving a gorgeous natural shine. Nude delight has a peachy undertone, which helps to stop the skin from looking sallow and dull, it really is a very complimentary lip colour!


Last but not least, Rimmel Santa Rose. This blusher is so lovely. I discovered it through watching one of Tanya Burr's youtube videos. I had been looking for a nude blusher to compliment a bronze/smokey eye makeup look. When you feel like bronzer is not enough, and you want to accentuate your beautiful peachy cheeks without overpowering your look then this is your baby. It gives a really natural look to your face, and looks every so pretty with its peachy/nude tones. I can rave and enable all I like, but really, these 'go-to' products/colours are essential in your makeup collection!!

Have you tried any of these products before?
