Review: Rimmel Live the London Look

Rimmel has always been one of my favourite drugstore brands, offering a wide range of high quality makeup for affordable prices. I was recently sent the "Live the London Look" kit, which included some of the best-selling products by the brand and was populated along UAE/GCC as the perfect Eid look. The kit is supposed to contain 4 products for a full-face of makeup, mine contained only 3 and the remaining product was sent to me a few months back to review as well (MAGNIF'eyes eye shadow palette), so I was still able to create the full look.
Without any further adieu, I will start reviewing the kit:

1- The Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner (003 Glossy Black):
The eyeliner is supposed to have an intense black formula, give the ultimate control on drawing precise lines and stay put for up to 16 hours. The eyeliner comes with a brush tip applicator, which i almost never buy because i'm more of a felt tip pen kind of girl, but i was still keen on giving this a try. The moment i started drawing with this eye liner, I was blown away as the pigmentation was intense and pitch black. The applicator was surprisingly easy to use and helped me create beautiful precise lines/flicks. Also, the formula went on very smoothly without looking patchy or feathering out, but you need to give it some time to dry. The eyeliner mentions that the formula is waterproof, so it stayed on all day without smudging or fading. I'm highly impressed by the quality of this eye liner, it performs even better than some high-end ones and instantly transforms the eyes. 

2- Scandal'eyes Reloaded Mascara: 
This mascara is the updated version of the regular Sandal'eyes mascara, it's supposed to be long wearing and give an unstoppable volume. The brush of this mascara is the bristle type, so it brushes the lashes nicely and does not feel painful or spiky. Also, the brush does not pack on lots of product and create a mess everywhere around the eyes - so thumbs up for that! The formula goes on quite smoothly, it gives volume and separates the lashes as well. The volume this mascara gives is more on the natural side, it will never clump up  but you  need to add a few coats to make it look dramatic. This mascara tends to stay on the entire day without flaking or smudging and it's easy to remove as well. This mascara perfectly compliments the exaggerate eyeliner, they both create an attractive and sultry eye look.

3- Provocalips Lipstick (Shade: #730):
I have been eyeing this lipstick from a long time and so glad it came in this kit. This liquid lipstick is supposed to be kiss proof, waterproof, transfer proof and you name it proof! It's a dual ended product with a matte colour on one side and a clear gloss on the other side. Mine is in the shade #730, which is a beautiful nude pink that goes almost with any makeup look. The formula of the lipstick goes on the lips easily, looking opaque from the first swipe and drying to a velvet matte finish. The product needs to be left for 60 seconds to dry before following with the gloss or you can simply wear it alone. This lipstick was indeed long wearing, it stayed on even after eating/drinking and did not get crumbly or uncomfortable throughout the day. However, it will slightly fade if you eat oily food but this is the case with most liquid lipsticks. I'm totally in love with this lipstick and have been wearing it almost everyday. I'm tempted to try the other shades this range has to offer, as it also comes in gorgeous bright pinks and reds.
