So as you may know Boots has a 3 for 2 offer on all Rimmel cosmetics
As I was too lazy to properly fake tan this weekend I had to nip in and buy some Sun Shimmer 
but at 3 for 2 it would be rude not to buy another 2 Rimmel products
(This is how I justify spending money I don't have!)

*flash sorry*

So this was my little Rimmel stash 

Wake Me Up foundation in shade 201 - Classic Beige

I've been meaning to buy this foundation since I got a little sample in Cosmo a while back 
I used it going out on Saturday night and I LOVED it. 
The first thing I noticed was the citrus type scent which really does wake you up!
It gives me a nice dewy finish without making me look oily
It gives good medium coverage and stayed put all night
It was a nice change and I think I'll be using this a lot in the near future!
One criticism, In the Boots branch that I purchased this in, there were only 3 shades available 
all these were variations of beige
Fine for me but come on Rimmel welcome to the 21st century, we don't all have beige faces 
In saying that, this is certainly not a problem that is exclusive to Rimmel
It's a problem right across the High Street
Sort it out guys!

Sun Shimmer - Medium Matte 

I've been using this product for YEARS
Basically it's my little life saver if I have been to lazy to tan properly during the week then I'll slap this on before I go out.
but as we all know, If it starts raining or you spill a drink, your in BIG trouble!
I noticed while I was in Boots that they have now brought out a Splash-Proof version which I will deffo be trying when this bottle runs out!

Vinyl Gloss - Pin Up (190)

This is a really nice pink shade
but it's not as bright as it looks.
I've got a few shades from this range and I really like them
The only downside is that they are quite sticky, but that can be expected with most glosses

So that's my little Rimmell stash
Have any of you taken advantage of the offer?
