Rimmel London ~ Summer Fever Blusher

For absolutely ages I've spoken about how much I love the Rimmel London Blush Trio in Summer Fever.  I put my hands up and will honestly say this is my all time favourite holy grail blusher.  Yet I’ve never actually shown you why I love it so much because I have never blogged about it.  Tut tut! 

I love Rimmel a) because they are so cheap b) because they are from the high street and c) because they have such a good selection of items be it great mascaras, foundations and nail polishes etc.

The pan shot

I took this picture of Summer Fever when I first bought it. I’m always taking pictures of makeup, it’s like I’m cataloguing it all in case it goes up in smoke!  After much loving you can see how much I've used.

The Summer Fever Trio is a 3 in 1 trio  (obviously) of three shades with three different purposes.  A baby pink for a blush, the champagne shimmer is for highlighting and then a brown/bronzer for bronzing.  These are very blendable and give a very natural glow over the cheeks.  Individually the colours are lovely looking but mixed together they are even better.  Just see for yourself,  I have inserted the obligatory finger and hand swatches below.

Blush / Highlighter / Bronzer

Even though I’ve used this more than once a week for what feels like forever now, I have yet to hit pan.  The reason I think is, you don’t ever need too much product to get a result.  A nice big swirl in the powder and it gives you enough product for both cheeks.

All three shades mixed together

What I really like is the versatility of this product.  Whenever I use this, I feel like I only need to use this product to achieve a bronzed, blushed and highlighted look.  It is quite literally killing three birds with one stone - as the saying goes.  For a drug store blusher, this lasts a very long time.  It lasts the 9 till 5 working day easily.

You can use the colours individually however that can be a little tricky due to the size of them in the pan.  Whenever I wear this cheek colour I always get comments about how nice I look.  It comes across as quite a warm colour - quite plumy.  

This can be picked up at any Rimmel London stand or online at Boots here.  I cannot find it on the Superdrug site but I have seen them on Amazon site if you fancy a shop on there.  The 3 in 1's comes in 4 different shades (Autumn Catwalk, Summer Fever, Winter Glow and Spring Flower). 

What are your favourite drug store blushers?
