  43. 43. Lipstick Reviews • ’s Rimmel Product Review • I do want to strongly recommend this products’ moisture level. It’s really great and smooth and goes on and off extremely well. How good is the moisture level? After 2 hours, it still felt very moist. A lot of big brands’ lipsticks can not reach this level of moisture, but Rimmel’s can. I’m not sure if you like the fact that it is odorless or not, but I personally do not like odors so I think it’s good. This is a product that I would definitely buy again Thursday, October 8, 2009
  44. 44. Lipgloss Reviews • Zhenzhen’s Rimmel Product Review • Overall, I’m very satisfied with this lipgloss. The lipgloss is odorless and tasteless so its easy to like. It’s a bit sticky but not too much. After you put it on, you don’t really notice. I have long hair and my hair never got stuck on my lips. The color is very glittering. Today I just put on one layer because the color is very light. If you put on multiple layers, it would look very beautiful. After 5 hours of use, I didn’t notice any problems with the lipgloss clumping up. The value for price ratio is very high. In China, it is sold for 38 RMB, which is so cheap! Thursday, October 8, 2009
  45. 45. Foundation Reviews • “100% ” Efluencer Rimmel Product Review • The little application pad is very cute and the mirror can open up to 180 degress (a lot of foundation packaging only opens 90 degrees which can be inconvenient). The application pad is very soft like a sponge, which is different from all the other brands that I’ve used before. The foundation feels very fine and has small little particles and a little sparkle. The cover-up effect is very good. Thursday, October 8, 2009
  46. 46. Eye Shadow Reviews • ’s Rimmel Eyeshadow Product Review • Rimmel’s color is so much better and more beautiful than I originally imagined ! (maybe that is a little exaggerated, but it’s really much better than I expected, hehe) First, use the white as a base and then smear the tan color and lastly, use the brown color along the eyeline. Using three ordinary colors together, you really can utilize the power of this product. This is how shelf-bought products are supposed to be — use the least amount of money to solve the most pressing needs. Thursday, October 8, 2009
  47. 47. Mascara Reviews • Jiemi’s Rimmel Product Review • The packaging doesn’t look like anything special, a black tube with red lettering. The feel of the package is very solid and it’s the only product I sampled that says it was manufactured in England. After using it, I found that it really lengthens the eyelashes and just two swipes is all you need. Because I use a lot of mascara so I think the value to price ratio is very high. After 5 or 6 swipes you don’t need to worry as you can wear it all day without smudging so it’s very worth buying a couple sticks. The only weakpoint would be the big design of the applicator brush is a bit inconvenient. Thursday, October 8, 2009
  48. 48. Nail Polish Reviews • ’s Rimmel Product Review • I absolutely 100% would buy this nail polish again. It is durable, dries quickly and is beautiful. The colors are all elegant, not like OPI which are too showy. My husband really likes this color on me. I want to emphasize, the effectiveness of this nail polish is much better than OPI. Its color does not fade, it dries quickly, the color is very bright and you do not need to add extra layers to make it brighter. This product was made in Spain so the quality of the product is very safe. Thursday, October 8, 2009

  65. 65. Product Feedback My suggesZons to your product team: • Do something about the lousy brush. Remove it and reduce the price of the  foundaZon. They should source for a good quality syntheZc brush of the same size and  shape which they can sell separately if required. • Please review the shades and bring in lighter shades. Go study the ZA brand shades  which are so universally loved by Asians and match them well. And try and replicate  those shades. The shades that M has brought in are a bit off for a lot of us. The Ochre  is too yellow, the Warm is too peach. You need something in between those two  shades for a "typical" Chinese girl. And you need one or two shades lighter than Ochre  1 (OC1) as well. If you fix the shade issue, there will surely be a greater following of  Chinese girls in this brand hip:// Thursday, October 8, 2009
  66. 66. Brand Ambassadors/ iWord of Mouth Make-up Artist Mr. Xu’s Rimmel Product Review • At first, I wasn’t very serious about trying them, but now that I’ve really used them, I already love the products. As a makeup artist, I’ve tried an innumerable amount of products from the high end to the low end. On the whole, I really never have a new or surprised feeling towards cosmetics, but after using the Rimmel products, I was so impressed: a reasonably priced product that is so great to use… Wow!!
