A Rimmel 3 for 2 haul & review

A small Rimmel haul and review of the products I picked up a few weeks back!

Having a finishing spray is a must for me in the warmer months and I wanted to give some time off to my L'Oréal Infallible Fixing Mist and try something new from the drugstore. I chose this cucumber scented priming and setting spray from Rimmel's #Insta range. 
After giving it a few weeks of testing out in both functions I can say that I enjoy it more as a primer.  
Now, as a setting spray, if you are looking for a cooling, refreshing mist for the hot summer days I would 100% recommend this, but if you want to get a few more hours of wear out of your foundation and something to lock your makeup in place and keep you matte I wouldn't waste my money on this and would get the L'Oréal one! 
On the sidenote the Rimmel spray is also great if you accidentally applied too much powder, as a few sprays of it will give you a more natural look!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Make Up Foundation (£8.99)

I picked up the Wake Me Up Anti-Fatigue Foundation in Light Porcelain because I wanted to get it in a shade closer to my skin colour. I already have the shade Ivory which is way too dark on me so the mix of these two creates the perfect colour for my skin tone. 
When I got home and started comparing the two bottles I had to realise that they are not exactly the same. My new shade has skin-brightening Vitamin C apparently but other than the marketing I can't notice anything different in the formula. It is a medium coverage foundation, that leaves you with a nice, natural looking finish. Not matte, not dewy either, but a bit glowy. 
Over the warmer months I would reach for it when I know I have a shorter day because on my oily skin after a few hours it get's too shiny and it starts melting off. Not the best look...
I think for me this would be best as a winter base.

I am always on the lookout for a new mascara so if I'm unsure on what to get as a third product my choice usually falls on a mascara I haven't tried before. This one has the Cara Delavigne's Limited Edition Camo Collection packaging but I believe it is part of the normal range as well.
The brush has plastic bristles that doesn't pick too much product up and the formula is not too wet so it is very easy to work with it. You need to work the lashes a bit longer to get the desired effect but eventually, you do get both volume and length with this mascara. And it's super cheap! What more could you want?

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts on them?
