Review: Rimmel Kate Sculpting & Highlighting Kit

Designed by Kate Moss, the Sculpting & Highlighting kit is one of the recent offerings from the Rimmel brand. It contains three complimentary shades designed to highlight, sculpt and define (blush). From the Rimmel London website, only one shade seems to be available in Australia – Coral Glow – but from various overseas beauty blogs, I can see that it is available in 3 different shades overseas.

Packaging…ok, it looks like nothing special, being plastic and all, but the rose gold makes for a nice touch.

For my medium to olive skintone, this Coral Glow is quite complimentary. The highlight shade is a soft beige-champagne with subtle shimmer. The contour/bronzer shade is quite warm with gold shimmer but it’s not too chunky so works well as a contour or bronzer. The blush is a soft peachy-pink coral which gives my tanned skin a slight hint of colour.

This palette is more suited to fair to medium skin but it does give me a nice natural look for everyday use. A bit of a warning though – when I am picking up the product with my blush, there’s some fallout. You can actually see a bit of the powdery-ness (not a word but you know….) in the swatch pic above with the bronzer/contour shade. Not too much but definitely something to be aware of. In terms of lasting power, the blush disappears throughout the day but the bronzer/contour shade lasted a full day of wear – same with the highlighter.

At the moment, Coral Glow seems to be the only shade available in Australia. Here’s hoping the other two shades will arrive on our shores soon!

You can pick this up for $16.95 at Priceline, Priceline Pharmacy, Target, Kmart, BIG W, selected pharmacies and selected Coles and Woolworths.
