PR Sample | When I came back from Switzerland two weeks ago, I received a small but very nice package from Rossmann. I found in it the Limited Edition “Shades of Marble” by Rival de Loop, which came out in August 2018. Since no information about the collection was in the package, of course I googled first. In doing so, I noticed that the products are no longer available online. I suppose, as it is already November and the lipsticks and Co. were already published in August that they’re out of the assortment. Of course, the question now arises for me: why are they sending me a collection that can not be bought anymore?! Maybe the package was late… Who knows, who knows. Nevertheless, I’m really excited about the colors of this collection, nude and red shades are my favorite. I especially liked the two-colored lipsticks.
Because not always everything is, as it seems at first glance, I have decided to wirte a review about it – it’s such a long time ago since I did my last. Also the colors of these products are perfect for autumn and November is totally autumn. Maybe you can find the stuff in one or the other shop, so again: who knows, who knows.
The Multi-Marble Palette contains 8 pretty colors. The tones are perfect for contouring and highlighting, but they can also be perfectly used as eyeshadows. The pigmentation of the palette is also amazingly good! Especially the bright tones have catched me, the shimmering looks so wonderful on the skin.
The Lip Topper gives a soft glow. This can be used as a top coat or normal lip gloss. Even though it looks pink, it can be worn on dark lipsticks like the ones in the collection.
The mascara is black, which I think is really great. I have only one mascara, which has a different color – it’s pink and that was a gift. The brush gives the lashes extra volume, extra length and a stunning swing.
As already mentioned, the lipsticks with marble effect are my favorites of this LE. The nuances are 01 Red and 02 Nude. For me, the two look more like Red and Burgundy to be honest. Besides, the names are so uncreative, but that’s not important. What I particularly like about the mascara is that it is not too fluid like most. It is often the case that you have to use the mascara for a while until it is perfect. The color is very opaque, I find this especially with dark colors, as here, very important. My lips are lighter outside as inside and not opaque lipstick looks super funny. What I do not like about the product is that the cover does not close properly. The cover of both lipsticks felt oft many times – unwanted. Also, you can not see at first glance what kind of color the lipstick has. It has neither on the bottom or top a sticker in the color of the lipstick. There is also no sign with the name of it written somewhere. Only on a small sticker is the number 01 or 02. If you have many lipsticks, this can be quite confusing.
Matt and Long Lasting Lipliner
Matching the lipsticks, this LE also has lipliner. The names are exactly the same as the lipsticks: 01 Red and 02 Nude. The pins are for unscrewing, which I find quite handy, as these then never need to be sharpened. The pens are very smooth to apply and the colors matched perfectly to the two lipsticks.
Apart from two trifles, which I already mentioned above, I am enthusiastic about this LE. As I said, I’m not sure if somehow you still get products but if you do I can totally recommend these. Especially the lipsticks are perfect for fall / winter season.
If you still don’t get enough of the theme beauty, you should read my article about my summer beauty favorites. I know, I know it’s already fall but in it are also a lot products for all seasons.
I would like to thank Rossman and Rival de Loop for these products provided free of charge
