Rimmel London Makeup

Getting ready for your holiday dinner or a New Year’s bash has never been more fun with Rimmel London’s great makeup products. Their Scandaleyes Mascara and Eyeliner are long-lasting and so easy to apply. For a gorgeous winter-time glow, try out Rimmel’s Natural Bronzer or one of their gorgeous lip colors.

There are few better feelings than that of freshly shaved legs! Pure Silk comes in a variety of great scents and is extremely moisturizing. Perfect for our harsh Minnesota winters! Pro tip: Throw your bedsheets in with your next load of laundry, shave your legs and then crawl into bed. Smooth legs + clean sheets = Best. Feeling. Ever.
