We’re fans of Rimmel for fusing fun, quality and affordability into their beauty products. Also because they’re so cutting-edge that it’s hard to believe the brand started nearly 200 years ago – the company’s founder Eugene Rimmel started experimenting with fragrances and colour in the early 1800s. In partnership with his father he established the House of Rimmel in London in 1834.
Eugene Rimmel also invented mascara, and became established as a master of perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and bath essences, with many international royal warrants, including Queen Victoria of England.
Today Rimmel continues to expand and stay ahead of the curve. Kate Moss is the face of Rimmel London, and embodies the brand personality and its values: she is the punk princess who breaks the beauty rules.
If you’re a beauty who knows no boundaries, then here’s something that’ll surely brighten up your day: Rimmel is giving 4 lucky ELLE readers a hamper worth R250 each. Each hamper contains: Rimmel Scandaleyes SHOW OFF Mascara, Rimmel Lasting Finish Blush, Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation and Rimmel Vinyl Max Lip Gloss!
To win a Rimmel hamper, tell us which Rimmel product is your beauty-bag must-have, and why.
This competition is now closed. Congrats to our four lucky winners: Jackie Kasner, Mary E, Shanice Naidoo, and Greer Alexander . We'll be in touch shortly!
