It’s already starting to heat up in the UK, with Summer around the corner. With Summer, brings the exciting months of music festivals! Whether you’re going to a festival this Summer, or just want to achieve a summery look for a BBQ in the garden with friends and family, keep reading to see the Rimmel X Love Island makeup look!
Rimmel X Love Island Collaboration
Love Island is FINALLY back on our screens! I have been sent some products courtesy of Influenster, from Rimmel’s collaboration with Love Island. Superdrug and Rimmel are both sponsors of the popular TV programme this year.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Wow Wings Mascara
I received the NEW Scandaleyes Wow Wings Mascara, which has a unique winged brush. I love this brush, as it tails off towards the end, which helps me get to those pesky small lashes in the inner corner of my eye. It also helped to seamlessly blend by natural eyelashes with the fake eyelashes I used for this festival look.
Love Island Tattoo Transfers
I can’t actually remember the last time I used tattoo transfers, and I will admit that I was very nervous about putting these on my face. It’s hard to make the tattoos look symmetrical on the face, so this was the main worry. HOWEVER, I took the plunge and stuck the leaf tattoos on the tops of my cheekbones. The design came out so much better than I imagined. I’m sure you can be the judge of that by letting me know what you thought in the comments below!
I used a wet kitchen towel to apply it to my face, and it took under 30-seconds for the design to transfer to my face. It also doesn’t rub off easily, unless you use a makeup wipe like I did at the end of the day to rub it off. So, this would be fantastic for all-day wear at a festival!
Rimmel Wonder’Swipe Liner & Shadow
I was so excited to try the new Rimmel Wonder’Swipe, as it is a 2-in-1 eyeliner and eyeshadow! You basically draw a wing like you would with eyeliner, and swipe over the line with your finger to smudge it out into an eyeshadow. It is a little messy when you first get used to it, but it blends in well with normal eyeshadow. The product is meant to be long-lasting with up to 10-hour of wear.
The three colours I received were the 002 Instafamous, 010 Cool AF, and 014 Fashun. However, in this makeup look I used the 002 Instafamous to create a gold, and pinky-brown smoky eyeshadow look.

If you’re wondering what other products I was using to create the look, I have listed them in the product carousel below. They do contain affiliate links, which means that a small amount of commission is generated if you do purchase. But, this won’t cost you any more to buy the products! It just helps me to fund the running of The Confessions of an Online Shopaholic.
Final Thoughts on the Rimmel X Love Island Collection
I’ll be honest, I am absolutely IN LOVE with the collaboration between Rimmel and Love Island. I’m normally a very subtle kinda gal in the way I do my makeup, and hair, but it was a great experience to step out of my comfort zone. Let me know what you thought of the space buns with beachy waves, and the false lashes in the comments!
Do you also have any favourite contestants on this year’s Love Island? I have to say that Kendall is my favourite so far, she seems very lovely and down-to-earth.
