Rimmel pricing at Priceline is pretty good - it's not as cheap as, say, BYS but it's definitely nowhere near as expensive as something like Bloom or even Kit. I would say that they fall within acceptable 'impulse buy' parameters.
The lipstick is from the Lasting Finish range, and is shade 166, simply named Temptation. $9.95
|ignore the white line for now!|
It's a slightly darker blue-based red with an almost metallic finish. It goes on very opaque, and slightly glossy, then stays on amazingly - as long as I don't eat anything I can go at least 4 hours without having to touch up (it loses its shine but the colour hardly even fades). It's absolutely non-drying as well . Whilst I wouldn't consider it moisturising per se, it's definitely one of the nicer lipstick formulas I've ever tried. Also it smells faintly of caramel in the tube. I can't smell anything once it's been applied. It's fairly hard to remove - it smears everywhere and leaves some glittery bits, but it doesn't stain.
The eyeliner is a Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil and is 071 or Pure White. $8.95

|now you can look at the white line!|
The gloss is called Stay Glossy and is in the shade Endless Night. $14.95 (gifted) You can tell by the tube that I've had it a while!

Look at all those pretty little shimmers that don't show up at all in person! This gloss is not hugely pigmented, and because my lips are naturally beige-y it doesn't really add any colour to me. I have used this over a red lipliner to do a wear test. It stays on for a couple hours and leaves a nice moisturising sheen on your lips if you eat or drink. I also noticed the lipliner wore 'down' quite evenly under its gloss layer. The doe-foot is now a bit pinky but you can see it has a non-traditional shape.
It has a scooped-in portion on each side, kind of like those 'lip-hugging' ones, and is very flexible. I was quite sceptical of those new-fangled applicators, but it's actually really nice to use! Between the formula and the applicator, I actually went back to Priceline a few weeks ago to buy another, pinkier gloss which I promptly lost and so can't swatch for you.
The powder blush is called 04 Pink Rose. $9.95 (gifted)
This is probably the only packaging gripe I have - this one can be a bit hard to open at times. I guess if you're the kind of person who likes to touch up their blush during the day that's a good thing, because it means it won't open accidentally in your bag. Anyway, this is a light, shimmery rose-pink. I'm not great at undertones but I'd say it seems fairly neutral to me? It's fairly sheer and heavy-ish on the shimmer. It's a great blush to use if you're in a hurry, but I personally prefer my blushes to be either matte or have fine shimmer in them. The shimmer in this is a wee bit too chunky for me and becomes even MORE apparent when you try to blend it!. I have considered using this as a highlight (see above re: sheer and buildable) but haven't got around to that yet.
