Rimmel's story started back in 1834 when young pioneer Eugene Rimmel and his father set up House of Rimmel. Beauty during this time was a very different story; mascara, for instance, was made with mercury and perfumes were called vinegar. Luckily for us today, Eugene created the first non-toxic mascara and redefined it the world over.
It is because of Eugene's drive that boundaries were pushed over the following 100 years. Beauty had a new standard to reach, thanks to House of Rimmel. Today, the brand still draws inspiration from Eugene's inventive ways to create new looks and tools and reshape 'the norm'.
Rimmel believes in allowing you to define your look and find your unique style. Their range of resourceful cosmetics enables you to create a bold statement, natural look and everything in between.
