Rimmel (commonly known as Rimmel London) is a British cosmetics brand, now owned by Coty, Inc. The House of Rimmel was founded by Eugène Rimmel as a perfumery in 1834, in Regent Street, London, England. Within a year of opening, Eugène Rimmel came to create many makeup products, including his best known, mascara. It gave rise to the term 'Rimmel' being used to mean 'mascara' in many Mediterranean languages.
With creative success with these products, Rimmel London began creating products such as pomades and mouth rinses. Today, the brand is one of the world's most popular make-up producers.
Rimmel's company motto is "Live the London Look". The faces of Rimmel were Kate Moss, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Lily Cole, Ayumi Hamasaki, and ITV's Holly Willoughby. In October 2009, it was announced that Jerry Hall, Georgia May Jagger, and Canadian supermodel, Coco Rocha, were set to join to the line up of spokeswomen.
Within days of Rocha's first campaign release, Rimmel announced that they had signed Zooey Deschanel, Solange Knowles, and Alejandra Ramos Munoz would help the brand launch into the global marketplace.
In September 2013, Rimmel announced their collaboration with British singer, Rita Ora, for makeup collections. In April 2016, Rimmel named British model, Cara Delevingne, as one of the faces of their brand.
According to Statista, Rimmel was the best-selling nail varnish brand in Great Britain, an estimated 3.3 million users in 2019.
