June is nearly here and, for us, that means just one thing: ditching our social lives in favour of a nightly Love Island fix, and we couldn’t be happier about it. To get us in the mood, a few of us here at the DARE office decided to give the brand spanking new Rimmel London Love Island Tattoos a try and we weren’t disappointed. They’re fun, summery and perfect for the festival season. If you don't believe us, just check out how good the Islanders looked during their partaaaay in the villa

Cute, quirky designs made from festival-esque gold and silver foil – what’s not to like? I went all out. I couldn’t decide which one I liked best, so I used two or three (or six!) of the tats to make my very own full-on hand design. That’s what I love most about them – they all look great together, so it’s easy to come up with a design that makes the area of your body you choose to decorate look downright awesome. And I can assure you they’re very sturdy temporary tats, so you don’t need to worry about them rubbing off easily. All I can say is that we’ve come a hell of a long way since the superhero temp tats you used to get with your Cheetos…

Back in my early teens, I remember applying cheap butterfly and heart tattoos onto my skin. Peel, place, hold arm under the tap and voila! Fast forward to 2018 and Rimmel has brought back all my childhood dreams. I’ve just spent the afternoon applying the temporary tats all over my arms, and I’m happy to say they still bring me the same joy they did 10 years ago. These little guys are perfect – and mean you don’t have to force yourself to go under the needle and will defs make sure you have zero tattoo regrets!

I’m all for rockin’ the glitter at festivals, but not so keen on finding it weeks afterwards in my hair/clothes/fluffy socks. So when I found I could swap the shimmer for mess-free tattoo transfers, I knew I’d found my festival calling. As a keen pina colada fan (OK, SpongeBob fan), I opted for a pineapple tat and applied it to my wrist with a splash of water. It was impressively easy to apply, and stayed on for a whole five days. Safe to say, these tats have defs replaced glitter in my festival look book.
