Happy New Years love!
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a great New Years! Forgive me for being so MIA, I had too many things going on but that’s all about to change! I have some exciting news that I’ll post soon (possibly next week) and I’m so excited for it. Anyone have any good resolutions? Me for one, I plan to post more than last year , at least 3 times a week.
I haven’t done a Mani Monday in forever so from now on Monday’s posts shall be about nails. 🙂
Today I’m wearing Rimmel London Salon Pro with Lycra in the shade 711 punk rock. Sadly, I believe this shade is discontinued, hence the 75% off at CVS. It’s a long lasting cream purple that has a gel like finish.
The only con about the packaging is the brush itself. It’s really small compared to other nail brushes. I feel like the top is bigger than the applicator itself. Otherwise, I do love the color and it indeed is a long wearing polish.
*On my index finger, I’m wearing Sinful Color 922 Frenzy. It’s a nice glittery top coat. 🙂
And can we mention the background?! That is actually my front yard, it rained yesterday and those are all leaves on the ground. It’s like fall in the middle of winter when I see this background.
Influenster and Rimmel were kind enough to send me a complimentary Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara that was in my Rose VoxBox. This comes into stores November 2013!
Here are a few pictures showing how the wand but the photos don’t do it justice at all! lol
It’s an hourglass shaped wand where the middle is thinner.
I only have two cons I have with this is that
1. when you take out the wand, there’s so much excess mascara.
2. It’s really hard to apply the mascara on the bottom lashes. I feel like the wand is really big that I might poke my eye with it especially if you have long bottom lashes.
But other than that, I love it! It gives an illusion that your eyes have a wide look (which is great for me since I have small eyes). *Forgive my blah eyebrows*
As you can tell, there’s quite a difference when I’m not wearing the mascara and when I am.
-Tightline your eyes before you apply the mascara
-Use an eyelash curler before you apply the mascara
-If you can find it, buy an eyelash guard where you can place it on your eye as you apply the mascara so you don’t get any excess on your lids.
I wanted to try a makeup look with the mascara so I tried this out!
It’s the WetnWild 2013 Holiday Limited Edition “No Neutral Ground”.
What do you guys think? 🙂
Everyone has a special routine when they put their makeup on. I’m pretty simple when it comes to my daily makeup routine. I usually use:
For the Eyes:
Milani Liquid Eye in 01 Black: Tightline and waterline
MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder: Tightline and waterline
Wet n Wild Mega Length Mascara
Maybelline Color Tattoos 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze
RIMMEL ScandalEyes waterproof Kohl in 004 Taupe: I use it for the waterline
Benefit Erase Paste in Medium: I use it as a concealer and under eye brightener
Fixline Eyeliner Gel in Brown
A matte brown eyeshadow that I use for my eyebrows with an angled brush
Maybelline Dream Nude Airform Foundation in 250 Pure Beige
NYX Blush in PB03 Angel
And for the Lips
I use the eos lip balm in lemon drop along with Smith’s Rosebud Salve Balm
Don’t you just hate going to a store knowing what you’re going to buy but you end up buying more things than you expected?! Sadly I was a victim to this, this past week.
A book called About Face by Scott Barnes ( a makeup artist) 🙂
