Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in #29

I feel like it has been forever since I did a post on a lipstick, so I thought I would share with you guys a newer lipstick that I have received from my boyfriends mom. This is one of the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipsticks, in the shade #29. 

The shade 29 is a beautiful magenta berry color. It looks more purple in the tube, but once swatched, it's a very beautiful berry color. I love the formula of these lasting finish lipsticks. They apply so easily and are very opaque. I do believe they have wonderful lasting power, just like the name says. For me it does last around the 8 hour mark, which for a lipstick from the drug store, its awesome. Once it does wear off you can see a little hint of the color left behind. 

You can purchase this lipstick basically anywhere that sells drug store makeup. They are also very affordable. At Walgreen's I believe they are around $4.99-$5.00. I own a few other shades, and I am always impressed with the color pay off and formula.

Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss in Kinky

I was so excited when I found out Urban Decay was going to be releasing some new glosses. I actually do not own too many Urban Decay lip products, so I knew I had to start adding more to my collection, starting with one of there new Revolution High-Color Lip Glosses. They had 14 different shades to choose from, and it was so hard for me to limit myself to just one for now. Since they are $22.00, I didn't want to pick up a bunch if I wasn't going to love the product. The shade I chose was Kinky

Kinky is a beauty nude pink. Whenever there is a new product, I always go towards more of the natural shades and I thought this color would be perfect. It is more of a pinky nude then a brown nude on my pale complexion. The thing I noticed right away in stores was the amazing packaging. I love the shape of the bottle as well as the beautiful lid. It reminds me a lot of the lipsticks since the packaging color matches. As a makeup collector I love when my makeup matches. As for the product it self, I will break it down to some pros and cons.

  • The pigmentation is incredible. You only need to dip the brush in once in order to get amazing color pay off and it's not streaky at all.
  • The applicator is amazing. It has a doe foot applicator, but it isn't a typical doe foot, it has a little point on the tip that really helps when applying the product.
  • The packaging is on point.
  • The formula of the lipstick is thick, but it is not sticky at all, which is a huge plus.
You are probably wondering why I didn't list any cons. But I honestly do not have any. The only thing I can say is that these are a little pricey, but I think they are well worth it.

You can find these lip glosses anywhere Urban Decay is sold for $22.00. Let me know if you have tried any of these before!

New Rimmel London I love My Lips Lip Balm's Review & Swatches

I bet you are thinking the exact same thing that I was when I saw these in the store. I noticed right away that these look just like the Maybelline baby lips. But oddly, I think these are much more cuter. These are the new Rimmel London I Love My Lips, lip balm. Now I am not sure how new these are, but I do know they are new to the USA. I found mine at my local Walmart and they only had two left. I didn't see a display or anything, they were just found in two random spots in the makeup isle. 

The two I purchased are in the shades Pink Blush and Berry Blush. Pink Blush is obviously the light pink one, and it says "Keep Calm and Kiss", I thought that was the cutest thing in the world. I also love the color combination. And on the Berry Blush it says "Keep Calm and Rock", which is also super adorable. 

The main difference between these and the Baby Lips, is that the balm is shaped like a actual lipstick. Which I actually enjoy better because its easier to apply. I also found these to be very moisturizing. They do have a little tint to them. Which I like in a balm because if I am not in the mood to add a lipstick or gloss, it just as a little touch to the lips. 

I am not sure how soon these will show up in other stores, but I would check your local Walmart. They were only $2.50, which I believe are a little bit cheaper then the Maybelline Baby Lips. I really hope I can find the other ones because I really enjoy these two.

NEW Limited Edition Wet N Wild Blush & Glow Trio in Sunset Junction

I have been on the hunt for some new Spring/Summer 2015 makeup collections, and while I was at my local Walgreen's I was hit with so many new collections for this season. If you follow me on Instagram, you would know I am a sucker for limited edition programs, and if they are from Wet N Wild, I must get them! I think Wet N Wild always come up with the best products for each season.

While I was at Walgreen's they had a display of these blush & glow trio's. They are part of there Spring 2015 Silver Lake Collection. This collection comes with 3 different trio's to choose from. Sadly, while I was looking at the display, mine was missing one of the trio's. So instead of getting just two, I only ended up getting one for now. This one was the lightest of all the trio's, so I thought this one would fit my complexion a lot better then the other one. 

Sunset Junction:

  • Highlighter- is a beautiful champagne highlight with a pink undertone, that has a ton of shimmer and amazing pigmentation. I know this will be a highlighter that I will have to be careful with because the pigmentation was amazing and the formula is really buttery, so a little product will go such a long way.
  • Blush- is a beautiful mid tone pink. It also has a ton of shimmer and just look at that pigmentation, it's incredible. I also found that this blush is super easy to blend, so even thought it's very pigmented, it will be easy to blend out on the cheeks.
  • Bronzer- is a shimmery bronzer with a orange undertone. So it does have more of a warm tone, and I normally go towards cool tone colors, so I will need to be extremely careful when applying this to my face, but I find the color to be very pretty.
I am always impressed with these new collections from Wet N Wild. I thought all 3 products were very pigmented, easy to blend, and buttery. Even with the shimmer in each product, I did not notice a lot of fall out which is great! If you are looking for a new fun product to try out this Spring, I would recommend trying this one, or any of the others that you would feel would go better with your skin tone.
