Better Than False Lashes!

Rimmel Scandal’eyes is definitely my favorite mascara. The big brush makes quick application a snap and it makes my eyelashes so full and long it looks like I have false lashes on. The best part of this amazing mascara it never flakes and looks great all day long.  All this for less than $7 !

Rimmel Scandal’eyes OUR BIGGEST BRUSH EVER!

The new MaxDensity brush, that’s 50% larger* and thicker, covers your lashes with attention – from corner to corner. Bristles now flex in to deposit mascara and out to comb through clumps, so volume will scream. With scandalous eye opening volume, this mascara should need a license.

Watch false lashes become a thing of the past, as ScandalEyes mascara becomes the ultimate beauty weapon in your make-up bag. This Rimmel revolution has 3x the collagen* for plumper, sculpted lashes, 3x the keratin* for strong and healthy lashes and… 3x the attitude to guarantee scandalous behaviour!For lashes so luscious it’s almost criminal! Unleash the wand of Rimmel London’s new ScandalEyes mascara. Start rumours, make heads turn and if anyone asks… you did it!

New! The Kate Collection Lipsticks

I was a little shocked by how much I really love this lipstick. The color I was sent to try was 08 and its one of those colors that looks good with anything, it has quickly become my go to lipstick choice. The formula goes on creamy but the color lasts a really long time without fading. Can’t wait to try more colors from the line.

Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss delivers full-bodied, all-day color with an added Black Diamond Pigment Complex for even more radiant color. The complex reflects like never before, creating gorgeous tones that leave lips irresistible. Natural moisturizers deliver a rich, creamy texture that stays put, while vitamins C and E provide essential antioxidant protection.

Kate’s collection includes:
01 – a deep brick red
04 – a royal purple
08 – a dusty rose
12 – a candy coral
14 – a blushed nude

Mascara Review: 2 to SKIP – 1 to KEEP!

I was at the store last weekend, where I saw there was a sale on Rimmel London mascaras. Buy one get one free! Who could pass that up? Not me! So I grabbed two mascaras that I thought I’d like to try.

So I sit down, put all my other makeup on (foundation, eyeshadow, etc.) and I pull out Max Volume Flash, my new mascara. I pull the wand out of the tube – and immediately I HATE IT. It pulled out a TON of mascara, and the brush was all gooped up with black mascara. I scraped it off, and tried to put it on, and I swear I hated it in two strokes. It’s awful. It doesn’t do a darn thing that it says it will. I’ve tried a lot of mascaras, and this one might be one of the worst. Look at that packaging! 14X volume! Fast – no mess lashes! Collagen and Keratin enriched! Their biggest brush ever! Psht. No good. I put the lid back on – and tossed it in the trash.

Then I decide to open the next mascara I bought, Glam’Eyes. I should have known I wouldn’t like it just by looking at the wand. I hate small brushes. I like a nice – thick brush. But I decided to try it anyway, and I didn’t like it at all. Again, everything it promises on the packaging is complete BS. Talk about false advertising! It’s practically the same exact mascara as Max Volume Flash – just in a different tube. Definitely NOT worth my money, and I won’t be trying any more Rimmel mascaras any time soon. I know Erin has tried one that she likes – but I’d definitely tell you guys to skip these two. They’re no good.

So I can’t leave you with all bad news, can I? How about 1 mascara I think you SHOULD try?

I’m absolutely in love with L’Oreal’s Millions of Lashes! I have looooong struggled with drugstore mascaras, because in my opinion, they can’t stand up to some of the more expensive versions like Diorshow. Aaaand then I tried L’Oreal’s Voluminous Million Lashes. It was love at first stroke.

I adore this mascara. For only $8, you’re getting what you could get for $30+ on a more expensive brand. It goes on smoothly, it isn’t clumpy, the brush is fantastic, it doesn’t flake, it actually DOES make your lashes look longer and fuller. In my opinion, it’s one of the few drugstore mascaras that actually live up to the hype. If you’re looking for a new mascara to try – try this guy. You won’t be sorry!
