Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Fall 2012

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Fall 2012

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner look familiar?

Probably because Lorac recently introduced a similiar gel liner as well as a few other brands both drugstore and mid range.

But either way you might be tempted by its fairly inexpensive price tag.

E.L.F. Studio Mascara & Shadow Shield Might Be a Must Have Beauty Tool!

E.L.F. Studio Mascara Shadow Shield
I did a review on Shadow Shields a dozen years ago. They were one of the handiest tools I ever had around me back than as I was quite playful with pigments and looser mediums at the time.

Recently, E.L.F. introduced their very own version of a “shadow shield” and I must say it looks like a handy tool to have hanging out in your beauty arsenal.

Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quad

Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quads are a new range of shadow palettes from the brand available in four shades. At a glance these were an exciting launch as they looked like something you’d seeing coming out of Asia.

The palettes are portrayed as a shimmery shade selection in promo images that offer a luminous finish to eyes. I think Maybelline successfully captured “luminous” here but the formula might not be everyone’s bag.

Hmmm considering I have dull skin I decided to try it.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick Review & Swatches

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick 1

I realize I shared my love of the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick in a recent review but I hauled a few more shades so I thought I’d do some more swatches and a little follow up post about these.

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick

A reader recently mentioned hauling Cotton Candy Pink (believe that’s the shade name) and didn’t like the formula at all. I personally loved all the shades I tried so I was surprised. But actually, she’s right, the consistency on some of the shades is a bit different and I ran into issues with Blushing Sequin as it wasn’t as lovely as other shades I owned and loved.
