Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara 2

Rimmel’s new spokes model is Zooey Deschanel. I’d just like it to be known that this is one reason I’d buy more Rimmel Cosmetics. I love this girl. She’s like a living doll. Quite talented mind you but absolutely stunning as well!

Although I will say I’m not too keen on the displays I’ve seen so far featuring her. Check out my Spring 2011 Drugstore Cosmetic Slideshow to see the new Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara display. It doesn’t even look like her, I wouldn’t have it realized it was her had I not squinted and read the display….

Anyone see it? Whatcha think of Zooey’s look?

Jump ahead for the new Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara Review.

Covergirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm Review, Swatches, Photos

Covergirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm 1

What’s the word on the street kids?  Have you seen the Covergirl NatureLuxe Collection at your local drugstore yet? I seen one display but didn’t take a chance to explore it yet as I was rushing in one door and out the other on a Cadbury Dairy Milk run. Did you ever notice Dairy Milks taste all kinda of rancid purchased outside of England. Gag me. But hey when you’re in need, you’re in need!

Anyway!

Covergirl NatureLuxe officially launches this January so you should be seeing more and more displays at your drugstore soon. I recently tried out and adored the foundation. If you tried it, do spread the cheer (or not), curious whatcha you think of it!

Let’s have a look at the Covergirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm.

Ulta Peppermint Swirl 3-in-1 Shower Smoothie Review, Photos

Ulta Peppermint Swirl 3 in 1 Shower Smoothie 2

Seeking last minute stocking stuffers or a friendly hostess gift for a friend? Crack out the Ulta Peppermint Swirl 3-in-1 Shower Smoothie for the win!

This Philosophy dupe (or Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint) can be used as a shower gel, a shampoo, or as a bubble bath and has the sweet, cool, crispy scent of candy canes swirled with vanilla. It’s a touch more minty fresh than vanilla but it does the trick perfectly if you aren’t wanting to splurge on Philosophy version or you’re just missing Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint aka I can’t believe they didn’t bring it back along with lambie, what the hell are they thinking? Oh sorry did I go off on a rant there?

This is a nice jumbo, 24 oz size with a squirt topper for easy squeeze-free lathering up!

Ulta Peppermint Swirl 3 in 1 Shower Smoothie 1

Ulta always has these Smoothies available for buy 2 Two, Get Two Free so check your local Ulta to see what deals they have going at the moment. Online this will set you back a mere $8.99 so it’s a nice budget pick however in store shopping is nesscary at this point if you’re wanting a last minute pressie!

Loves it!

It’s not Philosophy but it’s the next best thing particularly for the beauty budgeters!

Coastal Scents Large Domed Kabuki and Domed Mini Kabuki Brush Review, Photos

Coastal Scents Large Domed Kabuki and Domed Mini Kabuki Brush 4

I’m totally a finger girl. Most everything in the base department gets blended on my face using my fingers. Concealer, primer, foundation, etc…it all gets smoothed on and blended out with my greatest tools, fingers.

Anyone else in the same boat?

You can have your brushes, sponges, and puffs…I got two fingers and they work just as great plus they didn’t cost me anything!

But….

On occasion I can be tempted to whip out a foundation or a concealer brush. For example, I prob couldn’t get through my daily prep without the E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush. Love that thing!

Recently, I decided to try out a new foundation and concealer brush from Coastal Scents.

Let’s take a look!
