Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch Review & Swatches

Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch

Wake me up before you go go with a little Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch. These creamy, lightweight mousses blend into skin creating radiance and glow in a simple swipe.

I’m scared of highlighters and was actually terrified of these as well since I don’t do shimmer well but they are actually quite nifty.

Take a look!

Loving the NYX Center Stage Jumbo Eye Pencil Collection

NYX Center Stage Jumbo Eye Pencil Collection

If I didn’t have most of them I’d be all over the NYX Center Stage Jumbo Eye Pencil Collection ($20)! This six piece set includes full size NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in a range of colors for $20 (it would be $27 if you purchased them separately).

Jesse’s Girl 9 Pan Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Jesse’s Girl 9 Pan EyeShadow Palette 2

The Jesse’s Girl 9 Pan Eyeshadow Palette is quite a beauty budget pick at mere $3.99 each. And I actually reviewed one of these not so long ago in a land far, far away…and felt like the formula wasn’t TOO bad.

Recently, I was picking things out of my to be reviewed pile and realized I also had the Tickled Pink version of the Jesse’s Girl 9 Pan Eyeshadow Palette which I hadn’t yet reviewed.

Unfortunately, my original experience with the shadow was so so, not bad but with Tickle Pink things went a little down hill!

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Medley Palette Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Medley Palette Summer 2013

The Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Medley Palette ($4.99) were released int two shades selections exclusively at Walgreens locations for Summer 2013. I recently hauled and posted about them earlier in June but never got a chance to review them until now.

Honestly, I didn’t really love them for a number of reasons. Wet n Wild had a consistent run with me about two years ago with an improvement in quality and some great releases. I feel the brand has digressed with recent releases and the quality has gone down and the releases are highly repetitive. The ColorIcon Palettes in particular were fantastic but releases for example like Fergie’s Centerstage PhotoOp Eyeshadow Palettes are a joke.

These Medley Eyeshadow Palettes are another reason the brand loses points with me unfortunately.

Milani Cosmetics Coming Up Roses Powder Blush for Fall 2013

Milani Cosmetics Coming Up Roses Powder Blush

Milani Cosmetics Coming Up Roses Powder Blush is a rather fun new collection of blushes that will be popping up in stores for a very limited time this Fall.

According to Milani the Coming Up Roses Powder Blush will be available during the month of August at CVS, Walgreens, Meijer, Fredy Meyers, and online at www.milanicosmetics.com.

Shades:

  • Romantic Rose
  • Flora Passion
  • Warm Petals
  • Bella Rosa

I’m looking forward to these! They quite remind me of the Milani Illuminating Face Powders that were released a year or so ago! They also kinda remind me of the NYC New York Color Cosmetics Berry Bloom Collection! Remember those cute lip creams released with that collection? Why does NYC never do cute collections like that anymore?!

I admit they caught my attention because of the cute rose design but I really am interest in Flora Passion which looks like a rather lovely lighter coral.

I probably don’t need another blush but when these launch I’ll be online to be the first to purchase!

Thoughts?

Do share!
