Rimmel London makes some of my favorite products. All of their products are quality and perfect for the girl on a budget. I’ve been patiently waiting for them to release their Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss Lipsticks and their Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal. Well, they are finally here! I also picked up a few Maybelline products: Color Tattoo Metals, The Rocket Volum’ Express Mascara, and Colorsensational Vivid Lipstick. I got all these products at my local Wal-Mart.
Read on for my thoughts on these products!
I got two Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss Lipsticks in 101 and 102. These lipsticks are not actually matte, but do have a slight cream finish. These, unlike the original Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipsticks, smell wonderful!
I got the Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 005 Nude and 010 Silver. Of all of these new products, Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal (in 005 Nude) is my favorite. It’s the dupe for MAC’s Chromagraphic Eyeliner in NC15/NC20. The Chromagraphic Eyeliner retails for $15.00, whereas Rimmel’s Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal retails for $3.97. I know, what a steal!
My next product is a new release from Maybelline Color Tattoo. I use the Maybelline Color Tattoo’s as a base, and it really makes my eyeshadow pop and last longer. I purchased 2 colors from the Metal Collection: Barely Branded and Inked in Pink. These Color Tattoos are said to rival MAC’s Paint Pots, and retail for $5.94. Be sure to get these from a Wal-Mart, as I have seen these in drugstores for around $6.99.
I also picked up Maybelline The Rocket Volum’ Express Mascara (I replace my mascara every 6 months). I’ve been using this mascara for a few weeks, and I really like it. It separates, and volumizes lashes and really creates a falsie effect.
The last new product I picked up was Maybelline’s Color Sensational Vivid Lipstick. These lipsticks are everything! The finish is super moisturizing, and these colors come off almost fluorescent! They’re made with neon-coated pigments and honey nectar to keep lips feeling nourished. My only issue with these lipsticks is that the color is quite opaque (not as opaque as a gloss). They also stain a little.
Note: Brazen Berry does appear slightly opaque. If you are looking for a more pigmented purple, try MAC’s Violetta or apply a purple liner.
You guys picked up any of these products yet?
