Hello, 
A viewer of my blog saw my post on Revlon lipstick swatches and stated that Revlon Fabulous Fig is a different color from the swatch. From my swatch Revlon Fabulous Fig is a dark deep pink with a tint of mauve. Here is a swatch of it.

FOTD: Comme Le Printemps

Hello Beauties,

If you know me personally I love vintage accessories and artistic pieces. I am a colorful nerd in this world. I never limit myself when it comes to color. People will tell you, you can't rock this bright color with that other bold color, best believe I am one who will do just that rock mix match bold colors with each other and give the 'I don't care' or better yet 'calm the f*&#down' face. Today I embrace "comme le printemps" translation "like spring" cause c'est un monde diff√©rent (it's a different world).












It's A Different World!!

FOTD: Before Twilight

Hello Beauties,

I did a purchase with TKB Trading about couple weeks ago. They have awesome Micas/ pigment samples baggies for incredible cheap prices with great quantity to mix eye shadows and other beauty products. I have been itching to use one of my TKB Trading Micas with my Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo for Summer 2013 ( there is a post with swatches on these Limited Edition Color Tattoo ).

FOTD: Kiss of Life Prom Series Pt. 2

Hello Beauties,

This is my second part of the Prom series I started. This look depicts a more pop of color for the ladies who don't want to be all neutral but more on the bold side. If you are wearing green, pink or purple, you could opt out the blue in my look for any color that coordinates with your dress. Also I went in for a red lip which red is a color that is sexy and universal. I would suggest if you wish to wear red to go for a matte or semi matte color.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick

(Picture heavy)


Hello beauties,

Rimmel Kate Moss lasting Finish lipsticks as stated on the Rimmel website are  Sumptuously Rich Matte colour with a sublime comfort. Ruby Powder enriched formula. Intense velvet colour all day! "

There are ten shades available and I have seven in my stash. Some of the formula varies, in my opinion some feel rather like a cream and others a semi matte. Rimmel states that they are matte but when I think of matte, I think of a drying texture and these are not so. Some colors glide on like butter, whilst others take more application to get an intense opacity. None the less I really like some the colors but I wish there was more color varieties. Kate Moss please if your reading, we need purples and maybe throw in a orange shade too. I love the smell of these as compared to the old lipstick smell from the lasting finish collection. The smell is more on the vanilla side that is very much bearable.

Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal

*Most items in this post were sent to me from the P.R. of Rimmel Cosmetics for review purpose. I am in no way paid or affiliated with the company.



Hello Beauties,

Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal are intense in color and creamy in texture. Rimmel offers ten colors but I will be featuring six of the colors. Rimmel state that these eyeliners, traditionally refererred to now as kohl kajal are long lasting shocking color intensity with kohl Britania High intensity color for an instant color impact. Ultra smooth & creamy formula that glides on easily Waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof, humidity-proof and scandal- proof.






L-R: Silver :: Brown :: Sparkling Black :: Purple :: Light Blue :: Nude



L-R: Nude :: Light Blue :: Purple :: Sparkling Black :: Brown :: Silver






Conclusion

These Kohl Kajal are very intense in color and they are extremely creamy and soft in texture. I have used the Nude color on previous looks and I love that I have found a Nude color that can be used on my waterline that doesn't tug and has high color payoff and is waterproof meaning it says put on my waterline. I will be using these mostly for my waterline for an added pop of color. However, I can't wait to use these in my upcoming makeup looks and there will be a more thorough review on these products after maximum uses. My favorite colors so far are Nude, Sparkling Black and Purple.


To Buy: Walgreens, Kmart, CVS, Target etc

Conclusion

So far these are pretty soft, not tugging on the lids. They are definitely waterproof and takes some rubbing with a makeup wipe to come off. The colors are intense, especially the bright colors. I really like the: Blamed Blue, Tempting Turquoise and Paranoid Purple.
