I can’t remember the last time I went shopping for beauty products, but last week I stopped into the drugstore and came across a few beauty products on sale that I wanted to try.
While wandering the aisles, I came across the Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss lipsticks. I have never tried Rimmel’s lipsticks before but these were half price and I adore the shades. I picked up 107 Rossetto and 111 Kiss of Life, which I swatched to show just how gorgeous the shades really are. These lipsticks are said to deliver high intensity colour for up to 8 hours, and they live up to this. I wore Rossetto to work a few days last week and left 8 hours later with the same coat of lipstick, with minimal fading of the colour. Plus, the lasting power is unaffected by eating or drinking, so minimal to no touch-ups were required. Each of these lipsticks was CAN $4.99, which is a bloomin’ good price, especially for lipsticks that are such beautiful shades and last so long.
I also purchased the limited edition NYX Dream Catchers Dusk Til Dawn Palette. This features a range of 10 nude eyeshadow shades that can be blended and layered to create a wide variety of makeup looks. I have been using this palette for the last week and so far I am really impressed by the high pigmentation. I would definitely recommend a primer though to increase the staying power. NYX also released two other 10-shadow palettes titled Golden Horizons and Stormy Skies. The former has a lot of golden shades, while the latter has mostly cool-toned shades. The palette was CAN $20, which is a bargain for a palette given the price of some of the other palettes out there, and I will wear all of the shades.
