Fresh Green Waters

Hello Beauty Lovers,

Quick FOTD that I did for St.Patty's...I know this posting comes to you a day late but I was crazy busy yesterday. I used a MAC Duo named Fresh Green Waters.I purchased it from MAC over a year ago. I am not sure if it is still available to buy, but honestly any two greens (one Lime and one a bit darker green with black) will makes this look come to life :)

I started by using Urban Decay's primer potion and NYX jumbo pencil in NYX to prime my lids. I applied the Lime green all over the lid and the darker green in the crease. After I used MAC fluidline in Rich Ground to line my eyes and made a slight wing. I love how this color looks with the green :) Stila Kajal eyeliner in Topaz for my waterline rather then using a black. This will make my eyes look bigger. I primed my eyelashes with Urban Decay's eyelash primer and then gave my lashes two coats of CoverGirl Volume Exact mascara. This look is nothing to dramatic... it is actually very wearable and that is why I wore for this occasion because St. Patty's was on a Saturday and I was at the County Fair :) (YES IS WORE THIS LOOK TO THE COUNTY FAIR.....LOL).

Check out my youtube channel to see a tutorial on this look....

Thank you watching everyone :)

50% off Rimmel HAUL at Walgreens

Hello Beauty Lovers,

So as many of you make-up lovers probably know, Walgreens had 50% off all Rimmel products last week. I quickly headed out to my local Walgreens and snatched up a couple things before I went on my 6 month no buy that started March 1 :)

To be honest, I specifically went for the Rimmel Scandel Eyes Mascara which was just recently released. I scored it for $3.49 :) I wanted it for volume and was curious to see how the huge brush works. I havent used this mascara yet because I only keep one mascara open at a time and I am trying to finish up my Maybelline mascara. Stay tuned for a review on this mascara coming up really soon.

While I was snooping around the Rimmel section I saw the last two shades they had left of the Kate Moss lipsticks that are pretty new to the brand as well.

The lipstick on the left is number 14 and the one on the right is 04
For some odd reason the Kate Moss lipsticks do not have a name, they are identified by color only.

I would have to say that lipstick 14 (picture and swatch above) is my favorite of the two. It is a nude pink color. It does have a slight sheen to it but for the most part it is matte. Compared to other Rimmel lipsticks I feel that this one is a bit drying, so make sure you moisturize your lips before you apply it. Lasting power is good, it lasted about 5-6 hours for me.

Lipstick 04 (picture and swatch above) is different and that is why i picked it up. This is my first purple plum color lipstick. I havent worn this shade yet do to it's pigmentation. This lipstick comes off VERY dark and I am not sure just yet how I will wear it. I am not returning it because I want to use it in the near future. My swatch is very light but on the lips it comes off dark with a light sheen. I might have to put this on with a light hand..LOL

I paid $2.64 for each lipstick
My grand total for the mascara and two lipsticks was... $6.56
I was happy about that!!!!

Do any of you ladies have this mascara or these lipsticks? What are your thoughts on them? Did any of you get your hands on the 50% off Rimmel products? If yes, what did you get?
