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?

  1. I purchased the Kate Moss lipstick in 04 (that super dark plummy color), and I, too, found that it was super dark at first. What I have been doing is putting on a decent first coat (obviously not too heavy but like a regular lipstick) and try not to get scared by it..LOL. Then I blot it with my fingers to soften the color. Then it really is beautiful. I just discovered you by the way. Thanks for posting this info.
