Review: Rimmel Nail Color

I'm usually a klutz when it comes to applying nail color (ok, so that would actually apply to more then just nail color, lol). I have shaky hands I usually wind up with product on the skin around the nail. There has to be an easier way, right?

Fortunately, there is. Several brands have now incorporated a wide flat brush for ease in application & Rimmel's Lasting Finish Pro Nail Enamel is one of them.

As you can see in the photo I got the color Steel Grey, which I love. It's a gorgeous purpley-taupe shade! Now, on to the brush. I was able to apply this w/o any mishaps &, HOLY COW, it was so easy! The brush is wide enough to cover most of the nail, which results in not having to swipe the brush on the nail as much & it being flat definitely helps in spreading the color evenly. I love this brush!

The formula glided on super smooth w/o streaking or clumping & you only need 2 coats for good coverage or 3 for full opacity. I rather like the look of 2 coats, which is how many I'm wearing in the photo. As to whether or not this will last for 10 days like the product claims, I don't know. However, if you use a good topcoat you should be able to extend the wear of your nail color. Even if this doesn't last 10 days I love it & would buy it again because of the ease of application & the smoothness of the formula.

Have you, my readers, tried this product? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments! :)

Brightened Eyes

This is the look I wore in CG Amazemint Wetslicks Review. Since youtube users papercandles & pinkfairygrl1029 liked it so much, I figured I'd reproduce it in this video.

Rimmel LashMaxxx Mascara

You've read reviews (I know I have). You've seen the TV ad. But how well does it work? I've been dying to try this mascara for a while now & I finally had the opportunity to buy it the other day & test it out for myself.

How was it? I absolutely love it! The comb wand separated & defined my lashes while adding volume. And guess what? Very little clumping. This one's definitely a keeper in my makeup bag!

What Am I Wearing?

No, not what clothing am I wearing, but what makeup am I wearing. Well, I have to say, I tried something new. What, you ask? I don't remember where I read this tip, but it's very likely that I got it from a blog post by one of my fellow BBN members. (If the one who wrote the tip is reading this, please leave a comment stating the fact. Thank You!) The tip is this: If you use mineral foundation, but you sometimes want the look & feel of a liquid foundation, mix your mineral foundation powder w/your fave moisturizer.

What a concept! I'm always wanting to wear a cream blush (I've heard cream & liquid blushes work best on dry skin, like mine), but you can't put creams on top of powders. It just doesn't work. So, needless to say, I was very excited to come across this tip! I tried it, along w/my cream blush, & loved the results! Anyhoo, below I shall give you a breakdown of the makeup I'm wearing, in order of application.
  • bareMinerals Foundation mixed w/beFine Food Skincare moisturizer, applied w/Foundation brush from billyb beauty (Thank You Billy B!)
  • Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Merlot as cheek color
  • Setting Powder
  • L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Black Liquid Eyeliner
  • Rimmel LYCRA Lash Extender Mascara in Black
And that's it, I'm very happy w/the results!
