Rimmel English Rose eyeshadow+lipstick review <3

Hi all lovelies 🙂 First of all, I want to give a bigggg HUG and THANK YOU to all of you who come to my blog and support me warmly. It means a lot to me. Love you ladies! 🙂

I really like to paired items up to create a nice theme, and today I come up a pink rose theme. Rose is definitely my favorite flower and scent, its just so elegant  and soft. 

So on to the topic, I wanna give a review on Rimmel London’s Glam’s Eyes HD Quad eyeshadow in 005 English Rose. And I paired it up with a Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick  in 002 Candy. 

So here is a photo of them together, I think they’re soooo pretty ❤ ImageImage

The eyeshadow quad has a soft pink with tiny gold shimmer, a medium brown taupe, a medium brown with pink undertone, and a deep brown with purple undertone shadow( but the pueple doesn’t show up once swatch).

The swatches in natural lighting (left-right: pink,taupe,pinkish brown, deep purple brown)Image

Swatches in darker lightingImage

Colors: 10/10 very pretty warm colors, not super shimmering so good for everyday look

Pigmentation: 10/10 good pigmentation, the color shows up on the skin is almost the same in the pan

Texture: 10/10 smooth and buttery, blends well

Lasting power: 8/10 good for 5-6 hours without a primer

Packaging: 4/10 good looking, but not so efficient for using. The browns are hard to dip in with a brush

Price: 10/10 Really cheap in drugstores, and often have promotions and discounts

Overall: 8/10 a very nice quad to have, packaging needs to be improved though 🙂

 

Next, let get on to the lipstick:)

Swatches with 2 times (top) and with 6 times (bottom):

ImageColor: 4/10 the soft blue tone pink is gorgeous, however the silver shimmer makes it look frosty.

Pigmentation: 4/10 as you can see from the swatches, its a very sheer pigmentation that looks almost like a tinted lip balm. However, you can build up the color to achieve a nice pinky lip (at least 6 times application though!!)

Texture: 5/10 you can feel the shimmer particles, not very smooth, a little dying 

Lasting Power: 8/10 stays on me for 3-4 hours with little drinking 

Packaging: 7/10 standard lipstick tube 

Price: 10/10 very affordable and often has discounts

Overall: 4/10 Not a big fan of this color, but might be good in other color 🙂

My Everyday Makeup Products <3

Hey everyone! I’m thinking of posting a “products use in my everyday makeup” to start off as a little intro to my new blog. I will show you my everyday makeup products, and do mini reviews on them below the photos. If you are interested in any of the products and want a full review of it, please leave a note in the comment area, and I will do a full review of the product as soon as possible. As a new blogger, I definitely need more to learn. So please feel free to give any advise and suggestion for me in the comment area:)

Before we go on, I just want to make some disclamations:

  1. I purchase all (by all I mean every single beauty product in my whole collection, not just the ones that I am showing in this post) my beauty products by myself at the products’ brands’ official counters, so there are no intentions of advertising certain brands.
  2. I am not trying to show off of what I use, so please don’t hate:)

So now on to the topic, I don’t use very special colors and keep it fairly basic on a daily routine. Here are the products:

ImageImage

-La Prairie Anti Aging Foundation a cellular emulsion SPF15 (shade 100): Has skincare benefits, good coverage, not worth the price. I also double up as a concealer.

-Chanel Poudre Universelle Compact natural finish pressed powder (shade 20 Clair): I use this to set my foundation, this is my second one, very natural, not matte, not cakey, love itJ

-Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush (shade 72-rose initial): this is the bake formula, lovely warm pink shade with subtle shimmer, goes well with every look.

-Revlon customEyes (shade natural glamorous): Nice warm browns with subtle shimmer, good pigmentation, smooth texture.

-Dior 5-color eyeshadow quint (shade 609-Earth Reflection): beautiful buttery texture, long lasting, A LOT of shimmer in the 3 lighter colors, so I don’t really use it as eyeshadow for everyday. I use the brown shade on the top right corner to fill in my brows, the bottom right cream shade to highlight my brow bones, and the top left corner gold shade to highlight my eyes’ inner corners.

-KATE eyeliner pencil (shade black): KATE is a Japanese cosmetic brand incase if you don’t knowJ I bought mine at KATE’s official counter in Asia, I think its not available in north America (correct me if I’m wrong). Good eyeliner with affordable price!

-Lancôme Cils Booster XL : condition the lashes, adds length but not so much volume.

-The Body Shop Super Volume Mascara (shade black): natural looking, not too much volume, has a strong flora scent.

-Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick (shade 35-Chinzt): lovely peachy pink, my lips but better color, satin finish, creamy texture, hydrating, well pigmented.

So these are all the products that I am using everyday. Any question or suggestion on a topic or wanting a review of a certain product, just post in the comment area, and I’ll reach you ASAP!

Cheers <3<3<3
