Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara Review and how to

If you haven't heard already Rimmel London has released a new mascara this month called Scandaleyes Retro Glam.
I received my mascara complimentary from Influenster in my Rose VoxBox it retails for 5.99. What a great price right!!

Okay so Ive been using this mascara for almost a month now and I'm really loving it. Most drug store mascaras have heavy,flaky,clumpy formulas I cannot tell you how many bottles of mascara I have thrown away not to mention I paid well about 5.99 for them also.

Rimmel Londons Scandaleyes Retro Glam doesn't weight my lashes down and it has a BIG wand which I love! The bigger the mascara bottle and wand the better for me! I always find that a big wand really lifts my lashes up high and Rimmel Londons hour glass shaped wand is perfect! It reaches the middle of my lashes perfectly which is a trouble spot for my lashes and it doesn't clump which is a big thing that i look for in my mascaras.

okay so i am going to tell you how i achieved my 
own eye-conic 60s look inspired by Georgia May Jagger.
First i primed my eyes and put a little on my eyebrows then placed tape on the sides of both of my eyes.

I started off with a black matte eyeshadow in the middle and cut my crease first then i added a grayish sort of shimmery shadow to my lid  and high lighted my brow bone.For the bottom of my eyes i used a flat brush and swiped that black matte shadow and smudged it.  For the lashes (my favorite!) i curled my lashes and applied Rimmel Londons Scanadaleyes Mascara. I used the middle to lengthen the middle of my lashes which are my trouble spot. I kind of wiggle the wand at the base of my lashes then comb them with the mascara wand until they reach the desired length. I was so excited because i didn't have to curl my lashes again after applying my mascara.
I finished off with a soft pink blush and a nude lip
Of course my look doesn't compare to Georgia May Jaggers but it was fun trying to recreate it.

I hope you enjoyed this blog because i have had so much fun testing this mascara  and don't forget to check it out for yourself it hit shelves this November! Make sure you have long sultry lashes for the holidays or give them as stocking stuffers.

Happy Holidays! 

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

Hi lovelies! So I'm suuuuper excited to tell you about a product i received complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

It is the StayMatte Liquid Mousse foundation.
So, I have tried so many foundations over the years the number 1 problem i always have is the color. I am so light with pink cheeks that even the lightest color is either too light or the second one up is like grey-ish looking. No one wants to look dirty when wearing makeup right?

I was so happy and surprised how well that this foundation matched my skin. I chose the 100 Ivory. It comes out thick but super fluffy and airy, if that makes sense.. you would have to try it to know what I'm talking about. It was really easy to blend, felt really light almost like it wasn't there to be honest. It dries to a smooth matte finish and the best part it isn't greasy or sticky after you apply it. To further test it i did not set it with any powder and...... it lasted all day and my face wasn't greasy at all!

Now another problem i have as stated above is the stickiness when it dries. I absolutely hate that! it ruins my powder, my face looks and feels nasty and i feel like my skin cant breathe. I was really impressed with how light this was compared to my 10 bottles of foundation i have in my makeup box, seriously.

I vined my StayMatte foundation routine i will insert it for you to see. See my StayMatte Vine Here
Sorry but it wouldn't let me insert it for some reason.

This was my box . Also i really loved the packaging the tube also has a matte finish and i really liked the purple cap super cute.
This foundation can be found at your local drug stores or Target , Walmart etc.I suggest you go out and try it, its honestly a really great product and at a great price.
One more thing that i almost forgot. When i was researching on what shade i should get i read reviews saying that this foundation dries orange or something. I had NO problem with this and I've been wearing it pretty much everyday. I'm thinking maybe they were not getting their colors right maybe?
If you have any questions comment below, I always respond and id love to hear what you think.
