New Rimmel and NYC Eye Products!

*Products Sent to Me for Review

Hey guys!

While I have a nail on my left hand that is healing and regrowing from a month or two ago when I sliced the top of the base with scissors, I have another different review for you guys!

I have two new products from the minds over at Sally Hansen and Coty, Inc. These come from two different brands in their company, Rimmel and NYC: New York Color.

Recently they came out with some new products for your eyes and I was asked if I would like to test them out and review them. I am new to doing eye product reviews, but I was game!

They sent me a mascara and four eyeshadow sticks. Since my eyeshadow skills are only good enough for me to see and I suck at taking eye pics, I swatched on my arm.

First up, I will show you guys the mascara that they sent me. I was sent Rimmel London's Wonderlash Lift Me Up Mascara.

This mascara has a huge wand and brush, which I love. It has two curves to get all of your lashes. I tried it on one eye only so you guys could see a before and after. It lengthened my lashes, but I didn't think it did anything super extraordinary. I like it as a mascara in general though, very nice, but not anything too special.

 (Left eye is shown with no mascara, and right eye shows with.)

Next I have up the NYC CityProof 24hr Waterproof Eyeshadow, which I have four different colors to show you guys.

The first two colors I have up are Madison Square Park and Empire State Building.

Madison Square Park is a bright emerald green that has shimmer and is almost minty. 

Empire State Building is a slate grey shimmer that can look almost blue in the light. 

Next up, these two are Brooklyn Mocha and Murray Hill Champagne.

Brooklyn Mocha is a light golden brown shimmer that is almost rosey. It shows up better in the group swatch shot. 

Murray Hill Champagne is a super light gold with shimmer.

I felt that all four of the eyeshadow sticks didn't have super high pigment until you really went over it at least four times, but I still find the colors pretty and great to layer on other colors.

Rimmel London's Wonderlash Lift Me Up Mascara retails for $8.99 and the NYC CityProof 24hr Waterproof Eyeshadow sticks retail for $2.99 each. I haven't spotted the mascara in stores yet, but the eyeshadow sticks are in stores now. Check your local CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, and other stores for these products.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now! I'll talk to you all later, bye!

Rimmel London: Salon Pro: Kate Moss Shades

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today to show you a couple of shades that I picked up last month from Longs Drugs

These two are from Rimmel's newest nail polish line, Salon Pro. The two shades in particular that I have to show you guys are from Kate Moss' collection in this line and with this brand.

These two shades are more darker than I usually go for, but I thought they were super unique and so pretty!

The first one that I have up to show you is called Punk Rock. This is a purple toned gray creme. I did two coats by itself. Application was great. I love the name of this, it is a very unique color that to me embodies punk rock. (Scissor injury on my middle finger, hence the line)

The second one that I have up to show you is called Saturn. This is a nice bronzy-gold metallic polish. I did two coats by itself. I love this color. While there are many golds out there and many browns, this one is great because it combines the two colors into one lovely metallic. Application is great.

I love these polishes. They are so pretty. They go on so well. As for the wear, it didn't last long but like I've said before, polish never lasts long on my nails so don't really trust me on that. You can pick these guys up at Longs Drugs or wherever they sell Rimmel products, but these are not in all displays. Longs had them for the regular price of $2.99 each, probably cheaper where you live since everything here is at a markup.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you all later, bye!

Sally Hanson Complete Salon Manicure: Bridal Collection 2015

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today to show you some lovely polishes that I picked up from Sally Hansen.

My work, Ross, occasionally gets in some mainstream brand polishes. This time, they got in a couple Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure ones. One day I picked up one, and the next day I picked up another.

I looked the colors up that I picked up and noticed that they are both from their bridal collection from this past spring, which is exciting to know I got polish from such a recent collection. I only found two out of the four or five in the entire collection.

The first one that I have up to show you is called Perfect Pair. This is a baby pink filled with micro golden shimmer. I did three coats by itself. Application was great.

The second one I picked up is called Bridal Bling. This is a metallic silver polish filled with micro holo-gold glitter. I did three coats by itself. Application was great.

While baby pinks and silvers are a dime a dozen and nothing to write home about, what makes these polishes unique is the micro shimmer and glitter hidden inside of the polish.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you all later, bye!
