Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish in Blue My Mind.....

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Hey Everyone!!

This week manicure is Rimmel London 60 Second Nail Polish in Blue My Mind. Even though it's 
fast drying formula, I like it. With a good stroke, it's almost a one coat polish.

RK by Kiss Matte Lip Lacquer Swatches & Review......

Hey Everyone!!

Matte lip lacquers are the current big trend in makeup these days along with contouring kits. It's like every company is making them and charging arm and leg ( up to $25) for one matte lip gloss. Ya'll know I'm not down with that unless it's a shade or formula I must, MUST have. I was happy to find out and find that BSS ( beauty supply store) brand RK by Kiss did their own matte lip lacquer for only $3.99( the price at my local BSS). I grabbed up four shades:

Swatches left to right: Wonderland, Rosy, Ruby and Queen.

I have mixed feelings about them.....

#1 I don't like the lip lacquers that dry down matte. They are very uncomfortable on me. These don't dry down to a matte, so that didn't bother me.

#2 However, RK by Kiss Matte Lip Lacquers are a sliding mess. They slip and slide all of over your mouth. They have a mousse-y wet texture that you can't put on multiple layers. One light layer of color is almost enough.

#3 They are not that matte, more like satin. They are very pigmented though.

I doubt I'm pick up anymore shades. I watched Youtuber PlatinumD do a swatch video on these and none of the other colors are worth the run for.

Kiss New York Lip Glace Swatches & Review.....

Hey Everyone!

I've been hitting the jackpot when it comes to finding BSS and drugstore Spring releases. I ran up on these new lip glosses at the local beauty supply store by Kiss New York called Lip Glace. They were $2.99 and since I'm not a big gloss girl anymore, I picked up only three shades....for now. :)

 Left to right: Natural, Lavender, and Deep Purple
Swatches left to right: Natural, Lavender, and Deep Purple

These glosses have the same texture as Maybelline Color Elixir glosses. Not sticky with great pigmentation and about $3 cheaper. If you love natural glossy lips, Natural is a perfect shade for brown girls. Deep Purple is like a glossy MAC Heroine purple shade. Lavender is not that wearable unless you want to ombre or fade out a dark purple lip. I plan on picking up a couple more shades!
