Today I did a bit of shopping and picked up some China Glaze polishes, lip products from Rimmel and Maybelline shadows! So let's take a look!
'For Audrey' Nail Lacquer, Matte Magic Top Coat & 'IV' Nail Lacquer by China Glaze
I picked up two polishes and a top coat by China Glaze first. I went in originally only planning to buy For Audrey. I've seen it on a lot of beauty blogs and I've fallen in love with the color! I really wanted to try it for myself. And all the China Glaze polishes were on for $3.99! I found it and then just looked at some of the other polishes for fun.. but when I saw IV I really wanted to get it! I thought it was just a really pretty pink.. and you can never have enough pink polishes, right..? Right.. And I also thought it would look cute with For Audrey if you did cotton candy inspired nails! I haven't painted my nails like that for like four years!
I also came across the mini bottle of the Matte Magic top coat which was on for $2.81! I love matte nails (I love matte everything, really..) so I decided to give it a shot! I had another matte top coat by CND but I didn't like it.. It was a white opaque.. And a tiny bit thick or something.. It didn't go on clear and when it dried it would change the color of your polish. And it didn't even give that much of a matte finish. And if you didn't apply it evenly you would get streaks and your nails would be different colors..!
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in '08' & '07'
I had seen these on a few other beauty blogs and really wanted to try some for myself! Unfortunately they didn't have them here in Canada yet at that time.. They're here now though so I picked up two of them today! They were $4.98 each. I really love the packaging.. I just really like sleek packaging. Especially black. And I love the red signature.
I haven't tried these out yet but if I like them I might pick up one of the red shades! One thing about these though is that they smell really good! While I was swatching I smelt something really nice and then realized that it was the lipstick! I'm really unsure of how to describe the scent.. I can't quite put my finger on it. I love it, though!
Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in 'Eastend Snob'
I also picked up a lipliner from Rimmel. This was $5.98. I had been thinking about whether to get this or not.. But I've been in need of a lipliner lately so I finally got it. I love the color and the name! It's just a nude, pink that you could wear with almost any lip color..
Here are some swatches of Eastend Snob, 08 and 07. It's so hard for me to get good swatch pictures! It's hard for me to capture the color correctly.. I usually adjust the color later a bit to try to make it a better match. Hopefully my swatches will improve! For now though, from left to right we have Eastend Snob lipliner, 08 by Kate Moss and 07 by Kate Moss.
Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in 'Tough as Taupe', 'Too Cool', and 'Bad to the Bronze'
And last we have the Color Tattoo shadows by Maybelline! These were a pain in the butt to get! Wherever I went they were either out of the shades I wanted or the only ones left had been opened and tampered with. I first saw the display for these before all of the hype about these started.. Tough as Taupe immediately caught my eye. I thought I might give it a try.. But decided not to because I really didn't need more makeup.. A while later I started hearing about all the hype surrounding these. I told myself I'd have to try them out this time and get Tough as Taupe. All the store were out of it! Some time passed and then I went shopping out of my province last week and came across them again! They had a tester for Bad to the Bronze and I decided to give it a swatch.. I loved it! I couldn't stop telling Megan to "look at how pretty this is!". They had Tough as Taupe there as well! I thought I could just get them back at home though, especially since I had spent a lot already that day. So then a few days later I decided to finally go pick them up.. And all the stores were out of both shades! So frustrating. So today I finally found them and picked them up! They were $9.99 each. I also decided to try out Too Cool as I thought it would make a nice base! I'm happy to finally have these and I can't wait to try them out!
Swatches from left to right of Tough as Taupe, Too Cool and Bad to the Bronze. I really like these already just from swatching!
Once I get to try everything out I will do my best to get up some reviews!
