Rimmell London Kate Sculpting Palette (contour, ladies)!

kate contour

The invention of contour has reallllllyy enriched our lives.  Don’t cha think? Admit it!  Whether it’s because you silently giggle at the girl that looks like Halloween or you admire the woman who has a flawless, perfect glow, and you wonder how you can achieve the look…

While I’m still a rookie in the contour game, as I don’t truly feel like I need it or that it’s necessary, I like to dabble in it some.  Rimmell London’s Kate Moss Collection has pretty much been FIRE to me (see my previous post regarding her nude lipstick collection) and she did not disappoint with this sculpting palette–so pretty!

 

I received both 001 Golden Sands  and 003 Golden Bronze complimentary in exchange for my honest review.

Obviously, Golden Sands would not work for darker skin tones such as mine unless you love clowns.  However, the color combination is great and I think it could work well for someone of fair to medium complexion.  My photo doesn’t do it justice really!  It is really not that chalky in person, it just doesn’t work well with my chocolate!

Now, Golden Bronze I was impressed with.  I had a difficult time getting it to show up in a picture, and had to put it on my arm like 3 times!  That’s a win in my book, because your contour game shouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb.  When I’ve used this for contouring, the colors provided just enough shimmer!  The sculpter could be a little darker in my opinion, but I was still pleased in my overall look when using this product.

Another plus is the price point (runs about $6-$7) and the availability!  It’s sold at many of our favorite retailers such as Target, Walmart and more!

3 Amigos For Us Short-Lashed Girls

WILL WE BE FASHIONABLE?  So I’ve touched on this before, but I feel as though my lashes suck.  Some of you beauties I’m sure are blessed with lashes for days.  (I hate you, that is all).  And while mine are fairly thick, they are so short!  It also seems like such a waste to me that men/boys have such gorgeous lashes.  My husband and son have lashes for DAYSSSSSS and so did my father.  But here I sit, short and curly.  **stomps feet.**

I am the biggest fan of false lashes.  Not the huge, fat, thick, weird-looking tarantula ones, but the others.  For me, I can’t truly get the length I desire from Mascara.  Since I wear glasses, I feel like falsies make my eyes pop more.  I do wear mascara when I’m too lazy to do my lashes or short on time.

Now, my favorite mascara to date is TARTE MASCARA BLOG LINK.  It really makes my lashes long and thick and so very pretty!  But uhhh…it’s 21 bucks.

I would much rather spend my dough on some fun lipstick or eyeshadow.  So I’ve used these drug-store lovelies with some really good results:

Our first broken heart-shaped brush creates a fringe of big, curvy, rockin’ lashes. This cleverly-shaped applicator twists and curves to hug the lash line; the thin tip grabs hard-to-reach inner lashes, while the amplified base pulses lashes with incredible volume and curve. Lashes are plumped and lifted in one clean stroke. No clumps!

I’ve personally had the best result from Scandal Eyes!  It gives good length and thickens them without too much clumping.

I’m curious, what do you girls use for mascara?  And are any of you false-eyelash lovers?  I want to do a review on false lashes, and would love to hear recommendations!
