Illusion Eyes and Rimmel Lasting Colour Rush Lip Balm Review

rimmel lips illusion eyes

As I was on my way to the supermarket I accidentally (ahem) stopped by at super drugs, which is where I purchased this Rimmel Lasting Rush Colour Lip Balm, and these Glam Republic Illusion Eyes. I hadn’t seen a stick on eyeliner before, but the ones I chose had sparkly black glitter, so I couldn’t resist having ago. They are all reduced at the moment to about £1, so I thought even if they are rubbish it’s not such a loss.

They are very simple to use, measure it to the length of your eye and trim it down carefully if it’s to long, peel the plastic backing off to reveal the sticky side, it also comes with some glue for extra adhesion, then place along the top of the lashes. And Ta Daaa….

These are so much easier to apply than false eyelashes, but I didn’t think the glue they provided was up to much, so I used my duo eyelash glue instead, this seamed to work quite well. I think for a first attempt I put them on pretty well although next time I think I would place them a little higher on the otter edge and use eyelash glue along the hole of the eyeliner not just the corners. I then decided to go for a cycle…. don’t know if that was such a good idea, it was pretty hot out. The left eyeliner decided to peal itself off in the inner corner, which is when it poked the skin of my eyelid, it was very scratchy and as I hadn’t brought any glue with me, on my leisurely jaunt, I pulled them both off. I think if they aren’t glued down properly my fear is that because they are pieces of some kind of plastic that they might get a bit stabby on the eye area. I think this is why they got reduced.

I will have another go with the smaller size left in the pack and see how I get on but I don’t think i would re-purchase, not unless they made them softer. It’s a shame because I really liked the over all affect, especially the glitter, I couldn’t really notice they were on after a while, but I don’t want to end up with a blood shot eye. For a pound you could give it ago but other wise I think this is just a miss.

Lip Pencil

I bought this Rimmel Lasting Rush Colour Lip Balm at the same time and I love it, I have been wearing it everyday, I like that it is slightly opaque like a lipgloss, but with better staying power. It looks like a jumbo sized crayon, it is a creamy texture and finish; it lasted a lot longer than I thought it would. I’m always looking for natural day time colours and this one really suits my skin tone and my natural lip. I bought the colour “I Want Candy” it’s a soft rosy colour. This was a good buy for sure,and it was £5.99 well worth it.

O.P.I Koala Beary

16 AUG 13 063 copy

I stopped buying  O.P.I, as it’s expensive and I always thought it took that little bit longer to dry  meaning inevitably I would smudge !! Argggg I hate smudging all my efforts. I just want to have pretty nails!!

However I have been lured back in by O.P.I  in the past year, I had forgotten how thick (in a good way) the varnishes are. One coat is practically enough. The quality is wonderful, and coupled with my seche vite top coat I don’t have to worry about drying time.

This vibrant summer berry colour is gorgeous.  In this photo I only used one coat of base and one of Koala Beary.

I also did a post about this varnish coupled with the Mariah Carey limited edition “Pure” which has white gold and silver leaf in it. check out the look here

O.P.I Brazil Review and Look

opi brazil collection

We all know it’s coming, the World Cup 2014!!! yeah…….. I’m not gonna lie, football isn’t really my thing, but I do get involved in the world cup fever. Even if you aren’t into football, what a great excuse to base a nail varnish collection on Brazil, one of the most colourful diverse countries in the world. So cheers to the world cup for bringing me Brazil O.P.I.

There are two Brazil Mini collections out, this one and the “sands”. I chose this one as I love all the colours. I find it quite hard to find greens and blue nail polishes that compliment my skin tone, I am quite yellow, and certain colours toned green/blues make me look like I’ve got jaundice (not to flattering). But this deep warm green AmazON…AmazOFF is really flattering against my skin tone. I decided to couple this Green up with the bright orange by the name of Where Did Suzi’s Man-go.

Love this!!

I also created another nail look with the remaining two polishes. The first is my fave’ Next Stop …The Bikini Zone it’s a shimmery ,purpley,silvery, sparkly wondrous polish, I think it looks like a little galaxy in a bottle. Combining this with Kiss Me I’m Brazilian (don’t mind if I do) this colour is smoking hot, a bright burst of fresh Pink; and these two side by side I think look rather exciting. The quality and consistency of all these O.P.I’s are as ever really smooth with a strong application of the colour.
