have you every tried any of the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipsticks?? if not, you better run to your nearest drugstore now!!! coz they are amazing!!!! I love these lippies... I'm pretty sure you would fall inlove with them too...


- the colors are gorgeous
- the finish is very smooth... not too creamy, not too dry.. I'd say it's just right
- it wouldn't dry out your lips
- the price is not too bad, $5.99 each.. I got mine while CVS was having a BOGOF sale.. so really not bad!
- the packaging is very simple, none of that fancy shmancy useless stuff on it
- it has a nice sweet scent to it that I love.. it's so girly, you'll find yourself sniffin on it before or after you put it on
- it lasts a decent amount of hours... I'm just not too specific about the staying power when it comes to lip products as I really don't mind reapplying them

here are pictures of the ones that I own...

my very first one was AIRY FAIRY (see this post) & my very recent purchase are CRUSH & PINK CHAMPAGNE... I believe I got these last week...

I got the Crush because I was instantly attracted to the color when I swatched it at the store... it's a bit orange-y & coral-y at the same time which shouts 'summer time!!' so I had to grab it... I will be doing a look using this lippie soon...

& the Pink Champagne just because I've seen a few makeup gurus on youtube raving about this, so I had to get it just coz this Curious George wants to see what the hype was all about... so far, I'm lovin it!!! I used it on an EOTD on this post...

 here they are upclose...

& the swatches...

I also got a couple of packages yesterday from some eBay sellers...

I purchased a couple of false eyelash sets in two different styles.. each set has ten pairs each..

here they are upclose...
(click on the image to enlarge)

as you can see, I'm into the kind that extends outwards, at the moment.. these are the kind that gradually gets thicker & longer at the end... for me this kind makes you look more feminine while giving you a really natural looking long lases... I can't wait to use these on my looks & for going out as well...

one more thing before I end this post... last night I stumbled upon Ann's blog - The Real Deal Reviews & while I was browsing thru her page, I found out about her birthday giveaway... I don't usually follow blogs because of giveaways or what not, instead I usually base it on the content, the material of the blog... & I don't usually join giveaways unless it's really great! so what's better than having found a good blog that's having an awesome giveaway at the same time right!?!?

so go check out her blog/giveaway by clicking HERE... hurry coz her giveaway ends May 9th... Goodluck to all of us who joined... =)

til next post chicaaahhhhs!!
