Hey you! We have made it to the weekend, my friends. How was your week? If your week wasn't great, maybe you need some retail therapy to cheer you up? Before you go, check out some of my latest purchases from the drugstore over the past two months. Enjoy.
- Rimmel Cocktail Colour (Baby Bellini)--Gorgeous, shimmery purple that takes only one coat and dries quickly. Love it and wearing it in the video.
- Sally Hansen Sugar Coat (Bubble Plum)--Pretty color but don't like the texture.
- Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat (Tweedy and Fuzz-Sea)--Fun, textured polishes in several colors.
Bottom pic--I brushed on and then patted on color so you could see the difference.
Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Collection (Pink Shock)--Comes in several neon colors but they are not neon on the lips. Sheer to visible pigmentation depending on your lip color. Once the brightness fades away, you're left with a pretty stain. I really liked this one.
Rimmel Show Off Lip Laquers (Nova, Galaxy, Out of This World)--A cross between a lipstick and gloss. Long wearing, lots of color options, and heavily pigmented.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in New Packaging (Kiss Me Coral, Peach Pango)--I had to Google what a "pango" is and it's a pineapple mango. And now I'm hungry, but back to the glosses. New packaging that is larger than the previous packaging. Does that mean more product? Doubtful, but the glosses are gorgeous. The peach might be too sheer for heavily pigmented lips.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch (Peach Glow)--This is luminizer is way too shimmery for me and is hard to remove. I tried it several ways but I like it better as a glow for legs in the summer. Would not repurchase.
Swatched, product rubbed in, container
Mascaras & Liner (all in black):
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Curve Alert--Similar to the original Scandal Eyes but with a curved brush. I didn't notice a difference. I like it but wouldn't repurchase.
Milani Total Lash Cover--This has a bizarre 3-zone brush with this nub on the end. I don't like this mascara. The wand is too short and the nub got me in the eye!
Milani Runway Lashes--Decent volume, wouldn't repurchase
Milani Power Lash--Huge brush and nice volume...like it a lot!
Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes--LOVE THIS MASCARA! The bottom lashes wand is great and the top lashes wand gives great defined volume. Skip waterproof.
Covergirl Ink It Liner--Twist up waterproof liner. Great for waterlines--it really lasts!
Got 2 B Smooth Operator Luster Lotion
L'Oreal Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Creme
- Ok, these aren't "new" but I wanted to see if anyone else has tried them OR if they have a better suggestion. I am still on the hunt for a replacement for my beloved, discontinued Sunsilk Straighten Up. Haven't reviewed either of these, but of course will update once I do.

Have a great weekend! Be safe, behave, and be well. Love, Elle
