Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liners Review and Swatches. Rave

Rimmel  Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liners are a cult product among the beauty lovers, especially the East End Snob shade.

Let’s find out why…

First of all, the design is amazing, these pencils look way more expensive than they actually are, and it is great that each shade has a matching packaging. Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liners don’t need sharpening, and help with a precise application,  as they are not too thin but not too thick either.

As for the formula – it is all you need in a

L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower Review and Lip Swatches

I have a slight obsession with cool-toned shimmering lip glosses, the sadly discontinued Guerlain’s KissKiss Gloss in 800 Crystal Pearl has to be my favourite gloss in the World.  I am actually always on a hunt for a good dupe. Plus, despite having tonnes of lip products, this is the kind of lip glosses that I manage to use up.

This is why I had to pick up new L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower. By the way, there are tonnes of gorgeous shades and several finishes in the line, so they are definitely worth checking out.

And this gloss is really nice, it feels great on the lips, moisturizing, non-sticky or gloopy at all. I also like the applicator (similar to YSL) which “hugs” the lips and helps with the application. While this shade is quite forgiving that may be something useful with darker and brighter colours.

I am sure that it’s not a surprise that I’ve included this  lip product, it is now my handbag staple, gorgeous baby pink everyday colour, beautiful moisturizing and long-lasting formula. Nice applicator and delicious scent. I highly recommend.

ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof (Red 08 and Pink 80) £8.40 from Beauty Bay.

Ok, I know this is cheating because I have two shades but I love them both equally. Dark red 08 and dusky rose 80, they glide-on like a dream, despite the matte long -lasting formula. Can be used on their own all over the lips, or to cheat a fuller lip, with  lipstick or gloss on top.

Wet n Wild Eye Shadows in Don’t Steal My Thunder Review and Swatches

Finally I have tried the cult eye shadows  from Wet n Wild!  There is so much hype around these, that I just had to see what is it all about.

My friend picked up a classic “smoky eye” palette in Don’t Steal My Thunder for me and here is how it looks like.

 And… these [eye shadows] are truly amazing! Very pigmented, smooth and silky.  They apply and blend out evenly and stay on for hours without creasing. I had high expectations, since so many people seem to love the brand’s eye shadows, and they
