NYC and Rimmel sent me some of their new releases to review and share with you! From NYC, I got their new Big, Bold eyeliner in black as well as four waterproof chubby eyeshadow sticks. From Rimmel, I got their new Lift Me Up mascara in black.
A little more info about the new Rimmel mascara:
Here’s an eye look I did using all but the blue shadow stick. I used East River Romance (the blue shadow stick) in this 4th of July look here.
I used Rockefeller Center Snowflakes (the white) under my brow and in the corners of my eyes. I used 5th Ave Gold rush (the gold) on the lid and Central Park Tulips (the purple) in the crease. I then used a stubby, stiff shadow brush to blend them. I wish these colors had a better color payoff. They look so lovely in the packaging but I just couldn’t get them to show up in an eye look.
The NYC Big, Bold eyeliner works really well. It took a little getting used to since the tip is a bit chubby, but it goes on very smoothly. I’ve used it 5 days in a row now and the application is as lovely as day one.
The Rimmel mascara is pretty fabulous – especially for a drugstore brand. It even kinda smells like cucumbers.
