{Press Sample}{Affiliate Links}

I received some press samples from NYC and Rimmel London to show you. These items are from some new-ish collections available for a super reasonable price in drugstores nationwide.

These two lipsticks are from the NYC Get it All collection. On the left is MochAmazing and the right is TerrifiCoral. nyc-get-it-all-lip-color

Both lipsticks are creamy, moisturizing, and have a great color payout. nyc-get-it-all-lip-color-swatch

These dual-ended sticks are from the Rimmel MagnifEyes collection. The one on top is Dark Side of the Blue which has a dark shimmery gray smudgy shadow on one end and a blue kohl liner on the other. On the bottom is Back to Blacks which is a black smudgy shadow with a black kohl liner.nyc-magnifeyes rimmel-london-magnifeyes

These are the NYC SHowtime Kohl eyeliners. One is True Black and the other is Purple Glam. I’m going to let you guess which is which. ;)nyc-showtime-kohl-liner nyc-showtime-eyeliner

Here I am sporting Dark Side of the Blue. I did use the black smudgy shadow, but I also put some powder shadow on top from the Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette. I am wearing the NYC lipcolor in MochAmazing.

Next, I wore the Back to Blacks dual-ended stick with a little Tartette palette powder on top. I used the NYC Purple Glam Kohl on my bottom lash line. I am wearing NYC TerrifiCoral on my lips.

The kohl eyeliners are super smooth. They did not drag on my lids at all, which is really what you want. The lipsticks also applied smoothly with a great color payout. The more I try from NYC and Rimmel, the more I like the brands. They are reliable and rarely have any major “misses” in their offerings.
