Eyes, Lips, Face

Just thought I’d do a post on a few of my favourite items at the min!

Firstly I have to mention Cool Touch Shadows by Rimmel. A recent discovery and I have fallen in love with them! At first I expected these to be like the No7 Stay Perfect Eye Mousse (which I also love) but they really couldn’t be more different
Icy, Champagne Frost, Cool Down
The texture is extremely watery so they have to be applied with a very light hand and they dry super fast so you have to work quickly! I’ve found that these make the most perfect simple, shimmery, non-creasing base for any makeup look. Or they can be used for a nice subtle day time look because they have a little shimmer but aren’t too OTT

I’m a bit of a lip gloss addict and every time I come across a gorgeous pink shade I just have to have it! Which actually kinda sucks cos it means I have far too many favourites and I have some serious trouble choosing which to wear! Anyone else have a favourite lip gloss that you just couldn’t live without?

Oh and I wanted to mention my Too Faced Ooh La Rough blush in Pink Provocateur! I love the Too Faced eye shadows, lip glosses and of course Shadow Insurance so had pretty high hopes for this blush and wasn’t disappointed!
It’s the perfect pink shade and I only have one teensy little complaint; totally don’t get why they have included a pale highlight colour... surely if you wanted a highlighter you could buy it separately instead of being stuck with something you wont even use? I’d have preferred a container full of the gorgeous dark pink :)
Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

These are all gorgeous picks - I will have to check out the rimmel. I am the same way with eyeshadows, I have such trouble picking what I want! I always seem to be attracted to dark purples... regardless, thanks so much for stopping by and commenting on my blog, come back any time :) Yours is lovely!

I like the look of those Rimmel cool touch shadows! I weill have to have a look at them next time I pop into Superdrug!

I love lipgloss! I always forget to put it on during the day but I have a ridiculous amount and most of them are nude/baby pink colours :)

That blusher looks so pretty aswell :)

Wow, thanks for posting about the first product! I tried something that seems similar by Chanel, but that's not exactly in my price range at the moment. I love the colors of these.

I'm never big with make up and I'm such a silly make up dummy. But those colors are so gorgeous, and I totally admire your collection of lipgloss!

Have a wonderful weekend! (:

All Made Up said...

Thank you for all your lovely comments and recommendations!

As for the Rimmel cool touch shadows I think they're actually from an old line but I only came across them recently! I guess some things just pass me by if they arent constantly advertised on TV n such :)

Emily♥ 에밀리 ♥エミリー said...

I love makeup pictures, thanks for sharing! :) Is that first Rimmel shadow a greenish shade?

All Made Up said...

Yep Emily, it's like a really light mint-ish green shade and kinda changes depending on the light - far more shiny and glitterly in sunlight and a bit darker when its dull (or I'm indoors)

Thanks for commenting - seeing new comments or followers really makes my day. sad but true! :)
