So I finally sat down and did a full face. I haven’t done more than a quick face since the move. Definitely nothing photo-worthy. But I’ve got lots of goodies to try out and photograph so I sat down and whipped out all of the new items. They took over my entire desk! So I’m going to have to spread these out over the next few weeks. Hopefully I can make my way through everything by next month.

First up is Rimmel London’s new Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour shades. There are 14 shades total. Rimmel claims bold matte lips in one swipe with up to 12 hours of kiss-proof, water-proof, and touch-proof wear. Here are my thoughts!

I like the packaging. It’s a swirly, triangle, frosted, matte tube. The applicator is a bit longer and flatter than other liquid lipsticks. But it still made for an easy application. Scent wise it smells a little like vanilla, but maybe a more chemical vanilla scent. I didn’t find it to be bothersome and it does go away after application. The texture is thick and kind of moussey. I feel like because of that it does take a while to fully dry down, but it does dry down. Once fully dry they do make for a comfortable wear. I’d say it was fairly lightweight. I didn’t experience any excessive drying and for the most part it was transferproof. Of course that depends on what you eat. I’d stay away from anything greasy. But that’s with any liquid lipstick. And you’re definitely going to want to prep those lips beforehand! Because these babies do not play nice with dry or chapped lips. Some liquid lipsticks are forgiving, but these definitely aren’t. I can’t say much about the 12 hour claim, but the shades I tried did last well throughout the day. Which for me is about 8 hours.

I really love the color selection. I love how they included a black, blue, and gray. However, these shades don’t really apply fully opaque. I found them to be muted and not as bold as they should have been. I think if someone opts for a beautiful bold like Shadow, they’re expecting a nice, rich, bold, gray shade. Not a watered down version of it. That being said I do still like Shadow. Obviously it’s so not my shade! But it was really fun to experiment with and it could be a nice introduction for someone wanting to try a fun, bold shade without breaking the bank.

Some of the darker shades like Midnight, Pitch Black, and Blue Iris do apply patchy. I tried my best to smooth them over, but it just wasn’t happening. Plum This Show can be worked with and is actually quite beautiful with a little extra work. I think the nudes are the real winners in this selection. With the exception of Latte To Go. This one applied very streaky and wouldn’t even out. It just made for a very bad look. My favorites are Fire Starter, Heartbeat, Pink Blink, Blush, Pink Bliss, Rose & Shine, and Be My Baby. I’m going to add Shadow to this list as well. Like I said, it’s definitely not my shade, but I’m still digging it.

Overall, I think it’s a really nice selection of shades. There’s definitely something for everyone. However, if you really have your heart set on the bolder shades, you might be disappointed. These lipsticks are Ulta.com exclusives and are $5.79 each. You can see a few shades in action below!

Are y’all ready for some Rimmel London goodness? This is actually my first time experimenting with the brand. So what did I think? Let’s see!

First up is the Kate Sculpting Palette. It comes in 3 shades. Golden Sands, Coral Glow, and Golden Bronze. Each palette contains a highlighter, contour, and blush. These little trios are convenient and super pretty! Some of the shades were a little hard while others were softer and almost creamy. However, they were all pretty easy to work with. I actually liked the Golden Bronze shade the most. I found it to be the most pigmented of the bunch. And that blush shade is gorgeous! The others required some building up to really show up in the swatches. But they do apply much nicer on the face.

The Lasting Finish By Kate Nude Collection lipsticks are gorgeous! I was so excited to try these out! The packaging is all kinds of cute. I’m really digging the peachy/pink color. The lipsticks were incredibly creamy and super easy to work with. It claims to last up to 8 hours, but I only got about half of that. However, they reapplied beautifully! I really like these lipsticks. In fact I liked them so much that I ran out to buy some of those fancy looking rose gold lipsticks which I will be reviewing soon. Ok soonish!

Last, but certainly not least is the Volume Colourist Mascara. It comes in 2 shades. Black and Extreme Black. Extreme Black is pictured above. It claims to darken bare lashes in 2 weeks. My hair is naturally dark to begin with so I don’t really notice a difference there. The wand was very easy to work with. It wasn’t bulky and the brush didn’t pick up too much product. It coated my lashes evenly without looking like a clumpy mess. I don’t feel like it did much volume-wise, but it did lengthen my lashes quite a bit. I was a little surprised that a mascara with the word volume in the name provided me with more length than volume though. I think it would be pretty amazing if it did provide at least some volume. Because it was easy to apply, was even easier to wash off, didn’t flake off throughout the day, and felt very comfortable overall. But… where’s the volume, guys?
