Beauty Product Review: Rimmel London Eye Liner

Black eyeliner hates me.  I'm sure of this.  There must be something wrong with me.  I can't draw that famous cat-eye look.  It's impossible.  I've tried.  I've practiced.  I've given up.

At least that was the thought I had before trying Rimmel London's Waterproof black kohl eyeliner.  It goes on so smooth.  I actually prefer this over liquid liners because liquid liners are so hard to control.  With this kohl eyeliner, I feel like I have more control over the tip and I can draw a straighter line.  I know I haven't perfected the whole "wing" part yet.  But I'm getting there.

The color is seriously black and I love it.  It's not one of those dark grey or sheer black colors.  It's true black and amazing.  This thing is waterproof and won't come off without a eye makeup remover.  And the Rimmel Eye makeup remover only takes two swipes to wipe this stuff clean off my face.  More on that later.

I have oily lids so I did see some smudging after three hours of wear.  But when I actually took the time to prime my eyes with Urban Decay's eyeshadow primer in greed.  This liner stayed where it was supposed to.

So, thank you Influenster and Rimmel London for renewing my faith in eyeliner.

January 2015 Blog Feature

The rush of people running from store to store and the frantic hysteria of finding the perfect present is over.  We can pull the coffee table towards the sofa, prop our feet up, and take a deep breath.  While we sit and relax, we pull out our cell phones, tablets, and laptops and catch up on the latest news.  We scroll through page after page of pictures, pins, tweets, and posts.

This month I have loved seeing new Crash Beauty posts in my blogger feed.  Chrissy grades every product she reviews and gives all the juicy details: the good, the bad and the ugly.  And I just wish I saw her Holiday gift guide during the holidays!  I was searching high and low, looking through every shelf, section, and stack, (literally, at every Target and bookstore in my area) for a journal.  I thought there must be one that I like somewhere.  I'm not that hard to please right?

Anyway, Crash Beauty's review of Kat Von D's studded lipsticks makes me want to get in to my car and drive straight to Sephora.  These lipsticks sound amazing!  And if she gives them an "A" that means I need them.

Plus, Chrissy always takes amazing photos, so you always know what all the products look like before you get them.  Speaking of which, I have a trip to Sephora to make.

Easy DIY Green Latte

Nothing beats sipping a hot green tea latte while reading an amazing book under a soft fuzzy blanket.  And you will never want to get up because once you do, the cold air will just attack you.  Seriously.  But, we can't spend all day in bed or the sofa.  (No matter how much we want to)  So, when we have to leave the house, we have to put on decent clothes and makeup.  (Because we can't walk out like a homeless zombie)
At home, I like to wear comfy clothes and that consists of yoga pant shorts and ripped up tees.  But that is not a good idea when its 11 degrees Fahrenheit outside.  Hot tea is perfect for cold winter days.

Lately, I have been craving a green tea latte.  Matcha Green Tea powder has so many antioxidants and benefits.  It can give you more energy and help you get clearer skin!

If that doesn't make you crave a green tea latte, then I don't know what will.

To make a latte, I mix a teaspoon of Green Tea powder with a tablespoon of hot water.   I mix it until it creates a green paste.  I add warm milk to the paste and stir till everything is incorporated together.  I also add a few small spoons of sugar to this latte and it tastes like HEAVEN!

And seriously, a teaspoon creates a pretty strong latte.  Don't let the small size of this bag fool you!  You will be using it for months!  You can use this green tea powder for baking and even smoothies.  I'm probably going to try and make Green Tea macaroons.   I'm so excited!
