Rimmel London Glam'Eyes Professional Liquid Liner - Black Glamour

Popped into Priceline during the weekend just to go buy some new makeup products!
I saw in the Rimmel London area, some products were on sale and lucky for me that I needed a new liquid eyeliner to try out after my Dollywink Liquid Liner sadly ran out. I had to choose between 2 liquid eyeliners, one was just $2-$3 extra and was actually smaller so I just bought this one.

Bought the one in Black Glamour. Just the usual black liquid eyeliner.

Price: $9.56

Most liquid eyeliners were actually around the $10 price range so I just made up my mind to buy and try!
 It contained 3.5ml which isnt too bad. I think the Dollywink has more product though. So the Dollywink would be more worth it!

Packaging: 4/5

When I bought this and went home I didnt realise that it was already opened by someone else. The part where the lid and where the product is stored would usually be taped together but mine was broken so that people could open it. I was too lazy to refund it so I just left it. So if anyone is going to buy this make sure it is securely taped before buying! Now onto the applicator..
The brush tip is actually pretty thin but can also make thick lines. What I like about this is that it is a brush applicator and it is really easy to use (in my opinion). If you didnt know, my eyes are actually uneven, one has 2 creases on my eyelid so I have to make my eyeliner thicker than the other and this eyeliner is easy to do so. I can easily make a thin line on one eye and a  thicker line on the other.


-Dries matte
-Lasts a long time without smudging, fading or flaking if untouched throughout the day!
-Really easy to remove


-Takes a while to dry if you put too much product
-It's not waterproof, I repeat! It will smudge if water gets onto it.
-Can be hard to use the applicator if you arnt used to it

Lasts a long time even after my eyelid starts to get oily, it's amazing!
I really do recommend this to anyone who's looking for a liquid liner for an everyday use! I replaced this with my Dollywink and I'm in love with it at the moment, though Dollywink is still my all time favourite liquid liner!

Nails of the Week!

It's more of a deep peach colour.

Bought this at MyChemist because it was on sale and I was looking for a peachy/coraly colour!

The colour isnt exactly 100% the same as the picture, on my nails it looks like a bright pink/orange kind of like a neon. Maybe because it crashes with my olive skin. But 3 coats of it is enough to make it opaque.

Latest Haulage!

Went out shopping today! After saving up for my camera I'm now free to buy my makeup again!

Ecotools Powder Brush- $17.99 @ Priceline

I was contemplating between the powder brush or the set that had the blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, eyebrow/lash, concealer brushes for $34 but I didnt have enough so I just bought the powder. Finally bought a brush for my powder foundation. 

Rimmel London Glam'Eyes Professional Liquid Liner in 001 Black Glamour- $9.56 @ Priceline

Needed a new liquid eyeliner and I saw this on sale so I decided to try it out.

Rimmel London I Love Lasting Finish in 053 Apricot Punch- $2.95 @ MyChemist

Saw this on the MyChemist catalogue, used to be $5.95 so I saved $3! I usually only buy nail polish if it is under $3. I bought the Apricot Punch because I really love peachy/coraly nail colours. 

Ulta3 Nail Polish in Earl Grey- $2 @ Target

Was walking through the aisles and saw a grey nail polish which seems really rare so I bought it and the grey colour reminded me of Totoro, im hoping to do some Totoro nail art sometime.

Storage Boxes- $2.80 Each @ Daiso

Since I bought more nail polishes I had no more space on my desk so I bought the white stackable boxes and for the yellow box, it has a magnet at the back to stick it on a fridge and lucky for me my desk is actually next to the fridge so it would come in handy to store my pens & pencils!

Maybelline One by One Mascara- Blackest Black

Bought the Washable Maybelline One by One Mascara awhile back when it was on sale. But I was waiting until I got my camera so I could get good pictures of the wand. 
Got the one in Blackest Black
Back in the day's when I used my iphone camera...
On the back it claimed that it was:
  •  Exclusive lash catcher brush catches, coats and de-clumps every single lash for our most refined volume from root-to-tip.
  • Instant clump-free volume.
  • Ophthalmologist tested
  • Contact lens safe
This is actually the second mascara that I have ever used so I can only compare it with my first (Maybelline The Falsies).

Price: $10

Like I said, it was on sale at Priceline for $10. I had to choose between all the Maybelline mascaras but I chose the Maybelline One by One because I heard some really good reviews on it on Youtube so I decided to try it and see how it goes. I also bought the washable one because the waterproof mascaras are a pain to take off. 

Packaging: 4/5

Just like most of the other Maybelline mascaras, they have the same tube shape which I find pretty cool considering that it makes me want to collect them all! 
When you open the tube you get this massive wand and sadly leftover mascara product at the end that I end up scraping off (is there any mascara that doesnt do this?).
Anyways the wand is actually bendy which I like and has rubber bristles! (also a bonus for me)

Close up of the bristles.

Product: 5/5

The mascara really does lengthen & volumise your lashes if you give it a few coats. I only do 1 coat of mascara because I like the way it defines my lashes without it looking un-natural. The thing about this mascara is it makes it look like you're wearing false lashes! So I put on the mascara and left it until my mum came back home and she thought I was wearing false lashes, pretty amazing right?
But what I really like about this mascara is that it lasts the whole day without smudging and its not waterproof and I have super oily eyelids... I love this mascara. But this does flake a lot, I found so much flakes underneath my eye at the end of the day, but as long as it doesnt smudge Im happy so I didn't really mind the flaking.
This is also really easy to remove, just removing it with water or makeup remover, I remove it with warm water.


This is my favourite mascara currently!

Super Purdy's Giveaway Package

The package came in a very cute box well packaged and all.

Opened the box and saw that the Rimmel Nail Polish broke, it was also still fresh (polish wasnt dried up) so I figured that it broke during its journey to my house. It covered most of the other products but I ended up cleaning it all up.

But it was alright since I do have a nail polish similar to this colour :)

I can't wait to try them all out!

Thanks again Super Purdy :,)

Update;; New Camera!

My birthday was a few days ago (August 20) and I recently got a new camera (today) :D
I went into JBHiFi on the 18th and got told that it was all out of stock but a JBHiFi store from another suburb nearby had some instock so I got it ordered to be delivered into my JBHiFi store nearby.
Costed me $240 (on sale) which inluded a 4gb SDHC card.
Got a text during school today letting me know it had arrived. So I pretty much was anticipating it all day during school. 
But yeah I got it picked up and you guys can now look forward to some good quality pictures! 
Say goodbye to my Nikon Coolpix s3000 and hello to my Olympus SH-25MR!
Might be posting some videos on Youtube if I can think of video ideas.

Haul- Rimmel Xmas 2011 Pack

Bought the Rimmel Xmas 2011 Pack a few weeks ago at Priceline just for $9, it was marked down from $24.95 to $9 which was a very good deal even though the products were probably on the shelves for a year. But I needed a new eyeliner and instead of buying an eyeliner for $9 I got to have nailpolish, mascara, eyeshadow and eyeliner for the same price also including a cute bag that stored them all! 

So inside the bag it contained

  • I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polish in 'Cranberry Zest'
  • Glam'Eyes Eyeshadow Quad in 'Smokey Noir'
  • The Max Bold Curves Mascara in 'Black'
  • Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in 'Jet Black'

Tried to make the pictures similar haha. [[Sorry for the blurriness]]

The G Mesh Bag that stored all the products, it was very shiney and flowy. It makes a pretty cool makeup bag for travelling.

I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polish in '066 Cranberry Zest'

It was a hot pink colour on the nails which also smelt like cherries!
I wasn't really into dark colours on my nails but I like doing nail art so this colour might come in handy.

Glam'Eyes Eyeshadow Quad in 'Smokey Noir'

When I saw that the pack came with this, I immediately wanted this. I only thing I usually wear on my eyes is just a very sheer eyeshadow and eyeliner. But I did have a thing for dark, neutral eyeshadows. The colour on the far right made me want it more.

The Max Bold Curves Mascara in 'Black'

Saw this and wasn't really sure if I was going to like it or not, I mean I already had a masara favourite (Maybelline One By coming soon) so I was like, sure why not try a new mascara?!

Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in 'Jet Black'

I pretty much died on the inside when I saw that this was also in the bag. I had been wanting to buy this eyeliner for so long after many people raving about it online. So of course I bought the pack just because of this.

I will be doing reviews on each of the products in the future! 

Like my new signature? :)

EOS Lip Balm- Honeysuckle Honeydew & Summer Fruit

Favourite lip balms of all time! :)

I've heard so much hype about the EOS lip balms, about how it's so adorable in its egg shape and its wide range of different colours and flavours.
EOS stands for the "Evolution of smooth" the brand specialises in lipbalms, creams and lotions.
On the plastic packaging the EOS lipbalms are 100% Natural, 95% Organic and not tested on animals. Now that already attracts to me already. 
I did a little researching and went on their website.
  • Long-lasting moisture [[Long lasting stood out to me the most!]]
  • Shea butter & vitamin E [[Good for the heart and skin]]
  • Smoothes on clear 
  • New smooth sphere precisely glides on to lips [[Makes it extra easy to use]]
  • Twist-off top [[It helps keep the top on, the tops that you pull off can easily be opened]]
  • Gluten-free [[My friend has a gluten allergy so this would be perfect for her!]]
  • Paraben-free
  • Petrolatum-free
  • Phthalate-free

So my dad went back to Hong Kong and I gave him a list of makeup products to get from SaSa. He came back with my EOS lipbalms in Summer Fruit and Honeysuckle Honeydew.
Basically I let my dad buy any of the EOS lipbalms since I didn't have a particular flavour/colour I wanted, I was maybe wanting the yellow one because it was yellow (favourite colour) and it was a lemon flavour (I love lemons haha) but the SPF part really put me off, i know its good and all but I have this OCD/habit in thinking that SPF makes the skin look greasy (like in foundations or sunscreen) I have no idea how that would work in lipbalm form though, but I'll let you know that my P.O.V is way off. 

Price: 39 HK Dollars (Around $5 in AUD)

The price is definitely worth it. Even though its quite expensive if you think about it. Most lipbalms are around $3-$4 but I would be willing to buy it bbecause its just soo much cuter and easier to use than most lipbalms.

Packaging: 5/5

The packaging is just so cute, the colours are also adorable, I just want to collect them all because they would look cool as a decoration on my desk haha. 

Product: 5/5


-Tastes like their name/flavour. No joke, I mostly only use EOS just because I like to taste it.
-The smell is heavenly aswell
-Moisturises well! Makes my lips smooth and soft the day after :D
-Sosososo cute packaging.
-Easy to apply on the lips, I dont even have to open my mouth to apply it.


-Hard to get in Australia


Overall this is a must have product that you can use everyday, just pop it into your bag and use it. I was happy with my lips after the use and the taste and smell makes me want to eat it, even though I already do.

Nails of The Week !

Recently bought a Rimmel Xmas Pack 2011 which was marked down to $9, it contained a few makeup products which I'll be posting later on this week or next week!
 So one of the products was the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nail Polish in 066 Cranberry Zest.
It claims to have a fruit scent when dry. The smell reminds me of a medicine smell. Kind of like the cherry flavoured starbursts.
It's a hot pink colour and is very opaque in just 2-3 coats I only put 2 coats since I don't like the thick feeling. But you can still see my nail whites through it.
Anyways I didn't really want to make a review about this so I'm off!
