It’s Maritime, young lady. :) Get ready to set sail on a Trio hour tour aboard the USS Glam’Eyes. The ship is bound for the The Land of Cheap Makeup Thrills, and Captain Rimmel’s at the helm.

I absolutely love Rimmel’s Glam’Eyes Mono shadow singles, so I’ve really been looking forward to trying their new Glam’Eyes line of trios ($5 each). Maritime, one of four trios in the line, is a sea of blues designed to bring out the best in brown eyes.

These shadows, like the singles, feel super soft and pack loads of pigment, while still blending like a dream. As good as that sounds, though, I actually think the singles apply a tad more evenly. With these, I get a few uneven patches of color along with some fallout beneath my eyes, but considering how affordable they are, it’s not a deal breaker for me.

If you’re in the mood to try some new eye colors but don’t care to invest a lot of money into it now, you could do A LOT worse than the Rimmel Glam’Eyes Trio Eye Shadows.

PRICE: $5 each

Old school Tabs

Happy Friday Eve! :) Is it just me, or has this week gone by in a blur? I’m not complaining, of course.

Question for the pet people among us: do you keep old photos of your furry pals? I was looking through some old pictures of Tabs and found this one from 2008. I think he was in the later stages of kittenhood here and was about half as rotund as he is now (feel free to ignore my hideous Thanksgiving-themed workout clothes).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

      LOL… he gets that a lot. It may also be a combination of me being small. I’m only 5’1 so Tabs looks HUGE when he’s chillin’ on my tummy.

  2. I wish they replaced one of the blues with a darker…maybe a shimmery navy blue? That would look really nice. hahah not for me! The past two weeks have dragged by suuuper slowly in my mind.

    Yep, this week has flown by in one big, water-logged blur! Karen, are you as over this rain as I am? Supposedly it’s clearing up for the weekend.

    I don’t really have pictures of Missy. She’s not open to posing for pictures and I don’t have a decent camera. I just have a few images of her on my cell phone. She seems to have “expanded” at about the same rate as Tabs, though. It couldn’t be that we’re spoiling them, could it?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Heidi,

      YES, I’m so over this psycho weather. Did you have the alternating hail/sunshine combo the other day?

      Aww… I like how you put “expanded” in quotes. Maybe Missy and Tabs are just “big boned.” :)

      • Heidi says:

        Got hail and pouring rain just as I was going out to do the one errand I had to run this week, bank and mailbox. Made for some really fun driving.

        Did you guys lose power at any point. We were out for 3 1/2 hours on Tuesday night!

    Aw, that’s a shame that there’s fallout. I just can’t deal with it! It’s too irritating.

    That’s such a cute photo! Old cat photos are great. Believe me, I’ve taken and saved approximately 85792837598273 photos of my kitties over the years. It’s really fun to look back at them :).

  5. ki says:

    Look at your nails! Loving the yellow :D and tabs looks cute enough to eat!

  6. gio says:

    It’s a shame about the fallout, the colors are very pretty!

    Wow your lashes look fnatastic Karen :], mind sharing your mascara/curler/magic secret?
    Kaelin recently posted … HARO out there

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kaelin,

      Wish I could say I had a secret… honestly all I did here was curl them and put about five layers of MAC Zoomblack on, LOL! Yes, I went a little crazy. :)

      • Kaelin Chan says:

        PSH. thats nothing, girl let me tell you about crazy. 3 laters of loreal voluminious in Carbon black and 3 layers of Majolica Majorica lash expander frame plus.
        Total layers:6
        Amount of crazy: unheard of

  8. MIss Preity says:

    This morning, I decided to wear blue and turquoise. I wanted to put eyeshadow in the same color but I had no idea on how to put it. So, I put nothing just mascara and khol.
    But next time, I know what to do ;)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Miss Preity,

      You could try doing the turquoise on the inner lid and the blue on the outer and then maybe your favorite neutral matte in the crease. That’s the easiest way I know to do color, and its super wearable.

  9. Advah says:

    Hmm the colours are a bit pale for me (would have liked some navy in there) but I agree with the quality of Rimmel’s eyeshadows. I recently picked up a taupish/shimmery brown eyeshadow in the sales and it’s GREAT! Exactly the flattering neutral-y shade I’d been after for years.

    And yes, in the family we have at least as many pictures of us as of the cats. Well, they’re part of the family after all!

  10. Shasha says:

    Wow, make dem brown eyez POP!! It looks beautiful!

    Unfortunately I don’t remember ever taking pictures of the pets let alone cats I had. I do wish I did though. O how I do wish I did…
    Much love

  11. YadiQ says:

    I totally reminisce with pics of my pets when they were tiny and baby – I love tracking their growth and remembering things happening at that time!

  12. Savannah says:

    Oh Tabs! He’s so cute!
    I’m going to pass on the trio, there isn’t much of a difference in the shades.

    awww, that last pic is such an adorable pic….love it.

    I tried Rimmel’s regular e/s and they were terrible. Seems like these new ones are good quality

  14. Tiffany says:

    awww, Tabs looks like a great cuddler. I so wish I had had a digital camera when my dog was a puppy :( all I had were cell phone pics and they are long gone :(

    • Karen says:

      The only pics I have from when my dog was a puppy are film shots! It’s hard to believe how far cameras have come in the last ten years…

      Anywho, have you had a chance to play with your new camera lately?

  15. Alka says:

    I have oodles of old kitty pics from every year of my Wally’s life. He’s such a camera sl*t that it hasn’t been hard to accumulate a vast library of photos. I swear he has camera-dar….

  16. Kim says:

    Oh, he is definitely on the slim side in that picture! Of course, I prefer my kitties to be a bit round so I think he’s perfect now. :) Hey, nice dupe on the Yellow Brick Road polish, btw!

  17. Amber says:

    I have ridiculous quantities of old kitty photos. It’s a good thing I haven’t adopted a kitten since I was in elementary school, or there would be five times as many!

    HAHAHA – what a great picture! I love your yellow nails.

    I will have to investigate the Rimmel shadows. I still need to try out their lipsticks.

  21. Amanda says:

    I absolutely have old pics of the furry babies. Since the older dog is 12, and I got her as a tiny puppy I have lots and lots of pics. From 5 pounds to 70, and from solid brown to grey face, paws, and belly…..

    • Karen says:

      Gosh I love puppy pics. For some weird reason I have TONS of pictures of Shauna’s chubby puppy paws, LOL! Do you have those too? Or am I alone in my weirdness?

  22. Nina says:

    that is such an adorable picture! i love it and i love kitteehhs sleeping on my belly too!

    • Karen says:

      LOL… it was cute when he was small. Having 18 pounds of cat chunk resting on your bladder first thing in the morning is another story, haha!

      • Nina says:

        i think thats why linus doesnt want to do belly rests … hes far too heavy and is probably self conscious about it! :)

  23. Vicki says:

    Good colours on you Karen. I have one of the singles in a bronze/brown colour, love the colour but it does leave fall out under my eyes.

    I have TONS of photos of my beloved cat,who actually looks a lot like Tabs, she could be his little sister. She’s never terribly keen about it but it doesn’t stop me snapping away, although she has something approximating an evil death stare on most photos!

  24. Amee says:

    ohhh my my!!!!! look at that pic….its adorable… both of you make very wonderful pair Karen n Tabs :)

    The blues are so pretty on you! I’m not brave enough to venture into blues because I find them hard to pull off. I’m more of a neutrals girl myself. Speaking of I bought mac e/s in shroom and I am in love!

  26. Melissa says:

    I’m ALWAYS afraid to try blue on my eyes (I have super dark brown eyes) but I feel like wearing blue goes back to 80′s and I don’t want to look like I’m wearing makeup from the 80′s! I will look into this and I may take the plunge into trying it! :)

  27. AnieJ says:

    My god, Tabs is soooo cute! I just got a new cat and have been taking quite a few pics of him and the old one together on the bed. I got one of both tucked in under the same blanket, ADORABLE!

    On a different note, I’m not sure why, but Rimmel can do no wrong in my book. It’s too affordable to not be worth it. So yeh, another win!

  28. Ariel says:

    Pretty colors…but all I can think of is 80s themed parties when I see blue eyeshadow :)

    I’ve been eyeing the smokey plum quad. Hmmm…maybe I’ll use that as my incentive to walk the mile to Walgreens rather than picking it up while out in the car running errands.
