Where are all my drugstore makeup loving girls at? This week I’m doing a ton o’ testing, testing one-two-three on products from drugstore lines like Rimmel, Physician’s Formula, Cover Girl, N.Y.C. New York Color and Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy (what a mouthful!).
Bring on the budget reviews!
I’m in the thick of testing and will post more extensive reviews of these products over the next couple days, but I couldn’t wait to show you a few pictures of the Carmindy stuff I swatched today.
Making a good first impression
Check out the intense color of the Forever Stay Eye Pencils in Blue Indigo (matte royal blue) and Prue (matte violet).
I couldn’t believe how smoothly the tips glided across the back of my hand…
Now, those of you with a highlighter addiction, please stand up. I’m right there with you, girl. I sure hope Carmindy’s Natural Higlighters deliver. I’ll let you know soon, but for now…
…each pan comes with two shimmery cream highlighters. Pink Luster (shimmery pink and white) looks like a fab match for cool-toned ladies; Gold Luster might be good for warmer skin.
Will they be good enough to shimmer me timbers? LOL! Sorry, I couldn’t resist a bad pun.
Last in line for testing are the Ultra Soothing Lip Tints in Cranberry, Pomegranate and Melon.
All three applied surprisingly sheer on my hand, which would have normally set off my lipgloss alarm, but I’ll reserve judgment for the end of my testing.
Swatches from left to right starting from the top row: Cranberry, Pomegranate and Melon Ultra Soothing Lip Tint. Middle Row: Gold Luster and Pink Luster highlighter duos. Last row: Prune and Indigo Blue.
I’ve tried a few Carmindy products before and liked them. Do you think the Forever Stay Eye Pencils look like winners from these swatches?
Here comes the sun
Finally, a sunny day!
For the first time in what feels like eons the sun returned to the Bay Area. It’s still a little chilly outside, but I think it’s warm enough for me to bundle up and go for a run.
When I get back I have to tackle a shizz load of reading for school, sigh. How’s your Tuesday shaping up? Are you busy or just chillin’?
