This is what I picked up recently at the drugstore and some first impressions:

Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer Eyeliner, In The Nude – I love this liner! They’ve change the packaging a bit; it wasn’t a twist up liner with a built-in smudger before but the formula seems to still be the same. This liner is soft, creamy, and very pigmented and it lasts a long time. It is great for the waterline. This is a high quality pencil eyeliner that is affordable and super effective as well. It makes my eyes wide open and bright.

Maybelline Color Elixir Lipgloss – This is the only one I own and I love the smooth and hydrating texture. I have Celestial Coral and it is a pinky-coral with warm undertones and a glossy shine. The heart-shaped brush is super cute. It goes on very shiny and is not very sticky.

Rimmel Nude Collection by Kate – I’m a big fan of the Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick formulation. They are super creamy and comfortable on the lips and long lasting. I have mine in #45 Rose Nude and it is a beautiful nude color. Complements my skin tone very well!

Rimmel London Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liners – I absolutely love these lip liners. I picked up East End Snob and Natural. They are super cheap and I paid under $5.00 CAD each. They are very creamy and pigmented and perfect for lining lips or just coloring them in. East End Snob is actually a repurchased and I have a mini review you can read here.

Marcelle Nano Eyebrow Liner in Medium Brown – This was such an amazing find for me! I’ve had great success with Marcelle products in the past and this is really a fantastic brow pencil. I love the waxy texture that makes the application super easy and the result is super natural!

Essie all in one – I’m not sure how new this is but it’s new to me. This unique treatment is a base coat, a top coat and a strengthener. I’ve only used it a couple times so far and it’s okay, nothing special but I’ll play around with it some more.

Would love to hear your thoughts on what you’ve try from the list above!
