Rimmel Review & Photo Shoot with Patrick Massou!

Rimmel 25 Hour Lasting Finishing Foundation | Floral bracelet: Kelley Nicole Jewelry Collection
Photographer: Patrick Massou | Foundation: Rimmel 25 Hour Lasting Finish Foundation | Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte, Shade: Sandstorm

Hello, my lovelies!! Today is a 90 degree day in L.A. which brings me to the real hot topic of foundations. There are always so many options to choose from at the drugstore! My love for Rimmel’s Match Perfection medium coverage foundation is still going strong as my fave foundation, thanks to its skin-like qualities!! However, when it comes to shooting I like to wear a full coverage foundation. That said, I decided to put Rimmel’s 25 Hour Lasting Foundation with Comfort Serum to the test, in my photo shoot this week with photographer, Patrick Massou. He is one of my favorite photographers and it is always such a pleasure to create with him!  It was a perfect sunny day for us in Hollywood! While the weather was mid-70’s during the day of the shoot, my skin felt like it reached 90 degrees; in part due to working up a sweat from time to time.  A great thing about Rimmel’s 25 Hour foundation is that it does have sunscreen in it, with a spf of 20.  Generally, for shooting it is best to go with a high-definition HD foundation. But since our shoot took place outside, I needed the spf and super appreciate that it helped protect my skin.  All in all, I give this foundation an A++!!!  I love the smell! The scent is exactly the same as my Rimmel Match Perfection foundation that I adore. 25 Hour applied evenly and left me with a lovely dewy finish; with just the right amount of coverage for the shoot.  This beautiful skin-in-a-bottle foundation also claims to be heat and sweat proof!  The foundation did live up to its claims and lasted all day AND night! Well into the 12th hour of wear, it looked just as good as when I had put it on in the morning! 25 Hour will be my summer skin go-to foundation for sure! Last summer was a hot one in L.A. and this sweat and heat proof foundation will be just the trick for keeping it from melting away 🙂  Also, my face felt moisturized all day, and I am guessing that is because of the Comfort Serum in which it comes equipped.  I heart serums, so this is the bonus plus in the A++ I give to this all-around excellent foundation! Bravo!

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder | Shade: Sandstorm

In my review video, I discussed Rimmel’s Stay Matte Powder.  This powder is now a new favorite!  The shade I wear is Sandstorm and I’ve been wearing this powder nearly every day. Since I am a lover of the dewy look, a little goes a long way for me and I like to use it sparingly in my t-zone.  It is also a great shade for the under eye area!  I applied the powder only once in the morning and once towards the end of my shoot, to soak up some sweat beads from the calories I was burning in the sun. This is an outstanding powder and one that I will use over and over again!

Rimmel Stay Glossy 3D Lip Gloss | Shade: Popcorn for 2

Lastly, I am LAAAAAAA-VING Rimmel’s 3D lippie in the shade Popcorn for 2! This lippie is a dream-sicle on a doe-foot stick! Seriously, this color is an indescribable-iridescent-y duo-chrome shade that makes for the purrrrr-fect pout when smack-er-dabbed in the center of your bottom lip.  I hope they come out with oodles more of these 3D duo-chrome shades.  If this lippie had some fe-nomme lip venom in it, then it would be the super duper ultimate for pout perfection.  Just saying! 😉 Hands down, this lippie in this shade is SO gorgeous!

Springtime State of Mind & Smelling the Milani Roses

Milani Rose Blushes | Shades (Left to Right): Romantic Rose, Coral Cove, Tea Rose

This evening I took my Chihuahuas out for their nightly walk on this perfect 65 degree night, and I caught the most beautiful wiff of fresh flowers & honeysuckle! A springtime state of mind has mos def set in.  It also made me get to work on the edit of my Milani Rose Blush review video! These limited edition blushes are just stunning! The rose embossing is a dream come true!  They were love at first sight, but believe it or not, Romantic Rose and her  evil, unopened, rosy step sisters were almost returned. Yep. I said it. And I never return makeup.  Even after several attempts, it just would not swatch for me in my NYC hotel room last month. It felt like I had to dig into Romantic Rose with my finger to get any sort of color payoff. Yes, I almost returned them but did not feel like walking back to CVS in NYC’s 19 degree weather.  The following morning I decided to try Romantic Rose on my face with my blush brush. Thank goodness for that NYC weather, because despite not swatching well, it picked up lots of pigmented colour

Milani Rose Blush | Shade: Romantic Rose

onto my brush! All hail, Romantic Rose is now my new holy grail blush!!  In this video, I swatch and review for the first time the other two shades, Coral Cove, and Tea Rose.  These blushes definitely have swatching minds of their own, but wear like a dream come true!  After reviewing them, I cannot wait to wear these gorgeous shades in some future makeup looks. Further, these dreamy drugstore blushes are made with real rose petals!  To top things off, you can sometimes find them Buy 1, get one 50% off at your local CVS or Walgreen’s. Perhaps I am smelling a future rose Milani makeup tutorial with Coral Cove and Tea Rose! #springtime #stateofmind

This pic is from my recent Spring Makeup Tutorial, in which I paired a glossy-eyed look with Milani’s Romantic Rose:

This look was so much fun to create, and it really would not have felt like a Spring makeup tutorial had it not been for my new holy grail Milani Romantic Rose Blush!! I hope they come out with a rainbow array of these rose blush colors! xooxoxox

Smelling the Milani Roses Review Video:

Ode to the First Day of Spring!

Today is the first day of Spring, so I thought it would be the perfect day to write about my Spring Makeup Tutorial, requested by my beautiful subscriber, Sandra Paulline! Thank you, Sandra! What a great request! I just love seeing all of the beautiful springtime flowers in full bloom outside! This glossy-eyed look I wanted to keep very simple, dewy, and natural, with a pop of color on the lips.  The products I used to achieve this look are listed below in my youtube video. One of my favorites was the Milani Rose Blush in the shade, Romantic Rose! It is the perfect color for any kind of look, and would be great on any skin tone! Their embossed rose blushes are a dream and just the perfect, affordable, springtime blush to have in your makeup collection! Stay tuned for my Milani Rose Blush Mini-Review Video and blog post :))))) xooxoxox
