The holidays are right around the corner — and red lips always make a statement! Personally, I love red lips all year round, but feel even more inclined to wear the hot color during the holidays, — it’s just so festive! If you are shy about wearing red lips, take the holidays as a perfect opportunity to wear the sensational color. Red lipstick can scare some people if they have not found the perfect red for their skin tone and undertone. Today, I have quite a few budget-friendly lip colors …

I have often stopped in my local drugstore and recently saw an article where the ever so talented makeup artist Molly R. Stern shows the readers how to wear Kate Moss’ lipstick in number 15 (front center pictured above). I have been wearing Rimmel London‘s bronzer for years, as I remember it being mentioned in Allure magazine in the ‘Drugstore Beauty Finds’ section… and Rimmel London is a beauty find for sure!
Bringing the “London look” stateside, Rimmel London is edgy and energetic, just like London gals. Channel your …
I love London… the city, the style and of course THE MAKEUP!! I was excited to get products from Rimmel. As I opened the box there were so many goodies for me to try. Any brand that has Kate Moss as a spokesmodel definitely gets my attention.
Speaking of Kate Moss, I will start with the lipsticks (pictured above). Lasting Finish Lipsticks – Kate Moss Collection ($5.19) to be exact. I love the funky packaging, with Kate’s signature on the tube. I received three shades to try: a “Kate Moss” red, …

The buzz word this season? PRIMERS! Every brand from Proactiv to Vera Wang has one. Last time, I reviewed the Proactiv Smoothing Primer. Next primer to try on my crusade for the ‘holy grail’ of all face primers is the Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer — this primer claims to deliver 5 in 1 results that claim to:
- Smooth and Resurface Skin
- Hydrate any dryness and protect skin
- Mattify to reduce shine
- Reduce appearance of large pores
- Even skin tone
I have tried so many primers in the past I …
There are honestly so many mascaras on the market that claim to do this and that, but Rimmel’s new trifecta of offerings is interesting for several reasons.
One of the brand’s new fall 2011 mascaras includes a “cup runneth over” promise: Sexy Curves Full Body Mascara ($7.49). The promise is actually a little bit outrageous! 70% more voluptuous curls that last for up to 16 hours. It is also a volumizing mascara, and promises to plump up the lashes. With Sexy Curves Mascara, the spiral brush brushes against the lashes and gives them a …
Sticky lip glosses vex me and usually require me to use Carmex before I apply them on. That is not how lip gloss is supposed to work. When it comes to texture and finish preferences, some women like a bright gloss; others prefer a frost, but I prefer a pearly finish. Rimmel’s new Stay Glossy 6-Hour lip gloss is product that does exactly that.
Rimmel’s Stay Glossy 6-Hour lip glosses have an applicator that softens the lips and an ingredient that makes them last up to six hours. I’ve done swatches …

This is hair with edge, and Redken’s hairstylist Giuntoli says, “The look is down, when it is typically up, resulting in a youthful, casual after-wedding look that’s flattering and flirty.” We think this look would look ravishing on Kate Middleton.
To achieve the look, prep hair to add texture and extra hold with Redken …
