NOTD: L'Oreal Peach Neglige

I have a quick post of a NOTD that I did a few days ago. This is L'Oreal Peach Neglige from the Colour Riche Les Blancs Spring 2014 collection. I used 2 coats and it applied very opaque and not difficult to use. This is a beautiful shade for Spring/Summer and I had good wear for about 4-5 days.

Maybelline Color Show Bleached Neons Summer 2014 Collection (4 Shades) - Photos and Swatches

I was really excited to find these new Maybelline Color Show nail polishes recently at Rite-Aid. There are from the Bleached Neons summer collection and I bought 4 shades out of the 6. The polishes were a little difficult to work with, which was surprising since I never have trouble with Color Show polishes. It wasn't terrible, I just needed to use thin coats. I used two coats for each swatches, see more below!

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Shadow Paints (3 Shades) - Photos and Swatches

Today I have a few swatches of the Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paints. These have amazing staying power and are super pigmented. I have used shadows like this in the past, and they have either been too thin consistency or too glittery and make a huge mess. These from Rimmel are look really metallic when you first apply them, but they dry down to a great looking shadow. See more photos below!

Today I have photos and swatches of these new eyeshadows from Essence Cosmetics. These are metallic shadows that stay put on your eyes all day long.

Smashbox Waterproof Kohl Liner and Always Sharp 3D Liner - Photos, Swatches, and Review

Today I have photos and swatches of two eyeliners from Smashbox. One is a waterproof kohl eyeliner and the other one is a shimmer liner. I a big fan of liquid liner, but hardly ever use pencil liner since it always seems to smear and smudge on my eyes. Seriously, no matter what I do eyeliner will make my eyes water and get all over my contacts and make a mess. So these needed to be great and not move around. Find out my thoughts below!
