Merry Christmas Eve! For whatever reason, possibly because there is no snow in Cleveland, it does not feel like Christmas time. But what better way is there to get in the holiday spirit other than getting glammed up and throwing on your best party dress? The new holiday collection from Rimmel London will help me do just that. The collection includes foundation, blush/highlighter, eye shadow, mascara and lipgloss. The products are all perfect for going all glam or for day time as well! I was sent a few of the Stay Glossy Lip Glosses and a few of Glam’Eyes Mono Eye Shadows to review for the holidays.From the Stay Glossy line, I tried Stay My Rose, Fabulous!, Timeless Allure and Jewel in the Crown. The glosses are a nice size and retail around $4.99 each. The Soft Extend lip-sculpting wand is a nice size that makes application easy because it helps you to evenly coat your lips instead of a blob of gloss just bursting out. The colors are all shimmery and pretty, and have just enough sparkle to provide a playful look. The shimmer does not overwhelm and the gloss is smooth and remains in place, without drying or being sticky. Out of the four I was sent, my favorite was Timeless Allure, which is a rich berry color that actually looked nice with my fair skin, without overwhelming my face. The Stay Glossy Lipgloss comes in 13 different shades and range from soft and light, to dramatic and bold. If you are looking for a gloss that is sleek and pretty for the holidays, I highly reccomend you go out and give Stay Glossy a try.
I was also sent a few of the Glam’Eyes Eye Shadow Collection to try as well. The shadows are smooth and rich and most importantly FUN. I tried Posh Peacock, Spicy Bronze and Jet Black. The colors stayed put, did not crease or turn oily. The pigment is crisp and just thick enough that a light application is noticeable. Apply more if you want a bolder look, like with Posh Peacock for example. Each shadow retails for around $3.49 at major retailers nation-wide.
