Haul and Review

I needed some foundation so I made a stop at Ulta to get some but they didn't have any. I was also told by the associate that they only get like 4 deepest deep foundations at a time but that is a conversation for another post. I decided to get some Rimmel Eye Glistner pencils after watching EmsyJay do an orange look.

The pink is Girls Only! and the orange is Flaunt.

Both colors are really pretty go on smooth and have a slight shimmer to them. I really wanted to use the orange Saturday but for the life of couldn't make it work. After I applied it to my lid it was kind of wet. I blended it out a bit but it left my brush really nasty and clumpy. When I applied my shadow my brush was clumpy and nasty again and so was my shadow. I couldn't really pat my shadow on and it clumped up in certain spots and I couldn't blend it. I tried 3 different brush and nothing worked. My friend Meagan Shea suggested that I use a small flat synthetic brush to avoid the clumpy nasty brush and application issues. I really like these crayons so I'm going to try her suggestion and see if I can make it work. If anyone has used them before I would love to hear your experiences.

I'm a sucker for pretty colors so I had to get this. Plus I love you can get 2 looks from one palette. This is CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in Firecracker.

It's a matte green, pink and white. Very pretty and soft. I'm going to try to use it with my Rimmel Crayon in Girls Only! once I get my new brush.

@ spicy brown girl - At first I thought the color payoff might not be too great but with the right base I think it will work.

@ slvrlips - Right!! The associate just looked clueless talking about she doesn't understand why they only get 4. I'm like why don't you ask them to send more and while you're at it get some more Iman products. *rolls eyes very hard*

@ yummy - I got it at CVS for 4.99. CoverGirl has some really nice colors out for the summer.

thanks i guess i'm not at the right cvs. be sure to tell us about the rimmel pencils when you use them. i was in love with the green (looked goldish) but it was way to slick/wet. i felt it would have prob worked over udpp, but i wasn't trying to drop 6.99 for it! LOL --looking forward to your review!

@ yummy - I just realized not all CVS's have it. I went back to CVS got it from and the display is gone.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who thought the Rimmel pencils were too wet. The reason why I got it was because of the goldish look to them. It was buy one get one free at Ulta so it wasn't too much of a loss. Even with UDPP it was too wet. They're so pretty I need to figure something out and make them work.

I like that CoverGirl trio! That's something I can use. I hardly have any matte eyeshadows.
