Rimmel London Volume Flash Scandal Eyes Mascara | Review and Swatches

Saturday, 13 September 2014

Rimmel mascaras have been my all time favourites. I have always loved their formula, consistency and the fact that they have never dried up on me. My first mascara, Extra Super Lash, was from Rimmel and till date it is one of the best mascaras I have ever tried under such an affordable price tag (almost half of other drugstore mascaras and even Scandal Eyes!). So, when I ran out of my last Rimmel mascara, Scandal Eyes was their latest offering. Therefore, I picked one up but in the waterproof version for it was priced equal to the regular one and it was about time I gave waterproof mascaras a whirl.

Pond's White Beauty Daily Spot-less Lightening Cream - 220 PKR*
I have a combination/dry skin type and my main skin concern has always been dry patches which I have been successfully battling for over past six months with some major changes in my skin care routine. However, the stubborn discoloration that dry patches leave behind just gets worse with sun exposure. Sun has always been more damaging to my skin than an average person, resulting in a very sensitive skin type and long term exposure just aggregates dryness and blotchiness on my skin. Back in the school days my face and neck never matched my body at all, by being always 5-6 shades darker (Not exaggerating at all, imagine how terrible that is!). Now that my sun exposure has considerably reduced, the shade still varies between 3-4 shades darker than my actual complexion. I am not a fairness freak, but I have never been able to achieve a balance between my overall complexion. The closest I get is only during summer vacations when I stay at home for a month or two. The difference even then remains of 2-3 shades.

Sweet Touch England Lipstick 761 Matte | Review and Swatches

Sweet Touch England Lipstick 761 Matte | Review and Swatches
Sweet Touch England Lipstick 761 Matte - 270 PKR*
As soon as I twisted up and swatched Sweet Touch England Lipstick 761 Matte, I was like 'Whoa! This shade looks so similar to Lime Crime's Babette!', google that and you'll know what I'm talking about. 761 (I wish it had a proper name!) is a nude peachy-coral shade with warm, bright undertones which makes it a little rebellious than an ordinary nude. I personally steer clear of nudes because I don't find most of them flattering on my own complexion and style. The only nudes that I'd ever pick would ideally be on a warm pink scale, but this clearly was different with a bold twist. I was never much of a lipstick wearer and as surprising as it may sound, this lipstick somewhat influenced my makeup routine as I have been wearing lipsticks a lot more in general now. I am so in love with this shade, it is fairly pigmented but I don't usually wear it to its full opacity as it may look very eye-popping for everyday use. So, what I like to do is that I blend it lightly by pursing my lips and with my finger to the point where it looks like 'my lips but better'. You can see me wearing it here.
