Rimmel London Glam Eyes HD 5 Colour Eye Shadow

I’ve been really into neutral eye shadow lately and recently found a great eye shadow palette that has a beautiful range of beige, bronze, and brown shades that work for everyday. The Rimmel London Glam Eyes HD 5 Colour Eye Shadow palette in 027 Brick Lane is the perfect combination of shimmer neutral shadows.

There are 5 eye shadows in this palette and they are all great basics. The bottom right shade is perfect for highlighting under the brow, and the darkest one in the upper left is great to smudge in the crease or along the lash line. I’ve been having fun experimenting with these shadows for some simple every day looks.

Each of the 5 shades has a lot of shimmer and medium opacity. They can be built up for more pigment or applied lightly for a more sheer look. With these 5 shadows there are a lot of pretty possibilities, so check it out if you haven’t yet.

Nude Lips: Check Out These Classic Nude Lipsticks You’ll Love

Nude lips are a staple beauty look since they pair well with a lot of other looks. You can go for an all-over light look with a neutral eye and nude lip, or you can draw the attention to a bold smoky eye and leave the lips nude as contrast. Whichever way you rock it, a nude lipstick is a classic choice.

I recently rounded up my favourite berry lipsticks for Fall, which you can check out here, and it was such a hit that I decided to pull out my best nude lipsticks too. I personally like to pair a nude lipstick with a super dramatic and dark eye look, so I have quite a few favourites that you might like to check out. See my perfect nude lipstick picks (and pics) below!

Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in Exposed: This is a lovely lip crayon from Tarte that is a gorgeous nude in a matte formula. Nude lips look great in matte finishes, and this one is definitely a high-quality choice. It applies fairly smoothly and lasts for a while, and even though it’s matte it doesn’t feel dry or heavy.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick in 03: If you’ve been reading The Beauty Badger for longer than a week you’ve probably seen me raving about this lipstick line. I’m so obsessed with these Kate Moss lippies and have them in all kinds of shades, both matte and cream finish. This one is a great nude shade that isn’t too dark or too light. It’s pretty close to my natural lip colour and it goes well with my skin tone, so this is the one I use most frequently. Check out my post on the rest of these lipsticks here.

L’Oreal Paris Nude Couture Collection in 610 Eva’s Nude: Eva’s Nude is inspired by the beautiful L’Oreal Paris spokeswoman Eva Longoria (shout-out to all the Desperate Housewives fans reading this!) and is part of the L’Oreal Paris Nude Couture Collection. This collection featured matching nude lipsticks and nail polishes each of the spokeswomen, including Eva, Doutzen Kroes, and Jennifer Lopez. Eva’s Nude is my personal favourite of the lipsticks but there are a variety of shades to match different skin tones. You can even check out the matching nail polishes in my review here.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 025 Sky Line Pink: Although this says pink in the name I would consider it a very light nude. It’s a pearl finish so there’s some shimmer to it, and it’s the lightest of my picks, but I like ti because it’s different. Instead of the normal nude lip this one offers a bit of a twist with a lighter look and some added sparkle to it.

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in 700 Nude Delight: This moisturizing lipstick is soft, shiny, and smells great. It has a fresh scent that i quite enjoy, and feels super light and creamy to apply. This lipstick really does feel hydrating and it’s a great choice for an affordable product that looks and feels like it should be much more expensive. Check out all the Moisture Renew shades here.

Nude lipsticks come in a wide variety of shades because everyone has a different ‘nude’ colour. You can find one to match yours perfectly or go for something a little lighter or darker, depending on your preferences. Or you can try them all like I do and have endless options for a classic nude lip!

Pro Tip: A perfect partner for a nude lip is a serious smokey eye, so grab your best black eyeliner and smudge away for a sexy, smoldering stare to compliment your classic lipstick!

Berry Lips: Beautiful Lip Products That Are Perfect For Fall

The weather is getting crisp and cool, and that means it’s time for sweater weather and dark lipstick! It’s sad to say summer is officially over but I’m pretty excited about cozy clothes and boots so it’s not that bad. Aside from Fall fashions I also am excited about the other things Fall brings – lots of tea, movie nights with my man, and of course Fall beauty trends!

One of the biggest changes for Fall beauty is the darker lipsticks that come out. Beautiful berry shades start popping up when the weather gets cold, and to get you ready for this pretty Fall trend I have rounded up a bunch of beautiful berry shades you should check out!

Keep in mind that berry shades can range in tone from being more purple-based or red, so check out which ones you like best for your skin tone. Both are equally as pretty but some berry hues can end up looking more like grape juice instead of wine.

Sephora Collection Nano Lip Pencil in 09 Pleasant Plum: This nano lip liner is perfect to outline one of the pretty berry lipsticks below, or to use as a full coverage product. Using a lip liner all over your lips will make it last longer than regular lipstick. Check out this super-pigmented lip liner here.

L’Oreal Paris Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in 186 Berry Persistent: This lipstick stain is glossy and wet looking, but lasts for hours. It’s hydrating and packed with pigment so you get the best of both worlds – a lasting stain and a lightweight gloss. Check it out here to learn more.

Maybelline New York ColorSensational Lip Color in 410 Blissful Berry: This is a traditional lipstick that is super opaque and smooth. It applies like a dream and delivers a bold punch of colour in one simple swipe. Check out this creamy lipstick here.

CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in 255 Jam Twist: This gloss and balm hybrid is moisturizing. light, and extremely smooth. It’s more sheer than a lipstick but still offers the right shade of berry in a less opaque product. Check out my review of these balms here.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss in 107: This matte lipstick lasts for hours and looks amazing. It has a smooth formula and intense colour that looks great with the matte finish. The Kate Moss lipsticks are my go-to lip products and this one is no exception. Check out my full post on these lipsticks here.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in 09: This is like the non-matte twin sister of the Kate Moss Matte lipstick. This is another beautiful berry shade that has the same smooth formula and long-lasting pigment. Another perfect lip product from the Rimmel London lineup. Check it out here.

Pro Tip: If you’re worried about looking too much like Lorde you can lighten up any lipstick by dabbing it on with your fingers instead of applying it directly.

Get the Look: Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale stars as the edgy Aria on Pretty Little Liars, has a growing country music career, and has phenomenal style that I totally want to steal. As a pint-sized beauty Lucy rocks some seriously cute outfits, on screen and off, but it’s her beauty looks that really blow me away. She always seems to have the hottest lipstick shade and her brows are so bold.

Whether it’s the hot pink blush and lips she rocked at the 2014 Billboard Music awards, shown above, or her signature lucious lashes, Lucy Hale always looks great. She plays up some pretty bold features like her brows, lips, or lashes, but she never seems overdone. Instead of the usual advice to focus on one feature at a time, Lucy shows us how to create a total bombshell look.

My One True Lipstick Love: The Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipsticks

When you find a good lipstick you’ve gotta stick with it, right? I found my one true lipstick love a few years ago and have been using it multiple times a week ever since. It started with one perfect bright red, and my collection has now grown to include purple, fuchsia, and even a nude shade in the same formula. The Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss lipsticks are my all-time favourite lipstick line and I am one hundred percent obsessed with them.

Currently I have 8 of the regular shades and 3 matte ones in my collection, however I’m sure I’ll add to those soon enough. These lipsticks have an incredible formula, an amazing colour range, and a fresh sweet scent too! They also last for hours and feel great on my lips. They aren’t drying and they apply super smoothly, what more could you want from a lipstick? Oh, and did you notice the chic black tube with the red Kate Moss signature on the cap! I can’t help but feel just a little fancier whenever I pull one of these out of my purse.

If I could only have one lipstick brand for the rest of my life, this would be it. That’s a heavy statement but it’s totally true.

From left to right the shades shown swatched on my arm as as follows: 10, 01, 04, 06, 03, 09, 11, and 12. Don’t ask about the strange order… my arm is a lot shorter than I thought it was.

All of these shades are phenomenal and I wear them often, but a few stand out as my go-to shades for a Friday night downtown, a date with my boyfriend, or an important event like an interview.

Shade 01 is the ultimate red lipstick and I know I can quickly swipe that on for any evening out. This one is a staple in my purse and pretty much my most-used lipstick of all time.

Shade 04 is the incredible purple that can turn amp up any outfit and add some seriously chic edge in an instant. This one is less frequently used, but when it is it’s a show-stopper for sure.

Shade 12 is a fresh orange/coral colour that is great for Spring and Summer. It’s bright and pretty but not too crazy or demanding like the red or purple.

With their incredible formula and great range of shades these Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss lipsticks are seriously something to check out. If you don’t already have one (or 8) then you need to get out there right now and pick one up.

See My Two New Favourite Eye Liners For Spring!

The first day of Spring was a few days ago so in honour of the new season I have some new eyeliners to show you! I have one pencil one and one liquid one to show you, and both are absolutely amazing. I’ve been reaching for the for the past few weeks and have gotten a ton of compliments when I wear them.
CoverGirl Ink It! by Perfect Point Plus

CoverGirl Ink It! by Perfect Point Plus

First up is the CoverGirl Ink It! by Perfect Point Plus, $9.99. These liners come in 6 shades that can create a variety of looks. I love the Aquamarine Ink and Golden Ink shades for a bright pop of colour with my brown eyes. You don’t need to sharpen these liners and they glide on in a smooth motion. They also last for hours and are waterproof so you don’t need to worry about them once you apply!
The second one is the new Rimmel London ScandalEyes Thick & Thin Liner, $7.99. This liner is bold and dramatic, with a slanted tip that allows you to draw thick or thin lines. The precision, control, and smooth formula make this liner a winner all around, but the real sellign factor for me is the dual-sized tip. Having the choice of a thick line or thin one in a signle product makes packing my makeup bag super easy!
