Fotd: NYC & Rimmel review

12:29 PM


Hello everyone, it's been a long while since I've posted anything beauty. Today I'll be sharing my thoughts on two eye products that I wore over the weekend. I tend to share my fotd pics to Instagram so if you follow me there you knew this post was coming lol!

My fotd easy running out the door make up...
I literally slapped my foundation on, filled in my brows and my eyeshadow took no time because these pencils are so easy to use. 
Here's what the NYC CityProof 24 hour Waterproof eyeshadow pencils look like:

The colors I got to try out: 

Murray Hill Champagne

Wall Street Bronze

Tribeca Taupe

Brooklyn Mocha

I also got to try the Lift Me Up Wonder lash mascara by Rimmel. 
Ok so this mascara claims to "give your eyes a refreshing look with eye awakening volume, lift and length." 
Do I think so, not really. It didn't lift my lashes at all, but it did and length to them and I only used one coat. It also smells like cucumber, and I was worried that it might be irritating to my eyes but it wasn't. 
Here's what the spooly looks like. I found it does a good job getting the mascara on and I didn't have much clumping. I kept it simple with just one coat though. I can see it clumping if you love multiple coats of mascara.
I used the shade Wall Street bronze on my eyes for my fotd. I swiped the pencil all over my eyelid and then I gently used the pencil in a tapping motion above my crease to mimic some blending. You can see the mascara didn't lift my lashes at all... Whomp whomp. Next time I'll curl them before and after lol. I wore this makeup forever because I had a super long night, the shadow definitely isn't 24 hour, it creases horribly after around 8 hours. I did use a primer and I have oily lids, maybe if I didn't it could have lasted longer. The mascara held up, no flakes or eye crusties. I will list the other products I used below if you're interested. And I think i may try these as a shadow base, and see how that goes, stay tuned to my social media for another fotd cause this might just happen. 

NYC CityProof retails $2.99
Rimmel Lift Me Up retails $8.99

Both of these can be found in drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. 

Thanks for hanging out with me today! Do you have a favorite drugstore product? 

Until next time!
