Hello everyone! I just wanted to tell you about a new make up Gem that I discovered recently. I think that you will benefit from it because you can get it at a really great price and it can be found at your local drug store.
This journey started when I was looking for more affordable make up alternatives. And the number one spot to go for this is , you guessed it.. the drug store. In my previous post I have ranted how I used to always shop at MAC for makeup because you could always find great shades and good quality makeup.
But recently I have noticed more and more that drug store brands such a Revlon, Maybeline and Covergirl have started to create great makeup products which you can find at a great price.
My recent discovery that I wanted to share with you all is by Rimmel . Rimmel is a British make up company that carries innovative make up for women. I’m not sure how popular Rimmel is around the world but it is pretty popular here in Canada and you can find this line at almost any drug store in the country.
My recent discovery from this line is the Wonder Swipe 2 in 1 Liner to shadow. And just like the name it can be used as an eyeliner or as an eyeshadow.
In one of my previous posts I talked about colored eyeliners by Fenty Beauty called Bae Watch liquid eyeliners. The Rimmel Wonder Swipe is comparable to this but I find that it is more sheer than the Bae watch, which can make application harder because it can take more than one swipes to get the desired look.
What I have found is that I mostly like using the Rimmel Wonder Swipe as an eyeshadow. I bought various shades and so far I am really liking the shade “Crave Me” (which I am wearing in the picture feature on this post.) It is a pinkish shade which I also find is quite rare to find an eyeshadow in a pink shade. But this eyeshadow does the trick and has a nice pigment to it.
It also has a nice shimmer to it which I find is also glamorous and girly at the same time.
The most important thing that I like about the Wonder Stripe eyeliners is the great value you can get it at. It is only prices at $8.98 for each eyeliner which I also find is a great steal, where as the Fenty Beauty Bae side eyeliners go for around $38 for three. But if you break it down, each liner works out to be the same as the wonder strip, but I found that I like purchasing each individually because you can pick out the colors you want. And with the Fenty Beauty Bae side you can’t pick out your own shades, which is a bummer because you might be stuck with a color you didn’t like and end up losing money, but then again you are getting a really great quality colored eyeliner.
Overall , I think that you should give the Rimmel Wonder Strip a try, especially now that it is still available on the shelfs at stores near you. The one thing that I don’t like about drug store brand make up is that the make up has a short shelf life and you will find that your favorite products aren’t always available at you own convenience, which is what I am learning and coming to face the fact with. But you can’t always get what you want, and in the end , I am grateful that drug store makeup is stepping there game up and is giving makeup lovers the opportunity to enjoy great make up, at an affordable price.
