Pretty Pout

I received three Rimmel products and first on the list is the Moisture Renew lipstick.  I love this brand and this lipstick is no exception.

The hue is full of vitamins to quench and hydrate dry lips so it’s perfect for everyday wear and comes in rainbow of  vibrant shades.

Swiss Miss

Cozy Cocoa!

Hot cocoa keeps me happy and toasty on chilly night! Why not treat yourself to a hot cup of Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa and take a moment to relax and indulge with one of your favorite past-times?!

Jergens

Gorgeous and Glowing

I love the new Jergens ultra heeling lotion with hydralucence. I use it after I get out of the shower to seal in the moisture and it keeps my extra dry skin hydrated all day. After a week of use my skin looks healthier and rejuvenated.

Scandalicious!

I adore the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Rockin Curves Mascara! This product makes my light barely there lashes look ultra long and plump, plus the wand gives my lashes a flirty flip that makes my eyes look bigger and brighter! Thanks to Influenster for gifting me this product to test and review…It is now a mainstay in my beauty routine!

Rimmel’s Rockin It!

As you can see Rimmel is definitely Rockin It! This transparent lip liner works with any shade of lipstick you choose and protects lip color from smudging and bleeding. Rock it with your favorite hue!
