Rimmel & NYX haul

Long's had a sale on NYX and Rimmel products :D So I decided to pick up some stuff. Our Long's has been bought by CVS but they're not changing the name. They didn't have the rimmel liner I normally use, so I decided to try NYX's one. I got all the Rimmel stuff for 99 cents! Here's what I got:

  • Rimmel Light Beam After Dark lipgloss in "In the Limelight"
    Product overview: I thought this color would be too coral-y for me, but it was cute packaging :P Turns out, it's super sheer and shiny! I like it! The only thing is that it has this sickeningly sweet smell X_x Goes on smooth and isn't sticky. It has this little built-in light & mirror so you can put it on in the dark xD

  • Rimmel Play Fast quick dry nail polish in "Out There"
    Product overview: semi-opaque shimmery pearl white color. Pretty!

  • Rimmel Loud Mouth lipgloss in "Pout"
    Product overview: I really like this stuff! It goes on smooth, gives a hint of color, and isn't drying although not too moisturizing. It's a sheer, pale pearl pink color that can be used over/under other lippies. The only downside is that it also has this perfumey smell I don't like too much.

  • NYX Auto eye pencil (black)
    Product overview: I haven't tried this out too much but I like it so far. It goes on smoothly and the color is deep and dark. It lasts relatively long with minimal smudging. I still prefer my Rimmel Exaggerate liner tho, just cus I've been using that forevers :P

  • NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in "Pink Nude"
    Product overview: I wanted to love this, I really did :( It's creamy and blendable and goes on smooth with rich color, but it has this weird taste/smell that I don't like. The color is also really pearl/shimmer and not really what I think of as "Nude" + "Pink." It is pretty though, I just haven't found a good use for it yet :(

  • NYX Nail polish in "South Sea"
    Product overview: Absolutely GORGEOUS pearlescent blue with hints of purple.


  1. Very nice haul! My sucky Long's Drugs (now CVS) does not carry NYX stuff, which I really want to try.

  2. My Longs didnt have any sales! =( And the other Longs I went to that turned CVS got rid of their NYX stand!

    I really wanted to like the NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils too but I agree they kinda smell/taste funny...

  3. nice haul!! i really want to try the rimmel lip gloss now looks good :)

  4. I've yet to even try any Rimmel or NYX products. I heard great stuff from them - but i think i'll stay away from the lip pencil. Great haul & reviews!

  5. I am still waiting for the Long's that closed by me to become a CVS. Rimmel for 99 cents? Lucky girl! =)

  6. the NYX nail polish looks great! can't wait to see it on your nails!

  7. i love when drugstore do discounts... everything becomes even cheaper than it already is!
