Retro Radiant Orchid Makeup Look with RIMMEL!


I don’t know about you, but I am loving the ‘color of the year’ Radiant Orchid. I think it’s really one of the most complimentary colors out there, and I have been dying to create and share a good drugstore makeup look featuring it. So, naturally, I headed to Walmart to pick out my some products to create the look! One of my favorite drugstore beauty brands is RIMMEL, if you follow me on instagram or twitter you probably already know that I am obsessed (and I mean obsessed) with their Scandaleyes eyeliners so RIMMEL’s new Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara has been the top of my must try list for some time.

 #BeautyInspiration, #CollectiveBias, #shop

RIMMEL is obviously a very popular brand at my Walmart, I was just able to get the last True Ivory shade of RIMMEL’s new Stay Matte foundation! I also picked up an eyeshadow quad, two Scandaleyes eyeshadow crayons, RIMMEL Lasting Finish lipstick and their new Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara.

 #BeautyInspiration, #CollectiveBias, #shop

The line up: RIMMEL Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara in 003 Extreme Black, Lasting Finish Lipstick in 002 Candy, Scandaleyes Eyeshadow 24hour Waterproof Crayons in 001 Witness White and 006 Paranoid Purple, Glam’Eyes Eyeshadow Quad in 021 State of Grace, and RIMMEL Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in 103 True Ivory.

 #BeautyInspiration, #CollectiveBias, #shop

For this Retro Radiant Orchid Makeup Look:
Prime your face. For this look I only used the RIMMEL Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation – it has a really silky consistency, not liquidy at all, more like a thick mousse – without aeration (or bubbles). And I found that my oily lids didn’t crease at all! Yay! You can go heavy or medium coverage with this one.

 #BeautyInspiration, #CollectiveBias, #shop
1) Apply a sweep of silvery white eyeshadow over your lid. You want to try to get an as opaque a covering as possible, but not go over your crease. Once that’s done, apply the purple eyeshadow into your crease and blend into your white shadow – continue adding purple and blending until you’ve reached the desired light purple tone.
2) Now’s the time to grab your Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Crayon in Paranoid Purple – this is more of a deep purple on it’s own, but swipe a bit into your lash line and blend out and tah-dah! You’ve got a lovely radiant orchid color!
3) Apply liner – I find it helpful to draw the outline of my cat-eye look beforehand, it makes it easier to fix or alter to your liking before filling in.
4) With your Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Crayon in 001 Witness White, pop some into the corners of your eyes as well as your lower lashline – blend with either a brush or your pinkie. This will open up your eyes and keep your look bright and fresh!
5) Finally, swipe on some RIMMEL Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara! I had high hopes for this drugstore mascara and I was not let down – it’s amazing! I love it because it give your eyes some extra drama – without weighing down (or clumping on) your lashes.

I recommend finishing off this look with a swipe of blush & bronzer (lightly) and a nude lip! This is definitely a fun, trendy, makeup look for Spring & Summer – incorporating Radiant Orchid with the retro glam styling of thick eyeliner and dramatic lashes makes it even more fun. What I love best is that RIMMEL’s new Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation and Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara give you that coverage and those glam lashes without feeling heavy or cakey at all!

Escape to the Tropics with Honey Bunches of Oats! (Sweeps & Giveaway, 3 Winners)

I’m a cereal fanatic, and the funny thing is that I don’t even eat cereal in the morning. Usually I’ll pour myself a bowl of cereal for lunch or dinner or even dessert – yup, that’s me the epitome of health, lol! Recently, I had the chance to try Honey Bunches of Oats new cereal, Tropical Blend!


Tropical Blend has actual crispy mango flakes and coconut shavings inside the cereal – how cool is that?! Each serving has 10g of Whole Grain, 120 Calories, 9 Essential Vitamins and Minerals – including 60% Daily Value of Iron, and 4 Wholesome Grains. Now all that sounds really good for you and all that, but for me the appeal is in the flavor of the cereal – and Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blend is what I call a “dessert cereal”. It has a sweet almost floral flavor that reminds me of a mango smoothie I had years ago, and the crunchiness of the flakes really kicks things up a notch.


Looks good huh? You can actually see the mango bits and coconut shavings so your know this isn’t some artificial flavoring baloney.


So now here’s the super fun part, not only is The NYC Talon giving away THREE coupons for a FREE box of Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blend – but Purex, Honey Bunches of Oats, and Outrigger Hotels and Resorts have teamed up to launch a massive giveaway that you also can enter right now!
