Rimmel Red Steady Go

red steady go

I have reviewed 3 shades of Rimmel 60 Second nail polish in the past, and loved all of my previous shades. I love how this nail polish really does dry fast, and doesn’t need 20 coats to be opaque. The color I decided to grab is called Red Steady Go. It’s a fun, classic red shade of nail polish. I just love it! In this picture, I’m only wearing one coat, with no base or top coat. I like that I can paint my nails under 5 minutes, and have my nails come out actually looking nice! It costs $1.50 at Walmart, although I got it for $.50 with a coupon.  It’s a mini nail polish bottle, and only is only .27 ounces instead of the typical size .4 ounces. I actually like that aspect of this nail polish though –I really struggle to get through a whole bottle without it drying up and clumping on me.  All in all, I think this was a really good purchase, and I won’t be surprised if I ended up reaching for another bottle of Red Steady Go once it runs out! 🙂

Rimmel Blue My Mind Nail Polish

So, here is the review of my favorite Rimmel Nail Polish… finally. It’s called Blue My Mind, and it is part of the 60 Second Collection by Rimmel. It’s a beautiful mid-tone blue, and I think it’s perfect for summer. It is slightly glossy, and I love the color. It applies the most evenly of the 3 Rimmel nail polishes that I’ve tried (You can also see my beauty reviews on Mintilicious and Purple Reign!).

That being said, I’ve had it for a year, and it has started to clump. So, keep in mind that with the Rimmel 60 Second Nail Polishes, that they last a year. Thankfully, the bottle is small, and is super cheap –only $1.50, compared to the typical $4-9 bottles of polish you can buy at Wal-Mart.

What do you think? Does Blue My Mind look like a color you’d like in your nail polish collection?

Rimmel Purple Reign Nail Polish

So, I have another Rimmel 60 Seconds Mini Nail Polish to review. This shade is called Purple Reign, and I love it! It’s a beautiful, cool-toned shade of purple, and I love to wear it. The one thing I will say about it, is that it is a bit streaky, and does not meet its “one coat” guarantee. That said, two coats, or even three, leaves you with a gorgeous manicure or pedicure. It’s pretty easy to take off, and I love the fact that this nail polish comes in such a small bottle. As it is with me, so many bottles of nail polish, so little time… 🙂

Though it is streaky, I like Purple Reign a little more than the Mintilicious shade that I reviewed previously -I think the color is more flattering on my skin. If you’re looking for a fun, medium-toned blue-purple, this is a great option. And for $1.49, it’s a good deal!

Rimmel Mintilicious Nail Polish

I’ve decided to take up a challenge – Project Trash Ten -I found this awesome idea on the blog Lip Gloss And A Backpack, and am using it with the blogger’s permission. Basically, it’s a challenge to use up 10 full-size products (and/or 20 sample size products) before buying any new beauty products. And while I’m at it, I figure I’ll work on reviewing products that I have about my bathroom. Hence this review.

If you haven’t heard of the Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish, it’s a fast-drying lacquer that comes in smaller bottles. Instead of the typical .5 fl oz, it’s .27 fl oz. I have yet to finish an entire bottle of nail polish, so the smaller size is preferable to me.

This color, number 210, and called Mintilicious, is a pastel mint. The first coat goes on a little streaky, but the second coat looks good. It’s a nice even, opague mint with two coats, and I like that. It’s not my favorite of the four shades of Rimmel 60 seconds that I own, but it’s still pretty.

As you can see, it isn’t the right undertone for my skin. Anything warm toned makes my skin look red, which is a bit annoying. But, it’s not too bad. And if you’re looking for a warm-toned mint, this is the color for you

Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation

So, I read a review on Naked Beauty Blog about the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation. I looked high and low but could not find that specific product. I did, however, find another matte foundation -Clean Finish Matte Foundation- by Rimmel, and the Stay Matte pressed powder.

Here are my thoughts on it:

  • I did -finally! -manage to find a color that looks good on me. Yay! And let me tell you -this has been quite the struggle. Just the fact that it matches my skin tone is a *huge* plus.
  • The Clean Finish foundation looks super thick when you open it up, but it goes on a lot more sheer.
  • The foundation did go on a little streaky at first, so I had to work with it a bit to even it out. I think part of this might be because I didn’t put facial moisturizer or primer under neath it. But, once I smoothed it out, it looked good.
  • Definitely don’t try and use this foundation to cover up blemishes -it highlights them. Apply it lightly and use a concealer instead (which, really, you should be using a concealer anyways for this sort of thing).
  • The Stay Matte pressed powder applied well -better than the foundation.
  • The pressed powder does tend to highlight any minute facial hair, so, you’ll need to be extra cautious when using it.
  • Wearing the two together seems like it might be too heavy for day -I’d suggest the combination for night time, big events, and any time you’ll be photographed.
  • The combination definitely photographs well, which is a big plus.
  • I didn’t try the pressed powder alone, as I don’t usually wear my makeup that way, so I can’t give my thoughts on just the powder.
