Hope you've been having fun and playing safe in the crazy sun today; the boy and I had an awesome afternoon bumbling around the back lanes of Oxford and eating yummy dumplings at the noodle bar in Gloucester Green.
I'd planned to do a review of the Rimmel 8 Hour Mousse shadows (£4.99 from Boots) I picked up during a 3 for 2 anyway, a heatwave seemed like perfect timing. There are 9 shades available at the mo, which are essentially blue, purple, or neutrals.

It was wayyy too got to be faffing with anything complicated, so I just patted a light layer of 'Glitz' all over the lid and crease, thickened up my lashline with a brown felt tip liner (it's from 17 at Boots, and as you can see has totally disappeared, fail) and finished off with Armani 'Eyes to Kill' mascara.
Now, my application skillz are definitely basic. Not so bad that I scare small children, but not yet suitable for the blogosphere. I can use this. It's easy, works and is quite versatile. I'll be scoping out other shades and wish I'd found this earlier*.
I also busted out one of my many Barry M shades this weekend. The imaginitively named 'Yellow' (134) is rocking my world. It took three coats for full opacity, but applies like a dream. I'm now resisting the urge to buy a Wah nail art pen and draw on smiley faces.
Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend, stay beautiful!
Both bought by me, from Boots.
*Actually, I remember seeing the promo images with Kate Moss sporting Pat-Butcher-blue shadow up to the brow bone and steering well clear of the whole Rimmel Mousse range. Have a look on this random blog...
