Rimmel Haul! *Swatches! *Picture Heavy*

Howdy!  I've decided to share with you a small haul.  In March at Walgreens a lot of the Rimmel was 50% off.  Not everything (no eyeshadows or eyeliners..) but the lipsticks, bronzers, foundation..etc were.  While I'm not a huge fan of Rimmel eyeshadows, their lipsticks are top notch.  So I hauled..little by little.  I admit it may not look like much, but I'm kind of in love:)  Here's what I picked up:

I ended up with 5 lipsticks, and a bronzer.  Normally I wouldn't go near the bronzer.  However, ever since I picked up WnW's bronzer (the super light, practically a highlighter bronzer) Reserve your Cabana, I've been dipping my toes ever so slightly into the bronzer world.  I've got pics, and a small description of everything below!  I'm going to do a short description of everything, and then swatches and pictures at the end!

The Lipsticks:

202-Crush: Its a beautiful, neutral peach color. I'd been wanting this shade for a while, and I'm so happy to add it to my collection.  Its not opaque, so it shows a bit of your natural lip color when you  wear it.  However its not an "in your face" peach.  Its perfect for spring! The wear was also nice..about 4/5 hrs before it faded and left a nice stain.

14-Kate Moss Collection: Its a brownish sandy nude color.  It'll be a beautiful nude for someone..but not for me (it leans a little too much to the brown for me).  I didn't test out the wear on this since It made me look a bit washed out (and ended up taking it off).  However, these are touted to last 8 hrs, and be long wearing.  For me..they last about 5/6  hours (in the other colors I have). 

036-Kiss: Kiss is a frosty mid toned pink.  I really really wanted to love kiss. However, it was too frosty for me to wear during the day..which is sad since the color really is gorgeous.  

12-Kate Moss Collection:  OH MY GOSH.  I LOVE this color.  I actually wanted the red that Kate was wearing in the advert, but 12 looked so cool.  When I first put it on..i was like.."Eh..".  But I left it on most of the day, and kept checking back , and I realized this color is kind of amazing on me.  Its a cool toned Coral/Pink color.  The pinkish undertones is what makes it look well on me, and I love it.  It lasted 5/6 hours through eating and drinking before it faded to a stain. The lipstick itself is smooth and not too drying. This is a true winner.

006-Baby Pink: This without a doubt is my favorite of the bunch.  After wearing this I'd realized I'd seen it before on a blog I read Makeup and Maccaroons (if you've never read her blog..you really should..its great).  This is a light pink lipstick, but not so light that its unwearable.  Its the most perfect neutral pink, and I'm in love.  If you'd like to see a FOTD ..then check out Makeup and Macaroons (by clicking here).

The Bronzer:

The Bronzer is #21 Sunlight.  Its perfect for us pale peeps, and its not a dirty bronze. It has a nice subtle golden sheen to it that I love.  Its not super pigmented so you need to swipe a few times with a bronzer brush, but its perfect for new bronzer users or those who want a hint of a glow.  I'm once again very happy.
