If you’ve been reading my blog for a little while now, you know I’m a total makeup junkie. It all started when I was preparing for Miss Hawaii USA and had to do my own makeup for appearances, plus my own touchups backstage. Then when I won Miss Hawaii, I had to take it up another notch to be able to do my own makeup at Miss USA since we were there for two and a half weeks and only had pro artists for prelims and finals night. The other days I was flying solo make-up wise and had photoshoots daily. When it comes to makeup, I’ll try anything from a $2 drugstore liner to a $60 luxury foundation and everything in between, but I only keep things that I really love in my regular rotation. And it’s usually pretty clear which I’m loving at the moment since those are the things I pack in my purse daily for on-the-go touchups.
Right now, that’s Rimix Cosmetics. They sent me their Rimix Fixx August Beauty Box (I love subscription boxes because it feels like a surprise gift to yourself every month!) and I immediately fell in love with the products. Here’s why: I have pretty dark brows as it is, but what I need is something to fill in the sparse areas and really tame them to keep their shape. The brow fixx has tiny fibers inside to help build brows and make them appear fuller. The eyeliner is super pigmented, waterproof, and has a smudger on one end which helps to get that smoky look that I always gravitate toward. The lip glaze is the perfect balance of pigment and shine without being sticky (my biggest gloss pet peeve!). They also offer free samples if you want to try out their primer, bb cream and hi-def foundation which is perfect for finding the right shade before you buy. I gravitated toward the bb cream because my skin has been breaking out lately and I wanted something on the lighter side. OK so saving the best for last, the line is made to stand up to heat and sweat which is perfect for this humid Hawaii weather, plus the whole line is paraben-free and non-comedogenic, a must for my sensitive skin. Check out the whole line here.
^^LOVE this lip glaze because it’s has pigment so it’s not overly sheer and best of all not sticky!^^Here’s what comes inside the Rimix Fixx August Beauty Box!
