Eyes & Lips by Rimmel London








I have slowly but surely been familiarizing myself with Rimmel London and I am falling madly in love. I never knew their products were of such fine quality. My last purchase was one of the Kate Moss Lipsticks (which I am still loving by the way) and I also use their Stay Matte Pressed Powder on a daily basis. This week I received a box full of goodies courtesy of Influenster and inside were three Rimmel London products I have never tried.


The Moisture Renew Lipstick (I am wearing the shade As You Want Victoria) is hands down the smoothest lipstick I have ever owned. When I first started applying it I paused for a second because I was completely shocked at how creamy and moisturizing it was! It's definitely a long wear lipstick and even after several hours it didn't make my lips feel dry. I was thrilled to see that there are 24 other colors available. If you're in need of a new lipstick or feel like updating your selection with a new color, definitely give these a try!




I love mascara but every time I try a new one I am never expecting it to be as good as The Falsies by Maybelline. The Scandeleyes Rockin' Curves Mascara ended up surprising me! Though the shape of the wand could take some getting used to, it gives your lashes just as much volume as The Falsies do and almost as much thickening. I don't know about you, but I think my lashes turned out pretty darn good!


Lip liners aren't a huge part of my beauty routine. I only really use them for when I'm wearing bold colors and I like to use a clear one. The Moisture Renew Transparent Lip Liner is a great option as it is infused with shea butter. Plus, there's no sharpening needed so it's great to carry around with you for touch ups!

All of the Rimmel London products are super affordable. In fact, the ones I reviewed today are all under $6! Do you use an of their products? If not, do you think you might give them a shot?

Disclosure: I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.

Guest Post: Casee Marie Remembers Mr. de la Renta

Hello, fabulous SHE readers. I'm Casee Marie; I write about books at Literary Inklings and occasionally about everything else at The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower. I was deeply grateful when Jenmarie asked me to share a guest post honoring the late Oscar de la Renta. When the two of us were blogging cohorts back in SHE's very early days, we chattered endlessly about Oscar and his magnificent designs. One of my favorite posts that I shared (over three years ago!) was The Elegance of Oscar, which gave me the chance to explore a bit of his career history. I'll always have fond memories of perusing his runway collections with Jenmarie and agreeing that, no matter how crazy Fashion Week got, we could always count on Oscar to share designs that were practical, beautiful, and full of whimsy. We were both heartbroken at the news that he had passed, but he lived a full life and gave us the wonderful gift of his work. It's a pleasure to pay tribute to that today.

How do we begin to chart the trajectory of an icon’s influence? Oscar de la Renta was an extraordinary man, and his passing has left us all recalling the moments when his remarkable work charmed our lives. Whether watching his designs on the runway, emulating the ideals of the Oscar de la Renta world, or learning something new about the life of the man behind the legacy, part of me was always absorbed in one of the many indelible marks Oscar left on the world.

Oscar de la Renta, king of fashion, doyen of elegance, was responsible for some of the most iconic moments in public style history, dressing First Ladies and Hollywood starlets alike. But beyond the flash of cameras there was another allure. Women have always been drawn to certain hallmarks of his work: grace, poise, elegance, and sophistication, to name a few. We’re drawn to this not because Oscar sought to manufacture it for us, but rather because it’s what he celebrated in every woman. He managed to make his work a mirror to reflect those qualities that he so admired in all women; qualities that have always been our birthrights. Grace. Wisdom. Understanding. Confidence. Kindness.

For me, Oscar de la Renta and his work always radiated a certain goodness that wrapped around me like a warm, impossibly chic hug. His work fit into the nooks and crannies of my personality; but his work also resonated with women entirely different from me, which is perhaps what made his designs even more significant. Here was a man who was able to speak on a level of style to a wildly diverse, emotive, and self-expressive gender, and he did so for generations at a time without ever losing relevance. He spoke the language of feminine style, because he understood the limitlessness of the feminine soul. He paid tribute to it with every sketch and every stitch.

As an icon and an individual, Oscar himself was a celebration of the traits he admired in his muse: he was elegant, refined, open, and loving. In many ways, beyond the seams, it was those traits – their timelessness – that cemented his everlasting place as a designer for the ages. He reinvented elegance every season, renewing it in the way he saw it being renewed in every generation, as he watched women continue to grow into their own strengths. With his extraordinary work he reminds us of our own history; and as his timeless legacy endures we’ll always remember what Oscar de la Renta taught us: that grace is power, poise is strength, and kindness is courage.

Thanks so much to Jenmarie for inviting me to share my thoughts and memories on the wonderful Oscar de la Renta here at SHE. For more on Oscar, the New York Times has a superb interactive timeline that lets you travel through the life of this remarkable man.

Thank you, Casee Marie, for this beautiful tribute!

Weekend Delights Vol. 7

Good morning, lovelies! You're going to want to curl up on a chair or lay in bed for these great links (and video) I have for you today. Hope you enjoy!

My friend Nnenna put together her own amazing Fall Capsule Wardrobe. I thought it so inspiring I just had to share! It is very detailed and there are photos of all the pieces (and links) to everything she has purchased. If you're needing some ideas for your own wardrobe, this is definitely the post you want to read!

The passing of Oscar de la Renta truly shocked me and left me terribly sad. I can't imagine the fashion industry without him! Vogue.com posted a wonderful tribute to the king of fashion written by Anna Wintour. You can read it here.


Niomi Smart is fairly new to YouTube though you'd never know it as she already has over 800,000 subscribers! She is such a sweetheart and creates fashion, beauty and other fun videos on her channel. I loved her recent Halloween Cat Makeup Tutorial!

I'll see you all back here on Monday! xoxo

Fall Fashion with ModCloth

1. Cami, 2. Blouse, 3. Cardigan, 4. Jeans, 5. Booties, 6. Day Bag

I was invited by ModCloth to share a layered Fall look using items from their website and I happily accepted the challenge! As you may know, I have a deep love for flowy blouses and though they are quite thin I think with the right layering they transition well into the colder months. I almost always wear a cami or tank underneath my tops. They work great for creating a smoother appearance and they're a wonderful extra layer which is exactly what we need in this case. Of course you also need a heavier layer like one of their sweaters or cardigans. In case you haven't noticed, the floor length cardigans also known as "dusters" have made their way back to one of the top trends this season. I think this striped one is wonderful! Since everything is very neutral on top I thought styling it with colored denim would be refreshing along with a pair of very winter-esque boots and a great burgundy bag. Cozy and chic make the perfect Fall ensemble!

What do you think of this look? What's your favorite piece?

What I Wore

Michael Kors Top: Goodwill Thrift Store
Knit Jeggings: American Eagle
Born Wedges: Nordstrom
Necklace: Cookie Lee

If you read my recent post, Shopping in Anaheim, you'll remember that I mentioned finding some great goodies at the Goodwill off of Beach and Lincoln in Anaheim. One of which is the wonderful Michael Kors top that I scored for only $7.99! It's in perfect condition and I couldn't be happier with it! I love the cinched shoulders and the cut outs on the sleeves. And while the material is very comfortable it's actually on the heavier side which makes it a great piece for the beginning of Fall. Since it's black and white it can obviously be paired with any color pant but I choose to keep the outfit neutral and classy. This is absolutely my best thrift store find yet and I'm excited to go back! If you're wondering, thrift stores can be disorganized and not very clean, but you'll only find real treasures if you let your guard down a little and explore!

What was your latest thrift store find?

Weekend Delights Vol. 6

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a great week! Here are some things to make your weekend a little brighter...


I am a recent and happy follower of Cara Loren. She is a lovely wife and mom of two little boys with exquisite hair and a wonderful taste in fashion. I am always looking forward to her next outfit post!



I saw these Black Magic Gold Foil Pumpkins on the Pier 1 website and I am thinking of stopping in their store to see them in person. I love a modern take on pumpkins and I like how shiny these are. Have you seen any recently that caught your eye? I'd love to see!


Kandee Johnson is one of the most talented makeup artists. In her recent video she does a simple tutorial on how to make yourself look like Lucille Ball. I've never seen anyone do their makeup like hers and thought it'd be fun to share, especially since Halloween is just right around the corner! Be sure to check out her other character videos and makeup tips as well!

Love you all! I will see you back here on Monday.
