Battle of the Brands: Rimmel vs Neutrogena | Eye Makeup Remover

Battle of the Brands Neutrogena vs Rimmel

So you’re standing there in the aisle at the pharmacy, and you’re wondering which eye makeup remover will actually take off your eyeliner and mascara without having to rub and scrub? Everyone knows that the Neutrogena one is great, but then there are others who swear by L’Oreal. And more still who swear by the Rimmel one.

So, to help you out a bit, I’m starting a new series! I think I’m going to call it Battle of the Brands!

I’m going to be comparing two similar products in each video and letting you see for yourself which one is best! I hope to do this with lots of drugstore items like makeup wipes, lotions, nail polish removers, and even makeup!

We’re starting today with Rimmel Just Let It Go up against the (generic) Neutrogena Oil Free Makeup Remover.

The Neutrogena one costs about $5.50-6.50 depending on where you buy it, and a little less than that if you buy generic. (And way less if you buy generic when it’s buy one get one free!)

The Rimmel one I’ve seen from $4-8. I think they must have just repackaged it, because it used to be a smaller bottle and wasn’t called Just Let It Go.

So what did you think? I think the Neutrogena makeup remover WON!

#RealTalk: Self Love

#RealTalk: Self Love

#RealTalk: Self LoveLet’s get real with each other for a moment today and talk about loving yourself. (And no, I’m not talking about anything dirty.)

I mean really getting to know and falling in love with yourself. When you have a strong foundation of love for yourself, it is so much easier to love other people- and have them love you back.

When treat yourself like someone you love instead of someone you hate, it radiates outwards. People can see it. And people who love you will love you even more for it.

Let’s talk:

OK, so now you know that I mix up my words and lose my train of thought easily- but guess what? I love that about myself! And when people tease me about it, I am okay with it because I love that about me. This applies to so much- when you love yourself, people can’t hurt you easily.

 

So what are my 14 Reasons I Love Myself?

  1. I love my sense of humor
  2. I love my smile.
  3. I love that I can do anything I set my mind on.
  4. I love that I am a fast reader.
  5. I love that I am so curious about the world around me.
  6. I love that I am accepting.
  7. I love that I am very hopeful.
  8. I love my creativity.
  9. I love my will to ‘stick to my guns’.
  10. I love my weirdly long fingers.
  11. I love my curly hair.
  12. I love my boobs.
  13. I love that I can make mistakes, and be okay with them.
  14. I love that I will always forgive myself.

I hope that you take the time to write yourself a list too! Keep it around whenever you’re feeling down on yourself, remind yourself why you’re in love with you!

Lime Crime Cashmere Dupes

Limecrime Cashmere Dupes

For starters, I just want to thank a Facebook follower for asking for this dupe and sending  me down a 6 hour Google search for the perfect dupe for Lime Crime Cashmere.

Also, none of these are my swatches or photos, so if these are yours and you want me to take them down, please email me at sarah@lipstickdupe.com or comment below.

Also also: None of these are 100% the same as Cashmere- either they are slightly different in color, or different in formula.

Also, also, also: Go follow @dupethat on Instagram if you haven’t already, and JemorJerrica on Youtube!

Ok! Now that those are out of the way, let’s get into the dupes!

Lime Crime Cashmere Dupes

Cashmere is INCREDIBLY hard to dupe, because the formula and the color are SO unique. I spent about 6 hours looking at swatches and watching videos, and wanted to compile the very best ones in one post to save you all the trouble of searching for that long yourself.

The very, very best dupe I’ve seen for both color and finish is L’Oreal Never Ending Nutmeg from their new Infallible line, found by JemorJerrica. At 13:45 she starts talking about L’Oreal Never-Ending Nutmeg, and at about 15:00 she shows Cashmere. I’d say they are pretty darn close!

Please go subscribe to her! She is amazing! JemorJerrica She’s been on YouTube for 3 years and should have way more subs! Her voice is heaven- she sounds like Laura Prepon. I’m in love.

If anyone owns both and wants to swatch them next to each other, I will post that here too (if you want!) Tag me @lipstickdupe on Twitter or @sarahlovescoffee on Instagram.

This photo shows lots of potential dupes, but look at LA Splash Ghoulish (first on the left) compared to Cashmere (second from left)! Pretty darn close in color!

Cheap Acrylic Lipstick Organizer

Cheap Acrylic Lipstick Organizer via Lipstickdupe.com

Today I wanted to show you my new Cheap Acrylic Lipstick Organizer!


Hi loves! I am so in love with my new lipstick holder! I’ve always assumed that these are super expensive, so never looked into buying one until now! I got so sick of having all of my lipstick loose in a drawer, or in little containers scattered around my vanity. Those adorable little metal containers from the Target Dollar Spot are SO cute and I probably have 10 different styles by now… But they aren’t perfect for lipsticks. (I love to use those for my makeup brushes though)

Cheap Acrylic Lipstick Organizer
Cheap Acrylic Lipstick Organizer- SO PERFECT!

I was browsing on Amazon for desk organizers, and this popped up in the little related products thingy. It totally drew me in because it said it was only $3.81! Talk about cheap! I put the Cheap Acrylic Lipstick Organizer in my cart and was checking out- and wouldn’t you know it? It shipped from Hong Kong. I was really disappointed and sure that the one from Amazon Prime was going to be $10+…

But it was only $5.43!

So I ordered it and here it is! I am in love!

Quirky Zen Cosmetics Makeup Organizer

My boyfriend’s sister, Stella, ordered this off Quirky.com for me for Christmas, and I am in love! I want to order another 10.

It’s simple, cute, and functional. I use it to store pens on my desk, or my makeup brushes when I am getting ready to film a video. It makes it really easy to just grab the brush you want.
