Rimmel London: Scandaleyes Longlasting Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner

Rimmel London has done it again!
I have somewhat of a love/hate relationship with Rimmel. I love them because I have yet to try a product by them that doesnt live up to the hype, and I hate them because I can drop a ton of money on their products and still want more.

This new scandaleyes eyeliner did not disappoint. First off the price is great at just $5.98 at Walmart.

It is very creamy and glides on extremely easy. That may just be its only downfall as well, it was so easy to glide that it wound up going down onto my lower lid which i wasnt trying to do.

It was definitely longlasting. It stayed fresh looking for about 9 hours and then as it looked more worn stayed on for another 5 hours until I washed it off. I sprayed my face with a squirt bottle on mist and it did live up to its waterproof status.

I think what i liked most of about this eyeliner is that it is so much better than the other eyeliners in this budget. Not to say that the others arent great, but this one...its awesome!

All in all Id say this product is a wise investment & Im personally going to stock my supply with it. Ill be adding this review to my makeup board on Pinterest so if you dont follow me already, be sure to do so! Coffee & Kahlua on Pinterest

Angels Yam CakeBake

Happy 7th Birthday to the baby of the bunch! My Angel girl (that's her nick and middle name) turned 7 today and being low on funds and energy I decided to do a cake that was as unique as my youngest child. And man, this is some unique stuff I'm about to share! I can almost guarantee that this probably has never been done before (my twisted little mind is a plethora of unique) and while it may sound as odd as a duck wearing a raincoat, I can assure you it tastes FANTASTIC! 

1 can Princella Yams
1/2 Bag of Angel Food Cake
Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
4 tbs Butter/Margarine
2 tsps Flour or Corn starch
Preheat oven to 350°
In cake pan empty can of yams & distribute evenly across pan (mostly drained)
Drizzle molasses and condensed milk over yams until all of them have a drizzle.
Combine butter, brown sugar, cinnamon , and flour until creamy smooth and then spread over yams.
Place in oven and bake for 10 min. Take pan out and fold angel food cake mix into yams. Place in oven again and bake until mix rises and is golden brown.

Please excuse the angel food white mess around the pan , i am not known for my neatness.
