L'Oreal Lash Boosting Serum- 2 week update

So, it's been two weeks since I started using L'Oreal's Lash Boosting Serum.  Here's what L'Oreal has to say about the product: 

Get the lashes of your dreams, with Concentrated Lash Boosting Serum . This breakthrough formula contains Centella Asiatica Extract and Arginine to reinforce, condition, and protect each lash. Apply daily under your Mascara and at night to bare lashes. The result: visibly fuller, thicker natural lashes with less lash fall-out when removing makeup. You won't believe your eyes!

Basically, its a lash conditioner that promotes lash health and strength, it's not a miracle lash growth serum.   Unlike products like LiLash or RevitaLash, it doesn't state that Lashes will grow longer. Instead, it's supposed to help make your lashes stronger and prevent lash loss and in doing so, possibly let them grow longer and fuller.

I decided to use the serum on only one set of eyelashes.  I won't tell you which eye I have been using it on until the end of the 4 weeks.  Look at the pictures and let me know which eye you think I've been using it on! Can you see a difference?

Its actually really hard to get a decent picture of my lashes, keep in mind that the lighting isn't quite balanced (esp. in the first picture).  Also, please ignore my freckles =)

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks Review and Swatches

So i picked up two of the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks
because they were on sale for 50% off at Walgreens this week and I had
a couple $2 off coupons (i love coupons!)
These are the two I decided to get:
Rose Blush (300) and Pink Chic (220)
Both are really pretty Pink shades.
When  I swatched these I was so surprised at how "wet" they were
Applying them to my lips I found them to be really smooth and moisturizing, almost as if I applied a lipbalm.
I just bought these so Im not sure how long lasting they are, but so far I'm pretty impressed.
I did notice a light floral scent to these, nothing overpowering.

Have you tried any of the Rimmel Moisture Renew lipsticks?
What do you think? Any favorite shades?

Solar Power Nails

What do you guys think?
I bought this polish over a year ago, its Solar Power by China Glaze
I love the idea of yellow nails, especially for the summer!
But Im not too sure this color is flattering on my skin tone.  This is the only yellow nail polish I own, I haven't found one that really suits me.  

This is my second time applying it (over a year later LOL).
I find this color difficult to work with because it can look quite streaky, I had to apply 2 thick coats (3 probably would have been better).
Also, I find that this color can look "messy" for a lack of a better word.  
If this edges aren't perfectly neat it looks very obvious.
But I am enjoying it more the second time around...
Thoughts? Do you have any yellow nail polish suggestions?
