First Impression:: ELF HD Studio Blush in Encore

Hey Guys!!

Bad, bad blogger, I know. I want to show you a new favorite in my life, now! 

ELF's website description: 

Rich and creamy HD Blush naturally sculpts and highlights the cheekbones for a soft-focus effect that is great for everyday use. The Vitamin E enriched formula conditions and hydrates the skin for a healthy, radiant glow. Velvety soft, lightweight and highly pigmented color creates a long-lasting result for all day wear.

My Thoughts:

This blush is incredible!! It's everything ELF claims it to be: Creamy, check. Pigmented, check. Long-lasting, check! I will say to use a light hand with this because, as you can tell by the swatch, a little bit goes an extremely long way!! I love that it has a pump because it makes it that much easier to use. I suggest applying it with your fingers or a stippling brush to get the blended out effect.

Look at that color payoff!!

I look forward to trying out more of these blushes, there are five in all and retail for $3USD. Have you tried these & what are your thoughts?

Love Bold Lips? Try Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquers!

Hey Guys!

I have been on the hunt for these lip products for a while and luckily they showed up in a Walgreen's I was near! These lip lacquers are everything I anticipated them being: creamy, smooth, pigmented, & moisturizing! I find that they keep that lip gloss consistency while on the lips and, like lip glosses, can come off easily. They're $4.99 and such a great steal. I only have 4 colors, but I plan to go snatch up more.

[T-B] Stellar | Galaxy | Nova | Celestial

[Top Row] Stellar - Galaxy(slight shimmer) ; [Bottom Row] Nova - Celestial

Have you picked up any of these, if so which ones? If you haven't gotten any, do you plan to??

Ioni Cosmetics Lipglosses ::$1 Bargain!

Hey Guys!

If you live near a Fred's Pharmacy, I urge you to RUN [or drive, your choice] and pick up some of the Ioni Cosmetics lip glosses!

These bad boys are only $1 and are smooth, creamy, and pigmented with no offensive smell!

I picked up three:

[T-B] Fanciful | Sassy | Razzle

  • Fanciful [Cream]- Hot pink with more of a reddish undertone. 
  • Sassy [Cream]- Blue based hot pink. My Favorite! 
  • Razzle [Cream with small glitter]- Peach. This is the least pigmented of the 3 I picked up.

I will be stalking my Fred's to scope out more colors! Have you tried these?

FOTD: Purple People Eater

Hey Guys!

Don't ask what made me pick this name, it just seemed to fit! I love wearing purple shadows and since my birthstone is Amethyst, it holds a special place in my heart. :)
