Welcome to all the new followers, and sorry to the older ones for not updating often. I really need to re-prioritize how i’m going about doing things. I recently ordered quite a few things from E.L.F website, I do shop for their products in Target—but i don’t pay a lot of attention because of the small selection. Now if you really want a good e.l.f product selection, in terms of kits—you can find them at a number of places, Ross Dress for Less being one, and Target, obviously, being the second one.
7701 Fantasy, 7702 Classy, 7707 Nostalgic ($1)
Let me just say that I was wow’d by these, and I’m the last person who will pick up a lipstick over my favorite cherry chapstick. Now the shades are a tad different and i mean really just slightly. They’re all very creamy, soft, and they don’t dry out or flake. I was shocked because E.L.F has lip glosses that are truly horrible (sticky, and thick…my hair and lips go in a war if it’s windy outside). But, I’m so excited about this find, I truly recommend it/ I’m probably going to order their mineral lipsticks($5.00 each) I’ve read that they’re a lot creamier —so I’m super amped about that . My favorite shades are probably Classy and Nostalgic. Classy is this cute purple pink, and it goes really well with my tan/brown skin (with yellow under tones), I wear it regularly…like a pick me up for college and work. And Nostalgic is a peachy shade, and it is very light so if you tend to shy away from those colors, i suggest you don’t get it. But try new things—new shades, and you might just be swayed to purchase it. Fantasy unfortunately is my least favorite just because of how dark it is— i mean it’s a lovely color, but when I wore it i didn’t feel it, it’s really toned down. But overall I recommend purchasing them—and giving lipsticks in general a try.
Studio Radiance Enhancer (highlighter) ($3)
I’m the first to try different things with make up and the last to actually use them in the correct manner. So buying this highlighter was an interesting…choice. It’s in an automatic dispenser, so i really love that i don’t have to use my fingers, and i can apply it with ease. So far, it hasn’t caused any break outs and my skin is ridiculously sensitive—it doesn’t matter if I spend thousands of dollars or mere pennies over it. What doesn’t suit my skin—won’t. I bought this in “spotlight” , but you can choose “sunrise” if you like. Spotlight is a bit more pearly pink and faint, which is nice for a highlighter. I’m still working out ways to properly use a highlighter accordingly with my blush. If you’re new to the highlighter game, try this one for starters—it’s cheap, skin friendly, a good buy.
Angled Blush Brush ($3)
I’m a brush nut. I always like to try new ones, get sets, see what’s out there. I only picked this up because another blog recommended this brush and i’m so glad. It’s very soft, a wonderful brush, and the angling helps the application. I use it with my bare mineral blush, and it works wonderfully. Again, since my skin is super sensitive, even brushes can cause reactions (which is why i can’t use the bare mineral brushes ,all animal hair). I would invest in other brushes if i didn’t have the synthetic ones from Bare Minerals already.
*Warning: Be careful when you order from the eyelipsface.com website because I’ve ordered items before, and one or two of the items is always missing. I’m not sure if this happened to other people, but on my order list, it’s always circled in pencil, and i still get charged for it. This time I unfortunately didn’t receive my Studio matte lip color.
I definitely love buying from the website, a wide range of products, and it’s good to find out what works, and what doesn’t.
