Revlon Powder Blushes Pinks & Corals

4 5.5Hey girls! ❤ I wanted to share my new drugstore blush additions, they are the Revlon Powder Blushes in Melon-Drama, Classy Coral, Racey Rose. I was able to find these on sale at the drugstore, and I was a little hesitant to pick these up at full price. The colors looked amazing, and the packaging is nice and sleek which I like. I was happily surprised with these. They apply gorgeously on the skin, very natural looking, and I really love the shade range. I picked up all the pinky-peachy shades, and I’ve been really enjoying them when on the go. They are fairly cheap and come with a brush, which I don’t really use, but overall I’m really liking these little blushes! Totally recommend checking these out from the drugstore!

Everything is Better in 3’s! Sleek Blush by 3 in Pumpkin Review & Swatches

1

Hi everyone! I thought I’d introduce a new staple in my collection, the Sleek Blush by 3 in Pumpkin! Sleek is a UK brand, but OH SO GOOD. Jealous that you can’t get it here in the states! However, you can purchase it from their website, and you just have to pay for international shipping which honestly wasn’t too bad! 🙂 Everything was priced in dollars also which was nice, and all the products were in the range of $3-$15 which is great!

 

2

I super like the packaging, very “sleek” minimal black with their logo, not bulky at all, and pretty sturdy. They are also very well known for their iDivine eyeshadow palettes that you can check out here! Sleek is known for great quality makeup for the price, and I have to say is one of my all time favorite drugstore brands from anywhere!!

3

Here’s the back of the palette, it gives you the 3 shade names, Lantern, Squash, and P Pie, these are DEFINITELY dupes for other higher end blushes, and the pigmentation is amazing. Extremely high pigmentation, and blendability.

Here are the shades!  (L to R: Lantern, Squash, and P Pie) How gorgeous are these! They look a bit scary at first, but I use my Real Techniques Blush Brush and lightly get a bit of product on the edges of my bristles, and buff them into my cheeks. It really gives an amazing look, and can looks very natural when lightly applied. I’ve been LOVING P Pie and Lantern!

Swatches: Lantern, Squash, and P Pie

High End Dupes: (Lantern) Nars – Exhibit A or Taos,  (Squash) Bobbi Brown – Pale Pink, Nars – Desire, and (P Pie) Nars – Taj Mahal

Blended out: Squash, Lantern, and P Pie

High recommend you check out Sleek, what do you guys think! 🙂

Mac Hey Sailor! Collection Fleet Fast Satin Blush Review!

I stopped by Nordstrom after work today because of all the buzz I’ve been hearing about the new Mac Hey Sailor! Collection. After trying out some of the products (most were already sold out) this one was a hit for me! It’s the Mac Hey Sailor! Collection Satin Blush in Fast Fleet. First of all, the packaging is really fun, edgy yet clean nautical stripes, and the same on the actual compact as well!

Here’s the name of the blush on the top of the box, can’t wait to open it and give it a try!! 🙂

The interior of the box is red which is striking and nice, really gives off that nautical feel! I know some people like to keep these boxes and collect them, but I’ve never been one to keep a box like this unless it was something amazing. This doesn’t feel amazing in design, but it is still stunning.

Here’s the compact, it has the nautical stripe pattern on the top and the entire thing is a deep navy blue instead of black. The Mac logo is printed in gold which is a nice touch!!

Here’s the back of the compact, it has the name, and some other information, the label is also a navy color with gold lettering!

And for the finale, the actual blush!! It is such a great color, this picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s a mid tone coraly-pink-red color and is a satin finish. The color looks very rich in the pan, but this can be applied sheerly and built up! I would recommend this for people with light-med skin tones who want that amazing summer glow!

Here’s a close up of the pan, I absolutely LOVE this blush, it also has tiny gold reflects in it to give your cheeks a nice sheen!

(Photo credit to Lips So Facto) I also passed the perfume section as I was walking out and saw the Narciso Rodriguez perfume that I had read about! This was definitely something I wanted to try so I asked the girl who was working the counter for some samples!

The perfume has top notes of pink floral, middle notes of soft amber and base notes of voluptuous woods. SO gorgeous!! Kind of a warm yet unique floral smell. This is going to be my next perfume purchase!

So happy with today’s purchases!!

Mini Summer Drugstore Haul!

Hey everyone!! As you all know, the summer months are finally here!! I’ve been carousing the makeup isles in hopes of inspiration. I was at Walmart last night and stopped in front of these little beauts!  It’s the Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Hula Hula 131, and the Revlon Illuminance Creme Eyeshadow in Skinlights 730. Hard Candy I’ve been a fan of for a while as well as Revlon, but the creme quad was a bit of a surprise for me!

This is the Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Hula Hula, all their bronzers are an enormous size, and of course LOVE the face that they do not test on animals. I was really attracted to this because it is a mid-tone bronze and not too dark!

Here’s the back of the compact, gives a nice little description, the color, and a disclaimer! 🙂

There is A LOT of product in this thing, and I am so glad. I paid around $9 for this and it has .44 oz of product, almost HALF an oz!!! Considering Mac Mineralize Skinfinishes only have about .35oz and are close to $20, this is an amazing deal. The color is an amazing smooth, lightly warm natural bronzy color, with hints of golden swirls. I’d say this is perfect for anyone with light-med skin tones looking for a natural tan look. It also has the slightest amount of illuminating particles to also give a nice glow! Totally recommend!!

Ok, this was the surprise find. I always walked past these little quads because I’ve been so on the fence about creme eyeshadow products. I love how they feel, but the staying power or finish never really sold me on them. These were about $5 each, and I decided to give it a try after seeing these summery neutral shades!

This is the quad in Skinlights, but there were many other shades ranges and colors to choose from!

I really like the packaging on these, very sleek and minimalistic, pretty good for $5! These will easily slip into my makeup bag without taking up too much room! It also has a mirror the entire length of the palette, so that is a great bonus!!

Here is the palette (excuse my reflection!! lol) gorgeous wearable, summery shades!! The texture on these are really great, super light, creamy, and blendable. You can wear them sheer or build up the color. I’ve also discovered that they work INCREDIBLE as a base for power eyeshadows and makes them more vibrant and lasting!! I really like all the colors in this palette, very appropriate for everyday summer looks!!

Here are the left two shades, it is a shimmery brown/bronze color and a shimmery cream color! These are perfect to wear on their own for those lazy summer days by the pool!! No hassle, but gives such an amazing glow on the eyes!! Love the light shades of a quick shimmery all over the lid look!

Here are the other two shades, an AMAZING coral-pink color with gold shimmer, and a more matte peach shade. The coral shade looks amazing on the eyes, as well as on the cheek bones as a highlight! The peach shade is a great neutralizer or blending color and have also tried it under the eyes as a concealer! Really like how cream products have multiple uses, great value for this little jewel!

Swatches: Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Hula Hula 131 and Revlon Illuminance Creme Eyeshadow in Skinlights 730

Here is a little morsel I pulled out of my nail polish drawer this morning, it’s the Essie Nail Polish in Peach Daiquiri. I absolutely LOVE this color and decided to paint my nails for the pool!! Essie polishes are great quality and go on so nicely on the nails, they run for around $7, totally worth it!

Here’s the little label on the top of the bottle! So cute!! 🙂

Here are my finished nails, I’m trying to grow my natural nails out so this is great motivation, fun colors!!

Also, the bronzer and cream products on my cheeks!!

Mother’s Day Sale Mini ELF Haul!

Hello everyone!!!! Just got my ELF Shipment in from my Mother’s Day haul, they were doing a promotion for free shipping with $15 order and decided to take advantage of it! I haven’t ordered anything from ELF in a long time so it was nice to browse some of their new items! Everything came in this bag which they usually do, I guess it keeps all the products together! ELF has never been known for flashy packaging, but for the price they do product some decent products!!

This is a new item, the ELF Beach Party Summer Nail Polish Set, this was $3 and came with 3 mini nail polishes that I LOVE! These would be great on their own, or to create ombre nails! I absolutely love the colors, (Coral Dream, Flirty Fuchsia and Smokin Hot) can’t wait to test them out! 🙂

This is the ELF Conditioning Lip Balm in Romantic Rouge, I’ve been eyeing this for a while and finally decided to order it!! I reeaaallllyyy like these conditioning lip balms, they are very smooth, slightly glossy, highly pigmented and smell like vanilla cake! I was attracted to this color since I thought it would give such a nice bright tint to my lips, or built up if I wanted to! LOVE this color!

I got a back up of the ELF Conditioning Lip Balm in Nice & Natural, a great nude color with the same texture and feel as the other ones. They smell SO good! This gives a nice nude flush on my lips and neutralizes any discoloration. I really like how natural this looks and how nice it makes my lips feel!

I also got a back up of the ELF Eyelid primer, I like this because for $1, it doe the job! I’ve never had that much luck with eyelid primers, but I feel like this is good for what it is, plus it is VERY inexpensive. I would hate to waste money on a eye primer that I didn’t like! Yay for this. 🙂

This is the ELF Mineral Lipstick in Party Pink. These are a little more expensive than some of the other items in their Studio line, but I was really attracted to this color! I have this in Runway Pink and decided that this was it’s more subdued twin.

Here’s a close up of the color Party Pink. It looks like such a great nude, coraly-pink color!

Here’s what the packaging looks like, it’s simple, sleek and discreet. Nothing flashy or special, but this is a great step up from their essential lipstick packaging.

Here’s the color! AMAZING!! This would be such a great alternative nude lip color! Love this already!! Swatches and review coming soon! 🙂

Ulta Lippie Haul! : Essence Lipstick, Lip Gloss and Korres Lip Butter!:)

Quick little haul for you guys today, decided to stop by Ulta to check out what they have since I had a 20% off coupon with me! I need some everyday lippies to take to work with me in my purse, (like I need anymore lol) and found some GEMS!!!! This is the Essence Lipstick in Coralize Me. IT IS AMAZING, I ABSOLUTELY love this thing. First of all, it’s $2.50. Second of all, the color is gorgeous, perfect for me in the summer, and third, it is SO hydrating!!

The packaging is nothing flashy, but for $2.50 I guess you can’t complain. here’s a close up of the bullet so you can see the color. It just looks so delicious!! lol I wanted to get back ups of this right away. The color is a perfect light peachy pink coral color that tints my lips in the perfect way. It does have a little shimmer, but I can hardly notice. The formula again is VERY hydrating and is the perfect work lipstick for me. Can’t say enough about it!!

Here’s the bottom of the lipstick, it has the color, ‘Coralize Me’ and the number 55.

Swatch: Essence Lipstick in Coralize Me

Next thing I got was the Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranite. I used my 20% off coupon on this and got it for $9! I thought it was a good deal. These little lip butters have been raved about, but this is my first one that I own!

The packaging is really nice and modern, and Korres is known for being eco friendly and using natural ingredients. I really like the size of these butters, perfect to throw into my purse!

Here’s what it looks like, I really love the bright color to represent the color of the lip butter and the nice type treatment. (My designer side coming out in me! lol)

Here’s what it looks like!! Such a fab color, the texture is amazing, very buttery! lol I feels very hydrating and it gives a really nice flush of color to the lips. I can’t wait to use this!!

Lastly I got this Essence XXXL Nude Lip Gloss in Nude Kiss. These have been compared to the Too Faced Glamour Glosses! I haven’t tried the Too Faced ones, but these are AMAZING, At $2 each, they are a hit! The color is great, the formula is very nice and not sticky, and the smell is pleasant! This makes my lips looks full and shiny! Can’t ask for much more out of a lip gloss!

Newest Summer Lippie: NYX Watermelon Round Lipstick!!

Hey everyone!! I was passing through my local grocery store, who happen to carry NYX Cosmetics, and saw this amazing color in the corner of my eye!! It’s the NYX Round Lipstick in Watermelon. The name just reminds me of summer! I really like NYX lipsticks because they are amazingly hydrating, nicely pigmented, and pretty affordable. I’ve really been loving my corals this summer and this definitely fits right in! 🙂

The color itself is a coral peachy pink color with gold reflects. I would consider this is a frosty lipstick, so be aware of that if you’re not a fan of frosty lipsticks! I usually prefer creme lipsticks, but this was an exception. If Nars Orgasm were a lipstick, this would be it!!

The packaging is really cute for these, I like the fact that they have the color pretty accurately on the bottom of each lipstick. The formula is super smooth, pigmented, and hydrating on the lips. I love how they feel on!! You don’t even really need to apply a balm before application. This color does get too frosty if you put it on thick, but with a couple swipes it’s a perfect summer shade.

Here’s a close up of the bullet. Gorgeous!! For those of you who are comfortable going out of the box, this looks AMAZING as a creme blush on the cheeks!! It gives an amazing highlight and a subtle peachy coral glow. It also makes my cheeks feel dewy and soft!! Give it a try!! 🙂

Current Favorites and Drugstore Haul!!

Hey everyone!! This are all my current favorites that I use on a daily basis, and also some new items that I got recently that I have been LOVING! As you all know, the summer months are approaching, and as I get more sun, my needs for my skin are changing! Here are all the items that I use to get that perfect natural summer look!

This is the Neutogena Healthy Skin Liquid Foundation in Fresh Beige, I picked this up because I have been curious about this foudnation for a while now, and seemed like a great opportunity to try it since I am getting a little tanner!! All my other foundations are a shade or two lighter than my skin tone in the summer, so this shade seemed perfect for me! Love that it is SPF 20!

Here’s the color Fresh beige on the top of the bottle! 🙂 The packaging a quite sturdy, made of glass and metal. The bottle itself is a bit chunky and heavy so I wouldn’t really recommend carrying it around in a makeup bag. The only downside I would say is that it has no pump!! I have to carefully droop some product onto my hand on directly on my brush.

Here is the color on my skin! Initially it looks quite dark, but blended out it looks amazing and matches perfectly. The texture of this foundation is very light and liquidy, and seemed to have some light skin care properties.

Here’s the product blended out onto my skin a bit, you can really see the color of this foundation and I noticed that it had very faint pleasant fresh cosmetic smell.

Here it is completely blended out, you can hardly notice it!!!! It makes my skin feel very soft and supple, and the coverage is very natural. I really love using this foundation on my face because I don’t feel like it’s caked on and heavy, especially during the summer months. My skin feels fresh and naturally dewy!!

This is a little sample of the Dr. Jart Water Fuse BB Cream I got in my latest Birchbox. It really is a tiny sample, but I am getting a bit of use out of it, just to try. I really like the packaging, very modern and clean, and I’ve heard SO much about Dr. Jart Bb Creams in the past, I was so excited to finally give it a try!

Here is what the color of the BB Cream looks like. As with most BB Creams, it is a bit light. When blended, the BB Cream should dissipate into the skin and match better. There is a strong SPF smell to this BB Cream as it does have SPF 25, so if you are put off by that, I recommend you try a different version!

Here it is blended out a bit, the BB Cream is very light and moisturizing, it almost disappears immediately onto the skin. I really like BB Creams because of all the great functions they have, and the fact that it is makeup and skincare in one!!

Here it is completely blended out. Gone!! I will probably use this sparingly on certain areas where I need a bit more coverage, (under my eyes, forehead chin, freckles, etc.) under my foundation. This would be a great alternative in summer months for a concealer!

This is a product that’s been around my makeup collection for a couple months now, and I’ve really been liking how handy it is. It is the Hard Candy Welcome Mattifying Translucent Power. I really like dusting this over my foundation for a natural yet flawless look. It also keeps my face less oily throughout the day. The powder is very light and absorbs into the skin. I like using a kabuki brush to apply it all over the face!

Here’s a swatch of it. Initially it does look very light, and with a heavy hand, it can give a whitish cast on the fast, but used correctly it does it’s job wonderfully. It has no smell, and feels very smooth and fine.

Here it is blended over the foundation swatch!!

This is the Eco Tools Bronzing Brush, a huge chunky brush that I’ve been loving. It’s incredibly soft and dense it is perfect for powder and bronzer. I’m a big fan of Eco Tools and recommend any of their brushes!! They are a great value, and are quality made. Check them out!!

This is the NYX Stick Blush in Hibiscus, I’ve talked about this before but had to bring it up again since it is SO gorgeous. I REALLY like these stick blushes because of the formula and the pigmentation. They feel incredibly smooth and almost gel-like, without being cakey or sticky, and apply to the skin easily. The stick holds it’s shape very well, and the packaging is pretty good. You only need a couple dabs of this on your cheek for a great natural flush.

Here’s a swatch of the NYX Stick Blush in Hibiscus.

Swatch of the NYX Stick Blush in Hibiscus blended out!!

I’ve been really fortunate to get two of these in my recent makeup swaps, and I’ve been loving using it ever since!!!! It really is an incredible matte bronzer and the perk is that it smells like cocoa. lol I like using this under my cheekbones and the temples of my head for a warm contour. Love using this with my Eco Tools Bronzing Brush! 🙂

This is nothing new if you’ve been following my blog, The Loreal Colour Riche Balm!!!! This is in the shade Caring Coral. It is a perfect lightly tinted lip moisturizer with an SPF of 15. I’ve been attracted to more warm corally shades since summer is right around the corner, and have been topping my lips off with this! Can’t stop saying how much I like them!

This is a recent drugstore purchase, the Wet N’ Wild Mega Shield Lipstick in Within These Adobe Walls. I saw a review on these lipsticks not too long ago and wasn’t too interested in them until I saw this color! It is an amazing warm mid tone pink shade with a hint of neutrals. Great everyday lip color, and the formula is very pigmented and moisturizing! The only downside I would say is the cheap packaging!!

This is also a recent drugstore purchase, and I am SO happy that I got this! It’s the Revlon Colorstay Retractable Eyeliner in Brown. I’ve been wearing a lot of brown eyeliner for work since it looks much more natural, but have been let down by some that don’t have as much staying power. However this one is VERY different!! This has a great pigmented formula that stays on the skin for hours!!! I did a swatch on my hand and it wouldn’t even budge if I rubbed it hard with my fingers! Very impressed with this, worth the $5.

Swatches: Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer, Revlon Colorstay Retractable Eyeliner in Brown, Wet N’ Wild Mega Shield Lipstick in Within These Adobe Walls, and Loreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral

Last but not least, a nail polish!! This is the Sephora Glitter Nail Polish in Sugar Plum Faeries Gone Wild. Such a pretty purple glittery polish!!! I’ve been wearing this on my toes and recently to do my purple ombre glitter nails!!  The glitter has a combination of fine purple reflects and small purple hexagons. Love it!!!!

Here’s a close up!!! Nail tutorial coming soon!! 🙂

Loving my recent drugstore purchases, what do you guys think!?

My Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick Collection!

Oh, my ever growing lipstick drawer. I try to be careful not to over fill it since I can only fit so many!! Sadly, some of them are starting to appear on my bathroom vanity since I’ve been getting some new colors. -_-; I’ve really been impressed by some of the new Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks, and wanted to show you the ones I have and love!

L to R: Peach Me, Pink in the Afternoon, Primrose, Wink for Pink, and Demure

Here are the 5 Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks I have, I really try and choose carefully since I don’t want to buy anything that I know I won’t use! Most of these are in the pink or peach family, but some do go more nude or coraly which I love as well! (I know I’ll be getting some more in the future so stay tuned lol) These are all creme lipsticks, which are my absolute favorite, and they feel very nice, pigmented, and moisturizing.

Here’s the bottom of the lipsticks so you can see the numbers and names! The first one “Peach Me” I think is an older one, but the rest are all available now at any drugstore!

I like the packaging of these lipsticks, it looks classic with the gold and black, and the tops of the lids are clear so you can see into the top of the lipstick to check the color.

Swacthes: Peach Me, Pink in the Afternoon, Primrose, Wink for Pink, and Demure

Aaaalsooo, the newest addition to my Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Collection is this one in Coralberry! It’s another creme, of course, and it is the most amazing vibrant coral-pink color! I had to get this one my way back from my work out, so glad I did!

Here’s a close up of the bullet, it’s definitely much brighter than the other ones I have, and I think it gives my face more life, especially on nice sunny days! I absolutely love this color, have been wearing it all day! 🙂

Swatch: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Coralberry

Another thing I got was this clear glass “cup” to put my extra lipsticks in to better organize by bathroom vanity a bit since my regular makeup storage is over flowing a bit!! It’s a nice small size and will do in terms of holding my extra lipsticks! 🙂

P.S. Anyone who is interested in makeup storage, I have six of these 3 drawer clear cube drawers from the Container Store! : http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10019532&N=&Ntt=3+drawer+clear

Another Drugstore Haul! Frederic Fekkai, Loreal, Maybelline, Wet N’ Wild

Yet another drugstore haul, I was really inspired by today’s nice weather, and I’m ever more excited for the summer months! Every girl needs her summer arsenal of beauty products, as they drastically differ from the products I use in the fall/winter. I was really drawn to corals, blues, and golds, here are the goodies I picked up today!

This is the Frederic Fekkai Full Volume Mousse. I haven’t tried that many of his products besides at a salon, but I always am curious when I pass it in the beauty isles. Frederic Fekkai hair products are known to have great effects on the hair.  I picked this up because warm weather is coming and I want that full bodied, effortless, wavy hair. It says it’s a lightweight styling mousse with body building molecules and rich botanicals to plump and thicken hair for volume and lift. Use 2-3 pumps after your shower to towel dried hair, focusing at the roots of the hair.

The pump is great, and easy to use, and I really only need about 1-2 pumps for my med/long hair! If I use any more, my hair starts to feel dry and “crunchy” at parts, but loosely tousled into the roots, my hair looks, volumized, fresh, and sexy! The smell is light and fresh, and the texture doesn’t weigh my hair down. I used this directly on dry hair, and I feel like this has the same effect. I like this! 🙂

Wee! Another Colour Riche Balm! I LOVE these, can’t get enough! I got it in Caring Coral, since I thought the color would be appropriate for sping/summer. The packaging is sleek and nice, and represents the color of the balm inside. I love throwing these in my purse for on the go touch ups!

The color is a deep peachy coral color, and it looks fantastic in the tube. These aren’t as pigmented as the Revlon Lip Butters, but for me these have a totally different purpose. I love the fact it as SPF, and gives a nice, lightly moisturizing, natural tint to my lips! My face looks more together and alive! The only things that might deter people from liking this is the light SPF scent/taste. I don’t mind it at all, but some people in the beauty community have commented about it. I think these enhance the natural color of your lips rather than slathering on color. Very pretty!

Swatch: Loreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral

This is the Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Spirited Seas. It’s SUCH a gorgeous palette, and these quads are actually very good quality, especially for Maybelline. (I hate their quints! :p) The formula is soft, shimmery, very pigmented, and smooth. The colors are fresh, vibrant, and reminds me of sun, sand, and water! The lightest shade reminds me a lot of Virgin by Urban Decay, and I’d say the darkest blue shade is the least smooth in texture.  Surprisingly, the applicator that it comes with isn’t that bad either. Anyway, I love the application of these, and highly recommend them!

I got a couple more Wet N’ Wild Spoiled nail polishes because I was pretty impressed with the other ones I got. For $1.99 a pop, can’t go wrong! The left one is “I’m Ba-roque”, and the right is “Shrimp on a Barbie”. I love the shimmery quality of these polishes and the color selection. I’m Ba-roque is a metallic deep gold color, and Shrimp on a Barbie is a shimmery coral-red with gold reflects! So pretty!

Here’s the final look with all the products above, what do you think?! 🙂

Spoiled by Wet N’ Wild Nail Color Polish Haul!

Woo hoo! New nail polish! For some reason, I never get tired of nail polish, I feel like there could be endless combinations of colors, textures, and finishes for them. I was at CVS today, and saw a pretty big rack filled with these Spoiled Nail Polishes, when I looked closer, they were made by Wet N’ Wild! They had so many colors and for only $1.99 each! I had to try them, here are the ones I got! 🙂

This one is called ‘Let’s Get Sushi’, very appropriate for me lol. It’s very pretty bright orangey-coral creme color, it goes on VERY opaque and the formula is pretty great! This is a very typical color that I usually gravitate towards that I never get tired of. So far I’m pretty impressed with these polishes! Amazing for summertime!

This is ‘Paying With Platinum’ and is initially very reminiscent of Chanel Black Pearl or Revlon Black With Envy. It’s a pearly chrome color with greens, blues, purples, and grey. It look very mysterious yet pretty in the bottle! Upon closer inspection, this formula goes on a bit sheerer than expected, you need several coats to get it the deep color you see in the bottle, but still, applied with a couple coats looks unique and gorgeous!

This is ‘Tattle Tale” and is an amazing light baby pink with tiny pearly reflects. This is probably my new favorite baby pink color as it seems to be better in terms of color than any of the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength polishes I’ve gotten! It can be used sheer for a cute sparkly nude nail, or built up for a milky pearly pink. It’s so cute!! Love this one!!

This one is ‘My Silicone Popped’ lol. Not a huge fan of the name, but the color is very nice indeed! Its a medium rosey pink creme color. It looks very flattering on the nails as it looks kind of flesh toned! This would be a great everyday polish and can be versatile for any look that you’re wearing that day.

The applicator is a but different, it pretty wide for a nail polish brush, but makes it easy to apply the polish in one swipe! The bristles are thick and are flattened to give you easy opaque application. You really only need to swipe down your nail once for a good finish! For smaller sized nails like on your pinky, you can turn the brush to it’s side and it’s about the same width as a standard nail polish brush.

Swatches: Let’s Get Sushi, Paying With Platinum, Tattle Tale, and My Silicone Popped Sorry my nails are so short at the moment!! >.<

Just picked up ‘Shrimp On a Barbie” and “I’m Baroque”!! 😀

Have you tried these nail polishes??

Mini Elf Haul!

Yaay Elf! I first got into Elf about a year ago and have been a fan of some of their makeup. You can’t resist the affordable price and fun range of products. I was at my local Target and saw that they had stocked some new items that I wanted to check out!

This is the Elf Matte Lip Color in Coral. I thought it was a flattering shade and kind of matched my natural lip color. It functions as a giant retractable lip pencil, and feels very creamy and pigmented when applied. As with all matte lip products, they aren’t they most hydrating, and can feel a bit drying on the lips. Although, the matte finish is beautiful, it may be more comfortable if worn with a lip balm or conditioner. Lasting power is pretty good! And for $3? who’s complaining!

L to R: Elf Pigment Eyeshadow in Golden Goddess, Elf Cream Eyeshadow in Candlelight, Elf Pigment Eyeshadow in Tropical Teal.

I also picked up these cute little eyeshadows that I hadn’t seen on the shelves before! The pigment eyeshadows are great, I’ve have a couple that I ordered from the website, and they apply smooth, and are very pigmented. The Golden Goddess has a more metallic finish, and the Tropical Teal has a muted shimmer. They both look gorgeous on the lids and are actually very wearable! Both of these probably need something to stick to as they don’t have the best staying power on their own. The cream shadow in Candlelight has a very light/airy texture, dries quickly and is long wearing. I’m planning to use this as a base of some sort, but actually looks very nice on it’s own. I had ordered some other cream shadows last year and remember them being ALOT larger!! lol Maybe they decided to shrink the packaging?? O.o

Swatches L to R: Elf Matte Lip Color in Coral, Elf Pigment Eyeshadow in Golden Goddess, Elf Pigment Eyeshadow in Tropical Teal, and Elf Cream Eyeshadow in Candlelight.

Here’s the Elf Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets, I was actually surprised when I opened the package, I thought they were going to be a lot more boring! lol Each pack comes with 50 sheets for $1. Incredible deal. The sheets are supposed to absorb oil, control shine, minimize pores, and includes green tea extract. These do work, and for the price, I think they do a pretty good job. I do see where the oil has been absorbed off my face. As for smaller pores, I’ll have to use them a bit more to see! Will repurchase! 🙂
