Mini Elf Haul!

11 Apr

ElfOkay, so not so much a haul but more of me just getting a few things from their website. Elf often has 50% off sales online! A lot of people are afraid to try them out because they are SO cheap. Yeah, they have some things I will NEVER repurchase but they also have some great dupes for higher end products! I will apologize in advance for not doing any swatches! My skin still hasn’t fully recovered from winter 😦

 

The first product I picked up is Elf’s High Definition powder ($6.00). It comes in a good sized container and is the PERFECT dupe for the MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microfinish Powder ($19.00-$34.00). For a way cheaper price It looks and feels exactly the same!

Next I picked up Elf’s Eyebrow Treat and Tame in Medium ($3.00). I’m sure there are a ton of expensive versions of this stuff. But this one is slightly different. It has a “treat” clear gel with a brush type applicator and you brush it over your brows to smooth them. Then you use the “tame” half which is your typical colored brow gel on a wand. Really great product if you don’t want something too heavy but you still want your brows looking good!

I have to admit, I was kind of skeptical about their lipsticks! I guess I just didn’t think a $3.00 lipstick was going to do anything. So I decided to try just one to see how it went. I picked up Elf’s Moisturizing Lipstick in Pink Minx. Its a perfect light pink floral color. goes on smooth, moisturizing, and the pigment is nice!

Along with the lipstick I also got their Lip Exfoliator ($3.00) Sure you can make one at home with a little sugar and oil, but I just had to try it because it has vitamin E oil, shea butter. And then it has avocado, grape, and jojoba oil. Not much to say about this! I mean, it works just as well as any other product like it. But it tastes delicious!

Last I picked up two of their Studio Blushes ($3.00 each). I got a nice light pink color in Tickled Pink. Then I got a light, shimmery mauve in Mellow Mauve. Both colors look really great on and the color is gradual.

Smashbox Pop of Pink Review!

5 Aug

So I turned 17 the other day, Yay! And I wanted to review one of the things I got with some birthday money! I haven’t tried much Smashbox other than some lipgloss and mascara, but I saw this little value kit and had to get it! It’s super cute with four pink colored items including a lipstick, lipgloss, mascara, and blush! So here’s what came in it and what I thought.Smashbox1Here’s a picture of the bright pink makeup that came in the box.

Smashbox2On The top is the Reflection High Shine lipgloss in Pop Of Pink and the bottom is their Be Legendary Lipstick in Posy Pink. I love both these products a ton! The lipstick goes on smooth and gives a really nice pigmentation! I just might prefer it over M.A.C.! The lipgloss also has great color, the only problem I have with it is that it may be a little too sticky for me. Other than that it lasts a good while!

Smashbox3This is their blush in Pop Of Pink. I put on a stronger amount on the left to show you how much color it really has! The color on the right is a sheerer coat, something a little more practical for me. It is a VERY pretty blush! It blends well onto the skin, gives a nice glow, and stays put!

Smashbox4This mascara is their Full Exposure Mascara in Jet Black, AKA my new favorite mascara! As you can see in the picture the brush is HUGE and has a good sized bottle too. I always have trouble finding a mascara that will lengthen, de-clump, AND stay all day. I have only worn this mascara today, but it didn’t fail me! If you are thinking about getting a kit by smash box I recommend this! This is their POP Of PINK box, but they also have a bronze one too. At ULTA I got this kit on sale for $29.00 when it was $39.00 and it also says it’s an $87 value! So happy I got it πŸ™‚
