Face of the Day: Elf Cosmetics

elf contour palette

Hey beauties,

Today I have another Face of the Day post, but there’s also a video tutorial on it! A little bit ago I posted a video about my top 10 favorite Elf products and I wanted to follow that up with a video using mostly Elf products. I used a few of my old favorites, and a few new favorites.

I even used and talked more about the new Elf contour palette!

Isn’t it lovely? In short, I really like this palette so far and I think Elf did a great job with it!

For this tutorial, I did a very dark brown smokey eye…the kind of smokey eye my mom likes to refer to as “bedroom eyes.” Ha! I liked the way this turned out, and it would make my day if anyone that wants to watch it would and let me know what you think about it!

I know I’ve done a lot of bronzey and neutral looks lately, and I promise I will sit down soon and do something a little more colorful. Also, all of the products and brushes used are listed in the description under the video! If anyone has any questions or wants to know my thoughts on anything in particular, please feel free to ask! I promise that on Mondays I am too tired to bite.

I do hope you all enjoy this very affordable makeup look!

Have a great Monday!

Lip Monthly April 2015

lip monthly

Hey beauties!

Today I’m back with another unbagging and review! Anyone else have a really odd love for beauty subscriptions? Or just monthly subscriptions in general? I really want to add a coffee service and possibly petit vour (they send only cruelty free and vegan beauty products every month) but we shall see. My boyfriend might oppose 😉

Anyway, if you’re new here *waves frantically* Lip Monthly is a beauty subscription that is $10 a month and sends out 4-5 (lately 4) products that are mostly lipsticks or glosses. So, a lipstick addict’s dream! I’ve been subscribed to them for about 5 months now, and for the most part I like it. Some things that I receive don’t exactly make sense or flatter my skin tone at all, and that’s one of my biggest beefs with this subscription. Everyone receives the same bag. Same products and colors…I don’t understand that, but it is what it is I guess.

This month I got 4 full sized products! The bag is valued at $37.99 which is pretty good considering I only paid $10 for it.

1. Cargo Gloss in “Anguilla” $16 This is in a travel sized tube, but it says there’s the same amount of product as a full sized product. This is a really pretty nude-pink gloss for those that like nude pink glosses. They’re not really my style, but I will try it because it may surprise me. I said the same thing about the butter glosses and now I can’t get enough of those…

2. City Colour Be Matte Lipstick “cammi” $4.99 I’ve actually been wanting to try the lipsticks from this line for awhile now! This color is one that I like as well, so win! It’s a very pretty dark purple shade. We all know how much I love my dark vampy colors…all year round.

3. LA Girl Lipstick “Last Night” $4 I own 3 shades from this line already, and I really like the formula! Very pigmented and creamy. With any creamy lipstick, they kinda get on my teeth, but I’m super expressive and I’m aware of it. This color is a bright ass pink, but it’s dark so it’s not as intimidating to me. I may try to pair it with the pink gloss to tone the shade down a bit. Yes, I’m odd, I don’t think twice about wearing green and blue lip colors, but pink scares me.

4. Ofra Eyebrow Pencil “Universal” $13 Okay, so don’t ask me how an eyebrow pencil is supposed to be a universal shade because I actually have no idea, but here we are. I’ve been reaching for this pencil everyday since I got it though! I do have to go over it with a black tinted brow mascara, but my hair is black and I like my brows to be dark as well. I’ve never used brow pencils regularly, so this is new territory. I’m more of a wax/pomade kind of gal. However, this pencil is really creamy and easy to work with. So far, I’m highly impressed with it.

Overall, I’m happy with this month’s bag. I go back and forth with this subscription constantly, I know. I quite possibly have a problem.

If anyone’s interested, I do have a code to get your first bag for $5 + 100 free shop points and it’s 1ST5

Mini Marshalls Haul

So, I follow quite a few beauty related pages on here and on Instagram and I have seen quite a few people posting about finding Kat Von D eyeshadow palettes and lipstick at 50-75% off of normal retail value! Kat Von D does no wrong (makeup wise) in my eyes, so I went on a quest to find these deals…and walked out with more things. That’s how makeup quests typically go, right?
I’ve also had a very tough week. I have money set aside in my Poshmark balance for “emergencies” so I can get out for a bit with the girls (my kids). I let Harmony pick out a Hello Kitty notebook and we made a day out of it. It was much needed for all of us.

So, this haul wasn’t “mini” but I will say that I didn’t spend very much on this haul at all!

I will have swatches of some of the products throughout the post 🙂
Pop Beauty Set I found this adorable set for $8, which is about half of what these retail normally. I have a Pop Beauty eyeshadow trio from an ipsy bag that I like, so I decided to give this one a try. For $8 I got an eyeshadow trio, lip crayon, and blush. It’s a peach themed set, which is perfect for my pale skin!

These are the swatches. The bottom one is the lip crayon in “peach promise,” the next 3 are the eyeshadows from the rich cocoa trio (very smooth and pigmented), and the top one is the blush in “peach sheen.” I have to say that I am head over heels in love with the blush. This entire set is beautiful…but that blush. LOOK.

My next finds were the cute little Ciate nail polishes. One in “ladylike luxe” (very gold) and another called “butterscotch.” These retail on sephora.com for $15 each, but I found these on clearance for $2 each! I almost had to fan myself. The butterscotch one’s packaging was a bit damaged, but to be honest I just love the color. I love the gold one too, but that’s mostly my tacky glittery side talking 😀

Too Faced Gold Glitter Glaze This was one of my favorite finds. These retail for $21 or so and I snagged it for $5! Too Faced is probably my second favorite high end brand, so when I found this I almost squealed. It appealed to me on several levels. It appealed to my love for all things Too Faced, and my tacky glittery side because this stuff is straight up gold.

IMG_3186
It’s so perfect, and I am already trying to come up with a way to incorporate it into a holiday/NYE look.

Kat Von D Roller Ball Perfume in “Sinner” I don’t think I have ever talked about perfume on my blog until now. I’m not very into perfume for several reasons. I have bad allergies and many tend to bother me, and I have kids and I don’t want it to bother them. However, this roller ball seems perfect because I can put it on my wrists and such to give a subtle smell. I actually like this scent. It’s very feminine with a hint of musk. Not flowery or fruity. It’s very…me. I can put it in my purse if I’m going to be out all day, which I also like. I have a 6 month old infant, and sometimes things happen (or literally shit happens) and I end up smelling like a drooly baby. I found this for $5, and I couldn’t find it on Sephora’s site, but I saw it going for $15-30 on ebay and amazon.

Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks and Butter London Gloss These were probably my favorite finds of the day, because 2 of them were what I went out searching for! Alas, I did not find any eyeshadow palettes, but I am happy with everything I did find. Anyway, I found 2 foiled love liquid lipsticks. One in the shade “Adora” (metallic bright red) and “Forever and Never” (coppery nude) I love both of these shades! I also ended up finding a Butter London Gloss for $3. I’ve never tried anything from Butter London. Ever. I will say that this gloss smells like straight up cupcakes, and that’s the biggest reason why I bought it. I’m not very into glosses, but I have been trying to find some that I do like because I do like how they look on others. I did find these on Ulta’s website for $20 at normal price…holy cow.

Swatches from the bottom up: Butter London “Dandy Bubbles”, “Adora,” and ‘Forever and Never.”

I never would have thought to look at Marshalls for such incredible makeup deals. I haven’t been in a Marshalls in a long time because I find it hard to find many things that I like since I’m not a designer clothing/purse fanatic. I will say that if you have a Marshalls close by to go exploring, you may find something awesome! I’m still so happy about these finds. Who doesn’t love a great deal on high end makeup?
