New Favorite E.L.F. Products!

With my most recent E.L.F. order I purchased some items I have been really wanting to try. Out of them there were two clearly amazing products that I now use...sometimes daily!

E.L.F. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Cream in St. Lucia:




I absolutely love this product! I use it daily (contouring side) since it arrived. I have not touched my regular powder bronzers since I started using this.

PROS:

  • Glides on beautifully, even on my dry skin
  • Texture is smooth
  • Can contour any part of the face with it
  • Does not look muddy on my pale skin
  • The blush is a great day time shade

CONS:
  • Currently can only be purchased from E.L.F. Website
  • I don't know how well anyone with oily skin would like this since it is so smooth and a cream product.
                                                                 SWATCHES St. Lucia






E.L.F. HD Blushes in Headliner & SuperStar:



Headliner is a must have shade for me. I have been reaching for it multiple times during the week since it arrived.


PROS:
  • VERY Pigmented 
  • Great Packaging
  • A little goes a long way
  • Price
CONS:
                                                         Swatches: SuperStar & Headliner

These products are both amazing & I highly recommend them! Hopefully they will soon be carried in Target stores soon!

BzzAgent Covergirl Blast FlipSticks Campaign!

A few short weeks ago I was notified via BzzAgent that I was invited to take part in the CoverGirl Blast FlipSticks Campaign. Now as you guys know I love cosmetics. In my whole collection I have my most purchased items would be Blushes, Lipsticks, & Eye Shadows in that order.



CoverGirl Blast FlipSticks Campaign Contents:

Everything came beautiful packaged which I always appreciate because attention to details like that make it more appealing to me.




  • 21 $2.00 off Coupon (on one) CoverGirl Blast Faststick Lipcolors.
  • Official Bzzguide- with everything about the product including; Created by Pat McGrath, There are 13 shades, Moisturizing Formula, Availability, Suggested Retail Price ($8.49), You can check out the shades on CoverGirls website or Facebook. 
  • 3 Full Size CoverGirl Blast FlipStick Lipsticks in the shades: Vixen, Minx, Stunner. 


Two of the shades sent to me are simply to dark for my skin tone. But I will be able to give them to friends and family that have a darker skin tone then me, which is nice. 

I currently am wearing Vixen and really like either shade alone or for an Ombre lip. I completely agree with the claims that they are moisturizing without feeling heavy. I also love that the coupons show the colors swatched on the models lips. Because of that alone I want to check out Pucker, Flashy, & Snap. Great marketing touch in my opinion. These are a nice product from CoverGirl Cosmetics and can not wait to pick up the shades I listed above! 
                                                                  VIXEN SWATCHED:


If you guys don't know what BzzAgent is it is a great site where you take surveys (not those pesky surveys) but ones where they fit items to your answers and send them to you to review. It has a great community or bloggers, and also has a very active Facebook site. Check out Bzzagent here  I love that they send me everything from cosmetics, to household cleaning products, to OTC Medication. It is a all around great site.

New Lipstick Loves!

The other day I stopped by Rite Aid to pick up some packing material for my blog sale and I had one shade of lipstick in mind that I was on the hunt for. Now I am very pale skinned so doing the deep berry lip can be tricky. But, I none the less had the ideal shade in my head and I FOUND IT! I also picked up a more wearable deeper pink/mauve shade. Because L'Oreal is BOGO  1/2 off at Rite Aid.



L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipsticks:


  • Mulberry- This is a deep Berry shade. Literally shades deeper then any of the lipsticks I currently have. Yet still so wearable even with my skin tone. Really recommend this shade for us pale skinned beauties! I even got my best friend hooked on it and she has gorgeous olive toned skin. So this shade will look amazing with a wide range of skin tones!


 I love L'Oreal Lipsticks. The Colour Riche Line, Caresse Line, The Balm Line, Project Runway, Infallible  Lip Colour,  they just come out with such beautiful shades.  A list of my current favorites from L'Oreal:  Sultry Ravens Pout, Fairest Nude, Mulberry, Saucy Mauve, Sheer Linen, Rose Taffeta, Nourishing Nude, Tender Mauve, & Geranium.


  • Saucy Mauve- I love this shade because it is a more Fall appropriate shade, I have more PINK toned shades and even when I compared it to some of my deepest shades in my collection, this is a different shade and richer in color. So great addition to my collection. 
Now I Googled these when I got home and found that Mulberry is never mentioned in reviews so I might have stumble upon a gem for Fall. Saucy Mauve has been mentioned but obviously not very much even when searching Google. But, in my opinion it is a must have in any girls collection! 

                                                                    SWATCHES:


Now you can tell I also picked up a NYC limited edition lip gloss in Venomous Berry. It is really nice. It leaves a semi sheer wash of colors to your lips. Great to top over Mulberry or to give your lips a little berry tint. I wish it was a bit more pigmented and a tad less sticky. Since I dislike sticky lip glosses. Like the liquid lip shine line from NYC. That line is not sticky at all. But it is not so sticky that it is annoying so that is tolerable. But the focus of this post is of course the L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipsticks! AMAZING!

BLOG SALE!!

So I decided to get rid of some of my stash after seeing PinksoFoxy on Youtube unjunking her makeup items. Now I have given away TONS of cosmetics to friends and family & I also had a previous blog sale a few months back. I was hanging on to items not because I loved them but simply because I had spent quite a deal of money on them and didn't feel right giving them away or selling them.But, I had to say to myself. I know I will not use these again. Decision made! lol Some items I am selling are full size items I received in my subscription boxes but I don't feel bad for selling those because again I paid for those. I wish they would of worked for me but they just didn't or I wasn't in love with them. I do like knowing that people who really wanted to try an item can do it without spending the amount I did lol. Also I tried to get rid of Limited Edition items that I don't use. So say maybe someone who really wanted it and missed out can have that second chance to check it out. These items are either rarely used, or only swatched items. P.S. I don't get any kind of cold sores or anything of that sort so do not worry about lip products. (I know I think of that "medical mind" when purchasing used product) They have all been cleaned and sanitized as well.
