beauty

I decided to try for a soft pastel look here. Purple seemed like the way to go! I think purple is tricky because you don't want to look like you have bruised eyes, haha.  The eye shadow "Flirty" is very glittery, which you can't see here, so it brightened up the look some. I used "Mysterious" to get more depth in the colour.

I had "Almost Nude" lipstick on but here my lips are more pinkish because I bought a new lipstick and had some of that on!  It's NYX lipstick in Strawberry Milk.

What I used:
elf Mist and Set
elf High Definition Powder
Revlon lipstick in Almost Nude
Benefit Stay Don't Stay primer
Covergirl Lash Blash mascara
MAC eyeshadow in Teal
Benefit Erase Paste concealer
Mary Kay Mineral Foundation in Beige 0.5
elf Eyebrow Kit
elf Blush in Pink Passion
elf Mineral Eyeshadow in Flirty  and Mysterious

This shade is probably in my top five favourites right now. It's the perfect red orange shade!  I think this is one of the hottest colors for Spring and at only $1, how can you pass it up? I didn't wrap my tips here but I will say the tips to wear quickly either way.

I came up with this look all on my own! haha It's quite simple, actually, and a good solution to a blah hair day. I can do a video tutorial, if anyone wants me to.




 My ELF order!  Look at all that stuff!  And it cost me under $30 including the almost $7 shipping.  I can honestly say I love everything I got.

 They re-designed their polish bottles! I actually really like the new look. I also found the polish itself to be different. It went on SO NICELY and is great after two coats. I do find I get tip wear rather quickly even with wrapping my tips and it scratches easily but other than that, no complaints. I have only worn two of the five colors so far but I am soo in love with them! Plus I like that the application is so great because it means I have little to no cleanup!

 Here is all the stuff. I will review it all separately soon but you have seen me wear some of it recently.

The special offer was if you spent $25, which I did, you could pick out ten FREE mineral eye shadows. I already owned two and loved them so this is mainly why I placed an order, hehe.  I got a wide variety but when they arrived, I realized I already owned "Golden". For some reason I thought I had "Celebrity". So, now I have two. Oops! I will probably just gift it to someone (or do a giveaway when I reach 100 followers?).

 Here are the polishes I got.  ELF was sold out of most polishes including the ones I wanted so I decided to get the "Brights kit".  They are all creams except the 2nd to last which is a shimmer/duo chrome. From left: Punky Purple (which I am currently wearing and will post tomorrow), Hot Pink, Fire Coral (which I have on in this post and AM OBSESSED WITH. Seriously, buy it! Great shade), Sunset and Fuschia.
sorry, bad quality pic

ps. I saw Hangover Part 2 when I was wearing all this (Sunday night). It's SO FREAKIN' HILARIOUS.

  1. A reverse pony tail! I used to do something similar to that when I was little (yours is light years more involved, though); I love it. :)
