  • elf Essentials Brightening Eyecolor~Butternut, Review & Swatches

    October 1, 2011 Kelly Baum

    elf Essentials Brightening Eyecolor in Butternut Made in China This quad is made up of four colors: a yellow-toned cream, peach, dark plumb taupe, and a dark bronze. All have golden shimmer. The colors are very nice. For being only $1, they are really pigmented. And they transfer onto the lid beautifully. The only color that isn’t on the same level as the rests is the peach. It’s such a skin-toned color that it isn’t on the same level of…

    Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara in shade 100, Blackest Black 0.43 fluid oz.-Made in USA Ah, an oldie, and not so much a goodie. I picked this up because it was only $3.24 at Meijer, and since it was deemed to be such a “classic”, I wanted to give it a shot. What does it claim to do? Condition & thicken lashes Intense black lashes Lash-building brush Washable formula Well first off, the only good thing I could find…

    September 28, 2011 Kelly Baum

    //not sponsored, affiliate links included The Fit Me line from Maybelline caused a lot of hype when it first launched and I was really drawn to their Fit Me Powder. I’ve heard some really great things about this powder, from how light it is to how it sets makeup and thought it would be a perfect first impression of the Fit Me Line. This varies in price depending on where it’s sold, but you can always get a good deal…

  • Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream, Review

    September 26, 2011 Kelly Baum

    Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream 1.7 oz- Made in USA I’m not really a moisturizer person, just because I don’t like gooping thick amounts of smelly white cream on my face. Plus, they can get very expensive. So when I received a sample of this, I pretty much ran out and got it. Although the name says “Gel-Cream” I wouldn’t call this a cream at all. It’s a watery, green gel. Which is nice, because unlike a cream, the…

  • elf Beauty School Blush & Bronzer Palette, Review & Swatches

    September 25, 2011 Kelly Baum

    Grab this before it’s gone! I found this on clearance for $2.55 a few weeks ago at Target, but it’s still available for $3 online at elf.com, but there’s no telling for how long it will be available as I don’t think this is a permanent palette! I have a few of the elf Studio blushes, and I thought that this palette would be a lot like those-sheer in color. But in fact, these 4 colors are the exact opposite!…
