NYX Eyeshadow Pure Silk Review

I’m kinda on this kick where I’m loving on shades that brighten my eyes up but are barely there. Bobbi Brown Nude Beach and Navajo are two plus I love Laura Mercier Eye Canvas and Trish McEvoy’s Eye Base Essentials.

What are your fav barely there eyeshadow shades?

My newest pick is NYX Eyeshadow in Pure Skin.

Love!

E.L.F. Studio Makeup Remover Pen Review

I dunno about you but I’ve made many a mistake during eyeshadow or liner application in the past. That’s why having cheap as chips E.L.F. Studio Makeup Remover Pen around is highly recommended particularly if you’re as goofy as I am when it comes to liquid liners.

Mistakes happen…!

E.L.F. Studio Cosmetics Lotion Wipes Review

E.L.F. Studio Cosmetics Lotion Wipes Review 1

I gotta say I’m always a little surprised that my sister doesn’t glide across the room when she walks. The girl applies body cream by the gallon everyday. Bless her soul.

I wish I was as diligent and I should be since I have drier skin but I feel so pressed for time in the morning that I sometimes skip out on the body cream and leave it until the evening or dare I say sometimes in the evenings I forget! Needless to say I should be moisturizing my body way more than I do…! If I used as much moisturizer on my body as I do on my face I’d probably glide too.

That’s why I gotta say that E.L.F. Lotion Wipes are kinda rocking my world at the moment. These are so freaking nifty.

Take a look!

E.L.F. Mineral Face Cleanser Review

E.L.F. Mineral Face Cleanser 1

Who knew I’d love E.L.F. washing powder!? E.L.F. Mineral Face Cleanser is a brand new recently released facial washing powder from the brand that costs eight dollars.

Facial Washing Powder is fairly common in Asia however, the US Market fails to embrace the idea so I find it interesting a budget brand like E.L.F. has launched a successful formula in this realm (yeah, that’s me giving it the a ok to buy, it’s quite good mind you!). Those familiar with Japanese and Korea brands have probably used dozens of various washing powders like this, Fancl is a very popular brand that produces one.

Let’s have a look!

Makeup Cosmetics Bed Bath Beyond 9

(Pictured above Bed, Bath, and Beyond the Beauty Mecca of cosmetics and makeup galore!)

You might hear me shout the good word of Harmons far and wide for my drugstore beauty purchases. Harmons is actually an extension of Bed, Bath and Beyond and basically acts as any good Walgreens and CVS carrying all your everyday need products like deo, toothpaste, shampoo, etc…They also have a stupid killer selection of the latest and greatest drugstore beauty brand selections at great prices (like sometimes cheaper than the Evil Empire aka Walmart).

But…

Some folks don’t have Harmons around.

That’s why I highly suggest you check out a Bed, Bath, and Beyond or two. My Bed, Bath and Beyond has a HUGE selection of beauty bits and bobs.

Take a look!
