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!

Shop Makeup, Cosmetics, Skincare, and Beauty at Bed, Bath, and Beyond!

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!

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Tinted Taupe Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Tinted Taupe 5

Yeah, yeah I’m still busy punishing myself with the evil, dry formula of Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick. I can’t help myself. They keep putting out these killer shades that I have a hard time saying no to, cut a beauty junkie a break, it’s a jungle out there.

I recently reviewed my kinda sorta HG (holy grail) color of choice at the moment from the Maybelline Color Sensational Nude and Natural Collection, Cinnamon Stick.

At the time that I purchase Cinnamon Stick I also snatched up Tinted Taupe which I’m loving it as well….

But Y U have such a rubbish formula Color Sensational?

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Milk Review & Swatches

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Milk 1

Would you like a little NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk with your eyeshadows and cookies?

This little gem has been raved the makeup blog over but I’ve never indulged personally until recently. Makeup junkies rave it for its ability to enhance the shade of shadows, lock shadows in place while acting as a primer, and just generally act as a perfect base for loose pigments and minerals.

All true…all true!

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick Review & Swatches

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick 2

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks have finally arrived in the US but there is a little confusion with the display. If you head on into Target (which seems to be the only place in the US at the moment that actually has these in stock) for a purchase you’ll find a display that simply reads “Luminous Lips” but indeed these are Caresse Sticks.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick 11

Those who tried the Caresse Sticks from the UK will indeed by surprised that the formula and packaging of the US version is quite different but not in a bad way.

Here’s my thoughts and review on the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks.
