Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Has anyone tried the Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls? I’ve stayed away from them for a while now because I feared they’d apply to frosty. I can’t dig the frost.

Recently, I came across the new Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Blush and was pretty skeptical since they looked pretty frosty too. The original Glow Pearls were a highlighter type of powder where as this version is a blusher. Looking at them I was absolutely gasping for breath because pretty is an understatement. They are really pretty pieces of makeup that can get a beauty junkies panties in a twist. However, my logical side whispered in my ear about how they would probably apply frosty so I sat at the display for a quarter of an hour debating if I needed them or not. After a few more minutes went by I decided I’d just try one color and after ten more minutes went buy I walked out of the store with both colors they had.

Did I like them?

Did they apply frosty?

I’ll tell you next week!

Ha, only kidding!

E.L.F. Studio Conditioning Lip Balm Review, Swatches, Photos

E.L.F. Studio Conditioning Lip Balm 1

The new E.L.F. Conditioning Lip Balm has hit E.L.F.’s website. Seems like we were awaiting its arrival for far too long eh? Anyone order it? Some of the shades sold out way fast so I’m guessing its quite the popular little item.

I ordered two shades which arrived late last week. I’ve been mucking around with them for a few days so I thought it was about time to tell you my thoughts.

E.L.F. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

E.L.F. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette 2

Ahhh the great debate. Should you indulge in the E.L.F. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette or shouldn’t you? 32 Eyeshadows, sponge applicator, mirror, nice slim compact, $5 buck price tag….sounds dreamy right? Where could you possibly go wrong indulging since the price isn’t too bad….

This year E.L.F. has two of these limited edition palettes available for the Holidays. The one I’ll be reviewing here today is the mini version which includes 32 shadows for $5 bucks and there’s another, which I didn’t purchase, that includes 100 eyeshadows for $10 bucks.

First off, these are obviously way popular because they are sold out however E.L.F. is allowing orders for when they do come back in stock. Secondly, I purchased mine on a sheer whim because I know alot of people wanted to hear about it, see photos, etc…prior to purchasing it for themselves. And thirdly, I am a bit of a makeup snob and palettes like this don’t always garner my love and attention. Slapping 100′s of eyeshadow into a palette can prove great particularly from brands like Urban Decay, hey bring that on, but present me with one from E.L.F. and I’m naturally a little wary about the quality.

Let’s have a look and see if this bad boy lives up to it’s “professional status” as dubbed by E.L.F.

E.L.F. Mineral Blending Eye Brush 1

I’m always on the look out for great blending brushes. I love my MAC 224 but I cheat from time to time to see what else is out there. In the case of budget beauty, E.L.F. has some surprisingly good offerings in the brush world.

They recently introduced a Mineral Brush Collection that’s 100% Cruelty Free, I picked up the blending brush on a whim when perusing the new Fall Collection.
