E.L.F. Essentials Eyes Get The Look Bombshell Brown Review and Swatches

E.L.F. Essentials Eyes Get The Look Bombshell Brown 17

E.L.F. Cosmetics has several new kits which feature a smoky eye theme for $5. The kits include everything you need to create the perfect traditional smoky eye look (black) or a brown smoky eye.

The sets each include:

  • E.L.F. Eyeshadow Trio
  • E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner
  • E.L.F. Mechanical Eye Lash Curler
  • E.L.F. Professional Eye Shadow Brush
  • E.L.F. Lengthening & Defining Mascara

At $5 you’re paying a buck each per an item in the set. Not bad eh? I do find E.L.F. products hit or miss in most cases but I still like to try things out to see what might be a winner and what might be a big old FAIL.

I purchased the E.L.F. Essentials Eyes Get The Look Bombshell Brown because I’m really into smoky brown looks lately thanks to the Urban Decay Naked Palette plus it seems interesting enough for my Beauty on a Budget category.

Was it worth it?

Lancome French Touch Lipstick Cherry Kiki and Lancome Ombre Magnetique 11

I totally found the perfect vampy Fall lip shade! Gasp! I didn’t think I’d ever come across a shade that actually worked well for a vampy lip but the Lancome Cult Rouge French Touch Lipstick in Cherry Kiki is it! These are a set of limited edition collector lipsticks that celebrate Lancome’s 75th Anniversary. The shades are available at Neiman Marcus and Saks if you’re lemming them.

Lush Maple Taffy Lip Balm Review and Photos

Lush Maple Taffy Lip Balm 1

Lush Maple Taffy Lip Balm came across as a tad weird for a Holiday release. I think maple and I automatically think Fall. But Lush released it as special ode to Canadian friends, inspired by the tradition of tapping maple sap and making sweet candy treats from it.

The Body Shop Smoke & Fire Collection Review, Swatches, Photos The Body Shop Fall 2010

I can’t believe how deep we are into Fall already.  I feel like yesterday was Summer. Seriously, last week I had my AC on because it was so warm and this week I have my heat on because it’s so much cooler in the evening.

Nothing captured Fall this year for me like The Body Shop Smoke & Mirrors Collection. The face powder alone were enough to send me into fits of joy! Honestly, The Body Shop releases some killer limited edition sets and the new Smoke & Mirrors Collection for Fall 2010 happens to be one of this collections that has some incredible offerings that you should be hauling for a warm, Fall look.

Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick Set Volume 1 Review, Swatches, Photos

Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick Set Volume 1 22

I haven’t tried the Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick as of yet. I’m more a shadow, palette kinda girl and that’s the first thing I hit up from a brand with lip products coming at last place after I’ve explored everything else. Although the packaging was instantly deemed wicked by me after seeing the lipstick, I never bothered swatching or playing with it for some reason.

However, when the new Kat Von D Holiday Gift Sets launched at Sephora I was instantly attracted to the get more, pay less vibe going on with the Painted Love Lipstick Set. Awesome packaging plus six shades of Painted Love Lipstick for me to try out for $28 bucks.
