ELF Haul... AGAIN!!! :D

So I got two of my three ELF orders already so I'm going to go ahead and show you these. The third one will most likely get here on Monday. So I did go overboard on the ELF hauling just a bit right? Just a tad hahaha :D I love ELF what can I say?! Ok So I just took pictures of the things I totally forgot to do swatches because I was busy with my son who at the moment is asleep and will probably wake up any minute but anyways on to the products. The products will not  be grouped in the way they were ordered. I'm just going to group similar things together.

First up I ordered some blushes. I got in total seven blushes I believe. All from the Studio line. I am missing Giddy Gold which I will hopefully get next time I make another order. Some of these are also so much brighter in person than they are in the pictures and all of them are gorgeous! There is a variation from semi-matte to intense shimmer.

Next up I got the three blush/bronzer duos they had. I love all three! Oh and St. Lucia is the same as the original bronzed/blushed duo! I took it out of the package and compared it and then flipped it around, looked at the sticker that has the name and it said blushed and bronzed! So it is the same as the original one. Also I have been reading on blogs and seeing on Youtube that the packaging is smaller on these new ones but I compared it to my blushed/bronzed that I already had and they are the same size. So I have no idea what is going on. But these are really nice duos. I highly recommend them! 

Then I also got two of the baked blushes. I like them both but they are extremely shimmery. I will probably use Pinktastic as a highlighter. I have another one in the order I will get on Monday and then one that is always out of stock so I will have to wait on that one as well as the baked bronzers since the two that I really want are always out of stock :/ Anyways these have really good texture and I really think they are gorgeous but if you really don't like shimmer, don't get them.

Next up I got some concealers! I got 4 of these Tone Correcting Concealers in Light Beige and let me just tell you the color you see is not the color that is in the tube. I have no idea why. But Light Beige is more yellowy than it looks in the tube. It has a pretty good consistency but I have not yet tested it on my face but so far I like how it feels. I also got two All Over Cover Sticks in Apricot Beige and it works amazing! It has great coverage! I also got a Cover Everything Concealer in Light and it is really nice as well. I could see myself using this to conceal my brows because it has a really nice creamy consistency. 

Now for the random  buys haha! I got a concealer brush from the Essential line. I also got two liquid liners from the Essential line which are gorgeous! I really like them. I also got a brow kit from the Studio line in Medium. I like it, the powder is really soft and almost feels creamy! I also got two lipsticks from the Essential line in Voodoo and Fantasy which are gorgeous colors and these lipsticks are really good. I already have some from this line and they are a good consistency and they smell fruity! I also got a Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Matte Bronze which is exactly what it is named hahaha :) I also got two Eye Primers in Sheer which I didn't take a picture of because I forgot haha but they are just the primers from the Essential line.

So that is EVERYTHING that I got lol It's a lot I know! But I hope you guys enjoyed! Thank you for reading!! Until next time! Have a amazing day!

Weekend Haul!

 This weekend I just got a little bit of things. Some things I had been looking for for a while like the Sinful Colors nail polishes and the Wet n Wild nail polishes. The rest of the stuff was some random finds that I got while at the stores.

First up I got these Eyes Smudge pots at a local dollar store. They are the ones that are sold at Hot Topic for $3.99 but I got each for $1. They carry all sorts of goodies there and sometimes they have closeouts.

L to R: Muse, In The Mist, Smokin, Inkwell, Mesmerize and Jungle Trail

Next up I went to Walgreens because I had been wanting to find the Sinful colors Muse/Enchanted collection and the Wet n Wild's Pick Your Poison collection and lucky me! I found them both! Oh I also found the ELF Disney Villain's sets but I really didn't want them that bad. I also found this eyeshadow set from Wet n Wild for .49! I got the color Spellbound which I had been eyeing for a while. They also had other colors and even some lipstick sets. I wish I would have known so I could have gotten some of the lipsticks but they were colors I already had from the Megalast collection.
L to R: Poison Ivy, Toxic Apple, Venomous Vixen, Lethal Injection, Deadly Dose and Root Of All Evil

Only $0.49! Say What?!

 Next I went to two Dollar Trees.  I got these L'Oreal Super Liners at one Dollar Tree and the blushes at another one. I didn't swatch the blushes because it was hard to capture the colors. I also got a Glitter Gloss from ELF at the Dollar Tree where I got the blushes but I couldn't find it when I was going to take the pictures. I got it in the color Golden Glitz.

L to R: Blue Jaded, Lucky Starling, French Kiss, Gold Thrush, Twilight and Purple Craze

I hope you guys enjoyed this little haul and I know I had said no more shopping but I gave in! Next haul will probably be my birthday haul if not my ELF haul I am just waiting to get all of it to do one big haul. Thank you for reading!

FOTD: Butterfly Kisses!

 Today I have this bright fun look for you guys today! I loved this look!!! I thought it was so fun and playful. I used my 180 palette which has to be my favorite palette so far. I will try to get up a review post as soon  as I can because this is the most amazing palette!

Excuse the little mess ups
I really liked how this look turned out. I think it looks better with a white eyeliner in the waterline because I think it makes it look that much brighter as opposed to a black liner. It would make it more closed in and not as vibrant.

For my lips I used this LOL Lip Out Loud! Lip gloss from Jordana in the color FYI which is a really pretty pink color. I don't really like the smell of this gloss but the consistency is ok and the price is ok as well. I got it for $1.99.

1. I took this pink and put it on the outer 2/3 of my lid.
2. I then took this purple and blended it in my crease and a bit up.
3. I took this teal color and put in on my lower lash line.
4. I took this shimmery white and placed it on the inner part of my lid as a highlight.
5. I took the light matte color from Wet n Wild Vanity palette and used it as a highlight and to blend out the harsh lines.
6. I lined my eyes with black liquid liner, added mascara, added Kiss's Lashes in 07 and put a white eyeliner in my waterline.

I hope you guys enjoyed this look. I know it is similar to a look I have done before but I just really like these pastely colored looks! Have a nice night and day tomorrow! :) I know I will! One of my ELF orders will be here tomorrow!!!

FOTD: Digging You For Gold

 I have a look for you guys today! I used a Giovi palette I got in Texas last year at a random little store lol It's really nice! It has some really pretty shades as you will be able to see in the picture below. I decided to curl my hair today! I wanted to look snazy hahaha :) Hope I pulled it off!

This is the eye look. I used a really pretty coppery color from the palette as the main focus which looked way better in person believe me!

On my lips I just used Wet n Wild's Megashield lipstick in Peach Keen which I think is a really nice color to go with this look. It is a really pretty coppery nude color. It is a really pretty everyday color!

For my blush/contour I used ELF's Mellow Mauve. It is a really pretty mauve color with sparkle. Not intense sparkle, just enough! ;)

I used Jordana's Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara which is my all time favorite mascara! It makes my eyelashes amazing! I also used Jordana's FabuLiner on my top lashline and on my inner bottom lash line I used L.A. Colors Glitter Liner in Firefly.

1. I took this color from Wet n Wild's Vanity palette and put it in my crease as my transition color.
2. I took this copper color and put it in the middle of my lid.
3. I took this light shimmery color and put it in the inner part of my eyelid blending it in with the copper color.
4. Is really supposed to be #5 put I mixed them up! :/ I took this color on my outer V and up into my crease to darken it up a bit.
5. I then took #4 and applied it as my highlight color as well as using it to blend out any harsh lines.
6. I lined my eyes added mascara, then added the gold glitter liner in the inner part of my lower lash line.
7. I took this "MAC" pigment that I got off of Ebay and added it to my inner tear duct to give it something extra.
8. And you are done!

I hope you guys enjoyed this look although it's quite simple because I had important errands to run so sorry :/ Anyways I hope you guys have a good night and good next day!


P.S. Only NINE more days and I'm 21!!! YAYAY :D

ELF Haul! :)

So another haul! I had this one overdo as well. It is some stuff I ordered online and then some stuff I bought at the stores this weekend. I have another order in the mail right now so when I get it it will go up. 

First up I got these two Luscious Liquid Lipsticks in Nude Pink and Perfect Pink. They are some really pretty shades and have a pretty decent texture. Below I have a picture of some swatches. These two lipsticks came in my ELF haul.  


Then I got some blushes. I got the powder blush at Target for $3. It is in the color Candid Coral. I really think this is a nice color. It's a perfect coral-y peachy color. The texture is nice and soft. Then I got two cream blushes at Deals each for $1 each! And these blushes are still on the website for $6 so holla! hahaha When I was swatching these I really didn't like the texture so I'm glad I paid $1 instead of $6. They are some pretty shades don't get me wrong but the texture, it's weird.

Then I got these three concealer palettes. These were in my ELF order. The consistency of these is nice and soft and I really like them! I got a Complete Coverage Concealer in Light. I got two Corrective Concealers in Neutralize & Conceal and Erase & Conceal. I got these for $3 each in my ELF order.

So I got two Stipple brushes from their studio collection for $3 each. I really like this brush. At first I was like uh no, but when I actually tried it I definitely fell in love! I also got this eyeliner pen for $1 from the essential line and it is really good. The stipple brushes I got from the ELF order and the pen I got from Target.

I also got this eyeshadow palette in Neutral. I had got it because on Nouveau Cheap she had talked about how it had dupes for the Naked palette and the colors looked pretty so I said why not. This palette was $3.
1. Flirt Cream Blush
2. Heartbreaker Cream Blush
3. Perfect Pink Liquid Lipstick
4. Nude Pink Liquid Lipstick
5. Black Waterproof Eyeliner Pen
6. Candid Coral Blush
Palette swatches in the order of the palette picture above. As you can see some of them are intensely glittery.

I hope you guys enjoyed this haul and give ELF a try if you haven't already. They have some misses but definitely a lot of hits! I really enjoy this brand and they come out with really nice stuff.

Have an awesome night and day tomorrow!
