Review: ELF Blush and Bronzing Duo

22 Dec

Hello everyone! Man, I am so sorry for all these posts. It’s a bit crazy at my house so posting these will put some pressure off me and keep me occupied for some time.

Description: A blush and bronzer duo similar to the NARS duo in Orgasm and Laguna. The blush is a light pink shade with gold glitters, and the bronzer is a dark brown with gold glitters (luckily not too noticeable).

Review: Could I just ask who actually owns the NARS duo in Orgasm and Laguna? A lot of you? Well I don’t have the duo but whispers on the internet says that the shades are similar as well as the packaging. Personally I’m not a huge fan of blushes with glitters in it but this blush doesn’t show that much glitter on my skin. Same thing goes for the bronzer as I mainly use bronzer to contour but the glitters don’t show up that much on my skin which is nice. I don’t have to worry about reflecting light off as much to the point where I can be a glitter bomb. Wear time is pretty good about 6 hours on my skin (it’s oily but lately it’s been dry due to the weather). I really like this product and it does work to multitask which is great. The packaging is nice and sturdy and the big mirror included is really nice. Overall, I’m going to join the legions of people who absolutely adore this blush and bronzer duo.

Cost: $3USd @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? I would as it is a great everyday blush color and the bronzer works well and who can’t resist the fact that it’s a NARS dupe.

Beauty Intro: Joe Fresh Beauty

26 Feb

This is going to be another branch in the beauty section of my blog. Beauty intros are introductions to a companies products that I would like to try and I will also post other peoples thoughts on them. Most of peoples thoughts will come from MakeupAlley. Companies that I will review will most likely be from drugstore companies and maybe some higher end brands such as MAC or Shu Uemura.

So Joe Fresh beauty… not much is known about it as it is a specifically a Canadian drugstore brand that is only found at Loblaws or Superstores across the nation.

They have a wide range of products and all the products are under $10CDN. Some of the most listed or wanted products include cheek tint, tinted lip balm, felt tip liner, cream lipsticks, and eyeshadow.

The products that really stick out for me are:

Cheek tint in Nude, Peach, Pink, Cherry, Berry and Bronze. $4CDN

Blushes in pink (review coming up), pale peach, plum, berry, and rose. $6CDN

Fine Liquid eyeliner in black or brown. $6CDN

Lip stain in sheer pink, candy, peach, apple, watermelon, and cinnamon. $6CDN

Cream lipstick in many different colors. The colors that I want to try are strawberry, watermelon, and coral. $6CDN

The Effects of Lighting

9 Feb

This photo was just for fun today but I noticed something about it…

 Now guess what’s missing!

Due to the lighting I look like I’m missing an eyebrow… rawr! That and my eyeballs look quite out of proportion…

So as you can tell lighting can make a huge difference in what you are photographing… I don’t have any other examples except for this one any my other photos of previous posts… but it’s actually not that sunny outside but so much light is coming in. Scary!

Something new that I came across:

Top Row L-R: Bling Dynasty, Red My Fortune Cookie, Hot & Spicy, Dim Sum Plum, Jade is the New Black, Suzi Says Feng Shui

Bottom Row L-R: A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find, Lucky Lucky Lavender, Meet Me on the Star Ferry, Panda-monium Pink, Pearl of Wisdom, I’m Chop-Sticking to My Story

They are all such beautiful colors! I’m thinking about picking up… Dim Sum Plum, Panda-monium Pink, Pearl of Wisdom, Suzi Says Feng Shui… they all look so good! Next time I’m heading to Haare Kosmetiks I am definately picking up some of these colors and a base coat. ^_^

Well, off the studying again got a midterm tomorrow so I mustn’t be distracted by pretty nail polish colors!
