ELF Smudge Pot review

Hello lovelies!.

I hope you are all doing well, just think the weekend is right around the corner!. It took me a long, long time to try the famous Elf Smudge Pots!. I’m really not sure why because they are so inexpensive. I really need to pick up some of the other shades and see if they are just as good.

This shade is Coco Cutie and let me tell you, it dries down and will not budge!. I’ve used this on my brows (lack there of) and it did not smear or fade a bit. Here is where you can see the shades. and they are only 3.00 🙂

Here is what ELF has to say about these:

This smooth gel formula glides on perfectly. Use it as a long-lasting eyeshadow or eyeliner! Enriched with Vitamin E to nourish and hydrate the delicate eye area.

Ingredients: Dimethicone, Caprylyl Methicone, Ozokerite, Phenyl Trimethicone, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Mica, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, Tin Oxide, Tocopheryl Acetate (Ve), Propylparaben
May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Ultramarines (CI 77007)

I highly suggest that you head over to ELF’S Website

My Current Highlighting Obsessions

Hello my lovelies!. I know its summertime everywhere, and this may be a cliché,  being that (almost) everyone needs that summer glow, but baby I need to glow year round!. Some of my picks are not meant to be used for highlighting, but really they are so multipurpose that you can put them anywhere you like.

This first product I am going to tell you about is not a highlighter that has shimmer in it, rather a natural brightening effect, hence the name, “Brightening Eye Base.” This is meant to highlight under eye circles, but works great also as a “natural” highlighter. Tony Moly is a Korean brand that I love, really love. You can purchase this HERE which is Beauty Net Korea, which is a site that I LOVE for truly authentic Korean products. You cant beat the price @ 6.65 U.S. !!!

Product number 2 is more of a recent find for me. My wonderful Husband brought this beautiful product home to me and I fell in love with it immediately feel hard for it!. Its Makeup Forever Star powder. According to their website, this is how they describe it;  The Star Powder is a silky powder that catches the light and gives the skin an intense sparkle and unparalleled shine. They come in 35 shades!, 20.00 each. I am sorry to say that nowhere on the packaging has the shade listed. You can purchase these beauties HERE on their website. IMG_7668

This next product took me by surprise!. I love several of Elf Cosmetics items but you know they do have some products that make me think, “What?”.

This is called, Highlighting Dewy Drops and was released verily recently. It comes in this one shade, not named, but its a champagne/gold tone that takes my breath away. It glides on perfectly, no smell, and long lasting as well. You can purchase this HERE at a bargain of 4.00.IMG_7652

Elf released their Illuminating Palette a few months back. I have heard mixed reviews but I really love it, especially the shade I am going to show you!. They are all buttery soft, and lasts for at least 10 hours on my skin. You can purchase this HERE for 6.00.

IMG_7667

I have yet another Elf product that I was wowed by. We all know the big, HD boxed powders right?. This is a shade that was re-named, it was called Soft luminance, now its, Shimmer. It is a beautiful shimmery highlight, that leans more pink/ white once on the cheekbone. HERE is where you can find it at a steal of 6.00.IMG_7675

Kevyn Aucon Liquid Highlighter in Candle Light is unlike anything I’ve ever tried. I went to So Choix, found HERE Which is a place where you can try super high end cosmetics at 5.00 a pop to see if you like the product or not. I choose this and I think I need the full size because its just breath taking. The formula is perfection and it lasts all day on my skin. You can purchase it HERE for 52.00

The price is steep, but, you get an ounce of this product, in pump form, I bet it would last you over a year because the pigment is on another level of greatness!.

IMG_7649

Wet N Wild is a brand that I really enjoy. This Mega Shimmer I purchased on E-bay because sadly I cant find these anymore in store. This is a perfect white shimmer, its called White Lotus. I went to E-bay, typed in White Lotus and their are a huge amount on the site which I will link; HERE prices ranging from 3.00-7.00.

IMG_7671

Lastly I have a Highlighter from a truly wonderful Indie brand known as Star Crushed Minerals. I was so excited when I heard about this brand, found on Instagram. The owner is super sweet, the products speak for themselves, and prices are great!.

This is a True Gold highlighter, hence the shade, Honey Pot you get a whopping 3Grams of product that comes in a awesome, 10Gram jar *with a sifter!!. Price is 8.00 and you can get this, HERE

ELF Cosmetics All Over Color Stick Swatch and Review

Hello my loves!, I hope you are all doing well.

All links will be at the bottom of post 🙂

Not long ago I placed an order on Shop Miss A, a website where they have a vast variety of items to choose from, and every single thing is 1.00, with a flat shipping rate of 3.95 if you live in the U.S. I know that they do ship World-Wide but I do not know what their rates are.

 The color stick shade I ordered is in Persimmon a beautiful pink/gold and i adore it. Here are some pictures for you.

IMG_3720 IMG_3718 IMG_3719

It smells nice and fruity, not overly sweet, its just right in my book. The texture is as smooth as silk, and it wore on my dry(er) skin for about 9 hours. The links I am including are all places where I find and purchase ELF from. I hope you have found this post helpful. Thank you so much for reading and I will see you soon!.

My Lipstick Collection

Hello my Dear Readers!,

I hope you are all having a good day. When I say (collection) I mean that lightly but it is titled as such because that’s really what this is. I have 15 Lipsticks, 1 Lipstick primer, and 1 Lip liner.

First I will tell you about the Lip primer. It is from ColourPop Cosmetics which you can find HERE for 5.00.

It is clear in color, and has a very nice sweet smell that i adore. Here is what ColourPop says about their wonderful product,”Our Lippie Primer enhances the wear of any lip product and keeps your lips looking and feeling healthy!.Our primer contains itty bitty spherical beads that fill in fine lines making lips instantly smooth and plump! It also contains mango, avocado and shea butter for moisture and Vitamin E, which soothes your lips. I think this product is great!.

IMG_3244[1]

Next I will share the Lip liner I have which is from Stargazer Cosmetics which you can find HERE

IMG_3266[1] IMG_3265[1]I wear Red lipstick a lot  I think a true red or an orange-red looks best on my pale, but with warm undertones. For 2.50 this is a great lip liner that does exactly what it should!.

Back to ColourPop This lipstick is one(RAW); I was not sure about wearing but I really just had to have it, it don’t flatter me too well, but when i mix it with a darker blue liquid lipstick,which i will get to later it looks better on me. HERE is Raw’s page and costs 5.00 This has a Satin finish and wears for at least 5 hours on me.

IMG_3243[1] IMG_3242[1]

Sleek Cosmetics, their Pout Paints are so good you guys I love them!, they wear for at least 6 hours and leave a slight stain behind. They are 7.49. This first color is Peek-A-Bloo so cute right?. Which you can purchase Here This is the blue I mix with the above Lippie (RAW) to make it look better on me.

IMG_3248[1]IMG_3247[1]The next Pout Paint is called Lava, same price, wears beautifully too.

IMG_3246[1] IMG_3245[1]The next brand is Jcat Beauty which I am new to this brand, but so happy that I heard about them on Instagram!. The lip products I am showing you are called Wonder Lip Paints and the two that I have are amazing!. They wear for hours just like the Pout Paints, and they are at a great price as well at 4.99!!!!. This first color is 2nd Impossible thing and you can get it Here

IMG_3236[1] IMG_3235[1]

The second Wonder Lip Paint I own is called Pishslaver and you can get that Here

IMG_3240[1] IMG_3239[1]Stargazer Cosmetics holds a special place in my heart. I have, and love so so so many products from their wonderfully priced items that do not skimp on the quality. The first Lipstick I am showing is their UV Neon lipstick in Violet you can get it Here for 3.50!! I was floored at how long the color stayed vibrant on me, like 5 hours, and truly creamy as well.

IMG_3263[1] IMG_3264[1]2nd color is UV Neon in Pink which you can get Here Just as creamy, just as long-lasting as well.

IMG_3262[1] IMG_3261[1]

ELF Cosmetics, I love many things from this affordable brand. Their moisturizing Lipsticks are super creamy, smell great. The downfall to these are that they are so creamy that I find that you really need to wear a lip primer/liner under so they will not feather out. The first color is Coral cutie and you can get it Here

IMG_3219[1]

2nd is Flirty and Fabulous found Here

IMG_3225[1]

3rd is Velvet Rope found Here

IMG_3226[1]

NYC Cosmetics (AKA) New York Color is another famously inexpressive line found at your local Walmart or, CVS. This brand is hit and miss for me, you either REALLY like a product or REALLY dislike a product. Their lipsticks I have had wonderful luck with and I only have 1!!!!!. Its Their Expert Last line color is Traffic Jam and they only cost 1.99 at my Walmart where I live. Very pigmented, creamy and lasts for at least 4 hours, no lip liner needed, this does not feather on me.

IMG_3230[1]

This Beauty here is technically called a Lip Lacquer but, it wears like a lip gloss, wear for a couple of hours but oh so very pretty!, just look at that peachy-goldness!. The Hard Candy Lippie in 7-digits in all her beauty. Sadly Hard Candy does not have an online store, and I am sorry I cannot locate it on Walmart’s webpage, but,I bet you have a Walmart near by to go and get this! (Hard Candy is a brand ONLY found at Walmart).

IMG_3260[1] IMG_3257[1]

Cover girl Lip Lava Lip gloss in the shade Muava Lava is such a pretty deep red, a color that i normally would not wear but the formula and color makes me use it. Not at all sticky, rich color payoff in an easy swipe, no smell, and wear very well for a gloss, 3 hours on me. You can purchase this Here for 5.69.

IMG_3249[1]IMG_3251[1]

Rimmel London Show off Lip Lacquer in Luna. I have only had this for 1 month and I swear the color changed on me, not from going bad, it smells and looks fine but at first it was a pure peach, now its more orange, either way I love the color and formula, it smells nice, and wears for 4 hours on me. You can buy this online Here

IMG_3254[1]IMG_3253[1]

And my very last Lipstick is none other than Wet -n- Wild’s Just Peachy. I adore this color, and they just re-formulated their lipsticks and made them non-drying, like they were before (on me at least). You can purchase this gem Here

Until next time,Always Sincerely, Amber Morris.

Review on Elf’s Eye Primer & Liner Sealer

Hello my dear readers😀.

Today I have for you my thoughts on Elf’s primer and sealer and I hope this is helpful. If you have never heard of Elf (aka) EyesLipsFace your in for a treat because most of everything I have tried from their line have became my go to’s, for example; their translucent HD Powder. The eye primer in this duo is a skin toned flesh color that will even out the color on your eyelids if you have veins, darkness, ect…. I don’t think that this eye shadow primer is thaaaaat great simply because I have dry eyelids and it really just looks clumpy on me and you can imagine how that looks😖. I suppose if you have normal~oily lids this may work for you. 

On the other end the Liner Sealer is something I am very excited about😃. Think of Illamasqua’s  sealing gel, among others.  I used this on a random fine loose glitter as was surprised how quickly it set the glitter to a completely budge proof state. And you know what else?; it is waterproof as well!. I will continue to purchase this little gem just for the Liner Sealer you can’t beat the 3.00 price tag!.  This is what the product looks like,

   

 

You can find this product HERE on Elf’s online store. You can also find *select Elf items at Target.  I hope everyone has a great day. Talk to you soon😉.
