Review: Eyes-Lips-Face Eyebrow Kit


Eyes-Lips-Face (aka E.L.F.) has recently begun selling a variety of products at Target stores. I recently picked up a couple things, including this mini brow kit. I am always looking for ways to improve my brow application, and it looked pretty interesting, especially since it was only $3! But, is it even worth $3? Read on to find out!

Things I am excited about!

Hi guys! So, sadly my camera broke the other day-- my husband was using it and dropped it face down while the lens was out, so the lens is totally broken now :( My sister is going to let me use hers, but anyways, in the mean time I wanted to share some of the things I've recently purchased and am so excited to receive:

-MAC Blue Pigment
-MAC Nightlight Pigment
-MAC Win Win and Liquid Lurex Dazzle Lipsticks

...and from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I ordered:
-Vigoss Jeans
-Steve Madden boots
-Polka Dot Hosiery
-Fire Ruffled Dress

Anyways when it all arrives I will definitely love sharing it all with you.

What are some things you're excited about?

June Favorites!


I know that it is already halfway through July (where does the time go?!), but I wanted to share my fave products for June- all MAC, coincidentally!

1) 219 Pencil Brush- I have owned this brush for a few years now, and lately I've really liked using it for crease work. It allows you to create the most detailed placement of your crease. I then use the 226 to blend out the crease better.

2) Lazy Day Lipstick- This is a gorgeous pale pink- just what I've been looking for! Sadly, mine arrived already falling off the base, and since it is such a pretty color, I picked up a second one from Bloomingdales. It also is kind of soft and fragile but still usable.

3) Dressmaker, Dressmaker Lipstick- I love this coral from Pret-A-Papier. It was sold out pretty much everywhere, but I was able to locate it from Bloomingdales. I am so glad I picked it up, because it's one of the few wearable corals I've found lately.

4) Blitz-N-Glitz Fluidline- Because it has little gold flecks, it is much more wearable than Blacktrack. It is softer and great for a smokey eye. Loves it!

5) Hipness Blush- Just a really beautiful summer color! :)

What are your fave products lately?

Review: Bare Escentuals 'Flawless Radiance'


So, BE recently held a 20% off sale, which prompted me to stock up on a couple of my favorite BE products. In addition, I picked up 'Flawless Radiance', a highlighter-type product, described to give you a "gentle luminosity and the appearance of a naturally flawless complexion". Well hey, I'd love to have flawless skin- real or not!- so I thought why not?

What's the verdict? Keep reading to find out!

Stereo Rose- What is your story?


Hi guys! Sorry I've been so M.I.A. lately- work has kept me kinda busy lately, but I definitely wanted to share my thoughts on Stereo Rose, since it seems to be such a hot topic lately, right? So, if you can stomach a bit more on Stereo Rose, keep reading!

MAC In the Groove: What are you hauling?

Well things are kinda hectic here right now, so I haven't had much time to update! But I did manage to pre-order for MAC's In the Groove collection, which is being released on July 8. This looks like such a beautiful collection- I'm really excited for it! I pre-ordered:

-Stereo Rose MSF
-Hang Loose MB
-Jazzed l/s
-Go for it l/s
-Chillin' c/g

I have had my eyes on several of the mineral eyeshadows, but when it comes down to it, I am swamped with eyeshadows, and I hate to buy things that I will probably end up selling off later anyways. I love that satin texture though!

The lipsticks seem so pretty from all the pictures I've seen- they just look rich and vibrant- can I have them all? :D I am drooling over how Go for it l/s with Chillin' c/g on top will be! Totally funky!

And although I try to avoid most mineral blushes (just b/c I have too many!), I couldn't skip the lavender/pink Hang Loose.

Finally of course is Stereo Rose. I will be limiting myself to one (some people are getting 3 or 4- crazy!), since I am honestly just buying it for the hype. I imagine it will be beautiful like in the pictures, but I have not used an MSF up yet, and I've got some from 5 years ago.

Anyways, what about you- what are you eyeing from In the Groove?
