FOTD; Hurricane Irene

So today, Miss Irene visited. Sigh. All day I was without power[Boo!]. Luckily, not too much damage. A few fallen trees & my porch sunk in. But my family is safe, the most important thing! The only thing besides sleeping I could do, was makeup! So I pulled out my old ELF palette & did a smoky eye.

What I used;
What I used from the E.L.F. Beauty Book - Smoky Eye Edition.
Cheeks;
Milani Baked Blush in Corallina.
MAC MSF in Redhead to highlight.

Lips;
Rosebud Lip Salve.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Mink.

Hope you ladies enjoyed & my east coast ladies stayed safe!

Avon Haul #2;

Hi ladies!
First off, I wan to thank each & everyone of my followers sooo much for following my blog! I am now at 100+ followers! I will be having a giveaway soon. :]

Now onto the post. I recently placed an order for MORE Avon. Can you say addicted? Lol.
I actually got some items on sale & a new product that will be coming out soon! :D

I purchased 2 of the Avon Eye Makeup Remover Lotion. Vee from GDE raved about this product, so I decided to try this out. Plus it was only $.99! I also picked up 2 more of the Smooth Velvet Lipcolors in Chocolate Mousse & Cafe Au Lait[$.99 each]. I ordered more to have a giveaway, but they were sold out. :/

This is the new Mark. Super Flip palette. It will be released shortly.
I got to preview it since I was a rep.
Being the makeup addict I am, I could not resist purchasing! :]
This side is a face illuminator.
The colors are hard to pick up on the camera. :/

Then, you flip it & the other side is 9 eyeshadows.
These colors are VERY pretty. Will be swatching closer to the release date.
Lastly, I purchased Avon's Anew Clinical Advanced Dermabrasion System. It is a 8 week system with 4 different levels. It claims to aid dry, flaky skin, shrink pores, deminsh fine lines, reduce the appearance of dark spots, among other things. I am SUPER excited to try this out!

I hope you guys enjoyed this haul.
If you have any questions, please do ask.

E.L.F. Haul;

Hi guys!
So today I`m going to share my ELF haul with you. I actually am a little disappointed with this order. My package looked kinda small when I got it, I figured it was just my imagination. However, I was missing 3 items. I did not get any type of notification that my items were out of stock like I normally would. I did discover 2 were out of stock, so I got a refund. I e-mailed ELF yesterday about the 3rd item & got a reply that night that they would mail it out ASAP. So I`ll share that item in a later post. Here is what I did receive.

3 Glossy Glosses in Tangy Tangerine, Wild Watermelon, &Funky Fuchsia.

2 of the $1 Blending Brushes[which I am loving!]
&Tone Correcting Concealer in Apricot[the other I ordered was OOS :/].
Conditioning Lip Balm in Bombshell Brown
& Pressed Powder in Almond
I REALLY love the packaging of the glosses!
They have a brush applicator which I love as well!

Pressed Powder in Almond, Tone Correcting Concealer in Apricot, & Conditioning Lip Balm in Bombshell Brown.

Swatches.

Overall I really like everything I got. The concealer is a bit too light, so I may give it to my sister.
I am DEF ordering more of the glosses, too bad another one I really wanted was out.

ELF can be purchased at www.eyeslipsface.com

Review: MAC Studio Moisture Tint;

As requested, I`m going to share my review & thoughts of the MAC Studio Moisture Tint[in Dark].

Pros:
Easy to blend.
Lightweight.
Has not caused me any breakouts.
Lasts a long time. [I`ve had mines for a few months.]
SPF15.
Cons:
Smell isn't too pleasant.
Price. [$29.50, yikes!]

Here is a swatch of the color;
Blended into my skin;
How I use MAC`s Studio Moisture Tint;
I start with a freshly washed face. I then moisturize my face, I use Nivea creme. [I NEED the added moisturizer due to my dry skin.] Then I apply the MAC Studio Tinted Moisturizer lightly onto my cheeks, forehead, & a tiny bit on my nose & chin. I then buff the tinted moisturizer into my skin with E.L.F`s Studio Powder Brush. Lastly, to set the tinted moisturizer, I used my MAC Studio Fix Powder in C8.

My thoughts;
I went to my local MAC counter to get matched for foundation as I can never find the perfect shade in drugstore brands. I was informed by one of the MUAs how she thought I didn`t need a heavy coverage, just something light. I totally agreed with her. She suggested the MAC Studio Moisture Tint[My shade is Dark], I tried it & it was actually very nice & blended well. However, when she told me the price, I wanted to immediately bolt out of the store! Lol. I tried ELF's TM, but couldn`t find the right shade[again]. I figured why no go ahead & purchase this. It actually has lasted a while. I bought this in February & still have a ton of product left. A little can REALLY go a long way with this TM. I love that this product is weightless on my skin & I love it! No breakouts from this as of yet. Overall I am happy with this purchase & will def be buying again once I run out!

BH Cosmetics Mini Haul;

Hi guys! I`m on a roll this week, huh?
Recently I received an e-mail from BH Cosmetics about their huge summer sale. I was eyeing the single shadows they have since I have a Z Palette I need to fill up. I noticed it was cheaper to get the 15 Color Eyeshadow Pro Palette. Originally this palette would have cost $34.95, I only paid $20.27[+ S&H]. With this palette I got to pick & choose what colors I wanted & what type of shadow finish I wanted. They have 120 colors to choose from which was a little overwhelming. I did finally narrow my list down to 15 & placed my order. My order shipped via UPS on Monday &arrived on Friday. So let's get onto the palette!
Here are the shadows. Soooo pretty! :]
How I organized my palette;

I haven't used this palette yet. However, I have swatched a few of the colors. The shimmery metallic purple in the bottom corner is GORGEOUS! Some of the matte shades are very sheer, so I`m a little disappointed in that. The metallic & shimmer shades seem to be very pigmented vs the matte shades. It's a shame since I really love matte shades. I certainly will be doing swatches soon.

I did check BH Cosmetics' site, the sale is still going on!
Go ahead & check them out.


Hope you guys enjoyed this post.
:]

Avon Haul;

Hey guys! Sorry for the mini break.
I recently made a purchase with a local Avon rep & decided to share what I bought.
I bought some hair items[I`m a hair product junkie!] & some lip products.
Mark.`s Curl Goddess Styling Cream - $6.00
Advanced Techniques Frizz Control Curl Defining Gel - $4.99[On Sale]
Avon Smooth Velvet Lip Colors in Plumful & Pink Fluff - $.99[YES, $.99! Originally $6 Holla!]
Mark. Shine Tube "Hook Up" Lips Glosses in Caramel & Marshmellow - $2.99[On Sale]

Above are swatches of the Velvet Lip Colors. The texture reminds me of the NYX Matte Lip Cremes.
These have more shine than the NYX MLCs.

Overall I`m happy with my purchase. I LOVE the velvet lip colors!
Pink Fluff is gorgeous! I can`t WAIT to try the gel & curl creme.
