Today`s LOTD, ELF`s Gypsy lipstick.

This is one of my less loved lipsticks.
I decided to pull this out to wear today.
I forgot how gorgeous this lipstick is!
It`s a lovely pink shade & quite inexpensive.

Price; $1.00

This can be purchased at Target, KMart, & of course ELF.

Review: Lush Dark Angels

Hey beauties!
Today I have a review on the Lush Dark Angels Cleanser.
I went to Lush to pick up a toner & was given a free sample of this cleanser to try.
This is what the product look like.
It looks like someone took coal & mashed it into little pieces.
What you do is take a bit in your hand, add water, & work into a paste.
Then, apply to your face.

This is how it looks applied.
[Scary, I know. Lol.]

I left the mask on for about 5 minutes, then rinsed with cool water.
I then applied my Tea Tree Water toner from Lush.
This stuff is amazing as well!

My thoughts;
My skin felt so refreshed after using this cleanser. It rid of a lot of the oily-ness in my skin. I noticed a significant change in my forehead. It left my skin feeling moisturized & not dry, which is definitely a plus for me. The smell & texture would be the only "bad" things about this product. Luckily, the smell did not linger long. I would suggest being careful when you apply this & make sure that you mix the product well. If not, you may "scratch" yourself.

Cost - $10.95 - $26.95 [Price may vary in store, depending on how many grams you buy.]
Not too expensive. Especially considering this product can last you a few months!

Would I purchase?
Yes. I would get a smaller size, as I may not use it quickly.

Have you ladies tried this cleanser out?
What are some of your favorite Lush products?

Thanks so much for reading!

E.L.F. Haul; Baked Blushes & Bronzers*

Hi ladies!
I recently heard that ELF had some new Baked Eyeshadows, Blushes, & Bronzers.
Of course, I had to see what they were all about!
I did not pick up any of the baked eyeshadows, I`m not a fan of baked shadows.
There are 4 blushes & 3 bronzers.
I picked up only 3 of the new blushes & 2 of the bronzers.
I will definitely have to pick up the others.
I also picked up another ELF Glossy Gloss.

These blushes, bronzers, & gloss retail for $3, but I paid half price with the coupon code ECD2.
The coupon was supposed to expire in May, but I was still able to use it! Yay!
The coupon code applies to the Studio Line products only.

I got another Glossy Gloss in Muted Mauve.
I lost my last one & figured I`d pick up another!
You can see a swatch of it here.

Here are the 3 blushes I picked up.

I picked up Pinktastic, Passion Pink, & Rich Rose.


Here are the 2 bronzers I got.

I picked up Maui & St. Lucia.

These can be purchased @
Don`t forget to check RetailMeNot for coupon codes!
ALSO, I forgot to, but purchase through eBates to get cash back!


My Thoughts;
To me the blush shades looked disappointing in the pan, however, when swatched it`s a different story. I love all of the blushes I picked up! The Maui bronzer is my favorite purchase. It`s absolutely GORGEOUS! St. Lucia I could live without, it's a bit ashy on my skin. I will have to try it as a highlight instead.

Have any of you ladies purchased any of these yet?

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!
Definitely pick you up a few!
Have a good one.
