Beauty Products Mini Haul+Review

fullsizeoutput_61b.jpegSomehow whenever I go to get just a few things from the store I end up leaving with way more then I planned. I recently needed to get more concealer and walked out with notebooks and a few beauty products. Since I got some new products I decided to try them and do a quick review.fullsizeoutput_61aIMG_6291IMG_6302 Translucent Powder- E.L.F. has really good prices and so when I’m at the store I think it’s only $5, or something around their I can totally afford it, and then I walk out with a bunch of makeup products that I don’t need. I’ve never used a translucent powder before this one. I wasn’t a huge fan of the powder, maybe it’s because I’ve never used it before, but it made the concealer under my eyes feel a bit cakey.fullsizeoutput_617IMG_6299Usually by the end of the day I have more eyeshadow under my eyes then on my eyelids and truth be told I didn’t think setting spray would help, but I was very wrong. On the first day I tried this I was running around, I was taking pictures outside, finishing some things for school, basically just sweating and really testing this product out. After running around all day I checked my makeup and their was a little mascara under my eyes, but everything else was still in place. I was really surprised by how well this product worked, especially for he price. This will be going into my everyday makeup routine. fullsizeoutput_633.jpegDry Shampoo- So while I was walking up and down the isles at the drug store I saw this, it’s a little bottle of dry shampoo. I’ve been looking for a really good dry shampoo and decided to try this one out. It works really well. It gave my hair a lot of volume and it didn’t leave white streaks or specks after using it like a lot of dry shampoos. By the end of the day my hair was looking oily again, but I just put a little more in and the problem was fixed. Their is down side which is it smells like hairspray. This is the first dry shampoo I’ve used that smells like hairspray, usually they have a scent, but the smell did fade a bit after a few minutes. Besides the smell this is one of the best dry shampoos I have used. fullsizeoutput_619

Elf Product Review

fullsizeoutput_485fullsizeoutput_491I have tried a few e.l.f. products before, but I was at the drugstore and decided to test a few more out. E.l.f. has great prices, so if their products end up working well that would be a huge win. I did a review of one of their eyeshadow pallets here.fullsizeoutput_482fullsizeoutput_492fullsizeoutput_484Illuminating Palette: For the price this product isn’t bad, but it isn’t something I would reach for on daily basis. The highlight isn’t bad, but the palette doesn’t have great pigmentation. It looked nice, you just have to use more than you think to get it to show up well. fullsizeoutput_490Everyday Lash Collection: I didn’t like these falsies. I won’t pretend to be great at applying false lashes, but I could not get these to stay. No matter how much glue I put on it was not going to stay. I like the look of the lashes, just use a different eye lash glue. The pack came with two different eyelashes, but I only got the ones in the picture to work. They also come with a pair of tweezers to help you apply the lashes. fullsizeoutput_47dMolten Liquid eyeshadow: The color is actually really nice. I’m thinking about getting the gold one as well because I think it will be perfect for Christmas and winter in general. It blends really easily and keeps its color. I don’t use glittery eyeshadow often because I end up with it all over my face by the end of the day, but this stays in place while still giving you a little sparkle. I was worried that the eyeshadow wouldn’t blend well, but I had no problems. It blended easily and was buildable, probably my favorite product from this haul!fullsizeoutput_47cConcealer: I got this in ivory and was worried about the shade when I opened it. I almost didn’t try it because it looked to dark for my skin tone, but once I blended it, the color matched my skin really well. I’ve never used a concealer like this one before and I was pleasantly surprised. It has a creamy texture and blends easily. It hides blemishes well and it does help with dark circles though I like to using something lighter to brighten up under my eyes. I think I’ll be using this more often to cover up my blemishes. I’ll especially be using this during the summer as it looks really natural.fullsizeoutput_47aConcealer on left and liquid eyeshadow on the right

Elf Mad for Matte Palette Review

For the price these are good eyeshadows, but compared to too faced or Urban decay, their not as good. A problem I noticed is that even with eye primer, after about an hour I would have eyeshadow below my eye, and it also comes off really easily. If you are just getting into makeup elf is a great brand, its inexpensive, and is good quality especially for the price.

Their not as pigmented as I would have liked and you deficiently have to build the color, but the colors did blend pretty well. I mostly like it for filling in my eyebrows.
