In my previous post, I said that I had ordered 2 sets from E.L.F. Cosmetics. Well, my shipment arrived Friday. I promised I'd do a review. I think I'm going to do each item separately. I'm not sure yet. Or maybe I should just review the whole kit. (I've only tried one so far, the smokey eyes). Anyway, today I'll be reviewing the E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner, which came with both of my Get The Look sets. If bought separately, it is only a $1.
E.L.F. claims: "Gel-powder formulation infused with skin soothers instantly brightens and glides on smoothly without tugging the delicate eye area."
I received this in my sets in Black. The eyeliner is NOT scented, which I guess can be a good thing. The tip is definitely very soft and smooth. When you apply it, it goes on smooth. It is easy to apply. It's medium sized, so it is short enough to stand up in the mirror and put eyeliner on without the eyeliner hitting the mirror. When you apply, it comes out thin, you have to reapply to make it thick. For the brightening part-I didn't really see a difference. Maybe because the color was black. I don't know, but I didn't see brightening. It is also pretty easy to remove. If you have and use a blending brush, you can blend the eyeliner because it blends well.
Product: E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner Rating (out of 10): 8.5 Would I Purchase again: Yes. Recommend: Yes.

So I one day was browsing this website where you rate, review, and discuss other products. I happened to click on what they had compiled as the best makeup brushes. So, I was browsing, and I think number 5, or maybe it was number 2, no I think it was number 5. Anyway, number 5 was an E.L.F. eyeshadow brush. And I couldn't believe the price. It was ONLY $1. So, I went to their website, and fell in love with them. Their E.L.F line is great for beginners, and their studio line looks good. Of course, it's not a M.A.C, but E.L.F has very good quality products for very good deals. Their whole E.L.F collection is $1, the studio is $3, and the minerals is $5 and up.
I just wanted to share what I ordered. I'll do a review on the products when I get them, and FedEx is telling me I'll get them Thursday!
I have been looking for a smokey eye kit. I saw one at Bare Escentuals, but didn't get it. So, when I browsed their site and saw they had a kit, I had to immediately get my hands on it!
I think this look looks so soft and amazing! Can't wait to try it.
I also, using a code, got this red mini makeup set for free!
Today, I will be reviewing Bonnebell Flip Style. It is a lip product. It's more like a lip stick than lip gloss. According to Bonnebell, " f´Lip Style™ has flavors and designs that fit your personal style. Glide on a hint of smooth color with shimmering shine." "Turn heads when you apply f’Lip Style lip color. Not only will you look cool wearing it, you’ll look cool putting it on! Pretty colors, yummy smells and an awesome package! Who knew applying make-up could be so much fun."
Okay, so I bought this product awhile ago. It comes in 6 different flavors: Sweet as Strawberry pie, Chillin´ Like Vanill´in, Kiwi to My Heart, Donut You Love it, Feelin' Berry Flirty, and Watermelon You Up To. The store I went to only had Feelin' Berry Flirty and Kiwi to My Heart. I bought Kiwi To My Heart. First of all, the packaging is very very very very very adorable! I absolutely LOVE it. There is a cool design, and there is a slider to flip the cap of the lip gloss and use it. The slider also can bring more of it, sort of like in lip stick, but instead of turning you slide. The smell is soooooooooooooooo good. Mine smells like kiwi and strawberry! I just want to bite mine and eat it. It smells very good. Not really fruity either. The pigmentation isn't the best, but isn't the worst. However, when you place it on, it feels dry, as if your lips are chapped. The color isn't exactly the way it looks. It is lighter with more shimmer. I really didn't like the feeling of it on my lips.
Product: Bonnebell Flip Style (Kiwi to my Heart) Rating (out of 10): 5 Would I Buy it Again: No.

Kim Kardashian's long awaited perfume, Kim Kardashian, was released last week. She reportedly had been working on the perfume for 2-3 years. The bottle claims that the perfume "essence evokes Kim's sultry style with crisp top notes, lush mid notes, and a sexy drydown. " Notes include: Mandarin, Honey Suckle, Orange Blossom, Pink Jasmine, Tuberose, Sensual Spice, Lush Gardenia, Jacaranda Wood, Tonka Bean, Vanilla Orchid, Sexy Musk, Creamy Sandalwood.
The perfume definitely has a strong scent, so if you're not into strong scents, then it really isn't for you. It does sort of smell like Michael Kors' Very Hollywood perfume. It is also on the floral side. You can smell gardenia immediately. If you like strong floral scents, then this perfume is for you!
So last August, I got my hair cut. I think I did mention that last August, but I don't remember. Anyway, the lady used a product which I will be reviewing today. It's Bumble & Bumble Straight. This product is for wavy or curly hair. I don't exactly know how to describe it, it's like a gel, but kind of not like a gel. Anyway, using it is very very very easy. You can use this after you take a shower. Towel dry your hair- it doesn't have to be all dry. Then, apply on your hand and rub slightly. Then, section by section, work it through your fingers. Make sure you get every single strand of hair. Then blow dry and comb, and you get amazing straight hair!
When I first tried it, my hair wasn't immediately straight. You need to practice before it comes out nice! It does take a while. And you have to blow dry everywhere you applied. While blow drying, I comb my hair. It comes out better. This "gel" is odorless. My hair (through many attempts) didn't come out as straight as I wanted it too, but it was still straight enough without using a straightener, which is nice.
