ELF Swirl Foundation Brush

Are we not always looking for affordable makeup brushes? I certainly am! Some of my favorite brands to buy brushes from are Zoeva and Sigma, but those can still be on the more expensive side of things. So at times I love looking at brushes by drugstore brands. After my favorite brush for primer by…

ELF 16 Hr Camo Concealer

You know I love using this space for reviewing makeup product I have tried and one recent trial is this ELF Camo Concealer. This is a budget cult favorite so when I decided to do a full face of ELF I decided to try it. Unfortunately for me, the first trial wasn’t that great for…

Full Face of ELF Cosmetics

Are you ready for today’s video? I certainly am because I have been telling you I would do a full face of ELF products in the new year and here it is. I picked up most of these products on a discount during Black Friday as I thought it would be fun to do this…

ELF Matte Lip Color & Lip Exfoliator

It’s been a while since I reviewed some ELF products and it’s about time. This super affordable US brand has some hit and miss products, but in general I have loved the lipsticks I have tried from the brand. They are cheap and cheerful and generally their lipsticks are great if you’re a beginner and…

ELF Hydrating Primer

One makeup product that I introduced to my makeup routine in 2017 is primer. I was someone who never used primer before. With my dry skin, a primer just never really seemed like a product I would need. Until I discovered the concept of a hydrating primer. Because my skin could always do with more…

ELF Smudge Pots

If there is one affordable brand that many people rave about in the beauty community it is ELF Cosmetics or Eyes Lips Face. Easily to get a hold of in the US, it is far more difficult to find in The Netherlands. Their Dutch website is currently out of stock of almost everything and that…

ELF Baked Blush Rich Rose

One of my favorite blush shades for summer is this ELF Baked Blush in Rich Rose. I bought this last year and just hadn’t gotten round to reviewing this just yet. After I bought it, I became instantly obsessed and kept using it for weeks on end. So why do I like this blush so…

ELF Face Palettes: highlight, contour & blush

ELF is such an affordable make up brand and it had been yonks since I had tried some of their products. Since the European website is about a year behind on what is available in The States, this is something that easily happens. I heard so many people rave about some of their newer releases…

ELF palettes: Mad for Matte & Prism Eyeshadow

Today it’s time for a long overdue palette review. And I have a good reason for holding it off for a long time: when I first bought these ELF palettes I just wasn’t impressed. While an entire beauty community set and sang the praises of these products, I felt underwhelmed and a bit meh about…

Collective brush review: Up & Up, Sonia Kashuk & ELF

Finding affordable brushes is something I always like to do. In fact, most of the brushes I own are very affordable or were affordable when I bought them. Some of them have gone up in price by now, but still, I think that a good brush doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg….

Make up collection: Brushes

I grew up using nothing but sponge tip applicators that came with the product to apply my make up. Ever since I became more and more interested in make up, I quickly learned that you can do so much more as long as you have the right brush to do it. You can have the…

Make Up Collection: Blushes

I already showed you all of my lip products in a few separate posts, here, here and here. This time we’ll move up the face and it’s time for blushes. Here are the ones I have, I will indicate which ones are my favorites as we go along. ***Warning*** This post is picture heavy. I’m…

Blogsale

I decided it would be time to sell some of my make up. Buying make up is a bit hit or miss sometimes and so I do have a couple of things lying about that I used only once or twice, or which I swatched and it just turned out it wasn’t right for me….

Make up collection: lipgloss

Despite being sick I’ve decided to take a few pictures of my lipglosses. I actually wanted to do this in a video and swatch a few on my hand (my favorites), but I will do that during my vacation when I’ve got more time and am looking and feeling better again. The first three pictures…

I cracked and bought…

As I wrote I’ve been a bad bad girl. I had told myself I couldn’t buy anything that I didn’t need for all of June & July. However, me being me, I knew that would be a stretch. One month, yes, I managed just fine, but come end of June and sale starting everywhere I…

Budget Proof Make Up

This post is triggered by a comment Alison left last week on my post on Benefit Cosmetics. Benefit is indeed an expensive make up brand. No matter where you are located. Therefore, it is always a good idea to try and find cheaper alternatives. Drug store brands from around the globe often offer some very…

NOTW – Red & Green

So I decided to try out two new nail polishes that I got this week. Left: Right: Two very nice dark color for these autumn days I think. Brands: – E.L.F. in Cranberry on left hand – Sally Hansen in Jumpin’ Jade on right hand.
