Cleansers -E.L.F. - Studio Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths
BellaGlam 7/12/2010 1:20:00 AM
I bought these from my local grocery store for $2.99 because I ran out of my MAC makeup remover wipes, and didn't have time to run out to the mall.
These are a little confusing to me, what is the point of a makeup wipe that is supposed to be on the go and quick use when you have to wash your face after. At first I didn't read the package and I didn't rinse my face off after and it left a gross soapy residue on my face : (
The actual wipes aren't to moist but do an okay job at removing my makeup mask at night, if I use like 3 of them...The smell nice...Overall I wouldn't recommend these and I won't repurchase. Next time I need wipes in a pinch I'll buy the store brand or pay a little more for the nutrogena or olay ones like I usually do.
I LOVE this blush, well it's a highlight but you get it under the blush section of the website.
This has been my go to highlight since I got it, it's so pretty applied to the cheekbone as a highlight over almost any blush or even bronzer, the gold tones in it really make your skin look warm and glowing.
I will for sure be ordering a backup of this! & I HIGHLY recommend!
I love is mascara almost as I love the original lash blast, but it's not a replacement. The original is my HG, length was terrible, I don't feel like this is a fusion of the two I feel like it's just a more improved lengthening version.
This makes my lashes soo long just like false lashes...no volume at all though. I can live with that though because I use the original and this one together and I get the perfect false lash look it's incredible!!!
I love the purple tube and I like how they went back to the original fat tube.
Blush -New York Color - Blushable Creme Stick [DISCONTINUED]

I'm obsessed with these!
They are so pigmented and easy to blend, I wear them under my powder blushes and they look amazing, I will repurchase these as long as they are available and I HIGHLY recommend them for anyone who loves cream blushes or wants to try one for pretty cheep
Highlighters -E.L.F. - Shimmering Facial Whip - Toasted
BellaGlam 7/2/2010 2:13:00 AM
I love the E.L.F shimmering facial whips, but this one is not so great. It is like a taupe gray brown, just not very flattering. It's also not as shimmery as the other colors (I use these as highlights) It's a good product overall I just don't love this shade.
Polishes -New York Color - In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish
BellaGlam 7/2/2010 12:07:00 AM
I picked 4 of these up because I had a buy one get one free coupon, and to be honest I wasn't expecting much. I was actually very shocked to say these are pretty great!
I am not sure of the exact shades I have but they are stunningly gorgeous! One is a creme white shimmer, one is a light slightly purple pink shimmer, one is blue/green teal shimmer, and the last one looks like a dark dark purple in the bottle but comes off a navy blue with purple duo chrome when applied.
The formulation is great not to thick but not so runny, it is very very quick dry, I goes on a little streaky but only needs about two coats to be opaque so I can work with them.
The new packaging also looks more sleek and grown up then the previous NYC nail colors, which I personally like.
I plan to go pick up a few more shades, I just wish they had cremes and bright neons, they seem to be all shimmers to me.
Overall a great buy though!
I got this product in my recent 50% off E.L.F haul, and I've been using it everyday on my top lash line since.
For 3 dollars this is a great buy!
I have the black shade and when I first opened it I was very impressed with the packaging it looks sleek and professional plus you get a pretty decent amount of product.
After that I used a flat angled eyeliner brush just to swatch it on my hand, the line was smooth and very very black...After I gave it about a minute to dry (It's not exactly quick drying but that can be a good or bad thing) I rubbed it and it was set and would not rub off, I have washed my hands multiple times since then and it has faded a bit but it's still there. So it's very pigmented and long lasting!
On my eye it didn't flake or fade, it looked great from when I applied it at about 7 in the morning through the whole night.
I only bought one of these to try out but I am very very pleased and plan to purchase the other colors and a back up of the black!!
Lipstick -New York Color - Ultra Moist Wear Chiffon
BellaGlam 7/1/2010 2:47:00 AM
This lipstick is worth every cent of the like 99 cents I payed for it.
It's not to pigmented and it's a little frosty but not in like a yucky porn star way, but it is such a pretty color to wear over a nude lipstick to make the perfect shimmery baby pink lip.
I have two and when I run out I will for sure repurchase!
I hated this mascara!
It smelled weird, the brush was okay but it was flimsy and bendy on the wand making it hard to get a good application...produced spidery clumpy lashes : (
I love baby lotion, I always keep some in my bag!
My skin sometimes breaks out from heavy lotion & I have a small patch of chicken skin on my arms by my elbows so I use baby lotion on it because It's gentle and not too heavy but soooo moisturizing.
I'm not crazy about the scent but it's not too unpleasant or unbearable and it's light so it can be covered up. I want to try the cucumber melon scent but I'm afraid the formulation will be a little different.
Overall I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a light non greasy feeling lotion that is very very moisturizing.
I have this in the shade Pink Chic, & I love it.
First of all the packaging is really cute I like the square shape and the metallic purple color with the crown a lot.
Great pigmentation, very moisturizing & won't settle into the lines on your lips and look strange, I'm not crazy about the smell but it's not unbearable.
Overall I really like these lipstick, I only picked up pink chic because it's the only color in my Walmart I liked but if I find more shades I like I will purchase more.
This is my everyday summer eyeliner. This is the best drugstore eyeliner in my opinion. I use it on my bottom and top waterline and it stays where I put it does not fade, lasts all day.
The only problem is it's not very black or creamy I have to drag it across a couple of times to make it as dark as I want, but for the long wear it's worth it to me.
This lip balm MUST have crack in it!!! Once I start putting this on I can't stop, I love it!
It's not too heavy and waxy, it leaves my lips very moisturized. I use this before I go to bed and in the morning before I do my foundation & other makeup and when I'm done my lips are ready for my favorite nude lipsticks...This is my HG lip balm.
I LOVE this product it was become a must in my daily routine! When I looked on the E.L.F. website I never considered ordering this product but my local grocery store now carries E.L.F and I saw this and I couldn't resist trying it for $2.99!
My skin is kind of strange, it's got a little redness and a little yellowness to it and I also have extremely dark circles : (
I use this product for so many things, I use a fluffy ES bush to apply the different color powders where I need correction...I use the green around my nose, I mix the yellow and pink to get a orange color to set my under eye, I use the blue to brighten the sallow yellow tones around my mouth. & also when I'm running really late sometime I just take a huge fluffy brush and apply this allover my face for an allover evenness.
I love this product and I have gone thorough two backups already. I highly recommend you at least give it a try for 3 bucks!
Blush -L'Oreal - True Match Superblendable Blush in Baby Blossom
BellaGlam 6/23/2010 12:06:00 AM
This blush was okay. I picked it up because it was the one that went with my powder True Match shade. I love the color in the pan, the extreme shimmer didn't bother me at all. It worked amazing on my skin tone and blended very nicely.
I just hate and can not get over the poor lasting power, even over a cream blush the fades and is completely gone by like noon...I was so disappointed, I'll use mine till it gone but I will not repurchase and I wouldn't recommend it : (
