Natural nymph It is not that creamy to me. My natural nymph packaging is sort of messed up. When I first got it it was just fine but after a while it locked at a certain point so the tip of my lipstick got crushed. Colourwise, pale pale colour. Very nude lip colour with pink undertones. I find it looking drying on lips without any lipgloss on. I would not wear it on its own but conceals pigmented lips very well and looks gorgeous when paired with an appropriate lipgloss.



Runway pink is pretty gorgeous colour and is not bright. I find this more wearable than elf natural nymph and is not bright, it is more of a pink nude lip colour. Very pigmented.

Inspired by the amazing youtube guru Rosebud143 [CHANNEL HERE], I decided to give false lashes a go about 2 years ago and I just wanted to share with you this bad experience of mine. So I went to the phramacists/ drugstore and asked her for a pair of falsies. She showed me some pairs from ArtDeco, which, were nothing special to be honest. I asked her for some glue to actually glue them to my eye. This is the funny part, which was not so funny at the time A. She did not tell me they actually come with a glue. B. She gave me a PERMANENT glue. AND it took me a while to realise it was permanent. Fail Result: several eye watering experiences messing up my whole make up just to glue them against my eye, painful methods to take them off and having a 2 cm piece of fake lashes stuck to my eye for 3 weeks. Yup. I've been there. PS. If that ever happe…

MY FAVOURITE NUDE LIP COMBO:


NYX orange soda +ELF mineral lipstick in runway pink
This is my fav nude lip ever. I mean I wouldn't wear something like nyx orange soda on its own. Or ELF natural nymph on its own. But this lip combo is so wearable, I even wear it during the day. It's like a peachy pink perfect not dead looking nude lip.

ELF REVIEW: studio cream liner in black

Image
I have been using this one for a while, it's so amazingly easy to work with and it's really black. It takes a while to set, so avoid curling your lashes just after application, because it will transfer. What I do, is wait for it to set by putting on my blush, bronzer and contour. By the time I finish them, it's all set and done. Once it sets, it becomes transfer proof and water resistant too. It lasts all day. If you want to speed up the setting of this cream liner, dab some black powder eyeshadow with the angled brush it comes with. At first, I applied this with the brush it comes with. Now I use a thin art brush to apply it, makes it much much easier. I don't think I'll ever go back to my liquid liner ever since I got this.




P.S. The product may seem a litle dry at first but with the brush it loosens.




Do I recommend?: YES!!

Will I repurchase? Most definitely – but the product lasts for a very very long time.

ELF REVIEW: Eye Primer and Liner Sealer

Image
ELF  Eye Primer and Liner Sealer €4.00 / £3.50

Primer: Does not smell nice – does not smell bad – cosmetic smell. I used to use a creamy textured concealer as a base for my eyeshadow. I also used to use a shimmer stick. But this, I find it works best because of its sticky texture making it easy for your eyeshadows to stick on your eyelids. It makes it easy to blend eyeshadows together. It is yellowish in colour and tends to brighten up your eyeshadows more than if shadow is applied on its own. It lasts a long time too. It is very easy to apply but I prefer the ELF mineral eyeshadow primer though.



Liner Sealer: The liner is amazing. I read online that you can turn your eyeshadows into liner by just wetting an angled brush and dipping it into the liner. Does not work. This baby is amazing though. I used a cheap eyeshadow, and it turned it into a bright liquidy eyeliner. Amazing. The brush is a bit weird to me, it's stiff as a rock, I tried loosening it with the make up remover but…

NYX REVIEW: single eyeshadows [with swatches]

Image
Nyx pressed single eyeshadow


The cryptonite shade came broken packaging wise, but I glued it back and the actual product was not damaged. These are smaller than the nyx blushes if you happen to have them.


Cryptonite: a charcoal coloured eyeshadow with lots of silver glitter. It looks gorgeous with smokey eyes. The colour payoff is really great and I love the silky consistency of this eyeshadow. If you happen to own a nyx blush, I find that the texture is very similar, however, much more pigmented. I wouldn't recommend this colour for everyday wear, it is more of a much more glamorous colour.




Dark brown: A perfect crease colour. I wouldn't call it a dark brown, it is more of a medium brown more than anything. Good for everyday wear. Great texture. Easy to blend. You can definitely use this colour to fill in your brows because it is matte and I have used this to contour too, but you have to use a light hand because of its pigmentation
Side Note: all swatches were not paired wit…

HAUL: cheap camouflage concealer palette

Image
Hello guys, I have another haul for you today.


So I was always interested in buying several concealers, and its super awesome to have them all in one palette. Plus. It's super cheap. I am basically convinced that this is identical to that of coastal scents without a logo. Because coastal scents get their products from Hong Kong, they just basically enhance the packaging of the original version, either by just putting logos or whatever and advertise the products as their own. They sell their products for much more than the hong kong sellers on ebay. At least that is what I believe.






Why would you need GREEN concealer?
to conceal redness including acne, blemishes, zits or red patches on your skin.

What about YELLOW concealer ?
to conceal blueish areas on your skin including dark under eye circles or bruises.

And LAVENDER concealer?
to conceal yellow tones on your face including yellow bruises or skin imperfections


When you camouflage your skin with green, yellow or lavender conceale…

HAUL: kabuki brush with pouch

Image
This is my ebay haul for today. I wanted a cheap buffer brush to blend my blush, bronzer and highlighter together. I already had the elf kabuki, but that I find, is best to be used with face powders etc because of its density.

Now this one is slightly smaller in size and even the actual diameter of the brush, is definitely smaller. It comes with a faux leather pouch and the both the kabuki that comes with it, and also the elf face kabuki fits perfectly and does not damage the brush. I love the plastic packaging it comes with, it retain the original size of the brush and you can also use it when travelling. The actual brush is super soft, but not as soft as elf kabuki face brush.

I honestly was very much surprised with how fast the item came to me, within 6 days of payment, I got the item from Hong Kong all the way to Malta. I usually have to wait for like 2 months to get my item from Hong Kong. Pretty impressive right?

As soon as I got it, it started shedding a bit, but when I used…

Pink Gel nails feat. ELF nail polish & ebay nail stickers

Image
I done my nails yesterday. These are gel nails with nail art that you too can easily pull off. Keep reading to find out how.



I applied two coats of ELF nail polish in Gum Pink.






Then, I applied a thin layer of top coat and stippled on the area with the top coat brush to remove any area that got stuck in it.


So Here's the result guys :)



Hope you liked them  :)
I bought the nail art stickers from  HERE.
You can buy ELF nail polish HERE[US] and HERE[UK].
