Bright Green/Orange/Pink/Yellow Eyeshadow Look

Nothing special really. This was just a test to see how well the brows would come out. It was a task as  have thick strand brows. sigh...  shall try again.

Citrus Punch Is what I call it.
Products used:

  • 120 eyeshadow palette
  • Elf eyeshadow primer
  • Beauty Treats black liquid eyeliner
  • Black pencil liner
  • Black mascara 
For the eyebrows I based it with eyeshadow primer and just lightly layered on the shadow using an angled liner brush.

ELF Studio Blush Review and Swatches

Ok so this has to be my fave product from my haul, simply because I am in love with blush.

The box says:

  • The soft sheer texture blends into the skin for a silky finish.
  • Designed to be worn alone or layered for more depth.
  • Highlight your complexion with a subtle healthy glow.

So!!! Although they did say it gives a "subtle healthy glow", I was expecting a bit more pizzaz. It really does go on very sheer, so to get more impact you may have to layer it on like they stated. I do still love the shades and I have not yet tried them on with full makeup, so look out for an edit on this post.
For my ladies who are looking for dark and strongly pigmented shades, these are not for you.

Ok so I tried a couple of them on and I have to say...amazing. They look so natural and they are more pigmented when applied to a face with foundation on. Of course like I said u have to layer it to get more impact. All in all, while I love NARS, I think I have found a new best friend. You can't go wrong for the price so go get them ALL!!!!

  1. Twinkle Pink
  2. Mellow Mauve
  3. Blushing Rose
  4. Peachy Keen
  5. Berry merry
  6. Giddy Gold
  7. Candid Coral
  8. Fushia Fusion
  9. Pink Passion

ELF Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review and Swatches

SPF 15 - Oil Free

I used the Almond and it matched my complexion. You'll get medium coverage so if you have blemishes, you're gonna be needing some concealer. 
It does give you a nice smooth finish, howeverrrrrrrrr for my ladies in the tropics, it was very hot today so of course I was sweating and this did not hold up at all. It began to kinda run, and so before I could leave my house...yes I hadn't left yet, I had to switch to my regular foundation.
For those of you who experience winter, I guess it's wearable but I would not suggest use in the summer.

ELF Studio Cream Eyeliner Review and Swatches

Lines and defines your eyes.
Creates smooth lines that are defined and precise.

  • Smudge-proof
  • Budge-proof
  • Water-resistant coverage

So basically, I am in LOVE with this product. I have the black and it goes on smoothly. It takes some practice to achieve a very neat line though. 
I'm one of those girls who forget they have eye makeup on and rub my eyes, but sometimes I go with just liner and mascara and I can guarantee that after rubbing my eyes my liner stays put, so they didn't lie by saying so.
It also stayed on after about 4 hours of me being in the water, so you can definitely wear it to the beach for you beach glam ladies.

Rating: 4.5/5

Edited: These dry out really easily, so please keep stored in a cool place. I learnt this the hard way.

Kinda Mega E.L.F Haul
