Elf Haul!

I hadn't been by Elf's website in a while, so I stopped by and ended up ordering some stuff. 
They always have deals and coupon codes. You usually can always get something free or pay no shipping. It's pretty cool. 

Elf has a abundance of ranges, their $1.00 range and their $3.00 studio line, their $5.00 mineral range, and they of course have more expensive (but still cheap!) products as well. 

$5.00 Mineral Lipsticks in Natural Nymph - a nude color
and Rich Raspberry - a deep raspberry color. 

my dad was cleaning his fan, so it became part of the background lol. 

Rich Raspberry on top and Natural Nymph on bottom.

$3.00 Studio Line Cream Eyeliner in Teal Tease 
and Punk Purple.

I've noticed that I had to build but Punk Purple to be truly opaque, 
Teal Tease wasn't so thin and didn't have to be built up.

Translucent Matifying Powder $3.00 Studio Line.

This powder is definitely matifying(which is not a real word btw), but it breaks apart so easily, 
my compact is covered in powder. 

Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
$3.00 Studio Line.

These don't have names, but the blush is a is peach with gold shimmer  
the bronzer is a light brown with gold shimmer

Yes that is my shopping list :)

You can see the gold shimmer here.

$3.00 Studio Line Blush in Candid Coral

Coral/Peach color with golden shimmer

$3.00(now on sale for $2.25) Essential Beauty School 
Blush & Bronzer Palette. 

Blushes: A pale pink with no shimmer and a deep pink with silver glitter

Bronzers: A light tan with silver shimmer and a 
deep brown with silver shimmer. 

This was my freebie, It is a $1.00 Hypershine Lipgloss in Berry Cherry.

I didn't think I was going to like this color, but I really did It goes on well and isn't tacky at all. 

On a side note, the only thing containing parabens was the the Hypershine Lipgloss.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

China Glaze Haunting 2011

Here are my swatches for China Glaze's Haunting Collection. This is their Halloween(if you couldn't tell  by the name :) ) collection for 2011. 

It's Alive : An olive/dark green base with green micro glitter and small light green hexagonal glitters. 

I love this color! I love the way it looks on me and the how it looks in the sun. This was opaque in two coats.

Near Dark: a khaki/olive green jelly. This was opaque in two coats. 

I know you like that balding :D I was in a rush, lol. 

Haunting: A dark charcoal base with tons and tons and tons of silver micro shimmer. 

I can't decide if this is or It's Alive is the star of this collection.. They will be co-stars :) I like them both so very much. 

Crimson: A rich plum jelly. This was opaque in two coats. 

I really enjoyed this color, I can see myself reaching for this all fall long. 

I did not picture Ghoulish Glow.. simply because I could not get it dark enough and then my camera was like.. uhmm NO! :) 

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great Monday!

White Nails.. Love it!

So besides a french tipping polish, I've never owned a white polish. I've been seeing lots of white nails lately and I really wanted to try it!

Here I used two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On and
two coats of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Ice Queen.
How about that dog hair on my index finger? :)

 Ice Queen is a clear base with silver micro glitter and small hexagonal 
purple, blue, and pink holographic glitters.

The shimmer was just the right amount. I know a lot of people don't, but I like the look of sparse big glitter, but even I was left wanting more hexagonal pieces.

I really liked this and actually wore it for four days. It was pretty stark and ended up pretty beautiful! Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you have a fantastic day!
