E.l.f Haul and Essence mini Haul

Hello beauties!

How are you?

Here I come with another haul. I -again- bought some Elf goodies online (3rd time since January) and some Essence from Hondos Center.

(I couldn’t stop myself. They re-stocked items after a looooong time!)

(These will be the last for a period of time, since I m currently looking for a job (so I can have an income to.. spend). That’s why I only invested in cheaper but good cosmetics like Elf. Not that I won’t buy them later,too … High price doesn’t not always equal quality, neither the opposite. I m very please with almost all their products.)

So, here is what I got.

Let’s look them one by one, and I will also do some swatches/reviews for some, if you have a request, I would be happy to listen!

This is Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Luminance. Its a wonderful highlighter to use right above your cheekbones

It has shimmer in it, though its not visible in the photo.

This is lengthening & defining mascara in black. Pretty decent mascara for only 1.5 pounds

 

The following is one of the most popular items from Elf, the eyelid primer in sheer. Finally, found it available!!! YAY

 

This is an ELF lipstick in shade charming (I also got a Voodoo backup)

 

Here is the all-over cover stick in Apricot Beige (fair)

 

Here is the blush and bronzer compact kit

Mineral Booster in Sheer

 

And here is the eye-brow kit in dark (that I already LOOOOOOVE )

 

I also bought 2 brushes. The Studio powder brush and the smudge brush. The powder brush was a bit pressed in the package, so the shape is kinda squeezed and not round.

 

This is what I got from Elf.

Oh, and the eyelash curler

A bit of Essence now…..

A nail polish from marble mania collection. Rassberry swirl

Stay-all-day cream shadow in a bronze color

And last, an eyebrow kit which I bought to use their stencils. Lol

Well, that’s it! What do you think about my haul ? Have you got any of these products? Do you want to buy any of them? What’s your favorite?

Lots of love beauties.

February Goodies / hauls and presents.

Hello beauties,

Back to base, and hopefully I ll post more often now.

I want to post what I got for presents for my birthday, my Elf Haul and a palette that was in a magazine.

 ♥

Elf goodies

There was an 30% off, and I didn’t miss the chance to order them. I was going to anyway, using my free shipping code (by Fenzy app) , but that was even better.

The awesome moment when you open the box to get your goodies

And put them all together in front of you

More specifically I ordered the following — white a bit of comments (no reviews or swatches yet)

Eye Widener in White – Its not white, its pearly white. I wanted it to be matte white, but no harm,  its okay

Kabuki Brush – Love it

Blush Brush – Its for a friend, didn’t test it , but I am sure it rocks :p

All Over Color Stick in Pink lemonade – Nice, lovely color and great application

Lipstick in Voodoo – Beautiful color, I love the smell of the lipstick

clarifying pressed powder in Rosy Beige – I am the most dissapointed by that. Darker than it looks. But won’t go wasted, maybe I d use as a contour.

Tinted Moisuriser SPF 20 in Porcelain – Fits my skin nice, like it . (haven’t test it all over my face though)

luscious liquid lipstick in Ruby Slipper – I though I m gonna hate it , coz it has glitter (that is not visible in the site photos), but turned out to look very nice .

And day to night beauty on the go palette. – Beautiful pallete. I prefer the natural colors more.

Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 in Rosy beige – Not my color at all. Way more darker, and.. yellowish! I picked the rosy, to avoid yellow. :S This will go wasted. Can’t use it at all.

Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Precious Pink – Nice.

Studio Blush in Tickle Pink and Candid Coral – Love – love – love them ♥

 Presents.

20 something years ago, at 28th of February, a little girl was born…

This lil girl grow up, had many friends, and some of them that were in her hometown, got her some presents (all of them, shirts).

My lovely Katerina, got my this shirt. Its a lovely shade of green, sporty style, that will be great with sport trousers, or jeans and chucks.

My other lovely friend, and future sister in law (she is my brother’s amazing girlfriend) , Aphrodite , got me this cartoon shirt.

My love of cartoons is not a secret 🙂

Last but not least, my friends Artemis and Dimitra, got me another present, a pink shirt, with grey/pink animal prints as a stamp.

But I went and change the shirt. The shirt was amazing, the color was fantastic, but… I don’t wear extra small. Even though I d like to fit even in Small, I don’t.

My boobs were going to explode in there, and the belly was extra visible. Sorry girls for changing it, but there was no pink or other sizes in other colors of the same shirt available.

So I got this dress (its beige and BLUE in reality) and a pouch instead. I was so sad that couldn’t have the same they got me 😦

Magazine gift – Avon Pallete

My last new thing, was this palette from Avon (I think it was in Vogue gr)

And here is swatched in my arm. Its is supossed to be White – purple – grey and dark purple/greyish.

Needless to say that the dark purple is a fail, and looks like grey. The other are quite nice.

I will be back soon, swatching  – probably – the elf goodies 🙂

Lots of love babies

January Haul… almost!

Hello All!

Here are the last things I got…. Not exactly bought all of them, since 3 were presents…

3 Nyx Jumbo eye pencils, 1 eye primer from essence,  a clinique lipstick and a powder?(?) , 2 Nyx round lipsticks, 1 Nyx black label lipstick, a clarins lipstick and a Nyx cream blush…

More specifically…

Clinique whatever powder, at Peony. To be honest I m not sure if its a blush or a eyeshadow or both. I use it as eyeshadow,and it’s cute. Its was a gift in a Greek magazine, together with the lipstick.

Nyx’s cream blush in Golden .I  just tried a bit with a brush, that’s why the surface looks so mewahhhhh….

An eye-primer from essence… So cheap and cute … (haven’t tried it,yet)

 

Nyx round lipsticks in Iconic and Decadent.

Iconic is very similar to Minimalism and it’s a beautiful shade (I m gonna swatch soon). Decadent is my dissapointment. I wanted to order a dark cherry red, but turned out to be….very dark :S

Nyx Black Label in Bling. A very nicely MLBB color 🙂 Love it already ! (Gonna swatch it soon as well)

Clinique’s lipstick in Rosette. This was a full sized lipstick, the other gift from the magazine. The color is very nice BUT… have some gold shimmer in it. In the photo, is not very obvious but in reality it is. And doesn’t look good to my lips…

This is Clarins Jolie Rouge. Its not a full size one ( I guess), I was given that by a friend. Its a gorgeous bright red… which I haven’t tried.. And I am afraid to…

These are the infamous Nyx Jumbo eye pencils in (L-t-R) Yogurt, French Fries and Milk.

What do you think about these? Do you have any?

Sorry, this post might be boring , but I can’t do swatches atm. The weather is bad, so the lighting is unfair to the photos. Plus, I got a new camera and I haven’t learn to use it well yet.

Lots of love

V.
