I love e.l.f. makeup. While some of the products are hit or miss, there are some really great gems in all of the lines! Some of the products are still in the package because it came in two orders Mineral Foundation (Light): I currently use BareMinerals, so when I saw this I wanted to give it a try. I’ll review it and do a thorough comparison to BareMinerals later. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer (Blush): I wanted an inexpensive primer because I use a one even when I don’t wear eyeshadow (I have oily lids and don’t want my mascara to smudge). This color is not how it is pictured on the website but I still like it. Studio Hydrating Under Eye Primer: This product looked very intriguing. The photo reminded me of my Benefit…

My wish list is always a little ambitious, but a girl can dream, right? Here are some things I have my eye on for the Spring! 1. Too Faced A La Mode Eyes: This eye shadow palette is a part of the Too Faced summer line and I am in LOVE with these colors. They look absolutely gorgeous and overall seems to have good reviews so far. Plus, I love the Parisian, nautical theme! 2. Too Faced Melted: These “liquified long wear lipsticks” look amazing and super vibrant! I have my eye set on Peony and Coral. Right now, Too Faced is having a giveaway where you can win the Melted collection AND a matching bathing suit for each color from L*Space! Like Too Faced on Facebook and use this link…

I’m hoping to cross a few things off my bucket list this summer. Here’s what I have so far: Graduate High School Graduate College Dance like in an old black and white film Take a hot air balloon ride Go to a ball. Better yet, a masquerade Make sushi Skydive Swim in a waterfall Read as many books as possible (a hard one to quantify) Be in a college marching band Order a coffee in France in French Ditch school Make a mistake. Then, move on Color my hair Try something you’ve wanted to do but never have Star gaze. Then watch the sunrise. Preferably with wonderful people Run a half marathon (I’m a realist…a full one is a stretch) Have the kind of night you…

I have been a loyal Benebabe since my first benefit purchase. I was in my early teens when I developed an interest in experimenting with makeup. I used a tinted moisturizer but wanted a little something extra to help perfect my skin. In Ulta my search quickly became overwhelming due to my lack of knowledge about the rows of numerous face products. My mom, who is not a huge makeup person, didn’t know where to guide me exactly either. We walked down the block to the new Benefit store, and I fell in love. The woman at the counter was helpful, sat me down, and went over all of my options with me. I settled on the Some Kind-a Gorgeous Foundation Faker (great compact – cream to…

Remember when you were so excited that you were finally going to be 10? In the weeks leading up to my birthday, my sister called me a double-digit-midget. I didn’t mind the nickname because it still implied that I would finally have a decade of life under my belt. I wasn’t going to complain about earning that title. Turning 10 was hardly revolutionary but then again, everything seems more exciting when you have a youthful lens on life. It was three long years from here until another milestone came (unless it was your golden birthday in-between) and the promise of becoming a teenager brought new hopes and dreams. Then permits, drivers licenses, and lastly, being an adult! Don’t wish it by! They whispered, but no…
