It’s In My Bag Now: ELF Beauty Book Cool Collection

So my bag usually has a ton load of stuff in it and never enough room (remind me to check out the kangaroo keeper) so I never want to add any more bulky items to it but I really needed a small makeup palette. Along came the beauty book. It has 28 eyeshadows and 20 lip colours. The magnetic strip that allows it to close like a book is great, but just for safety when it’s in the bottom of my bag I add a cute hair band to ensure it doesn’t open. These eyeshadows are a mixture of semi-matte, and shimmery colours. To prevent eyeshadow particles from sticking to your lippie colours just add a small piece of tissue to separate the two sections when closed.  The only downside is no browns for neutral looks so I am still on the lookout for a palette for suffice all my needs. In case you’re wondering there is a warm collection beauty book with browns but I wasn’t impressed with the eyeshadow colour variations in this one.
For the lip colours you have some that has the sheer colour payoff of a lipgloss and the dark colours with a bit more pigmentation of a lipstick. I tend to reach for the medium pinks in the book.
Do I like it, love it, leave it or it’s just OK: Verdict- I love it!  Super great for work and play, hardly takes up any space in your handbag. I take it everywhere I go.  Even my coworkers want to get this.
Price & Where to get this??? ELF website for 5US$ or Magical Makeup in Trincity Mall for TT$60. You may want to also check out the ELF cosmetics Trinidad group on FB. Happy Shopping Dolls!

But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass.
