Has anyone tried ELF's mineral shadow line? What are your thoughts?
Posted using ShareThis
Corsets are so hot. I want this one really badly!! It's so cute and has the sexy vintage vibe. It's adorable but do you think it's almost a little too much?
I wouldn't pair this with any other frilly, or lacey item. I would pair it with a simple bottom, so the outfit as a whole is not distracting...or fighting amongst itself for your attention.
I'm holding off on purchasing this item...for now.

My mom is also very prone to cold sores and she also tried Abreva. She was also very amazed with the medicine. I bought it today and I'm hoping it works it's wonderful miracle on me again.
The consistency of the ointment is kinda like...Neosporin. However, it is not as thick as Neosporin.When I applied it to my lips I can "feel" it working. At first it tingles for a bit but soon dies down. This does not feel like a lip plumper at all! Don't be scared. I know some people hate the feeling of plumpers. This just tingles for a second or two and it's done.
It's an over the counter medicine, so you can find it just about anywhere. The only thing that stinks about Abreva is the price. It's pricey! The tube pictured above (the one I got) is around $16 dollars. The small squeezey tube is about $14 dollars.
I hope this was helpful to someone. Fight the cold sores!

Last week I did a video on "A Guide to ELF" the video was about what items I would recommend from eyeslipsface.com I was brutally honest and in one clip of the video, I even said "the rest of the brushes stink." I was referring to the dollar line brushes. I'm still content with the video and everything I said...I was just super suprised that ELF themselves contacted me! SAY WHAT? They were happy with my review and looked forward to seeing another. They even gave me a $5 dollar "gift card" as a thank you.
This may not seem that big to you but to me it's HUUUGE! ELF saw my video! It's so unbelievable. I didn't make my video for them, or intend to have them as my audience but getting their attention is pretty cool.
Although I was given some ELF cash, it doesn't mean I will become their video slave. Don't worry, my opinion and thoughts will always remain true. Unless I get bought out for 5 billion dollars. I don't think I see that happening...ever. haha.
On a more honest note. I know there is a lot of "hush hush" talk with gurus on YouTube that are sent items or paid, from companies. I don't think it's a big deal unless you are recommending something terrible or just plain lying. If you think about it...that's how commercials and advertisements work. Celebrities do it, all the time. Most people don't even think twice about a product when celebrity endorsement is involved. I think YouTube advertising is great, it's free for most companies and it really gets their name out. Plus, we as consumers find out about great companies. It's pretty much a win-win.
Some people get really mad at YouTube Gurus for promoting certain brands or companies. Personally, I'm okay with it. I think it's a bit annoying if that ALL they do in their videos. Many people also hold the gurus responsible if their product doesn't work out. I just want to simply state that free will is a powerful tool. The guru's did not twist your arm, and demand that you buy that product. That was all free will! It's also important to note that everyone has a personal taste and preference. Just because you like the color pink, doesn't mean I will like the color pink. It's a simple human concept.
What are you throughts on YouTube advertising and guru promotions?

I am so upset with Mac! This collection is to die for. It's so me! I love the packaging and the colors and everything. I was already swearing to save $20 bucks just to buy one item when I realized they are selling their lipsticks for $22 dollars!! WHAT? Did I miss something or did the price go up? What happened to $14.50? I don't care if it's a special collection or not, this is just a plain rip off. I can't believe it. The sad thing is that tons of girls will not think twice about spending that amount.
Am I the only sane girl who believes $14 dollars for a lipstick/lipglass is too much?

Too Faced collection "French and Fabulous." french & fab I'm a sucker for anything related to Marie Antoinette. I think that's who they based the collection off. The packaging is gorgeous. The makeup itself is also cute but I have colors already similar so I won't be buying..at least not full price. This palette retails for $28.50 which is a bit too much for my poor butt. Damn, Too Faced and their regal prices.

Back to topic: I was surfing Ashley's YT Channel when I found her video on Detrivore Cosmetics. I fell in love! The colors were beautiful and best of all the price was up my alley! Lexy approves: $3.00 eyeshadows. Yaaaaaaaaay! Did I mention that I also received free shipping? Free shipping without any codes? I am in heaven at the moment.
I ordered 7 full eyeshadows and one sample. I'm very happy and I hope to be even happier when my items arrive. I'll update you when my stuff arrives to it's anxious owner. The link is below if you are interested.

So to add to this Alice hype I want to introduce "Looking Glass Wars" by Frank Beddor. It's a book about Alice in Wonderland...but not the same story. This book offers a different and creative view on the beloved story.
"The Looking Glass Wars is a novel written by Frank Beddor. Inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, it claims that those two books were nothing but lies and that this is the true story. It features twists on the original story, such as the white rabbit
actually being Alyss's (Alice's) tutor, Bibwit Harte, and that the Mad
Hatter is actually a very agile, sober bodyguard named Hatter
Madigan"--Taken from Wiki
Alice is a princess in Wonderland. Redd,
her aunt wants to take over the land. Alice flees the land and ends up on
on our world. In our world, everyone believes she is crazy because of her
Wonderland stories. Everyone besides....the reverend. He writes a
book based on her travels. Alice realizes he has distorted her story and
she gets very angry. Meanwhile...in Wonderland there is a revolution
There is sooo much more going on but..I would be giving away the story.
I have never read/watched Alice but I know enough about the plot to find this book interesting. It's an easy and fun read. This book will keep you hanging and wanting to know more. I'm very happy to have found it. So jump on the Alice bandwagon and read this book!

I recently purchased some soaps from this company. I am completely, madly in love with their Oatmeal, milk, and honey soap. I don't even like the smell of honey and I'm in love with this soap. It's such a seductive scent, it lingers, and it just a tad bit sweet. It's the perfect blend.
It lathers very nicely, and I think it's a decent size soap. This soap exfoliates but it's not rough on your skin. It's pretty gentle. I like that it has just the right amount oatmeal. Unlike other exfoliating soaps packed with things such as oatmeal or porridge, this soap won't create a mess in the tub. As I mentioned, it has the right amount of oatmeal.
The owner uses many different oils in her soaps. She uses olive oil, palm oil, castor oil, coconut oil, rice brain oil, and shea butter. All of which have great benefits for your skin. For more information regarding the oils & ingredients visit the owner's website.
I'm also very proud to have found this soap IN PERSON! I was visiting a small town in MD when I stumbled upon this wonderful scented soap in a book store. How random.
My description of the scents:
Lavender & Vanilla--obviously it smells like these 2 scents. It's a great blend. It's sweet but not so sweet, that it's obnoxious. Very soothing.
Oatmeal... --Smells seductive. You can trace the honey & milk. It's very suave, refreshing and calming.
Soaps are a decent price. They are well made with great ingredients.
I will be buying more soap from this company. Their Oatmeal, Milk & Honey stole my heart.
