elf Haul - 50% off Studio Line

For the people that don't get emails from elf, there was a 50% off studio line making almost everything $1.50. I only order things from elf when there's that sale because when everything is priced at $3 it can add up. This whole haul includes my mom and sister too. I think it was a perfect time to stock up on brushes I've always wanted to try. elf is great for beginners but also it's a deal for some pretty good quality brushes! 

The only thing I'm disappointed in was that the powder brush changed completely! The handle is a lot shorter which isn't that big of a deal but a lot of shedding happened to one of them and the bristles feel different to the previous brush I bought back in November. I also purchased the new baked eye shadows which are very impressive for $1.50! 

I love sales but I hate shipping costs.

New Blog Layout!

I decided to change my layout to a more user friendly as this one does not hide links and such. I really liked the newer layouts Blogger came out with since it was effortlessly easy but it took me a while to navigate around especially with labels and followers! I really like minimal designs but the pop of pink pleases me. This layout is from Pugly Pixels

Mini Lush Haul but not really a haul

 So today I went to the mall with my Mom and I stopped by Lush and decided to get the larger version of Tea Tree Water which I'm a big fan of. Also, I got the Lush Fresh Mask in Cupcake. I like it better than Cosmetic Warrior and I will put up a review later since I have already tried it out. My Lush Collection is growing and the only thing I regret is not trying out their products before.

Lush Fresh Face Mask Cosmetic Warrior Review

This is my 2nd fresh face mask that i tried! I didn't review Cupcake but it was nice and it smelled good. I really like Cosmetic Warrior because i felt like it helped with my breakouts especially with it's tree tea oil. I don't know how i feel about the garlic but if it works it works. The smell isn't the best but it's doable. It smells like tea tree with a hint of garlic. You can only buy fresh face masks in store because it must be refrigerated. They all go for $6.95 which is a bargin for how much is in a 2oz pot. These containers are part of the 5 pots for one free fresh face mask so do not throw away your pots! I usually cannot finish these in the 3 week time period comfortably. Last time i slathered the remaining amount and it was not fun.

If you have a Lush nearby i suggest trying out a fresh face mask that fits your skin! It would be great for a girls night in.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Review

So i really really wanted to try this moisturizer out and it's a dream. For something more on the highend side of moisturizers it's not too expensive. I got the 2 oz size since I'm not interested in dipping my fingers into a jar since i have long nails. The formula is not greasy and you can feel the moisture right away. It blends into your skin easily and you can use it anywhere not just your face! I tried to look for this a couple of weeks ago but the Sephora lady had no clue that it was in the beauty to go section and told me they don't sell it... so always ask another if you find it on the site and it's item thing. I will use this at night since there is NO SPF. make sure to use a sunscreen if you're going to wear it during the day time. The 2 oz retails for $12 and the 6 oz retails for $28. When i run out i will most likely get the larger one but probably transfer it into another squeeze tube bottle.
