Elf Conditioning Lip Balm with Spf 15


I have this in nice & natural. While I was impressed with the pigmentation, scent, and packaging, I was slightly disappointed because the color did not suit me. The color looked like a promising nude-y pink but ended up leaving a whitish cast on my lips, giving me that dead look.


Pros: Pigmented, SPF 15, Coconut smell? Way better than the orange and grape smelling products!, Packaging, Price

Cons: Jar you have to dip into isn't always sanitary, Packaging is bulky

Here's a swatch:


And on my lips:


Although I can't wear nice & natural on it's own, I found it to be perfect for evening out my lip tone and canceling out the brown. So this has become my go to base prior to applying lipsticks and lip glosses.

  1. I hate when lip products give me that dead look. I have used things like that as a base as well. I think I will try one of their conditioning balms, just in a different colour.

  2. Hi Alicia,

    The balm is really good and im definitely interested in trying a different color. Im thinking Mellow Melon might be good for summer :)

Mini TJ Maxx Haul and Target Boots

TJ Maxx is my favorite store to shop at, since I love a good bargain . Brand name clothing, shoes, makeup, and housewares at awesome prices! I also love Target's clearance section which is where I picked up the boots. In addition to the boots, I also picked up two large lamp shades for $6 each!!

I love anything mint colored, and looking at this mug just made me happy! TJ Maxx $2.99
On my way to the register, I spotted the red mug with hearts and couldnt resist. TJ Maxx $3.99


I also have heard about being able to find theBalm products at TJ Maxx but most of them had missing items or were broken. I was finally able to find one that was intact. It comes with a bronzer that doubles as an eyeshadow, a blush, a lipgloss with SPF 17, and a mini kabuki brush. $9.99





Here are some swatches:

Betty-Lou Manizer is a bronzer which doubles as an eyeshadow. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. However, as a bronzer, there is fine glitter that is visible in the sun. I prefer matte bronzers. No…

Red Lipstick Collection

I have recently become obsessed with red lipstick. I love how it can add a pop of color to a simple look and make it look like you've made some effort.  Check out my latest YouTube video on my red lipsticks:
As promised here are some swatches:



What is Your Favorite Red Lipstick?

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Sultry and Standout

I was a good girl. I wanted to buy all of the Revlon Matte Balms but I held myself back. It took a lot of effort. I picked up the two shades I knew I would get a lot of wear from. These two shades are Sultry and Standout.

Sultry is a gorgeous pinky mauve. 

Standout is a gorgeous deep red.


I really think I might pick up some more. They go on smoothly without tugging. While these are matte, they are comfortable to wear since they are not as drying as most matte lipsticks can be. Until now, I really thought "matte balm" was an oxymoron, but Revlon has done it!
