Today I decided to give my eyes a 'spring look' by using the NYC Upper Zest Side eyeshadow duo I got on sale for $.75 at CVS. This is a matte yellow and orange eyeshadow, that is VERY bright.
I was a lil skeptical that a $.75 eyeshadow duo would have enough pigment and staying power, but when used with NYX jumbo pencil in Milk, it stays on for a very long time! If you like this look I totally suggest you buy these colors... It's great for spring/summer!
Heres what I used to achieve this look:
Eyelid: NYX Jumbo Eyeliner Pencil (MILK 604) to prime the lid
NYC City Duet Eye shadows (UPPER ZEST SIDE 810B)
Liner: NYX Super FAT Eye Marker (CARBON BLACK)
Lash: MAYBELLINE Pulse Perfection Mascara
Most of the products used in the look above can be found on the following websites:

So last night I went to Dollar Tree to pick up some modeling clay, and came across the makeup isle which was full of ELF makeup! What I got: Minty Lip Gloss - New York City $1 Minty Lip Gloss - San Diego $1 Studio Single Eyeshadow - Charcoal $1 Studio Single Eyeshadow - Pebble $1 Studio Single Eyeshadow - Saddle $1 Studio Single Eyeshadow - Mystic Moss $1 Studio Single Eyeshadow - Wild Wheat $1 Studio Single Eyeshadow - Amethyst $1
Studio Single Eyeshadow - Butter Cream $1
The Minty Lip Gloss - Nice packaging. Love the minty scent and taste. Has a little sparkle to it, but not too much. Doesn't have crazy pigmentation or anything. Great to add on top of the tinted lipstick.
The Studio Single Eyeshadow - The packaging is nice, and has a little window so you can see the color. I love how pigmented they are! I don't have a problem with fallout, and for $1 there is PLENTY of product in here. Overall these are great shadows for a great price, I just wish they had more colors! :)
Hey Everyone! I absolutely LOVE the OPI Katy Perry Black Shatter nail polish!
The brush is nice and thick so it covers the nail well. The overall shatter effect adds a lil somethin somethin to an ordinary light-colored nail polish. Every nail is unique and bold... and all it takes is a couple of swipes!
I've tried a bunch of colors underneath the Black Shatter, but my fav is the one pictured below. It gave it a marble look.
How I did this...
I first applied Sally Hansen "Pure White"
(let dry completely)
Then I applied Sinful Colors "All about you" (gold sparkle)
(let dry completely)
Then applied one coat of OPI Black Shatter...

Hey Everyone! This is my FIRST blog! I decided that I would do a review on the makeup I bought yesterday. I bought 4 new products from ELF (Eyes Lip Face). Luckily I don't have to order E.L.F online, and they have almost all of the products at a local TARGET and KMART.
I'm a big fan of their new STUDIO Line, and their prices are great! Everything is mostly $3 or $5. In my opinion this is good quality makeup. I also love the packaging, very professional looking!
I've been looking for a new eye primer, so today I picked their Eye Primer + Liner Sealer for only $3! This works GREAT! It comes with two sides, PRIMER and SEALER. I really like BOTH sides of this. Primer- No creasing whatsoever. Holds eyeshadow in place. Sealer-
It transforms your eyeshadow into a waterproof liquid eyeliner, which is really cool. :)
GLOSSY GLOSS - Pink Salmon. $3 You can never have enough lip gloss!
I was surprised to read on the package "has no sparkle". It's hard to find a colored lip gloss that has no glitter or sparkle, etc. It is a beautiful clearish-salmon pink color and adds a nice shine to the lip without being too much. I also love the applicator (small brush), rather than the sponge which you'd have to pump a few times just to get some color out. It works great, and $3 lip gloss makes me smile! :D CREAM EYESHADOW - Dawn. $3
This is a smooth cream eyeshadow, that you can use to contour and line your eyes. It is really pigmented, which is always a plus! This also works great as an eyeshadow primer!
CREAM EYELINER - Ivory. $3
I love this eyeliner! It also comes with a small brush, which is really soft. This is a well pigmented liner and creamy. It goes on smoothly, and smudge proof once FULLY dry! This can also be used as a base, and highlighter. I plan on buying all of the colors!
I hope you found this review helpful!
