Here are a couple of products that I’ve been loving recently! From left to right, firstly we have the Elf Powder Brush that I very recently got from iHerb after hearing all the hype about it. The hype is real, folks! It’s a fantastic brush! It’s soft, but what I like most about it is how much give the bristles have. It’s not that dense, so it moves product around amazingly. I use this for buffing in my foundation and I’ve simply been obsessed with it! Next is the Elf Maximum Coverage Concealer in the shade porcelain, which I also got recently from BeautyJoint. I was slightly worried the shade would be too light for me but it’s perfect! This concealer is exceptional for under-eyes and blemishes, the coverage is great! Also the formula is perfect, it blends easily and never goes cakey. I highly recommend it!

Next is the Elf Matte Lip Colour in natural, that I bought from Kmart a few months ago. My favourite way to wear this is over my NYX Wonder Pencil in light, which not only holds it in place for ages, but it also lightens the colour to a really pretty light, muted pink. I love it!! It’s also not drying and lasts for aaaaaages. Next we have the NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee, which I LOOOOVE. I also have Apple Strudel, which I love equally, but I’ve been using this shade more because it’s nice and neutral. Not only is the smell beautiful (it smells like brown sugar), but it goes on so smoothly and lasts for about 2 and a bit hours before it melts away. However, in that time the lip colour underneath has been preserved, so a quick re-application would fix it all up!

Lastly is the Jordana Blush in Touch of Pink, which I got in a $2 shop for $5. It’s absolutely amazing! Especially for the price! It’s pigmented, smooth, is easy to blend, and the colour is super pretty and wearable. I’m really impressed, and I kinda wanna get millions more shades. As you can see, I’ve been kinda dying over these products, most of which are Elf, which has definitely become one of my favourite brands! I LOVE EVERYTHING.

April BeautyJoint order

My BeautyJoint order arrived! I was so excited, mostly because I had bought my first ever false lashes! I’m really keen to use them sometime, but also a bit apprehensive cos I know I’m gonna suck at applying them for the first few times. Here’s what I got!

I got two of the NYX Butter Glosses, which I’ve heard everyone on YouTube and blogs rave about. I got Creme Brulee (a neutral pinky nude) and Apple Strudel (a muted pink). I can’t get over the smell of these. They smell like sugar! Not to mention the packaging is SUPER pretty and eye-catching. Next, as I mentioned before, I got two packs of false lashes. They’re the Cherry Blossom lashes in #01 and #82. #01 is shorter and denser than #82, but I really really like how #82 looks. I’ll definitely make a post on these once I’ve tried them out! And lastly, I got the Duo lash glue, which is a pretty well-known glue and I hear it’s really good. I’m so excited to use all these things, so there’ll be a few posts to come over the next few weeks!
