Spring Blooms New Makeup

From Nude to Pink to Red

Lip palette & brush is atop the hot pink pouch and is open displaying the 6 shades Today was such a lovely spring day made all the more beautiful with the arrival of my latest cosmetics purchase. In the famous words of the Pointer Sisters—I’m so excited!!

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been updating my makeup arsenal for spring/summer 2017. One of the things on my list were new lip colors and thanks to a video I saw on Instagram I went with the Mis Amores Lip Palette created by makeup artist and blogger, Iris Beilin, exclusively at e.l.f. Cosmetics.

Collage of the different products mentioned in the post.The six vibrant shades offer me a nice selection and with the purchase of the palette, I got a hot pink pouch which will come in handy as a makeup bag. Cruelty-free with zero animal testing is one of the best features of e.l.f. products. However, I recommend checking them on Beautypedia, a skincare and makeup review site, who base their reviews on published medical and scientific research for details on specific products.

Along with the lip palette, I got a new lip and brow brushes, eyebrow stencils and, heaven help me, false eyelashes. I’m quite confident in using everything except the eyelashes because every time I try to put them on I just can’t seem to get the placement right but “nothing beats a failure but a try.”

What I Bought:

Have an outstanding week!!

    1. Hey Hari!! How are you??? I’ve got to pop over to your place. The stencils are awesome but sometimes my eyebrows are a little askew because I didn’t line them up properly but life is too short to sweat it.

    1. Hi Peta. One of the reasons I like Beautypedia so much is their comprehensive reviews which in addition to providing the ingredients and their effectiveness also indicates whether cosmetics are cruelty free or do animal testing. Having makeup arrive on the doorstep is the best!😄


    1. Hahaha! I’m not laughing at you but with you because you and I are in this together. I wish I had some tips because I’ve been having the same issue and the moment I seem to get it close to the lash line it ends up on my cheek. One IG follower told me once to use both hands to apply them. I was trying with tweezers thinking it would be easier. I’ll follow up with you to let you know how it’s coming along.

    1. I always feel like a little kid when I get a package in the mail. Even a padded envelope can sometimes do the trick because my mind is telling me “goodies” but on opening it something boring like some literature an a flash drive.
