e.l.f. – Trying new products

Hi guys

today my newest purchase arrived. Some wild mixes up stuff. Just looked for the colors. Lately I am obsessed with pink and I don´t know why. It could be of the upcoming summer and all the feelings that come with it.

I deciced to get 2 new nail polishes in muted colors. One is in “dessert haze”, a light grey and beige tone. The other one is in “champagne” , a kind of coraly orange with a . Haven´t tried them yet. Still wearing the bright pink from Avon. It lasts too long. 🙂

I also got 2 lipsticks from e.l.f in “charming” a lighter rose color and “sociable” a bright and shiny pink. They are shiny lipsticks but not sparkly.  In my opinion the lips stay hydrated. The color does not last so long  (in comparison to other brands) but it is still okay for the price. And “important” it does not have the cheap smell anymore.

Next product is a bronzer in the color “golden”it is the lighter one. it is split in 4 colors, all shimmery nudes and light browns with golden sparkles in it. It is very nice for highlighting. if you have very pale skin like me it is great to use it know for highlighting or as a blush.  I like how it changes colors by every use. 

The last one is  a small jar with powder in it. It is called the High Definition Undereye Setting Powder. Kind of a magic item for tired mornings and days or for long evenings. Maybe it is the pendant to the dark circle erasers or the under eye roll-ons. it comes with a small brush but this one is really crap. Way to hard and stiff for under eye area.

So after this quick review about e.l.f. cosmetics I am really surprised. I have waited a couple year to set a new order because the packaging has changed completely. And I think the quality is also much better than a few years ago. 

Maybe I am going to get some new different stuff from their website but first I want to try some other things.

So take care and see you soon.

Avon Cosmetics #2 Trying some new stuff

HI Guys 
latest Avon order just arrived. I unpacked it almost immidiately. So keep reading if you are interested.

First of all I have to talk about the avon senses romantic garden of eden shower gel. the smell is incredible. I am really looking forward to shower all day long now 🙂 It is a big bottle with a pump and I think it is made to last a long time but in my case I think it doesn´t.  The smell is flowery and fresh. I also have the matching after shower mist but I think it is more a lotion than a mist. It has the same smell and is also absolutely great. The skin stays hydrated and it gets very soft. The smell lasts a long time.

Now we are heading over to make up products.
I got a new foundation. The Avon ideal flawless foundation. It is a cream / powder foundation. The coverage is good. If you don´t want to you don´t even have to wear a powder. It stays matte for several hours which is very good for me because I have oily skin. It may stay a lot longer matte if you have normal or dry skin.
In their catalog they have a chart with all their make up on one side and all skin types on the other. This is like a guide which foundation is best for you. I think that this is a great idea. It helps you to find the perfect one. You can also order small samples of the colors to find a matching one.

Now we are coming to the cutest thing I have seen in a long time. A lipgloss pot. The diamond kisses lipgloss pot. It is a shimmery rose and sparkling color. The pot with the gloss in it has the form of a diamond. The consistence is a little sticky but the cuteness of it exceeds it and overall the color is really cute. 

Last but not least is a mascara.  it is the Avon mega effects mascara. I have never seen one like this before. It is kind of a tricky thing to open it. You might need some practice. I got it in the brown-black but they also have it in deepest black. It has a wide applicator to apply. The brown/black one is a nice alternative for day time. You can apply a lot of it and it doesn´t look to dark.

So that´s it for this time. Next time (hopefully soon) I got some skin care news from Avon. 
Take care. See you. 🙂
