Face of the Day for a visit to the MAC counter

Face of the Day 9.22.11

Face of the Day for 9.22.11: MAC and some drugstore

I always like my makeup to look great when I go to any place where cosmetics are sold – I mean, why not? You wouldn’t go to the dentist with dirty teeth right? Well, today I was visiting my local MAC counter, so the majority of what I wore is MAC only. The MAC collections for LE products are in parens. Breakdown is below….

Eyes Lips Face Mineral Eyeshadows Review and Swatches

ELF Mineral Eyeshadows

ELF Mineral Eyeshadows

ELF is another brand that I adore. Their products are so cheap and many are surprisingly great. But, at the price, you just can’t help but give them a whirl. I won’t say that I’ve like every product I bought from ELF (most notably, some of their lighter eyeshadows in the beauty books lack pigmentation). But, I would say overall, they have great things to offer. My favorite products from ELF are their brushes, their eye primers, and blushes. I picked up a set of three eyeshadows from their mineral line at my local target. I didn’t know what to expect from the shadows as my experience with ELF eyeshadows has been big hit or big miss.

My Favorite Nail Tool: ELF Nourishing Cuticle Pen

ELF Nourishing Cuticle Pen

ELF Nourishing Cuticle Pen Packaging

This is going to be a short and sweet review, not a lot of pictures or swatches here but I want to rave about a product I’ve fallen in love with! I manicure may nails quite often since I never get them done in a salon. I paint them a few times a week and I like my cuticles to be both conditioned and pushed back. Previous to finding this little nifty pen here, I was using a cuticle remover and pusher. This worked well but it took two minutes to let the cuticle remover work and then I had to clean up the cuticles and wash my hands. This little baby took care of all that for me. I keep this on my nightstand and just pick it up before I start painting. I push my cuticles back with it and it works for that purpose as well as nourishes my cuticles so they don’t look scragly.

I love this so much for a few reasons. 1. It’s super cheap at 1 dollar from my target. 2. It’s handy and the packaging is great – tight fitting cap on a small, easy to hold pen. 3. It gets the job done quickly and well.

I think that’s just about all I can say about it – it works, I love it, and would reccomend it to anyone who does their nails DIY style like me.
