Remington Limited Edition Straightening Iron: Textured Tools. A bargain at only $13.00 on Clearance at Target!

Remington Limited Edition Straightening Iron in Pink

Remington 1 Inch Ceramic Plated straightening Iron – Limited Edition

This post is to tell you about my beauty find that’s got me too excited. I was at Target shopping the clearance and I found this baby. For a mere $13.00, you get a 30 heat setting straightening iron that claimed to heat to 400 degrees farenheit. Sign Me up! I typically avoid buying irons outside of beauty supplies because they simply don’t get hot enough but 400 degrees is plenty hot to straighten and curl my hair; and, for this price, what did I have to lose? Read on to see what I thought.

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. I was pleasantly surprised with these shadows. Read on…..

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.
