Milani & Elf Cosmetics Product Review & Swatches

Makeup Image

Here is a quick Milani and Elf cosmetics product review for you guys, I even went all out with a small video to show you guys some skin swatches. If this is something you guys enjoy, & would like for me to review other products just let me know.

Over the holiday break we went on a Walmart run, I didn’t even go for makeup….. It just happened ha!  Here are the four products I grabbed.

Makeup Haul

  1. Milani Illuminating Face Powder- This is the first time I tried any Milani cosmetics, I fell in love with the packaging, and I absolutely loved the colors in this powder, but I’m not sure if it’s not pigmented enough or what. It just barely showed on my skin, I thought it was a highlighter but It just didn’t work for me at all.
  2. Milani Bella Eyes Gel Eye shadow- Man this eye shadow is bomb, I love everything about it and it is super pigmented. If you look closely there is little shimmers in the powder that make this eye shadow perfect for a smokey eye.
  3. Elf Intense Ink Eyeliner- Elf cosmetics give me life I’m sorry but I’m cheap and I love their products. Trying this eyeliner was the best thing ever. I have been looking for an eyeliner with a marker tip for a while many that I purchased were literally dry right from the package. This eyeliner is a steal deal!!
  4. Elf Eyeliner & Shadow Stick- This eyeliner duo is Awesomme!! I will be straight up with everyone I absolutely suck doing my eye makeup, so when I came across this bad boy the hype was serious! I can do a pretty sweet smokey eye with this handy wand! I love it

Check out the product swatches! <3


Let me know what you guys think?

Have you tried these products before, If so what was your experience with it?

Make-Up Look Of The Day & Cabella’s Trip

Posted in Beauty & Make-Up by
Makeup Products Collage


Hi everyone , I Just wanted to share an image with you guys of this weekends make-up look. I’m not an extreme make-up enthusiast but I love make-up and all of the art people create with it. Whenever I do mines and I love everything about it, I feel the need to share it with everyone and get feedback. I feel so accomplished even if it’s a simple everyday look with bold lips.


Here are the products I used to create this simple look:

  1. Primer- Maybelline Master Prime (helps blur & control redness)
  2. Lips- ColourPop Liquid lipstick (shade Tulle)
  3. Foundation- Elf acne prevention foundation (shade beige)
  4. Eyes- Maybelline Master Kajal Cream Kohl Eyeliner
  5. Eyes- Calvin Klein One Mascara
  6. Eyebrows- Elf Eyebrow Kit (shade dark)

Make-up Look of the day

I  hope you guys had a lovely weekend I sure did.  We took a trip to Cabella’s with the whole family. I wanted to show the baby the animal museum they have and the small fish aquarium. He loved everything about the trip, he couldn’t stop yelling and running around pointing at everything.

By the way are their any Kingdom Hearts fans out there? Check out my awesome t-shirt, this is by far the best videogame ever!!!

Thanks for stopping by for a quick read!

DIY : Designing a Banner For an Etsy Shop

Posted in DIY'S by
DIY Etsy Shop Banner

I noticed that my etsy shop banner for my digital printables SHOP HERE  needed a little sprucing up. The fact that all Etsy shops look practically the same makes designing your shop a super difficult task. As my design platform I use not only because its super easy to use but when I first discovered the website I accidentally purchased pretty much a year membership and I had access to everything although this is a free platform , there is so much more you can do once your a member.  Read more…
