Third Elf from the left

Time for my third e.l.f. order!
This time I got lashcurler, blush, eye primer, Ivory gel liner and Innocent Nail polish as a free gift.
Eye primer is not in the picture, I totally forgot it. I'll review it later.
 So.

First the most horrible thing ever:
Mechanical Eyelash Curler


They sure do look nice and sturdy, BUT:





Apparently nobody has bothered to smooth the sharp metal parts! I just can't put these even near to my eye, it hurts way too much.
1,7 euros thrown away.

Stay away from these, unless you want to get cuts on your eyelids.

Then the gel liner.

This is quite same as the Gunmetal one.
It seems to stay put quite well, but doesn't stick on my waterline.

Then the blush.
I actually got this one, because it was said to be close dupe to NARS Orgasm. I still don't know how Orgasm looks like, but this fits the image I have of it.

My first try with this was bit of dissappointing, because this isn't the most pigmented blush. But with little work you'll get a nice, natural peachy gold glow on your cheeks.


And finally he freebie that turned out to be the best thing in this order.
It's the BEST nude polish I have tried. Other have been too pink, blue, yellow, dark or light to my skin, but this one works perfectly <3

And since this still is supposed to be makeup blog (not just review/swatch blog), here's my today's look, done with MAC Teal & Vanilla pigments, Papaeazz-she eyeshadow, Undercurrent liner and MUFE 12L liner:

  2. Sorry to hear you had a bad run with the eyelash curler - I wonder if it was a bad batch or something - I've used mine for a bit now and haven't had a problem with it all, and on closer examination there doesn't seem to be any sharp edges.

    Nonetheless, love the E.L.F reviews, keep 'em coming :)

  3. Ouch about the eyelash curler! That's dangerous, especially near the eyes.

    Nice haul, though.

  8. Moikka!
    Kun tilailet tuolta Elfiltä, niin tulevatko tuotteet kuriirifirman toimittamina vai ihan vaan Postin mukana?
    Kiitokset jo etukäteen, jos viitsit vastata :)

  9. Glad it wasn't just me who had issues with the eyelash curler. Mine is too large for my eyes and hurts when I try to use it. It also has sharp edges. Glad it was only $1 and not more.

  10. Hi! This is my first time commenting. I love your blog and I was hoping you could answer a question. Do you have any experience with facial mists? My skin is fairly oily so when I do my makeup it can look a little powdery at first and then kinda melts into my skin after an hour or so, looking natural. But... if I'm doing my makeup in a rush before I have to go somewhere, I was hoping a face mist could soften the look immediately. What do you think? I'll check back to these comments for any help you may have! Thanks a bunch!

  12. Thanks for your Post! Perfect~
    I Love mascara, really Great effective eyelash curlers and all things Lashes.

    My new favorite is the Hot Lashes heated 2 pc lash curler. It has gotten great reviews at Amazon--Cult favorite Hot Lashes Makeup artist Kit..Absolute best out there~!

    They have a great sturdy 24K gold metal curler similiar to the Shu Uemura and Sheisdo one that comes with its own seperate pink small heater base that heats just the pad in the curler, this way my curl really lasts.

    Makes my eyes POP and keeps my lashes super curly, they have a website Hotlashes...HTH~

    Major Rave, the cadillac of curlers..so worth the price. My friends and I love love love this one! Best by far,,
    HTH~…:) Abundant blessings to all..
