Elf Makeup Mist and Set Review

I love that Elf is always adding new products to their collection. When I heard that they came up with a makeup setting spray-I had to give it a try and see if it lives up to its claims. Since the spray is only $3, it really was no brainer... to see if this product is a hit or miss, keep reading :-)






PRODUCT CLAIMS

" Wish you could have a product for your makeup like Hairspray is for your hair? Well…keep your makeup staying in place all day with a radiance boosting invisible hold with our new Makeup Mist and Set. The invigorating mist moisturizes and soothes the skin with key ingredients Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C & E. The lightweight, comfortable and alcohol free formula improves makeup wearability and prevents color from running or fading."



PROS

-Very cheap, only $3
-Can be bought at Target or online from Elf.
-Small enough to be carried on the go: pocket, purse or cosmetic bag.
-Doesn't have a harsh smell.



MY THOUGHTS

So far so good, I've worn the spray when I had on minimal makeup and when I had a full face of makeup and my makeup lasted until I took it off. I really would like to test this product in the summer to see how it really holds up. Right now, it's working for me.... for $3 it's worth a try.

The makeup mists are always multi-purpose for me, I use it to freshen and moisturize the skin before makeup, I spray it on after foundation to give a dewy finish and I also use makeup sprays to apply eyeshadow pigments for a more intense color. I will update this review when I see how it performs over the summer season.

Them random polishes are the best! LOL! Yellow's such a hard color to pull off but that one's doing right by your skin tone.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!

At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.


Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."


Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
