Collective FOTD and ELF mini-haul.

18 Oct


So I’m trying to catalog my FOTD (Face Of The Day) looks through pictures everyday and hopefully it will give you some idea what I’ve been doing.

necklace: f21
dress: f21
sweater: AE

Smokey eyes

My usual thick liner but not as heavy—I wanted to showcase my bangs.

the outfit. a black merino turtle neck and a pencil skirt from h&m. necklace from agaci.

Skimped on shadow. Wore MAC Bite of An Apple. ❤
Top: f21
Necklace: f21

Vertical Spirals using a 3/4″ curling iron. This was taken at the end of the day, after it’s loosened a bit. Still looks nice, IMO. Very bouncy. Hehe.

Too lazy to post all products used, but if you ask, I will reply.

I also have a mosquito bite on my left eyelid, so I am holding off on putting too much eyeshadow and recording videos. I have had to wear false lashes for the past few days and it is not especially fun/easy when you’re in a rush every morning.

Of course, I will continue to try to gather video ideas and churn them out whenever I can.

I placed an ELF order last week, where they had a treasure hunt sale (60% off certain items and an extra 50% off entire order). I came home to this tonight:

Left to Right:
ELF Studio blushes in Gotta Glow, Berry Merry, and Blushing Rose
ELF Beauty Encyclopedia Eyes in Basic Eye and Natural Eye

My entire order was just under $15, plus shipping.

ELF Studio Blush – They are powdery and soft and heavenly. I approve. I shall acquire more when the time is right.
Gotta Glow – NARS Albatross dupe! – cream highlight with gold sheen
Berry Merry – A deep rosy pink with a gold sheen to it. Not ‘berry’ (i.e. purply) to me, but still pretty for fall/winter.
Blushing Rose –  A peachy rose color, slight gold sheen to it, and not quite as pigmented as the other ones. Had to swatch a few times before getting the color on my hand.

On to the palettes!

I LOOOVE the colors but hopefully I will not have to settle for damaged goods. I reckon the colors will be gorgeous. Not a huge fan of the cream shadow but meh. Also the sponge-tip applicator for eyeshadow is a dud. The brush on the other hand… is a nice surprise.

I am really disappointed with the palettes because an eyeshadow was cracked, and one of the cream shadows was dipped/swiped. Gross. I e-mailed customer service, and will await their news.

I’m pooped.


ELF is sending new palettes to me, free of charge. Hurray!!! I’m assuming I get to keep my old ones, lol.

    Don’t you know when ELF says 50% off, they use 50% of the product before mailing it to you? =P I’m just kidding, but yeah, that’s such bullshit. You should raise some hell. n_n

    I love your daily looks! I hope I start putting more effort into my appearance soon (I usually choose an extra 30 minutes of sleep over beautifying myself <_<;;), but I'll get there. Eventually. hehehe

      I’ve never had a problem with their orders like that. =\ One time I did have an issue with a product that separated and they sent me a replacement for free.
