e.l.f. Cosmetics Daily Hydration Moisturizer SPF 15 REVIEW

It is not conventional of me to do any sort of review, but I was so compelled to reviewing this particular item.  So here it goes…

First of, I absolutely love e.l.f. make-up brushes and have been a fan of them since their earlier years before they were sold in stores.  This item is my first face item I have tried from their line.

I visited the e.l.f. store and thought $8 for 2.53 oz of face product is a great deal.  It was winter time and I wanted my face to feel soft and hydrated and because it was my first e.l.f. face item I was really excited to try it out the following day.

I tried it out for a little over a week and it was good product to use to get me through the day.  After a few days of use I would notice my face get flakey and dry!  A complete opposite of what the packaging says!!  I stopped using the moisturizer for a couple of days and low and be hold, my skin was not dry or flaking.  After a few days of rest from the product I wanted to give it a go again and after a two consecutive uses my face began to dry again!

So again, I stopped using the product.  A few months have passed since winter and I thought, “Let’s try using the moisturizer again since it’s warmer now.”  A single day of use and the same results, dry and flaking skin.  Its details are..

This lightweight, broad-spectrum SPF 15 moisturizer helps hydrate and nourish for glowing, healthy looking skin.  Infused with Purified Water and skin-nourishing antioxidants from Vitamin E and Grape.” 

I have normal skin and take good care of my face, but it’s odd to not have this product work for me despite its description.  I do not usually explore outside of their make-up brushes, but this for me is a no-go.

MAC Lipstick Haul

I’ve been wanting new lipstick colors within the past few months and I found out Heroine was re released and I picked it up.  (I LOVE PURPLE!!)  I also had a gift card and I found out starting tomorrow, February 2nd the prices of their lippies will go up from $15 to $16.  When I found out about the price increase I picked up 2 more colors!

Vegas Volt because I was a nice coral color to my lips.

While at the store I wanted a nude color with a hint of pink and none of the colors were working out for me so I passed on that.  A few months ago I wanted a dark lipstick color that was appealing to my skin tone, but I choose Impassioned (which I L<3VE).   Tried on Rebel and it didn’t disappoint.

I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying more of these in the future, but it’ll be in the far future.  I’m good on lipsticks for now.

e.l.f. haul at e.l.f. Studio New York

I went to New York last week and heading to the e.l.f. store was on my list.  Here’s what I came out with.

*Pointed Foundation Brush; Studio Line

*Small Tapered Brush; Studio Line

* Eyeshadow “C” Brush; Studio Line

*Eyebrow Kit in Light; Studio Line

*Essentials Nail Polish in Enchanted; Essentials Line

*Essentials Nail Polish in Gold Star; Essentials Line

I’m not too crazy on e.l.f. make-up, but I do love the studio brushes.  I have enough nail polish, but what the heck..I added two more to my collection.  I love how you’re able to sample the make-up at the store.  Down side, they don’t have all the products they offer online and the customer service could use some work.
