e.l.f. HAUL || chelseahkitty


Earlier this month e.l.f. (eyeslipsface.com) was having an event for free shipping on orders over $25. I had gone to Target because they do sell some e.l.f. products but I couldn't find any of the studio brushes or the setting spray people have raved about..turns out they only sell these things online! I think e.l.f. has great quality for the price, especially some of the brushes. 


Ok, so here are the products I ordered: 

Brushes: (in order from left to right in the picture above.)
  • Flawless Concealer Brush 
    • Great for under-eye concealing. NOT for concealing blemishes, it's larger than it looks.
  • Small Tapered Brush 
    • I use this for highlighting my cheekbones using one of the blushes I bought. Could also be great for contouring since its small and fluffy.
  • Small Angled Brush 
    • The first time I went to use this a TON of the hairs fell out..maybe I got a bad one. It still works great for applying cream eyeliner though. 
Blushes: 
  • HD Blush in "Superstar"  
    • I haven't used this one on my face yet, but testing it on my hand it is VERY pigmented (as in, a pea size would be enough to cover like..your entire face!) 
  • Blush in "Pink Passion"  
    • Great everyday color. 
  • Baked Blush in "Rich Rose"  
    • Just a pink blush with gold shimmer.
  • Baked Blush in "Pinktastic" 
    • This could never be used as a blush, but I didn't buy it to use as a blush anyway. I use it as a highlighter because it's a very pretty pale/light tan shimmer. 
Eyeliners:
  • Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil (Teal)
  • Waterproof Eyeliner Pen (Black)
Other:
  • Makeup Mist & Set
    • Spray it on after you've applied all your makeup or just to refresh your face during the day. I've noticed if my face feels cakey from powder I can spray this and it helps make it look more dewy. 

Cost: All items were 3$ each except the eyeliners which were $1 each. 
If you'd like a more detailed review or picture for a certain product/s just comment below and I will get to it ASAP.

DIY: Potion Pendant || chelseahkitty

Here is all the info you'll need to make your own potion pendant! 
Once you have all the supplies, it takes about 30 minutes to make the actual pendant.
All items were purchased at Michael's craft store except for the food coloring, which I finally found at Walmart in the spices section..weird. 
The total cost was about $30.00, but I can make a lot of these with the supplies I got.

You will need these items:
 

Steps 

Step 1: Choose a glass bottle. 

Step 2: Prepare the cork. 
  • Use a wire cutter to shorten the eye pin to fit the length of the cork. 


  • Push the eye pin all the way into the cork.

  • Hook a jump ring to the eye pin. (So you can string a chain through it later.)
 

Step 3: Add charms.
  • Wrap wire around the top of the jar. Add charms by stringing them through the wire itself (what I did) or by adding jump rings to the wire then adding charms to the jump rings.


Step 4: Prepare your potion. 
  • Add a few drops of liquid food coloring to clear glue and mix.

  • Carefully pour this mixture into the bottle. 

Step 5: Secure the top.
  • Put super glue along the bottom rim of the cork and put the cork in. 

Step 6: Chain the jump ring 
  • Depending on the chain, you might also need to buy a clasp. 


I'll be making a lot more of these soon, so I'll probably do another blog post of just pictures of different ones I come up with.

Thanks for reading! 
If you make one be sure to tweet me a picture of it!
You can also send me suggestions for future blog posts there :)
