Estée Lauder DayWear

Estée Lauder's DayWear- Advances Multi-Protection anti-Oxidant Creme SPF 15 is the best facial moisturizer for super dry skin I've seen for a looong time. It leaves my skin super smooth and elasctic. The smell is fresh and clean (if that makes sense), kind of cucumberish. The only down side is that it doesn't come cheap.

ELF Mineral Infused Mascara

Elf Mineral Infused Mascara is part of the Studio Line, but is "mineral infused". I am not sure what that means. It only comes in black and non-waterproof, which is fine by me as I only use black non-waterproof mascaras. But for others it might be a problem. It's a long-wearing mascara. The mascara makes the lashes look longer and kind of natural, since you (almost) don't get any clumps, thanks to the silicone bristles, and because it doesn't make them thick. The wand is one of the rubbery, flexible ones and has short bristles. If you are looking for thick lashes, don't buy this mascara. It doesn't give you dramatic eyes. So I would use this one on an everyday basis. The packaging is plain,  mat black and looks a lot like MAC's Zoom Lash Mascara. I really like mat black surfaces of make-up brushes, mascaras etc. I love my Chanel products and the simple packaging, but my finger easily leaves prints on the shiny black surface. I am truly happy with TLF's Mineral Infused Mascara and the price is just unbeliveable (£3,50).

ELF update

Nelly's Delhi says thank you to ELF for great service. I wrote to them late yesterday evening about the Earth & Water Mascara Duo I mentioned in my previous post. Today I got a reply. They didn't have the mascara in stuck. But if I want it, they will send me a Studio Mineral Infused Mascara.

ELF Everyday Eyes Kit

I promised to review my E.L.F products (these and these). I'm in Denmark at the moment and forgot to bring all my newly bought stuff. So You'll have to wait with some of the reviews 'till I'm back in Israel in February.

Back in December, I won an "Everyday Eyes" kit in E.L.F's Christmas (gift) Calandar. Today I had time to take a closer look on all the things. The kit includes: False Eye Lashes, Mini defining eye Brush, Brightening Eye liner Duo, Earth & Water Mascara Duo, Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara, Eye Shadow Duo x2, two applicators and a sharpener.

I'm really impressed by the two Eye Shadow Duos. They are very pigmented and they are long lasting. Both of them has a satin finish. One is called Candellight and it's a mother of pearl color and a yellowish color. Both are great as highlighters under the brow or all over the eyelids. The other one is called Bronze  and is a dark brown and a bronze color. Great for a brown smokey eyes.

The Brightening Eye liner Duo is a soft eyeliner duo. One end is a shiny bronze. It's great for blue eyes and for a more festive look. The other end is a more matt brown. I use the brown every day as a soft liner on the upper lid. They are easy to blend and smudge. I consider them waterproof though the packaging doesn't say anything about it.

The Falsies come with a small glue. I haven't tried the lashes as I'm terrible when it comes to applying falsies. I can't get the outer part to stay put. Any tips? The lashes are of different lengths which I guess will make them blend easier into your own.

I wont use the bristles. Using the fingers gives you much more color than by applying the shadows with the bristles.

The Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara Eyebrow part is a clear gel that is great at shaping your eyebrows. It wears really well. It doesn't make them stiff, which I think is good. The eyelash part didn't impress me. I didn't see any kind of difference. It's not like a curler or thickener. But if you have natural dark and full lashes and you ar egoing for a more natural look, you might like this.

The Earth & Water Mascara Duo was one big disappointment. The applicators are too small even for one with small eyes and no space between brow and lid. The worst part was that both ends were dry- very dry! One of the ends were turned into stone (see picture). I know I got the kit for free. But I still want to inform ELF about it.

My overall opinion: Very impressed with eye shadows and eye liner. The rest of the kit was more or less useless for me. I don't know if you can by the things seperately in shops as shops in both Denmark and Israel (where I live) don't carry ELF. I couldn't find the products online. The packaging doesn't look expensive. But ELF's prices are veryyy cheap, so you can't complain.

Glam Grunge

This month you wanna get cosy in oversized jumpers and floor sweeping skirts. Pair the outfit with some wedges and a statement necklace. Keep either lips or eyes in dark colors such as black, plums and browns. Dark eyes, neutral lips, Dark lips, neutral eyes. Go for a messy hairdo. For AW 2010/11 designers such as Marc Jacobs, Dries Van Noten and Micheal Kors paired glamoures maxi skirts with oversized sweaters and beanies for a modern take on the 90's grunge. Though the Olson-twins are wearing maxi skirts and oversized sweaters I wont recommend this look for short people. It would only make you shorter. If you are small on top or bottom wear light colors. Are you big on top or bottom wear dark colors. Light makes bigger, dark makes smaller.
