My Top 13 of 2013



Hi Everyone..

Yes I am late to the party but at least I showed up! I said to myself: You will post your 13 Favorites of 2013 or you will close down this blog!.. You might wonder why I am soo dramatic, this is a yearly stable post here on My Little Corner, so it is very important.
I have had this blog for few years now but only for the last few months I have been posting regularly, the only thing that has been a stable is my yearly favorite products..! 

So now it is time for my top 13 of 2013, these are the products I used the most and I love and recommend all of them. I only included make-up since I would never be able to pick my top skin/body/hair care right now. :)
There is no special order, all of them are my favorite :D

Number 1 -

 Bourjois Foundations, if it is the Healthy Mix or the Healthy Mix Serum, I love both of them. This is my second bottle of the Serum foundation but as you can see I am almost finished with the Healthy Mix Foundation.
These foundation have the most beautiful finish and are so amazing. Both of them blend so well into the skin and stay on all day. The Healthy Mix Foundation has a little bit more coverage than the healthy Mix Serum Foundation. But on an everyday basis I love wearing these two.
I have almost the whole range of Healthy Mix products, the concealer and powder and I really think these are one of the top products from the drugstore. 




Number 2 & 3 

Maybelline The Rocket Volume' Express Waterproof Mascara, I fell in love with this mascara, I got it in the waterproof version and my god it is difficult to remove but with the right eye makeup remover it is no problem. It held the curl all day and gave my lashes Volume and length, I thought it was so black and the brush is so chunky with small bristles that combs the lashes to make sure they doesn't clump.

Dior Diorshow Waterproof, My first ever high end mascara and I really love it. I used it until it dried out. The formula is a bit dry and waxy but I think that helps the curl to hold all day. (that is so important to me, with my straight boring lashes). The brush is very different from the Rocket mascara but it really did work for me. It was so easy to use and even though the brush is quite big it has a tapered end that gets those small lashes perfectly. 




Number 4 & 5 - 

So I think these are my top three most used lipsticks this year, I only count them as two (a little cheat, I know) but the L'oreal Pink Passion and Maybelline Shocking Coral are so similar, almost the same.

L'Oreal number 371 called Pink Passion, such a beautiful color, this is one of my all time favorite lipstick, I like the formula and the color payoff is incredible. This is called the Intense formula, after it wears off it leaves the most prettiest stain on my lips. 

It is a very bright, pink with a hint of coral. It brightens up your face when you wear it. 

Revlon Lip butter in Raspberry Pie, this is my go to fall/winter lipstick, I love love love the formula and the color is just amazing.
I would just describe this color as a Raspberry color haha, it is red but not the normal red (makes sense?), it has like a fuchsia tint to it. I just really love this lipstick!


Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Lipstick in Shocking Coral, This was the lipstick I wore the most in the summer, it is very similar to the L'Oreal Pink Passion but the Shocking Coral is a coral based shade with pink as well (where the L'Oreal one is a pink with coral).
The Color sensational lipsticks have a great formula and this is my favorite color from the Vivids collection. It just makes you look like you made ton of effort when you just put on a pretty lipstick. 




From left to right:
L'Oreal - Pink Passion (371)
Revlon - Raspberry Pie

Maybelline - Shocking Coral



Number 6 & 7 & 8

These are my favorite blushers this year.
Two of the are from MAC, the first one is called My Paradise and is from a collection couple of summers ago. I was keeping it safe and not using it for ages but seriously why? The shade is gorgeous and I used it so much this year, I try not to put my brush into the gold since it is super pretty and I don't want to completely ruin it. But it has a proper dent on the other side. It is a proper peach/coral shade and just perfect for summer.

The next MAC blush is called Peachykeen, this is very similar to Nars Orgasm but without the chunks of glitter. I have been using this shade alot in the fall and winter, It just gives a beautiful glow and looks great with any lipstick. The formula is nice and it stays on all day. 


Benefit Coralista, I bought this blush this summer and since then it has been my go to blush. I think this is the perfect coral blush. I would recommend it to anyone! A bit weird but I love the way it smells and the brush that comes with it, is great. 



Number 9 &10 -

I used so many eye shadows this year but my standout are these two palettes, Mainly because both palettes are high quality and have such a great payoff. 

The first one is the Wet N' Wild trio in Walking on Eggshells. I love it! the lightest shade is perfect for inner corner highlight and the middle shade is perfect all over the lid. These shadows are so creamy and I am definetly going to try to get more of these eye shadows.

Soap and Glory Lid Stuff in Whats Nude. Talk about a drugstore eyeshadow quad! This palette has three matte shades and one shimmer one. If you need a blending color or a creamy matte highlight this is for you. It is such a basic eyeshadow quad and I love using it.



Number 11 & 12 & 13 -

Maybelline Master Shape Brow in Dark Blonde. I re-purchased this pencil again this year since I can't be without it, I love it, I go trough it quickly since it is very waxy. My eyebrows are quite long so since this pencil is waxy it keeps them in place. The color Dark Blonde is a great match to my shade. I love the fact that it has a spooly to comb through the eyebrow and to blend the pencil in. 

Urban Decay Primer Potion, I got this same tube last year for Christmas (2012) and almost every single time I used eyeshadow which is on everyday basis I used this and I still have loads left. I have been using this product for years now and I will always re-purchase it. Now I am actually trying out other eyelid primers and I will try to let you guys know what I think of them, but the primer potion is just such a stable and does the job perfectly!
The Primer Potion has been in all of my yearly favorites! That says alot :)


Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. This is a surprise favorite, I didn't realise how much I used it this year. I think this concealer is creamy and pigmented. I love using it under my eyes and around my nose. It just covers everything and stays in place. 



So that is it! My Top 13 products of 2013! 
I was thinking about doing like a step by step with these products so let me know in the comments if you would like to see them on my face :D

Ebay Jewelry Haul #1 Necklaces!

Hi Everyone, last year I added ebay on to my list of addictions... So over the last few months, items have been arriving slowly. I am going to show you guys every now and then my purchases and this time is all about jewelry, this time I will make it into two post, necklaces and earrings :D
I will link the seller if I can find them again and also I only buy things with free worldwide delivery and all these things are shipped right through my letter box! :D


I got five necklaces and it took them all about a month to arrive in Iceland which is fair enough. I am very happy with all of these :)


First one is a mint triangle necklace, it is very pretty and I think it will look so good in the spring time.
It was only $1.59 and you can get them in more colors (here)


The next one is a unique one, I bought it for $1.29 and I can't find it again for that price but I will leave a link here where it is around $3, my only problem with this one is that it smells a bit like metal, the other ones are fine. I do like it though :)


This one is super light, it feels a bit cheap but you can't really see it when you are wearing it. I think it looks very pretty and it is under a dollar! (link here)


I got this black and white with tiny studs at the bottom for $1.54 but again I can't find the exact one but here is the same one for $3 (link here)


I love this one, it will look very pretty under a shirt collar and I want to get these in different colors, I got it for $1.25, but I am having trouble finding this one again. :( 

So that was the first part of my Ebay Haul!
I will post the second part tomorrow when it is just earrings! :)
I have also been shopping nail stuff and brushes (which are amazing) and I will definitely post about those purchases soon :)

Do you shop on Ebay? :D

Mani-Monday... Chanel with Glitter!

Hi Everyone! 

Happy Monday! Even though it is super late it is still Monday.. I had work this morning and then a bit of school but then Iceland was competing in handball (big game) and me and my friend had to watch it so we went and got a burger and cider while the rest of the girls sat in class (lol) and then we all went out for super nice dinner to celebrate a inside joke, it was super nice and I had such a great time. This Monday has been amazing! Hope the rest of the week will be the same.

Anyway, I was wearing one of my top winter nail polish from Chanel on my nails but since I bought a new nail polish from the Gwen Stefani line from OPI, I had to apply it on top. The pictures do not do it justice since the glitter is amazing.


I spoke about the Chanel Nail polish in Blue Satin in my top Favorite Winter Nail polishes (link here)

It is such a beautiful color. 
The star is the OPI Gwen Stefani Nail polish called In True Stefani Fashion and it is a clear based glitter, the glitter is tiny silver particles and chunky holographic pieces.





I love love love the glitter polish! I am a total glitter addict and I am thinking about going to get more of the nail polishes from the OPI Gwen Stefani collection.
Have you picked up any polish from the collection?

Thanks for reading, I have to go to sleep now, or at least take off my makeup...
btw, I got two deliverys today! Haul comming soon :D

FOTD with first impressions on the Max Factor Facefinity Foundation and a little bit of MAC

Hi Everyone

This is going to be a long post... Today I was trying out a new foundation and I want to share with you my first impression, I was also using my two new MAC products for the first time today and I think they will be included in tomorrows post.  

I also really liked the makeup today, I thought it was very fresh and easy so I also have a FOTD included in today's post :)

I might be a little crazy, but I have few unopened foundations since I have a slight obsession with foundations and I like to try out new ones. But I was feeling a bit down today so I was going through my makeup and I figured for a little pick me up, why not try out a new foundation.
In the blogging world everyone talks about the Max Factor Facefinity 3 in 1 Foundation or the Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation. If you didn't know already, these are the same foundation. Covergirl and Maxfactor are the same brand, with most of the same products.
Everyone raves about this foundation and I have had it sitting in my drawers for a long time still unopened. I thought this was the perfect day to try it out. 


Let's just start with the packaging, it is a glass bottle which I prefer and has a pump. I have the shade in Warm Almond 45, and so far it is a great color match. Before I bought it, months ago when I live in London, I did match myself and try it out a little bit while I was at work but never used it on my full face.
According to the Boots website they have 6 shades available and I have the second lightest. I remember the lightest one, Ivory was a bit too yellow for me. 


Let's ignore the just got out of the shower hair... :)
I have a bit of redness around my nose and my lovely dark circles to cover up. (the picture on the left)
I just pumped the foundation on to the back of my hand, took a brush and dotted it around my face (the picture in the middle) and then buffed it in. 
I already had a primer and I think that was not a great idea. This foundation is supposed to act like your primer, foundation and concealer. I felt that it looked a bit patchy on my nose, I do honestly think it was the primer I used before and that the foundation did not work well with it.
However I love the coverage that it gives, I mean it is soo natural but matte at the same time. I feel like it has somewhat of a satin finish and if I was in a hurry I would not have to use a concealer or a powder with this foundation. 


I love the color, I have such a pale face and the color matches my neck perfectly. 
You can see how it covers the redness on my nose and chin. I applied the smallest amount on my eyelids and my eyelids are so dark and the foundation just made them look normal. I think it is just so natural.

Overall the Max Factor Facefinity Stay Flawless Foundation 3 in 1 had fantastic first impression on me. I will continue to use it for a while and I will let you guys know if all of the sudden I don't like it. I really don't see that happening since I this is a great foundation and it is late in the evening when I am writing this and my foundation is still fairly flawless. I am so impressed. 

Then I went ahead and finished the rest of my makeup


The most exciting item I used was my new MAC products from the Magnetic Nude Collection, I picked up a eyeshadow called Sweet Heat and a blush called Autoerotique.
That eyeshadow is so beautiful, I have a tiny bit of neutral brown eyeshadow in my crease and then just the MAC eyeshadow in Sweet Heat all over my lid, I love this eyeshadow.. I wish I could marry it and we could have pretty eyeshadow babies..
Anyway I am also just wearing my e.l.f. liquid eyeliner and the Maybelline Falsies Mascara.
I have the Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner in nude in my waterline because I wanted to keep it very soft.


Here are all the products I used:


I did not really need concealer on the rest of my face but I did have to use the Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Peach under my eyes.
To set everything and make it stay all day I used my MAC Mineralize skinfinish Natural in Light. I lightly applied it in my t-zone and to set my concealer.
For my eyelid primer I used Too faced shadow Insurance and then of course the prettiest eyeshadow, MAC Sweet Heat all over the lid. 
I am also in love with the blush MAC Autoerotique, it blends out so well and the color is just to die for. 

So here is my FOTD, after I finally dried and straightened my hair: 


So there you have it, have you tried out this foundation?

Top Five Friday - Winter Nail Polish

Hi everyone!

Time for the first installation of Top Five Favorites on a Friday! 
Everyone is starting to talk about spring but right now it is total winter here in Iceland (and yes before you ask, we do have spring and summer). 

I wanted to share with you my Top Five Winter Nail Polishes.


I did have a difficult time to narrow it down to only five, for me I think the perfect winter shade is a deep, dark color. I wear all kind of nail polishes all year around but when I sat down in front of my nail polishes these were the ones that really stood out to me. 


The first two are both from OPI. I love OPI, I think these are high quality nail polishes and they stay on for a good amount of time.

The one on the left is Midnight in Moscow, this is a very dark color with red micro-glitter that makes it look Burgundy in some light and in other almost black. You can see pictures of it here :)
The one on the right is from the Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 Collection and is called Cute Little Vixen, this is a dark metallic pink witch in some light looks red/purple.
I will do a NOTD with it soon :)


From Left to right :

Inglot Nail Polish number 371, I hate when products don't have a name, but anyway this is a dark smokey Brown shade which also has a Pink/purple iridescent shimmer.
I was wearing it the other day and it was impossible to get a nice picture, hopefully I can do a post with it soon.

Chanel in Blue Satin is sooo perfect. It is dark blue and in low lighting it looks almost black but in daylight it has such a pretty blue shimmer to it. I will post a mani-monday with it next Monday but I had to add a little glitter that I just bought from the OPI Gwen Stefani collection, you will see soon, soo pretty. 

The last one is Barry M Gelly, Hi-shine Nail paint in Watermelon! Green nail polishes are one of my favorite and this one is so beautiful. This nail polish is so shiny and opaque. High quality for a great price!
It is such a deep green color and I really think it looks a bit different than the normal dark nail polish in the winter.
Check out the Mani-Monday I did with this nail polish here, it looks soo shiny!


There you have it! 
What are your favorite Winter nail polishes? I would love to hear any of your recommendations :)
Also if you have any ideas about Top Five Friday, what I can do, let me know...

What's in my Make Up Bag : Travel Edition (Summer 2013)


Hi Everyone, 
I was going through my drafts and I found a post that was ready to be posted but somehow I forgot. 
I hope you don't mind me posting this now, I did take this makeup with me on a weekend trip this summer (Camping) but I do like all the products still and I would probably take very similar/same makeup with me next time.

...
I love what's in my makeup bag posts but it is difficult for me to make those since i don't keep my makeup in a bag.
But when I do go away, I make sure I pick makeup I will use!
Some might think that I do take a lot of make up with me, but i rather be prepared than not to bring what I need. I think that with this makeup it is fairly standard for a every day make up. 



I had to take my Dr. Jart BB cream, this is by far the best BB cream I have tried and it has SPF 25 so it was my sun screen. I used the BB cream every morning since there was sun and it gave me natural coverage as well. As for a foundation I brought the MUA Undress Me foundation. I just used the foundation later on in the day to give me natural coverage. It is a great foundation and it is only five pounds! 
Unfortunately I can have very dark under eye circles and especially since I only slept for few hours the Bobbi Brown corrector in soft porcelain was very appreciated, as for a concealer the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer is a good medium coverage with natural finish and I also used that around my eyes.
For a finishing powder I took my Rimmel Stay Matte powder. I didn't really use that to much. For a blush I brought my NYX blush in Angel, I have a review of this blush here. It is one of my favourite blush ever. I also brought the e.l.f. Contour and Blush duo. Just to have some option and I like the bronzer in this duo, it works well to do a soft contour.



As for the eyes I have my trusted Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze and that is the easiest eye look you could do. I also have my Wet n` Wild eyeshadow trio in Walking on Egshells, the lightest color is amazing as a inner corner highlighter and the middle color is amazing as a all over lid color. This is such.a great trio. For a blending color in my crease I love NYX single eyeshadow in Taupe. It is so smooth and  you can bland any  look with this color.
I did go a bit overboard with eyeliner but I do love the Revlon colorstay Eyeliner in Brown. You don't have to sharpen it and it is so easy to apply it to my top lash line for a bit of definition. I really want to get the same in black. But as for a black eyeliner I have the Max Factor eyeliner in black. Its ok, I just wanted it with me and I did use it one evening when I wanted more defined liner. I also took Avon SuperShock eyeliner in Flash and this color is great for the waterline. If you want brighter eyes this is great. 
I also have my favorite eyebrow pencil and that is Maybelline eyebrow pencil in Dark Blonde. I love this pencil. I also have a mascara and I have been using the Dior Showoff in black.

For lips it's all Revlon haha, you can't go wrong with a Lip Butter and I took Wild Watermelon and Strawberry Shortcake, you can see both of them here in a post I did all about the lip butters. I also have the Revlon Kissable balms stain in Honey and this is a great balm stain. I really like it. It stays on for a long time and does not dry out my lips. I have been going for moisturizing lip products since my lips have been quite dry lately



The brushes I have with me are
Real Technique Buffing Brush, duo fibre powder brush (for blush/bronzer) and the big powder brush.
For my eyes I have the No7 eyeshadow blend & Contour brush, Real Technique Shading Brush, Sigma E45 and the MAC 224 blending brush




I also had to bring my eyelash curlers, Tweezers and the Nivea Lip Butter!
You never know when you need a Tweezers...


So all the makeup was crammed into a bag and out for a travel. I did put the brushes in a brush roll but all the makeup fitted well into my clear makeup bag.


I did use all these products for the time I was there and I was very happy with my selection, I did not find that I needed anything else so I just wanted to share this with you guys

Better late than never right?

Favorite Eyeliner Combo right now - Too Faced and e.l.f

Hi Everyone

I love a good eyeliner and for the last two/three weeks I have been using the same eyeliner combo everyday. 
The combo I love is the e.l.f. Liquid eyeliner and the Too Faced Perfect eyes Waterproof eyeliner.


The e.l.f liquid eyeliner has a very fine brush, it is not super black, it is black but it applies a little sheer sometimes. That does not bug me because it is so easy to use it, if I want it totally black I just go over it once more and it is fine. The formula is not waterproof but it does not smudge on my eyelids at all. 


The Too Faced Perfect eyes Waterproof eyeliner is one of the blackest most opaque eyeliner I have ever tried. It is very creamy and completely waterproof. I apply it in the morning and it is still there when I take off my makeup at night. I got this in a Christmas set and when I finish this eyeliner I am getting the full size. 



Top: Too Faced Perfect eyes Waterproof Eyeliner
Bottom: e.l.f. Liquid Eyeliner 


The reasons why I love these two is that it is quick to apply them, The liquid eyeliner takes always such a long time but since the brush is very fine and a bit long, it makes it quicker and I make less mistakes.
The Too faced eyeliner is so pigmented and applies so easily. It just makes a quick application.

Both eyeliners stay on all day, there is no smudging and they look the same when I first applied them and when I take the off at night.

The e.l.f eyeliner is so affordable, there is no reason for anyone, not to try it out.
The Too Faced eyeliner is a high-end eyeliner but I think it is wo
rth the money and I am definitely re-purchasing it. 

What are your favorite eyeliners?
I am always trying out new eyeliners but right now I am loving these two

Mani-Monday... OPI Midnight in Moscow

Hi Everyone...


It is Monday!! I am loving regular posts right now, like my Mani-Monday or The Sunday Post. I don't do them every week but it is nice to have something certain to post when you have a busy schedule. 
Something I am very excited about is a new mini series I am going to do on Fridays and that will be Top Five Friday. So at least two Fridays in a month I will list my five favorites of something. Let me know if there is anything special you want to see. I already have few ideas and there are few brands I want to include in top five favorites :D


But anyway the nail polish I am wearing today is OPI Midnight in Moscow. I have had this nail polish for a while and I always use it around this time of year. I love how dark it is. It is almost black with red micro glitter/sparkle. It gives it a beautiful finish and I really love how this nail polish looks.




What is your favorite OPI nail polish? Have you tried this one?

Thanks for stopping by.. don't forget to follow the blog on bloglovin :D

The Sunday Post... Update and Tumblr

Hi Everyone!

I had a goal for January to try to blog every day or at least five times a week... Well a little fail since it's three days since I posted! Get back on the blogging train please...

Uni started again last Monday, I am excited but also fairly stressed. The classes are a bit more complicated and already I feel like I am behind, maybe because I did not want to study at all the first week. I am still in denial about the Holidays to be over... Next week I will be very organised and get things done.

I was waiting the other day for my boyfriend to finish work and I found myself in a store that sells books and that sort of stuff. I found a Purple leather notebook... I had to have it! Just to have a new notebook for my blog! I am addicted to notebooks, but in all fairness this one is awesome haha!


Planner from Peter Pauper Press
Purple notebook from Leuchtturm 1917
They are both bought at Eymundson here in Iceland but I know that both brands are available in the UK

I posted that photo on my Instagram @margretscorner and also on my Tumblr...

Speaking of my Tumblr haha... I have change the layout, it is now just one page with all the post like a collage with loads of pretty things and I have it on a scroll so it is just very comfortable to look through. 
You can check out my Tumblr here, I really try to update it once a day with pretty makeup or just things I love. There are few of my own pictures but I love re-blogging beautiful photos.
Here are some of the things I have been re-blogging :D
Link here

I have been very uninspired to blog for the last few days and I am excited for a fresh week, I will organise myself and make sure I get things done!

During the Holidays I started watching Made in Chelsea and tonight I watched season 6 End of Season Party... OMGOSH... anyone else a MiC fan? I have fallen in love with this tv show in a month. My favorite is probably Binky and Fransic. I like Cheska and I can't believe what Victoria said to her.. okay no one here knows what I am talking about so I need to stop hah...
Hope you will have a good week! If you are lost for inspiration go and check out my Tumblr :)

Lipstick of the day #7 FashionistA in Natural Pink

Hi Everyone

I posted few days ago My Toughts on the FashionistA Lipsticks and today I am posting the Lipstick of the day and it is FashionistA in Natural Pink.

I really love this lipstick for a natural everyday look. The only problem is that this is the one where the lid does not stay in place! If it would I would be wearing it more often. I am just aways so nervous about the lipstick to get ruined or all my stuff to get covered in lipstick, but anyway it is a beautiful color and I really like it.


The name explains it perfectly - Natural Pink


You can read the original post here about all my FashionistA lipsticks..

Thanks for checking in :D

E.l.f. Haul and First Impressions

Hi Everyone


In the end of November I bought some e.l.f products on 30% off with free international delivery. I have not had the change to post it so I am doing it today, I am blogging every day in January.. If you want to keep up please like my Facebook Page :)
I love using offers like that and especially to try out new things. Check out eyeslipsface.com here.




I'm going to show you what I got and also tell you about my first impression. I might do a posts about some of the products later on but here are my initial thoughts. Let me know if you want some more reviews and swatches about the products I got.


Contouring Blush and Bronzing Cream in St. Lucia. - I have the powder version of this and I was very curious to try out the cream duo. I was pleasantly surprised. The cream blends out nicely and I was worried about the product being very pigmented and the fact that I am fair and it is difficult to blend some cream blushes. I just blend it out either with my fingers or my favorite way with brush. The contour color gives a healthy glow to the skin and I think I will be able to use it more in the summer when I want more healthier glow. The blush color is very pigmented and looks so nice. I doesn't feel sticky after applying this cream product, I have to play more with these and see what I think but so far I like it.

Eyelash Curlers - I really like these. They have become my everyday eyelash curlers. They do not tug on my lashes at all and give me a nice curl.

Eyebrow Kit in Light - This was such a wanted item. Everyone raves about it and I had to try it. So far so good. I finally went and had my eyebrows shaped since I moved back and I have been playing around with few items to fill them in. I really like the wax side and hopefully I will do like an eyebrow post soon.

Studio Matte Lip Color in Natural -  I like this but I think I need to put lip balm on before. These last few weeks I have had such dry lips so it has not been an ideal situation for using a matte lip color. I will try to use it more in the next few weeks and maybe do a lipstick of the day with it. 

Eyelid Primer - What a product! This is comparable with the Urban Decay Primer Potion, keeps the eyeshadow crease-less and on all day.

Liquid Eyeliner - First time I used it I did not like it but then I tried it again and I loved it. It has such a small precise brush and just makes a straight line in a quick way. It is not the blackest liner I have but I have been using it almost everyday since then. 

Powder Brush - I don't really like this brush, maybe it is because I don't really know what to do with it. I read somewhere that some people love to use it for foundation and I tried it but didn't really like it. I think it is not really a great powder brush, to thick if that makes any sense. I will have to try it out more. If you have it and love it please tell me how you use it.


I got three eyeshadow brushes...

The basic eyeshadow brush - everyone talkes about it, about how nice it is. I haven't even tried it properly, it feels just so harsh. I need to try it before I make my decision but I don't think I will like it.

Defining Brush - I have used this one few times and this one is my favorite out of the bunch. It is so soft and helps blend out the outer corner. I like it.

Eye Crease brush - this brush is so harsh! I need to find a way to use it. Maybe to blend out eyeliner. There is no way I would use this into the crease. I don't really know...


Well I like most of the products, I need to try them out a little bit more, especially the brushes. If you have any e.l.f. brushes feel free to tell me how you use them and why you like them. 
I have way to many brushes so it will take a lot for me to like new brushes and use them instead of my regular ones. :)


Tell me in the comments if you have tried any of these products and if you like them :D

Thanks for reading
