My e.l.f Cosmetics Favorites

Ever super regret waiting too long to get hip to a product? That’s basically me right about now. I’ve been hearing and seeing E.L.F cosmetics everywhere, but I never stopped to pick up any items for myself.

So, don’t get discouraged when the first set of products you try don’t work. It’s…

Must Have Red-Orange Lipsticks for Medium Brown Skin!

We all have that one signature color lipstick that we like to wear. For some is a bold and sexy red and for others, it’s a soft subtle nude. I always thought my go to color was red, and then I went on this stint where I was all about the nudes because who doesn’t love a good nude (see my favorites here). Now I still love a good nude, but after trying out the Sleek VIP Lipsticks I realized that I may have found my “spirit color”. It was almost like I didn’t choose the color the color just choose…
