. unintentional mini haul .

The day after my last post, I went out and tried to find a new face cleanser with some salicylic acid to help with the constant breakouts ive been having.
(tyty for the tip Noxin~ ♥♥♥)

I decided on the Neutrogena CVS orange bar of epic epicness. I was worried that it might not work as well, and that i'd have to return it and pay the extra 2 bucks for the original, but it surprised me. Ive only been using it for 2 days, and my face has calmed down quite a bit.

I also stopped by Kmart for some snackage and happened across their elf section. Im sure you guys know i love elf cosmetics, so of course i had to look through what they had. I wasnt expecting them to have as much stuff as they did (The last time i went they had a few rows of stuff like lip gloss and some shadow palettes). But i was really happy to see that they expanded their stock to the studio line as well :D

So, i grabbed some stuff:

[elf Tinted Moisturizer in Almond]

[elf All Over Cover Stick in Honey]

[N.Y.C Liquid Lip Shine in Pink Sand]

First up: the All Over Color Stick.

This stuff. Is reeeeeeally thick and creamy. It takes a bit more blending than other stuff ive used, but it definitely stays put. Since it's so hot out here, i thought it might melt off my face, but it doesnt. It doesnt cake up, or flake, or crease, or anything; especially if you set it with powder. It takes some work to wash off though.
The shade i have is a bit lighter than my usual concealer, so i might go back and by the next shade darker. Lol why not? It's a dollar ;D

Next: the Tinted Moisturizer.

I love it. I really do ♥
Because it's a TM, it's light and sheer, but not so much that you might as well not put anything on. I put it on for the day and took some pictures outside to test it out in the heat, and my GOD this stuff goes nowhere! After 10 minutes in direct sunlight my forhead started sweating, and when i wiped it with a towel, absolutely nothing came off. Its lasted me throughout most of the day without having to touchup any oily spots with powder, either. For $3.00, that's pretty darn good.

Last: the N.Y.C Lipgloss

Not much to say about this one, since it's just a lipgloss. It lasts for a good number of hours, even through eating and drinking which surprised me. Its a cute nudy pink shade, and it's not very sticky. Even better, it was $0.50!

Now then, a FOTD with the aforementioned products.. which means... PICS! (๑゚ヮ゚๑)

Funny thing about me camwhore-ing: by the time i finish looking through the pictures i end up hating my face and deleting practically all of them xD
