e.l.f. Review, the Good

There is actually only one thing that I really loved from e.l.f.
I like the powder eyeshadows but to me, eyeshadow is all the same.  I still need to use a primer AND a sealer for my eyeshadow to stay. 
The one thing I really love is the Mascara Primer.
It does exactly what it is advertised to do, lengthen and volumize.
I always use this primer before I apply mascara unless I'm trying to go for a really natural look.
It adds a lot of length and volume, great for dramatic or dolly looks!
Bare lashes
With primer

Adds length and volu
Doesn't make lashes feel heavy
Great price ($3)

Takes long to apply

e.l.f. Review, the Bad

So as you seen in my post below, I recently bought many things from e.l.f.
I bought about 40 things so I need to break up the review.  I decided to make a post about the disappointing things, the decent things, and the things that I really liked.

The first thing that really disappointed me was the nail polish I bought.
This is what the colors look like on the website:
Metal Madness, Teal Blue, and Punk Purple

This is what I received:
I was happy with the color of the Teal Blue nail polish.  The colors of the Metal Madness and the Punk Purple nail polishes were not what I was expecting.
The color of the Metal Madness I received was too dark.  On the website the color was much more silver and metallic.  The one I received was more of a glittery gun metal.  I did like the color of this one but I would have preferred the advertised color.
The Punk Purple nail polish I received was not purple at all!  It was more of a crimson.  The color of the nail polish on the website was more of a dark fuchsia.

Aside from the off-coloring, the application was very good.  It went on smooth and was not streaky.  It also dried quickly.

Easy and even application
Dries quickly
Coloring on 2 out of 3 were off

Rating: 3/5 (It would be a 5/5 if the colors matched the advertised color)

I was also disappointed with one of the false eyelashes I purchased.
(The top one in the photo below)
They look very nice!
This is what I received:
They are not evenly spaced.  There is a large noticeable gap in the lashes on the left.
I was not pleased with this at all.  

Easy to apply

Uneven spacing
The glue isn't strong (I had to use a different eyelash glue because the glue it came with would peel at the ends)

Rating: 2/5 (It did not look nice and the glue is a significant component that did not work well.)

Nails of the day

Hiii <3
This is my very first beauty post!  It's going to be a NOTD post.  I actually don't do my nails every day so I guess it should be called a nails of the week or maybe even nails of the week and a half lol.
Anyway, I got the design from a YouTube channel.
Subscribe to her if you love cute and easy nail designs!
It's Pikachu!  

It was really quick and simple!
You do not need any fancy dotting tools or nail art brushes.
I used the back of a make-up brush to do the cheeks and the eyes, a toothpick for the inner white dots in the eyes, and an eyeliner brush to create the nose and the mouth(:
Good luck!

First blog entry

Hi! If you're reading this, you're reading my first ever blog entry^^
I created this blog so I can openly talk about the things I love.
I am a make-up addict so you can expect a lot of posts about make-up.
I absolutely love Japanese beauty products, fashion, food, etc.
I adore all things that are kawaii, girly, and frilly.
Now, you must be thinking, "Gosh this girl probably only cares about make-up and shopping," but I like other things too.  I do not spend all of my time shopping or putting on make-up.  I actually spend more time playing a video game called World of Warcraft.  I may blog about my experiences on the game from time to time.
I hope that many people follow me.  I would love to have giveaways and contests when I get many subscribers.
Please take care of me!
