About ELF part 1

Yay, I've finally tried ELF products, real phenomenon because of its attractive prices! A lot of magazines mentioned that brand, and some of my friends too, so that's why I wanted to try ELF.

So first disadvantage... even if prices are very attractive, well delivery fees aren't xD. If you don't wanna pay delivery fees you have to buy an amount around 70 euros of products x__x.

Anyway, I bought these products:

- 4 "elf Essentials Brightening Eye Color" : Luxe, Drama,  Ethereal and Brownstone
- 1 Under Eye concealer & Highlighter
- 1 Waterproof eyeliner
- 2 Shimmer Eyeliner pencil
- 1 Mineral eyeshadow
- 1 gloss
- 2 lipsticks
- 1 contouring blush & bronzing powder
- several brushes and applicators
- 1 sunscreen powder UVA/UVB Protection
- 1 "All over color stick"
- 1 conditioning body butter

Let's try them!

Eyeshadow ==> Drama 10/10

Well, nothing to say, colors are great, they are easy to use, not really "dusty". I totally recommand that product!

Eyeshadow ==> Ethereal 6/10

Well as you can see on my picture, colors are not very "powerful" lol how could I say... The white one (number one) is more shiny than "Drama", it can be a good point... the orange (number 2), well I think you can't even see it LMAO xD, the pink one (number 3) is discreet but if you use it well with the color 4 you can get a wonderful make up! Number 4 is definitely one of my fav'! I could reorder that product just for the number 4! **in love**.

Eyeshadow ==> Brownstone 8/10

This one is perfect for a natural make up style! Be careful, colors are mat. But I think that at the end of the day if you don't adjust your make up once a day... it turns bland, you can look tired lol. So with this one, we readjust our make up.

Eyeshadow ==> Luxe 8/10

A very good product, but maybe a little complicated to "use" for me, I'm nut used to these colors so I don't really know what to do for now LMAO. But colors are gorgeous. The result is the same on my skin.

This article is already rather long because of pictures, and right now it's 1:00 am and because of my lights, my photos are not very good (colors). I will show you the other products in an other post. Concerning eyeshadow (powder), no problem with ELF, you can order! Awsome to get a lot of eyeshadow colors.

January Nail Art

Still lazy, my nail art of January is very simple : gold (because I wanted something festal to celebrate New Year) with black lines are and a little strass. At the beginning strasses were rather orange/gold but now we can't really see the right color anymore.

Happy New Year 2011!

My sweet bloggies, I wish you a Happy New Year!!!

Hope you had a great time with people you love, family, friends or boy/girlfriend. What's the tradition in your country? In France, most part of people goes to parties and dance/drink all night long. So January 1st is very difficult lol, everybody is exhausted x__x. But to be honest, I prefer to stay at home with people I love the most. Of course we did something special and we had fun, but it was very peaceful.

What about 2010? Well my resolution was to do more sport... but I didn't xD. During 2010, I took a gap year because I really needed a break to focus on myself and my futur. I was so happy to spend so much time with my family! I love them so much!!!

One of my dream has come true: I went to Japan! I met amazing people, it was so rewarding! I'm so thankful! As I had a lot of free time, I started to study japanese by myself at home, and then in Tokyo I went to a special school, it makes me fall in love with this language. Then, in September I decided to study japanese in a french University in Paris, but it was a mistake, result : 2011 is gonna start with failed exams. Why a mistake? Because it is located in Paris, because we are too numerous so they have to be very demanding, so demanding that it makes you drive crazy. I don't want japanese to become a chore... But don't worry, I'm already graduated... I'm just very disappointed... I'm gonna go to University until June and then I don't know... maybe going to Japan again and longer. I'm gonna quit Uni but I'm not giving up with japanese. Or maybe I will do a last year at school to get licence (tourism?), or I will join corporate world... don't know, I'm rather lost.

I also got my driving licence... some of you would like to say : FINALLY!!! Because, yes, I'm very scared about driving... I hate it! It was a real challenge! The driving exam was such a nightmare...

Of course, a lot of other things happened, but I can't write everything here, because it's gonna be a huge article xD, so stop here! But let's do our best to make 2011 a great year.

Gift time again lol. In France we use to have "étrennes" which are a kind of Christmas bonus. I get the DVD of Sex and the City 2 (I loooooove it, I can't wait to go back to mum's place to watch it with her ;) thank you again), and also Ayumi Hamasaki - Arena Tour 2009 - NEXT LEVEL's DVD and Namie Amuro Past Future Tour 2010 (I've nerver watched one of her concerts). I have a lot of things to watch x) but first... EXAMS!!!!
