New ELF 'Good Vs. Evil' Beauty Book


Elf finally released the new LE Beauty Book! The 'Good Vs. Evil' collection is coming to Walgreen's. I got mine kinda by accident. I went to look for new Milani Gel liners and Lippies and I saw a Sales Associate setting up the display for ELF's collection. So yes I got to grab one :) So far they only had available the Beauty Book and Brush set (which I didn't really care for), plus some nail decorating kits and a compact mirror (which I took home with me). I did ask the lady working there if she knows if the collection will include the same eye shadow sets and bronzer/blushes/highlighters, lashes and makeup bags as the previous ones, she said probably yes and told me to come tomorrow to check. 

Here is a closer look on the book and a display :)
Pictures are form my instagram ------> click

The Book Contains ($9.99) :

Side Mirror in a shape of Rose

 6 neutral eyeshadows 'Day Beauty' ( Sunlight, Innocent, Briar Rose, Sunbeam, Forest Beauty, Woodland)

6 darker shades 'Night Villain' ( Sorcery, Magic Spell, Evil Fairy, Hedge of Thorns, Green Flames, Black Magic)

2 Elf Lip Colors ( Red - True Loves Kiss, Pink - Betrayal )

1 Black eyeliner pencil in Wicked

Plus  I also got a compact double side mirror for/by CONAIR ($3.99)

Nail Art Kits 

I must say I am deeply in love with this one! The cover of the book is amazing! and I am so happy to have it in my collection!

Vita Vox Box ~ Free Box from Influenster

Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Caplet Serum ~ Elizabeth Arden


Today's quick post will be about my free sample of Flawless Future Serum by Elizabeth Arden that I received free from Influenster for testing purposes.

The serum comes in a small (.17 fl oz  or 5 ml) glass bottle with pump. This unique liquid serum with caplet mini beads activates when dispensed, providing a refreshing burst that initially clings to skin and then dries to smooth weightless finish. Use it to even skin tone and reduce appearance of early signs of wrinkles.

But does it really work?

In my opinion and after using it I will say Yes!

I have to say I was super lucky to be one of the chosen for the #vitavoxbox.
I never use any Elizabeth Arden products. Why ? Because of the prices, I consider it LUXURY and well lets be honest with all things going on in my life I just couldn't afford it :(. But thanks to Influenster I was able to try it out and I loved it~

My skin is very sensitive, some products might a bit harsh on me. This serum was very gentle and it's not greasy at all. I started using it last week for the first time and I can already see some changes on my skin.

It feels smooth, soft, hydrated and looks more even. Really impressed with the product. I've been using it at night time but I will be switching to both day and night routine. Plus I also want to concentrate on the under-eye area (panda eyes don't look good on anyone) Also notice that my pores are less visible.

My final thought is that I am in love with it :) It is worth the money ($60 for 1.0 oz) and after I am done with my deluxe sample I will be purchasing a full size bottle. I will invest my $$$ into it.

If you ever consider buying this products, feel free to read more about it here---> Elizabeth Arden
