chelmrtz said: Have you tried elf’s HD powder? It’s cheap at $6 but works like a charm and the packaging is way sturdier than this.

I’ve tried their HD powder that was meant for undereye, but it was too glittery. Is the face one like MUFE’s, do you think? When I had a sample of that, I found that it was so fine that I felt like I was enveloped in a cloud whenever I opening it. Maybe I’m a heavy breather? But I should try the e.l.f. when I run out, thanks!

Ideally I could just pop open one of these Maybelline jars and transfer the powder to another container, but it’s almost impossible to do that without shattering the jar and spilling everything.

This is my favorite translucent powder: Maybelline Mineral Power Finishing Veil. Fine, but not so fine I feel like I’m inhaling it; matte, but not too matte. Very soft and natural looking for setting foundation. But the packaging is shit! I’ve never traveled with it. It self destructs just sitting in a drawer.

If you’re a fan of Covergirl LashBlast like I am, you might also like this one. Similarly dryish formula, similar brush. It’s worked very well for me. Main difference is that it’s harder to remove. Get it on sale. Right now it’s half price ($5). #makeup #mascara #review #ulta #beauty #bbloggers

Yes! It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the big round black jar is conditioner, and it also came with foils of shampoo and hair oil, so I actually have SEVEN products to review for points this time! WHEEEE!

Posted on the blog recently about switching from Ipsy to #birchbox and I think I definitely made the right choice. Look at the huge products I got this time! And these are things I am actually interested in trying. #beauty #makeup #bbloggers #samples #skincare

This dry shampoo might be The One. I’ve tried other #batiste ones and found the fragrance unpleasant or overwhelming. This is just lightly fruity. Absorbs oil, no white residue, easy to use, adds some volume - no complaints! I recommend it for sure. (Life is hectic now so a quick Instagram/tumblr post when I can is probably all I’m going to manage for a while!)
