I got this Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm from my Birchbox and I am so obsessed with the color. It’s super pink in color and goes on like a traditional lip balm. They carry this brand at Target, but I’ve never bought anything from the line as it’s a bit more pricey than your average drugstore brand. The color I got is called Pixi Pink and I’d definitely recommend this for my fellow fair skinned ladies. The color is also long lasting —I think I only reapplied it once during the day.
I finally went over to elf store and made actual purchases. I’ve been in there a couple other times and have been in a hurry so I’ve never taken the time to really look around. elf is very much a cult favorite beauty brand. It’s super cheap but somehow the products are actually amazing quality. I bought 3 things, as you’ll see, and my total was $9. That’s insane. For the most part, I’ve only ever seen the brand at Target. And in NYC, Target is hard to come by. Plus the selection is usually picked over. I’m so happy that elf has a store, now I need NYX to open up shop!
So here is what I bought:
Volume Plumping Mascara: I like this product but it’s not great. Worth the $3 I spent for maybe a casual weekend look. I like a dramatic looking mascar and this is definitely creates a more subtle eye.
Rose Red Matte Lip Color: I am in love with this color. I’ve worn it twice and have gotten so many compliments on the color. It’s a great formula too, it’s long lasting and not drying.
Retractable Lip Brush: Haven’t opened this up yet (lazy) but I’ve been wanting to try a lip brush for when I use darker colors.

Here is my tale of woe: I went to Target hoping to find one of the items I blogged about the other day. When I got there the selection was poor at best. Not because it was shopped, but the Target just didn’t get very good pieces. They had a few t-shirts and two different dresses, it was pathetic. Needless to say, I’m quite disappointed. I can remember being excited for every featured designer for Target and never really being let down by selection. So, sorry for my whiney post. Maybe I’ll just order this blouse like I said I would, in the first place. Did anyone else have a bad experience? Or a good one? Let me know!
So in honor of Jason Wu’s February 5th arrival date, I am including my favorites from his collection. I had my heart set on this white blouse with a black ribbon (below), but I’ve just found out that it’s an online exclusive. I’m so discouraged about it because getting my blouse size is so tricky, plus it’s juniors sizes, etc, it’s just not fair. That being said, I must get something from the collection on Sunday. So I’m trying to decide what I’ll purchase. Here are my options, I’d love your suggestions!
