Lip Love Monday: ELF Studio Lip Balm SPF 15

I know I have been MIA for quite a bit but I had reasons which I won’t really get into. I am back and today I will talk about some ELF lip products I purchased a while ago. The Studio Lip Balm SPF 15 in the shades Nude, Peach & Pink.

I am always trying out lip products that’s no secret. I have an obsession although I don’t have a huge collection I do keep adding, hey what can I say it’s my weak spot. As you also probably know my lips tend to get really dry so I normally go for anything that will give my lips moisture and a hint of color. When I saw these online I was a bit skeptical so I didn't pay much attention, that’s until I went to the ELF store in SOHO and I got to test them out on my hand and felt the moisture and consistency of the lip product. So I decided to give it ago and bought three shades for $3 not bad huh.


The packaging does look pretty fancy as well lol…packaging is a black sleek and matte tube with a ring around the middle that sort of tells you the color of the balm. I didn’t think they would show much on my naturally pigmented lips but they are some one pigmented, the colors are very buildable. The lip balm goes on smooth and feels very moisturizing and minty. I do feel like they go on a bit splotchy though. The product smells like mint and it does not have any taste. I tried it lol... It stays on the lips for about 2-3 hours without having heavy meal after which the shine goes off and leaves a pretty stain on the lips. I love that my lips don’t feel dry after the balm wears off and I also like that it has SPF to protect against sun damage. I would repurchase these again. Thinking about getting the other colors I didnt get :-)

March 2014 Birchbox

Thursday already, this week went by so quickly, well at least for me it did :-). So yesterday, I got my March Birchbox and wanted to share with you what I got and my first impressions of it.

I didn't really talked or posted anything on my February Birchbox because I wasn't to excited about what I got. So here is what I got this month:

1. A treat form GHIRARDELLI, this cherry tango square chocolate was so good obviously I ate it right after opening my box and taking the above picture lol...
2. Lifestyle Extra: Jurlique Herbal Recovery eye cream, I love trying out eye creams mainly because I have dark circles and a dry undereye area, so I am always in the search for what might be a miracle cream the works wonders for me. I have tried good creams that help out but nothing that has totally wowed me, so ill let you know how this eye cream works out for me. I totally did wish this sample came in a tube as oppose to a little pouch, oh well.
3. Curly Hair Solutions says it keeps curls shiny, defined and frizz-free this I have to try, my hair is so complicated specially when its curly so if this works out I will let you guys know and defenitly purchase a full size bottle.
4. Gilchrist & Soames London Collection Body Lotion, this smells awesome. I tried it right away it is very moisturising, fast-absorbing and smells heavenly. I threw it in my purse already lol...

5. Jurlique Herbal Recovery Nigh Cream, loved this phrase "you snooze, you win" this cream is suppose to restore and firm your skin all while you sleep, defenitly a must try can't wait.
6. Lastly theBalm How 'Bout Them Apples? Cheeck & Lip Cream, the packaging is so cute, well you guys know my obssession with anything that has to do with lips, so I tried it out right away. I will let you know my thought some other time :-)

I have to say I did love this month box and the treat was delish, who doesn't love chocolate.

What did you get in your subscription boxes this month?
