Birds of a Feather: Purples (lipstick swatchfest #1)

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day πŸ™‚
Today I have for you a new feature! As you all know, I have a ridiculous amount of lipsticks and I’ve been recently trying to sort through my whole collection of makeup and really find & use my favorites! Therefore, what better way to catalogue things then by posting pictures for you guys? I call it “Birds of a Feather”, since they’re not really lipstick dupes but definitely cousins. Along the way, I hope to find my favorites as well as weed out the ones I don’t like as much. Today’s ‘birds’ are all the lipsticks I call purple!

e.l.f cosmetics haul! ~ The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

It’s been literally years since I’ve bought any e.l.f. products. I remember back in the day when their website was a clunker and they only had the $1 essentials line! The last time I bought from them I think was a Black Friday sale and a lot of their products seemed hit & miss for me. I hadn’t had a hankering for more e.l.f. stuff but since I’m always seeing more and more products added to their display at Target, that urge to try new products popped up again! Last week they were having a free shipping, no minimum so I took advantage and got a few things πŸ™‚
