Elise Sabak: The Beauty Breakdown

If you're as addicted to beauty as I am, we're going to be great friends.

So, I spent most of my father’s day outside and with my unbelievably pale skin, it was only natural that I burned a little. So yesterday when my Vox Box arrived, I was so glad to see the after sun lotion which didn’t smell as strange as I expected and was quite soothing. The nail polish also looks great. I like Sinful Colors because it is a good formula for the price. I was SO worried about the color but it looks nice on my light skin. I have yet to try the Covergirl mascara but I’m hopeful it will be amazing!

Uni Vox Box

I recently received this Uni Vox Box from Influenster. It was packed with all kinds of interesting things, my favorite, of course, being the beauty products. The Rimmel Matte foundation has been amazing! I’m wearing it as we speak! I certainly recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive but great quality matte foundation. The NYC lipstick was interesting. That isn’t a brand I usually buy, but the pigment and staying power was impressive. It was difficult to remove though.

April Ipsy Bag

I was so happy to see the best eyeliner EVER in my April Ipsy bag! Urban Decay eye pencils are so velvety. The “white gold” pot is interesting. It’s ultra shimmery but worked so well as a base for my eyeshadow.

March Ipsy Bag!

I know, I know. February got skipped. It’s ok, because I’m super thrilled about the contents of this bag. A berry hued Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie lipstick, a shocking blue felt-tip liner, a Pixi primer, and a NYX Love in Rio eyeshadow palette graced my March bag. The primer and palette are already loves of mine, but only time will tell how I feel about the liner/lipstick.

To Purchase or Not to Purchase?

Has anyone tried this product? I’ve heard mixed reviews and am wondering if it will be worth it.

Short skin breakdown: I have relatively oily skin (more combination in winter) and am currently fighting acne/the dark spots that’ve stayed behind.
