Tokidoki Gelato Balm and E.L.F Hypershine Gloss

I was in the city on Saturday and although my conscious was screaming "NO!!!!!!!!!!!" i went into Sephora anyways. I did really well, restrained myself from spending (being jobless will do that to ya) and only walked out with one item, which well, i didn't even pay for because my boyfriend treated me =)


 I have been lusting after the Tokidoki Gelato Lip Balm Stains for awhile now. Seriously, how cute is the packaging? I picked Donutella, it's a sheer deep pink and smells absolutely delicious. The balm itself is so smooth and the color lasts for quite awhile. I am such a big fan of lip stains/tints, they add such great color for those like me who look silly wearing lipstick. I will for sure be going back to buy the other three shades.
I apologize for the lighting of this swatch, it looks more like a curling iron burn than a lip product haha.

My swatch order is backwards from the picture on the left, oops!

I was in Zellers not to long ago and came across an E.L.F section in the cosmetic department. I have never seen this brand in stores here, all the racks were empty except for a lip gloss set. For $2.50, i figured why the heck not. 

The set came with three colors, none of which had a name. All three have a very lovely smell and great shine. The formula is not sticky, which is a huge bonus. There is nothing worse than when a lipgloss is super sticky and your hair gets in it, then your hair is gooey. So annoying.

All the colors look really great on, they added a really soft tint and went really great with my skin color.

For those of you that have Facebook, i have decided to do a jewelry giveaway as soon as i reach 100 people! If you haven`t already, please go like my page and tell your friends!

What a sweet boyfriend. Mines the same. He bought me the Urban Decay primer potion since there was no way I could ever talk myself into spending $18 on one little thing lol.

I love the lightest pink lip gloss by Elf..need to see if I can find that one at one of the stores here.

Yay for a giveaway!

I recently got a pack of ELF lip glosses from Winners and was really happy with them - the colors all looked nice on and the gloss was just the right amount of sticky for my liking.

Hi Kenzie! I haven't heard of Okotos but wow, that's crazy how many deer there are right now this year. Hmmm....I wonder why such an influx.
Oh I didn't know Zellers carries Elf products. I was wondering where all the Canadian bloggers get their Elf finds from LOL Did you know a lot of the Zellers in Canada will be replaced with Target? I don't know of any Zellers nearby me anymore....so I don't have any Elf products but the swatches look gorgeous.
I was going to get a Tokidoki lip balm stain as well! I love how they're so moisturizing with flavour yet the pigmentation is really nice too :)

I LOVE their packaging and have actually never tried their makeup before!
That was nice of your man to treat you with this. I love getting little things like that from my guy, too.
Do you live close to Calgary, where abouts?
P.S. Thanks for the award!
