E.L.F. Studio Blush Palette Review

blush1 blush2 blush3 blush4  {Light palette}
 
blush5 blush6
{Dark Palette}

When it comes to blushes, finding the perfect color and finish is super important to me. There has been plenty of times where i would get a blush (usually pink tone) and think OMG! this is going to be the perfect color! Then i get home and you cant even see it on my skin or it comes out super ashy. Then there is times i would get so many singles blushes to the point i run out of room to put them... That single product life!

With all that being said and you all reading my new world problems, i'm basically here to share with you my thought and feeling on a very under rated products and that would be the E.L.F. Studio Blush Palettes. 
I have been using these to palettes since they came out and i have been loving them. They do have some ups and downs but for the price, you really cant go wrong. In this review i will be covering these Points: Packaging, Product Review (with Pros & Cons) and My Final Thoughts. So lets get started. :)  

Packaging: These blushes come in a very light cardboard box cover, that has a true to color picture of the blushes on them. One you take the product out of the box the palette is very sleek and light weight but is a sturdy hard plastic.

Product Review: You can get these blush palettes in two tones, lights and darks and they are both the same price of $6USD each. They come with a full size mirror and four good size blushes, that are sure going to last you! Every blush is highly pigmented and only needs a little amount when applying. They do give you a nice variety of finishes with some being shimmery and some being Matte. But the finish doesn't bring down the quality of the product, which is a plus! You will notice that the blushes can be popped out to be mixed around or place into another of the same palette. Eventually im hoping they have a way so we can create our own palette. But if you owned E.L.F. blushes before from the studio line, you might come across some colors you already have and if you haven't this two palettes is really all you need.

Pros: quality, pigmented, finishes, price, mirror

Cons: hard to blend if a little to much is applied 

My Final Thoughts: If your starting out with makeup, need more blushes or building your makeup kit for clients, These are two perfect blush palettes that would work for any occasion and wont brake your bank. A big must Buy! #fashionshychildApproved

Bright Fog

Jacket: Forever21+ | Jeans: Forever21+ | Shoes: Torrid | Bag: Sanrio | Umberella: Target | Lips: MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass "Forever Rose"

Moving out here to the Valley i never would have thought it would be so foggy, raining and cold. But its not Summer or Fall anymore, i guess we can say. Winter time is truly showing its colors and spirit.
I decided to pull out my combat rain boots i bought at Torrid.com last year, my bright pink umbrella i bought from Target also last year and my very cute  Hello Kitty quilted black face bag. This outfit to me is like being a kid all over again, without trying to hard i think. But anyways how is the weather where you live? Is it looking like winter yet or are you in a place where its actually summer? Let me know! :)

Adovia Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream Review


anti age 
As i get older my skin has become more of a priority for me to keep it looking young. So finding and testing out skin care that works is key. If you are relatively new to my blog, this isn't the first Adovia product i have tried. I also tested out the Adovia Morning Day Cream and did a whole review for it here. So if that doesn't tell you i love the brand i don't know what will.
This Adovia Intensive Anti-wrinkle cream is a face cream i only use in the morning because i feel like it works best then. It leaves my face super moisturized without the feeling of being heavy or greasy... That i truly love since i have oily sensitive skin. It also works great as a base for your makeup. I would put this on my face than apply my foundation and it would go on super smooth. It also looks great wearing it alone. Iv notice when you wear it alone it makes it look like you have sometime of makeup on, when you really dont... Kind of like a blurring effect. The product also has a nice classy smell, not strong at all and can only really be smelt inside the jar. Also i really dont want to leave this highly important part out but a little goes a long way, so your cream will last longer.
I hope this review helped you out if your looking for a new face cream or anything in the anti-wrinkle department because starting out as soon as possible is key to keep the youthfulness of your skin. 
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Paragon Fine Art Website Review

This post brought to you by Fine Art Gallery. The content and opinions expressed below are that of FashionShyChild.

Searching the Internet i stumbled across an art retailer page called Paragon Fine Art. This Art Gallery website was different than any other i have ever came across, just with the front page itself. There is Disney Fine Art displayed on the very front page! Seeing this i had to stay longer and see what other cool art pieces they had to offer. Because when does Disney art ever gets displayed on the front page of an art gallery!?

So i went over to the artist section and there was so much more fun and expressive Fine Art For Sale. Like Tom Everhart "love is a drug", Michael Provenza "Pineapple Hill" and Glen Tarnowski "Possibilities. But my favorite would have to be the Rob Kaz limited edition prints. Which it kind of hard to explain but i can see my personality and feelings in the frogs eyes. Trying to find my place in the world and see where i fit in.

I've also notice that every Fine Art Gallery section has a good size picture displaying its color, textures and quality. There is also a title for the piece of art, what finish it is on, size and in a lot of cases a little description explaining the pieces meaning. I also had no trouble navigating my way around, since everything was labeled clearly and bright. Its a website worth checking out and I'm positive you would find something your interested in or captures your heart.
