Fall out of the old and into the new

hey dolls!  haven't posted anything in a long time due to my schedule change in life.  just wanted to update you on the 2 big changes in my life.

first GREAT change that recently happened was that i chopped my hair!!  i broke down and got a cute asymmetrical bob.  lovin the new do and the fact that i don't have to spend a great amount of time on it anymore.  :)

second change that happened was that my baby girl, amelia, turned 1!!  can't believe it's been a year already.  flew by way too fast and she's such an independent, crybaby girl.  haha  but i LOVE her so much!

to end the post, wanted to show you the silly kids that i see every day that makes me laugh, smile, cry, yell and love my life.

ELF's Studio Makeup Mist & Set Review

hey ladies.  i'm back for the moment and wanted to share a new love of mine.

i was in target one day and i ALWAYS go check out the elf products they have.  i always have to get one their waterproof eyeliner pens.  i <3 that eyeliner as well.  but anyways, i saw way at the bottom, this spray.  wondering what it was, i pulled the package and read it.  it was their studio makeup mist & set.  OMG i had to try it.  it's only $3 so i thought, what's the harm?  after trying it for a week, i told my sister, kelly, about it, my sister-in-law and one of my friends.  it works really well and i love it.  so now, on to the review!

packaging: 3/5
elf doesn't have the best or the worst packing but it was nice and simple.  it's not sturdy enough so if you want to place the bottle back in there, the top kinda limps out on you.

quality of product: 5/5
i LOVE how this makes my makeup stay all day long. with the heat and humidity we get here in MN, it's good to know this spray makes your makeup stay and doesn't let the sweat streaks break in.

spray pump: 2/5
the sprays aren't consistant when you use it.  it's not a mist, that's for sure.  you get too much product on you so it somewhat feels like you're drowning in it.

scent: 1/5
i hate the smell so good thing it only lasts a while.  they should rework the scent on this spray.

so here's an overview of this product.

holds makeup all day
holds makeup through the heat and humidity
only $3

too much product comes out when you "mist" your face

i hope you ladies will give this product a shot.  and if you've tried this already, please let me know how you like it.  i'm already half way done with my bottle.  have a good weekend ladies!
