Makeup Monday - e.l.f. Cosmetics

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  Each Monday I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  



WEEK 28 - e.l.f. Blush


Hi friends, I hope you all had a nice weekend.  I had to find out about all the hype on e.l.f. cosmetics, and by the way e.l.f. stands for eyes lips face!  I had been seeing so much on Pinterest and on beauty blogs about their cosmetics and never tried them before.  I decided to go to Target recently to buy some things that my family and I needed and discovered that Target sells their line of makeup.  

I decided to buy just one item since I have never used any of their makeup before.  I bought their blush and I love the color I bought - it is called tickled pink.  It looks good on my skin and goes good with my blonde hair.  The blush is a light subtle color and it gives a soft and natural look.  




I'm very happy with this blush and I would recommend it to you and you can't beat the price at $3.00.  The size and the packaging reminds me of the blush I just bought recently from NARS and I paid $30 for it!  To see that blog post in case you missed it, you can click HERE.  To see the link for the e.l.f. website you can click HERE.  To see how to purchase this blush from Target you can click HERE.  

Here is the description on the back of the box for the blush:  The soft sheer texture blends into the skin for a silky finish.  Designed to be worn alone or layered for more depth.  Highlight your complexion with a subtle healthy glow.

Have you tried any e.l.f. cosmetics?  I hope I was helpful and maybe inspired you to try their makeup!

Tomato Pie Recipe

I have a healthy recipe for Tomato Pie that I would love to share with you and it's a great way to use up left over tomatoes grown from the summer.  

This dish is great served with a salad on the side.  It can be used as an appetizer also.






TOMATO PIE RECIPE

Serves 4 - 6 people

INGREDIENTS:

2 to 3 large tomatoes
1 small bunch of red onions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 to 1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 9-inch wide deep pie shell

DIRECTION:

Preheat oven to 350 degres F.  Slice tomatoes into thick slices.  Place them in layers into the pie shell, sprinkling each layer with onion, basil, salt and pepper.  Mix together the mayonnaise and the cheese.  Spread the mixture over the tomatoes.  Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, until filling is browned.  Remove and allow to sit for 10 minutes before cutting into slices to serve.

Done!

Pillow Vote & The "Drinking Game"

Hi friends, the vote is in and most of you all love decorative pillows you your bed!  This is a photo of my Mom's guest bedroom at her house.  In case you missed this post you can see it HERE.  

I love extra decorative pillows on the bed and how pretty it makes the bed look.  What I do not like is setting up the bed and pillows in the morning and taking them off at night and that is why I only have 4 needed pillows on my bed.




This weeks #Mommy Reality Challenge - Week #18 What is your favorite beverage or drink?

I'm joining today Jen from JENerally Informed and Celeste from Leapfrog and Lipgloss for Mommy Reality Challenge #18.  I will be linking this up to Jen's and Celeste's fun link party.  Each week they pick a fun theme or topic and you share your photos there.


My favorite drink in the afternoon is Starbuck's coffee made in my french press.  I have a new schedule and I'm awake each morning at 5:30am (OUCH!) so by the afternoon I need a quick pick me up!  This is my favorite and does the trick.

Makeup Monday - Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeliner

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  Each Monday I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  



Week 27 - Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeliner



Hi friends, and welcome back to Makeup Monday Week 27.  I hope you all enjoyed the pretty fall weekend we just had.  Today I'd like to share with you the new eyeliner I bought from Target.  I was so excited to try out this new eyeliner that my daughter has been using and liked so much.  It's called Rimmel Scandal Eyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner - waterproof.  This eyeliner looks fabulous on my teenage daughter and shows up nice and thick on her eyes.  I tried this eyeliner and it works well on my eyes when I use it with my eye primer from Urban Decay.  I usually use an eye crayon from Avon but thought it was fun to try out this type of eyeliner.  The eyeliner is similar to a thin magic marker.  I bought it in Target and paid $5.49 for it and it's available in most drug stores.  The color of the eyeliner is 001 Black.

To see the post where I mention one of my favorite eyeliners from Avon you can click HERE.

To see the link for this eyeliner and reviews you can click HERE.

Have you tried this eyeliner yet and did it work for you?

I have a blogger friend who blogs about makeup and beauty and I love all of her makeup reviews.  She writes about the latest makeup trends and is always honest about a product.  Kim has a fun blog and if you love makeup like I do then please visit Kim from A Very Sweet Blog when you get a chance!  

Two weeks ago I did a blog post about Makeup Brushes and in case you missed that post you can see it HERE.  Last week Kim wrote a review on Sephora Makeup Brushes that might be helpful and to see that post you can click HERE.

Infinity Scarf and Hand Warmer Set

Hi friends, I have been so busy with preparing for our annual Fall and Christmas knit and crochet sale that we have at our church.  The sale is held at our church each fall the weekend right before Thanksgiving.  I have here my latest crochet project that I just finished.  

It's an Infinity Scarf and Hand Warmers Set!


I really like this black yarn with the different colors - green, red, blue, yellow and purple mixed in with it.  I had one skein of this yarn but it did not have any label on it so I think it might be Red Heart yarn.  

I think this is the perfect set to keep you warm this winter and hopefully someone will want to purchase it!

To see my simple Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern you can click HERE.

To see my simple Hand Warmers Pattern you can click HERE.

I will show you the crocheted Headband I just finished making that goes with the set soon.

Have you been working on any winter crochet or knit projects?  I hope I have inspired you to make something for winter.  These type of sets also make great holiday gifts.

Makeup Monday - Boots No7 Makeup Favorites

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  Each Monday I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  


Week 26 - Boots No7 Makeup Favorites

Hi friends, I hope you all had a nice weekend.  Today I would love to share with you some of my favorite makeup from Boots No7.  I first discovered this makeup last summer when I took a vacation with my family to England.  To see about my trip to England you can click HERE.  I  really love this makeup and I'm happy to say that it is sold now in the US in the drugstore Duane Reade and Walgreens and you can buy it on line at Amazon.



1.  Blush Tint Stick in the color Clove - $9.99 - This blush glides and blends in well on your cheeks.  You just have to dot a little on your cheeks and blend it with your fingers.  It leaves a nice natural glow and I like the way it looks.

2.  Airbrush Away Primer - This primer works well with all foundations and moisturizers.  It gives your skin a nice glow and good base for your BB cream or foundation.  It makes your makeup last longer and skin look smooth.  I received this as a sample size of 10 ml. and I'm not sure of price.

3.  Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser -  This tinted moisturizer has SPF 15 and 5-Star UVA protection and gives your skin sun protection along with vitamin A and E.  I received this as a sample size of 10 ml.  and not too sure of the full price.  This is a really nice tinted moisturizer that I love since it has SPF in it too.

4.  Stay Perfect Foundation in the color Cool Beige - This is a foundation that is mixed with a pressed powder.  I love this flawless finish it gives your skin and it has an SPF of 15.  This comes with a mirror and sponge in the bottom compartment to apply foundation.  This is one of my favorite foundations that I love using in the fall and winter.  

5.  Stay Perfect Eyeshadow - I think this color is violet shine and this is also a sample size.  This is a pretty shade that compliments any eye color.  It has little shine particles in the eye shadow.  I received this as a sample and sure of the price.

6.  High Shine Lip Gloss - Coral Kiss - $7.99 - This is a moisturizing lip gloss with an SPF of 15.  I love the color and that it has sun protection in it too.  There is no sticky feeling on the lips and gives a light gloss look.  


I hope I have inspired you to try Boots No7 makeup and thanks for stopping by today.
