Review: Ellana Mineral Cosmetics Lip & Cheek Gel

If you like bringing makeup with you wherever you go, you would definitely need products that are travel-friendly. You could opt to go with products that have a double purpose to save space in your makeup bag or pouch. An example would be a lip and cheek stain just like the Ellana Mineral Cosmetics Lip & Cheek Gel in Amethyst which I got from my January-February 2014 BDJ Box: Change It Up! 😀

Product Description (taken from the Ellana Mineral Cosmetics website):

One of our bestsellers, the Lip & Cheek Gel gives a gorgeous, rosy glow that lasts the whole day. It delivers a sheer and beautiful no-makeup look while moisturizing your skin. It doesn’t dry quickly, giving you enough time to blend it evenly on your cheeks.

The bottle does not have a cap included but you can twist the pump to lock it and prevent it from accidental spillage when you keep it inside your makeup pouch.

Here is a swatch of the Ellana Mineral Cosmetics Lip & Cheek Gel in Amethyst.

This product is super pigmented that you will just need a really small amount particularly if you are going to use this as a cheek stain. This does not dry up easily so you can have enough time to blend it on your cheeks. I like that this product could give a natural, rosy glow on my cheeks and it stays put the whole day.

BDJ Box Bruno Mars Challenge Day #5

Do you remember this post? For me, it is a very special post because it is my first ever makeup review here in my blog. It is for the Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek in Shell Pink Cream. If you get to visit that post, you will notice in the end part that I added a video link of Ms. Barbi Chan talking about how to apply blush properly. It is the first ever makeup video tutorial that I got hooked into when I started my interest in makeup and, definitely, my favorite editorial feature in the BDJ Box website (which would answer the BDJ Box’s Bruno Mars Challenge Day # 5). It is through this tutorial that I was able to learn how to apply blushes without looking like a clown. Haha! 😛

For a recap, here is Ms. Barbi Chan’s makeup video tutorial about the different types of blushes and how to apply them properly.

BDJ Box: Unboxing My January-February 2014 BDJ Box: Change It Up!

Hi!!! 😀 This is going to be my first BDJ Box unboxing post for the year! This is for my January-February 2014 BDJ Box: Change It Up! 😀 This is actually my third BDJ Box. The first time is for my BDJ Box Elite: Girls Night Out and the second one is for my September BDJ Box: Luminescent Beauty. So, let’s start unboxing… 😀

I actually love all the items inside the box. 😉 Well, it even went beyond my expectations because it has a separate item which is not inside the usual BDJ box.
