This studio matte lip color comes in a twisty pen with a cap. When I first got it, tea rose was actually broken :(, but i dealt with it and melted it with a lighter and stuck it back together. On the bottom is a color coordination strip so you an tell which color is which :).
My lips are really pigmented so anything that covers my lips and gives them a different color is good :D. These remind me of MAC amplified lipsticks, but a little bit more wearable.
Coral: Semi bright orangey peach color; doesn't suit my skin color (NW25), looks really gross to me so i'd have to top it with a lipgloss or something
Tea Rose: My favorite out of all three that i have. It reminds me of Mac Saint Germain lipstick (which i don't have but seen tons of swatches) but a more wearable color. Its a dusty purple color with a hint of pink. I loveee this color.
These are super creamy and somewhat moisturizing but in the long run, it does dry my lips a little bit. Keep in mind that my lips are super dry and a little bit chappy sometimes.
There isn't a smell to this product which is good for me :).
All of these lip colors retail for $3 on the elf site and maybe at target if you live near one, but i don't because i live in Canada. The only place that retails elf cosmetics is winners, and they overprice it like three times.

First one up, Breeze 547B. Its a nice browny nude, almost the same shade as this year's Viva Glam Lady gaga lipstick, but with a really fine sliver sheen. It's a frost finish lipstick and its super moisturizing! Silky, smooth with a decent color payoff which is buildable btw. I personally would not use this all over my lips by itself because it looks wayyyy too frosty, but use it as an accent color or a color over another to change the finish.
I've been looking for a beautiful bright fuchsia color for the longest thing, but did i really want to shell out $20 + for something I'd wear for, iunno, less then a few times? Not really. So when something like this comes around, especially for only $1.57, I couldn't pass even if i wanted to.521A Fuchsia with Blue pearl, and yes the name does it justice. Exactly what it is, Fuchsia with a blue sheen. Although you can't really see the blue sheen, its there. Trust me :)Absolutely love love love this color. Its not as opaque as MAC amplified, but the color payoff after a few layers= Love :'). Somewhat sheer, but still gives me enough color to turn people's heads. Not bad if i do say so myself.
-product quality: A
-Overall quality: B++
-Buy again? Yes, as a matter of fact I'm going to buy all the ones i can get my hands on :).

-product quality: C
-Overall quality: C
-Buy again? No............Not worth it to me. I'd rather just use a highlighter if i want the "glow".
All of the perfumes come in a sleek white box with D&G logo in black. The only difference with each perfume is their numbers. I got confused because i thought it was like 1 to 16 or something XD. Like there are 16 perfumes, but there are only 5 perfumes with random numbers.
L'imperatrice in french means "empress". I can't exactly say the name suits the perfume, but ok? This perfume features the aromas of watermelon, kiwi, pink cyclamen and musk. To me this smells like fresh clean laundry, which i absolutely love. I always wished someone would just bottle up that scent into a perfume form. I would buy bottle after bottle if they did had a scent like that. Although this D&G perfume is exactly the soap smell i like, it does smell quite like that which a hint of sweetness. Now i am not a fan of those sickly sweet smells, so D&G did justice with this perfume. Although I do like the scent, the lasting power of this perfume sucks! I need to use at least 3-4 sprays just to get the full affect. I love the scent but if i use this everyday, it would be gone in less then a month! That's ridiculous. This is why kids, read on the label if its "l'eau de toilette" or "l'eau de perfume". L'eau de perfume is more concentrated and has a longer lasting power. Overall I do like this perfume, but i wish its lasting power was better.

If you don't know what Winners is, Winners is the same thing as USA's Ross. You basically play the game of chance. But when you find something you like, they usually sell it to you for a good deal. This time around, I was lucky enough to find my shade of color and it wasn't opened! Wow this must have been meant to be.It comes in a nice sleek packaging, glass bottle, a pump and a plastic cap that has CK logo on top.
The coverage is light to medium and goes on the skin quite nicely. It does take a little bit of time to smooth it out onto the skin (well compared to my skin 79 bb cream). I have to say this foundation is average, nothing really special. I won't buy it again. Maybe its because I have a fear of using foundations because, well to be frank i don't want to be a cake face. XD I usually just use MAC studio fix powder and a bit of concealer. I don't need much, but its nice to have a foundation at hand.
