ELF Comparison

So, I opened my tiny package from ELF today and as soon as I opened the up the conditioning lip balms in Blissful Berry and Nice and Natural, I immediately thought about the L'Oreal Infallible in Lindas Beige and Revlon Soft Rose. Id say they seem to be a little bit of dupes.

They seem a bit similar eh? On to the swatches...

Pros: ELF Lip Balms
-$3 US dollars
-There are always promotion coupons
-Non sticky formula
-Very pigmented for a lip balm
Cons: ELF Lip Balms
-White flash back in the pictures due to SPF 15
-Not many shade selections 
-Pots are a bit tiny, may be hard to use your fingers
The Revlon Soft Nude (runs about $7-$8) is in deed a beautiful lipstick but to me seems to dry up my lips a tiny bit. The L'Oreal Infallible (runs $10-$12) stays on forever and claims to last up to 16 hours! You will need an oil based makeup remover to get this bad boy off. All L'Oreal Infallible Lipstains come a conditioning topcoat that is absolutely shiny and beautiful.

So if your looking for some what of a dupe, you should definitely check out the ELF lip balms. They dont break the bank! I actually love the lip balms more the Revlon lipstick. I do however LOVE the L'Oreal Infallible lip stain due to the long staying power. So it really depends on what you prefer. 

What do you think?

This semester and undoubtedly the next semester has been and will the hardest considering my little 4 month old. I won’t entirely be able to enjoy winter break since I am taking a class to cut my time so I can graduate sooner, however I will be 1 year and 1 semester behind (there’s a long story behind that). I am little disappointed in myself due to my grades but I am still so proud of myself for passing with a decent grade. I wonder how all these other mothers are making it with their little new borns while attending school; props to them because I struggled this semester. Now I have to kick up this Spring semester. Although I am disappointed, I will leave it in God’s hand. (=

Today was my wonderful day off work! I spent the afternoon with my lovely sister and browsed around a few stores and saw this little wall plague that said: “Faith makes things possible, not easy.” And I have to say that, this has been the 3rd time this week that I came across that saying. Lately, I have been stressing out about everything. But I have been really challenging myself, and I believe that He is too; challenging my faith in Him. It has been tough, but I know that He never fails, and NEVER slacks. So, continuing on I go.

Completely trusting in Him,
