Review: LA Colors Mineral Eyeshadows

 LtoR: Purple, Black, Beige, White, Teal
no primer/base

OK beauties these are the mineral eyeshadow from LA Colors and let me tell you, these babies are the horses new shoes!!! Just simply AMAZING!!  They can be found at most Dollar Tree stores and also at  They are $1 a piece and worth every red cent! You get 0.08oz of perfectly pigmented product (try saying that three times in a row)  The purple one is the only one I wouldn't purchase again.  They pigmentation is not good at all.  The other ones have a crazy color payoff and I use them on a regular basis!  My overall opinion is that you need at least one of these shadows in your collection.  If I had to pick a favorite, I'd choose the black one because it is one of the blackest blacks in my collection.  These shadows get Ladybugg's beauty stamp of approval!!

Review: ELF Essential Eye Primer

LtoR: Gold, Pearl, Sheer 
OK beauties this product right here has to be one of my faves in my collection! I mean these primers are just simply the cat's pajamas!! I'm talking about the ELF eye primers!  Oh yes the $1 ones!!!  You can find these right now at or most Target stores are carrying ELF right now.  Right now at my local Target you can get all three in a little gift set for $3! You get 0.17oz worth of pure amazingness!!  Now ELF also has a primer that is $3 and I did a little experiment by putting the $1 primer on one eye and the $3 primer on the other and after a long day, both eyes still looked the same.  You can get all three for the price of one! The gold one is perfect for neutral looks, the pearl one is perfect for making your brighter colors pop, and the sheer one is perfect for any look. Now I have seen and read a lot of beauty gurus compare this product to Urban Decay primer potion however I do not personally own an UDPP so I can't agree nor disagree with that claim.  (if you go to YT and search UDPP vs.ELF you can see for yourself)  My overall opinion is that you should definitely have this product in your collection!!

Review: Kleancolor American Eyedol Baked Shadow

 LtoR: Matte Purple, Taupe, Moss, Terracotta
no primer/base

OK beauties these shadows are the bees knees!!! I purchased mine at my local beauty supply for $1.29 and you can also go to the Kleancolor site, however the price on the site is $2.99.  You get 0.15oz of product.  I have 10 of them and I love every single one of them and I plan on owning the entire collection!  The majority of them are very shimmery(I love shimmer) but the do have a couple that are strictly matte!  Like most baked shadows these can be used wet or dry.  I did use one wet and it was amazing however the shadow didn't have the same consistency after I used a wet brush on it.  So I wouldn't recommend using these particular shadows wet.  I use them dry and I have no problems with them!  My overall opinion is that you should have at least one of these shadows in your collection! This product gets Ladybugg's beauty stamp of approval!

Review: Ruby Kisses All Over Bronzing Powder

OK beauties this product is AMAZING!!!  It is the perfect product for the summer to give you that summery glow that you desire! It does have some golden shimmers in it but it is not overwhelming and it doesn't make you look like a disco ball.  The shade shown is in Deep Glow.  I paid $3.99 for it at my local supply and you get 0.32oz.  You can also purchase this product online at  You have four different shades to choose from.  This product reminds me a lot of the Mac MSF Natural that retails for $27 however you get a little bit more product (0.35oz) and with the Mac you have a larger selection of colors.  My overall opinion is that this product should be apart of your collection! This product gets Ladybugg's stamp of beauty approval.
