elf Aqua Blush in Pink Beige/Bronzed

I have another blush palette! I’ve been using it (as you can see, lol). I chose this palette because it was on sale, haha. But also, I needed darker colors. I was there at the right time. 😉 The other one I have from elf is…

Elf St Lucia Blush Bronzer

The colors in the second palette shown look very pretty, especially the color on the left. It’s a peachy shade that looks really natural on my cheeks. It’s subtle but gives my cheeks a pop of color. They’re nice, but I wanted something more bold. I love changing up my colors one day to the next. It makes things more exciting and fun.

I really like elf blushes and bronzers. They’re in a portable compact that’s easy to open and use. The colors compliment each other very well. They work. It’s pigmented enough and shows up on my skin. Works just the same or even better compared to more expensive blushes and bronzers. I would repurchase in the future. 🙂

Have you used elf blushes or bronzers? Did they work for you?

Review: Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars

Orgain Organic Protein Bars Review

Here’s my review on Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars. You know, I’m glad I gave these protein bars a second chance. This time, I really liked them. I was eating Clif Bars before this. I love Clif Bars, but it contains a lot of sugar. They’re awesome as a pre or post-workout snack though. I’ve read many reviews saying that Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars are very sweet. They’re actually not compared to Clif Bars. I noticed a decrease in sweetness when I switched over. Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars are a little bit more grainy. It’s something I’ve gotten used to by now. At first, it was weird, lol. They’re not that bad at all. Taste-wise, my ranking of the flavors (ones that I purchased) are…

  1. Cookie Dough
  2. Peanut Butter
  3. S’mores

S’mores was the sweetest out of the bunch, which is funny because it has 1 more gram of sugar compared to Cookie Dough (not a significant amount anyways, just mentioning it). Overall, I like these protein bars. 140 calories per bar with 10 grams of protein. It’s easier to portion control with them. I felt more satisfied and full when I eat these. With the Clif Bars, meh. It felt more like a candy bar with protein due to the high sugar. I would buy Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars again. I’m really happy with them this time around. I wish they would produce more flavors. It gets really boring when I only have four flavors to choose from.
