My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

Elf Makeup Mist and Set vs. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

Thursday, 10 July 2014

ELF is known for decent quality cheaply priced makeup, I find a lot of their products are hits with me. The ELF makeup mist and set is infused with cucumber, aloe, green tea and vitamins A,C and E. Urban Decay is infamous for their Naked Palettes and their setting sprays. The All Nighter Setting Spray promises to keep makeup in place throughout the night.

ELF Makeup Setting Spray
Product Description:
Retailing for $3 this Mist and Set is lightweight and comfortable and prevents colour from running or fading. Available here

My thoughts:
I have had this product for over a year, and I usually forget to use it. I find it has more cooling properties then setting, meaning I use it in the summer to mist and refresh instead of setting my makeup. While I do not notice a difference in my makeup wear while I use this product I do like it to keep cool.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
Product Description:
Designed with temperature control technology this product is designed to lower the temperature of your makeup. It is also Oil and Paraben Free. $30 for a full size available here

My thoughts:
Overall I like this product. I use it most days, and I do find that it holds my makeup in place throughout the day and into the night. Applying it in an X and T motion it does really target areas where makeup can breakdown. I would advise using this product before you apply mascara as it can make it stick under your eyes if it is still wet.

I highly recommend the Urban Decay one to really set your makeup and the ELF one more to cool off!
