Simple... Is Good Right?

So this is pretty much my everyday look - very little on the eyes. Decent liner and mascara showing and, of course, a nice colored cheeks w/ a cute lip color.

Some of you will probably think this look is boring - and it is. But it is so awesome for school. I'm averaging 10 mins for my make up in the morning - which is so nice!

This is the time when I had the worst skin EVER! And honestly I still have pretty bad skin now too... I don't really know what I'm doing wrong but oh well. But in this pic, I had gotten a zit right in the middle of my NOSE! Yeah, the highest plane of my face, fate decided to stick a gross old cystic zit right in the middle!

On my lips, I have one of my favorites: WnW's Megalast lipstick in Rosebud!

A Mini Review:

ELF Zit Zapper
Ingredients: ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Salicylic Acid 1%

OTHER INGREDIENTS: Water, Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) Distillate, Alcohol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Laureth-7, Cinnamomum Camphora (Camphor) Bark Oil

Sorry for the picture, I couldn't get a good one or find a better one so... whatever!!!

Like I mentioned above, I have pretty terrible skin now and I'm not sure what it causing it but I did purchase this little thing, hoping that it would help me out.

Now, this is not an overnight miracle work... but I find that if I use this on those annoying, painful, gross, cystic acne, it actually works really well! I think it takes the 'Zapper' three days to fully get rid of it and that is awesome. I don't know about you guys but my cystic acne tends to stay put for a week... even more. Thus, having it gone and done with in three days (usually three days!), I am happy!! Like that zit on my nose, it disappeared in 3 days... no trace or anything!

Applicator is like a roller... which is good so that you don't have to deal with messy liquid but sometimes the roller gets stuck!

Now, as for the tinier ones... I don't know why but it doesn't really help with that. Maybe somebody can explain to me...

But anyways, this thing works for me. I wish it was a miracle worker and just make it all go away. Alas, this item, being only $1, is good enough for now.

OH BTW - it smells a little weird. I think it's because of the camphor in this thing. I know b/c we synthesized camphor in lab and the smell was horrible. Don't worry, it's not gonna suffocate you or make you gag or whatever. You will just notice it for a bit and then it goes away.


  1. Yes, Simple is best. You have very good skin, I guess you have yet to see bad skin... I have seen many in my make-up artistry gig days! You have beautiful skin, trust me!

  2. Simple looks are definitely great for school!

    And aww sorry to know that you're breaking out, maybe it's the weather? I'm glad the ELF zitzapper works well on you though. I tried Zapzit and it was rubbish, didn't do anything except drying out my skin. I think maybe salicylic acid works better on me rather than benzoyl peroxide. Oh well, lesson learned.

  3. Super cute! Wow, didn't think ELF's zipzapper would work, but good to hear it does. I rarely have zits, but perhaps I should keep this in my drawer just in case!
