Review #2: Elohi Cosmetics

This is a favorite of mine and if you try them out, they will be a favorite of yours as well. I don't know about you but my eyes are sensitive and finding cosmetics that don't aggravate my eyes is a hard. I have found a few companies (reviews to come on those later) and this one, Elohi who are fantastic. So what is Elohi Cosmetics? It's an amazing cosmetic shop founded by the equally amazing Morgan Robinson. She is a Navy wife and mom, and now a business lady! You are probably wondering what Elohi stands for right? Well here goes a short history lesson:
"Elohi is the Cherokee word for Earth. It is pronounced Ay-low-he."-Morgan R.

Her products are all 100% all natural mineral makeup and Vegan friendly. She has every color pigment you could imagine...from natural to bright and bold. Currently I own:
Kristen (named after yours truly), Shock, Electricity, Erin, Geaux Geaux Gold, Miranda and Tipsy Tiger. They are amazing!

Here is a swatch:

A look I did from using her products:

Do you see how awesome, bright & glittery these pigments are? Seriously - they are amazing. Along with their killer pigments, Elohi offers mascara, lip gloss and eyeliner!! Another plus, is that they offer sample bags for cheap - so if you see a color that you aren't sure about, just get a sample!!! We here at DGG recommend Elohi Cosmetics! My favorite product: Kristen ;).
Right now, they are running a contest, so join their facebook page and check out the discussion tab!

Recap Time:
Amazing colors and variety
Amazing prices! Seriously
Amazing customer service

Review 1: Madd Style Designs

Ok ladies (and gents!) what we have tonight is Madd Style Designs. Now let me tell you, I am a lip balm and perfume lover. My lips are dry from time to time and it gets annoying. I've been using the regular chap sticks but it just doesn't do it for me. So I was introduce to Madd Style Designs, created by the outstanding Mo Love. It's hard for me to put into words how amazing her products are...but I'll try because that's what I am supposed to do in this blog, lol. I'm breaking this into two parts, so you'll get a full appreciation for everything.

1) Lip Bombs
These are seriously the best things I have ever tried. They stay on for a very long time, moisturizes my lips and they taste/look amazing. I love all of the flavors I have tried so far but I have to say, I am crushin' on Spanish Fly the most. It's a margarita party on your lips. The flavors I currently own are listed below and I have not had one I didn't love yet:
Spanish Fly, Bazooka Mo, Cherry Bomb, Fun House, Truffle shuffle, Wicked Clown. If you are just starting out, I recommend Spanish Fly and Fun House (which is a cotton candy). Her prices are amazingly affordable @ $2.50 a bomb. Not a lip bomb kinda gal? Try her Ubber Boss Lip Gloss, amazing!

2) Perfumes/Scents
Ok, so anyone who knows me...knows I love perfume and sprays. So when I found out that MSD makes these in addition to the lip bombs, well lets just say I felt like I died and went to Heaven! Anyhoo - MSD has solid perfumes, sprays, liquid and roll ons which I find great. The fact that there is a great variety here - it just makes it better. So I currently own one vial of perfume in the scent, Lick Me All Over (and boy does the hubby love this one!). Then I have a spray one in Skittles (like the's so cool how she was able to get the real smell!) and then in solids, I have:
The Cake Eater Trio (Birthday Cake, Lemon Pound Cake & Pumpkin Spice Cake) Just $5 for all 3! You can NOT beat that price my friends.
Candy Shoppe Trio (Brandy's Candy, Strawberry Lemon-Head, & Rolo's)
The best thing about these scents are, they don't leave you greasy like most do!!

Honestly, I could sit here all night and gush how amazing her products are but I can't. So what do we here @ DGG give Madd Style Designs? We give her a 10, a freaking 10! (lol yes I did just do that!). Give her a try and you wont be sorry, that is a promise.
Let's recap:
-Great Prices
-Great Variety
-Great Seller
-Fast Shipping
