Elf Glossy Gloss Review + Update

Hey everyone!

So today I will be reviewing the Elf Glossy Gloss lip gloss. Today I be giving you a quick update on my life and where I've been these last few weeks! So lets get started with the review!

(sorry for bad photo quality!) So I purchased this Elf Glossy Gloss at the Dollar Tree. So therefore it cost $1. I normally wouldn't purchase a lip gloss from the Dollar Tree, just because I have lots of lip glosses and it would be a waste of money. But I don't have lip glosses from Elf and it was only a buck, so I figured why not? I'm not sure of the shade anymore because I threw away the packaging and forgot to write it down (silly me!) but I know it was the only shade they had available. I think it might of had the word dragon in it, but I don't know. Sorry!

One thing that really disappointed me about this product is the size of how much lip gloss you actually get. I was expecting it to be the full length of the box, but in reality what you can through the little window thing, is all you get. It's really tiny. I wasn't too horribly upset about it because I did only pay a dollar for it, if it were a MAC lip gloss or a NYX one or something like that I might of been more upset, but just be aware of this if you're going to buy this.

One more thing that surprised me about this product was the applicator. For some reason I expected it to be a felt tip sponge applicator, or whatever it's called, the standard brush. But it's really a brush tip applicator, which isn't a bad thing, but to be honest, I had never used one of these before, or even heard of them, so I was like what the heck? But it's all good now, I just want to tell you guys about that.

It doesn't have a bad taste, but it's not yummy either. It doesn't have a flavor, but trust me it's not bad. Once I got these one lip glosses that were themed after the TV show Glee, and they tasted SO horrible I wanted to vomit. Not kidding. Anyways overall I would give it four stars. It could be better, it could be worse, but for a buck it was money well spent. :)

So as many of you may know I was on vacation in California and Las Vegas. Me and my family flew into Vegas and stayed there for a couple days and then took a rental car to my Grandma's house in California. I had so much fun, I got to see my cousins and everything. The only bad thing was the rub/scab thing I got from the boogie board, but whatever. :) I got a chance to go shopping while I was there and I uploaded a haul video on my YouTube channel, so if you want to check that out, go right ahead! And please subscribe. :) There are 27 of you subscribed to this blog and only 3 on my YouTube channel. I know there must be more of you who follow this blog that also have YouTube accounts. :D Also, my Twitter account user name has changed from MisssSparkle to JosieSparkle1. I thought that might be a little easier to remember since my old one had an extra S in it and everything, plus I think my new name fits me a little better. :)

One other thing I found out on vacation is that it's funny how when you're little how much you idolize somebody and then you realize they really aren't the best role models. I'm not going to name names or even say how she's related to me (just in the rare miracle she discovers my blog) but I used to think of her as my role model, she's a family member. I used to think of her as the prettiest girl on the planet. But I recently saw her and my makeup savy self discovered that she wears literally a gallon of makeup on her face (mostly foundation), that her hair is died that pretty color, she's overweight, she doesn't wear a seat belt all the time, and yeah. Don't get me wrong, I still love her and I don't think she's a bad person or anything like that, it's just that I wanted to share that with you. She's still pretty and everything, but there is no way that she needs that much makeup. Seriously I'm not even joking you, she has SO much makeup on. You can 100 percent tell it doesn't look natural.

To all my dear followers,
Please don't ever wear that much,
me. :)

Anyways enough about my vacation, hope you guys are all having an excellent day! And I plan to post more often now that I'm back, what would you guys like to see posts on? Give me any ideas and I possibly do them. Thank you!
