We just noticed that our traffic has bumped to about 3000-4000 people a day in the past week and a half, and we just wanted to thank all of our loyal Style Chicks readers for your support and enthusiasm. And we love when we get e-mails from you talking about how great you think a product that you first saw on StyleChicks is!
Thanks again – and we look forward to sharing more great reviews and news with you in the upcoming weeks to our 4th anniversary of StyleChicks.com!

So if things look a little weird for a bit, sorry about that – but when the new design goes up, it will be a better, pinker Style Chicks experience!
ELF has some great products that find a happy home in my regular makeup bag, and their Mineral Eyeshadow Primer is one of them. The formula is incredibly light, but packs a decent coverage and brightening punch, and keeps shadow in check. For everyday, I put it on after concealer (sometimes I use thin coats both before and after concealer if my eyes are puffy), and then just add highlighter (Benefit’s Georgia Peach) on my browbone, about half an inch from my eyebrow. It really gives a natural look that doesn’t crease or crinkle during the day, and it really doesn’t feel heavy or sticky.
It comes in one color, Sheer, which is ideal for me, but as you know, I’m quite pale. I don’t know how it would work on other skin tones, though when the other Style Chicks tried it out, it still looked natural on a more olive-toned fair skin. I think it would serve as a decent brightener on darker skin tones as well – don’t let the color in the tube scare you off, since it goes on so lightly.
It’s not just a great primer, either – it contains Vitamins A, C, and E – so you get some skincare action as well! Try applying it with a sponge or synthetic brush – the wand is a bit too small to blend with. And definitely make sure to blend it all the way into the inner V of your eye – it brightens and opens the area right up without looking fake. You just look…what do they call that…well rested.
There are some great eyeshadow primers on the market right now, and ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer is amongst them. For everyday use, it’s a great value at $3.00 and the tube lasts surprisingly long. In fact, I still had about 1/8th of my old tube left (which I got about a year ago and have been using 2-3 days a week) when I ordered my new tube recently.

Just got a spiffy new camera and a spiffy new mini photo studio – if there are any color swatches you would like to see, drop us a line!
We’ve been inundated with work and school lately, but will be back with full Style Chick vigor soon. We are hoping to start adding color swatches to our updates….here’s hoping our new camera is upto the task!
Hope you are all doing well!

Sorry for the lack of posting – we’ve been testing out a bunch of new products to share with you, and some of them have been good enough that we sort of forgot to write about them. We’re all headed out the door at the moment to go see friends in Westchester, but when we get back, we can’t wait to share some of our latest and greatest finds with you.
And yes, I still think Fekkai Overnight Hair Repair is amazing. Add a little Coiff Piecing and Forming Wax (my latest hair product obsession) to the ends the next day, and you’ll be staring at yourself in the mirror for hours.
Have a good weekend everyone!
We’re currently tweaking the design on Style Chicks – so things might appear a little weird today….
