I had done a silly make up review of my last E.L.F cosmetics order back in an April blog, so I thought I would share some items I reordered and a few thoughts on newest additions.
I'm not going to lie and say I really know what I'm talking about when it comes to makeup, I have acquired quite the collection over these past few years, yet I'm a creature of simple habits. I like a value for my money and I also like to splurge from time-to-time, so I'm not totally cheap *wink*. I became smitten with E.L.F cosmetics simply on a whim at Target one day, I'm glad I tried their products and my wallet is happy too!
Mineral Foundation SPF 15 in Porcelain-Great value at $5, the container is small and can make a mess, but the color is dead on for my hard to match 'death warmed over' complexion. I have dry skin and when this mineral foundation is used over a primer it's quite nice. Not recommended for someone who wants full coverage.
Makeup Lock & Seal-$3 I damp my brush with the lock & seal and use it with my gel liner for my eye brows. I've also used it with my bolder eye shadows looks which have helped my makeup stay put even after hours of sweating on the dance floor. This product is not a miracle worker, but it's a nice sealer for the money.
Studio Lip Balm SPF 15 in Plum-$3 I was on the fence about this product as I'm picky about anything involving color on my lips. As much as I'm addicted to chapstick (I know, it's terrible), I am not a fan of the feel of lipsticks, lip stains, etc., but I love the way it looks. I was pleasantly surprised with the Studio Lip Balm, feels nice with sort of a minty tingle, moisturizing and the color is lovely! Nice for a simple day or evening look.
Studio Stipple Brush-$3 I didn't expect much from a $3 brush and well, it's nothing to write home about. It's my first stipple brush, so it could be that I just haven't gotten the hang of it, I'll chalk it up to an inexpensive practice brush.
Have you ever tried E.L.F cosmetics?
Thanks for reading!
