Surprise. Surprise. I decided to throw in a few beautification tips for my ladies today. I am not sure why I don't post much about what types of cosmetics I wear. Believe me when I say I have a pretty embarrassing, unorganized stash piled in a few bags.
I know most of you all know about the cosmetic line, e.l.f. (eyes lips face). It's been around for a few years. I actually remember first hearing about it and thought, makeup for a dollar? Uh, thanks, but no thanks. There is no possible way that an eyeliner that costs less than a Diet Dr. Pepper could do me any good. Right? Wrong.
When Target started carrying e.l.f., I was sold. I mean, Target is legit and we all want everything on every aisle in the store. Can I get an amen? So, I slowly started to pick up a lip gloss here, an eyeliner there and before I knew it my e.l.f. crush became a full blown love affair.
There are tons of other products I have yet to try, but below are a handful of the ones I swear by and will continue to use. It saves a ton of money and in my opinion they are just as good, if not better than the higher end products sold at Sephora and Ulta.
I am not going to go into details about each individual product. I will, however, chat about four that you need to add to your daily makeup routine stat.
Eyeliner - This bad boy lasts all day. It's a pen, so it's super easy to use and glides right on. It lasts a few months and comes in eight different colors. I use black and coffee. Cost: $2.00
Blush - This is almost identical to the coveted NARS brand. It's highly pigmented and is another one that lasts all day. I use Fuchsia Fusion which has a slight touch of glitter sparkle. The sparkle part sold me. Cost: $3.00
High Definition Powder - I used the Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder for years. Then I found out that e.l.f. sold one too. It's just as good as the more expensive brands. I put it on with the e.l.f. kabuki brush (pictured above) after my foundation for a flawless, photo finish look. Cost: $6.00
Lip Exfoliator - This is new from e.l.f. and I randomly stumbled upon during my last haul at Target. It is AWESOME! Perfect for removing rough/chapped skin off your lips and leaves you with a smooth lipstick ready pout. It tastes really yummy too! Cost: $5.00
Have you tried any e.l.f. products? If so, what should I add to my collection next?
