e.l.f. Makeup: If the Price Fits, Buy it!

18 Apr

Ran up on this new product line at Target just recently, with its great name and simple stylish black packaging, I did a double take when it came to its pricing. All the products were basically under 5 dollars. My interests were certainly peaked at that point.

So this is what I picked up:

I really like tinted moisturizer and I use them all the time because they just seem lighter than regular make-up and they provide some color and sunscreen. Well, this stuff goes on smooth and has a creamy consistency. Love the way it feels on my face and it’s not harsh on your eyes at all, meaning it doesn’t feel like someone put acid on your eyeball if a little of it happens to get in there. They could fill the tube up a little more, but for 3 bucks it seems to make sense. Thumbs up!

To set the tinted moisturizer I got this Translucent Matifying Powder. This light weight powder does just what it claims, gives your face a light smooth matte finish! Yep…I like it and it was 3 dollars.

I also got this Wet Gloss Lash and Brow mascara. One side for a more defined lash without using color which is cool and one side to shape your brow. This stuff made my brow a little crunchier than I normally like though. I might prefer just to use my normal method and putting a dab of hair pomade on my brows, but if your going somewhere where you really want to hold the shape of your brow, this does a great job for just a buck!

I saved the best product for last! These Make-up Remover Cloths are the bomb! Most of the cloths that I have used in the past really burn my face and eyes. These $3 wipes not only remove all your make-up but they are large, super gentle and leave your skin feeling like you just used a moisturizer.  I will not be using anything but these from now on!

Apparently,  elves are good at making Christmas presents, cookies in trees and make-up, who knew?

I look forward to trying all the e.l.f. products! Hooray for budget products that do the job:)

    I’m happy to see e.l.f. back! Target carried them over 5 years ago, but the packaging was different & each item was only $1! They’re still reasonable, and I like that. 🙂 My favorite of their original line was a menthol-based tinted gloss… Will definitely check out their new stuff!

      Interesting, e.l.f. re-branding itself, that’s all it takes sometimes. I never heard of them before, but I sure like ‘um!
