Last weekend I went to the local Target just for fun and found something new and interesting in the cosmetic section. They now have a small section of Elf products. I had never heard of them but boy was I excited to see what I saw. CHEAP cosmetics. Like, there were many things that were only $1a piece. I got so excited that I grabbed a bunch of things and made a make shift basket out of my new shirt that I was buying. The selection that they had was not super huge but there was enough to make me happy. Here is the haul.
I love getting new makeup brushes. These ones were just $1 a piece and not bad. The large one (on top) is very nice and I use it to even out the cover up and eye primer. The small brush (the bottom) is for cover up as well but I am going to be using it for my eyes/eyeshadow. The small brush came apart though. I had to glue it back together. No big deal.
About 2 months ago I looked EVERYWHERE for a nice eye primer and could not find any or I found one that was way too expensive. When I saw this one I snatched it up fast. It has a nice consistency to it and blends in well. Ever since I saw a good make up tutorial on YouTube I have wanted eye primer and now I have some. Yea!
I bought this color stick thinking it was pinker than the actual color. It is a gold/bronze color and it does not really look good on my skin tone. I night give it away to a friend.
Just like the eye primer I looked everywhere for a light shimmer. Elf to the rescue. I find a tiny bit of shimmer on the tip of my nose and the dip just above my top lip make me look dewy and healthy.
I haven't really gotten into the whole fake eyelash thing. I rub my eyes too much to really wear a lot on my eyes. I have to use all my willpower not to rub off my eyeshadow and mascara. I think this weekend I will try going all out with falsies and all. These ones were only $1 so I figured that if they came off in 10 minutes it wasn't a huge loss.
This was a build your own eyeshadow pallet. It came with 4 empty spots. The pallet w/ mirror and applicator was only $1. Each eyeshadow color was also $1. I chose a basic black and white. I like to use the white as a highlighting color to brighten up my eyes and I use the black as an eye liner to make my lashes fuller. The pink and lavender are 2 regular colors that get used on an almost daily basis.
Lastly, I got a nice simple mirror for my bag. It was one dollar and should serve me well.
