eyes.lips.face. (no, I'm not being paid. I wish I was.)

Happy Thursday! 
So I recently discovered this super cool brand called e.l.f. (eyes lips face). Unfortunately, their site doesn't ship to Europe. This led to me asking for a bunch of their stuff for Christmas from family in America. I really wanted to try their stuff for a few reasons.
1. it's cheap.
2. it's cheap. 
3. it's cheap. 
Now, I have been led to believe [by many, and for good reason] that cheap=bad. 
I am here to throw out that theory. 
So, if you are in the market for reasonably priced, good makeup, please pay attention. 
As much as I wish I was being paid by e.l.f. for this post, I am not. I'm simply tryin' to help a broke thrifty sista out. 
Let me tell you about my most recent favorite makeup products (this is coming from someone who almost never wears makeup). 


FAVORITE: 
The e.l.f. Eyebrow Stencil Kit. ($1)
I have seen some very expensive eyebrow kits, and almost shelled out the dough for those things (don't hate... I have a thing for perfect brows). After discovering this thing I am so glad I didn't. This kit comes with 4 super easy to use stencils that will fit almost any brow type. All ya do is fill in the lines using my
SECOND FAVORITE e.l.f. TOOL: The e.l.f. eyebrow kit ($3). 
The dark color is a gel that will hold your brows in perfect form, and the lighter color is a powder that sets the gel and the color. 

Once your brows are all sexified, you can move on to your lashes. 

I love the 
e.l.f. Mascara Primer ($3)
to create more surface area for the 
e.l.f. regular and waterproof mascara duo ($1)
to cover. These two tools combined make for some beautiful lashes that are both long and full. 

Finally, when your lashes are bold and beautiful (haha, I sound like a commercial), you can move on to adding some color to make those puppies pop. I picked the 
eyes lips face Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette ($15)
which just so happens to have eyeshadow (that actually stays on all day) in every freakin' color under the rainbow. I mean, 144 shades. Some sparkly, some matte, all amazing. You can do a smoky eye in any color (although why anyone would want a yellow smoky eye is beyond me). 

Don't believe how amazing this stuff is? Please ignore the fact that I forgot to make the rest of my face up (can we all ignore how badly my cheeks need color? And let's not even acknowledge the lips that really need exfoliation), and focus on those brows and eyes. Yes, I know I forgot eyeliner.

You know, as a photographer I'm always on the lookout for cheap but well made makeup to use on my models. Thanks for pointing these out!!

Okay you have me sold on this e.l.f. stuff! I am so excited to try it! Do they have the eyebrow kit in blonde?

Daryl said...

Next time you (or somebody else) buys, check retailmenot.com. They almost always have discounts or free shipping for ELF. Last time I ordered it was spend $25 and get a free US Weekly subscription.

I love ELF! I use their brushes, their liquid eyeliner, and their blush. I'm really particular about my eyes, so I'm kind of afraid to buy their shadows or mascara because I would rather pay more for quality.

I was gonna buy their 144 palette eyeshadows because it was only $8.50, but then I didn't because I didn't want to bring it back from vacation with me. I'm glad you like them though!

oh I've never tried e.l.f. but i'm always one for makeup so i'll have to give it a try sometime. ps. have you gotten my secret santy gift yet, or did it get lost-o ?

Kelly said...

I love love loooove ELF products. If you have a chance to try the $1 eyelash curler, do it! It's amazing! The eyeshadow primer is also pretty awesome :)
