I don't know about you, but I LOVE makeup! I L-O-V-E it! I love trying new shades of eyeshadow, buying new and daring lip colors and playing around with different types of eyeliners. The only downfall to this besides not liking your experiment is the cost. Makeup today costs SO MUCH money and it's not fun buying an expensive product ending up not liking it. If I told you that there was a makeup brand that costs from $1 to $5 you would call me crazy, right? Well, call me crazy! E.L.F. (Eyes Lips Face) makeup has a wide variety of makeup that costs little! They carry all the makeup items you need, even brushes and other tools, for $5 or less! Yes ladies, this is real! This was made for us fashionistas!
I'm going to show you some of my personal favorite products and a few fun things on E.L.F. Makeup's website that can add to your makeup fun!
Brightening Eye Color includes four great shades of eyeshadow that go well with each other unlike a lot of other compact eye shadows. They carry 18 different selections of this product and guess what the best part of this is? It's only $1!!! Hard to believe isn't it? Ready for something else? It has a mirror! That's almost always my selling point, not because of vanity, but because I'm always forgetting my mirror when I need it.
Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil is a new product for E.L.F. and it's already becoming a BIG hit! This pencil eyeliner comes in many bright and fun colors and also in your basic brown and black, BUT it has some shimmer to it! This magic pencil will be a hit for formals events or just some fun time with the girls! Price for this little bit of fun is only $1! It includes a sharpener (because we are always loosing them).
Hypershine Gloss Box Set is a fab thing to have! This box set of 5 amazing colors will make your lips look amazing! They add sparkle and shine to them! You can choose from 5 different types of colors and it's only $5! Just twist the bottom, apply, and go!
Natural Radiance Blusher adds some color to your pretty little face. With six colors to choose from why wouldn't you buy them all?! This blush makes your skin look softer and smoother and makes you look radiant, says the name. This wonder costs you only $1.
Shimmer Palette is always fun! Four different shades of shimmer in each palette to add some sparkle to your skin. You can apply this over your eyes, face, neck, anywhere you want to add a touch of shimmer too. This product costs $3. Also, you can go online and watch the tutorial video to see how it is done.
E.L.F. also carries brushes, eyelash curlers (only $1), mirrors, sharpeners, brow tweezers and many more tools for $5 or less. They also carry mineral makeup, bath sets (which include body butter, moisturizer, bath gel, fragrance, hand soap and sanitizer), studio makeup, gift sets, nail polish, and kits that show you how to do smokey eyes and other ways of doing your makeup. E.L.F. online also has tips, tutorial videos, a store locator (not all stores carry this) and even a "Get The Look" link which helps you find and create the right look for you.
So hurry up and buy some E.L.F. Makeup, invite a few gal friends over and have a makeup party that won't break the bank!
