For Christmas, my boyfriend got me some great new make up stuff! Not only did I get a huge Caboodles case for all my make up, he also bought some Eco Tools brushes and some other things. He did get me a large make up kit but I didn’t care for it so I purchased some E.l.f. (eyes, lips, face) brand make up.
I love my new case! It makes putting on my make up much simpler and quicker! I don’t have to look for certain things and it keeps everything a lot cleaner. It would even be easy to travel with! The case also has a key and lock. You know, just in case someone wants my fancy make ups.
This is my new ELF blush in the shade Candid Coral. I’ve never tried a coral before; I really am not a big blush person but my current blush is way too pink for me. This was $3 at Target. I find the color to be extremely sheer. I do like it though because I only need a bit of shimmer and tint on my pale skin. The color is more of a peachy color rather than an orange color.
This is the $1 eyelash curler. I will probably continue to purchase this one because of the price and it works just fine. It also includes another rubber pad when the first wears down. I also like that it has an extra loop for your finger. It works great at curling my lashes!
Another $1 ELF product; eyelid primer. I’ve used it a few times and can’t tell a huge difference. I’ve read reviews of this product and it doesn’t seem to be a very good primer. I use mostly cream eyeshadows right now so it doesn’t help a lot.
This is a liner and shadow stick in one ($3). I got the shade Smoke because I needed a dark eyeshadow for smokey eyes and such. I really like stick shadows because they are easy to apply. This one is really lovely. The liner on the other hand smudges super easy! You also can’t have it out very far when you put on the lid. As you can see, I smashed mine.
No big reviews or swatches just yet. If you’d like to see them please comment and I can create some reviews for these products. There are some hits and misses but for a few bucks it’s fun to experiment with new make up. I would certainly choose this brand in the future.
