I have written before how much I am passionate about skin care products. I have hypersensitive skin and I break out very easily. Seems like I struggle with acne more as an adult then I did as a teenager.
Now, makeup? This season of my life, I do not put makeup on every day. Some days I do not have the energy and some days I do not get a shower before 8:00 pm. Ten years ago I don’t think I ever would have said that I go a week sometimes without putting a stitch of makeup on.
With all of that said, I am on a budget. I remember in my 20′s spending $25-$35 for a tube of mascara. I made a special trip to the mall to get it at one of the makeup counters. I was a mascara snob.
I don’t think I have purchased makeup from the mall makeup counter in probably a decade.
I have seen ELF products at Walmart and Target. Most of their makeup and brushes sell for either $1 or $3.
You read that right.
And honestly, the price being so inexpensive kept me from trying it. I wondered what it would do to my skin and if it is so affordable how good could it really be.
So I grabbed some items to try on my last trip to Target.
I also strolled the aisles and found some fun fall treats to make for my kids.
I purchased all of these ELF beauty products for less than $30!
Creamy eye shadows… fun! $3 each.
Applicator brushes, $1 each!
I like pressed powder, but I like to apply it sparingly just to control the shine.
I like to use a brush to apply.
Lip balm in the shade of pink that paired perfectly with lip liner I already had, $3.
This glides on perfectly. I really like the quality and shade.
Lash extending, no less.
Small, tight bristled wand.
I love small, tight bristled wands on my mascara! Great for lengthening.
Shall I say, I have found a new mascara.
Featuring the pressed powder lightly applied.
Pink lip balm.
Lash extending mascara.
Dawn cream eyeshadow all over my eye lids.
Bronzed cream eyeshadow in the crease.
I am very pleased.
Mommy solutions indeed!
