So in my recent haul, which you can see here, I picked up some of the e.l.f. (eyes lips face) cosmetics to try out while I was at target. I'd heard of the $1.00 makeup brand before, but never tried it. So, I decided to give it a whirl. The first things I'm going to be reviewing are three eyeshadow quads I got, each $1.00.
Contains: one sparkly hot pink, one deep purple, a cobalt blue and a white-cream color for a highlight. The purple and blue in this quad are a little messy. They are pretty pigmented colors though. The pink color I really love! It has glitter in it, and not just shimmer, like chunky glitter. But, for a crazy colorful look, I think it would be great!
"Day 2 Night"
This is the PERFECT neutral eye quad for beginners. It has colors that are great for everyday, like the highlight color and the light brown, then it has two darker colors, the dark brown and dark charcoal colors, which are perfect for a quick transition to night.
This quad was my favorite! It has a very light rosy pink, a deep gray/silver color, a plummy purple and a highlight color. I loved this quad, I even wore it out last night just to try it! The colors are more pigmented than you would expect for only $1, and over a base they are even better! I really enjoyed this quad and will probably be using it in the future!
Good: for the price these are very nice quality. I would definitely recommend these for younger girls, beginners or simply any beauty lover on a budget.
Bad: when you blend the colors on your eye, they fade like crazy! And, as far as I know, you can only get them at Target, so if you're not a big online shopper they may be hard to get your hands on.
Another Note: Last night I wore the Silver Lining quad on my eyes out to dinner and while I was pleasantly surprised with how it looked, when I woke up this morning I had a big swollen eye. Now, I'm not blaming the e.l.f. product, I'm just wondering if this has happened to anyone else or if you know why it may have happened?? Please comment and let me know! :)
Overall, I would recommend these, especially since they are so inexpensive. The quality obviously isn't that of a department store brand, but for someone just looking for some inexpensive but good quality products, this is the way to go!
Hope you enjoyed!
