Beauty on a Budget
Seems the blogsphere is going buck wild over the new E.L.F. Studio Baked Blushes released a few short months ago. Heck, when you have people screaming about MAC Stereo Rose dupes you know I’m listenin’!
Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves though…!
These $3 blushes come in four shades with a baked shimmering formula.
Are they a hit?
Or a miss?
I picked up a few of the E.L.F. Jumbo Eyeshadow Sticks along with the Lip Gloss Pencils. Since I liked the lip pencils so much I’m hoping these Jumbo Eyeshadow Sticks prove just as nice.
They are available in 10 shades and each is a mere $2 bucks each! Perhaps they’ll make a nice base for powder eyeshadow and pigments.
I’m busy testing at the moment but here are a few swatches of the shades I got!
I didn’t expect much from the E.L.F. Jumbo Lip Gloss Sticks since they are part of the Essentials Collection. I dunno about you but I enjoy the Studio line a hell of a lot more than the Essentials one.
Plus with so many chubby pencil products like this on the market at the moment I questioned if I really needed another to love.
But I gotta say it’s the best two bucks I’ve spent in a while. Haul some. You’ll be happy with these.
One of the biggest complaints I’m hearing about the new E.L.F. HD Blushes has to do with the application. These are so powerfully pigmented they prove a little difficult to apply and sheer out on lighter or even medium skin tones.
No worries, here’s a budget brush from E.L.F. for application!
I’m delighted to report that Hard Candy’s Glossaholic Lipgloss Collection is being extended with new colors for Fall/Winter 2012. I fell in love with these when they originally introduced them.
At $5 each it’s like getting a mega sized MAC Lipglass for a heap less!
