E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder

E.L.F. when you do things right you do things right and your new Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder is all kinds of right.

At some point in my makeup life I avoided powder under my eyes in a major way. It was aging me terribly and just wasn’t a good idea all around. I discovered Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder and proceeded to hate all over it. At the time I was just starting to have issues with dryness under my eyes and was really struggling with how to treat the issue. Needless to say after I started moisturizing my eyes properly I enjoyed Laura’s powder and later discovered even nicer products for settling my concealer like Skin Food’s Salmon Powder and Benefit Powderflage.

Needless to say when E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder launched I was curious. Three dollar setting powder? Mmmm…!

I’m kinda on this kick where I’m loving on shades that brighten my eyes up but are barely there. Bobbi Brown Nude Beach and Navajo are two plus I love Laura Mercier Eye Canvas and Trish McEvoy’s Eye Base Essentials.

What are your fav barely there eyeshadow shades?

My newest pick is NYX Eyeshadow in Pure Skin.

Love!

E.L.F. Studio Cosmetics Lotion Wipes Review

E.L.F. Studio Cosmetics Lotion Wipes Review 1

I gotta say I’m always a little surprised that my sister doesn’t glide across the room when she walks. The girl applies body cream by the gallon everyday. Bless her soul.

I wish I was as diligent and I should be since I have drier skin but I feel so pressed for time in the morning that I sometimes skip out on the body cream and leave it until the evening or dare I say sometimes in the evenings I forget! Needless to say I should be moisturizing my body way more than I do…! If I used as much moisturizer on my body as I do on my face I’d probably glide too.

That’s why I gotta say that E.L.F. Lotion Wipes are kinda rocking my world at the moment. These are so freaking nifty.

Take a look!
