Beauty on a Budget

E.L.F. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

E.L.F. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette 2

Ahhh the great debate. Should you indulge in the E.L.F. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette or shouldn’t you? 32 Eyeshadows, sponge applicator, mirror, nice slim compact, $5 buck price tag….sounds dreamy right? Where could you possibly go wrong indulging since the price isn’t too bad….

This year E.L.F. has two of these limited edition palettes available for the Holidays. The one I’ll be reviewing here today is the mini version which includes 32 shadows for $5 bucks and there’s another, which I didn’t purchase, that includes 100 eyeshadows for $10 bucks.

First off, these are obviously way popular because they are sold out however E.L.F. is allowing orders for when they do come back in stock. Secondly, I purchased mine on a sheer whim because I know alot of people wanted to hear about it, see photos, etc…prior to purchasing it for themselves. And thirdly, I am a bit of a makeup snob and palettes like this don’t always garner my love and attention. Slapping 100’s of eyeshadow into a palette can prove great particularly from brands like Urban Decay, hey bring that on, but present me with one from E.L.F. and I’m naturally a little wary about the quality.

Let’s have a look and see if this bad boy lives up to it’s “professional status” as dubbed by E.L.F.

E.L.F. Mineral Blending Eye Brush 1

I’m always on the look out for great blending brushes. I love my MAC 224 but I cheat from time to time to see what else is out there. In the case of budget beauty, E.L.F. has some surprisingly good offerings in the brush world.

They recently introduced a Mineral Brush Collection that’s 100% Cruelty Free, I picked up the blending brush on a whim when perusing the new Fall Collection.

Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeliner Pencil 1

I’ve become ever so slightly obsessed with the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Collection after trying the Holiday Palettes. These are seriously amazing palettes for the price and have given me a completely new outlook on the brand and budget beauty. I can be a bit picky when it comes to makeup so it is saying something when I actually LIKE budget makeup.

Since trying and loving the ColorIcon Palettes I was determined to explore more of the line, my first stop, Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeliner Pencil.
