Beauty on a Budget: E.L.F. Studio Brush Collection Review

E.L.F. Studio Brush Collection 4

The Muse happens to be a firm believer that splurging on certain makeup items is a good thing that includes makeup brushes.

Brushes are such an important start to makeup application so dropping a little cash on some good ones is always in order as far as I’m concerned.

Not everyone has a lot of cash hanging around to splurge on a $30-$45 dollar blush brush though which is completely understandable particularly in this economy.

Solution?

The E.L.F. Studio Brush Collection will set you back $3 for a brush and they are pretty nice!

Beauty News: E.L.F. Cosmetics At Target

elf target

Beauty news of the day is E.L.F. Cosmetics will soon be available at your local Target.  Interesting news dontcha think?

Starting November 1st E.L.F. Cosmetics will be available at Target on a 3 1/2 foot end cap in the cosmetics section.  The items will be a feature of $1, $3, $5, and $10 E.L.F. offerings in a slick black packaging.

Most of the items available initially will be from the $1 E.L.F. Collection but Spring will feature an updated assortment from the E.L.F. Studio Collection.

I think it’s kinda cool as now you can actually see product rather than look at swatches on the Internet.  I’m a big supporter of online shopping but sometimes I do like to see a product in person before laying my money down.

Are you an E.L.F. fan?

Love the idea of shopping it at your local Target?

E.L.F. Cosmetics Pro Collection

E.L.F.+Cosmetics+Pro+Collection+9

One does wonder how to get that professional look with a $3 price tag. E.L.F. Cosmetics now offers a Pro line for “that professional look” with an appealing budget price tag.

Jump ahead to learn more…!

Aspiring to be more like NARS, E.L.F.? E.L.F. Cosmetics Pro Collection does have a tad bit of a NARS look and feel to it but with quite a deeper discount. The new collection has a more sophisticated less than cheap look compared to the regular line and now sports the $3 price tag that E.L.F. has reserved for certain products in it’s line. Although much of E.L.F. still remains at $1 per an item they have grown up a fair bit and now sport $3 prices on newer items they add to their catalog, the pro line being one of those lines.

One could go so far as to say that E.L.F. did a pretty good job with the simple black packaging on the new line but don’t get too excited as it does appear to be simply plastic. The look and feel mimics NARS a tad bit which I’m sure they will use to their advantage in future e-mail bursts advertising their products.

I can’t say I’m terribly excited to jump on board and try this out but I will admit to being ever so slightly curious. Particularly the brush set gathers much of my attention as my sister and quite a few readers have expressed their delight over E.L.F. Brushes. The rest of the line could prove very popular if you’re on a beauty budget at the moment or have always been. Shamefully I admit that cheap makeup holds little appeal to me most times but I can see the possibility of these becoming very popular items.

Here’s a few items that did capture my interest.

E.L.F. Cosmetics Pro Eye Lash Curler ($3)

E.L.F.+Cosmetics+Pro+Collection+8

E.L.F. Cosmetics Pro Mini Makeup Collection ($15)
E.L.F.+Cosmetics+Pro+Collection+7

E.L.F. Cosmetics Pro Brush Collection ($30)
E.L.F.+Cosmetics+Pro+Collection+6

E.L.F. Cosmetics Pro Complexion Perfection ($3)
E.L.F.+Cosmetics+Pro+Collection+5

E.L.F. Cosmetics Pro Bronzer (3 Shades Available: Warm, Cool, and Golden $3)
E.L.F.+Cosmetics+Pro+Collection+4

E.L.F. Cosmetics Pro Blushed and Bronzed ($3)

E.L.F. Cosmetics Matte Powder ($3)

E.L.F. Cosmetics Shimmer Palette ($3)
E.L.F.+Cosmetics+Pro+Collection+2

Overall, I can’t say if I’ll be indulging in E.L.F.’s reincarnation of NARS as I’m just window shopping at the moment but I will say that $3 bucks is a nice price if these prove worthy.

What do you think?
