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 Review

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.

Check it!

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer Review, Swatches, Photos

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer 1

Since I’m the Queen of Concealer it was only right that I run really fast to the nearest Evil Empire (Walmart) and grab me some Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer.

Now I didn’t expect much since Hard Candy is geared towards a bit of a younger crowd. Gosh I hate admitting that but in many aspects it is great beauty budget collection but I do think they are trying to grab the attention of teens not women.

However, I, for one, do not follow the rules and I’ve found some gems among the selection of Hard Candy goodies located at my evil empire (insert the imperial march here).

Let’s have a look at this concealer.
