ELF Pro Eyeshadow Primer | Review


I've been a long time fan of the ELF Mineral Eyelid Primer, which they no longer offer, instead they only have the Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer ($2.00) (formerly the Essential Eyelid Primer) available - a decent formula but does not hold up all day without a bit of creasing or fading. Now ELF has a new primer, the Pro Eyeshadow Primer ($4.00) "enriched with Kaolin Clay to help lock on color and absorb excess oil, along with antioxidant Vitamin E".

Summer Festival Look ft. ELF Cosmetics

[press samples] 

Summer is here and I'm so ready to play with bright colors and fun looks for the coming events! ELF Cosmetics was generous enough to send me a little pack of products to create a Summer Festival look, and I'm absolutely obsessed with this blue brow & shiny gold makeup look I created!! I have been playing around with colored brows all year, but I was using eyeshadows and my bushy brows just wouldn't hold onto color. This time I used the Cream Eyeliner - Teal Tease, and the results speak for themselves :) I had an old ELF Glitter Mascara in blue, which I lightly applied to the brows for even more sparkle and texture.

ELF Haul & Reviews


I recently purchased some new items from ELF Cosmetics, and I figured doing a round-up review on these grooming tools would be helpful to those interested in buying ELF's newest additions. I have already reviewed the Precision Sponge Trio HERE.

Billion Dollar Brows - Brows on Point Micro Pencil & Brow Powder | Review & Swatches

[press samples]

Over the past month and a half I've been receiving many compliments on my brows, and aside from slightly rounding my arches more, I've been using some new products that I'm very excited to say have been and probably will be my go-to products! I'm talking about the Billion Dollar Brows Brows on Point Micro Pencil ($16.00, 4 shades) and the Brow Powder ($18.00, 4 shades). Billion Dollar Brows is a brand I've featured before on my websites when I reviewed their Best Seller's Kit ($35.00) which you can read HERE. However, these two products are very new to me, and even better than the Best Seller's Kit items, in my honest and personal opinion :)
