e.l.f.: The Best Budget Friendly Makeup Line

Once upon a time, back in my twenties, if you looked in my makeup bag, you'd find a lot from e.l.f. It was the super reasonable prices that this budget friendly makeup line offered that appealed to me the most back then, so when I grew up (you know when I started caring more about a good bottle of wine than dollar-beer night, bwah) and had more budget to work with, I found myself turning to higher end brands.

That being said, every time I saw e.l.f. on the shelf during my weekly Target jaunts, I always smiled because the line brought back such fond memories. So, when I had the opportunity to test out some new e.l.f. products recently, I jumped on it. I wanted to see what my old friend e.l.f. had to offer and I was thrilled with what I found...So, let's talk about a few of my favorite new e.l.f. finds shall we?


Baked Highlighter...Highlighter is not something I use every day, so I'm not exactly keen on spending an arm and a leg on it. But I do find myself wanting to experiment more with my look every now and again and this highlighter adds a lovely, illuminating kinda glow that I don't always have in the winter.

Baked Eyeshadow Trio...I love eye-shadow trios simply for the ease of use. They make it super simple to apply more than one color to your eyes without looking like a clown. And the coordinating colors in the Peach Please trio from e.l.f. make for a fabulous neutral statement. It's perfect for those busy mama mornings when you have little time to throw yourself together!


Velvet Matte Lipstick...I also don't typically love paying a large price tag for trends. Matte looks (on both lips and nails) are hot this season, but who knows how long it will be around this time. Matte is a trend that I'm diggin' right now though, so this lippie is right up my alley. I love how easily it goes on and it doesn't feel drying as some matte formulas can be.
