Full Face Using Elf Cosmetics

Recently, Elf cosmetics has been added to Ulta’s website. I am super excited because most likely it will soon be available in select stores. I don’t really like shopping for makeup online. Colors are never scaled as shown so seeing and testing in person is important for me. Elf’s products are cut-rate but exceptional. They are currently having a grand final sale on their website! Literally items are $1! To check out the sale, click here

But before you go, not every product you buy has be over $30 to be the best product in the world. You can create an entire face less than $30 and look just as gorgeous. Today I did what I consider a normal delicate face using only Elf cosmetics.

Poreless Face Primer $6.00

– reduces enlarged pores and fine lines

– infused with tea tree and Vitamin A/E

Acne Fighting Foundation in Caramel $6.00

Instant Brow Lift Pencil in Deep Brown $2.00

3 in 1 Mascara $3.00

Baked Bronzer in Los Cabos $3.00

– perfect use as your bronze and highlight

– contains rose, apricot and grape for hydration and nourishment


Blush in Mellow Mauve $3.00

– blends into a silky finish

Matte Lip Color in Tea Rose $3.00

Okay my total has come up to $26! This same amount is the result of 7 items rather than one item on my face.

All photos are not my own. They from the ulta website. Thank you for reading and I hope this shows you don’t need to go out and spend a ton on one beauty product.

Friday Favorites!

All summer I have been using BB creams. I definitely recommend using this if you are just starting out with makeup or like light coverage over the face. I have been loving the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35. I am using the color medium/dark. It controls the oil I build over the course of the day. I will say that it stays all day giving your face a flawless touch. I was impressed with this product. Personally, I wanted to hate it because it is on the high end and I didn’t want to purchase again. I do not recommend buying a $39.00 bb cream but I did want to test it out. I do like it a lot but I feel like this same formula can be priced down.

The Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover is seriously a must have. You simply put your finger inside and do a little movement and once you take it out, the polish is gone. It is so effortless which makes this my most favorite nail product! It is sulfate and paraben free which is something most of your products should not have. It’s cheap and worth the buy!

I am ready for Fall and my lip reflects that today. I love most of Nyx cosmetics mainly because they are super affordable and have great potential. I am wearing the Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Sandstorm. I have done a post in the past on all the colors in the collection. Check it out if you haven’t! They are really pigmented for only $7. It definitely beats paying $20 for the same ending result.

I’ve been into using blush to brighten up my face. The Bombshell Blush – Illuminating Baked Blush in Sunkissed has been my go-to. It is only $5 on the BH cosmetics website. It has good pigmetation and is easy to apply. The only true downside to this is that it is really small. I do wish that it was much bigger so that you have more product. But considering the price, I wouldn’t expect so much.

To apply the Bombshell Blush, I use the Brush 17 – Powder Brush which is also only $5. It does shed a bit but nothing a pricey brush can’t do. It is thick so it holds a lot of product and rubs on nicely. It is so fluffy and spreads out the product evenly.

Okay that’s all for today’s favorites! There aren’t many but I wanted to share the main products that I have beem grabbing towards this week. Let me know below if you also use these products and what you think of them. ♡
