I recently purchased the following items online from e.l.f. I've been hearing great things about them and their stuff is so cheap! So I figured I would try some of it out. I got stuff that you can never get too much of (like shadows) and some unique items that I don't currently use to see what I think!
e.l.f. Studio Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette - Limited Edition
I haven't tried these colors out enough to really go either way about it, but I'm more about the way a shadow appears on the skin and how well it lasts during the day. Color preferences are really up to the individual. So, while I'm not crazy how some of the colors show up, they seem to wear well throughout the day. So, for $5 you get a lot of options! Definitely worth it.
e.l.f. Studio Cream Eyeliner
I'm a fan of the cream eyeliner. But it may just be because I'm a fan of all black cream eyeliners. But, what really did me in was the applicator I purchased to apply it. Now that is fabulous. See next item...
e.l.f. Studio Angled Eyeliner Brush
This little thingy is awesome. I've never used an applicator brush that was so perfectly angled. You can completely dodge your eyelashes and get right to the spot. Amazeballs!
e.l.f. Studio Daily Moisture Stick
I'm kind of iffy on this one. I like the idea of just being able to roll on moisture whenever you need it. It's travel size and super cute. But, the after effect is a TAD sticky and I'm really not a fan of any moisturizers that make me feel sticky at all. I would love it if this had SPF in it. Then I could carry it around when I'm outside all day and apply as needed.
e.l.f. Studio Zit Eraser
I don't think the zit eraser moves mountains like some of the reviews, but it effectively dries out greasy zits (like most pimple creams). So it does the trick with a handy little brush.
Collections Makeup Grab Bag
So I am not a fan of the pink and cream colors in this shadow set. They don't look good on me AT all and the grey barely shows up, which bothers me. BUT the dark brown at the bottom is now my go-to for the darkest part of my smokey eye and I love it. It also has a HINT of shimmer. Note: I never use these smokey-eye kits to achieve the look. (And I think I have pretty much mastered it.) I always use a mish-mash of shadows and liners until I get it just right. (Maybe I should do a tutorial?)
The mascara is pretty run of the mill. It gets the job done but doesn't lengthen and separate like the more expensive ones do. It also tends to clump.
I like the makeup remover pen. If you're like me you always have a dark line under your eye or a shadow crease on your lid around lunch time. This little guy wipes it off quickly and fits in your purse! The only bad thing about these products is it wipes off everything so your foundation and any base shadow goes with it. But, if you're careful, it's great for touch-ups here and there.
What are your favorite e.l.f. products? Anything I missed that I should try?

I'm dreading today like the plague because my doc is making me come in to take blood. She's been wanting me to do this routine test for a year and I keep dodging it. I legit ALWAYS pass out when they take blood. It's probably one of my top 10 things I hate to do. So now I have to fast all day and then go around 4pm. So if I don't pass out from the blood, I'll be passed out from starvation!
Here's hoping your hump day is a LOT better then mine! Bye!!
