Drugstore Haul // First Impressions

Makeup Monday is even sweeter today because I have compiled a few recent purchases for a little haul for you guys! These products are e.l.f. and Makeup Revolution purchased from the e.l.f. website and Ulta.

It’s been a while since I bought some makeup, so I went a bit crazy (but there was a sale so it’s fine). I haven’t really used these products very much but I will share my first impressions with ya’ll. One thing I did notice is e.l.f. packaging always looks so dirty! It attracts all dust and particles apparently.

*Please excuse the grubby nails (I need a manicure) and weird angled photography-I was having some lighting issues!*

e.l.f. Tinted Moisturizer {in Porcelain}

First off, this looks much darker than you would think Porcelain would be. I bought this because I have always wanted to try it. The only face color I have is my foundation so I am hoping this will be perfect for morning where I am in a little rush or just need a little coverage. But it contains Aloe, Cucumber, and SPF so that’s good!  Buy it hereDSC_1069.JPG

e.l.f. All Over Color Stick {in Spotlight}

I have actually used this and I am so impressed! This stick makes for the perfect highlighter. It glides on really pink looking but it buffs out much more subtle. The stick application is one I was weary of, but really like for highlighter. I also think this would be pretty on the eyes as well. It was only $1…I’m hoping I can get another color! Buy it here.

e.l.f. Smudge Pot {in Wine Not}

I am in love with the Maybelline Color Tattoo pots and when I saw this, I new I needed to try it! This was actually purchased at my local Walmart but they have them on the website. Cream shadows are perfect for a fast look because you can usually use them by themselves for a simple eye look. This Wine Not is an almost bronzy, purple color that is simply amazing. It is extremely shimmery but the color is just incredible. Buy it here.

 e.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip

To be honest, I was a little confused by this…I had never used “whip” on my face. But it is so beautiful and looks like it is going to be easy to blend out. The color is very pink but very strobe like. It is a powerful highlighter! It goes on so smoothy and has tiny shimmer throughout it. Buy it here.

e.l.f. Bronze Palette {in Bronzed Beauty}

By far, this is one of the best bronzer palette’s I have seen. There are two matte shades and two shimmery shades. I prefer the matte ones, but the shimmery isn’t to over done. The colors are so perfect for someone with fair skin. And the best part is the HUGE mirror in the palette. Buy it hereDSC_1066

e.l.f. Long-Lustrous Eye-shadow

The color isn’t labeled on the pot but I am pretty sure I have the color “Festivity” which is a pretty deep purple color. The consistency of this eye-shadow is a little odd-it’s almost a whipped clay texture. I haven’t had a chance to use this yet but I am interested to see how it goes on the lids. Beautiful color though! Buy it here.

e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick {in Wink Pink}

I was looking for a good nude pink color for fall and I found it. I love this line of lipstick because it really is moisturizing and sleek packaging. I am excited to use this color in a few weeks. Buy it here.

Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate

I have been searching for some good highlighters and I head that this one was a good one. The color is beautiful and full of shine. The packaging is great and you get a good amount of product in it. I can’t wait to use this and see how it does on the face. I am super hopeful about this highlighter. Buy it here.DSC_1087.JPG
