ELF Mineral Infused Mascara
Available at Target, eyeslipsface.com- $3
Product Claims and Description:
Provide your eyelashes with the beneficial effects of minerals with this mineral-infused mascara from ELF. The colored mascara works to define your eyelashes and make them stand out while the minerals work to make your eyelashes stronger. Mineral Infused Mascara creates fuller, healthier looking lashes. It enhances lashes for a naturally thicker and more volumized look. The long-wear formula and unique silicone brush creates clump free and defined lashes that last all day.
This mineral infused mascara is part of ELF’s Studio line that retails for $3 to $5 & for the most part, most of their products from their Studio Line have been great. However, I’m just going to be straight-forward and get to the point with this product: I did not like it, at all. I honestly tried to make it work for me, but this mascara was not cutting it for me. The formula was too wet and goopy, the brush did not separate my lashes nor added any volume or length to my lashes. If anything, it actually clumped my lashes together and when I tried separating them or comb them out with the wand (without adding anymore product) it just smeared on to my eye or just got worse. I was really disappointed in the performance of this mascara. I really had high hopes for it, because everything that I had tried in the Studio line has worked for me magnificently, but this mascara just fell short and did not meet up it’s standards or claims.
Things that could have made this mascara better would be the formula itself. If it had the right balance of moisture, I think it could live up to it’s expectations and give a better performance. As well as the brush/wand… the bristles were too short for my taste. If the bristles were a bit longer and fuller, I think this mascara would be awesome and deliver and live up to it’s expectations. Overall, I would not look into repurchasing this mascara again, unless there were changes in the formula or the wand.
I would give this mascara 1 out of 5. Sorry :/
If any of you lovelies have tried this mascara and think otherwise, please let me know if it worked for you!
ELF’s Liquid Eyeliner
Total repost, I know! I didn’t read that far ahead in my makeup challenge, but this is my favorite liquid liner. From the last Eyeliner Post: I tried this liquid eyeliner about two years ago and have been hooked ever since. This is one of my all-time favorite ELF products- I love the formula on this as well; it’s not too wet or goopy, it’s just about right. & the Black is a true dark matte black. I love the felt tip and it’s very sturdy and doesnt come apart like other liquid liner applicators; it’s pointy and precise and perfect for a defined line or winged liner :)
BareMinerals Big & Bright Eyeliner in Intense Black
This has got to be one of the best eyeliners that I have ever used. & trust me, I’ve used plenty in my lifetime! I love the formula, how smooth it is, the pigmentation, how long it lasts and it doesn’t smear or get all runny. It is smudgable, but once you put it on and it sets, it wont budge. I also love that it’s an automatic liner & has a smudger with it! I went through this eyeliner very quick and have yet to repurchase a new one!
My favorite liquid eyeliner would have to be ELF’s Liquid Eyeliner.

Why, yes. Yes, I do. I love wearing blush! Especially during the winter, only because it adds a nice contrast to my already pale & flushed skin… mhmm. I like wearing corals and pinky tones, I feel like those colors suit me the best. Here are some of my favorites:
Benefit’s Bella Bamba (watermelon pink) & Coralista (the name says it all)
ELF’s Tickled Pink (natural, flushed pink with slight golden undertones)
VS Beauty Rush in Fresh Love (subtle pink, may look a bit on the coral-neutral side)
MAC’s Mineralize Blush in Buddy Up (deep fushia pink)
I want more blushes! If any of you would like to recommend any ones that you’re quite fond of, please let me know! :)
