elf Products: Not Being A Creeper, Just Pretty Shadows And A Multi-Purpose Stick

Do you learn a lot about deals and new products from beauty blogs? That’s what the point of reading beauty blogs is all about! So, when I read that Kmart had many of their elf products at half off (as if they are not so darn affordable already), I wanted to see if there was anything I just might be interested in. This is what I came away with…

NOTD EOTD 067 Do you know I love multi-tasking beauty products? Elf’s All Over Color Stick looked really pretty, so it went into the basket. There were only three different shade colors left for the eye shadow singles: Dusk, Sage and Golden Glow. Those were perfect colors to try out.

50 Cents? I spent $2 on this entire haul. I can find that much money digging around in my car console or under the seat!

NOTD EOTD 068 NOTD EOTD 070They are not tiny in size and have just the right amount of sparkle to be both bold and chic.

Here’s Dusk…

NOTD EOTD 074 NOTD EOTD 076Purple? Blue? Smokey Grey? Yes!! I think I have only gone twice in the past week without wearing this one. The pigment is really good, as are all of the shadows I bought.

Sage is a swell green to use to make an unique smokey eye…

NOTD EOTD 078I didn’t do a close-up of Golden Glow; silly me. But I did get swatches of them all…

NOTD EOTD 080All Over Color Stick in Pink Lemonade is just too perfect of a color for me…

NOTD EOTD 071 NOTD EOTD 073Since I usually wear mineral foundation, I don’t use cream blush but rarely. Now, I have been experimenting with using just a cream blush and setting powder; no foundation. Pink Lemonade looks so natural on me that I have been wearing that look often. I haven’t tried it as a shadow yet but it is lovely as a lip tint. The stick isn’t super creamy but it does slide on without a hitch.

Pink Lemonade works so well with my skin tone…

NOTD EOTD 084The shadows are on the flaky side but the pigment is super rich and I don’t find the fallout to be so terrible that a fan brush can’t whisk the crumbs away. The All Over Color Stick did much better as a lip tint than blush as far as staying power. However, I will note that I used the blush very sparingly.

Later, I found a four-shadow pan at Target to put these shadows in. It all looks very smart.

Fair deal for just $2, don’t ya think?

    I don’t have a Kmart nearby. What a great deal. Love what you purchased. Super swatches!!

    • Kmarts are few, that’s true. They will be gone, I think, very soon. Thank you, your comments mean a lot to me! 🙂
