It seems taboo to buy quality makeup at a stores like Big Lots or the Dollar Store, but when they have hard to find items from one of my favorite brands its hard to pass up! When my sister told me she saw e.l.f. products at the Dollar Tree I had to find out for myself :). I was pleasantly surprised they had a Studio Line products there and for only a buck (obviously lol).
1. 2-in-1 Conditioning Gloss in Fanatic
2. Glossy Gloss in Ballet Slippers
I was at Big Lots this past weekend and decided to check out their selection of discount makeup products and bought these e.l.f. items plus a philosophy product!
1. e.l.f. Eye Primer & Line Sealer
2. e.l.f. Lip Balm in Pink and Rose
3. Philosophy Lit From Within Healthy Cream Blush in Feel Warm All Over
By the way this blush is amazing! I read a lot of reviews on this after I bought it (kinda ass backwards I guess lol) and it didn’t seem to work too well for most. It’s not a very bright blush once applied, but it gives a very lovely flushed cheek :).
As always I stopped by Target for some makeup and got these :)…
You can never have enough makeup brushes :)
1. e.l.f. Tinted Moisturizer in Nude
2. e.l.f. Eyeshadow Brushes
3. e.l.f. Defining Eye Brush
I also swatched the lippies…
Do you purchase any products at discount stores? Leave a comment!
I had already purchased NYX Glitter pigments and adored them, so naturally I knew it was safe to say the pearl pigments would be just as gorgeous! I ordered a few of them the other day and got them last night, but since it was rainy crap day here I was mostly just being lazy. All I can say is these pigments went beyond my expectations and I love em’.
L to R: Nude Pearl, Mocha Pearl, Charcoal Pearl, Very Pink Pearl, Jade Pearl and Turquoise Pearl.
These swatch beautifully and trust me you do not need a lot, these are very dense and vibrant powders.
Today I wanted to play around and try out these pigments so I did a very simple look. I used Jade Pearl Mania on my lids and lower lashline, and black liquid liner to finish off the look. I also used the Nude Pearl Mania for a brow bone highlighter.
Now for the final look…(drum role lol)
To make sure the pearl pigment would stick with no fall out I used Maybelline Color Tattoo in Edgy Emerald.
I paired this bright eye look with a nude lip color but you can use whichever color you want :)
What I used:
Skin79 Hot Pink Super+ B.B. Cream
Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation in #225
Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Pressed Powder
Pür Minerals Glow Powder
Too Faced Blush in Pinch My Petals
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Edgy Emerald
NYX Pearl Mania in Jade Pearl and Nude Pearl
NYX Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner
Too Faced Size Queen Mascara
ULTA Lipstick in In the Buff
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Natural
If you don’t own these awesome pigments you gotta get your hands on em’! They come in 30 colors total at $3 a bottle.
