First world problems,
I ran out of my foundation and powder and my coins was saying “girl we got bills to pay” so I head to my local Target ( best store ever) and look at what my low cost options were. I just needed something to last me till I was able to get what I really wanted in makeup. So of course the cheapest brand is elf cosmetics. I have been using the products for years, when I started blogging it was one of the first brands I would write about, why? because it was super affordable.
Honestly I hadn’t bought elf in a few years though, I had gotten so much makeup through PR and trying out different brands I had no reason tto buy. Let me tell you they really upped the anty! I feel like the brand has just gotten better and better over the years.
So I picked up a couple of the Beautifully Bare face products, the HD powder , Pore less face primer, mattifying powder and setting spray.
I usually have a issue with the complexion products from elf as the shade range is pretty limited , but i did find the foundation and powder to match pretty well I got the shade Medium/Dark .
The Beautifully Bare foundation and powder is light coverage and good for even out your skin. I mixed it with the HD powder and i found it controlled my oil and when followed up with powder covered pretty well.
The primer worked fine and smelled like a spa, the setting spray worked fine as well, i liked the mattefying powder but the amount is so small you tend to go through it fast.
All products were under $10 and I felt for most of it I got the bang for my buck. I will say though compared to other more expensive products you do get a smaller amount so It doesn’t last long.
Not bad for beauty on a budget!
