TGIF. We survived another week ... high fives all-around.
Today I'm introducing you to two make-up products that I, as a self-proclaimed "e.l.f. connoisseur", think you need in your life: e.l.f. mineral infused mascara ($3) and e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder ($6). Revolutionary.
In this picture I'm wearing the e.l.f. natural false lashes ($1) that I've blogged about before, the mineral mascara and the HD powder mentioned above. I have not touched up this photo and it was taken with no flash.
Anytime anyone asks me what to buy from e.l.f., the first thing I suggest to them is the mineral infused mascara.
Hands down, the best mascara I've tried in years. The wand NEVER gets clumpy and I, IMHO, think it looks identical to Clinique mascara and L'Oreal Voluminous, which is what I swore by prior to discovering this magic mascara wand.
Dare I say it? I will. I like it better than the Dior that Raven sent me. I'm telling y'all, just because a make-up company slaps a hefty price tag on something, it does not mean it's better. You can get quality products for a fraction of the price.
Now, let's chit-chat about the $6 e.l.f. Studio HD Powder. Looks like so:
HD Powder? This is it's budget friendly twin. HD powder is a translucent loose powder that sets your foundation while creating a "soft focus" effect to the skin and masks fine lines and imperfections.
Personally, I've never tried the Make-Up Forever version because let's be real, I'm not spending 30 bones on powder. However, I've heard/read they are identical products. Just for y'all, I did a quick Google search and found a comparison review of both here and here.
I can tell you that I'm a huge fan of the e.l.f. HD powder, but instead of using the application poof it comes with, I prefer to apply with the e.l.f. Professional Total Face Brush ($1). Reviewed by moi here.
