Well ladies if your balling on a budget like myself, you’re constantly looking for fabulous fashion and makeup essentials at a lower price point than what Sephora and Mac have to offer. If you visit myhellofalife.com you don’t have to do much work, because I like to do it for you!
I found an amazing makeup line with price points that start at $1! Yes, that’s right, makeup in all colors and shades that starts at $1. This fabulous and frugal line is called E.L.F. cosmetics, which stands for Eyes, Lips and Face. This line has an array of beautifully vivid eye shadow colors, blush and much much more.
It is an international cosmetics brand founded by Joseph Shamah and Scott Vincent Borba based in New York City. This makeup is 100% cruelty free and has been reviewed by major magazines such as Glamour, Allure, and InStyle. The company was started in 2004 with 13 products, but now boasts over 300.
I first came across this brand on my favorite shopping website Haute Look, I saw eye shadows for $1 and decided I had to purchase. I was a little skeptical because the products were so inexpensive, but I know as well as anyone that just because a product doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, doesn’t mean it is not a quality product.
The eye shadow was a hit, and will remain a staple in my makeup arsenal. The colors are vivid and it has the same staying power as my beloved MAC eye shadows. I did notice that I had to apply a little more on the brush to get the same amount of color as my more expensive shadows, but for $1 I didn’t mind one bit. I added primer underneath the shadow and it did not crease or fall into my eye’s creases the entire night.
Overall, I would say that this makeup line is worth a try. It is a much more affordable option to the more pricey makeup brands and it is just as good! Check it out for yourself at www.eyeslipsface.com.
