One reason why I love Elf

No, I'm not talking about one of these guys:

I'm talking about EyesLipsFace, an awesome makeup brand that is actually affordable for even the tightest college budget. I recently ran out of my favorite mascara (Maybelline's LashBlast, which is also pretty awesome), and for some reason decided to try something new. Maybe it was the fact that there was no makeup on sale at Target...$9.00 for some black goop in a colorful tube? No thanks. Anyway, I found myself wandering over to the ELF section, where I found this:

No, not my tea, although it was pretty good too. It's ELF mineral mascara for only $3. Not a typo. I bought it with a hint of skepticism, wondering how well a $3 mascara could work for my lashes. But then I put it on and realized that it's pretty dang great. See the proof below. 

Sorry my before photos are a bit blurry. I think it's a combination of an old camera, incompetent user, and barely-there lashes. But you can tell it definitely made a difference. BTW all I'm wearing here is the mascara. There's something about makeup-less closeups that makes me shudder. So y'all should feel blessed that I shared these.

Anyway, my conclusion is this: ELF mineral mascara will not make you look like you have falsies. But it's perfect for day makeup, and I'm sure with more coats (this was only one coat...seriously) it could become more intense. It swiped on easily and I didn't have any problems with clumping. The color was nice and dark. For $3 I'll definitely be picking up another tube when this one runs out. That is, unless I find another treasure in Target. That seems to happen to me a lot. 

It's been a super busy week, but after 1 more hour here at work I'll be free for the weekend. Mine included a Blake Shelton concert with The Boyfriend last night. Of course I forgot my camera. Dumb. Tonight we're hopefully going to pick up an adorable baby dog. Then tomorrow is the horned frogs' first football game of the season AND first in our gorgeous renovated stadium! I'm excited for what the next 60 hours has to bring. :)
Anyone else have exciting plans?

  1. I use Shiseido mascara because it is a flexible volume mascara that creates a natural-looking curl in my eyelashes. I purchased this at https://www.boutiqueken.com/cat/beauty-eyes/pro/464264.
