The season for enjoying the great outdoors is upon us, and while for some of us that will include trips to the beach and such, it’s also the season for colorful music festivals (think Coachella). As a classic introvert (who is also extroverted in social situations) I’m not that much into the festival scene, however I do appreciate the colorful, bold makeup that’s inspired by these kinds of events.
All of the products in the elf Cosmetics Studio line are between $3 and $6, making them ultra affordable. And, the quality is not terrible at all! In fact, their brushes and color products are some that I reach for consistently when I’m doing my makeup. There’s the elf Cosmetics Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in Soiree ($3) and elf Cosmetics Cream Eyeliner in Teal Tease ($3), both of which are great. I really love this cream shadow and do need to grab a couple of other colors. The cream liner is easy to apply and doesn’t transfer on my lids. A huge plus!
The elf Cosmetics Beautifully Bare Liquid Highlighter in Illuminating ($4) is a super pretty liquid highlighter that dries down nicely and looks really natural. It’s also something you can use on your eyes and your lips. When I squeeze the tube a little more liquid than highlighter comes out at first, so make sure to shake this tube before using I.
Here’s swatches of the liner, cream shadow, and illuminator.
Then there’s the Tinted Lip Oils ($6) in Berry Kiss and Coral Kiss, which are new to me. These are glosses with lots of shine and color, enriched with Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E, but don’t expect them to last past lunch!
Here’s the look I created with the products I just mentioned. I used a few more shadows in this look that I’ll mention in a separate breakdown.
My Final Thoughts: Whether you’ll be spending your Summer at outdoor music festivals or not, elf Cosmetics has some great options to expand your color makeup horizons.
