e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadows Review

I bought three of these colors at Target a while back because I’m always looking for new eye products. They were $3 a piece and I think that’s a fair price for the size of the product (.12 oz, compare to Urban Decay’s eyeshadow singles that run about $18 for .05 oz.). The packaging is nice and easy to open. From what I’ve tried, the colors are hit or miss but I definitely plan on trying more. Here is my experience with the colors I bought…

Bark: This color has become a total staple for me. If I somehow managed to run out of this product I would buy it again, although I don’t think I will need to considering the generous amount of product. This is a very shimmery brown color and it looks great with so many different eyeshadow colors. Most days I wear a cream eyeshadow on my eyelid with a warm brown/mauve in the crease and I don’t feel complete until I’ve blended some of this color on the outer part of my eyelid.

Pixie: I had high hopes for this color, I’m a huge fan of colors like Urban Decay’s Sin and Virgin so I was hoping to find another shimmery pink lid color now that Urban Decay sold out to L’Oreal. It’s a pretty color but not as pigmented as I thought it would be. I find myself having to dig my brush into the product to get the coverage that I want.

Burnt plum: I’m obsessed with this color. I tend to avoid colored eyeshadows because I find that they can easily look clown-ish. However, this eyeshadow is just neutral enough that I have no problem using it on a regular day. It’s very pigmented and I love blending it on the outer part of my eyelid when I’m wearing cream, brown or gold eye makeup. I think this is a fun yet easy way to add some color to your makeup.

Overall, I think these eyshadows are worth a try. I use two of them on a regular basis and I hope to get more colors in the future.

Fall Outfit of the Day

Cardigan: Goodwill (from Target), Printed Top: Aeropostale, Gray Cami: JC Penney, Jeans: Hollister, Boots: Charlotte Russe, Neff beanie: Tilly’s

I always enjoy when I find a new outfit that actually looks good. Often when I’m trying out new outfit combinations I feel uncomfortable because it’s not what I’m used to or I think it looks odd. I’m pretty happy with the way this one turned out. Today it was still fairly warm but not as hot as it was a few weeks ago. The three quarter length sleeves and light weight of the cardigan made it comfortable. I haven’t worn this shirt very much but I think it will be great for all seasons. It’s a tank top but works well for layering.

Now my new favorite accessory, my beanie!! I have never had a beanie that stays on my head like this one, I’m thinking of doing a review on it sometime. I love it so much and it makes all of my outfits feel perfect to me. The fall colors and boots make it great for the season too!
