Discount Haul Swatches and Review

So like I had previously posted I went out and spent about 25 bucks on a ton of makeup that was super cheap.  I have been doing more discount makeup shopping this past week and will have another discount haul with swatches and reviews coming up.

Here are swatches of the Elf Smoky Eye Book and the neutral Book.  These colors are very nicely pigmented.  They are a little dusty as all Elf shadows are but that doesn't bother me one bit.  I do have a little trouble with the lighter colors in the neutral book.  They aren't as pigmented as the darker ones and a lot of them match my skin so they are almost invisible.  I have pretty tan skin with very yellow undertone so I think it would be fine for most other people.

Next is the single eyeshadows, blush, lipstains and pencils.

The Jordana white shadow is very pigmented I will only be using this as a brow bone color.  The eye pencil in Just Pearly is what I love to use on my waterline.  It has great staying power and is the perfect peach color.  The jumbo pencil is great for an eyeshadow base.

The Rimmel eyeshadows are awesome.  Great color and staying power.  The blush I swatched as 3 separate colors and then a swatch of all the colors combine.  It is very pretty and can even double as an eyeshadow.

The lipstains I like but they aren't my favorite.  I don't like my lips to feel gooey so this is a great product for me.  They are a lot darker than I thought they would be.

With and without flash.  The Rimmel blush almost matches my skin tone.

  1. what an awesome haul! the only thing i dont like is the lipstains though. drugstore lipstains have been totally ruined for me. they all suck.

  2. Yeah I'm finding that out lol, they don't stay that long and they become blotchy
