**I also apologize for the way stupid spacing. Thanks, Blogger.

Blending wedges - What a rockin' deal! 8 wedges in hard plastic package that works as a storage container until you use the rest up. Blending wedges aren't anything to write home about, I know. So I won't say too much, other than they work, and I am glad I bought them :]

Nail Polish in Clear -Went on great, stayed on, and didn't yellow.

Nail Polish in Plum - Great color, and lasted great on my toes.

Nail Polish in Nude -Love this color too. Didn't last as long, because it was on my fingernails, and I beat my hands to death and chip the crap out of any polish that I wear!

Nail Buffing Block - Honestly, I haven't used this yet. I will save this review for later.


Dual Pencil Sharpener -Again, great deal for a makeup bag staple. I never had one before, because I always shared with my mom or friends before! Time for my own. Good choice.

Concealer and Foundation Brushes -I have never used these types of brushes before, and have always wanted to try them. Without having tried them before, I could never bring myself to dropping $20-30 on a brush from from Sephora or the department store makeup counter--even $10 from Target. But for a buck (50 cents with my coupon!) I figured I could even hate these things and not feel guilty. I actually really like them! I don't use them every day because it takes much longer to do my makeup when I involve brushes, and don't just use my fingers as blending tools. When I have the extra time though, I discovered it really is worth the effort--it gives that airbrushed effect. Perfect for hot dates and days that I don't work at 4am :]

Shine Eraser oil blotting sheets (50 sheets) - Another great deal on something that I never bother buying, because an $8 pack of 3" x 2" tissue seems just wrong. But $1 (and for me-- 50 cents!) it was a great addition to my purse. Even Matt can use one every once and awhile... However, as a side note, did you know that you can use toilet seat covers in a pinch? Brillz.

Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 in Light Beige -I was really excited to try this one out. I am always intrigued by tinted moisturizers, but again, didn't want to invest in something I may hate. It was another 50 cent risk that I couldn't resist! I liked the way it went on, and the color and coverage were as I hoped they would be. I especially liked it when I used the foundation brush to apply it. The disappointing part was that after a few days of using it, I noticed that my cheeks were breaking out way more than normal. I realized that this product was the only change to my regular skin routine, so I quit, and sure enough, my skin cleared up. So far though, this was my only miss with anything ELF I have tried. 50 cent loss.

Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter in Glow/Light- This stuff is awesome. I like to blend the two tones together on the back of my hand before I apply it. If my circles are really bad, I put the highlighter on first, then cover it with the concealer. Make sure you put moisturizer on first, don't overdo it, and don't apply more if it has already dried--it can get cakey or rub itself off.

Eyeliner in Black -For $3, this was good. I was especially intrigued by this because it is 100% mineral based. It went on well and I like the color. However, it fades throughout the day, and if I don't have eyeshadow on, it transfers to my upper eyelids. It's good for a day that I just want natural looking makeup, or am not wearing much of it. I don't hate it enough to throw it away, but I probably won't buy it again.
