Review: ELF's Everyday Brights 32 Color Collection

Quality: 4 out of 5
Packaging: 4 out 5
Price: $5.00
Where To Buy: Target,
Would I Buy Again: Not Sure

This looks so cute and colorful I couldn't resist buying it when I saw it at Target. There are definitely some pros and cons. About 4 of the colors have large pieces of glitter in them that just don't work. These kinds of shadows always end up on the face and not on the eyes. Some of the colors are a little sheer, which was very disappointing. They could work over a colored or more tack base though, such as the NYX jumbo pencils. In the box I couldn't see that the bottom row is all greys. I don't think I can pull off a grey smoky eye so that is kind of a waste for me. Plus, how many shades of grey do you need for a smoky eye? Not eight.

Other than that I think its a nice palette with a good variety of colors. Is it worth 5 dollars? Yes, I think so. There is a lot to play with and lots of fun summer colors, plus 8 neutrals/browns that can be worn any time and plenty of options for a night time smoky eye.

Revlon Lipstick Haul & Swatches

Revlon's been releasing some gorgeous lip colors lately. I finally gave in and bought some. They cost $8 at the drug store and $6 ish at Target.

Primrose: Beautiful nude pink. The onlip swatch is a bit too light, sorry. Its more like the swatch above, not quite so pale. If you like pink-nudes this one is a must have.

Stormy Pink (might be LE): Part of the matte line, its a sort of sheer bright pink. I've never had a matte lipstick before, I'm not sure I love the formula. I'm going to have to try this out with lipbalm underneath.

Berry Haute: Looks dark purple in the tube, but when you put it on its more of a bright pink. I love this color. Its also very creamy, love the formula. Even though it has a lot of purple, I think its very wearable if you like bright colors.

My 10 favorite lipstick colors

I have... a lot of lipstick and lipgloss, to say the least. These are my top 10 favorites, in the order you see in the photos. I have only half the on lip swatches done, when I do the rest I'll post those photos. I'll try to get them done during spring break.

Rimmel Airy Fairy. This is one of my most used lipsticks. Shimmery light mauve fleshy pink.

MAC Angel. Soft neutral/cool baby pink. Another color I've worn a lot, this is a staple.

Maybelline Born With It. This is a great pink nude mauve thing that is gorgeous. It has a bit of shimmer but not too much. Its a very wearable color. It smells like strawberry starburst, yum.

ELF Runway Pink. Part of their mineral line, this color is a cream nude pink. Very wearable for lighter skin tones, I'm not sure about darker ones.

MAC Blow Dry. I think this is LE but it comes out every so often with new collections. Its a great shear coral.

ELF Classy. Cooler light pink, this is $1 and has a great formula. It smells really good too, like a berry smoothie.

NYX Paris (round lipstick). Bright pink. This is almost dupe for MAC's Lovelorn.

Wet N Wild 525 Retro Pink. This is a great bright cool pink with a little bit of shimmer.

Revlon Berry Haute. This color looks really purple but when you put it on it looks more pink. I love it. Its looks good with my fair skin.

MAC Show Orchid. Hot pink, this is so bright. I think its a PRO color but it was with the regular line for a while & thats when I got it.
