elf Haul Part III

Last part of my elf haul are the Essential products I bought. These are definitely what tend to be the most hit or miss from elf, I find. They're only $1 each.

First up, Lip Stain in "Crimson Crush". This didn't have great reviews but I do love a stain so I ordered it anyway. Most reviews said they found it dry but I wasn't too worried about that. I often just apply a bit of balm over a stain if it's dry. That said, I do have a big issue with this lip stain. It applies SO unevenly! It's very pigmented, I was impressed by that, but it's so hard to not have it look patchy. I honestly will probably throw this one out...it's that bad. :(

Yuck!

Next we have a Glitter Eyeshadow in "Party Animal". I'm not sure what drew me to this one, probably a swatch I saw. It's nothing spectacular but it is for sure glittery! You can apply it wet or dry but be sure to use primer if you want it to last. It's definitely worth more than $1!

I just had to pick up another Liquid Eyeliner. I have this in black and "Coffee" already. This shade is "Forest Green". These have great staying power as you can see below! If you can do one solid line, they go on very opaque but if you have to do shorter strokes it may be a bit patchy.  Just wait until it dries and then go over any bald spots. I really like this colour! A metallic green.

 
smudged. Yeah, it did not budge!
