EOTD: Easy & Affordable Fall Eye Look Using E.L.F Cosmetics!

Drugstore Fall EOTD

Easy & Affordable Fall Eye Look Using E.L.F Cosmetics
Hey everyone! Today I have another Eye Of The Day (or EOTD for short) to share with you! :-) This one is also affordable and accessible because these palettes should be available at your local Target for $10 each. I used the ELF Cosmetics Mad For Matte 2 Palette and the ELF Cosmetics Sunset Prism Palette. They make the perfect pair because they're in the same color family and you have the best of both worlds when it comes to shadow finishes: an all matte palette and an all shimmer palette!

I went for an orange-brown as my transition and applied the second to last shade from the prism palette all over the lid for a beautiful pink touch. I then threw the matte plum in the crease and the shimmery champagne in the inner corner and Wah-La! ;-)

I love these palettes, definitely recommend getting them! Stay tuned for more posts coming soon and thanks for stopping by!

Review: Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette! (Swatches + Looks!)

Keeping it Peachy!

Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette

I'm back! :-)
It's been a while since I last blogged and I absolutely missed it! Even though I haven't been blogging I've been accumulating some makeup here and there so stay tuned for more reviews! Now that it's the Fall season I wanted to review a palette that seems perfect for this time of year. The Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes is an all matte palette full of gorgeous warm tones... I couldn't say no! The range of colors was very well thought out and the packaging is simply adorable (& smells likes peaches!). It retails for $45 making each eyeshadow pan less than $4 which is a great deal.

There's 11 completely matte shadows and 1 more satiny shade (Peach Sangria) but on the eye it pretty much looks matte. All of them swatched really well! The texture is pretty smooth and buttery. I've tried almost every color on my eyes and they blend really well too. I love the darker shades in this palette! I felt like the Sweet Peach palette was lacking those so I'm happy to see them in this palette.

Here's a side by side of the palettes. Some of the colors are similar but not identical so no worries there. The darker shades in the Sweet Peach are shimmery which I tend to avoid when deepening up a look so I definitely see myself reaching for the Just Peachy palette for those shades.

Here are all the shades swatched. The deeper shades are very buildable so don't be alarmed by the pigmentation in the swatch. The lighter peachy shades look amazing as transition colors! When I get ready for work I just blend one in the crease and call it a day. Simple but it makes you look like you tried haha. Here are some looks I created with the palette:

Even though I love a metallic shade on the lid there's something about an all matte look! I love how the looks came out and they lasted all day, even through a wedding, haha.

Bottom line: I'm really happy with this palette! I love the idea of an all matte palette and the fact that this one is full of warm shades it's even better. The packaging is on point (per usual with Too Faced!) and the formulation is great. Can't wait to continue to play with it this fall season! :-)
