Hey people! I went to one of my favorite places on earth a couple days ago! Target! Now I usually shy away from mass brand makeup as it doesn't catch my eye most times because I don't like browsing through unorganized/messy displays. This Target, however, was pretty organized and I saw these two kits on an end-cap so I snatched them up. I picked up the E.L.F. Beauty Book Smoky Eye Edition and the E.L.F. Duo Smokey Eye Kit.
Now, the pigmentation is good but they are messy and a lot of shadow puffs up when you try to use them. But for $5, seriously who cares? Not me! I think these shadows would be ideal for someone who is new to makeup and want to try different shades out without spending a lot of money. These kits would also be great for beauties on a budget. I technically got 20 eyeshadow, 1 brush, 1 applicator and an eyeliner for $10. Seriously!
See swatches after the jump!
The E.L.F. Beauty Book Smoky Eye Edition comes with 12 Eye Shadows, 1 Eyeliner and an Eye Shadow applicator. Inside the "book" there is also a guide for application. There is also a small mirror included.
