Face of the Day + ELF Matte Lip Color in Natural

Apologies in advance for the horrible photos today, it seems like no matter where I take photos in my house, the lighting is always off! As for today's face of the day, I had some extra time to get ready before work so I decided to actually put a little more effort in my eye makeup and rediscovered one of my favorite Elf products. I haven't bought new makeup in a while so I've been trying to use my old favorites and luckily found this Elf retractable lipstick and fell in love with the color all over again. Here are some details on the makeup and read on for more about the Elf lipstick.

-Lush Eau De Roma Toner
-Bobbi Brown Corrector 
-Mac Pro Long Wear Foundation
-Too Faced Glamour To Go II Blush (not sure of the name!)

-Anastasia Brows in Bloom Palette

-Elf Primer 
-Naked 2 palette, Verve all over the eye, Snakebite on outer corner, Busted used as liner on bottom lid, Foxy used as highlighter on inner corners and brow bone
-Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Liner in Black
-Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara

-Elf Matte Lip Color in Natural

I normally use my Elf primer every day and have a few brushes from them that I consider to be essentials but other then that I stopped buying Elf products because I found the line to get boring. Don't get me wrong, I love the cheap prices but many of their products lacked good quality and pigmentation so I opted out of it for a while. I actually forgot that I still had this in my collection and I used it today in place of a typical beige nude because I feel that this is closer to my lip color and gives me the nude lip look without making me look pale and ghostly. Although I consider it to be a a more pinky-nude it does go with practically any makeup look so it is quite a color that can be taken from day to night. It does settle into fine lines on the lips so I do recommend some chapstick before applying but other then that for the price it's a good deal! It's also retractable and has a slanted tip so you can apply it easier and is one of the better products from Elf.

What do you guys think of Elf makeup? Does the cheap prices make up for some of their bad quality products? 

Until next time lovelies,
