ELF at Target

I was at my local Target today, and realized they now have ELF makeup. They had a decent selection of the $1 ELF line and they also had some of the $3 studio line. Both included a variety of brushes and tools as well as makeup. On an end cap of one of the cosmetics aisles, they had some ELF palettes and gift sets.

I purchased 2 items, a mineral eyeshadow duo with brush and a palette. The mineral eyeshadow duo is just like the other ones I purchased with my Groupon (read about them in this post) only it is they set of greens. It is called the Green Fields Eyeshadow Collection and comes with Outdoorsy and Earthy shadows and an eyeshadow brush. Outdoorsy is a shimmery black based green and Earthy is a shimmery lime color. I love the eyeshadow brushed I received in the other 2 kits I purchased, I have used them almost every day. I don't find them to have any shedding at all.

The palette I got is called the everyday basics palette. It is a mirrored palette with 32 different shades of eyeshadow and a little double ended sponge applicator. I am not too fond of the teeny sponge applicators that come with eyeshadows, but if I end up using it and forming an opinion I will let you know. The eyeshadow shades vary in color from peach to plum to navy blue. A couple of them are very sparkly, with chunks of glitter. Many of them appear to have shimmer and several are matte. I have not used this palette at all yet, not even to swatch it. I will do this as soon as possible so I can post pictures and let you know what the texture and pigmentation is like.

Both items I purchased were $5. You can purchase them from Target's website here. On Target's website you should be able to search with your zipcode and find out if they are available in store near you.

Oh, and FYI, it appears ELF is having a 50% off Mineral and Studio sale, today only with the code WINNER.
