Products I’ve Hit Pan On:: e.l.f. Contour Palette

PicMonkey Collage789


e.l.f. Says::

This beautiful contour palette holds 4 gorgeous shades to mix and match for a custom, defined look. The pigmented colors are designed for contouring, shading, sculpting, brightening and highlighting the eyes, cheekbones, nose, and jawline to slim and enhance features. Infused with Vitamin E to help nourish for gorgeous-looking skin.


Lara Says:: Well as you can see I really don’t like this product at all!  This is my go to for travel as it has a bronzer (lightest brown shade), contour (deepest brown shade), under-eye setting powder (the yellow powder)  and a highlight (white powder).  This thing is $6 which comes out to $1.50 per pan, I mean you can’t beat that!!!  I’ve already bought another one and it is waiting in the wings for me to use the rest of this baby up!


Buy on the e.l.f website for $6   OR check out your local Wal-Mart or Target

The Best of 2015 Makeup Edition


I can’t believe its that time of year and that another year is coming to a close and a new one is beginning.  I’ve decided to break this up into a few parts that will be posted over the next week or so.  If I’ve reviewed a product or used it in a tutorial I’ll do my best to link that as well. I also am trying to create several looks with all the products that I’ve chosen as my favorites so you can see them on a real live person 🙂
