Quickie post: some late night thinking out loud

Hi guys!

Thanks, as always, for stopping by and reading my posts! I really appreciate all the inquiries, emails, comments, shares and likes I receive! This blog wouldn’t be much without that critical feedback 🙂 Keep it coming!

 

… I was just restlessly sitting here thinking about how much I love writing, updating, editing and posting new content on this site. It’s literally like a dear diary sometimes.

 

It’s such release to sit here and think out loud. I think, I type, I dont like it, I delete. Too easy. And then I start all over again…

 

…I’m dying to purchase and write about these new NARS Audacious matte lipsticks. I think I’m going to raid Sephora tomorrow for some new purchases. I’ve also been seeing a lot of the holiday kits and palettes… And we all know how much of a sucker I am for an awesome palette.

I’ll keep you guys updated on my purchases. Keep a look out for some more “old blog content” posts, I have a few more id like to add to rachealdoucettebeauty.com

Stay fabulous babes 🙂

Thanks for reading!

Old Blog Content

Hi There Everyone!

 

Recently, while going through my old blogspot.com site, I found some articles I had written that I think are so fun, they needed to be on rachealdoucettebeauty.com! Check out this write up on ELF products I wrote a while back and let me know what you think!

 

Cheap Trick- ELF Review

In my Make Up For Ever post I mentioned a product that is comparable to the HD finishing powder. Well, here’s a few products that I think are worth the review and write up. I would highly recommend checking these bad boys out. 

ELF HD Finishing Powder- Easily comparable to the HD Make Up For Ever powder. I actually bought this one day at Target just to compare. At $8, I wasn’t too concerned about tossing it in the junk drawer if it sucked. I was beyond surprised and super excited when I discovered how similar the two products were. Best part, its only a fraction of the price and double the size and this powder lasts me way longer. Awesome find. I have seen ELF products for retail in a few different stores, including Target. The powder retails for $6 on the ELF website and you can purchase itHERE.



ELF Makeup Cleansing Cloths- Ok, so I feel like these cleansing cloths are basically all the same. I chose to buy these because of the $3 price point. Enough said. Non-greasy and works great, even on waterproof liners and mascara. Purchase them HERE

ELF Studio Powder Brush- Of all the brushes I own, this might be my favorite. And guess how much I paid for it?! $3. I use it for foundation to get an airbrush effect. I have yet to see a bristle fall out. Find it HERE


ELF Cream Eyeliner- These little jars are great. I would compare it to MAC’s fluidline gel liners- incredibly similar. I’ve only seen colors Black and Brown in stores however, the ELF website has a whole variety of colors to choose from. Retails for $3. Purchase them HERE

ELF Essential Waterproof Eyeliner Pen- Compare to MAC’s Penultimate Eye Liner. A felt tipped eye liner pen that makes application a breeze and lines sharp as can be. As much as I loved the MAC pen, it only lasted for about a week before it dried out. Granted, a felt tip pen is going to dry up rather fast but I really thought for the price, it’d last a bit longer. The ELF felt tip liner outlasted MAC’s by weeks. The color is not as intense on the first swipe, but a second application and viola! The cat eye has never been easier. Retails for $2 and at that price, who even cares how fast it dries up! Purchase yoursHERE



ELF Studio Blush- I dont know what it is about this little compact of blush that I love, but I do. It’s inexpensive and the colors are great. It retails for $3. I would suggest finding a shade similar to your everyday color and compare them. I’ve ditched my Nars Orgasm (fave) and picked up one of these guys a few months back… I’ve been loving it ever since. Purchase ELF Studio BlushHERE



These are just a few products that I find very comparable to more expensive lines. I’m basically a makeup junkie so I buy, buy, buy. But it’s always nice to come across a product regardless if it’s drugstore or department store, that deliver. There’s nothing worse (ahem, MAC’s eyeliner pen) than a product that fails or just isn’t at all what you thought it would be.

Have a product that you think is comparable to a higher end line? Comment below and let’s discuss it!
