Makeup Wars: $20 Makeup Challenge

This “Makeup Wars” challenge is the “$20 Makeup Challenge” – which is basically “How would you replace your makeup if you suddenly lost all of yours and had only $20 to replace your products?”. This wasn’t too difficult for me, because I am already a huge fan of elf cosmetics, especially their Studio Line. Check out what I picked up:

Now take a look at what the rest of the “Makeup Wars” team came up with:

    What a great video and use og $20 to get all your makeup. I WISH I had found a palette like that when I was shopping.ย  You look beautiful, especially your eyes!!!

    1. Paula says:

      Thank you!! I was so impressed – my eyes lasted from 10am, thru an outdoor evening event, until I got home around 10pm!

    2. Paula says:

      Also, Sithy, that “Dawn” elf cream shadow would totally fit in with all your other taupes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Beauty411 says:

    Whoa–that palette is huge for $5.00!ย  Can’t believe it–great find!

    1. Paula says:

      I *actually* passed it up first time I saw it, but it stuck in my ย head so I had to go back! So glad I did!

  3. Brooke says:

    great job!!ย  I love that you did a video. ย 

    1. Paula says:

      Thanks! I thought it was easier for me to describe that way. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Paula says:

    Thanks, Teri! I’m so excited I was able to snag it!

  5. Paula says:

    Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚ It crazy how comparable the studio line is to the higher $$ lines – even the packaging is close!

  6. Great video! wish I could find those elf cream shadows!

    1. Paula says:

      I found it at Target – not very many colors in store, tho. You can always grab’em on the elf website & they are constantly doing discounts.

  7. Paula says:

    You really should give it a try – it lasted pretty well, too. It’s worth $3 to give it a shot. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. […] really do adore the “Studio” line of products from elf (*as you could tell from my $20 Makeup Challenge), including the Complexion Brush, which comes in second to my “C” brush, as I only have […]
