ELF Mascara Review

ELF Mascara Review.

Mascara for only one dollar??? I know right, it seems too good to be true.

ELF cosmetics is a steal!

If you are familiar with E.L.F. (Eyes Lip Face) cosmetics, you know that it’s a pretty stand up brand at a really good price – most of their products are $1. Some can set you back a whopping $3! ELF mascara is un dinero! Score!

The mascara has two sides, Waterproof & Regular, so you’re basically getting 2 mascaras in one…and what Budget Socialite doesn’t like that deal?

But, is it any good?

First, I tried the waterproof side. I like to think of myself an expert in mascara handling, however, I had a hard time with this wand. The rule of thumb is, how the wand looks is how it’s supposed to make your lashes look. I prefer the spikey wands because I like my lashes to be separated. I also like to get as close to the lash line as possible. I was a bit clumsy with this wand and got mascara on my eyelids. It really is waterproof, because only makeup remover got this stuff off. I also worked out with it on and can tell you that it’s also sweat proof.

elf mascara with and withoutConclusion

It’s a decent mascara and at only $1, you really can’t complain. I’m usually a bit skeptical of cosmetics for dirt cheap, but ELF has a good reputation and you can’t go wrong. You can’t compare it to say Lancome’s Oscillating mascara or the like, it just wouldn’t be fair. Overall, if I were in a pinch and needed mascara, sparing a buck for this would be the perfect solution.

So that’s it! My ELF Mascara Review. What do you think? Will you be trying this one dollar wonder? Let us know in the comments

      They have the ingredients listed on their website. You can even compare theirs to a more expensive brand to see if it is worth it.

    I always just buy drug store brand mascaras and they work perfectly fine. I’ve never tried this brand though. I absolutely hate waterproof mascara- I wore it once and couldn’t get it off for like three days, and it was painful!

      Uh, yes, waterproof mascara is like concrete! You need a good makeup remover or baby oil.

    Oh yes, I checked it out. Thank you. They have some great deals. I will have to do more research on a few things, but definately work doing for the savings.

      I agree. For the price they are a great value!

    Sigh!, I am highly allergic to cosmetics of any kind. As a result I haven’t worn makeup, including mascara for many years. Even so this does sound like a great product:-)
