e.l.f. Cosmetics is on fire lately with their newest products and collections! Have you noticed? One of their newest collections is their ACTIVE Collection wrapped in bright green packaging that is geared toward an active lifestyle and contains sweat-resistant formulas that are hydrating, light weight and won’t clog pores! I am a bit torn on the idea between being very unique yet slightly gimmicky- for a collection! The collection ranges from refreshing wipes to eyeliner pencils that stay put! Who else is pretty excited about this new collection?
This month, in my latest e.l.f. #BeautySquad box, I received a sampling of this affordable & innovative collection and am happy to share with you!
Sweat Resistant Mascara & Brow Duo – $6.00
First of all, this is pretty awesome considering it’s a dual purpose product making putting it in your gym bag a no brainer – one less product to carry around with you! This dual product helps set brows and lashes while withstanding the day with a long-lasting, waterproof mascara – that doesn’t smear or smudge. It’s paired with a clear, sweat-resistant gel to comb and feather brows!
Workout Ready Hydration Stick – $8.00
Maybe you’re like me and wondering what exactly a hydration stick is…. it’s a stick to hydrate and refresh your skin when it needs a boost. Infused with Shea Butter, Cocoa, Aloe and Grape for an instant cooling sensation. To use it you twist up and glide the stick across your face, neck, and arms to cool down and boost skin on-the-go, and blend in with fingers. Has anyone tried anything like this? It seems very different and I question how necessary this is, but then again, I am not at the gym everyday.
Workout Ready Lip & Cheek Palette – $8.00
The last thing I think of when working out is what kind of lip product I am going to wear, but I think that this palette is also meant for days that are hot when you feel like your face is melting off! It says that it’s a formula that does not clog pores and breathable. I would never wear lipstick to the gym, ever. Even if the regular gym hottie was there. That’s just too strange for me!
Quick Cooling & Cleansing Wipes – $3.00
Infused with Aloe Vera, I like that these are fairly affordable – containing 20 sheets per pack. Apparently they are meant to help you go from work out to work – or party, or …”glam.” I think these are a great idea if a shower after working out was not possible, otherwise I am not too sure!
Post-Workout Cool Down Mist – $8.00
This cool down mist is to help give yourself the post-workout glow! It also says you can use throughout the day to keep makeup looking fresh. It’s also sweat resistant and does not clog pores.
What are YOUR thoughts on this collection? Gimmicky or innovative – or a mix of both?
