Boy do I love me a pretty highlighter! It took me a while to finally get my hands on the e.l.f. Heart Defensor Highlighter Palette, but it was so worth the wait.

This beautiful highlighter duo contains 2 complimentary shades in Coffee and Cream. One offers a nice subtle glow and the other a more sun-kissed bronze glow. Both are nicely pigmented. My swatches are just one swipe! They’re so soft and buttery that they just glided onto my skin. I mostly use the lighter shade which I’m assuming is Cream. It’s more subtle and natural looking, but it’s no lightweight. She packs a bit of a punch. I think the darker shade is a little too dark for me right now, but I can see it working nicely come Summer.

The packaging is what really caught my eye. I’m loving the beautiful rose gold like packaging. It’s so pretty! I really wish e.l.f. would do more pretty packaging like this. Because it looks super nice sitting on top of my vanity! I love displaying the prettier pieces in my collection.

Overall, I’d have to say this is easily one of my favorite products from e.l.f. Everything about this highlighter is a win to me. The beautiful packaging, the mirror, the shades which can be used together or individually, and the quality. I’m very impressed.

I find that a lot of drugstore brands are really stepping up their game these days. Maybe not packaging wise, but with their eye-catching shades and surprisingly nice quality. I’d still like to see some pretty packaging, but I suppose it really doesn’t matter if the quality is there along with nice shade selections.

e.l.f. had recently sent me a nice box of goodies. This beautiful little duo in the shade Tea For Two along with another in the shade Peach Squad really stood out. I just couldn’t wait to dig in and swatch them. The duos come with a shimmery shade and a matte shade. I found them both to be soft and nicely pigmented. The shimmery shade was more pigmented than the matte and it pops even more when you apply with a dampened brush. The matte was a little on the powdery side and needed some building up, but it built up rather nicely. You can probably tell from my swatch.

Overall, I’m really impressed with these duos. I think the shades are gorgeous and compliment each other nicely. You can see a look I created with Tea For Two below. e.l.f. suggests applying the matte shade on the lid and the shimmery shade in the crease. I didn’t apply the shimmery shade with a dampened brush because I wanted to go with a much softer look. I’m very happy with how it turned out.

You can find these nifty little duos on the e.l.f. Cosmetics website. There are 5 shades to choose from and they are $3.00 each.

So I haven’t posted anything from e.l.f. in like… well forever. But be prepared because I’ve actually got a bunch of e.l.f. goodies to share with you. For now let’s start with this beautiful liquid eyeshadow!

The aqua packaging is what really stood out to me. It’s so much more appealing than the usual white or black packaging. I chose the shade Rose Gold because I’m a sucker for anything rose gold. I’m not really big on liquid eyeshadow, but I thought it would be fun to experiment. And it was! I applied this directly onto my lids and blended it out with a concealer brush. I tried using my finger and ended up wiping it off and using the concealer brush instead. I find that the brush spreads the product out evenly onto your lid. Using my finger made it slide around too much and it made for an uneven look. I decided to pair this off with some of the shadows from my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette. I just thought the Rose Gold would look beautiful combined with the berry and orange shades.

It blended easily with the concealer brush and set rather quickly. It lasted throughout the day, but did crease a bit after about 4 hours. The shade is gorgeous! It’s a metallic, but I personally think it’s still very wearable. I think my lighting makes it look way more shiny than it appears in person.

Overall, I’d have to say I like it a lot. While liquid eyeshadow isn’t something I’d reach for often, I can definitely see it making an appearance for special occasions. It was also fun experimenting with something different. And it really is a beautiful shade!
