Smash & Grab Make-up Deal!

Leave a comment

Noah and I went to Target so he could buy a new pair of short. He didn’t need me to hover over him so I wandered to the make-up section. I need some new mascara but I found was even BETTER! Looking for some inexpensive make-up options led me to e.l.f. (eyes, lips, face).

Mascara for $3? It must be crap. I looked at the packaging and found that it was cruelty-free and that some proceeds go to charity! I would have to go home and really investigate which charities they give to, but right then and there, it seemed intriguing. Normally, companies that boast of cruelty free practices, sell really expensive products.

Noah found his shorts, I’m sure they’ll look cute. I, on the other hand, made out like a bandit! All e.l.f products at Target cost: $1, $3, or $6! So I grabbed these items, some I needed, some I didn’t:

  • Face Primer, $6
  • Eye Shadow, $1
  • Make-up Mist & Set, $3
  • Eyeliner Pen, $1
  • Mascara, $3
  • Tinted Moisturizer, $3

As far is those charities go, I found that they’ve given to breast cancer treatment for women in inner-city hospitals of LA. There was a relief fund for the 2011 Japan Earthquake/Tsunami disaster. And right now, they are giving money to this place:

The Beauty Bus Foundation is out of Los Angeles. They supply at-home beauty treatments (hair, makeup, mani’s and pedi’s) to terminally ill patients and their caregivers. It sounds like a small but important gesture to make people feel good about themselves, get pampered, and take their minds off their conditions.
