ELF Beauty Book review

So I took the Praxis 1 reading test this morning, and I feel like I bombed it :( So what better way to make myself feel better than to buy makeup? :D

My Target just got some ELF stuff in. Let's just say I went a bit crazy, and I'm going back this afternoon to go MORE crazy haha.

I picked up two beauty books, Neutral Eye Edition and Eye Brights Edition. I also picked up three brushes: blush brush (amazing), defining crease (also amazing), and a smudge brush.

Here are my thoughts (and photos) on the beauty books:
Eye Brights

These eyeshadows are SO pigmented. And for five dollars, this book is SO worth it.

Neutral Eye

So my camera kind of sucks and doesn't pick up on the intensity of the colors. Like in the Eye Brights, that purple is absolutely AMAZING. And in the Neutral, the fourth brown in has an amber colored tint to it.

All in all, I'd definitely purchase these again. They're so pigmented and blendable.
