This Drugstore Beauty Collab Is Your Budget’s Dream Come True
Beauty products, we love you, but damn, our bank account doesn’t exactly feel the same way. Every time we duck into Sephora for a quick restock we somehow end up with at least $50 worth of new merch and a hand covered in everything from concealer to lipstick (AKA Sephora hand). If you’re a beauty junkie on a budget, E.L.F Cosmetics has a new collection you should check out ASAP.
The super cheap (but surprisingly reliable) makeup brand has teamed up with beauty vloggers to create three essential beauty products for — you guessed it — your eyes, lips and face (that’s what E.L.F stands for, FYI). SF-based vlogger Weylie created a cheek palette. Jackie Aina created an eye shadow compact and beauty duo Tracy and Stefanie of Eleventh Hour Gorgeous created the perfect day-to-night lipstick.

Swatches of the #elfXjackieaina JGlow palette! Launches on elfcosmetics.com on Tuesday July 12th 🙌🏾 Why I chose ELF: affordable, accessible and innovative. Contrary to what a lot of people believe this is not the first time I've been offered to partner with a brand. But I'm a perfectionist and it had to be done right 😭 I chose this because I knew it was a brand so many of you already like and are able to get no matter where you are! I chose these colors because when I buy a new palette these are usually the colors I gravitate toward first!! An everyday mauve for the crease. A taupe shimmer on the lid for a subtle everyday wearable look. I HAD to have a dark burgundy for the crease that was like non negotiable!! To add depth to the eyes! Then the pop of teal to break up the neutrals of the palette. And of course a GOLD for the inner corner of the eyes which also makes a gorgeous cheekbone highlighter. I'm excited that I can FINALLY share this special palette with you all and this is only the beginning of more amazing things I hope to create for all of you! Hope you all are just as excited as I am! ❤️🙌🏾💋 UPDATE: I've just been notified they'd like to space out the collabs a bit more so the palette will NOT be launching on the 12th 😭 please sign up on the elf website to be notified when it will be live. I'm SO SORRY for the inconvenience babes.

These three buys aren’t just a little cheaper than what you’d find at Sephora, they’re basically dirt cheap. The eye and face palette are both priced at $6 each and the lipstick is one dollar cheaper at $5. We’re sure you’re all capable of basic math, but just to add this up for you, you could score this entire collection for less than $20.
