Cheap Thrills

Ok, so this post I've had for a long time coming, but anyways...
A few weeks ago, I found myself with a mix bag of cheap makeup thrills.

I can give thanks to The Bargain Blonde for my new addiction of e.l.f. products.
Oh, and the best part? They are ubber cheap. AND they are really good quality. 

Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths - $3 
(Not a complete dupe of my favorite Neutrogena face wipes, but they worked well enough...I just would have added a little bit more moisture to them.)
Natural Lash Kit - $1 
(Because who doesn't love a fresh set of falsies?)
Cream Eyeliner in Midnight - $3 
(Oh my word, I may have found a replacement for my MAC Fluidline...I'm going back to buy every color)
Brush Shampoo - $3 
(I wasn't all too impressed with this. I'll still stick with my MAC brush cleaner, but regardless, everyone make sure y'all are washing your brushes! It'll make them last a whole lot longer.)
Nail Polish Remover Pads - $1 
(My number one favorite product of the bunch! I really like the fact that they work and they don't smell like acetone - instead they smell like citrus.)
Eye Makeup Remover Pas - $1 
(I wish they were a little bigger, but other than that they work great.)
Mineral Infused Mascara - $3 
(worked really well at separating my lashes and making them appear natural)

I also purchased a $3 powder brush to put my Bare Minerals on, and woah, is it just like the B.M. kabuki brush (just $17 cheaper!).
The only thing I could think of that was a disappointment had to pertain to the fact that my Target didn't carry the whole selection of their products. After reading The Bargain Blonde's blog, I really had a few more products in mind that I wanted to try. I just wasn't in the need of foundation or eye shadows or pencil liners.

Have y'all used e.l.f. before? What are your favorites? Did I miss any other cheap thrills?

e.l.f. is great! I love the booklets they have..I use the face one with the bronzer, blush, 4 highlighters, and 4 concealers. I also love the mineral infused mascara!
