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. 

Products:
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?

xoxo,
