#TheDivaPlanLoves Budget Friendly Flawless Foundation

The e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation has a front row seat on my makeup vanity.
If you love makeup, then certainly you can understand why I can't go into a drugstore without perusing the makeup aisle.  Since I can't afford to have a complete collection of luxury brand makeup, I'm always interested in finding the best for less.  I'll admit that I've spent upwards of $50 on foundation because it's the most important part of a makeup routine.  Well about a week ago, I was taking my normal voyage through the health and beauty department of my local drug store and I was specifically looking at foundation brands I'd seen reviewed on YouTube.  I was also interested in a much higher priced luxury brand, but I figured I'd check out the drugstore brands before I made that investment.

Nothing seemed to excite me until I got to the end of the aisle where e.l.f. Cosmetics was located. Their Flawless Finish Foundation in Coco caught my eye because it appeared to have enough red in it to fit my skin tone and it was oil free and had a SPF of 15 so I went for it.  

I used the Flawless Finish Foundation for the first time on a night out with my girlfriends.
Where foundations are concerned, this is the best purchase I've made in a long time.  The e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation goes on smooth and provides excellent coverage in one swipe.  It blends out nicely and left my face with a smooth, semi-matte finish.  Compared to higher priced brands I've purchased in the past, I'd say the performance of the e.l.f. brand is equal to or better than those.  The packaging is high end and this foundation comes in a glass bottle with a pump and...I paid $6 for it!   The only other thing I can tell you is that you should head on over to the e.l.f. Cosmetics site and get yours today!  Better yet, use the link below for a special deal from e.l.f. Cosmetics!

Ready, Set, Go! Lilly Pulitzer Collection @Target April 19th!

Satin Kimono $34
With Target, it's never a matter of if, but when the next designer collaboration will launch.  Well when is upon us and the wait will soon be over! On April 19th, Target will launch a collaboration with designer Lilly Pulitzer to bring us affordable, colorful resort wear for kids and women.  The collection will also include accessories, home and beauty items.  The lovely thing about this collection is that it will also come in plus sizes and the featured items and prints are available in all sizes, including girls!

Lilly Pulitzer is most well known for her heavy use of bright, colorful fabrics with elaborate prints. This launch is timed perfectly, as the beginning of vacation season begins for most Americans in the spring.  This will be my first time getting in line at Target for one of these events so I'll definitely be psyched and eager to get in the door and find my choice items from the collection.  Take a look at the pics in this post and let me know if you feel inspired to pick up a piece or two!
