    As far as I can remember, I've always loved going to garage sales. My Mom actually initiated me and my sister and I loved finding piles of Goosebumps books when I was younger - these are lasting memories. To me, garage sale means books. I never buy makeup there, for instance, because I don't think it's that hygienic. But one day I walked by a table where there were some makeup products and I looked, as everything was very clean. I found this brand new ELF Smudge Pot there which had been never used nor even swatched ! It cost me less than €1 whereas it's €5 on the ELF website so even though the spare money won't buy me a car, I got it and if you've read the title of this post, you know I was right.

    ELF's Smudge Pots are cream eyeshadows that won't budge once they're settled on your eyes, like a Kiko's Cream Crush eyeshadow for instance. The only shade the young woman had was Brownie Points which isn't something I would have settled for at first - having brown eyes, I tend to avoid any average brown eye makeup except for a natural eyeliner look or for my crease. However, its slightly metallic finish makes my eyes brighter, I like that very much.
    The first times I swatched this just to see how it would turn out on my hand/arm first, I was impressed : one or two minutes later, it wouldn't budge. It's creamy and you can work it in layers if you want the color and metallic finish to be more intense - it dries quickly but still, you have the time to fix a flawed eyeliner stroke for instance. However, once dry, it won't budge at all. I still tried with my fingers on my swatch : if you really move your fingers accross the swatch while pressing hard, it will budge a bit but if you don't touch it, you'll be good to go for a while.

    I have never used an eyeshadow base with it and still it looked fresh after several hours - the lasting power must be much better with an eyeshadow base underneath. It is very longlasting provided you don't scrub your eyes (for instance at the end of a long day when you're exhausted) because it's going to sligtly flake away - you won't look like a nightmare but you won't look totally glam either. To take it off, I use vegetable oil which does work pretty fast and doesn't leave any stains of the product.
    This is an excellent product of 5.5 g for €5 and I can't wait to get some other shades likes Poppin, Ain't that Sweet and Cruising Chic amongst others but as my blogger friend Chloé from the blog Chloé la Petite Nymphe would say it, "I'm keeping all my money for the NYX opening in Paris La Défense" (as well as for some other things too, I have to admit almost shamelessly). This thingy is made for those of us who leave home early for a long day at work or at school and who have no time or will to touch up their makeup every hour - try this out ! Do you know Eyes Lips Face Smudge Pots ? Which shades would you recommend ?
