ELF Smudge Pot Review
Target has been clearing their shelves to make room for new products, these Smudge Pots being one of them. I picked up the only two available: Brownie Points and Ain't That Sweet. Brownie Points is a very warm, dark brown with some copper. It's really beautiful. Ain't That Sweet is a light baby pink.
Brownie Points is so pigmented and strong. When I first used it, I applied a tiny amount, but it still ended up being too much. Luckily, it is very blendable too. All I did was take a clean blending brush, blended it out a bit, and then blended in a matte flesh tone shade to tone it down. This would be an incredible base for a brown smokey eye or look great smudged out on the upper or lower lash line.
Ain't That Sweet was not as pretty as it looked in the jar. It came out a bit blotchy, looking kind of like chunky strawberry milk, and when I went to blend it to even it out, the color would basically just disappear. It is a very light shade to begin with, but blending it too much will definitely make it almost transparent. This is unfortunate because the color in pot is so pretty. But, I have no doubt that you can use this as a sticky base, if you already own the product. If you don't, do not bother picking it up.
For $2, Brownie Points is incredible. It is such a rich color that could easily be a dupe for some of the more higher end brands. Aint That Sweet is not even worth the $2, but don't have that stir you away from trying any of the other shades. I do want to try Gotta Glow. I am a sucker for anything gold :)
