Replenish your makeup stash with my favorite elf Cosmetics – all available on Walmart.com!

I love budget-friendly e.l.f. Cosmetics – they are always in my makeup bag. I also love that I can snag them on Walmart.com, too – it makes discovering new additions to the lineup super convenient, and prices start at just $3! 😍

From powerful primers to precise eyebrow pencils, e.l.f. is one drug store brand that holds its own against high-end makeup. And you know when a product goes viral on social or becomes a cult favorite, that e.l.f. will soon have a version!

While I have a lot of pricier brands, a majority of my makeup routine uses e.l.f. products, not only because they’re so affordable, but they just work SO well.

I’ve been an e.l.f. stan for years and will continue to be one. In most cases, they’re just as good as, if not better than, other options, so it’s a no-brainer choice.

From the Power Grip Primer (which is just as strong as it sounds) to their SPF Setting Spray (seriously, everyone needs this in their purse all summer long), everything your cosmetics bag needs can be found in the e.l.f. lineup. Here are my seven must-buys that I think you’ll love!

1. Make your foundation last all day with the Power Grip Primer.

This powerful primer doesn’t just smooth your complexion. It actually “grips” your makeup so you stay looking your best all day long! 🙌 It’s a staple in my makeup bag!

I recommend getting your hands a little wet before applying this one to help with the ease of application. Don’t skip this one, friends!


2. Treat your skin to the many benefits of e.l.f. Camo CC Cream.

e.l.f.’s Camo CC Cream is a true powerhouse. In addition to acting as a foundation, it’s infused with collagen, peptides, and niacinamide to help you plump, hydrate, and improve your skin. It even has SPF 30 for some protection from the sun.


3. Hide dark circles with e.l.f. Hydrating Camo Concealer.

When it comes to concealer, this creamy, full coverage, and lightweight concealer is just the ticket! It hides under eye circles so well! I pair it with the Halo Glow Setting Powder to get that creaseless finish I’m looking for.


4. Get your glow on with the Halo Glow Setting Powder.

Looking for an airbrushed face? As I mentioned above, I love using the e.l.f. Halo Glow Setting Powder to get that creaseless, “soft focus” look. Not only does it smooth fine lines and blur imperfections, but it’s made with synthetic sapphire particles to help you look like you glow from the inside out. ✨


5. Put your best brows forward with e.l.f. Precise Brow Pencil.

No beauty look is complete without perfect brows. Fill yours in using the dual-ended e.l.f. Cosmetics Ultra Precise Brow Pencil from Walmart. I love the super-precise liner tip on one end and the little spoolie brush on the other. The result is fuller, natural looking brows!


6. Maximize your lashes with the Big Mood Mega Volume & Lifting Mascara. It’s only $8!

Get full lashes at a fabulous price! This dramatic mascara by e.l.f. plumps and lifts your lashes while the hourglass-shaped brush separates and defines them. Plus, the formula is smudge and flake-resistant so you can kiss those raccoon eyes goodbye! 💋


7. Protect yourself from skin damage with e.l.f. SKIN Suntouchable All Set for Sun SPF 45.

I love this affordable sunscreen option. At under $15, e.l.f. offers an affordable solution that also doubles as a makeup setting spray. It’s a quick-dry, weightless, broad-spectrum formula that leaves ZERO white cast. Plus, it’s infused with antioxidant-rich watermelon fruit extract and prickly pair seed oil to nourish, calm, and soften your skin.

And, it doesn’t have to go under my makeup and I can reapply as needed!

Have a little more space in your makeup bag? I also love these extras…

Grab e.l.f.’s Pro Eyelash Curler to get a curl that lasts.

Get a long lasting curl with e.l.f.’s Pro Eyelash Curler. It’s ergonomic so you can stay comfortable as you give your lashes an eye-opening lift.


No Budge Retractable Eyeliner will make your eyes really pop!

There’s nothing worse than eyeliner that smudges and fails to stay. Get the staying power you need with e.l.f.’s No Budge Retractable Eyeliner. It’s ultra-pigmented, super creamy, and also waterproof for all your beach days.


This e.l.f. Cosmetics eyeshadow palette is small enough to take on-the-go.

Yes, you read that price correctly! Each bite-sized eyeshadow palette includes four carefully curated shades that are all you need to complete a cohesive eyeshadow look. They are just the right size to throw into your purse or travel case, too!

Give your lips a hint of color with e.l.f. Hydrating Core Lip Shine.

  3. Cheri

    I worked at one major beauty store for 2 years and I liked to stay up on “dupes” and the camo concealer is just like the tarte shape tape which is probably one of the best sellers!
