Eye Makeup Remover -E.L.F. -Makeup Remover Pen

A genius product in theory. For years I've been dipping q-tips in eye makeup remover to fix mascara transfer on a daily basis...DAILY! I can NEVER manage to not get at least one speck of mascara on my eyelid. A pen makes removing mistakes quicker and more convenient. Saw this for about $3 and thought I had scored. However. I bought this product twice this year.. the first time it was completely dried out from the moment I pulled it out of the package. Useless. Thinking it was a fluke and I got a dud I bought it again. ALMOST completely dried out. I still tried to use it but most days I just reach for my trusty q-tips. I was inspired to write this review because today I bought a similar product from Hard Candy called Oopsy-Proof Makeup Eraser which I'm hoping will be a lot better and NOT already dried out. Plus the HC one appears to have a much finer tip which is nice. One of the things I hate about using q-tips on the lid to fix mascara is that sometimes it removes my eyeshadow as well. The ELF eraser pen has a thicker marker style tip which could apply too much remover to the lid and you may have to redo your shadow (if yours is not already dried out like mine!). So...yeah...looking forward to trying out the HC version even though it cost a few dollars more...



Lipstick -E.L.F. -Moisturizing Lipstick - Ravishing Rose

i gave this 4 stars for pricing because even at $3, this was overpriced junk. e.l.f. proves that you get what you pay for! shoddy application, sweet smell and taste (ugh!), flat one-dimensional colors. nobody over 18 should waste their money on these lipsticks. spend a little more and get gabriel/zuzu -- those are worth it! i bought these in ravishing rose and wine tour. the rose was like a tacky coral and the wine was just basic kool aid purple. never again.


Moisturizers -E.L.F. -Daily Hydration Moisturizer

This moisturizer isn't bad, it just doesn't suit my needs. I have normal-dry skin and I would like more moisture. If I wasn't using this with the Elf hydrating essence, I don't think it would give me enough hydration. I find this similar to neutrogena's water boost moisturizer. Both have a gel-cream texture. Elf has a slight scent. I can't place what it smells like, but it is not irritating or offensive. It pumps out a small amount of product. I use half a pump around my eyes and 3 pumps to cover my face and neck. You do get a lot of product, so i think this could last me 2 1/2 to 3 months. I think combo-oily skin would like it best. It plumps skin and adds hydration without being too nourishing. Overall, a good product, but not for me. I will finish the bottle and not repurchase. I prefer my Yes To Cucumbers moisturizer.

Contour -E.L.F. -Cream Contour Palette

First of all, the texture of the formula isn't very nice. It's quite greasy, but it does blend okay. It has a tendency to almost blend away, but I guess I prefer that to not being able to blend it out at all. This palette really needs to be available in different shades, though. I'm fair with cool undertones, and out of four shades, I can only get away with using one. The highlighter looks crazy yellow on me, and it doesn't look very nice on top of foundation, either, due to the greasiness I mentioned before. The top right one is slightly warm to contour with, but it works in a pinch. Bottom left one is far too orange even to bronze with, and bottom right one is several shades too dark. I don't know if they maybe thought they'd cover three different skin tones in the same palette, or if they think the same person will get use out of all three? It's just a mess. It would make so much more sense as a duo with one highlight and one bronzer shade, and have it available in three or four different shades! Kind of like their blush and bronzer duo.

Nowadays when I want to do cream contour I use Jordana's Sculpt n Go Contour stick in Light instead. A much better formula and with three different shades to choose from, out of which light suits my skin perfectly. You might only get one shade as opposed to a palette, but considering I could only use one shade out of four here there's no real difference. That one is $4.99, and this palette is $6.

+ Cruelty free
+ Vegan
+ The one contour shade I've used blends easily
+ Packaging is quite sturdy

- Greasy
- The highlight is more waxy and lays really funnily on top of foundation
- Highlight is far too yellow for my skin (but may suit people with warm undertones) and would probably only work for relatively light skin tones
- No contour shade really suit people with fair skin and cool undertones
- Who will be able to use all three contour shades on themselves!? It's just a waste and should have been made into a duo instead
