Lipstick -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Liquid Matte Lipstick

I bought Tea Rose and Blushing Nude, both of which are pinky nude colors with Tea Rose leaning more pink and Blushing Nude leaning more nude. They come in a tube with a V shaped wand applicator. There is quite a bit of product that comes on the applicator initially and I’ll have to use the tube to scrape some off before I apply it. The feel is a bit drying, but that’s to be expected with any matte lipstick. It goes on smoothly, dries quickly and doesn’t budge—at all! Incredibly long lasting and you can’t beat the cheap price!! A repurchase for sure.


Eye Primer -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Essential Eyelid Primer - Sheer

This is a great primer that works just as well as my higher end ones. I like the beige colour as it covers any redness on my lids. This dries to a nice smooth finish. My shadows apply with ease and they do not crease which is great because I have oily lids. Also they stay bright and do not fade. The price is great and I would repurchase for sure. Recommended.

Lipstick -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Studio Moisturizing Lipstick (all colors)

I have the shade Party In The Buff and it's a super gorgeous peachy nude. The color goes so well worn with any of the Too Faced Peach products. Better yet I found this at Dollar Tree for a buck. It's best applied with tapping motions rather than swiping. If you swipe it on the lips it looks too light and chalky but if you dab it till you're satisfied with the tint you can get a very pretty peach pink tone. I'd definitely repurchase this.

Liquid -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Cosmetics Beautifully Bare Foundation Serum SPF 25

I really like this foundation. About me NW20 or below, blonde hair, green eyes, very cool undertones plus I'm blotchy. I have the lightest shade fair/light and it matches my skin tone perfectly. It's a nice satin finish and is very light and comfortable to wear. It covers my redness and evens out my skintone.

This is a great no makeup, makeup base. It hasn't broke me out either. I have sensitive combo skin and this works really well. I set this with Nars setting powder and it lasts till I wash it off. It doesn't oxidize either. I wish you'd get a touch more for the $$ but otherwise it's excellent. Recommended.

Okay so as a makeup addict I try everything. This is up there with my benefit eyebrow kits. Creamy, long lasting, great colours. Only thing is you need to use your own angel brush to apply for that price who cares. Run out and buy it. What a steal!!!!! I am over the moon.

Lips -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Aqua Beauty Radiant Gel Lip Stain

EDIT: update—this has numbed my lips, dental anaesthetic-style. Creepy and uncomfortable, to say the least. What’s in this stuff, anyhow? I’m going to have to bin this, I’m afraid.

Original review:
I love a good lip stain. I pine for the days of Laura Mercier's Crimson pot stain as well as the Vincent Longo stains which are now only available online (if at all). I saw e.l.f'.'s offering while running an errand in a big box store and, having remembered a write-up I'd read, jumped on it and got the Rouge one. Well, this serves its purpose as something nice for those no-makeup/minimum makeup, lounging about/running about/sportsing days. It's definitely on the low-colour payoff side, so two coats are necessary. This does have a nasty, bitter chemical taste, but most stains (including the famed K-beauty stains) do. I top mine with a fruity balm or a minty gloss and I'm fine. At $4, you can't really go wrong.

Treatments (Face) -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Beauty Shield Vitamin C Pollution Prevention Serum

on 9/21/2018 11:56:00 PM

ELF Cosmetics has overall been a pretty impressive budget brand that makes several products which I would consider either very similar or a dupe for much higher end brands. Some E.L.F. products are great and some are just so-so. The new E.L.F. COSMETICS Beauty Shield Vitamin C Pollution Prevention Serum is overall a decent vitamin c serum. What I dislike about it is the fragrance, however, it does dissipate by the first hour of wear. The other thing that I was nervous about was the use of so many ingredients that can potentially cause acne, I didn't have any issues in my two months using this but I have read reviews from others who have had breakouts attributed to this product. If you have no issues with fragrance, have dry or dehydrated skin, and are not prone to breakouts this is a good and affordable vitamin c serum to try. My video review can be seen here:

This is a steal! $2 at Target. I also use Anastasia and IT cosmetics brow power. This has good color and is very smooth/creamy making it easy to apply. The color I used is taupe. Not waterproof, but good for everyday.

I've used both the taupe and the brown. They both work on me as neither of them has red or orange undertones. Easy to apply, long lasting and cheap! I like this way better than many of the more expensive products I've tried. Cruelty free, too!

Misc Beauty Tools -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Studio Makeup Mist & Set Spray

on 9/21/2018 11:46:00 AM

I like this but I don’t love it. Its not horrible. Hasn’t caused a breakout and most definitely makes my fave less powdery. Spray too much and you’ll look dry. The scent isn’t actually as big a deal as others are saying, but maybe I just don’t actually drown in it lol

The spray mechanism has gotten better. It’s a staple in my cars makeup bag. I keep the bare minimum in my car for juuuust in case.

I don’t notice longevity but I do notice that I’m less greasy looking by the end of the work day compared to when I have no setting spray at all

I didn't notice it doing anything except giving me cystic pimples. I don't remember last time I got a huge painful pimple, using this spray I've got two.
It didn't help my blush or highlighter to stay any longer. I think it's a nice product to set powder foundation and stop it from looking powdery but that's all.

I'm on my third or fourth tube of Touch of Blush! If they discontinue this, I don't know what I'll do! The finish is natural, the packaging is pretty sturdy, and the formula is so smooth and creamy. Also, for what it's worth, I found that KVD's Studded Kiss lipstick in Lolita pulled very similarly to this on my light olive/yellow toned skin.

Toners -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Hydrating Water Essence

Very nice hydrating essence. You get a nice amount of product for the price. Packaging is nice, nothing fancy. This is essence is fairly basic. It hydrates and slightly plumps my skin nothing more. But for the price, I'm satisfied with it.

Pros:
Nice consistency
Hydrating
Slightly plumping
Price
Doesn't leave skin sticky/tacky
Preps skin for other products
Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin

Cons:
Basic formula
No benefits other than moisture/hydration

I'll continue to purchase this. It's not my favorite but it's good. It's nice to use and affordable.

I have REALLY sensitive and dry skin so I've got to be really careful with products I buy. Unlike makeup, where I know the best brands and products, I'm quite new to the skincare 'trend'. I'm always drawn to products that make my face more moisturised, and dewy though, so I was really pleased to find this at my local Tk Maxx for a really cheap price!

It's not a miracle worker, and that's reflective of the price. I wouldn't recommend using it on its own but it's great alongside other products. I use it after I cleanse (Milk charcoal cleanser and a cleansing brush with cold water!). A little goes a long way, which I love, and it leaves my face feeling really soft. I follow it up with my favourite Smashbox oil primer.

I have really really sensitive skin, and this doesn't flare me up at all. A great product to add to your skincare routine!

Tinted Moisturizer -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

Another product that doesn’t work well for people with oily skin. In reality, not many work for me and this is not an exception. So what do we do? The answer is not a primer because it would be oxymoron to wear a primer and then a moisturizer. If you are trying to keep your skin maintained using a moisturizer, you are blocking it by using a primer first. So the solution is powder. I prefer mineral powder. The combination works very well and makes my skin look flawless. The reason I gave a high rating to this product is because for $3.50, you are getting a quality product. So it doesn’t work by itself but it does team play with a powder and keep the skin in a great condition.
