Eye Primer -E.L.F. -Essential Shadow Lock and Eyelid Primer

I got it in Sheer. It has a slightly whitening effect on the lids and is a little opaque. My skin tone is NC 20 (warm-neutral, fair) and it is lighter than my skin tone. On applying, it spreads easily. It doesn't feel sticky. It dries on the lids quickly (<20-30 secs) and the tackiness completely disappears.

I applied my eyeshadows directly (without a base layer) onto 1 eye and it blended well. On my other eye, I applied a base eyeshadow layer followed by my eyelid shadows. The 1st eye had eyeshadow which was brighter and not diluted in color.

I noticed within a few hours that the eye where I applied the base layer ended up smudging badly. I had a racoon eye. The other eye (where I applied directly) did a lot better but it still smudged. Now I should mention I do have somewhat oily eyelids. But I don't have this problem when I use my anti ageing Urban Decay Primer Potion - it's very tacky and my shadows stick like glue regardless of the number of layers of shadows I use.

Tldr - lasts for short durations to brighten shadows; but will have smudging/transfer of shadows for oily eyelids. Cheap primer for ppl without oily lids. Not a dupe for UDPP.

Seriously impressed. Made my glittery shadow really pop and last a very long time.

This is a great and inexpensive product. I picked it up at Walmart after reading it was a dupe for Urban Decay Primer Potion. I also tried the UDPP and loved it too.
This primer has an opaque, light nude color which can be rubbed in sheer. I found it to hold onto my pressed eyeshadow for an evening out. The sponge applicator is fine but after I apply a drop, I use my finger to finish. It’s easily removed with a wipe or cleanser. A great product for a sweet bargain.

This is great for brows! It stays all day on brows....Also good for smudgy smoky looks. It’s a kind of brown-grey. Good for everyday looks! This pencil is soft & easily smudgeable it will fade thou on the waterline. 5/5

Brows -E.L.F. -Instant Lift Brow Pencil

Honestly, this pencil beats out It Cosmetics and NYX - no question. I have it in the shade deep brown and it is the perfect cool, deep brown. The formula is more of a powder than a cream, so it goes on a bit softer and you don't have to press hard to deepen the shade. I also find this pencil is easier to blend than any other I own. Granted it's not slim, but I see absolutely no difference in application or performance. The spoolie is perfect for blending - its just the right size. I find myself reaching for this more than the other pencils I own and I have every intention of repurchasing this when the time comes.

Brows -E.L.F. -Lock On Liner and Brow Cream

This product has a learning curve. Although I purchased the Light Brown shade, it is actually more dark brown upon application. I found that dabbing a small amount on with a Q-tip and using the clean end to remove excess works best. Also, following this with some spoolie brushing helps. The product is bold and requires care not to look too artificial. The Pros: $1 and it stays on until you remove it. It works much better as a liner under the eye than it does on the brows.

This is a nice powder. It doesn't cake with multiple applications and it takes away shine well. It evens skin tone somewhat and provides light coverage.

I just saw St. Lucia shade and bought it because it was light. I am NC 30 or NC37 whenever MAC can makeup its mind and this shows on my skin. It has some shimmer which I like. It is pigmented. For $3, you cannot I expect much but this does a decent job. The funny thing is that it comes in a box but the container doesn’t open well. Go figure!

I will admit, this is a pretty good product. However, after only having bought it for a few hours. The lid to the concealer side wouldn’t open. So I tried and I tried and it ended up exploding and going all over my hands. So I had to throw it away

I have this product in both St Lucia and figi .I find the blush in St Lucia to have "glitter" not shimmer which am not a fan of but the bronza is ok I decluttered it and accidentally re purchased it in one of my elf hall.Figi is ok it's a Matt product the blush I have to build up for it to show up but all in all a useable product.

Brows -E.L.F. -Instant Lift Brow Pencil

I have this in taupe and neutral brown. Both are good color for me and sometimes I use both together. It does not make tiny hair like stokes like the NYX micro but it doesn't scratch or pull out eyebrows either. I really like this to outline the brows because it is fine enough and soft enough, but not too soft. If I want finer hairs around the beginning of the brow I use the NYX for a few little hairs there. I don't have 10-15 minutes to spend on my brows every morning and I can get a nice look with this in a few minutes. If you rub your brows it can smear a little but once it dries it stays on all day long on me. I do find if you use an oilier makeup sometimes it will tend to smear some if you rub it, but not much more than any others do. Consistency reminds me a lot of my MAC spiked. You cannot beat the price and there is a good amount of product. MAC spiked is still my all time favorite(until recently when the last couple I purchased seemed lesser quality) but this is a good substitute. Not dupe, substitute. The color selection is limited but luckily 2 of the work for me and you cannot beat the price. $2.00 and it has a decent spoolie. e.l.f. recently had a 50% off sale on almost every item on their website, so at $1.00 each I stocked up for me and for gift baskets and stocking stuffers for Christmas.

Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. -Crease Brush

I'm not sure if I received a dud of this but mine isn't tapered at the end. It's actually fanned out at the end and it looks like it missed the cutting process of shaping it into a dome. Overall it's very soft and still fits well into the crease of my eyes and blends out shadows well. I wonder if this happened to anyone else? I might have to pick another one up because the reviews are so great!

I love this brush!! I've been looking for a large blending brush for my eyeshadow and one that is nice and soft and doesn't irritate my eyes. This one works excellent! I love it and highly recommend it.

Initially I liked this brush for contouring, but I found that I just wasn't reaching for it. It's just a bit too small and isn't as soft as the other studio brushes by ELF. I think it's an okay brush for the price but I likely wouldn't purchase it again if I lost it.
