Misc Beauty Tools -e.l.f. - Pore Refining Brush Mask Tool

I completely disagree with the other review. Unless you’re willy nilly flicking it around the product isn’t going to go anywhere except where you’re putting it. I found the “floppiness” of the silicone side to be a benefit when spreading product as you’re better able to reach all of the books of your face, and the dense brush on the end is for really getting into your pores and cleaning ever bit out. I use this every time I do any type of mask, and I frequently use the brush end to make sure I get every bit of makeup off, and my pores look so much smaller! This is the best $5 makeup item I’ve ever purchased!

It smells like chemicals and it feels greasy as you apply it but it looks and performs like a much much more expensive primer! Lives up to all it's claims...cheap...widely available and didn't cause me to breakout.

Loving this! Makes my lips feel so soft after! Have been using it a few times a week this winter to help dry chapped lips. Will definitely re-purchase!

I LOVE all the studio brushes! They are so soft and good quality. This one is great and can be multi-purpose. And the price!! You cannot beat it!

Primer/ Corrector -e.l.f. -Hydrating Face Primer

This is a pretty good primer for the price! Definitely good for dry skin as it can feel a little greasy/silicone-y. But goes on smooth and helps with fine lines. I am prone to break outs and this does not break me out. It can make my foundation slip around when applying though (because of the greasy-ness of it) so I have to use more product if I want fuller coverage.


Primer/ Corrector -e.l.f. -Beauty Shield SPF 50 Skin Shielding Primer

I like this product and will probably repurchase when I run out, but there are a few issues that keep me from giving it a better review. First, the good parts -- I like that this product provides SPF 50 physical sunscreen. The tint is a good color for me -- I'm a light-medium neutral skin tone and it blends right into my skin tone. It provides a nice look on its own, and a surprising amount of coverage. Pretty matte at first, and creates a nice, smooth surface. The negatives: I wish this didn't have fragrance!!!! Please, ELF, no one needs fragrance in their primer or sunscreen. I have truly sensitive skin that reacts to so many things, so it makes me nervous and it's so unnecessary in a skincare product. Women are becoming savvier about this issue, too (fragrance causing allergic reactions, etc.) so they would be well served to just leave it out. Also, it became very shiny and sticky feeling over the course of the day. Granted, I put on a heavy layer since it was my first time wearing it and I pumped too much out. But wow, it felt like I had paste on my face by the end of the day, and looked really shiny. So the matte finish didn't hold up. Next time I will use half as much product and hope that helps a bit with the feeling and shine issues. Finally, and importantly, this product is NOT labeled as "Broad Spectrum" -- it uses nano zinc, which provides good UVB coverage but not good UVA coverage, even though it is zinc based! It is NOT a mistake that it's labeled SPF 50 but does NOT say Broad Spectrum -- that's because it's NOT. I layered it over a broad spectrum moisturizer, so that's okay as a workaround, but it can't really do the job I'd like it to do on its own. I wish they had opted for non-nano zinc for this reason (non-nano would cover UVA). I'll use it for coverage and some extra SPF, but not without a broad spectrum moisturizer. It's worth the money, I guess, but it would be soooo much better with Broad Spectrum coverage and no fragrance.

I bought this after Livloveshermakeup listed this as a favorite.
Since moving to the desert, my skin changed considerably.
This suits my dehydration but I would not be able to use this when I had normal to combo.
I apply with my hands like a lotion or serum.

Powder -e.l.f. -High Definition Studio Powder-Translucent

I needed a good translucent setting powder and picked this up at the drugstore one day, thinking it would tide me over until I had time and money to spend at Sephora. Well, that trip won’t be happening, because I was BLOWN AWAY by how amazing this powder is.

It glides over the skin seamlessly, setting, smoothing, and perfecting everything in its wake. Definitely HD, it gives my complexion that coveted photoshopped look. Now, it doesn’t completely eradicate oil from my skin, but with my complexion, I believe this is a true impossibility.

As was mentioned in another review, it has the power to lighten and brighten, so if you have foundation that oxidizes, this will help with that!

Unlike most loose powders, it dispenses just the right amount. It dispenses through holes in a plastic covering, so there’s a lot less mess, but the holes aren’t so small that you’re slamming the packaging against your palm trying to get the stuff out (I’ve clearly dealt with both of these qualms). I only wish it was easier to find and that it came in a bigger size, but the price point is excellent, so i’ll be stocking up the next time I see it.

I’ll finish by saying that I have acne-prone skin, but have not experienced the pore-clogging problems others seem to have had. Therefore, if you battle breakouts, I’d still at least give this a try. You may find it was definitely worth it.

Should have kept my receipt. What a waste. These are SO powdery. Not smooth.

I tried numerous times before realizing it's junk. They are four oddly colored bad powders.


Lip Treatments -e.l.f. -Lip Kiss Balm - Bare Kiss

This is one of my favorite lip glosses. The color is absolutely perfect for my lips and it goes with almost any eyeshadow or eyeliner. It's very natural looking. There is a minty sensation when you apply it and it tastes sweet if you lick your lips. It also does a good job at moisturizing/conditioning your lips. I don't know what's up with the other review of this, but I have not seen any "white" coloring in this lip gloss. It's also not dry at all.


Mascara -e.l.f. -Beautifully Bare lash tint mascara

I've been using this mascara for about 6 months, and so far it is one of my favorites. The skinny brush is great for getting small lashes and expertly applying the mascara from root to tip. It does a wonderful job on lengthening as well as thickening lashes. The formula stays wet for a little while, but once it dries it does not flake or smudge at all. The formula is also very gentle, so it doesn't cause any lashes to break or pull off when washing it off.

This foundation is great for preventing makeup related breakouts. It gives good matte coverage, as well. Just make sure you moisturize/use a primer though, because this foundation is very drying.
