Mascara -e.l.f. -Studio 3-in-1 Mascara (Lengthen, Define & Volumize)

This mascara didn't work for me. One pro is the price ($3 USD!), which made me feel less guilty about tossing it.

- It went on unevenly and clumpy unless I put it on very slowly and with a very light touch
- It stuck entire sections of lashes together
- It was very hard to get off - I lost some lashes in the process
- The shape of the brush was problematic - like another reviewer, I kept using the ball on the end to reach smaller lashes on the edge, but ended up getting mascara everywhere else (lids, eye) too

Contour -e.l.f. -Contour Palette

This is my go-to pallete. I use it for my face and eyes. The colors always look natural no matter what I want to add to it and it's very versatile. When it comes to my basic, daily makeup, I just put on my bb cream, put this on over it and I'm ready to go. I even use the dark brown for my eye brows.


Loose Powders -e.l.f. -Studio High Definition Powder

The packaging with its small holes makes a huge mess. I do like the softness of the powder but do find it leaves a white cast on my skin. Decent oil control.

Lipstick -e.l.f. -Velvet matte lipstick

on 3/20/2018 10:02:00 AM

I bought this in 'Ruby Red', which looks like a slightly dark true red in the tube. I was a bit shocked to apply it, as it went on like a cherry red (almost a deep hot pink). It's what I wanted Wet n Wild's 'Smokin' Hot Pink' to look like.

Given this is supposed to be a matte, I was surprised at how easily it glided on, although I had a bit of lip balm left over from the night. I'll have to come back when I've tried it on totally bare lips.

I actually like the packaging of this! It's sleek and inconspicuous, unlike the horrid shiny white plastic of some other e.l.f. offerings.

I'm disappointed by the color, but will hold on to this a bit to see if I can make it work.

This is a dupe for Peter Thomas Roth's Peel Gel. I swear but you get almost twice the amount for 1/5 the price, because that Peter Thomas Roth's Peel Gel costs $50!!!! Amazing!!! And this stuff does just as an amazing job!!!! And I would go CRAZY if I EVER ran out if it!!! So asap I'm going to stock up on this stuff so I have a stash of it!!! This, and oh Diptique's candles!!! You can't go wrong there either!!!

Eye Makeup Remover -e.l.f. -Makeup Remover Pen

This is a pretty convenient product, and it lasts quite long. Make sure you wipe the tip a bit before using each time, because it always has some residue from the makeup you previously cleaned off.

Contour -e.l.f. -Contour Palette

The contour shade is quite dark for fair skin. It can work decently if applied with a light hand, but it's far from ideal.
The highlighter is powdery and chalky.
The setting powder is, again, too dark for fair skin. Can work for setting concealer on eyelids, but make sure you apply it with a light hand or it will cake up.
The bronzer shade has a red undertone. This is the only shade that is completely unusable on fair skin, so I use it as eyeshadow.
All of the powders blend quite well.
I'm a fan of the packaging, it's sturdy and has a huge mirror. Very affordable product.

I love this so much!!! Picked it up wondering what it would do, and I wasn't let down! I like how there's two ends to the product. The brushes are perfect and they spread the product really evenly. As it's clear, it works with all colors of lashes. It lasts the day and leaves your lashes with a lovely curl too. Love it!

Wasn’t too hard to apply and didn’t smudge but not long after it began to crack and come off.


Eyes -e.l.f. -Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder

This powder is THE BOMB!!!
It’s silky to the touch, finally Milled,
The light-diffusing property give a GORGEOUS BRIGHT EYE LOOK.
Set concealer beautifully, doesn’t crease, look cakey or feels drying like others translucent powder I’ve tried.✨
It have a soft pinkie hue, but it doesn’t alter the color of the concealer what so ever.
One lippie off - because the jar is teeny tiny & can be quite messy.
I wise elf would come out with full size jar because the quality is like high-end powder nonetheless.

Liquid -e.l.f. -Flawless Finish Foundation

on 3/9/2018 8:34:00 PM

I’m happy to report that I love this foundation. I wanted to try it several times before reviewing, so I used this then tried a couple of my other faves just to be sure. This provides great coverage (I apply a second coat on my nose which tends to be red unfortunately), makes my skin feel silky and does a decent job keeping oil at bay (I use NYX pore filler as a primer and set it with e.l.f. Soft Luminance loose powder). I apply with e.l.f. small stipple brush or FLOWER beauty’s beauty blender. Couldn’t be more pleased with the results!

Eyeliner -e.l.f. -Studio Precision Liquid Eyeliner

I was looking for a fine tip liner. This is not fine tip.
It's very runny. Takes about 7 minutes to dry. That's a long time when you are in a hurry. Once dry, it looks cracked and flaky.
When its wet you can try to smudge it, but it just went everywhere. This one is going to end up in my "halloween" box. It will be great for drawing cat whiskers on my cheeks.

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

foto

I like E.L.F products. They are a great drugstore brand with a high end feel to them. This serum foundation gives you a sheer, buildable coverage that does not feel heavy on your skin. When I want to wear a liquid foundation and not have the full coverage look, this is my go to foundation.

It's thin and runny so I have to put it on my beauty blender and then apply it to my face but it blends out very easily and nicely. I like a dewy look so I don't set it with a lot of powder, just setting spray.

Bronzers -e.l.f. -Bronzer Palette

on 3/8/2018 1:54:00 AM

I have found my holy grail bronzer!

For my fair skin this quad is a true gem (surprising since the contour quad paled in comparison and was rather chalky) The colours blend seamlessly, and are mostly matte (except for the one shade with VERY subtle Shimmer) I love applying to lightest matte shade all over for warmth, the second darkest for a SUBTLE contour around my temples, cheekbones, and jaw, and the darkest contour concentrated down the sides of the nose, and in the hollows of the cheeks. I then use the golden shade with a little shimmer almost as a "Blush" to give me a gorgeous, sun-kissed glow.

Many bronzers appear too orange, too muddy, and are patchy, or hard to blend. This quad requires very little effort to achieve a flawless finish that looks very natural.

That being said I have fair skin so I think any negative reviews would be based on the fact that this might not show up on deeper skin tones...in which case the blush/bronzer duo (with a darker bronzer) Might be a more suitable option.

Treatments (Eye) -e.l.f. -e.l.f. Illuminating Eye Cream

on 3/5/2018 1:18:00 PM

Oh e.l.f. You try to get into the higher end stuff...

I bought this with a big e.l.f. haul and hoped it would be nice. I did finish it up and it didn't cause any reaction on my skin which is pretty decent enough but it was just ok. I certainly wouldn't get it again at that price tag, and prefer L'oreal eye creams in the same range. I hardly notice anything from eye creams to be totally honest, but this really was just...moisturizer. Nothing special. I didn't have stinging but I also didn't notice less darkness or illumination. E.l.f. has some ok products but overall I find them meh. They're trying to get more into these niches with this line and the sport line but overall I just stick to them for brushes and the under eye primer.
