Primer/ Corrector -e.l.f. -Mineral Infused Face Primer

on 1/28/2018 3:16:00 PM

Goes on super smooth, fills in my pores and holds back the oil tide on my face quite well.
Strange thing to note, the first part of the first pump of the day tends to go weird and pill on my face, so I squirt that teeny little first bit down the drain, and then it's perfect. It's a bit wasteful, but it's so cheap and lasts for quite awhile.

Lip Treatments -e.l.f. -Studio Lip Exfoliator

I am super impressed with this product! I have Mint Maniac and I use it religiously. I have super dry lips and they are always peeling. This has helped me moved past the embarrassment of chunky lip bits in my lipstick when i wear it. Oh and I recently found out the bottom is a chapstick!!!!! I use a little lip brush to apply after I use the exfoliating part. I will be buying more and recommending to all my friends.

Lipstick -e.l.f. -Beautifully Bare Satin Lipstick

Ooo this is nice. I love the feel of this, it's very moisturizing. I bought the Blush shade and the color is amazing. It's a warm blush shade that goes well with my light skin and red hair. Too bad it was on clearance, I hope they're not discontinuing the Beautifully Bare line.
Note: I discovered I'm allergic to this formula sadly. Same thing happens with MAC lipstick.

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Concealer Brush

I don't really use this brush for concealer but I find it very useful overall. It makes a good lip brush (almost identical to OCC's lip brush), eyeliner brush and I've even used it to apply glitter. It's a great little brush and I have several.

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Foundation brush

Definitely would not use this for foundation but it's good for applying cream product (such as a MAC Paint pot) etc... Also could use it for concealer or a face mask. Can't beat the price.


Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Highlighter brush

This makes a great highlighter brush or blush brush, depending on how much product you want/etc. Personally, I do prefer the Real Techniques setting brush for highlighter because it doesn't pick up a huge amount of product. This brush can definitely pick up too much product fairly easily. So I would only use this if you either want to be highlighted to the heavens OR you're using a muted highlighter that needs a lot of product.

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Studio (flat) Contouring Brush

on 1/25/2018 6:50:00 PM

The quality of this brush is excellent. However, it's not for me. It's a bit too wide IMO... and I don't have a small face. Sure you can use the edge of the brush but I feel like that defeats the point of having the brush shaped this way. I think I'd be down with this if it was just a tiny bit narrower with the same stiffness. I think the stiffness is on point because it's not too flimsy or stiff... I just never use this because it's too wide


Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Studio Angled Eyeliner brush

on 1/25/2018 6:48:00 PM

This is probably the worst brush I've tried from ELF> Most of their brushes are A+... This one is terrible. The bristles are far too short and barely existent. You can make it work but it's a PITA. Honestly their $1 detail brush with the white handle makes a far better eyeliner brush than this thing. Luckily I got it on sale so it was just over $1... but it's just so confusing that this brush is so bad when all of their other brushes are phenomenal


Blush -e.l.f. -Powder Blush Palette - Light

on 1/25/2018 6:46:00 PM

I got this as an extra in one of my ELF purchases way back when. Considering it was free, it's decent.. but I definitely wouldn't spend money on this. It's not the worst quality but I think their single studio blush pans are better for some reason. These don't blend out very well... they're inconsistent.. Whatever ELF uses in their powders always seem to break me out. (and it's not TALC) If you can grab these on sale, maybe try it out if you're not picky about blush... but it's not for me.

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Crease Brush

on 1/25/2018 6:43:00 PM

The main reason I'm rating this brush so high is because I think it's very unique. The picture doesn't do this brush justice on exactly how small this little blender brush is. It's by far the smallest blender detail brush I have. Cozette makes a similar small blender brush and this is even smaller than that. Now, the handle and all that is standard size... it's specifically the bristles. It's tiny... Anyway... if you have hooded eyes or need a super small blending brush that's the shape of the MAC 224, then check this brush out. For the price, it's definitely worth a shot. (especially if you can get ahold of it during one of their 50% off sales)

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -small tapered brush

on 1/25/2018 6:39:00 PM

This brush is excellent. As stated in a different ELF brush review, ELF has thankfully improved on their brush ferrule. I haven't had any issues with the ferrule coming away from the handle like I did with their previous Studio brushes. This brush in particular is lovely for setting the undereye area, applying highlighter or whatever else you'd want it for. Since the bristles are synthetic you can use it with any type of product.

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Defining/Angled Eye Brush

on 1/25/2018 6:36:00 PM

ELF has vastly improved on their brushes overall, especially their little $1's. (like this one) The bristles are now surprisingly soft and nice. I've never had any issues with the ferrule pulling away from the handle. I don't recall much or any shedding after washing. Honestly, I would recommend these $1 brushes just to have on hand because they're cheap and not bad quality especially if you're new to makeup or just need extra brushes.
This particular shape of brush isn't my favorite.. but I just don't care for the style of brush period... It's still good to have around and more than worth the price.

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Selfie Ready Foundation Brush

on 1/25/2018 6:33:00 PM

Nice brush overall I just don't find myself using it. I definitely prefer a makeup sponge when applying foundation and not brushes/etc. The bristles are very soft and nicely tapered. ELF has definitely improved on her handles. They used to almost always fall off at the ferrel where I'd have to glue it back on... The newer studio brushes no longer seem to have that issue.
If you like face brushes for foundation or even cream blush, I'd give this (or a similar brush of theirs) a go

Highlighters -e.l.f. -Cosmetics Baked Highlighter

on 1/25/2018 6:26:00 PM

Even after scraping off the top layers I still think this stuff is overhyped. It extenuates the texture of my skin to a ridiculous degree... and I don't even have much texture in the areas I put it to begin with. it's just not flattering. I also find it difficult to blend out or even pick up with a brush to begin with. If you're looking for an inexpensive highlighter I feel like there's far better options out there especially now when it's Highlighter-palooza

I overall do not care for ELF's powdered products in general.

Mascara -e.l.f. -Studio Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara

foto

I ordered some elf products online, and received this as a free mascara. I have to say that although I love elf, none of their mascaras have worked out for me.

I have thin, sparse, short lashes and this mascara does nothing more than tint them black. Nothing. No volume, no length, no nothing. Nada. I'm not sure if it flakes, because I immediately removed it and put on a better mascara, which I had purchased from the drugstore - I believe it was a L'Oreal mascara.

I have thrown this in the bin after only a couple of attempts. I rarely chuck makeup unless it literally does nothing for me, or there are harmful effects. While this mascara may be good for people who prefer a natural look, I don't recommend it for anyone who likes full, long, defined lashes. It was a bust. Sorry, elf!
