Lips -E.L.F. -Aqua Beauty Radiant Gel Lip Stain - Rouge Radiance

on 7/18/2017 6:44:00 PM

I love e.l.f. and wanted to like Rouge Radiance, but I find it underwhelming.
I also own this product in the shade "Dewy Berry," and that one's just fine. However, Rouge Radiance just doesn't seem to have much of a stain effect. In the tube, Rouge Radiance looks like a gorgeous jewel-tone cool red; if that color translated to my lips, I'd be thrilled.
Unfortunately, even two generous layers of Rouge Radiance just results in a faint sort of purplish-pink tint. It's better than sickly-pale mushroom-colored lips, but only slightly. It does stay on well, but since there's little color in the first place, that's kind of beside the point.
I'll buy e.l.f. products again, but not this one.

If you're looking for a really good, inexpensive lip stain from a good cruelty-free company, I recommend Silk Naturals' stains; they outperform e.l.f.'s, in my opinion. continued >>

It's a nice blush brush. Densely packed, soft and precise. I use it mainly with my blush, but it's also working great for contouring. I've had it for more than 2 years now and it's still in great shape, no shedding and very budget friendly.

Scrubs -E.L.F. -Gentle Peeling Exfoliant

I LOOOOVE this stuff.

Let's be honest here: this is a dupe for Skin Inc's Pure Revival Peel. It does the exact same thing - you rub it into your face, your skin exfoliates immediately and then you wash it off. Except Skin Inc's 2 oz bottle is $55... and ELF's bottle is 3.4 oz and $10. That's right, same product, with more in the bottle for $45 less.

In terms of ELF products, it's a little pricier than normal (which seems to be the trend with their skincare line) but it's totally worth it. It exfoliates your skin just as well if not better than most scrubs - to be honest, after finding this I've pretty much stopped using scrubs. This is just quicker and easier, and my skin feels baby-soft afterward.

I have already gone through a bottle of this, so yeah, I'd repurchase it. It's a steal compared to the high end dupe and I'll happily buy it again and again.

Blush -E.L.F. -Powder Blush Palette - Light

I normally love elf products. I was given this palette as a gift and while I think it would be great for the average person, it does not work for me at all.

In short, if you are like me and have ULTRA FAIR, PORCELAIN SKIN.... this will not work for you. NC/NW10 or lighter in Mac? Don't bother.

Highly pigmented powders are excellent when it comes to eyeshadows, but as a blush? Can't use them. Even if I barely touch my brush to the pan and tap off the excess, I still end up with wayyyy too much pigment on my face. If the colors were much, much lighter it might work... but as they are I just can't use them. The palette is just collecting dust in my bin now.

If you have a regular light to medium skin tone (read: most brands have a foundation/concealer in your color), this will probably be fantastic for you! But extra pale girls, stay away.

I got this highlighter in blush gems and I absolutely love it! It is my favorite highlighter I have ever had. You can scrape off the top layer if you want but you don't have to. I like the slight pinkness of it ( I don't even need blush!) and the price is wonderful! I really hope you choose to buy this highlighter and if you end up not liking it it's okay because it's only three dollars!!

Primer/ Corrector -E.L.F. -Poreless Face Primer

foto

I have used other elf primers which work pretty good, but this one does not work on oily skin. It feels velvety going on and you don't need much product. But if you have oily skin do not buy this! Your oil will seep through within a hour or two after it's been on. If you have dry to normal skin this primer will probably work wonders on you. It somewhat covers pores but I was a bit disappointed. One of things that made me quite upset was the amount of product, you can take the bottle apart and there is less then 1/4 product in the bottle. So overall I don't like this primer

I have been looking for this everywhere, I finally found it. I can't stand how it's so hard to find, I don't understand why it's not in any stores hardly. The price is good though.
I got this in moonlight pearls, the other colors are too dark for me, it's a very pretty color, it's a beige which I don't normally like, but this also looks a little silvery so it's good to put on my cheeks and nose. Its not too dark like most beige highlighters so I think it'll be good on pale skin. Its very shimmery, not glittery.
It blends well and looks more natural than that fake highlight look. I haven't noticed what others said about having to scrape off the top layer yet. Elf products usually break out my face horribly, so I'm hoping this doesn't.

Blush -E.L.F. -Powder Blush Palette - Light

I think I got a bad copy. While everyone says its amazingly pigmented, easily blendable and such, to me it seemed the other way around. I swatched it on my hands, and barely any pigment came out. When i apply it on my face, you can barely see it. I will repurchase for the sole purpose that I believe It had a deffect.


Primer/ Corrector -E.L.F. -Mineral Infused Face Primer

I have extremely oily, acne prone skin. One advantage of this primer is that it never broke me out. The price is cheap, but as for the packaging even though it seems that it's filled entirely, there is a little cylinder in the container that takes away from the formula size. Now on to actual priming effect:
-no breakouts
However as far as oil control and makeup longevity go, i've had different results with different foundations...sometimes my face looked average(but never great) sometimes i sported a cake face. So i guess it ultimately depends on trial and error. But i have to say I didn't see a significant, beneficial effect on my face. I will not repurchase.

I have combination skin with signs of aging. It's not magic but it feels great on the skin. Keeps it feeling hydrated all day. My foundation stays in place too.

Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. -Studio ultimate blending brush $6

I like this brush for powder application I use the selfie foundation brush for my base. Then I like to set it with powder using this brush. I find it applies powder smoothly and it is so easy to blend the powder into my skin. I haven't had any shedding at all yet with this brush. It's very soft and works quite well in my case. I have even used this to apply blush and it worked great. I have the RT one and I like them both. I honestly use the elf one more as I find it to be a touch softer on my face. I also like how this brush gets around my nose and under my eyes. So for me I'm very happy with this. For 6$ I think it's great especially for powder products in my case.

I was really excited to try this primer, as I'd read/heard so many great reviews. As much as I wanted it to work for me, it just doesn't. Very slippery....
The positive part is it did minimize my pores - but not for a long time. It also did feel very soft to the touch after it dried. However, my makeup seemed to break down over it...definitely will not repurchase.

Bronzers -E.L.F. -Bronzer with Brush

on 7/16/2017 1:50:00 AM

This has become a two in one product for me. I use it as a bronzer and I like it. But also when I'm short on time and want to put on some eyeshadow quickly but don't want to have to blend or use more than one color I use this with a bigger, fluffy eyeshadow brush in the crease. It's a foolproof, quick, natural look. I've hit the pan and will repurchase. This time I'll get more than one color. You can't beat it for the price.

Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. -Selfie Ready Foundation Brush

I like this brush a lot I used it to apply BB cream and it does it, so well. It really was good at getting the coverage around my nose and under my eyes. I was quite pleased at how well this brush applies bases. My BB cream was a medium coverage and it applied it well without streaking or any hairs coming loose. The brush handle is sturdy and I was very happy with how well it buffed my base in. My skin looked flawless with no lines or anything. With some brushes I might have to go over it with my hands so everything is even but not with this brush. My skin looked so smooth and flawless I was seriously impressed.

For 6$ I couldn't be happier it works so well. Is easy to clean too I use Dr Bronners solid soap and this cleans and dries no problem. I was very impressed with how well this brush worked. For the price I'm super stoked because if I lose this when traveling it's not the end of the world. But at the same time I love this bad boy because it does such a good job. Recommended.
