This is the first ELF eyeshadow I have ever tried, color me impressed! For $10 this is pretty fantastic. These mattes aren't chalky at all, they don't have a lot of fallout, and they blend just so well..I like the slim/compact packaging, reminds me of the Dose of Colors 5 pan palettes as far as packaging, may have to check out the nude one next! Definitely recommend. This rates about a 4.3, but deserves 5 lippies just based on price vs quality, it really is a great palette for drugstore. 💋💄❣

I really like this product, I´m medium fair and I use the white shade to place the concealer in my undereyes and is perfect for that, doesn´t crease and doesn´t look WHITE. Is very pigmented, the packaging feels like high end, the mirror inside has a great size and also good quality as all the product. Is affordable and worth it.


Brows -e.l.f. -Lock On Liner and Brow Cream

I really like this product!!!! I believe I got this in medium brown? it's the middle shade. It does go on a lot darker than in the pot which I don't mind since you just need a little bit of product. Having said that though, I think i'll go back and purchase the lighter shade for days where I don't want such a bold look.

This brow cream lasts all day on me. I had it on for over 10hrs and at the end of the day it still looked as if i just applied it.

The medium brown is a nice cool toned brown. Very similar to the MAC concrete e/s i was using before this. I don't find this product too "crispy" since I always use a spoolie / brow brush to comb through once it's dry and that gives it a more natural looking finish.

I haven't tried this as an eyeliner yet but I'm super excited to try next time!

Cost is $6 CAD and I most definitely will be buying more! I

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

foto

Nice tinted primer, but I would NOT rely on this for sun protection and would caution anyone else from doing so. The high SPF may lull you into treating this primer like it's a skincare product, but I highly doubt anyone is using it in large enough quantities (a minimum quarter teaspoon for the face, not including the neck) to actually get SPF 50 level protection (or even SPF 15) out of it. Because while this product looks great when applied sparingly, it looks chalky and unnatural when applied with a heavy hand. Less is more is the key to making this product work for you as a primer/sheer foundation, and less is more is the opposite approach you need to take with sun protection.

Anyway, I do really like this product as a primer/corrector. I have a fairly good complexion and don't really need or want to use face products with a lot of coverage, and this product has just enough to make me look more "polished." It smooths out my pores, evens out my complexion, and has a nice matte finish. Which is exactly what I want from this type of product. When used in small amounts (just a little dab on my nose, cheeks, chin and forehead), it just melts into my skin and looks like I'm not wearing anything. It spreads and blends out very easily with my fingers, though I'm sure it'd also apply nicely with a sponge.

The only thing I really dislike about this product (other than the way it looks when I've applied it heavily enough to provide adequate sun protection) is the packaging, The clear cap fits so tightly on the tube, that I snapped the dispenser off the tube while trying to get the cap off. I now have to dispense the product by squeezing it out like toothpaste, which isn't ideal. Still, I'll keep using it and will repurchase it when I run out. It's a little pricey by ELF standards, but there isn't anything else at this price point that I like better.


Blush -e.l.f. -Monochromatic Multi-Stick

I have been using a Boomstick ($29) for blush and I am getting to the end of the tube. I have been trying to find a cheaper version so I was excited to try this one. I ordered it in the Berry shade, which is kind of a dark fuschia. It is quite a bit brighter and pinker than my Boomstick, which is more of a brick red shade, but it is not bad. I just dot it once on the apple of my cheek and then blend out with my fingertips. The price was $4 for a small tube, but based on how little I am using it should last me a while. I would like to try some of the other shades next. I am actually amazed at the nice quality of the Elf products I have tried given their low cost!

I LOVE THIS HIGHLIGHTER SO MUCH!!! I am fair skinned and this is the perfect champagne shade to give me a very blinding glow (or natural if im lighthanded). Just scratch off the very top layer and the product is SO pigmented. Like. SOOOO PIGMENTED. Ive had it for a long time and havent run out yet, but i will DEFINITELY be repurchasing.


Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Studio Contour Brush (Eye)

It has a great domed shape, it is firm enough so that it packs on color in the crease or lower lash line and really gives a precise application. It doesnt shed and works so well! Love it

This is such a great product. The colors are unique but they somehow compliment each other so well. The color range really inspires me every time i open it. The shades blend well and are pretty pigmented. There is a variety of options as far as looks go, from every day to glam to smokey. The packaging is really nice. It feels sturdy and has a really nice big mirror in it. I would like it if they included a brush or something, but this is a great eyeshadow palette

Eye Shadow -e.l.f. -Studio Prism Eyeshadow

I dont think that this alone is sufficient for an eye look, because there are no matte shades, but the shades in and of themselves are beautiful! I have the naked palette, not the sunset one (pictured here) and the shades are so nice. They are soft, not powdery at all, RIDICULOUSLY pigmented, and are a great lid color for any neutral or glam eye look. The third shade is my favorite, it is a stunning rose gold shade. It is $10, which I think is a couple bucks more than its worth, but its still very affordable, id say.

Brows -e.l.f. -Eyebrow Kit

on 4/3/2018 7:19:00 PM

This was one of the very first eyebrow products i ever purchased and it is not bad at all. I only recently hit pan, so you get a lot of use out of it. It has a great price, it is only like $3 at target I think. The color light is the one i used, and i have medium brown hair but it looked darker than my hair (which I prefer). The pomade side is a bit warm toned, but using the powder shade on top helps to cool that down a bit. It lasts for hours on me, and it looks good. Its easy to work with, so it is beginner-friendly. I recommend!


Eye Shadow -e.l.f. -Flawless Eyeshadow Matte for Plum #21630

on 4/3/2018 7:15:00 PM

I bought this when I was going through a phase of really wanting to play with an all matte eye look, and i was so so disappointed. Its chalky and dusty and there is NO color pay off, even when you dip your brush in again and again and try to build it up. When its built up to having the SLIGHTEST amount of color, and you try to blend the edges at all, the eyeshadow literally just gets erased. It blends right into nothing. Very disappointed.

Eye Shadow -e.l.f. -Flawless Eyeshadow - Tantalizing Taupe

Ive had FOUR different colors of this palette line by elf and they have yet to really impress me. This one was pretty bad. The bottom three shades are very lackluster, they all look about the same on the eye and they are this strange in-between formula where they arent matte, but they arent a satin or a shimmer. They just are powdery with big glitter pieces that look awful when applied on the eye. They dont blend, they have a bit of fallout and they just look muddy. And the packaging is terrible because the pans are so narrow that its difficult to dip your brush in without getting some of the next color in it too. Save your $2 and get something better, like ELF's ten pan matte eyeshadows.


Toners -e.l.f. -Hydrating Water Essence

foto

Grab this if you see it! I can't find it in stores anymore. This product has been a great addition to my skincare routine. It does not work miracles, it does not contain actives. This is simply an additional layer of moisture that can be added to your daily steps. It also acts like a skincare primer, in that it helps other products to apply and sink in better.

The way I use it is: after leaving the shower I spray my entire face and neck with a facial spray (mario badescu), then I pour a splash of the water essence into my palm, pat hands together, and then press into my face until it is slightly sticky. Then you know it has sunk in! My skin looks and feels plumper after the fact. Then I press my moisturizer into my skin and follow with an oil. I really believe this product helps my moisturizer to really do it's job and plumps my skin overall. When i first tried this and just rubbed it across my face quickly it didn't do much. You really must take time to press it in.

Packaging is sleek especially for E.L.F. Smell is inoffensive. Price is on point. I just really enjoy using it everyday!

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

I received this waterproof mascara as a free gift with an Elf order. I tried it out on one eye and was amazed at how it instantly it made my lashes look long and defined compared to my other eye. It was very noticeable! I actually said "Wow" to myself without thinking. I have now worn this to work for a few 12 hour shifts and it has held up very well. It has very minimal flaking and does not give me raccoon eyes. It dries quickly. I absolutely love this mascara and will be buying it in bulk!

This was moisturizing, if a little oily, but I think it made me break out. This is probably better for drier skin types.
