Eyeliner -e.l.f. -Mineral Eyeliner

This is an average eyeliner. It's soft and glides on well (there is absolutely no tugging) and the pigment is fine (I have the coffee-coloured one). Drawing a fairly thin line is not a problem. It doesn't last on my lids all day though, so I need to reapply after about 4-5 hours. As there are eyeliners that do a better jobb, I wouldn't buy it again.

Primer/ Corrector -e.l.f. -Beautifully Bare Luminous Matte Makeup Primer

on 7/8/2018 8:10:00 PM

I love this primer. It keeps me matte but also natural. It helps prolong my makeup and prevents cracking/ creasing, It’s perfect for under eye my eyes. I love the consistency of it, it’s not oily and not dry but somewhere in the middle. It keeps me matte for an extra bit of time, my forehead, nose chin and cheeks need slight touching up about 7 hours into my day (usually work.) I love the packaging also, it’s simple and easy and clean. my only complaint with this is the scent— it fades quickly but it’s def annoying, florally. It’s gross.


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

I bought this by mistake, I meant to purchase the blemish control primer by e.l.f.; but I decided to try it since I already had it. It was horrible, I have oily skin so I wouldn’t normally pick a hydrating solution, but this was awful from the beginning. It feels greasy when you apply it and the feeling doesn’t go away, it sits on top of your skin and our foundation will slide right off your face! Never purchasing again


Primer/ Corrector -e.l.f. -Studio Blemish Control Primer

foto

I used this product for a long time when I didn’t know any better because I was just getting into makeup. It is fairly inexpensive, but as a lot of people have said, the packaging is really deceptive and you’re not getting very much product. I’d say it did okay on the ‘blemish control’ since I had no real breakouts when I used it, but as someone with oily skin, I could see my makeup sliding off my face within a couple hours! It was awful, especially in warmer temperatures. I guess for a beginner with drier skin it’s okay, but I’ll definitely not be using it anymore


Skincare - Face -e.l.f. -Hydrating Water Essence

E.L.F. - Refreshing unexpected cooling relief. Wisconsin weather becomes brutal when heat index climbs over 100 degrees. Under adverse and desperate conditions combined with laziness, I wanted to refresh skin without removing sunscreen. I saturated a cotton pad with Essence and patted on skin. Cooling relief was immediate. Since relief was overwhelming refreshing when patted on skin, I thought I could rub Essence on skin for cooling relief. I was wrong. Don't rub Essence on skin. Essence hydrates skin. Essence is a thick product that is not a lotion. Apply as directed on a cotton pad. Considering the outstanding value of this E.L.F product, I grabbed my bottle and cotton pads to share this cooling discovery as the heat index climbed into triple digits.

Lip Gloss -e.l.f. -Gotta Glow Lip Tint (all colors)

on 7/8/2018 8:06:00 AM

I kind of regret this purchase. I use a color changing lip product daily. The reason I like products like this is because you can swipe them on in a flash with no mirror, they tint the lips much longer than a regular lipstick, are moisturizing, don't look like makeup and give just the right hint of mlbb color. Very low maintenance. I typically use Lipstick Queen's Frog Prince, or good old Tangee from the Vermont Country Store.

I was so excited to see this for only $6. It showed up as a beautiful natural rosy pink and other than my lips feeling a bit drier than I was used to, I thought I was sold. About 30 minutes later as I was leaving the house, I noticed that my color was completely gone. My lips actually looked a little worse than normal, like they were a little pale from being parched. I loaded on a bunch more, and at the end of a 40 minute car ride, it had vanished again.

I did like the color so I kept trying to work with it. I was hoping that this would stain as my Frog Prince and Tangee do. I put those on once in the morning and often times don't have to touch up all day. But the elf lip tint looks great for 20 minutes, then I need to put on another product. I tried it for 2 weeks straight and used up nearly a tube trying to keep some color on my lips, whereas Frog prince can last for many months even with daily use, and I have had my Tangee lipstick for years. By that measure, the elf tint ends up being much more expensive.

My lips also began to crack, which is something I have zero tolerance for.

I switched back to my beloved frog prince and life is simpler again. Swipe it on in the morning and my lips are tinted and moizturized all day. Zero maintenance. And my lips are buttery soft.

Sometimes you find inexpensive drugstore gems but in this case, I'd say save your $ and put it toward a tube of the good stuff.

Oh yes, and the cover is always falling off.

The packaging was pretty and looked like other elf skin care products. It was nice and light with little to no fragrance. However, it left the dreaded gray mask on my face. I looked casket ready. I tried to cover it with a B.B. cream and it didn’t work. Maybe for someone with a different skin tone it would work but for me it was a no go!!

Blush -e.l.f. -Blush - Tickled Pink

foto

I'm quite pale (N10-15), with muted coloring and textured skin so struggle with blush. I really like this as I can apply it how I imagine people apply blush 'normally', i.e. without having to use a sparse fan brush and a very light hand.

This is a neutral pale pink, similar to Benefit Dandelion - perhaps slightly warmer and less chalky...but definitely one for the very fair. This only shows up a tiny bit when I don't have any other makeup on as the natural color in my cheeks competes - however it wakes me up really nicely and adds color back when I'm wearing tinted moisturizer or foundation.

I have a lot of other more expensive, 'fun' blushes but this wins out as easy to use and natural-looking. I would disagree re. lack of pigment - it's deliberately pale so will get chalky if you have deeper-toned skin and layer it. However that same thing makes it wearable on paler skins.

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

I'm impressed. I do like e.l.f. products but had not tried the blush. Typically for blush I go towards Tarte or other higher priced brands, but while in CVS I saw this cute palette for $8. I love it. It's a nice little collection of shades that go on smoothly and last all day, even on a hot day. Also, e.l.f. is cruelty-free, which lately has become more important to me. A great find.

Treatments (Face) -e.l.f. -Zit Zapper

Hi MUA & Happy 4th Of July 2018!

REVIEW On e.l.f Zit Zapper.

Last thing in the World is when you have a blind pimple and you Know that you have to stop it b4 it becomes a full blown ouchy mess, that ruins a week out of your life! For $2.00 you can't go wrong. It clears it up without overdrying. For Me I was using Proactiv Acne Kit for 12+ year's! I swear by it, it's worth every penny! I have no acne scars, red marks, ect. For chronic acne, Please see & consult a dermatologist. I admit that I didn't and took things into my own hands! I was the type of person who grew up being called All kinds of cruel name's. From age 12 to 20. That's probably why I chose to be a Cosmetologist! I've used tar soaps, special Dr recommend precription junk that made my face worse and drying! Ontop of more breakouts, cystic acne. But e.l.f is awesome in spot acne, during the time of the month or stress acne or light teenage acne. You spot treat with this brand and you must clean the applicator after each use! Otherwise you will only spread the dreadful acne! Whether you use this brand or a brand of your choice that's more expensive and has 2% Salicylic Acid. I figured it out, that through higher Salicylic Acid amount isn't better! Oh it sounds good, but it leads to unbelievable drying on the outside of the pimple, while you STILL have a pimple or pimples! e.l.f has aloe in it, helping heal without drying! I've been there before! And yes it's AWEFUL! People and kids can be VERY cruel! This comes from the heart and experience, and education! At 47, a monthly pimple or two is nothing. BTW: you can clean the applicatior with hydrogen peroxide. Don't over do the acne cleansing process, that also will make it much worse, and no matter what kind of acne you have, You MUST moisture. Think of going out in the sun for years without ever moisturizing your skin! You'll see the results later on in your life! I REALLY HOPE this review and info helps you as it did Me! Good Luck! Xo

Lips -e.l.f. -Aqua Beauty Radiant Gel Lip Stain

I use the nude (not berry) shade and love it. Have a hard time finding in stores, will definitely pickup a couple next time I find them - $4!
Edit 8/2018 - I still like this stain and carry it in my purse, but it's fairly drying and needs a balm over it. I'm still on the hunt for a natural stain with more moisture.

Lips -e.l.f. -Aqua Beauty Radiant Gel Lip Stain

This is an excellent lip stain. I'm so glad I found this.

I have it in Dewy Berry, and it was $4 (I think). The tube is really sturdy and compact, and I'm not stressed about it leaking all over the contents of my bag. Dewy Berry is a self-explanatory shade. It looks berry-leaning-rosy with one layer, but can definitely be deepened by adding more layers. It's not drying, and doesn't cling to texture on lips! It has a slight taste, it's not great, but not awful. A slight cooling effect. Unlike most lip stains I've tried, this applies easily—the gel is liquidy but just viscous enough, and it coats lips evenly. I apply with the doe-foot applicator, rub it into my lips with a finger, LET DRY between coats, and usually top with something once it sets. I can barely feel it on, and it lasts fairly well. It's not bulletproof, but it does stain, especially if you layer coats.

I can't speak for the other shades, but Dewy Berry imparts the most translucently luscious berry tint. It's perfect for summer. This is honestly in the top 5 lip stains I've ever tried. (Anyone remember the old Nars stains? They were PERFECT.)

Love these! They are a bargain, easy to use, and give natural lasting results. Not a great color payoff , but not terrible either. I’m guessing I have 5-10 of these floating around my house at all times

I’m surprised that this doesn’t get better reviews. It’s great for layering under sunscreen or moisturizer. I’m loving it for summer for my combo/dehydrated skin.

Finally got it work !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I finally got it to work. My steps : wash face , tone, moisturize and primer. The trick i think is that your face still has to be moist from the moisturize. And that helps the primer spread onto the face. Used it with my Este Lauder and Maybelline Super Stay.
