Palettes -E.L.F. -Cosmetics Beautifully Bare Natural Glow Face Palette

I bought this because I'm a fair redhead and it looked like it'd go well with my coloring and not be too overpowering. When I first tried this the only thing I got pigment out of was the bronzer, I was so disappointed. I tried it 2 more times before I tossed it aside in the get rid of pile.
Today I read a post that mentioned scraping the top later off of elf blushes to get to the pigment so I tried it and it works! I really like the finish of this palette now, its soft and natural but gives great color. Now I regret tossing all those other elf blushes in the past. Maybe I'll give them another shot now that I know the secret to getting good wear out of them.
I also just realized why highlighters are so coveted. My skin has gotten blah since nearing 40, i never really found a need for highlighter till now but I have seen the light!

Lip Treatments -E.L.F. -Studio Lip Exfoliator

foto

As winter approached I noticed my lips getting more and more chapped so I decided something needed to be done about it, I went out and picked up this, only $3, and I was so excited to get home and use it.. I followed the directions exactly as was on the packaging.. When using it from the applicator there was hardly any exfoliation at all, it was more like a lip balm at first so I thought maybe I just needed to use it a few more times. I wiped off a few layers and finally got some slight exfoliation so I decided to scratch off some of the product and used my fingers and this worked much better but still not enough. The exfoliant seems to diminish as soon as it touches the lips. I love E.L.F products but this one was a miss for me.

love. I don't have any fine lines or wrinkles (yet). but it's very nice and smoothing. it helps my foundation and concealer glide on smoothly. if you have dry skin this may help but it's not going to help flakey dry skin. but this primer is not as cheap as it looks it's $6 for .47floz not 1.floz half of the packaging is empty...


Highlighters -E.L.F. -Studio Baked Highlighter

Packaging is sort of cheap and plastic-y, but it was four dollars and it's simple and easy to use. Like people are saying, there's a hard layer of product that's just sort of a scratchy top coat from being baked. When you scratch it off, it becomes beautiful, soft, and pigmented. I got the shades Blush Gems and Pink Diamonds: dupes for JS's Skin Frosts I would say. My go-to highlighters for a more natural but not completely subtle look. If I want glow but not blind, I'll reach for these, which I do on a daily basis. Got shades for every skin tone. Into it. Almost down completely to pan on my Blush Gems. BG also makes for a beautiful shadow as well.

Eye Shadow -E.L.F. -Smudge Pot Cream Eyeshadow

Got this at 1.50 at a sale in Wine Not. One of the best drugstore cream eyeshadows out there: Spot on pigmentation and the texture is soft enough to work with easily. Used on outer corners and crease and it blended just fine and agreed well with my other powder eyeshadows. Lasts all day.


Blush -E.L.F. -studio blush in berry merry

I bought this because I was looking for a cruelty-free dupe for Nars Sin. The color - a plummy mauve - is similar to Sin, but this has far more glitter in it. Large, noticeable chunks of glitter. If that's okay with you, it is a pretty color. The packaging is very nice for such a cheap product and the formula had enough pigment and longevity.

Lipstick -E.L.F. -Velvet matte lipstick

I have the color blushing brown and its a very brown color, not much pink, which I thought it was going to be because of the word "blushing". Im surprised at the quality of these lipsticks. Its smooth and rich, yet nice and matte. It doesnt dry out my outrageously dry lips either. And gotta love the price tag too. Im getting them all!

Mascara -E.L.F. -Studio Volume Plumping Mascara

Well, who knew? The mascara I had in my travel bag was 'smudge-city' no matter what I did. Making me nuts as I hate constantly monitoring black shadows under my eyes when I already look tired enough! While in the grocery store I picked this up and it's been great so far. No smudging, makes my lashes dark and defined, but still natural looking. Formula is not too gloopy and the brush is full and easy to use. It's not diva-level mascara or something you'd necessarily want for a big night out, but for every day, it's does the job. It comes off easily with soap/water or a makeup wipe. Try it! For the price, it's a steal.

Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. -foundation blurring brush

on 12/16/2017 4:28:00 PM

I bought this thinking I could apply blush with it. its a bit to hard for that so I started using it to brush my foundation after I apply it. it works great. I see a difference. it makes your foundation much smoother and slightly air brushed. the price was great. i paid next to nothing for it. im really happy with it

Eye Shadow -E.L.F. -Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette

This isn’t the best. I know it’s cheap but you can get better quality from Makeup Revolution. This just isn’t pigmented and on me, the colours all muddy together and fade. Even with a primer, it’s still quite weak. Pros - can be used as transition shades or brow shades. But for me, I cannot use this as a stand alone palette because of its quality.

I love this mascara. It's perfect for me. It's cheap and works well. I tend to lean towards the more natural and less wet foundation formulas. It's been a long road of trial and error and I really like this one. It separates and lengthens like a dream. Clumps are minimal and my lashes hold a curl!

I bought this searching for a cruelty free brand that wasn’t $30 a tube. I saw good reviews but apparently that’s the old formula. I don’t like this mascara at all. It’s very wet and adds length but does so by clumping my lashes together. Gives Zero separation. Adds NO volume. Prone to clumps. And the flakes! By the end of day I’ve got pieces under mg eyes. And God forbid you workout or do anything physical with this one, you’ll be left with one big stuck together eyelash. I’m unimpressed and would never repurchase. I liked the tube packaging and brush. The brush was a thinner nylon type that really lets you get close to the lash line.


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

I bought all 3 of these because I wasn't sure what would look good on me. I tried Red Orange Wash first, and did one layer on my lips and it was a sheer red orange flush that leaned more natural than bold. I put a second layer on and WOW, this transformed to a nice bold stain. This is watery and will need several minutes to dry while you let your lips rest and don't move them around much. I tried to talk on the phone while this was wet and I moved it around too much and had to take it off and start completely over. The second time, I waited for 5 minutes before I started doing stuff. I did a tissue test a little bit of color does come off on the tissue, but my lips don't look unevenly colored so I'm not bothered. I put chapstick on after it dried and the color hasn't budged much. I'll have to wear one of these to work and see how it lasts through the day. For right now, my first impression is that this product is a good buy. These were $4 at Target. I'd love it if they released more colors!

I've uploaded a picture of me wearing one coat of Dewy Berry. It looks like my lips are naturally a pretty pink! Love it.

I find this product to be okay. Sadly the dark shade is not dark enough for me. So I hardly use the powder but the gel comes very handy.it's quite inexpensive.
