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

I found this a bit greasy at the beginning, but if you only use one drop, this works really well. I would only recommend this for people that have a really dry skin, if you're oily at all this product is not for you. However, this really hydrates my dry skin and does a really good job of prepping my skin before applying make up. It also brings a nice shine to my skin.

This products WORKS! I notice a real difference in my eye shadow when wearing this, it stays on the lid longer and there's minimal creasing. I also like that it really brightens up the eyelid before applying eye shadow. For what I spent on this (2 bucks) this is a really really great product.

It is absolutely not waterproof. It smudges badly and transfers to my hands if I touch my eyes. It is easy to apply and has a great colour deposit but I'll be tossing it out as I need waterproof and my regular liner is less trouble than this

This corrector is pretty terrible! The colour is fine but the formula is too thick and if you try to put foundation on top of it - whether with a brush or a sponge - you end up removing the corrector. It's cheap but for me it proved useless.


Powders -e.l.f. Cosmetics -High Definition Powder - Soft Luminance

I bought this because Target didn't carry the Fit Me shade of loose powder I wanted to try. It's very light, and very silky, but at first I was confused because it didn't make my T-zone very matte like most other powders do. Once I looked at it in a magnifying mirror, I realized that this powder does have shimmer in it. I'm not sure if I'll end up using this much-- it seems like a lot of work to use a different powder on my T-zone, and then this on the rest of my face.

The packaging is interesting. It has a sifter that you can close by turning if halfway. Still kind of hard to get the powder out, but I appreciate the detail.

Edit: despite being finely milled, I don't like the way this highlights texture. I tried on it almost bare (sunscreen only) skin. It gave my nose a poreless (if weirdly pearlescent) finish but a few hours later my skin looked parched. My cheeks are very dry this winter and this doesn't seem to help matters. If anything the little bit of shimmer just seems to highlight the dryness.

For $1, this is my go-to brush to apply powder to fill in my brows. Sometimes I use a matte eyeshadow, and this brush dots the color in perfectly. I could also see using this as a lip brush like others have mentioned, or also a lower lash line brush for shadow and nail corrector for fixing polish edges. Great find!!!!

Eye Shadow -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Aqua beauty - Molten Liquid Eyeshadow

Pros: Glitter or sparkle seems to be refined, not little kid makeup like, there's a cool (no pun intended) cooling effect (only lasts for a second), and you can remove this with straight up water.

Cons: I put this on at 10 or 11 AM, and by the evening, say 7 or 8, it was gone!!! I don't use a "primer" for shadow. For any shadow at any price point, I use whatever concealer I'm using for my undereyes at the time, and they all last from the morning until I remove my makeup at night. The color is pretty and it lasts MOST of the day, so I'll use it until I run out.

I got mine in the shade Brushed Copper, and I think it should be renamed to Champagne b/c it's not anywhere close to what I consider a Brushed Copper.

This product does nothing for me, I do not see that it makes my makeup last longer or keep my face matte.
It has a mild scent to it, but I do not find it to be overwhelming. The mist is not as fine as it should be, so if you spray a couple of times, you will end up with too much product on your face.
It retails for 4 $ for 2.02 fl. oz./60 ml


Loose Powders -e.l.f. Cosmetics -High Definition Powder

This product is finely milled, and it does not leave a white cast on me (I'm a NW20-25). It does not look cakey, but it does not control the oil in my T-zone very long, approx. 3-4 hours.
The product comes in the old black bulky packaging. It can be messy if you peel completely the seal off (if you only punch a few holes, it will be it easier for you to use it without all the fuss)


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

on 12/22/2018 9:35:00 PM

Pros: did what it was supposed to do (remove dead skin), had a pleasant smell and taste (to a degree)

cons: some exfoliating particles were too aggressive and not uniform, the packaging is misleading (it looks as if you can just swipe this on your lips and exfoliate as you swipe, but no. It's way too thick, stiff and pasty to do such a thing.) I had to "pinch" a small chunk off and then rub it around my lips to exfoliate. So kind of defeats the purpose of it being in a lipstick form. If I have to pinch off a chunk, it might as well be in a little pot. But this thick pasty stuff in a pot wouldn't be good. Lastly, the smell and taste can be too much after awhile. It lingers. Btw, I got mine in clear. I still have a tiny bit left, probably enough for one more exfoliation but I'm throwing it out because it's starting to smell rancid, like an oil in it has gone bad.

Unfortunately, I have not been impressed by many of ELF's products...I have a typical lipstick, their "moisturizing" formula in Romantic Rose, and two highlighting products (a cream highlighter palette and their new jelly highlighter in Bubbly), and their Aqua Beauty liquid eyeshadow in Brushed Copper (?). After I finish with those, I'm not repurchasing from ELF any longer. I'm just very underwhelmed with their products that I've tried, and I literally got what I paid for.

I wanted to love this product but for the price was not expecting much of it. When you spray it is not a soft and light mist. It. feel like it's running down on your face. My opinion is You will have the same results by using plain water.

Liquid -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Flawless Finish Foundation

As of Dec 2018- e.l.f. changed this foundation formula, and for the better. They removed the mineral oil and the SPF, which is why I could finally try it. They also added more shades. Im completely rewriting this, since the shade i tried was too light (lt ivory) for my NC 15/20 combo skin. I went back and repurchased Vanilla and its a spot on match for my strong yellow undertones and light skin!!! For shades, this one gets a five, its so weird for me to try a foundation that doesnt have pink in it!!! Vanilla is the light shade for yellow light, and light ivory would be good for fair with yellow. That shade was too light for me.

Applied with damp sponge and wasnt getting the coverage i needed, mostly because i had mixed some of my moisturizer in because it looked full coverage. I went back and applied more "undiluted" i guess, and was surprised at how well it thinned out on its own, and gives a satin look for sure. Very bright, fresh, and just really nice!

I applied the elf 16hr camo concealer on undereyes and spots, (lt beige) and i swear the longer this foundation sat on my skin, the nicer it looked!! I didnt even powder, it looked so fresh! There is still a slight scent to the foundation but its now at the very bottom of the ingredients list, which may help. Im sensitive to scents and can still smell it after application but for the $6 and with a pump and a great undertone match, I'm impressed!!! Since this is glycerin based (which helps the satin finish) and has no talc, I'm a bit weary of how shiny I might get during a full workday, so will see if it holds up.

Honestly this product does nothing for me. Sure, the first minutes after applying it, it makes the face slightly dewy and less powdery. But even this effect is not long-lasting. It doesn't extend the wear time of the makeup either. Basically, it has no added value to my makeup so I won't be using it anymore.
The price is very low though so can't complain about that. the packaging is basic and practical.

Excellent subtle and build able blush. Great dupe for NARS Orgasim. Unfortunately it’s hard to find. Perhaps it’s discontinued.
