Eye Primer -E.L.F. -Essential Eyelid Primer - Sheer

I wish this worked better because I love the applicator and the price. But at the end of the day, this does not do anything you would expect an eye primer to do. My shadow was still faded and creased.

Eye Shadow -E.L.F. -Beautifully Bare Smooth Matte Eyeshadow

I bought this shade in Nude Linen in the spring and lived in it all summer long. My eyelids tend to eat makeup, but this stays put, doesn't crease and doesn't feel heavy. It works as a good base color on its own or as part of a multi shadow eye.

Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. -cleansing duo face brush

on 10/26/2017 8:41:00 AM

I llove ve this brush...the bristles are nice and soft which works well with my gentle foaming cleanser.

I'm not a fan off those overrated and expensive cleansing brushes and I'm kicking myself for purchasing the useless Foreo Luna ...instead of 6 of these.

I can see this being a repeat purchase for me.

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

foto

This primer isn't great, but isn't bad. It's my daily use primer just because it's cheaper but it really isn't all that. The packing is plain and boring which isn't a big deal but I definitely think they could put some effort into making it look a little more appealing. The product itself, it's alright. It's pretty thick and when I use it I have to kind of use a lot because, a little bit of product won't spread evenly across my face. Which brings me to my next point, The fact that you have to use a lot for it to be even is a big downer because there's not that much product in the bottle so after a few uses it'll be empty. The plus side is when it's on the face it feels nice and smooth and does what it needs to. It primes your face and foundation goes on nicely, but like I said in the beginning of the review it's alright. I'll keep buying it because it's not expensive and gets the job done but this is not anything special at all.

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

on 10/24/2017 3:41:00 PM

This is a great highlighter, but as many people have recommended, I had to scrape the top layer off to allow my brushes to pick up the pigments. But for such a beautiful highlight at such an affordable price, I definitely didn't mind doing this! Just try it out, it's just as good as my Mary Louminizer but far more affordable

Foundations -E.L.F. -Studio HD Mattifying Cream Foundation

on 10/23/2017 5:35:00 PM

Very good coverage with this one. Might be a dupe for the Cover Fx Cream Foundation. A tad greasy like others have mentioned. Not mattifying at all. However if you set this with a powder it can stay matte. I buff this in with a real techniques expert face brush and then pounce a damp beauty sponge just to make sure there are no brush streaks. It wears well but can accentuate lines if you have any. Overall, I'd buy again.


Powders -E.L.F. -Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder -Fiji (Matte)

on 10/23/2017 5:26:00 PM

I really like this matte blush & bronzer duo! They are both pigmented enough to show nicely on light to medium skin tones. The blush sheers out very easily, or can be layered up to be more vibrant. The blush color is a gorgeous bright, cool toned pink but blends out to just look like a cheek flush or stain as opposed to a clown color, so don't let the fact that it looks super bright in the case scare you. It's more of a cream-to-powder duo rather than a straight powder. It also has great staying power and doesn't fade much throughout the day. And, of course the price can't be beat! I will definitely repurchase!!

Contour -E.L.F. -Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

on 10/23/2017 4:59:00 PM

I bought this in the color Bronzed Pink Beige (or Fiji). The blush color is a bright blue based pink, and the bronzer is a light to medium cool toned brown. Perfect for my light olive skin. The texture is more of a cream to powder, rather than a straight powder. Very pigmented, and great staying power. Works best if applied with fingertips and rubbed in, rather than applying with a brush. I originally tried applying this with a brush, and it would kind of tug on the brush bristles and made them fall out easier. I then started applying it with my fingers and it went on much better!
The blush color as well as the bronzer color are spot-on and gorgeous!

Lips -E.L.F. -Essential Ex-tra Lip Gloss

I have these lipglosses in the shades "Bright Pink" (which is obviously a bright pink, duh?), "Natural" (which is over course, Nude.) and "Deep" (which is a deep wine color). I get them from the dollar tree ($1), and target ($2). Y'all, these glosses are POPPIN! And for this price, what is there really to complain about? Super glossy, long lasting, highly pigmented, I mean, THANK YOU ELF! I was booked for a wedding out of town and I lost the bright pink one, and I could be mad cause it was only $1. I just went and got more lol. Definitely worth more than a dollar. Best dollar spent. These will forever stay in my kit and in my personal makeup collection.

Eye Primer -E.L.F. -Essential Eyelid Primer - Sheer

on 10/22/2017 1:21:00 AM

I bought this, based solely on price, without having read any reviews. It was absolutely awful. First off, it did not apply sheerly, which then caused my Smashbox eyeshadow to look different on my lid and it caused alot of drag when I was applying eyeshadow. It had a rough texture once applied. I usually give 2nd chances to my products, but this was an absolute fail:(.

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

on 10/21/2017 10:15:00 PM

Love these for a natural, pretty look which lasts half the day and is easy to touchup. I have the red orange shade; love it and sometimes layer it over felt-tip lip marker stains (Kiko's are what I'm using now but many brands including e..f. make these) to slightly change or deepen the shade. I love a really natural look and this gives it! Neither hydrating nor drying. These last longer than almost any other lip product and wear off without leaving a ring or in flakes.

Eye Shadow -E.L.F. -Brightening Eye Color - Matte Mauve

on 10/21/2017 7:32:00 PM

foto

This quad was okay, not great but not 100% terrible either.
It is cheap but I can make it work and actually enjoy the look I get out of it.
I like the taupe/mauve/gray shade and the eggplant shade. There are also two pink shades, one that is almost a sheer Pepto Bismol pink and the other just a very sheer baby pink both pinks were not very mauve toned.
They also look very similar and none existent on the skin.
I use this quad in the following manner.
First I either apply a primer or more often than not just a light shadow all over the lid and crease, in a hurry, I will sometimes use the very lightest pink from this quad. I apply the taupe-ish shade in the crease and then the darker eggplant shade in the outer corner and blend it out. I also use the darker shade along the lower lashline or I will use it 2/3 of the outer lashline and then the taupe color along the inner third of the lash line.
Two to three coats of mascara and I have an inexpensive and super quick look anyone can do.
Everyone seems to like it so I guess it works and no one can ever guess it is only two shades from a $1 quad.

Pressed Powders -E.L.F. -Studio Perfect Finish HD Pressed Powder

foto

I use this and the loose version. Both are identical in performance. I have extremely oily skin but also aging skin. So, unfortunately I can't just slap on any face product and look great. I need to really find products that will keep my skin matte but not over dry it and exaggerate the fine lines I have around the eyes. I use this in the traditional way by setting my makeup. It does a fabulous job at setting makeup without looking cakey. However, I use this primarily as my face primer! It's been a battle throughout the years to find a face primer that will keep my makeup in place all day and prevent it from melting off due to my oily skin. Often times, I just gave up and went without. I can't put any type of emollient product on my face in the morning before makeup. I don't care what advisors tell me, my skin is just that oily all on it's own! I don't even wash it in the morning. I just spritz my face with a beauty facial spray and let it sink into my skin. After, I apply this powder by lightly blotting my whole face with the applicator concentrating on my forehead, nose and cheeks. After, I apply my makeup and again, apply this powder to set everything. I use a large fluffy powder brush to set it. By doing this, I get the best oil control and my skin doesn't look cakey. Makeup doesn't travel into my fine under eye lines either.

Eye Shadow -E.L.F. -Baked Eyeshadow-ALL

I have the Baked Eyeshadow Palette in 'California'. First of all, the packaging is a bit big and bulky and isn't great for traveling. I really like the color selection that gives you a nice bronzy eye, great for Autumn time. The formula isn't great. I would recommend using your fingers with this product or the E.L.F 'C' Eyeshadow Brush. Good for the price, you just have to make it work with the formula.
