This is so easy and convenient...melts into my skin and does what it says it will...I love this and the blurring one in the black tube, too.

OMG this is an awesome find...I got taupe and not a speck of red in it. Works as well as pencils costing 10x as much...not the sharpest point, but who wants to complaint about it?

Like other silicone filled primers, this started leaving red bumps on my face in a few days...so did the porefessional by Benefit and others with a lot of ‘cones...worth a try if you are not sensitive to silicones...

Primer/ Corrector -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Cosmetics Color Correcting Stick

on 8/3/2018 12:05:00 PM

I don't know why I picked this up given my distaste for stick ANYTHING. I guess I wanted to dip my toe in the color correcting market but not break the bank if I decided it wasn't for me, so at least that was a win! Unfortunately for me, this particular green is a tad bit too bold and slightly yellowish for me, but would probably work well with deeper, warmer skin tones. Hard to blend this formula, even with my fingers, and I always seem to miss spots. I won't repurchase this product but it's driven me to look elsewhere for cooler green shades.


Palettes -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Cosmetics Beautifully Bare Natural Glow Face Palette

foto

For reference, my skin is fair neutral leaning towards cool so I was surprised how much I like this. This was an impulse purchase and there wasn't an open palette at the store but it was only $8 CAD. All four shades are suited best for fair skin, I think even medium skin would have an issue with the bronzer showing. The colours are all sheer but buildable, and neither the bronzer or peach blushes pull orange on me. The highlighter is probably the only weak link as it's subtle to the point of hardly noticeable, but it does give off a bit of a glow so it's not a total dud. If used separately, you can create a nice sculpted cheek or if you're lazy you can swirls your brush and create a nice flushed look and it wears all day.

The only improvements I can think of would be to either create more of a difference between the two blushes (both are matte peach shades that look very similar) or get rid of one and make a trio, and they should create a dark palette as well like their blush and bronzer palettes.

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. Cosmetics -pointed foundation brush

foto

As of right now, this is THE foundation applicator for me. I've tried ones from Real Techniques (both the brushes and the sponge) since I've read so many good things about them but it just doesn't give me the same awesome results.

This brush is the one that has given me the most compliments from people on my skin. I use it damp along with Revlon's Colorstay foundation. I can use a light hand and give myself a skin-like fresh finish or build it up to a flawless base. I have bought this brush over and over and will definitely continue to do so. This brush doesn't last as long as I would like though -- around 3 months and then it just sheds like crazy and falls apart. It is so cheap that I don't mind getting a replacement too much. Easy to clean and the shape/size is perfect.

Eye Shadow -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Chromatic Eyeshadow Palette - Posh Peacock

foto

Great for the price!! Nice collection of colors, bit of fallout but good pigmentation. Comes with a little two-headed brush. Wish there was one more matte shade in there.

Packaging is decent quality but the palette itself is quite thick and boxy. Thought it'd be a little more compact.

Brows -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Eyebrow Kit

This is my HG brow product.
It stays on, it blends super well, and the color matches me perfectly. Even the light powder, I used to never even try it - but I used it and it works so well to naturally fill in my brows! That was really unexpected given how much more light it is compared to my brows. This also lasts for so long in my collection without drying.
I completely abandoned my Anastasia Brow Wiz for this.
My only con WAS the packaging - the glass-looking portion fell out - but they changed that! I can't think of a con anymore.

Powder -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Beautifully Bare

on 7/31/2018 6:04:00 PM

This powder really surprised me - it is very finely milled, gives a soft blurring effect and it blends very well. I even use it over a little concealer and it blurs imperfections. There’s little coverage but the finish is just so soft that it looks great on the skin. This is much better than my Too Face Primed and Poreless powder ($32!). I’m NC 30 in Mac and got the “fair/Light” and although it’s light, it goes on translucent. I may try the next shade up (light/medium) but the fair/light works well for me and then I use bronzer afterwards. A great powder for touch ups too. Just really surprised that such a good powder is this inexpensive! Definitely going to repurchase.

Eyeliner -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Cream Eyeliner - All Colors

on 7/26/2018 3:21:00 PM

The only thing I like about this liner is the price. Other than that, everything about this sucks. It dries up almost immediately after opening which means you can get it on a brush unless you jab it in and dig it out (that came out a lot dirtier sounding than I intended, w/e). then, if you have managed to get any product onto your liner brush, it will just fall off in small crumbles of disappointment. I seem to be in the minority here that doesn't like this but I'm juts giving *my* personal experience.


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

foto

Love, love, love!! Have two in Dewy Berry and Dewy Nude. Berry is more of a dark, pinky stain and Nude is actually orangey-red. They can both be quite sheer with one wash or built up for more color after 2-3 layers. I use both as easily blendable cheek stains as well. I can't feel this lip stain at all and, if applied to dry lips, will truly stain - make sure to blot off lip balm before use so there's no transfer. It's also not drying and doesn't make my lips peel. I also like using this stain for the Korean ombre lip look, and at $4 it's an extremely cheap alternative to KBeauty or other stains. The packaging has cracked down the side on one of my tubes on the applicator end, but it hasn't affected the usability or caused any leaks. The only thing I will say is that it has a bit of a bitter taste when wet, so make sure it dries down fully before doing anything.

It made me break out! I’m talking crazy acne for months! I just recently looked at the ingredients, and they have acne causing ingredients in it! Who knew?! So it’s currently in the trash. Here I thought it was something that helpedme


Contour -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Contour Palette

on 7/19/2018 6:43:00 PM

The powders in this palette are soft and feel far more luxurious than the price I paid for them. If not for e.l.f. logo, one could easily mistake this palette for a high end product.  Although I'm a brown girl, my skin is on the lighter side of the spectrum so I opted to get the Light palette because the contour and bronzer colours seemed dark enough and I wasn't wrong! They show up on my skin beautifully and blend like a dream.  Meanwhile, I use the lighter matte powder to set my concealer/foundation and I find myself reaching for the highlighter shade often as well. This surprises me because the shade is very white so I assumed it would look chalky on me. On the contrary, this shade has a nice shimmer to it and blends right into the tops of my cheeks with a highlighter brush I got in the Tarte Holiday brush set.  All in all, this is one of my favourite e.l.f. purchases ever and I will definitely rebuy.
