Foundations -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Cosmetics Acne Fighting Foundation

on 6/19/2018 11:52:00 AM


ETA: just one day of wearing this foundation -- i came home to wash my face and find new breakouts (this was only new product) and my face was more inflamed/red/splotchy so I will not use again. May be the salicylic acid. Plan to either return or donate.

This is not bad for $6 if you can find your shade.

TL;DR; - This foundation is a good option for folks who want light coverage, if used with a damp sponge. Shade range is iffy. The shade Buff gives my NC15-20 skin a My-Skin-But-A-Little-Better look - with just very light coverage and no oil control for my skin (even with primer).

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


Such a good product for the price. Easy to blend and build, my first Elf product and I couldn’t have been more pleased. The range of colours are nice too though the darker bottom pinks I tend to go for the most. I sometimes use the top right blush to shape and warm up my face as I’m fair. The packaging I don’t mind at all, very sleek. Love.

Brows -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Instant Lift Brow Pencil

on 6/17/2018 1:02:00 AM


Cheap and doesn’t pull red. I wear the neutral brown. Bummer is the point goes away after two uses. It’s soft. Oh well. It still works if you don’t draw super sharp brows. Stays on decently too !

Brows -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Instant Lift Brow Pencil

on 6/16/2018 6:18:00 PM


Listen y'all. This thing is $2! Two dollars!! I know this ain't no Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade but it's better than having no brows on yah face. From the e.l.f. site you can get 3 for $5. Helloo what are you waiting for? This gives you the perfect natural brows. You can fill in your brows with this and if you make a mistake just wipe it away. Yeah that nice tip goes away so what.. You know you're not trying to draw no 90's brows. The only thing about this is that the clear cap tends to fall off easily and gets lost in Neverland, but the white cap stays on. The only downside is the spoolie gets dirty and you might get breakouts in your brows if you don't keep the spoolie clean. Light strokes is the key here! If you've found yourself with a harsh line just spoolie it out~ you really can't go wrong with this product.

Foundations -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Cosmetics Acne Fighting Foundation

on 6/16/2018 3:19:00 PM


My new fave! So inexpensive. Coverage is full and covers up mostly all of my redness and angry acne. If my skin is extra bad, I just conceal first and the coverage is still great! I love the consistency, it is a liquid, however it's denser, and creamy. I use it with a not so awesome foundation brush but prefer the coverage I get with that over a beauty blender. A little goes a long way! My acne is hormonal so I don't see it helping any as far as the claims go, but out of all the foundations I've spent hundreds of dollars on, this is hands down best coverage and consistency! Looks lovely when set with a powder before applying blush or bronzer. I hope that elf makes more shades for others!!

Misc Beauty Tools -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Dual Sided Silicone Blender

on 6/14/2018 5:46:00 PM

First - I will be ordering another Dual Sided Silicone Blender because one is not enough.

Instructions / directions: Apply half of your usual amount of liquid product directly to silicone blender. Gently swipe product across the face, then bounce the silicone blender to even out the application. Use the flat side to buff to perfection.

Follow the directions.

I used too much product on blender or the normal amount I use daily. I did this three days in a row. Which required a "do-over", three days in a row. Seriously, follow the directions.

e.l.f. silicone blender works and does not suck up foundation like a sponge. The silicone side is a smooth applicator and the reverse flocked side leaves your makeup application perfect.

Keep in mind, I didn't use any powder on my face. I used a cream blush as highlighter.

Lip Gloss -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Lip Plumping Gloss

on 6/12/2018 4:49:00 PM

I have this in Sparkling Rose, and it's...fine. The tube is enormous, for some reason. But I like the clear application wand, makes it seem a little more high-end.

As far as the gloss goes, I can't see or feel any plumping going on. But what disappointed me is that there's no sparkle in this "Sparkling Rose" gloss. Just a poorly-named product? Victim of e.l.f.'s product inconsistency? Who knows. The color is a pale, milky pink. I usually sheer it out enough that the color is little more than a suggestion.

Otherwise, it works fine as a lip gloss. But it's like $6 at CVS and they have Revlon lip glosses for a couple dollars more. I would rather have had one of those.

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

Excellent primer—very moisturizing. My only complaint is that it runs out so quickly, even when you use it sparingly.

Love the blemish control primer, but this formula is too oily.

Eye Shadow -e.l.f. Cosmetics -e.l.f. Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palette

on 6/11/2018 10:56:00 PM


I love elf’s individual baked eyeshadows so I bought this thinking it would be the same formula. It’s not. Dry glitter with very little pigment is what these palettes are.

Eye Shadow -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Baked Eyeshadow-ALL

on 6/11/2018 10:35:00 PM


This is my favorite, reliable go-to eyeshadow when other eyeshadows let me down. I have it in “bark” (rich, medium brown). Shimmery without being chock full of glitter. Very pigmented.

**However, while the individual baked shadows are wonderful, the larger 12-shade palettes were poor quality—too much glitter/very little pigment.

I dont know what everybody is raving about. This stuff dries the hell outta your lid and looks cakey as shit. And I have OILY lids! I go for Wet n wild's Photo Focus Eyeshadow Primer, cheap, does it work for oily lids.

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

on 6/8/2018 10:22:00 PM


I bought this product after watching a makeup tutorial. I have never used primer before and thought it might help adding to my routine. At first this was awesome, I loved the way it glided on and it made my makeup just beautiful. Then I started noticing my face started itching. Ok, I thought it was because of the weather or something else. Then the other day, i noticed it feeling itchy right after putting it on. I thank God, havent broken out but now my cheeks are very dry and itchy. I am going with out makeup for a few days to see if it clears up since I get married in 7 days and am terrified of my face looking like a wreck. I wont use this again, I think the tea tree oil is too much for my skin.

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Beautifully Precise Swirl Foundation Brush

on 6/8/2018 9:38:00 PM


I generally love e.l.f. products but this brush was a big disappointment. Doesn't glide well, very stiff and only does small areas at a time. Soaks up product and the worst thing is that I cannot. get. it. clean. Even multiple attempts with hypoallergenic dish soap (which works great on my other brushes) cannot get the foundation out of this brush. Do not recommend.

Mascara -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Waterproof Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara

on 6/8/2018 1:48:00 PM


What. The. Hell.

So I stopped by CVS in need of a waterproof mascara so I can have fun in the water and have eyelashes too. I just wanted something cheap because I'm not a waterproof girl in general. What could be cheaper than $3 elf? So I put down my Maybelline Full n Soft waterproof and happily made my purchase.

The packaging is super basic but kind of sexy. Just shiny black. The wand is short and fluffy in the center. It took me a moment to get used to it but I soon discovered it was a great wand for getting every single hair coated and the formula was light with zero clumps.

I stood back and admired my lashes, prepared to give a positive review for a nice cheap mascara and them BAM! My eyelashes got stuck together.

It was the outer corners, so I fixed it thinking it was a fluke.....until i realized every timeI blinked my lashes stuck. I touched them, they were tacky. WUT.

I actually powdered my damn lashes so they'd stop sticking. And in doing so I realized they were very flexible and tacky, so the curl got bet out.

So help me if this doesn't end up being waterproof on top of this offense I'm going to come back and rate it 1.
