Lipstick -E.L.F. -Studio Matte Lip Color

Review for Hot Commodity.

This is a beautiful coral shade and I love the narrow tip for doing the outside edges of lips.

This isn't matte though. It's a cream and slippery enough for the white base to settle into ALL my lip creases and slip off the middle of my lips when I press them together. When I smile all the whitish creases show up.

Yuck.

Destashing and definitely not repurchasing.


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

I must be on my 6th compact of this! I adore this powder. I use a big fluffy brush with loose bristles (not dense) and sweep quite a bit of it all over my face every day I wear makeup, which is usually 6 days a week, and I usually get at least 2 and a half months out of a compact. It never gives me flashback, even in professional photos, and I keep thinking I've been airbrushed when I see myself in pictures! This keeps my makeup looking nice in real life too, and with ELF poreless primer and some NYX spray on top patted in with the fluffy brush I can do a beep test and still come out looking lovely! Just never ever use a sponge or puff to apply. Otherwise, this stuff is great!

TLDR: Cheap, even in Nowhere, Canada, helps makeup last, doesn't break me out, makes you look great in pictures, only apply with a brush.

I just finished using this entire pencil. It lasted about 5 months for me using it everyday. It's a great pencil! Glides on very smoothly and easily. Stays on ALL day long with no smudging.

Eye Shadow -E.L.F. -Clay Eye Shadow Palette Nearly Nudes

foto

I'm never very impressed with E.L.F products, but I was late night browsing through the drugstore looking for a decent nude palette and came across this and was intrigued by the clay formula. I've always liked Tarte's amazonian clay powders for their staying power, so I figured why the hell not, it's not much money. I'm honestly blown away by how good this palette is! The powders are silky smooth, no fallout, they blend beautifully, and they last on my lids all day, even without a lid primer, and the packaging although made of plastic, is fairly solid. I use the 2 darkest shades in my crease area, and it blends like a dream, like I usually only get with higher end eye shadows. Highly recommend it.

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

This is a lovely highlighter for everyday. I have Blushed Gems. And as this product is notoriously known for scraping the top layer off to get to the product, it's actually worth it in my opinion. If you don't mind the fuss, this is good for work or lighter makeup days and even safe for a light dusting all over the face. You'll be disappointed if you expect a beaming glow that lasts all day.

Brows -E.L.F. -Eyebrow Kit

Anyone who watches Thataylaa on YouTube would know how great this product is.... as a contour for fair-skinned faces rather than eyebrow product! I couldn’t agree more. The gel side is irrelevant to me, but the powder is sensational. It’s perfect as a neutral cool-toned contour without any hint of warmth (I use the RT setting brush for this). It works super well as an eyeshadow, in the crease and/or the entire lid - quick, easy & most importantly, effective. A great product.

Just cheap. Compact broke after a week. I used powder up in a very short time and it was breaking up at the end too. I love many ELF products but got no joy out of this one.


Palettes -E.L.F. -California

This was one of my first ELF purchases. I am usually drawn to earthy golden/bronzey/brown toned eyeshadows and I could not resist.

Well the good thing is if you are like me you like the earthy colors then this palette won't disappoint you...too much. Can you get a pretty everyday look out of this? Absolutely. But there are just way too many similar colors and I feel like every time I use this palette I ended up looking the same.

Secondly, the pigmentation could do much better. I have no problem with this though becuase I actually prefer to apply eyeshadows with my fingers but I know many people prefer brushes, and I feel like if that's the case you won't enjoy this. Although I have to say I used to own many Chanel baked eyeshadow quads and their pigmentation was even worse so good job there ELF.

In conclusion, this palette is just a big MEH for me. I won't be purchasing it again.

This is one of my favorite brushes that I own! I love it for setting my undereye and sweeping away bake. I got mine for $3, and I don't regret it one bit!

Primer/ Corrector -E.L.F. -Aqua Beauty Primer Mist

on 10/1/2017 5:38:00 AM

Edited: I took off a lippie after realizing this is only 1 oz of product. The bottle leads one to believe there'd be 4 to 6 oz worth. Not a good surprise and now the price per oz seems ridiculous. I still really like the formula
---
This product is definitely not what one would expect. Regardless it's turned out to be useful for me.

First of all, ELF Aqua Beauty Primer Mist is more of a skincare product than a traditional liquid make up primer. There is no velvet-y silicone finish or pore minimizing properties. I'd say it's closest to being a toner. The ingredients are on par, and it dries down to nothing. You would think it's just water. Dry skinned gals should probably skip this one if a hydrating formula is needed.

Now... I like ELF Aqua Beauty Primer Mist because it plays nicely with my foundation. I use it to sheer out a very heavy/matte/full coverage formula. Since the "primer" dries down to nothing, it doesn't mess with the finish. Sometimes mixing a primer in will just cause foundation to get greasy fast. Not with this one. I just end up with a much more natural looking result.

There were a few ingredients that originally concerned me, such as the niacinamide and tocopheryl acetate (vitamin e). Both definitely have their place in skincare. But I am acne prone, and they typically break me out. However this surprisingly hasn't caused any break outs. Which leads me to believe the content of the two ingredients is quite low, especially since it's able to dry down to nothing. Vitamin e typically will not fully set/dry. If anything my skin actually really likes the formula. I noticed my rosacea is less apparent when I go to remove my make up at night.

One big flaw is the packaging. The mister makes it useless for applying directly to your face. Instead of spraying a fine mist, it comes out like a squirt gun. Since I've been mixing this into my foundation lately, that doesn't matter to me. But for most people - I imagine this is a big con. You can't use it to set or refresh your make up without getting your face drenched in concentrated areas.

I will repurchase.

Brows -E.L.F. -Lock On Liner and Brow Cream

I found this brow cream at TJ Maxx for two dollars and thought I'd try it out. I'm constantly on the quest to find a good product for my brows because I have yet to find one that works just right for me.
I was pleasantly surprised by this product. First, I am so glad I went with light brown. I have ashy-medium brown brows in color- no red tones. I was trying to decide between light and medium brown. Light brown was the perfect color and surprisingly dark! It was perfect.

I was able to fill in and shape my brows, and they looked the best they've looked in a while! I used a Sonia Kashuk angled brow brush and just a little bit of product. It lasted all day!
The color options aren't very diverse, but if you match the shades they have, it works great!

I enjoy the way it looks initially, very natural, but it clumps up and smudges incredibly easily. Flakes throughout the day too :(


Lipstick -E.L.F. -Beautifully Bare Satin Lipstick

I don't give many 5 lippie ratings. This one is specifically for the shade "Touch of Blush." I'm job hunting, and this turns out to be the PERFECT shade for that; a lipstick that's slightly matte, but not really. Very comfortable to wear, and if you don't eat or drink (drinking water didn't bother it) it lasts for a few hours. On me, this color is a berryish pink, a "dark MLBB." If I'm wearing somewhere other than a job interview, I like to throw on a slick of Baby Lips Lilac Lumi gloss, gives it a bit more glow. I don't like "real" matte lipsticks, and this one is just fine. Note that I'm fair (NW15-20), neutral leaning cool. While this lippie is more expensive than some elf lippies, it's well worth it.

I also have "Touch of Berry"; I've worn that only a couple times, will probably use more now that fall's here. It's definitely darker than Blush and a very nice berry shade.


NOTE: Not sure why this product is called "Beautifully Bare," gives the impression it's a light textured/low color product, but that's misleading.
