Scrubs -e.l.f. -Gentle Peeling Exfoliant

on 4/27/2018 12:31:00 PM

Yes, this really is a dupe for the much higher priced Peter Thomas Roth Firmx peeling gel. I really like the results from the PTR Firmx gel so am excited to find this product at a much lower price. This is a much gentler way to exfoliate skin compared to chemical peels and granular exfoliants. This peel gel is easy to use. Apply to clean, dry face and massage in a circular motion. The product will ball up and take your dead surface skin cells with it. Love it. My face feels so soft and smooth afterwards.

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Fluffy Eye Blender Brush

foto

This is their absolute best blending brush, the bristles are sooo gentle and soft on my eyes.
I personally like it much better than the regular blending brush and crease brush.

The Fluffy Eye Blending brush is quite similar to the MAC 217, elf fluffy brush has longer bristles and the density if the two are very close. Dupes are usually never 100% the same but we can be happy and carry on. :)

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

Didn't like this foundation. Just after 2 hours or so it looked cakey on my face and it doesn't cover well. The shade is ok. I don't like the consistency and the smell. Could be because of the spf15 but I would never again buy this.

Lip Treatments -e.l.f. -Lip Kiss Balm: Berry Sweet

on 4/22/2018 11:47:00 AM

This is very pigmented for a lip balm, like the level of a sheer lipstick. This shade is more red than berry though, and is pretty bright. It is not very shiny. The texture is kinda like a thicker waxy balm. It does not wear evenly, and leaves colour around the outside of your mouth. I do not recommend these.

Brows -e.l.f. -Eyebrow Kit

$3.00

The instructions say to use the wax first. I've tried it both ways. The wax is not really like a wax, more like a cream. It is kind of greasy and does not last in the heat of Florida. The wax applies lighter than it looks in the but the powder applies darker. I have it in light and the color is ok but a little too dark. I find it hard to work with and it smears easily. For the price, if you can find the right color and have great brows with no sparse areas, it might satisfy you.

The brush is awful, I use other brushes with it. I really doubt I will hit pan on this because I really don't find it easy to use and the color is not that flattering, too dark and not the right shade. I gave it 3 lippies because it is affordable but I would not repurchase it. I like ABH or Milani pomade. Both have colors that are much better for me. I used to use Vincent Longo Bi-powder pomade in blonde and it was perfection but for some reason the blonde is no longer available.

Highlighters -e.l.f. -Cosmetics Baked Highlighter

foto

This is one of my favorite highlighters that I've used. I scrapped off the top layer and I used it on my cheek bones, the tip of my nose, the space between my brows, and on my Cupid's bow. This wears all day and was worth the $4 I paid for it, it looks wonderful on my light skin tone.

very good quality with affordable price , i have medium brown , the color is natural and the wax isnt hard
the brush is not the best you can use but its ok for the price
if you have thick brows the powder is enough for a natural look or use both powder and wax for more defined look

elf had two mascaras in white tubes one was $1 & other $2 they were great especially the dollar one & lasted so long now they switched mascaras in black tubes & they are the worst apparently I am not the only one I have seen a lot of bad reviews on them they are just horrible clumpy & flaky terrible I thought I found the perfect mascara now I have to search again & I am sure I wont find a $1 mascara that great that's how I feel anyway why do companies always do that when they have a good product change it how anybody could approve those new types is beyond me probably a man or someone who doesn't even wear makeup hope they bring them back glad I bought an extra .

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

I have a good feeling about the Elf brand because it's cruelty free and the prices are cheap. Unfortunately, I haven't had much luck with the line so far, but this brow pencil is one of their best products. There are some high end pencils I prefer, such as Anastasia Brow Wiz and the MAC Eye Brows pencil, but they are expensive. Elf's pencil does the job and you probably have enough spare change in your coin purse right now to cover the cost.

Packaging:

A sturdy white plastic case with lids that don't fall off easily. A spoolie on one end and a fully retractable pencil on the other. One cap is clear to help you remember which end is which. The lead is a little thicker than Anastasia Brow Wiz, but not as thick as the Hourglass brow pencil.

Staying Power:

Very good, although it is not perfect. I have noticed that it can smudge or rub off in places if I scratch my face. Otherwise, it lasts all day.

Color:

Taupe is a nice shade that works with my blonde hair but it's warmer than my ideal match which is the color Fling in MAC's brow pencils. If you are a cool blonde and you need an ash pencil, you're out of luck. Elf's color selection could be improved. Currently there are only three shades.

Price:

Only $2. Absolutely worth it if there is a color that matches you and you don't need the skinniest lead.

Cruelty free & Vegan

Ingredients:

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyethylene, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Microcrystalline Wax (Cera Microcristallina), Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Ozokerite, Mica, Silica, Tocopheryl Acetate (Ve), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol

Loose Powders -e.l.f. -Beauty Shield Setting Powder in Sheer Golden

on 4/19/2018 3:33:00 PM

This is like a tinted version of an HD Silica powder. Thats how it looks and feels. The color is nice on my NC 42 skin tone, quite brightening with its sheer to light coverage and light yellow color, BUT it looks somewhat chalky and dry.

It sets my concealer without grossly emphasizing fine lines and it's great with oil control. It also has a blurring effect. But again, I think it looks too dry which makes it detectable. I prefer Maybelline shine free loose powder to set my concealer.

The packaging is cute and functional with a twisting sifter. It also has Licorice Extract and Vitamin E in there, that's part of the Beauty Shield marketing angle.

Its ok but there are better options at the drugstore.

Eyeliner -e.l.f. -Liquid Eyeliner - Black

on 4/19/2018 8:28:00 AM

foto

This has to be the worst eyeliner I have ever used. I picked this product up for $2 USD since I didn't have a lot of money at the time. Let me tell you- this was a waste! The applicator is a brush instead of a felt tip which makes it difficult to apply. The formula itself is an atrocity: applying another layer removes the one you previously applied! It also disappears if you touch it and it flakes easily. The color of this product is not a true black. Instead it is more of a dark grey.

Even for $2,this product it isn't worth it.

I got this stuff free with my purchase. I've been using the same mascara for about 10 years and never try any others. But, when I received it I gave it a try. Wow. Not bad at all! It's super cheap so I'll definitely be ordering more. And, it's cruelty free, unlike my usual mascara. Score!

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Studio Angled Eyeliner brush

on 4/18/2018 9:32:00 AM

foto

I made my own angled brush by bending an old Gwp NARS brush that I had lying around. It made application of my liquid liner so much easier but one day the part that I bent snapped off. I decided to treat myself to an already-made brush.

I think this works fine with gel eyeliner. But, with my extremely oily lids, mac Liquidlast and milani infinite liquid liners are the only thing that don't end up sliding off my face, so I really needed this brush for liquid. And for that, this brush pretty much sucks.

I can't seem to get the right amount of product into the brush. I might get like a dot of product on my face at a time and then when I start moving the brush around, the bristles will start erasing and dulling what I just did. It is good at depositing globs of liner, or eating up your product so you end up with some streaky light gray fade marks. As far as drawing on a nice black cat eye - it's not happening.

I have taped back together my makeshift NARS brush until I find something decent.

3 stars just because it is fine for gel.

Love this blush, it’s a coral with shimmery gold that livens up my face. There is a lot of small shimmer but I like it, when I use this I usually don’t need to use a highlighter. Repurchased after I used my first one up, and bought one for my friend too, who loves it and always uses mine.

Eye Shadow -e.l.f. -Clay Eye Shadow Palette Nearly Nudes

foto

Good: Very easy to blend, ELF isn't lying when they say this is silky-smooth. Might be a good choice for a young girl just learning to use makeup. The package closes tight and the mirror is really big, which helps with even application.
Bad: The highlight shade was really crumbly and got everywhere (I ordered this online so maybe it was old?). The other colors have less pigment than I expect even from a "nude" shade. I'd keep it as a backup in case I lost or broke my main one, but I like Revlon's nude shadows better.
