Misc Beauty Tools -e.l.f. - Pore Refining Brush Mask Tool

This works well for spreading any type of mask on but is especially good for the peel off kind that tend to be sort of elastic and stick to your fingers as well as your face. I can get a nice even layer so it dries uniformly which makes the mask easy to peel off once dry. Washing the applicator is simple, the silicone cleans quickly unlike if you use a flat brush to apply your masks - all the product adheres to the brush hairs and I’ve actually ruined brushes before this way. The opposite end of this tool has a very soft, small round brush which can be used for various options like concentrated cleaning or even buffing in concealer. I am really happy with this gadget, recommend it to anyone that applies masks on a regular basis - it will make your life easier.

Concealers -e.l.f. -Tone Correcting Concealer

I have a few minimal light blemishes/under eye circles so this fits my needs esp for $2 so I got 2....1 for my bag but LA Colors is much better $1 Dollar Tree. This works as an eyelid primer too I got Light Beige it’s a good match for NC20-25 which is good bcoz the store didn’t have any other colors. I’m going to say cautiously #winning if you don’t have anything major to cover up just want to even things out, LA Colors is better if u have access to a dollar store 1/2 price & better product

This is amazing! I’m looking for a back up in my travels in elf displays so far no luck! It heals them fast imo better than Clinique’s salicylic med that stuff stings too & it’s hard not to waste it once u get down near the end of the tube like stated in another review you do have to squeeze hard!! I will rebuy this is a neat little thing I get one blemish at a time normally so I’m not using it on large areas of my face. #YEStorebuy #winning #itworks

Cleansers -e.l.f. -Hydrating Gel Melt Cleanser

on 2/23/2018 4:26:00 PM

This is a relatively stiff gel (bordering on solid) that contains nourishing oils and is meant to be massaged onto dry skin. Once you have worked it in, add a small amount of water to activate this into a milky texture that continues to cleanse your skin. The first time I used this, it didn’t do a great job of breaking down my makeup but I didn’t use very much. I would say you need at least twice as much as Clinique Take the Day Off or The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter to have this work well. It works even better if you use either a silicone scrubbing pad or a cleansing brush to help this remove makeup. I love e.l.f products but for the price, this one falls short for me. You just have to use too much and there isn’t much in the package so it doesn’t last long. If they make a larger tub or reduce the price I would purchase it again. But for now, I won’t be repurchasing anytime soon.

Toners -e.l.f. -Hydrating Water Essence

A great alcohol-free toner/essence! It contains coconut water, glycerin, niacinamide, and coffee extract to name just a few amazing ingredients for the skin. This feels lovely and dries without a sticky finish. The packaging is beautiful for such an inexpensive price. It comes in a frosted glass bottle and looks very nice on my vanity. I much prefer this over many other more expensive ones I’ve tried. The fact that e.l.f is cruelty-free only makes this an even more appealing option. I only wish this was available in Canada because I know I will be repurchasing it many more times.

Makeup Brushes -e.l.f. -Highlighter brush

I had such high hopes for this brush and it took me months to get my hands on it. Never able to find it anywhere in Canada so I included it in my Ulta order - yay for shipping to Canada! This brush was so much denser than I thought it would be, kind of disappointing really. It works better as an under eye setting brush but for highligh, it’s not one I would tell you to run out and get.

Concealers -e.l.f. -Cover Everything Concealer

I am almost out of my beloved Benefit Lemon-Aid and sort of desperate to find a dupe at any price. I saw a lot of people online claim this was it, so I thought at $2 it was worth trying. The reviews here should have warned me, but you know when you are sure you can make a product work despite it sucking? That's this.

I tried it under foundation, over primer, without primer, on bare skin, over foundation, under concealer, nothing worked. Since I find Lemon-Aid is great at making metallic formulas stick and was my whole point in getting this, I thought at least this might hold it on the center of my lid. Nope. Total strike out but I'm not broken considering the price.

Misc Beauty Tools -e.l.f. -Studio Makeup Mist & Set Spray

on 2/21/2018 5:34:00 PM

I'm VERY disappointed in this product! I spent $8 (US) on a very small bottle. Used it for 3 days, just for it to burn my skin! My face is covered in burns and blisters. On my nose, under my eyes, my lips, chin, forehead. I've been to the emergency room for it causing my face to feel like it's melting. I can't open my mouth, blink my eyes, even lay my face on my pillow at night because of the product. I've bought a lot of elf products to use. I love them all, but this situation has caused me not to trust any of their other products again.

My kid absconded with mine so I got one of these for $2.00 at target.
Firm bristles and so far no shedding.

Nice find - and essential.
And if my kid steals it I can get another easily - and it won't break me.

Lip Gloss -e.l.f. -Lip Plumping Gloss - Champagne Glam

on 2/20/2018 2:11:00 PM

This was on my ELF wishlist online for ages when it first came out - and was happy to see that my local Target had it in-store! I grabbed Champagne Glam and it's beautiful. Some would probably be unhappy because it's very clear - but it has a bit of a nude/pale frost to it and lots of shimmer/sparkle and shine. It dulls down my pink lips (white nude color) and I love that. It is a bit THICK for my liking, it's a thick gloss, which can make it sticky on your lips. I also found that if I apply one thick swipe, it will clump in the middle of my lips or stick together, so one faint swipe is all you need. But I love the color. The scent is the same as their Lip Lacquers (vanilla) which is fine, but tends to get old.

I found NO burning whatsoever because it's a plumping gloss. A lot of folks on ELF were complaining of burning - and I had NONE. I've used/have the Buxom lip glosses - those burn and turn my lips red, no matter what color I try. This product does not, and I have sensitive lips. So i'd use this over the $20 Buxom glosses hands-down. And for $5 -- it's a large tube with a great applicator. Saw the other colors, but I like nude, clear glosses best.

Eye Makeup Remover -e.l.f. -Makeup Remover Pen

A genius product in theory. For years I've been dipping q-tips in eye makeup remover to fix mascara transfer on a daily basis...DAILY! I can NEVER manage to not get at least one speck of mascara on my eyelid. A pen makes removing mistakes quicker and more convenient. Saw this for about $3 and thought I had scored. However. I bought this product twice this year.. the first time it was completely dried out from the moment I pulled it out of the package. Useless. Thinking it was a fluke and I got a dud I bought it again. ALMOST completely dried out. I still tried to use it but most days I just reach for my trusty q-tips. I was inspired to write this review because today I bought a similar product from Hard Candy called Oopsy-Proof Makeup Eraser which I'm hoping will be a lot better and NOT already dried out. Plus the HC one appears to have a much finer tip which is nice. One of the things I hate about using q-tips on the lid to fix mascara is that sometimes it removes my eyeshadow as well. The ELF eraser pen has a thicker marker style tip which could apply too much remover to the lid and you may have to redo your shadow (if yours is not already dried out like mine!). So...yeah...looking forward to trying out the HC version even though it cost a few dollars more...

Lipstick -e.l.f. -Moisturizing Lipstick - Ravishing Rose

i gave this 4 stars for pricing because even at $3, this was overpriced junk. e.l.f. proves that you get what you pay for! shoddy application, sweet smell and taste (ugh!), flat one-dimensional colors. nobody over 18 should waste their money on these lipsticks. spend a little more and get gabriel/zuzu -- those are worth it! i bought these in ravishing rose and wine tour. the rose was like a tacky coral and the wine was just basic kool aid purple. never again.


Moisturizers -e.l.f. -Daily Hydration Moisturizer

on 2/17/2018 10:41:00 AM

This moisturizer isn't bad, it just doesn't suit my needs. I have normal-dry skin and I would like more moisture. If I wasn't using this with the Elf hydrating essence, I don't think it would give me enough hydration. I find this similar to neutrogena's water boost moisturizer. Both have a gel-cream texture. Elf has a slight scent. I can't place what it smells like, but it is not irritating or offensive. It pumps out a small amount of product. I use half a pump around my eyes and 3 pumps to cover my face and neck. You do get a lot of product, so i think this could last me 2 1/2 to 3 months. I think combo-oily skin would like it best. It plumps skin and adds hydration without being too nourishing. Overall, a good product, but not for me. I will finish the bottle and not repurchase. I prefer my Yes To Cucumbers moisturizer.
