Great product for the price. I haven't tried a lot of blushes because I tend to have a natural flush thanks to Florida's hot weather lol so I can't compare much to other brands but it seems pretty pigmented, buildable, and has good staying power.

Tools -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Slant Tweezer

I lost my tweezers and was looking for a replacement, but was not wanting to spend loads on a pair of Tweezermans and Revlon Tweezers were all out of stock or expensive once postage added. After looking around for another option I saw Emily Noel’s recommendation and thought I would give them a shot. Unfortunately for me these are not good at all, they feel clunky and difficult to close, don’t grasp the hair very well and feels like it’s tearing rather that plucking hair out! These are much worse than my old cheap $2 pair that I lost. In fact it’s has made me miss those!

I trust Emily’s reviews but I’m wondering if the ones we get in Australia are different form the US ones or if the quality just hit and miss overall with these tweezers.

Oh well, time for tweezer shopping again.


BB Cream -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Studio BB Cream SPF 20

I saw lisalisaD1 do a video with this [NB the one I'm reviewing has a flip top cap tube packaging so I'm not sure if it's the same one? This is the current elf bb cream spf20] so when I happened to see it at tkmaxx I grabbed it in Fair. I was sure it'd be too dark and probably not great, but it was £2.99 so worth a shot.

As soon as I tried it I gasped: this was everything I wanted Estée Lauder doublewear light to be! This feels very high end: great soft coverage and beautiful skin like finish. I have oily skin so I powder t zone after. I wear this in the winter as my skin gets dry from central heating. I wear Estée Lauder doublewear in the summer for its oil control. They also layer very well together. It gives a dewy finish and it doesn't transfer at all! Nor does it collect in lines or around the nose. And it lasts for hours.

I'm actually very snobby about makeup and usually everything from drugstore ends up in the bin after one use. But I bought another 5 of these plus some other items and it really is incredible value!!! And I don't notice a strong scent, I think it's perfectly muted and fades. Love everything I got from elf :) and I'm really happy to see them spreading their reach in uk in boots and Superdrug- but I must say their prices on their own website and the loyalty scheme they have is the best. Even the packaging is very sleek. Honestly this is better than many high end bbs I've tried in the past. In fact it reminds me of a long lost bb that I loved by origins from a million years ago. I think the origins was a bit better but there really isn't much in it. And obv this is a tenth of what the origins cost! (I got a great deal on these in the recent cyber Monday deal online)

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

Of all the brow pencils I have tried, I think this one is my absolute favorite. For $2 it is definitely more bang for your buck and I hope the brand continues this price point! I got my mom into using it also and she's obsessed. This pencil is not too waxy or dry, not too soft or hard, pigmented yet able to build in depth--it really is the perfect balance of both in a brow pencil like other reviewers have said!

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

on 11/28/2018 8:59:00 PM

This was included in a Target Beauty Box. The palette retails for $8 (a steal) and is a sleek silver square shape (perfect size to fit in your hand) with a large mirror and 4 nice size colors. The colors are pretty suited for those who love nude & peach tones (here, here). There's a matte light brown bronzer, two matte peachy blushes and one shimmery light beige highlighter (my favorite). I'm light-medium olive toned depending on the season, The highlighter shows up best on my face with a subtle shimmer, no glitter (great for my mature age). The bronzer really didn't do much for me. The peach blushes did show up with one being slightly darker than the other. Maybe when winter has set in and my skin tone goes to the pale olive side, the bronzer will be more noticeable. The color payoff is more apparent once you re-apply a few times, save for the highlighter, which is a slam dunk for me. As a last ditch effort, I used the four colors as eye shadows and loved the results for daytime use. The colors are still too light for a night out. I really don't see these palette colors showing up on anyone with medium-dark or darker skin tones. Overall, the colors do live up to their name as "Beautifully Bare Natural Glow". I will update this post once my skin tone goes full on goth in the wintertime.

Very nice clear mascara and very affordable.


Eye Shadow -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette - Nude Mood

foto

really good amount of shades that work for everyday or low-key looks. It's not that pigmented, but i actually found it easier to incorporate into no makeup-makeup looks. I already hit pan using grey for my eyebrows. The reddest shade seems to be very fallout-y and a third of it actually cracked so im upset about that, but it is a beautiful shade i wear often. I cannot use the first two shades at all. but overall, for my first palette, it was great!

I’m never without a backup of this in “nude rose” I use it as eyeliner under my eye rather than a heavy eyeliner. This color matches most every shade of eyeshadow I wear and is so easy to blend out at the edges. It gives me a soft but defined eye and lasts all day. I can only find online at Ulta.

I'm not a huge lipgloss person but I really enjoyed this one. I received it as a free gift with purchase from the ELF website. It is pretty thick but feels very emollient and moisturizing on the lips and gives them a high gloss shine that lasts a really long time.

I have back ups of these even tho i dont use daily. these hold up for the long haul when i use w primer. i think if this was sold at sephora it would be highly talked about. i havent seen them in store but order direct from elf which may be why there arent as many reviews. these and the nyx matte ones are a big part of my eye looks. If you use a stiff brush i do think yiu can create more than a one and done look. I have all the shades. I have also used as a base with pan and loose powders and created more complex looks..douchromes etc. I love them because they are very long lasting.

This foundation looked so good when I initially applied it.
It even looked decent hours later..
Even though it looked good, it felt cakey.
After a couple days of using it my face
now has 8 pimples on it.
Which is not common for me at all.
I would not recommend this product.
I actually only used it because i ran out of my
Favorite foundation and knew i had this
In a make up bag my sister gave me.
I use Maybelline fit me. It's very light and there
Are SO many options to choose from.

Highlighters -e.l.f. Cosmetics -Illuminating Palette

on 11/19/2018 5:46:00 AM

I actually get a lot of use out of this little palette. The lightest shade (upper left) is great for setting my under-eye concealer and general brightening. The pink illuminating powder I use over the top of my usual blush (Nars 'Deep Throat') for just the little extra something, and it's subtle enough to not draw attention to itself, which I love. I use the shade on the bottom left for bronzing/contouring; on my NW20 skin it's perfect and subtle, and since it's not matte it doesn't make my already dry skin look even drier. I've never used the deepest shade in the palette, so I can't help you there. Honestly, I'm very impressed with it. The powder is very fine, it doesn't cake up, and it lives up to exactly what it promises. It's "illuminating"; it's softer and subtler than a highlighter, and if that's what you this is perfect. Is it going to have the quality of Hourglass's Ambient Lighting Palette? No, but it's a lot better than the $6 price tag might imply.

Good ingredients and I get what they're trying to do with the packaging, but this did next to nothing for my acne. I get better results with either straight tea tree oil or just not picking at my face. The rollerball was plastic (last I checked, unless they've changed that?) and it didn't always disperse product evenly.

I've used brow pencils at both ends of the price spectrum and in between and this $3 miracle takes the cake. The perfect shade (Taupe) in the right consistency with a serviceable spoolie on the end. And cruelty-free! A truly magnificent deal that replaces the now discontinued itty-bitty Maybelline brown pencil.
