I was impressed a now much I like the product considering the price.I will agree with the other reviewer that this is very yellow toned but then I just add a pinkish powder on top and that off sets the yellow tint.This really does cover without too much product..I have tried with without brush and my fingers and I well the fingers are better for application.. Creasing with this does happen if not set with a powder.This maybe because I have under eye wrinkles and have had since I was 20 and it got in there so I took a q-tip to smooth them out and that helped most of the problem.
These are crazy pigmented but they don't blend well so I am not a fan of these product.Even if you get it nicely blended within 10 minutes the blush starts looking real patchy and because of the bright colors it is super obvious.Even if you set the foundation it will still go bad. They are almost too pigmented.You have to pat these on to your wrist and end on your cheeks otherwise you start looking like a clown. I have this in superstar it a bright peachy pink it also looks nice on my .lips and doesn't dry them out.
This has like no pigment I had to shave odd the top off to get any pigment.If you use a brush either on the blush or bronzer there is like no pigment.If you use a powder puff you get more pigment but it isn't practical.The bronzer you would have to be dead to have it shows up i'm super pale and it jut looks like a slight sheen.Now I know why it was on clearence for $5. Both side suck stay away not worth the work it takes to get color as what color there is ,is sheer.
I cashed in point to get this so the fact that i wouldn't repurchase doesn't bother me as much.They have a deal now that they give you a free mini when you purchase a large mascara. I had to dry this out for like 6 hours before I found it usable. The mascara was so wet and the wand had tons of extra product all over it especially the spiky rounded end, to get corner of the eye. I found that this mascara required too much work to get it to look nice, it clumps and smudges easily.You need an amazing eyelash comb to fix likely clumps. I like the wand because it can get into smaller area so i will use this want with other mascara. This remind my of voluminous carbon black or the one by one by maybelline. and both are better and much cheaper If this is to expensive for you elf has a mascara that is a decent dupe since the want is exactly the same.
I'm amazed that no one has reviewed this product before now. This actually works.I wasn't expecting it too like this but for three dollars I thought I would give this a try.Everyone needs to buy this product. Your supposed to put on mascara and while it's still wet apply the powder and then apply another coat of mascara to set it.It takes a few minutes for the volume of your mascara to build up. I would think that this process is easier if you have a wetter mascara to begin with I tried this with 2 mascara with varying degrees of succeed the maybelline one by one and l'oreal's voluminous both in waterproof.I found that it worked better with the one by one, that maybe because the l'oreal is already super volumizing that it might be harder to notice the difference . Some times you will get flaking from mascaras that don't ever flake I haven't found the reason for this yet. THE ONLY PROBLEM Is the packaging makes this product much more difficult to use .It comes with a disposible mascara wand with this white cotton look a like powder.The power is in a tightly packed tube so you can't put the wand all the way down the tube without making a huge mess.If you just put the wand in the top, half of the wand won't have powder because the tube isn't wide enough I suggest finding a more suitable container for the power for better results and less mess. Update I\ve tried it with 6 other mascaras and wanted to let you know how they worked in case your fav mascara didn't end up looking that great The bad ones It look terrible with they're real mascara by benefit and my biggest lashes by prestige.They caused a clumpy mess. Full in soft wasn't much better Okay Sexy curves was to dry to get alot of the power to stick The colossal did give tons of extra volume but it made my lashes go all over the place needed a comb to get them to look more normal. okay some flaking: e.l.f. 3 and 1 mascara The best one Lashblast fusion It look amazing with lashblast fusion by cover girl.

I really like how moisturizing the foundation can be.The one downer is that this has to be set otherwise it moves around everywhere.I wouldn't wear this in the summer or if you spend the day under bright lights even when set this can still start melting off your face in as little as 10 minutes. I think that this would be much better winter foundation than summer foundation If you are looking for LIGHT coverage this is for you otherwise i'd pass

This has replaced my elf powder brush as my favorite brush ever.It is the softest brush i have ever felt.I loved the fact that it is a very dense brush and buffs in product amazing.This isn't even this lines buffing brush and it kicks butt at everything you throw at it. The fact that it is able to stand on it's own comes in handy. I had tried a new foundation and had applied it with my stippling brush from sigma and it wasn't going on nicely then I remembered the brush arrived in the mail and hope it would fix the problem and found that IT DID!. You can use this to do a million things and it's good at all of them.It blends foundation amazingly ,great at blush and highlighter and applying power ,removing fallout.This will be a HG item forever. I loved it so much that after that first day I ordered the core collection can't wait until it gets here.

I like paleish nude lips and when I swatched it it looked like a peachy pink nude.On my lips it looks only slightly darker than my skin tone and i'm not one of those people that can carry off that look. I have too add some of cherish balm stain in order to make the look wearable I look never weak this on it;s own. I can use this to add some demenision to other looks.It such a pretty. color it;s such a shame i can't wear it
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Stain Balm - Crush
mirageangelhope 10/19/2012 11:49:00 PM
I find this to be more of a maroon color as opposed to the darker berry I was expecting from online swatches .On my pale skin the maroon color doesn't look nice on me I end up needing to put nyx's lipstick in chaos overtop to make it look like a very dark berry color. I won't repurchase this shade but most any other color of the 8 I own would get repurchased. EVEN though I'm not a fan pf the color it still does everything that it says it will do it glossy it stain the lips doesn't dry them out.I still find that this products mint scent is over bearing but other than that love the line
I just didn't find this to be very opaque it gives the lips just a red twinge and not the red lipstick that I was expecting.It an okay product if you want a sheer than this is the product for you. The packaging is annoying it takes forever for the product to come out of the applicator and you can easily end up with too much product.
This is my first yellow toned highlighter and I have to say that I really like it on my cheeks but not under the brow.I like how pale of a yellow it is so it looks more natural on the skin.This lasts all day on my skin even when the blush is long .
OMG This is my holy grail brush.I have sigma ones and I love this 10x more than any of those brushes. it doesn't waste product by having the brush absorbing foundation. .Besides the fact that this allow you to easily apply foundation around the nose and mouth this brush makes you look amazing . This brush applies liquid foundation so easily and makes it looks so flawless with very little effort and no need for a another brush to buff in product.It's amazing how evenly this brush applies foundation to the face.I find that this brush seems to help you get a fuller coverage look with no extra product. I will be purchasing more as soon as I can!
Concealers -E.L.F. - Studio Maximum Coverage Concealer
mirageangelhope 10/18/2012 2:44:00 AM
This is full coverage, thicker concealer.It goes on easily and doesn't crease and has great lasting power with no creasing or caking up. I like this better than my urban decay concealer pencil,no joke!
This is one of e.l.f. newest brushes from the studio line.I got this because I thought that it would be good for contour but it isn't. If you have studio blush brush I don't think you need this because they are basically the same brush.This brush is only like 20% smaller than the blush brush.It doesn't taper too much so I have no idea what this brush can do that the blush brush can't unless you have a very small cheeks. It's okay but not great if you have the other brush already.
I really like this it really reminds me of covergirls professional mascara it's dry mascara that never flakes and really does give volume and separation without clumps.For being so cheap it truly amazing. update doesn't work well combined with volumizing power it gives volume but flake badly
