Pressed Powders -E.L.F. - Clarifying Pressed Powder
SarahhBolt 12/24/2012 6:05:00 PM
Okay, recently got another E.L.F haul :D So, I decided to try this product and find out what all the fuss was about and now I know. This has become a powder I use on a daily basis. The problem is, I've already hit pan... I just LOVE it. Mines in ivory, A LOT darker than it looks, so if you have slightly pale skin make sure it's the shade you go for (as it's the lightest). I have oily skin and I own dewy foundations so I like to keep them Matte so pressing this onto a pad and then applying to my face just is amazing. Honestly trying this, and Rimmel Stay Matte, I wouldn't bother with another high end Powder. (Sorry for the awful Punctuation)

SUPER pigmented, only need the tiniest amount to create ultra colourful cheeks, I really like this product! And for one pound I can honestly say it competes with those of higher ends. I love using another cheap product (E.L.F Powder Brush) alongside this.

I actually quite like this. Two gorgeous shimmery shades with a little sparkle. The darker colour is stunning in the crease and adds depth to the eyes. The lighter colour is not very pigmented though and could be possibly used to enhance the tear duct/ highlight the brow bone? I like it though, I want more colours.

Okay guys, if you struggle with slightly oilier skin (like myself) or just generally have quite a few spots (like I did) then you will know that it makes you feel terrible and are constantly trying to figure out ways to hide them from people. After trying pretty much everything from slightly cheaper companies such as Freederm, Clean and Clear, Clearsel, Simple etc (in which none of them worked) I decided to spend a little bit more money and get a better one. I purchased this product and was actually really excited to try it! All I can say is that it changed my confidence levels and quite literally made me a happier person. Within around two washes my skin was clear! It took such as huge relief of my chest. It's actually helped me so much. I know it may seem expensive but, omg, is it worth it?! YES! Please go buy it and TRUST ME you will not be let down. It has next to no scent (which is always good for sensitive skin) and is lovely to apply. I simply filled my sink with clean warm water, applied the mask kept it on for around two minutes and rinsed with warm water and a flannel. My skin has never felt so good. I finished a full size one very quickly and it is still easily my fave. AMAZING.
Okay. I love Chapstick. It's a lifesaver. My lips felt quite dry and sore and within a few hours of using my strawberry chapstick, my lips felt smooth and just generally gorgeous! I have loads now and I take on everywhere!
I really wanted to like this product. My skin is not sensitive and after a single use my skin was red, sore and very tight. It's now been four days and nothing has improved. Obviously I stopped using the product and moisturizing just burns and stings. I will not be buying again! Way to harsh.
Wow! This is not a review on the colour specifically but the product! It's amazing! I own/ed two and am determined to own more! They are gorgeous, pigmented lipsticks that feel smooth on your lips. They leave an amazing shine and last for ages! LOVE THIS!
Really soft brush and gives amazing coverage. Doesn't leave any streaks on face. After being washed the bristles are fine too.

Creates an amazing smokey eye. The palette is very pigmented and all the colors are gorgeous.
Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. - Mineral Blending Eye Brush

I got this along with the Flawless eyeshadow (which is AMAZING) and I was so pleased to find this was one of the softest most gorgeous brushes I have used. I love this product, it blends so well and creates the perfect smokey eye. Love this. If you don't have one, buy one!
I brought quite a few products from E.L.F nearly all of which I adore, and I was SO pleased when I found out the quality of this item. I struggle with the smell of most Nail Polish/Remover and I was amazed to find these were citrus scented and smelled gorgeous. They remove all polish on the nails so well and very quickly. The packaging is so slim and can easily slip into my bag. I LOVE this! Thank you SO much! xx
I ordered about ten things of E.L.F and I was SO excited when they arrived today. I loved everything, other than my Mod Mauve nail polish. This was one of the products I was looking forward to trying out the most but I was very upset by the quality of the product. I tried it on over my very expensive base coat eager to try it to find that it was VERY thick and creamy and NOT in a good way. It left streaks all over my nails and dribbled everywhere. The packaging is terrible and it is hard to put the lid back on. I then tried to remove all the mistakes using the E.L.F nail polish remover wipes (which are AMAZING, by the way!) but it just got pieces of the pad stuck in the nail polish and when trying to remove them it causes all of the nail polish to smudge to. It took about 2 minutes to dry, (which I was happy with) but the overall outcome just wasn't worth the hassle and when removing I had to remove my lovely base coat to. Would much rather spend a few more pounds for a good product. Sorry E.L.F, I usually love your products.
