I have the boosters in Sheer AND Shimmer. I LOVE these. I mostly love the shimmer better. Here is why: Sheer- This is sort of like a setting powder for me. There is no shimmer or glitter and it helps keep my oily skin intact. I've read that some say this is more of a pinkish tone, but it works so well for me (probably because i have pinkish/blue undertones). I love this as it makes my skin look nice and refreshed somewhat and gives me that airbrushed look. Its very similar to BE mineral veil but "slightly" tinted sort of. Although it works the same way for me. :) Shimmer- I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE THIS! It looks white until you shine it infront of a light you can see the pearly pinkish glowy color-but it is NOT glittery or overly shimmery. I cannot explain this, but it just gives you a SUPER "pregnancy" pretty glow! BE radiance I LOVE-but some of them are too shimmery (bare radiance I LOVE, but pure radiance is very shimmery for my oily skin so I love using that one as a highlighter or even for my eyelids). But this one just makes you glowy-withOUT that "too shimmery/glitter" look-and it does this at the same time makes my oily skin stay matte. I have never found such a product that keeps my skin matte while at the same time, providing me with that perfect "glow". THIS IS IT! If you cannot decide on which one to buy, I would say the shimmer one is perfect! Glowing without having to look like a disco oily glitter face! I love it so much I am stocking up on this. I hope they never discontinue the shimmer one-EVER!
Concealers -E.L.F. - Studio Maximum Coverage Concealer

I'm very shocked by how good this actually works! I actually dont use a lot of foundation anymore (now that I'm older), I prefer a more sheer faced look. But when it comes to concealer, it always matters. Now my absolute fav concealor has been Bare Minerals Bisque (the regular one-not the summer one). Somehow that one suits me perfectly and makes me look flawless day and night. However, for cream concealers, I have to admit, this one works pretty well. It's not the best on the market-but for the price it works DARN good. Its sort of like a thick foundation (which can be used as foundation). It smoothes out pretty well and I didn't notice any oxidation or "orange" color after hours went buy. Nude matches my skin perfectly. So if you are very light, you may want their lightest shade-but I also use the lighter shade sometimes in areas where I want to highlight (since I sometimes contour my face using concealers and foundations rather than just powder). ;) Overall, for such a low price give this a try!
I have this color! Its a bit different than the picture on their website. Overall its a nice light creamy peachy/nudey pink. These do not feel sticky on my lips at all. Considering the price, these and NYX have the best affordable lip glosses! My only complaint is I dont like the lip brush end. I prefer the basic kind that smooths it on better. Something about the hairs just drag it all over and not evenly. Oh well, won't complain since its so cheap! I'll be buying all the colors soon!
I just got this blush about a week ago and I wear this one almost everyday!! Sooo pigmented, color is just beautiful! It lasts all day on me. It wont go on too harsh if you just stipple a tiny bit at a time. This is my favorite out of all of them. :)
I'm on an E.L.F kick right now! This is actually the closest dupe to Nar's "super Orgasm" blush! The sparkles and pink color are almost exactly the same! The same small glitters too! I find for some reason although very pigmented, the powder gets messy really fast when swiping my blush brush with it. So watch out for that (the other Studio blushes dont do that-just this one so far). But if you want a dupe to Nar's super orgasm blush but doesn't want to spend as much, this would be a great cheaper alternative. ;)
This cream blush is very very nice! Makes my cheeks "pop"! Very smooth and blends pretty good! It looks dry at first when you first open it, but its very pigmented and the colors are very pretty. Soft and matte too! This comes in handy for hot summers. :)
Absolutely love these! I have "Bronze", "Sassy", "earthy", "girly", "Mysterious", "galmorous", and the rest is on the way soon! Very pigmented, long lasting. I always use my finger for the base lid of my eye (not the crease however), and used with primer they last even longer. These are mostly shimmery, but not "glittery", although the shimmer is on the high side, but I love shimmer shadow. There are a few more matte colors too. They are very similar to Bare minerals eye shadow for much cheaper! Cannot believe how cheap these are! I will always continue to buy these. :) My only small complaint was I wish it had a lock sifter that you can open and close.
Holy Goodness, I bought three of these (Diva, Headliner, and Superstar). LOVE LOVE LOVE these!! They last a long time, HIGHLY freaken pigmented (you ONLY need the most tiny dab for enough product -and even that may be too much). These are great cheek stains, as WELL as lip stains! HG blush for life!!
I took off 1 lippi only because the oil diffuser for this hardly smells up the room as expected (although I know the candles are always stronger). I LOVE this scent and I LOVE this candle in this scent!! Smells slightly "bubble-gummy" and sweet floral fruity! Just wish the oil diffuser would be just as strong.
Out of ALL her perfumes, this one is the one I keep repurchasing. What I like most about this one is that it doesn't smell like ANYthing else on the market! Its very dark, sweet, and mysterious! I love the dry down as well. It seems to have a lot of notes, but everytime I wear this, I just feel like I'm in the spotlight or something (lol). The staying power is also very very good (all of her perfumes have good staying power). My fav!!

LOVE THIS. My signature scent for the past 5 years. My husband loves it too (he has a sweet tooth lol). Lasting power is good too! A very nice vanilla sweet scent! The pear and almond notes is what makes this really stay sweet and sexy at the same time. I hope this NEVER gets discontinued.
I love using this for my cream blush or powder blush! My only slight complaint is I wish it was more dense. But its only $3! So I can't argue with that one! I really love Elf's brushes! Cheap, great quality, and very good use out of them. :)
I agree with others about this fabulous brush. And only $3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It works GREAT with liquid foundation! My face looks so airbrushed! I can't believe how much of a steal this brush is! I have 3 of them!! I use one for liquid foundation, 1 for powder, and one for when I use my BareMinerals Radiance glow powder!!! HG brush!
Self Tanners -Sally Hansen - Airbrush Legs Deep Glow

My HG!!!! Been using this since 2004! I wear it all the time. I also brush some shimmer powder on my front thighs and calves after applying this when I wear skirts or dresses. The only slight con, is that it can feel a little heavy. But that is why its important to not use any lotion or thick lotions/oil before applying this. I HAVE used makeup primer on my legs before before applying this (I know, thats a lot of primer that can be used up fast) but that also makes it easier to glind and blend). I always use the Darkest one (deep glow). Gives a very pretty tan! This and "Aero Tan" are the 2 best "temporary tan sprays" on the market!
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner

I actually like this eyeliner. But I do agree with others as the blackest color seems more of a dark grey. I like tho that this one looks a bit more natural. I did notice tho, if you go over the first line with a second, it does get darker. Doesn't really last too much in my water line, but that's ok because I always use a pencial for my water line.
