This has to be one of my favourite lip products! I have this in First Date and I also used to have Lucky Lady. They are very pigmented and last ages, at least 7 hours. I apply it and let it dry and apply a second coat if I want to. Be sure the stain has dried before you put on the gloss; otherwise the gloss will remove the stain and the gloss applicator will get dirty and gross. Lucky Lady is quite a unique colour, a pinkish light brown whit a hint of orange. It's a very natural colour and I believe it would look flattering on many skintones. No shimmer. First Date is a bright pink with gold shimmer. Cool toned ladies, don't be scared of the shimmer! It's not very noticeable on the lips. I'm cool toned and this look really good on me, so have no fear! There are cons: the stain is very drying, you have to moisturize your lips very well after you apply the product but even if you do that sometimes the product still settles into fine lines.
Loose Powders -E.L.F. - Studio High Definition Powder

I needed a translucent powder to set my makeup, so I bought this. I was very impressed the first time I applied because it minimized my pores and was good for setting concealer. However, after 5 hours my nose was really oily! And I don't have very oily skin...The Mineral Booster by E.L.F. is better for controlling shine. I did like the fact that my concealer didn't budge the whole day, but I was expecting this to also control shine for at least 5-6 hours, which wasn't the case. I am quite disappointed since I heard so many great reviews about this product.
This stuff is amazing! WARNING: You really have to rub the product into your lids and wait a little bit for it to dry. This works very well with the less pigmented shadows, like the E.L.F. quads, making them a bit more pigmented. With this primer all my eyeshadows last over 12 hours! I would totally repurchase.
This is one my favourite mineral eyeshadows. It's a beautiful shimmery copper colour that I think would look good with most eye colours. Very pigmented even without a primer. It's very easy to apply and blend. I use it over E.L.F.'s mineral primer and it lasts over 12 hours! It's very easy to apply and blend and there's a sifter so it doesn't get messy. I would totally buy this again!
This product is not sheer. I have a light skintone and the powder slightly changes my natural colour, making me look a bit more pink. I'm cool toned with pink undertones, so this is not pleasant at all! However, this does a good job at controlling oiliness (7-8 hours) but my skin isn't very oily. I think a person with really oily skin should look for something else. Overall, don't buy this if you have pink undertones and don't want to look pinker. I gave this 4 lippies because it is good at controlling shine if you don't have too much and it makes your skin feel soft. It controls shine better than the HD Powder from E.L.F.
I really like these nailpolishes. There is a huge variety of colours, they're cheap and they last about a week on my nails. found out that the 264 nail polish is a great dupe for Chanel’s Vendetta. I wore Vendetta once and I searched for a similar colour for a long time, and 264 is the prefect dupe, although it is sligtly darker than Vendetta.
Lipstick -E.L.F. - Mineral Lipstick in Rosy Raisin

I love this! This is a mauve\pink colour with silver shimmer and the pigmentation is not the best but it's ok. It's a bit sheer and I thought It wouldn't show up well on my lips because they are quite pigmented but, surprisingly, this gives my lips a natural soft pink colour that compliments my cool undertones. It applies very smooth and I wear this when my eye makeup is dark or when I want a natural look with a bit of colour. Unfortunately, this doesn't last very long, only 2-3 hours.
Lipstick -E.L.F. - Mineral Lipstick in Barely Bitten

This is described on the E.L.F. websiteas a ''Deep pink with gold shimmer''. Don't be fooled because this is RED. I think this would look good on warm skintones because of the golden shimmer. It also seems to me that this is a good colour for dark skinned or tan people because it's very rich. Unfortunately I bought this when I didn't know I was cool toned so I can only wear with a bit of foundation on top to make it a nice wearable pink, whick is a shame, because the colour is pretty and nicely pigmented.
Eye Shadow -E.L.F. - Mineral Eyeshadow in Caffeinated

The name of the eyedashadow is deceiving - you'd expect it to be a coffee brown colour-, but to me it looks like a medium brown with a lot of gold shimmer (way too much) and a very subtle hint of green. In my opinion, it is a pretty colour, but if you don't like shimmer don't get it. I think it would be a lot prettier if it wasn't so shimmery.
