This was the first finishing powder I ever bought, back when I was just getting into makeup. It's OK. I use it to set my foundation. The powder's translucent and there are tiny sparkles in it, but -- in my experience -- the sparkles don't actually show up on the skin. It's not a bad powder, nor is it an outstandingly good one. I'll finish using this up, but I won't …Read more

This is the eyeliner that meets all of my criteria. I love soft eyeliners that glide on easily and that have slightly larger tips. It does transfer, but I set it with black eyeshadow after putting it on.

This is my favorite brow product. I have extremely sparse/light brows, and so I basically have to paint on my entire brow every morning. This stays in place all day, it doesn't fade, and the product itself lasts forever. I have been using mine every day for months and I still have quite a lot left -- though I do notice it's a little harder to squeeze out now than in the beginning …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Makeup Mist & Set Spray

This does basically nothing. I don't notice it making my makeup last longer. Personally, I don't even notice it making my makeup look much less powdery. It just ... does nothing. It's like water. I guess it does refresh my face a little bit? The spray bottle isn't very good though. I will not be repurchasing.

EDIT: After some more testing, I am changing my review …

This works extremely well at removing my eye makeup. I just put some on a cotton pad and hold it over my eyes, and it helps the makeup slide right off. It doesn't sting my eyes at all. So far, this is my favorite eye remover that I've tried.

This is very harsh on the skin, and leaves my skin quite dry. However, it does a great job of removing all of the makeup on your face, and I like that, because I break out if there is any product I didn't get off my skin. Make sure to moisturize well if you use this or if you are prone to dry skin.

It is quite a dense brush. However, the bristles are very hard. The hairs hardly bend when touching my face, and the tips poke into your foundation. Personally, that makes my skin look textured rather than smooth. I don't know if that's how it works for other people, because it seems to be a very well liked brush by many, but that's how it works for me. It does seem durable and it …Read more

I wanted to love this so bad, after hearing all of the good reviews about it. However, it just didn't work on my skin tone. This pulled really warm and orange on me. It was a super noticeable stripe on my face rather than a natural looking highlight, as I wanted.

I have very pale, cool olive skin, and makeup colors often seem to pull oddly on me. However, the formula of this was …

Aug/29/2017

This is pretty expensive for a drugstore highlighter. However, I like it a lot. I like a dramatic highlighter, and this is perfect for that. The shade I got is Twilight Tint, which is a cool white; if you have warm skin, you might not want this shade, as it will probably pull weirdly greyish or blueish on you. But if you are super pale or cool skinned, and looking for a highlighter that will show …Read more
