I am not an e.l.f. fan but once in a while I do find a winner among the crap they sell. This foundation though just nudges to the winning side and only because of it's high spf but other things nudge it right back to losing.

Here's what great about it: It's in a pump which is nice. One pump is enough for my whole face. I don't need a sponge or brush for this. It …

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

Totally not worth the money. It adds volume well but so do many drugstore mascaras. Oh and it clumps on the second coat as well as smear on the lower lashes. Bleh and meh. For that kind of price at the minimum I want both volume, length, no clumps and no smudges. If it doesn't do all that then why even bother switching from drugstore brands?

I got a mini from Ulta as a birthday gift. When I tried it I was impressed. It almost looked like I was wearing my Ardell 110 falsies. For those that don't wear false eyelashes Ardell 110 is the style that I wear when I want fluttery, long lashes but looks completely like I was blessed with lovely natural lashes. I've not experienced clumping, smudging or flaking with this mascara and …Read more

I'm on my second pump. I went a few months without it thinking I don't need it. I was wrong. Dead wrong. Ugh. I really hate when that happens. My pores got larger, skin got coarser and more clogged without it. Reordered it ASAP. Use only one pump and apply it right after my toner. The dampness of the toner on the skin helps to spread the small amount more evenly over the skin. This is …Read more

I bought this to help make my Missha BB cream work and it did. I still hate the Missha BB cream but I like this stuff. Two drops makes the BB cream workable for my skin. I shake the living crap out of the dropper bottle and then squeeze out the drops and mix it on the back of my hand with the BB cream. Then use my beauty blender or flat top brush to apply.

Note I said like not love the …

Jan/06/2016

Blast it all. I really didn't want to like this stuff. First of all I was a toner doubter. Never believed it was necessary. Second of all I couldn't believe anything that light and odorless and colorless and felt just like water on my skin could do anything. But my pores looked so huge and I decided to try a bottle. Then I noticed after a couple of weeks my pores shrunk. Like really …Read more

I've been giving this mascara too many chances than it deserves. Not bad mascara. I don't know why it's such a hit for all these YouTube beauty gurus though because IMHO it's nothing special.

The Good: The washable formula doesn't flake or smudge but it lasts all day. Easy to wash off with regular cleanser. Nice rich black formula that defined my lashes …

My first try at a BB Cream. Was matched with shade 23.

Packaging is 100% excellent. The pump at the end of a tube makes dispensing the product so hygienic. The product blends smoothly onto my face and best of all it plays well with other products. Moisturizers, primers, concealers, setting powders all had no problems sitting underneath or on top of this. Feels light on my face and at …

Aug/18/2015

Like other lengthening formula mascaras this one doesn't do much in volume. That is not a minus for me. This doesn't say it's a volumizing formula and I've given up on finding a mascara that can give length as well as volume. What it does do very well is define my short lashes, give them great length, apply without clumping, and wear without flaking or smearing. When I mean …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Blemish Control Primer

Jul/27/2015

Every primer I used has broken me out except for MAC prep and prime and this one. Unlike the MAC prep and prime the e.l.f. Studio Blemish Control Primer actually does something. I can't say it made my makeup last longer because I haven't noticed it doing so. I can say that with 2% salicylic acid it's pretty effective in fighting blemishes. I used this over existing blemishes on my …Read more
