This is, in my opinion, one of the only ELF palettes worth buying. It has a fantastic shade range and every shade in the palette performs equally well IMO. The only complaint I have in terms of quality is that I find them hard to blend if your lid is not properly primed. These are stiff shadows - they aren't nearly as buttery as your standard shimmer or mattes from a higher end brand, and as …Read more

I got the shade 110 watt, and I really enjoy it. I don't purchase anything high-end but compared to other drugstore/affordable highlights I've tried this is awesome! If you're very pale, I think you might have issues with the range of colors. I'm fair (not porcelain, but usually one of the lighter shades in most foundations) and 110 watt is just right - it looks silvery in the …Read more

This is currently my HG highlighter. I don't buy anything high-end so I'm not comparing it to more popular, expensive highlighters like Becca or CoverFX but in the drugstore this is definitely the best I've tried. I know it's in the bronzer line, and I've heard that very very pale individuals do use it as such, but it's really much too light for most of us to be …Read more

I actually really, really like this blush! It's surprisingly pigmented for a cheap blush, and the color is so eye-catching. It's a true Barbie pink, especially given the glitter - that's why it's called Fantastic Plastic Pink. It's not too warm, very neutral in tone. The glitter actually doesn't bother me, and it isn't as obvious once applying it. I know it …Read more

So, I really wanted to like this foundation. It may work out for someone else, but my experience hasn't been great despite the price. I do not own ANY high-end.. anything, especially foundations. All I use is drugstore so I can't compare it to a higher-end foundation, but this is the worst foundation out of the entire Rimmel line that I've tried (and I've tried almost all of …Read more

I really love the texture, consistency and coverage of this product BUT it breaks me out, which really makes me sad. I had hoped this would become my HG summer foundation but I'm stuck looking elsewhere :(.

PROS:
• Great finish (even, easy to blend, not cakey)
• Matches me perfectly (only drugstore foundation I haven't had to mix with something else to get my …

This product is great for the price. I have combination skin that is dry and flaky in the mornings and ends up looking like an oil slick by mid-afternoon. I was previously using the Maybelline Matte+Poreless, which had a great finish but oxidized like CRAZY on my oily skin. The dewy finish one was also fantastic in finish but left me looking slick by end of the day, even with hefty powder. Mixing …Read more
