I picked up a few e.l.f. products at Target the other day but I wasn’t sure if I’d like them because they’re so inexpensive! I love the price point of $1-3 each and had high hopes for the quality. Overall, they’re pretty good and I have no regrets, there are even a few winners, so here’s what I got:
This is a setting spray with Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber, and Vitamins A, C, & E. This is one of the winners because I can use it 2 ways! It’s great to spritz over my whole face as the final step to set my mineral powder foundation and help it look natural, not cakey. I also spray it onto a flat foundation brush and pat the brush on my under eye concealer to set it and keep it from settling into wrinkles.
If you like to exfoliate your lips, this is a quick and easy way to do it. It’s like a lipstick with sand in it, but it’s sugar crystals. You apply like lipstick to damp lips, rub with fingers, and wipe off with a damp cotton round. That’s it! And it tastes great too.
This one is a hit and a miss… I like the primer, but not the plumper. The good news is they sell the primer separately. While the plumper smells great (like freshly grated cinnamon), it stings for the first couple of minutes and it doesn’t seem to plump as much as some other products. I thought I wasn’t going to like the primer since it goes on yellowish-white. But if you rub it in a little and then apply lipstick, it really makes the lipstick last much longer. It’s quite moisturizing, and even counteracts the drying effect of some lipsticks.
A great idea, but hard to use (at least for the uncoordinated)! I can not get it together to hold this up with one hand and apply mascara with the other, but if you’re more coordinated than me, it could be really great.
A super-soft, not-too-dense, flat topped synthetic brush that’s great for blending mineral powders or bronzers, and for applying setting powder.
This is a dense, yet soft, small domed eyeshadow brush. It’s great for adding a light shimmery shadow to the eyelid below the crease, and also good for doing an outer V. The size helps you control where and how much shadow you apply.
