Hola! Kumusta (how are you)?
Today is all about a mini e.l.f Cosmetics haul and a quick review.
I have tried some products from e.l.f before, mainly the powder blush (quad palette) which is really great so I thought why not try something new? I’ve been trying these items for a few weeks now so I guess it’s time to share my thoughts.
Now, enough with the chat and let’s dive in!
This silky smooth powder blush melts into the skin creating a beautiful brightened glow. Formulated to create lasting color that accentuates your features and flatters your skin tone. A built-in mirror and brush are included for convenient flawless application.
This blush comes with a brush (which I don’t really use, but it’s good to have incase you need one) and a mirror that makes it even more appealing to carry around. This blush cost $2.00, totally affordable!
The next item I purchased is the e.l.f. Matte Lip Color in the shade Dash of Pink. I like the packaging of this lipstick, it’s a twist up lip pencil and very safe to throw in your purse. The cap/lid seals tightly which is a huge plus (less mess in your bag), the pigmentation is surprisingly good too and this cost $3.00 which isn’t so bad.
This convenient jumbo sized lip pencil creates exact color application with twist up ease so you never have to sharpen – but we included a sharpener at the base just in case! The pigment rich color glides on effortlessly and easily to provide long lasting matte color. The enriched Vitamin A, C & E formula moisturizes and hydrates lips for beautiful healthy looking lips.
This lipstick claims to be a matte finish, but for some reason it is not! I’m not sure if it’s the shade that I picked but it definitely didn’t stay matte. I find this more on a satin finish (I’m sure some of you will like), this comes off easily and not transfer proof. I always make sure that I apply a lip balm prior to applying any lip products on my lips but this lip pencil dried my lips out. I’m surprised because the ingredients are really good that helps moisturize and nourish your lips. I’ve worn this several times but I had to put it aside and didn’t reach for it since then.
This beautifully tinted lip balm helps create baby soft lips so you can always be kissable! Each color provides a sheer tint of coverage for a lovely and luscious lip effect. Infused with Vitamin A & E, Grape Seed Oil, and Jojoba Oil to help nourish, protect, and moisturize lips. The silky smooth formula glides on lips for lasting comfort while the minty flavor keeps lips feeling fresh.
Our Shimmering Facial Whip is a multipurpose, on-the-go whipped highlighter packed with Vitamin E to instantly brighten and soothe skin with no greasy after-feel. Ideal for using on your cheeks, lips, eyelids or anywhere you would like a radiant pop of shimmering color.
This smooth gel formula glides on perfectly. Use it as a long-lasting eyeshadow or eyeliner! Enriched with Vitamin E to nourish and hydrate the delicate eye area.
The formulation is beautiful and the shade Aint That Sweet is surprisingly stunning. I’ve used this a few times and I’m pretty much impressed. It’s really easy to blend, definitely a great primer that makes your powder eyeshadow applies nicely and last longer too. I like to use this all by itself when I am in a rush and no time to apply a full-on makeup for work.
Create a healthy and natural glow all year long with the Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of color, while the Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition. This convenient compact has just what you need to achieve a gorgeous glow anytime, anywhere.
e.l.f Cosmetics is truly a hit or miss, you just have to find the one that works best for you. I know what I like and I’m sure you do too. Care to share your faves?
