E.L.F. Haul & Review

I've been seen a lot of hype about E.L.F.(eyes, lips, face) on YouTube.

The hype is mostly because their products are dirt cheap. By dirt cheap is from $1-6 US dollars.

Which is pretty amazing for people who are just getting started with makeup.

I decided to order a couple of products and see my own eyes what the fuss was about. Besides, I had a coupon for 50% off... so it was hard to resist.

Products I Ordered
-flat top powder brush
-daily brush cleaner
-brightening eye shadow quad (brownstone)
-eyeshadow duo (mocha swirl & butterpercan)
-studio complexion perfection
-studio blush and bronzer duo

Flat top brush is by far my favorite powder brush ever! The bristles are very soft, which is ideal for setting powder. This brush reminds me of Sonia Kashuk's flat top brush, but this one has a bigger head.

The daily brush cleaner is very good for spot cleaning. Which i like because I'm lazy when it comes to wash my eye brushes between colors. It dries inmediately.

Brightening eyeshadow quad in brownstone is one of the most perfect combination of browns i've seen, they are all matte. Very pigmented, and last a long time when using a primer. My only complain the the pan size, it barely fits my eyeshadow brushes, also the amount of product is very little. But that's what you get for a dollar.

The eyeshadow duos were my biggest dissapoinment. First the swatches on the website are way off. Mocha Swirl looks like it has a pink side, but IRL its purple. They are very powdery and chalky, and they smell serious. Their scent reminds me a lot of the wood section of the Home Depot. Pigmentation and staying power is alright.

L to R: Butter Pecan, Mocha Swirld

To be honest, I don't know about the complexion perfection powder. I have not used it, only did a test once and it was about 11 pm. I do feel that i made me look paler since all of the colors just come off as white when swatched.
L to R: Yellow, Blue, Green, Pink.

Love the Bronzer & Blush duo, close dupe to Nars laguna and orgasm. Love the colors, the pigmantation and the staying power! Only complain is that the compact gets a little messy since both of the products are very powdery. I has a huge mirror.. Will repurchase again!Add ImageL to R: Blush, Bronzer, random eyeshadow

So that was it.
Hope you guys enjoyed

  1. Hi, thank you so much for following me :) I really like this review, I'm curious about the brush cleaner! Anyway, I have been using the complexion perfection powder for while that I've hit pan, and it's really good for oil absorption as well as neutralizing skintones :) It's true that you have to be careful how much you put lol but don't chuck it, it's a good product :) Thanks again for following me!
