I love makeup. I love experimenting with new shades and products, but I am kind of particular. I have just tried some amazing makeup – e.l.f. Cosmetics (eyes, lips, face). I was so impressed with this make-up, I wanted to share with you, my readers.
From the e.l.f. website:
e.l.f.’s philosophy is that beauty comes from within and it’s our goal to enable every woman to look and feel her personal best through the perfect blend of both the inner and outer person. With that goal in mind, e.l.f. cosmetics was born a line of simple, luxurious, problem-solution tools that allow you to showcase and believe in your unique, personal beauty. Our cosmetics are designed to improve and accentuate the individual, not hide her away.
We at e.l.f. believe that innovative technology, quality ingredients and superb delivery systems should not be limited to prestige retailers. Every woman should have the opportunity to participate in innovation, without sacrificing her budget. We hope you agree and invite you to experience e.l.f.’s revolutionary, value-priced cosmetics and the proven results they offer.
I received quite a few products and I must say that I am enjoying them very much. I especially love the Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. This is such an easy way to get blush on correctly. It has a darker shade for the main shade and a light pink to apply on the “apple” of the cheek. It goes on flawless every time and looks professionally done. the e.l.f Super Glossy Lip Shine with SPF 15 is another product I am crazy about. It is very glossy, yet not sticky, and the color is gorgeous! From e.l.f.: This Super Glossy SPF 15 formula fights environmental damage while leaving your lips with a healthy glossy glow. The delicious flavor and sweet scent will leave you licking your lips in delight! The perfect on the go tube that is mess proof for anywhere and anytime!
I am really enjoying the Shine Eraser blotting sheets. In the middle of the day, it is so handy to have these to just blot my face – it makes my makeup look like I just put it on. These little things are awesome! From e.l.f.: These amazing little sheets instantly absorb oil, minimize pores and mattify shiny skin. Woven texture eradicates shine and keeps skin matte for hours. Green Tea Extract helps re-texturize skin, masking facial imperfections. Travel pack fits neatly in purse for on-the-go touch-ups. Contains: 50 sheets.
I have also been using the e.l.f. Eyeshadow Brush and the Bronzing Brush. I like both of these very much. The blush brush is angled and works great with blush I mention above. They have a nice selection of other brushes too. I’ve found that the handle of the Bronzer Brush is a little loose, and this morning it fell out of the metal part (that connects the handle to the actual brush) but other than that, the brush itself is wonderful. I may have just had a faulty brush, I’m not sure, as the eyeshadow brush did not have this problem at all.
Now these are the neatest little things. They come packaged in a cute little container, and they work effortlessly. The are nicely scented and it is so much neater and quicker than using hundreds of cotton balls and a bottle! From e.l.f.: These convenient pads quickly and easily remove nail polish without the mess associated with bottled remover. Citrus scent and gentle formula leave nails fresh and soft. e.l.f. Cosmetics also has Eye Makeup Remover Pads in a similar container…I did not try those, but I would love to.
I love the e.l.f. Brightening Color eye shadow. There are several color combinations to choose from – I tried the Nouveau Neutrals. I have Hazel eyes, and these colors were perfect, and made my eyes really stand out. These shadows come with an applicator, but I used the eyeshadow brush instead, with great results. The color stayed on all day, without creasing (oh, how I hate eye shadow that creases!). From e.l.f: Luxuriously smooth, corn silk formula provides eyes with a neutral base and an awakened brightness. The formula blends into skin for a long lasting, beautiful effect. The 4 color quad allows for both natural and dramatic looks. Mirror in compact included.

Bottom line? I am so happy to finally try e.l.f. Cosmetics. I’ve been hearing about them for quite awhile, and I cannot believe that I am just now trying them. I want to try more now – I see a shopping trip in the near future! e.l.f. Cosmetics has an extensive line of makeup products, brushes, starter kits, and even bath and body products!
