As you may know ELF (eyes lips face .com) is a fantastic website and brand that has tons of different makeup and tools that are incredibly priced low. A lot of their stuff is great quality and with a surprising yet exciting price tag. So, I have tried a lot of their products and I wanted to share the products I am LOVING and the ones that I am not so loving.

I SAY: I LOVE this lipstick, it is very very smooth on the lips! It smells like fruity bubble gum and is very pigmented! My current favorite color is “gypsy” such a beautiful bold pink color! Goes perfect with their gloss in “flirt”
e.l.f. Essential Hypershine Gloss

I SAY: This is so close in pigmentation to the Hula bronzer by benefit! It’s a very rich brown bronze color and with a big fluffy brush or kabuki brush it goes on nicely without being streaky. For only $2 it’s a great deal and I love it!
e.l.f. Mineral Eye Liner
ELF SAYS: Create definition that’s soft, natural and brilliant. The natural based formula provides gentle coverage for even the most sensitive eyes. The twist up applicator is easy for instant use, no sharpening required. 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.
I SAY: Well, I will first say I do LOVE that there is no chemical dyes or parabens in this eyeliner. And the black one is very pigmented and SO smooth….but if you sweat just a LITTLE tiny bit it starts to wear off….I mean it’s like almost gone off my face after I just applied it like 4 times. So….not so much a fan of this eye liner.

ELF SAYS: Zap zits away with the unique blend of Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil, Witch Hazel and Camphor.
This special clear formula helps to fight and prevent acne, reduce redness and swelling, minimize pore size and clear skin.
