E.L.F is a makeup brand known for its affordability and variety. It is also notorious for having some of the best and worst makeup in the drugstore. Here’s a guide to some of them, based on personal experience. All products mentioned can be found at Target and on eyeslipsface.com.
E.L.F. Studio Cream Eyeliner in Black ($3): Definitely my go-to eyeliner. The consistency is excellent for an even line and a crisp wing. The pigmented black color stays put all day, even on oily lids.
E.L.F. Studio Powder Brush ($3): For $3, this brush is absolutely amazing. It is the perfect size and has the softest bristles around. It is sturdy and looks exceptionally sleek. The flat top makes it ideal for setting powder or bronzer.
E.L.F. Studio Small Angled Brush ($3): This brush is the perfect size and angle for any of your eyeliner needs, including precise eyeliner wing application, no skill needed.
E.L.F. Essential Shine Eraser ($1): These blotting sheets are ideal to soak up any excess oil that may appear during the day. Just blot your oily areas, re-apply powder if needed, and you will good as new.
E.L.F. Studio Mist & Set Spray ($3) An exceptional, affordable way to keep your makeup in place all day. It keeps makeup from slipping and sliding around in the Floridian sun. Just spray it on when you e complete your makeup, and it will stay all day. It also reduces a caked-on appearance.
E.L.F. Eyeshadow Palette in Butternut ($1): I brought this eyeshadow quad because of the gorgeous colors. Once I tried it, the one word I could think of was FALLOUT. Everywhere. I was less than amused with the glitter all over my face. Unless you are going for the Edward Cullen look, stay away from this eyeshadow.
E.L.F. Studio Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 ($3): This is by far the worst E.L.F. product I have ever used. The color selection is limited, so the chance of finding your correct shade is minimal. Application was a pain due to the awful packaging and how fast it dries. Once it was on, it looked patchy and uneven. Throughout the day, it turned orange on my skin while highlighting my dry patches. Not cute.
E.L.F. Studio Blush & Bronzer Duo ($3): While this blush and bronzer duo provides impeccable pigmentation, the amount of glitter is not okay. On top of that, this bronzer can be much too dark for someone of a lighter complexion.
E.L.F. Essential Eyeshadow Brush ($1): All over the Internet, people rave about this brush, but I have come to hate it. It is much too short and stubby to be effective. It fails to pick up the eyeshadow correctly, providing uneven application. This brush also sheds.
E.L.F. Essential Liquid Eyeliner in Black ($1): After an hour or two, it starts to flake off all around my eyes, creating a raccoon effect. The scent is not so hot, either.
