Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I am loving elf more than mac lately lol. Its because you can purchase like 20 things for 15 bucks. I love that they always have coupon codes/free shipping etc. I find their customer svc excellent and love the magazine deal (free yr sub. with $20 purchase). Anyway, I love their studio line brushes. Their contour brush is amazing! It picks up sooo much product. I also love their mineral e/s. I think I have almost all of them.They are very pigmented and so pretty. I also have their mineral e/s primer which is amazing. I have not tried the studio line primer. Their lipglosses are great and the plumping one for a dollar actually works. I also love that they sell magnetized quads for one dollar. I am always ordering from them, its addicting!

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

Love their brushes. But I havent had the urge to try their make up products....

I did order some of their blotting tissues, but those are lame.

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

Studio line also has a Mineral Primer now :-)
I wonder how long till we get that in the UK? They seem to be filtering in these products quite slowly...

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I'm curious as to what people have seen in target stores - i was in there the other day and they had some small gift sets and some eyeshadow brushes (which were sold out)

Will target have a bigger range eventually?

Thanks!! I actually saw that earlier today and couldn't believe I got my wish, LOL. It took months for us to get the first lot of Studio products, so I'm suprised that now we seem to have the full range. I have to wait another couple of weeks as I've blown this month's makeup budget on MAC Holiday, but then I'll be doing a massive ELF Studio haul

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I recently did a general video review of ELF's main line for YouTube, soooo...I'll summarize my general opinions on their products (excluding the mineral and studio lines, and certain newer products):

HATE:

-- Almost all of their skin care products. They are always either really dry and cakey or super-oily. I threw out their foundation stick and I have no clue why I keep their hydrotint and concealer, which I bought last year...they're AWFUL. Plus, their lightest tone is too dark for me, and I don't even think I'm that fair!

-- Their pressed eyeshadows. Next to no color payoff, give or take a few colors. You REALLY have to pack the shadow on, and it never stays for me. :/ But granted, I like looking like a drag queen. :P

MEH:

-- Most of their lip products. Their hypershine glosses have no color whatsoever and are slightly sticky, so it kind of annoys me that I bought 4 expecting slight tints of color. Also, their liquid lipsticks are okay, depending on what you want, but very sheer.

-- Their blush. GORGEOUS colors, easy to blend, but they are way too soft and powdery. They break at the drop of a hat...I have to buy a new Glow and hope it doesn't burst in the mail, cause I love it.

-- The eyeliner pencils have some decent colors and glide pretty well, but the colors never show up as bright on my skin as they are in the actual pencil, and they fade really easily.

LOVE:

-- I could NOT live without their pressed powder and blotter sheets. Those are the two skin products from the main line that I think are an absolute steal. I use a kabuki brush rather than the provided powder puff for the powder, but other than that, it is so soft and light and blendable and WONDERFUL! The lightest tone matches my skin perfectly. And the blotter sheets? I rip them in to 4 pieces each, which unless you have oily skin is more than enough...I use them all the time in the summer and before photo shoots.

-- Shimmering facial whips! OMG! I am buying more ASAP! They're multipurpose, but I always use them as blushes. Bright, beautiful, dewy colors that are easy to blend! I have Lilac Petal and Persimmon, and I'm thinking of buying some of the more peachy colors.

-- I bought 5 or 6 of the soothing lip glosses back in 2003 and they are STILL going strong! Grape chill has separated a bit because it isn't matte, but I just mix the brush around a bit and it looks fine. Chai is my go-to nude gloss and I'm almost out of it, so I think I'll cry. D: I think the new SPF15...whatever...glosses may be the same product, just re-packaged...can anybody vouche for that? (The soothing glosses were relatively opaque, slightly minty, and not at all sticky.)

-- Almost all of their brushes are awesome. Their foundation brush is my faaaaavorite!

Again, lots of stuff I haven't tried and should, namely their mineral booster and stuff from the studio line, cause I hear tons about it. Generally speaking, I love their products, there are just a few I'll never buy again. :P

Oh, and a random note: I've heard from several people that buying straight from their website means superior quality over store-bought items, especially their brushes. I'm not sure if that's true, but I always buy from the site, and the brushes are always soft and the products are just as I expected.

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

Hey everyone,
I wanted to let Canadians know that Giant Tiger is now carrying ELF products! I was there today and got a couple things They had an eye palette, lip palette, and a lot of other sets, some for lips, some for eyes, or a mixture. The prices are comparable since on the site it is $US and we pay shipping. For example a set with 3 products was $3.97 and a set with 5 products was $5.97. I don't recall how much the palettes were, sorry! Even the cashier was intrigued and said she wanted to check them out herself as well!
Here is a link to the stores website for reference: Giant Tiger

i ordered it, but i just got my shipping confirmation today (i placed the order sunday night!) and it said that hd powder was out of stock so they credited it back to my card but i did get the new mineral primer also so im still excited about that!
post #226 of 477

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

the HD powder IMO is great, it's just as finely milled as MUFE.
post #227 of 477

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I wanted to order the HD powder, but it's out of stock in the UK already. Boo. At least I got a free Studio Mini Makeup palette though

Has anyone tried the Studio Pressed Powder? I can hardly find any reviews. It says on the ELF website it can be applied wet for more coverage, which makes it sound more like a foundation.

RetailMeNot.com has a ton of great ELF coupons. I depend on that site.

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

Okay, after reading everything you guys have said, I'm making my first ELF order.
I've gotten a couple brushes [eyeshadow, eyeliner I think?, all-over face, and the eyelash curler] LOVE the eyeshadow & curler. The face brush was a bit too loose for my liking, but maybe I'm just doin' it wrong. The eyeliner brush ... I just didn't like. Have discovered it's amazing for blending out NYX jumbo pencils, tho.

Am ordering :
Basic Browns mineral eyeshadow kit [three eyeshadows, two brushes, and an eyeliner for like $12 before discount? Sweet.]
Blending brush
Mineral bronzer
Mineral blush in coral
and an eyeliner sharpener XD

All for $16.45 with shipping after that DELIGHTFUL 75% off coupon.
Will let you ladies know what I think :]

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I received my order yesterday.

The brow shaping kit is fab but I'll need to practice with it.

The lip liner I chose is darker thank I thought it would be (its called "something" mauve" buts nice and goes with some lipsticks I have.

The lip primer and plumper is good, not sure it plumps much and the whole end fell out when I opened it but it's ok, the primer does what I need it to.

Mineral eye primer seems ok, I haven't really had a good test yet.

Stunning lipstick in Pouty Petal which is a perfect nude pink on me. Lovely! All for less than a tenner!

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I bought the HD powder from ELF, but I am nervous to try it because I heard that people were using the CS silica powder as a replacement for the MUFE HD powder and some have mentioned that the silica is damaging to your face.

Do ELF products pass US beauty products policies? I still think its too good to be true. How on earth do they make money with their items being so darn cheap? I feel like they have some child slave labor camp somewhere because their prices are just ridiculously cheap.

Thanks! That's good to know. Usually I'd have to go to Winners to try and find some ELF products, and there's not a lot to choose from.

ELF trumps CS anyday. This is their own brand, and they're not resellers. How they make money doesn't really matter does it? But if you MUST know, they rarely advertise, and they have loyal customers, and ppl order loads of stuff all the time.

The HD powder can only be as dangerous as Smashbox Photofinish is or MUFE HD powder. The silica in cosmetics is hydrated silica..the dangerous one which ruins the skin and lungs is crystalline silica. It has many of the same ingredients as those type of primers(all the -cones), as opposed to water based primers. Some girls have been mixing the HD powder with their moisturizers and making their own primers with it.




I'm so excited for my first ELF order.I got a Complexion brush from the Studio line and the HD Powder.Shipping was quick I ordered it on the 21st and it's due to arrive soon.I haven't really seen any women of color using the HD powder, so I'm looking to see how that fairs out on our skin since it is supposed to be translucent.

studio ^

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I absolutely love elf. Their studio line is my fave followed by the mineral line. I also get more satisfaction purchasing elf since I can get so much for so little. The mineral e/s are my fave (earthy is gorgeous). The mineral lipsticks have a great texture. The brushes are better than sephora but not as good as mac. I love how they have a lot of tools like train cases, sponges, brush bags etc
