E.L.F Cosmetics - Page 8

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

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I've just ordered my first ELF products.

Eyeshadow primer
Lip Primer
A lipstick
A Lip liner
Eyebrow kit

I'm hoping they all do a good job but if not, it's not like I will have lost much money!

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

the HD powder IMO is great, it's just as finely milled as MUFE.

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.

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

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I love ELF products, mostly all of their studio line stuff and their compact and brushes. They're so cheap and overall pretty good quality. On top of that, there are always promotions and coupon codes (I always look at retailmenot.com). When I need a makeup fixx I always buy ELF products online since it satisfies me and doesn't leave me broke!

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I hated the eyeshadows I got from them, I ended up giving them to my little sister. This was before they came out with their whole mineral line though. However, I was quite impressed with their brushes. For a dollar, they are pretty great.

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

For those that are interested, e.l.f is having a number of great deals right now on their website.

Quote:
Enter code 'EGBRU' on orders $25 or more to receive a free 12pc. brush set.

Enter code 'STUDIOSAVE' to get 50% off of their studio items.

Enter code 'MIN50' to recieve 50% off of their Mineral makeup.
Course I just received all of that via email but the Mineral makeup one says it expires today so I'm not sure if its still active but the studio one is an awesome deal for anyone who wants their 11pc. brush set, I'm trying to look into getting it. Hope this helps some people!

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

Can you use only one coupon code or can you use all? I really want stuff from the mineral and the studio lines!

My e.l.f Studio 'HAULS' post.

http://www.specktra.net/forum/f195/s...1/#post1884040

STUDIO e.l.f.



I ordered a small amount of STUDIO e.l.f. products by mail & wanted to share what I bought. These are new e.l.f. products for me as I had never ordered any of the STUDIO line. Order total including shipping was $39.85 US.

Order as they appear on *swatch*:

1) Mineral Infused Face Primer $6
2) Eye Brow Kit in Medium $3 *brow wax, brow powder*
3) Eyeliner & Shadow Stick in Black/Smoke $3 *Smoke E/S, Black eye liner*
4) Cream Eyeliner $3 *Black*
5) Creme Eyeliner $3 *Ivory*
6) Waterproof Eyeliner Pen $1 *Black* (not from STUDIO line)
7) 2 in 1 Conditioning Gloss *Supermodel*
8) Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths $3 (see photo)
9) Small Angle Brush (see photo)

Reviews & ratings: 0 = Skip it! 5=Take it or leave it! 10=GET IT NOW!

1) Nice dupe for Smashbox Photo Finish. Goes on smooth, performed well under my Studio Fix powder. Rating > 10
2) Very nice powder & wax set. Wax holds brows in place nicely. Powder is smooth & nicely pigmented. Rating > 10
3) Color pay-off on both is VERY nice. Black liner is really intense, but tends to smear. Shadow side goes on smooth, beautiful charcoal grey (like M A C Knight Divine) but tends to crease though well primed. Rating > 5
4) Now these I LOVE! The Black is very intense & glides on smoothly. After it set, it would not budge even when I rubbed firmly. Had a time removing it (see Remover cloths review) This liner is amazing! Rating > 10
5) Same as liner above. The Ivory is very creamy and goes on nicely. Nice pay-off and dried to a very long-lasting eyeliner. Rating > 10
6) I usually don't like the pen-type liners but this one is a winner, especially for the price. Very intense black with a nice consistency & dries to a long-lasting eyeliner. Love this thing! Rating > 10
7) Very impressed by this gloss. Nice shimmer, (not glittery) wet-look high gloss shine- yet not sticky. Feels very nice on the lips. I will get more colors of these. Rating > 10
8) The softest makeup remover cloth I have EVER used. Pleasant, mild scent, nice & moist. Removed face, cheek & lip products very well. Removes most eye products very well, except for the STUDIO e.l.f. Cream Liner! Also, did not irritate but left my contact lenses cloudy for a bit.
9) Well, based on this one I WILL BE ORDERING ALL OF THE STUDIO e.l.f. BRUSHES! It is very well made, feels nice & sturdy. Very precisely formed & cut Taklon fibers lends to a clean, crisp eye line. LOVE! Rating > 10

To conclude, I am extremely happy with Eyes, Lips, Face's products. This STUDIO Line seems to be a real winner!!!

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I have to say I love ELFs studio line brushes - they're SO soft for the price. It's fantastic.

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics

I am in love with E.L.F's studio line............the flat powder brush has replaced my 187 for applying foundation, it works like a dream!

I also love their bronzers and blushers and the lipglosses i have tried haven't been bad either!

Re: E.L.F Cosmetics
