I had a discount coupon to use at ELF and tried quiet a few products from the Studio and Mineral line.
I’ve purchased an assortment of different items from e.l.f. since the launch, and have found the quality to be very mixed.The Essentials line is their original $1 items. The Studio line is of generally better quality, and the Minerals line is, well, mineral makeup!
The things that I loved:
1. The Kabuki Face Brush:
It is soft and really fluffy, and feels lovely and is only $ 6
2. The Brush Shampoo for only $ 3
3. Eyebrow Lifter and Filler for only $ 3.
This eyebrow is a stick with a highlighter on one end and a filler on another. (the cap has a sharpener) I like this product a lot, the lifter blends well and works very well ! The Filler is good too, but you have to be careful with application.
4. Shine Eraser blotting paper $1
What I really Hated:
1. The Mineral Eyeshadow
The eyeshadow is not so well pigmented and really hard to blend in !
2. The Eye Shadow brush
This was my biggest disappointment ! The eye shadow brush does not help in blending and is so difficult to use !
3. Lipsticks from Studio Line
These lipsticks make my lips look cakey ! It creased it my lips even after applying some lip balm before the lipstick!
My feelings on e.l.f. is that most of the products aren’t worth even the low price point. There are a few great products in the brand, mainly sold under the Studio line, but with so many duds, it’s hard to recommend e.l.f. except for a few specific products. Unless someone has given a very specific recommendation for something in the e.l.f. line, I’d suggest saving your cash and looking elsewhere.
Any body with similar experiences?
