ELF Face cleanser Review and yet ANOTHER mini haul [hehe ;)]


Another e.l.f. Haul!! YAY!! I really love elf products and I find myself going from window shopping to actually purchasing EVERYTHING I SEE AGGHH I GOTTTA STOP!!! ahhhh!!
I purchased a few things for refill purposes mainly- the concealer, and the gold eyeliner (pic above) are refills and I  think I have reviewed the concealer before so there's no need for another one.

e.l.f. Essential Brightening Eye Liner


Claim: The rich gel-powder formulation of our Brightening Eye Liners instantly brighten eyes for a healthy, radiant look. These liners glide on smooth without tugging the delicate eye area. Pair with your favorite e.l.f. eyeshadows andmascara for gorgeous, defined eyes
My Opinion: Pretty Ok. I think it’s a little light, but it does its job well, I use it to line my under eye area and brighten it.

e.l.f. Mineral Face Cleanser


Claim: Indulge your skin in rich cleansing moisture for a noticeably brighter and smooth complexion. The water-activated, powder based cleanser works to clean and exfoliate the skin for a beautiful healthy glow. Infused with active minerals and skin nourishing ingredients Aloe, Green Tea, Jojoba Avocado and Vitamin E, this gentle and calming cleanser revitalizes skin for a younger looking feel.



My Opinion: reminds me of baking soda, will give u a fresh clean without the abrasiveness, very gentle on the skin. Its also pretty fun to use. I love using it every night after taking off my makeup, it deep cleanses (doesn’t take off makeup though) without drying out excessively. Perfect for all skin types. Even after use and toning, my skin didn’t feel irritated.

e.l.f. Studio Stipple Brush


Claim: This new antibacterial, synthetic haired Taklon brush is softer and more absorbent and can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. Studio brush! The layered bristles create a soft airbrushed look that's perfect for applying foundation or adding color definition to cheekbones or highlighting with soft layers. Use this brush with any liquid or powder face product such as foundation, blush or bronzer to build your coverage from sheer to heavy.
My Opinion: I don’t know if it is the brush itself or all, stippling brushes, but I just realized…my skin is too sensitive to stipple :( after using it my face turns red (under light makeup) and starts to itch. The brushes are OK for the price, although quite defective.. After washing it (once a week for like  a month) one of them came apart from the wood handle (the good one-left (pic above)) I also have a “bad” one which the white part wasn’t in the middle (pic below) so it didn’t stipple well, and I had to rearrange it, and its still not as good as the good one…which now has a broken handle….I am becoming a little wary of the brushes I use on my face because my skin is getting really sensitive to them, and now that I use them more often, I have to use really really soft bristles for no irritation. I cant even use my elf kabuki brush anymore because although it is kind-of soft, the bristles have sharp ends and they cause irritation as well.
Since this is my first stipple brush I do not know what to base the rating off of, sadly. I might try two or three more different brands and then use this one as a baseline probably. Stippling is nice, you get that beautiful even look with minimal amount of foundation, I still use the brush, but only to re-blend, retouch lightly during the day. or blend the edges of my blush.

e.l.f. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder


Claim: This light-diffusing powder camouflages fine lines, dark circles and imperfections, perfect for on camera or everyday wear. The silky powder adds a velvety finish ideal for wearing alone or setting in cream concealer. The Vitamin C & K infused formula helps to restore and strengthen skin for a revitalized appearance.


My Opinion: truly it does what it claims but I noticed a close-up of it. It had tiny pink glitter particles, which is not exactly bad but it did not match with my yellow undertone which sucked because it ended up making my under eyes look darker instead. I recommend it for those with pink undertones, those with yellow….stay away…run.

e.l.f. Studio Waterproof Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara


Claim: Achieve thicker, fuller, and longer lashes that are beautiful and natural. The enlarged brush coats your lashes evenly for an enhanced appeal. The unique formula is clump free and quick drying so you can have color that stays on all day with no smudging and no flaking. Waterproof, tear-proof and sweat proof for a look that lasts against all odds.


My Opinion: clumps clumps clumps. I cannot stand clumps! ever since I started using Maybelline full n soft it is hard to find a mascara that doesn’t clump, and separates, yet gives nice looking lashes. The thing is I am currently looking for a mascara that lengthens but doesn’t clump and is waterproof as well. Full n soft only volumizes and I swear by that mascara because it doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes as others do. plus it looks soooo natural and hydrates my lashes. I cannot do ANY clumpy mascaras because later in the day, they start to fall in my eyes..and my GAWD the BURN is unbearable!

e.l.f. Essential Nourishing Cuticle Pen


Review of the nail polish remover pad [here]

Claim: Relieves dry nails and flakey cuticles in a convenient pen design. The Nourishing Cuticle Pen moisturizes cuticles effectively and the quick dry formula allows for a no mess application. Fortified with Vitamins E, A, C, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Aloe, this fast-acting complex deeply hydrates, nourishes and seals in moisture. The key ingredients Avocado and Almond Oils help to condition nails and cuticles for improved appearance. The result is softer, easy to manage cuticles and healthy hydrated nails.
My Opinion: I love this pen. It is one of my favorites for a perfect manicure :p to see my mani routine click here. I use it all the time for a quick moisture to my nails, it smells amazing and it makes my nails soft and hydrated. my only downside of it is that before it dries out the chisel tip becomes loose, so I usually use the loose tip ones on my nail bed and buy a new one for my cutiles. its only one buck…so yeah I guess I expected that…

e.l.f. Essential Natural Lash Kit


Claim: No mess, no hassle - just naturally beautiful lashes! Get full lashes for any occasion with our top-rated Natural Lash Kit. Easy application and comfort grip gel allows for multiple uses so you can achieve natural looking lush lashes again and again.


My Opinion: these are my first lashes, so I have nothing to compare it with –____- oh well. They're kinda OK they're one buck so they're not even or very “natural” like but they look OK in my opinion. I really don’t know how to wear them though. lol. The glue that came with it is is hard to deal with, takes a while to dry. I have been eyeing a lot of falsies on imomoko and PC. I tried these because they were cheap and IDK if I would be sensitive to Falsies in general so I didn’t wanna waste money. These lashes are reusable, I soaked them in eye makeup remover and antibacterial Hand soap and then face wash and they were as good as new.
