Hi guys! I`m sure you all know about the makeup brand "elf" (short for eyes, lips, face). Many people rave about the brand because it offers decent quality makeup for very little cost. Their makeup starts at just one dollar! However, before you go blow a bunch of $ on all the makeup you could possibly want, let me warn you about a few products from the brand. elf can be an iffy brand because some products are AMAZING, but some... well, they aren`t so hot.
1. All over color stick
really awkward to use, hard to blend, very cakey. Although it gives good coverage, it isn`t creamy enough to use easily. And, it`s a weird size- to small to use as foundation, to big to use as a concealer stick. Not a good buy.
2. Undereye concealer/highlighter duo wand
This product has two sides- one with the concealer (which i actually LOVE) and the other side with a liquid highlight. I really hate the highlight. :( It fades in 30 seconds and gives no glow, and if you try to put more on it looks like a ton of concentrated shimmer on your face. Stay away from it!
3. essential line brushes
I hated both the bronzing brush AND total face brush. Both were scratchy and broke within a week. Also, their brush hairs were very flimsy and hard to work with. I`d spend my money on a little more expensive brushes. It DOES make a difference. Right now, I`m sticking to ecotools, which are still cheap, but much better quality!
4. small eyeshadow quad
I have mine in the color "Butternut" and although I like the colors themselves, the fallout of the shadows is quite frustrating. Although it was only a dollar, there are many drugstore brand eyeshadows that are extremely cheap too and will provide much better quality. Wet n` Wild as well as Covergirl make great eyeshadows!
So far these are the products from elf that I regret getting due to their lame quality. However, don`t stray from the brand-- I do love a lot of their products too!
