Let's get to know ELF (Mini Reviews)

E.L.F.
(aka. "Eyes Lips Face")
(aka. JA Cosmetics)






ELF has really expanded their line as of recently, most impressively their Studio Lines has grown with some interesting colours and packaging. (A good choice with the matte black.) If you remember, I picked up some of them to test out including their new cream eyeshadows and blushers....now its time for a review!




ELF HAUL















E.L.F. Liquid Eyeshadows
*Mocha Madness & Berrylicious*
ELF Liquid Eyeshadow

  • Applies like a light cream even slightly watery when spread out.
  • Dries VERY fast thus alittle hard to blend.
  • Above average long lasting ability for a cream/liquid shadow.
  • Incredibly pigmented!

E.L.F. Cream Eyeshadows (Studio Line)
*Bronzed & Dawn*
ELF Cream Eyeshadow



  • WOW pigmentation!
  • Easy to blend but not quite as creamy as MAC Paintpots.
  • Impressively long lasting, dries with matte feel and is non-sticky.
  • Best applied with fingers to really warm the product.



ELF Studio Cream Shadows

E.L.F. Cream Blush (Studio Line)
*Flirt & Heartbreaker*
ELF Cream Blush


  • NOT Creamy but more of a spongy mousse texture.
  • Dries matte/powdery on the skin, seems to be great for summer or oily skins.
  • Great pigmentation that is easy to work with (not too sheer, not too strong)
  • A stippling brush or sponge will be your best choice for application.

E.L.F. Eyebrow Kit (Studio Line?)
*Ash*
ELF Eyebrow kit

  • Medium pigmentation, no fears of over application.
  • A great mixture between waxy & creamy
  • 4-5 shades to choose from, the darker colours seem better than the lighter ones
  • Not a big different between the wax & brow colour

E.L.F. Shimmering Facial Whip
*Lillac Petal & Spotlight*
ELF Shimmering Facial Whip

  • More shimmery at first glance but much more subtle when blended out.
  • Thicker texture but not sticky or oily when dried.
  • Can be used as eyeshadow or highlighter.
  • WHY the Mineral oil???? Seriously, in a face product?

  1. I tried the E.L.F. nail polishes at Target and returned them, chipped in like an hour with my favorite Sally Hansen top coat
