♡ elf hits



Elf products are usually a hit or a miss for me. Despite my rather disappointing online custormer service I still don't mind trying whatever products I can find at any local Grocery Store that carries elf. (Target, Meijer) They're are a few things that I really wouldn't mind ordering offline, and they usually have some pretty great deals and coupon codes every now and then. Elf products are super inexpensive and I love the blushes.

As for misses I figured I'd do that in a complete separate post. With elf products I get a little nervous because a few things here and their have really broke me out and it wasn't pretty. All of these products I've had for quite some time now so I've got a good feel of them and safely they don't bother my skin.

Brushes

Complexion Brush: This synthetic hair'd brush works great when applying a setting powder, or a bronzer. I love how soft the brush is, although it isn't my favorite brush but it does a pretty great job.

Powder Brush: This brush is my favorite elf brush. It works great to use on its side to contour your cheeks. 


Blushing bronzing and blending angled brush: This brush works great for smaller areas, your crease. 


Blending brush: works great to add color to the V area.


Blushers


Giddy Gold: this color is great when going for a little more subtle look, very pretty mixing with other colors, or to even use as a highlight.


Candid Coral: This might be my favorite. I do have two, a full one and one in the contouring duo that has a really pretty bronzer. Its a gorgeous pinky peach color perfect for the summer and is suppose to be a dupe of Nars orgasm.


Fushia Fusion: This is a really pretty baby pink, I don't have any pinks like this and if your just looking for a flush of color this is perfect for that.


Other


Eyebrow kit: I have the color medium. Its my favorite brow color I've ever used. Its very natural and matches perfectly. This does include a waxy darker brown color, and a lighter powdery brown. 


Eyelashes in natural and dramatic: Both are great, the dramatic lashes are great for a night look. I have very thin short lashes so the dramatic are great for a more bold eye. The natural eyes are perfect for a day look.


Elf set and mist: This is wonderful when you need to refresh, or set your makeup. It does have aloe and vitamin a, c and e.


Brush Shampoo: This shampoo works great for face, or eye brushes. 


Mineral Infused Primer: This is one of my favorite primers. It gives you a smooth flawless finish before you apply your foundation filling in your fine lines, and pores. This primer is very mattifying and doesn't clog my pores.


Compact: This compact is very durable, and very handy. They're super cheap and it even fits your Mac eyeshadows. 


Makeup Removing clothes: I love to use these before I cleanse my face. It doesn't leave a greasy film on my face, and it works fabulous.


Eye Makeup Remover Wipes: These are simple, and works super fast to swipe off any waterproof mascara.


Nail Polish Remover Wipes: I love to put these in my purse, just in case my nail chips while I'm out and about I can easily remove my polish so I'm not looking  a hot mess.


Lip definer, and shaper: I wasn't really feeling this product at first but now I actually really enjoy it. One end is a nude color to line your lips to make them appear fuller, the other end has a highlight color great for your cupids bow.


Lips


Classy lipstick although I've only used this once its still a great color, and looks really pretty on. I just have so many others that are very similar that I like much more. The color is a gorgeous mauve color. 


Flirtacious: This is a really pretty hot pink. I don't use this one to much either because I have a few hot pinks but these are very moisturizers and really looks great.


Luscious liquid lipstick: This is the color baby pink, I LOVE this I use this a lot and its the perfect on the go baby pink. 


What's your favorite elf products?

  5. I've only ever tried one product from them as elf isn't widely available here in Australia. I've only tried the all over cover stick as a concealer and loved it. That blush/bronzer duo looks lovely.

  6. The flat top powder brush is the best! I use it to put on my foundation. I also love their dramatic lashes and they are only a dollar! Can't beat that. :)

  9. Totally agree with you on Elf products. Espesh with lots of recent 50% off a lot of people tend to purchase EVERYTHING and then only really love and use a few. I love the blush and contour and the minieral primer and of course the brushes!

  10. I love Elf! I've had a few things that were total misses, but most of the things I've tried have been great. I love their Kabuki brush.

  11. I find elf to be a hit or miss too. I like their blushers. Have yet to experience their brushes.

    I don't really care for their eyeshadows or brush shampoo

  13. Awesome stuff!! Love ELF Blush and Brushes!

    I realized you asked about Bobbi Brown's foundation.. the one I use is the Moisture Rich Foundation because I have dry skin and it's unbelievably moisturizing... although I believe I had read that you have oily skin. Correct me if I am wrong so I can continue to help you..

    Lets just say you do have oily skin.. the foundation I use will not help you.. BUT luckily Bobbi Brown has a foundation called Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation SPF 15. It's for oily/combination skin. I'd say to check that out. Its long lasting and will leave a matte finish. Doesnt hurt to grab a sample or two and go from there!

    Keep me posted!
