Elf Cosmetics is one of those hit and miss brands. Some of their products are good and some are quite awful. Today, I have a few Elf purchases to share and I’m happy to report that they are all fairly good.
I found this product fairly good. I spritzed my face after my makeup was done and my makeup lasted a decent amount of time in the desert heat. The only downfall is that the spray pump doesn’t spray as fine a mist as the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray so you end up a bit soaked. I just turn the blow dryer on my face for a few seconds to dry the setting spray.
2. Elf Studio Blush Palette in Light – $6.00 (sold out on Elf web site, available at Target)
I’ve seen a few reviews on this blush palette and wanted to give it a try. The colors are quite nice and pigmented, but have a dry and powdered consistency. I didn’t find this a problem upon application and the blush wore well through out the day. The only color that I found a bit odd is the 1st row, 2nd color. The color is a rust / orange and I found it a bit off for a blush and wouldn’t use it as a bronzer.
My surprise purchase was the Elf EX-tra lip gloss. Love this gloss! It’s super pigmented, almost like a liquid lipstick, only there’s no dry down time and the product remains glossy. Per the Elf web site, the lip gloss is “enriched with A&E, cocoa butter, sunflower, avocado and grape to nourish and protect the lips”. There were limited colors at Target, but there are seven colors available on the Elf web site.
