EyesLipsFace review

I have to admit that it's easy to be skeptical about quality cosmetics at such an affordable price ($1+). I know that I am not the first blogger to sing the praises of EyesLipsFace (E.L.F) cosmetics...but I am definitely joining that list of happy bloggers in love with ELF! I reviewed the following products:

All Over Cover Stick in "Fair"
This one matches my skin tone very well, it works great as a primer or if you're like me and only use concealer where needed and typically skip foundation. It covers dark circles, blemish, and any facial redness just to name a few of its many purposes.

Studio Brush 10 piece set
People always stress the importance of using good brushes, and with that being said, I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever. My favorite one is "Powder brush". It looks similar to the MAC #187 brush and has the same purpose. My MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in "Petticoat" glides on beautifully with this brush, and it blends so easily and seamlessly. Normally, I have to blend a little bit with my finger sometimes, but there was none of that with these brushes.

Studio Eyeliner & Eyeshadow Stick in "Smoke"
This is a great product with "2 in 1" packaging. The shadow part of "smoke" reminds me of MAC's discontinued shadestick in "Sharkskin". The eyeliner part is a black shade, that glides on the lash line or waterline with such ease and very little effort on your part.

Get The Look set in "Smokey Eyes"
Everybody loves the look of smokey eyes, although sometimes it's not so easy to know which products will work and the order in which they are applied. This set includes easy to follow instructions, eyeliner, mascara duo, an eyeshadow quad featuring dark grey/black shades. Also, this kit includes a smudge brush to smudge your way to smokey perfection! Black makes an interesting contrast to brown eyes, especially in pictures. For some reason, it really ignites the golden flecks in my eyes.

Mineral Lipstick in "Barely Bitten"
This color is a beautiful and natural medium to darker pinky coral. I love pinky corals, they're a "must" for red hair! The staying power is great, it is very easily to apply, the colors aren't too opaque to the point of not being able to apply without a mirror. They're sheer, but not too sheer. But beautiful none the less.

Super Glossy Lip Shine in "Watermelon"
This color is a cute, fun, slightly frosty pink (but not an unattractive kind of frosty). It's a pretty youthful color, and I think this lipgloss lasts a pretty long time after it's applied. It doesn't feel sticky or heavy, either!

Luscious Liquid Lipstick in "Ruby Slipper"
It smells great, like mint and vanilla. It feels cool and slightly tingly, the moisture properties are impressive and the color is a gorgeous sheer golden red. Love love love.

Sooo what are you waiting for?
