Mini e.l.f Haul – First Impression


Hello Beautiful Souls,

Excited to share some products from e.l.f that I recently purchased from Target. Some products are new where as some you guys might have seen or even used. I really love all the products of e.l.f either its packaging or its price!13452956_641643725987753_1549338032_o

I also purchased some other products from Target but thought just to show the e.l.f products that I purchased. I don’t like ending up making this blog too much of everything.

 

e.l.f HD Powder

The e.l.f. High Definition Powder is a translucent, versatile loose powder that creates a flawless, “soft focus” effect to the skin. Masks fine lines and imperfections for a glowing, radiant complexion. This incredibly soft and invisible powder is ideal for everyday wear, either alone or over your favorite e.l.f. foundation.’

This 6$ drug store product is just amazing because it is suitable for all kind of skin, even the sensitive types. This is silicone-based, sheer powder with a weightlessly smooth texture that practically disappears on skin. It has a whitish color and not nude which is again raise this question whether to buy this not? Corrective Yellow is fine for (light to medium skin tones) and the Shimmer shade is best reserved for highlighting your key areas rather than dusting all over the face.  I love that it has no color to it – I’ve found some translucent powders (like physicians formula) aren’t really translucent, but make you tan or orangey.As the product says the skin really feels smooth and looks refined but does not soak excessive oil on your face or set the make up.

The packing looks really classy but not great to take in your bag. I would have really loved if it had a small mirror in it but you can’t have everything 🙂

Baked Highlighter

Company’s Description

‘Create a radiant glow with this illuminating powder that highlights the skin with a sheer wash of shimmering color. Infused with Vitamin E, Jojoba, Sunflower, Apricot and Grape to nourish and hydrate the skin. The long-lasting baked shimmering color can be applied wet for a vibrant effect or dry for sheer pigmentation.’

Talk about a bargain! This 3$ baked highlighter is a steal 🙂 I bought the ‘blush gems’ but there are other shades available. Moonlight Pearl is a light cream color and Pink Diamonds is a pink toned shade. All three have that traditional domed shape that comes with baked products. You will get a decent amount of product with these and each one is about the size of  a Milani Baked Blush.

If you talk about the packing its the usual black base and plastic one. Not that sturdy or classy I would say! This is compact, small and travel friendly but one has to be very careful with the top may break if little bit extra pressure is applied.

Blush Gems is a champagne/medium brown shade and I am completely blown away by how beautiful this was and how great it looked on my skin. I am using it every single day 🙂 I felt the texture is really smooth and blends nicely in the skin when applied. I did not find it chalky at all and not even chunks of glitter in it. Its a fine shimmers that give you that perfect spark of glow when it contacts with the light.  The down side to this is that if you have uneven skin, this type of powder will emphasize the uneven finish. It also doesn’t pair well with oily skin. The brush you use will be able to hold the product well in the 1st go and one sweep decently covers the highlighting points of the face. When I use it I prefer using my hands. You can also use if for your eyes (wet/dry)

e.l.f Brushes

If you are on a budget or you are a beginner, e.l.f brushes are just for you. I was running out on my brushes so I bought these. These were just 3$ but they are extremely well made. They have a strong handle and very well crafted. The bristles are very soft yet dense have absolutely no shedding. They take to a good washing well and bounce right back to their original shape. They apply product just as well as any of my more expensive brushes. So far, so good and I am very happy with it.

e.l.f Eye Primer & Liner Sealer

Another interesting product worth 3$! Here is what the product claims

The Prime side sets your eyeshadow in so your color won’t fade, bleed or crease. The Liner side transforms your favorite eye shadow into a waterproof, smudge-proof liquid liner with this unique clear liquid and built-in felt tip precision eyeliner brush. Now you can have your eye makeup lasting longer for no fuss no budge color.

Haven’t used this enough to comment much about this. Have used the primer but I am not that happy with it.  It’s quite dry so it pulls on the eyelid and goes on unevenly. So this product can works wonder for oil skin.

The packing is really cute and sleek. One side you will get the primer and other the liner sealer. Have used the sealer once and it really holds the liner together. Its too early to say that I love this but you can give it try.

Hope you have enjoyed reading this and let me know if you have any questions 🙂

Lots of love
