I've tried quite a few things from elf cosmetics (eyes, lips, face) and I have to say I've never been disappointed. I know they say you get what you pay for but that doesnt apply to elf products because you dont pay much at all but you get a LOT in my opinion. They have two main price ranges, their normal line in which everything costs £1.50 and their Studio or professional line in which most things cost £3.50. Great company for makeup newbies and young girls on a budget because their stuff is actually really really good yet doesnt cost much so its great for experimenting with colour and technique without the fear of ruining your £26 Estee Lauder lipstick
Now elf aren't sold in stores so the only way to order is online which means an extra postage and packaging fee but they often have free shipping codes on their facebook fanpage along with great competitions and regular sales. Check out their facebook fanpage HERE and 'Like' for amazing deals...go on, you know you want to...
My recommendations from elf include:
Elf Natural Radiance Blusher - £1.50. Great range of colours, great price tag. They add the perfect amount of colour to the face and can be left quite light and natural or built up for a more night time appropriate look
Elf Studio Cream Eyeliner - £3.50. Great colours and easy to work with. I was totally converted from my liquid eyeliner with this so much so I had to have every colour. Does anybody else have the same problem? Once you've tried something and know it works be it makeup, clothes or shoes...you just have to have every colour? Even if the Teal Cream eyeliner will just never get used and it'll probably sit in your makeup collection for years catching dust, you just have to have it because the black, midnight and brown ones were amazing? I hope it's not just me! hehe. It comes with a little brush which is good for beginners with little to no tools however I prefer using my elf angled liner brush with this product
Studio Matte Lip colours - £3.50. Love the natural colour range and the sleek packaging. They great for on the go and wont break the bank....well nothing from elf will really! I love the matte lip colour look and feel the glossy wet look lip is a bit outdated right now. Matte lips look a bit more sophisticated you could say, just my opinion but wet glossy lips was ok for when I was 14 but 10 years on...im ditching the gloss for a more 'grown up' look. To avoid drying of the lips bung on a bit of vaseline (or your equivelent) 5 minutes before applying
Well these are just a few picks for now, I'm sure it's not the first elf review you've read and i'm dead certain it wont be the last but I'm a new blogger and what do new bloggers do? we review good cheap makeup for other new bloggers! haha
