Friday Favorites: e.l.f. Cosmetics


I have LOVED e.l.f. brand makeup for years. e.l.f. makes great products that are affordable and easy to apply. Lucky me: they just opened up an e.l.f. store right around the corner from my home so I had to go check it out. I was able to leave the store with a full bag… without breaking the bank! e.l.f. helps me achieve a healthy complexion and flawless looks!

Want to know some of my all-time favorite e.l.f. finds?

e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick (in Marsala Blush)

I’m a strong believer of lipstick. You are never fully dressed without some color on your lips! I have been searching for the perfect color for forever… and I’ve found it!! e.l.f’s moisturizing lipstick is wonderful. It keeps my lips moisturized and stays on all day. Also, the lipstick design is so sleek and tiny that it looks like super high-end 😉

e.l.f. Foundation Serum

I was surprised by the foundation’s consistency when I first got it! It is so light and soft that it makes my skin feel awesome. Of course I have it in nude because I’m super pale… but the employees in the store can help you choose what color matches best. It can easily mask any dark spots and blemishes you may have.

e.l.f. Mascara

I typically use two mascaras in my makeup routine. But when I’m in a rush I stick with e.l.f.! Their mascara gives my lashes a very feminine and flirty look. The mascara’s application wand keeps the mascara from clumping while also pushing the lashes up! 100% worth its 5$ price-tag!

e.l.f. Stippling Brush

I never used brushes before my current job. A make-up sin, I know. I just didn’t. I’m not really sure how I was living before then. The e.l.f. stippling brush creates a smooth, even finish. I have not cleaned it yet but I’ll let you know how it holds up once I do! 

e.l.f. Perfect Finish HD Powder

I AM OBSESSED. I have never had a finishing powder or spray that does what e.l.f.’s Perfect Finish HD Powder does. My makeup lasts throughout the day (and into the night) and it erases any flaws/lines! It comes with a sponge and mirror for application. It looks like my face was airbrushed on and smoother than a baby’s bottom.

e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer

When I wake up, this primer is one of the first things I apply. The Mineral Infused Face Primer preps your face for the day. It fills in any lines and corrects any discoloring I may have. Unlike some other primers I’ve had, It doesn’t feel oily and stays put.

Have you tried e.l.f. Cosmetics before? What did you think?

    I love their waterproof mascara! I was surprised at how much I liked it because it only cost $3! I’m all about some cheap makeup, that’s also awesome!

    I’m a jealous! You had an e.l.f store open up?! I want one, hah. I have always like e.l.f products too, their stuff doesn’t break my face out. I use their midnight eye shadow and eyeliner pencil to do my eyeliner on the weekends.

    An e.l.f. store opened up at my local mall recently and I had no idea what I was missing ’til now! I love the little moisturizers on the bottom of the lipsticks.

    I really gotta look into their products more….it always worries me that products as cheap as elf’s might not be good for my skin but I definitely should still give it a try 🙂

    I feel like elf has really stepped up it’s game! Their products look much more high end since the last time I bought them in high school!

    Thanks for sharing your picks! I’m never sure what drugstore products will actually be quality and what will be a waste of money. I do use ELF’s eyebrow powder. I don’t like it quite as much as Anastasia, but I definitely appreciate the price point!
